Apparently it’s now legal to block traffic, scream through a bullhorn at drivers while jumping on said cars driving down the street where they have a legal right to be.
Standing in the middle of the road seems like an incredibly stupid thing to do to begin with.
A belligerent group of loud, Trans Lives Matter protesters were blocking traffic over the death of a violent St. Louis transgender woman named Kenneth ‘Kiwi’ Herring age 30, when a man driving home tried to get through their illegal traffic block. The Riverfront Times called him an “impatient driver”.
The white male driver refused to stop upon their orders. The mob then gathered around his car, jumping on it. They appear to be hitting it. The rioters claim it didn’t happen that way so watch the clip and decide.
Three had minor injuries – scrapes. The driver has been arrested for felony fleeing or, as we see it, not stopping for their illegal and violent road block.
Police spokeswoman Schron Jackson told the Riverfront Times: “Tonight, a group of protesters marched from the Transgender Memorial to the intersection of Manchester and Sarah where they blocked traffic in all directions.”
“A vehicle approached, stopped, honked its horn and attempted to drive around the protesters.”
“The protesters surrounded the vehicle and began striking it with their hands and a flag pole. Several protesters also kicked and jumped on top of the vehicle.”
“She said the driver of the vehicle – a white male – then drove away when two women and a man ‘fell from the vehicle’.”
The illegal road blockers were not arrested.
If police aren’t going to enforce the law, we are truly a lawless society.
Watch the video.
As the video shows, this driver was simply trying to pass through and the lawbreaking thugs, aka “demonstrators,” didn’t like it. He was laying on his horn to get them to move out of the way and to alert them to the fact he was coming through. They then jumped in front of him and onto his car as well as pounding on it.
He did leave and appears culpable but he’s charged with a felony and these thugs are allowed to break the law unscathed.
What do you think?
