Ferguson Protesters Attempting To Shut Down Highway Throw Rocks, Concrete Blocks, Bottles At Police Officers

Let’s just say irony isn’t their strong point! This week, Ferguson demonstrators attempted to shut down the highway as a protest against police brutality. And is there a better way to protest brutality than throwing rocks, bottles, and concrete blocks at the cops?

A planned highway shutdown fell through Wednesday as a wall of officers in riot gear kept Ferguson police shooting protesters from walking onto Interstate 70 in a nearby St. Louis suburb during the late afternoon commute.

State troopers and St. Louis city and county officers warned the roughly 150 demonstrators who gathered to stay out of the road as they protested last month’s shooting of Michael Brown, a black, unarmed 18-year-old, by a white officer. There were nearly as many officers as demonstrators.

Highway Patrol Sgt. Al Nothum said that 35 people were arrested, most on charges of unlawful assembly. Nothum said protesters threw rocks, concrete blocks, bricks and bottles, leading to four charges of assault on a law enforcement officer.

But I’m sure the mainstream media will try to make this violent demonstration look like the March on Selma.
