From Pioneer Planet (local newspaper):
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Demonstrators are stopping traffic on Interstate-35W near downtown Minneapolis.
Some protesters are fast-food workers asking for higher wages and union rights. Others are protesting a grand jury's decision not to charge a white police officer in the chokehold death of a black man in New York.
KSTP-TV reported the demonstrators were marching north on Interstate 35W. At one point, the demonstrators lay down and climbed on barriers.
Traffic was unable to move while demonstrators blocked the busy interstate Thursday.
I suspect there are some PETA people and other "what-the-hell-got-nothing-better-to-do" folks out there too.
rest in peace Corporal Bradley Coy 06/08/92-10/24/14
NAH. They need to have their butts rolled down the street with 150-175 lbs of water pressure from a 2 1/2 inch line by the fired dept!
Amazing how much time a person has if he/she don't waste it on having a job.
This is the 3rd demonstration I've heard of like this. Blocking major traffic. Where's the cops?
that has to be illegal.
In Memory of Cpl. Bradley Coy
Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
Sail on, Hunting Hawk. You were one of a kind.
I have to admit Michael Brown deserved to get shot, but Erik Garner did not deserve to die for selling a single cigarette. The officer probably should not have used a choke hold and they probably should have provided medical attention immediately. The law they were enforcing is the biggest problem with the case. I watched the video and the police did not seem to waste much time talking to the suspect before they got physical.
My step son, without getting into details, at 24 told me he won't get out of bed for less than 16 an hour !
Im memory of my brother and fellow Marine, Semper Fidelis. Rest well my friend
