What is with Black Lives Matter thinking they have the right to disrupt normal people’s lives?
They think they can steal and loot from businesses.
And then burn them to the ground!
They also think they can stand on busy freeways and stop traffic.
Well the Washington State Patrol didn’t let them get away with it!
They arrested nine BLM protesters this weekend for blocking traffic on the I-5 freeway.
Take a look at clips of the arrests:
Here's the details from KOMO News in Seattle on the story:
Nine drivers have been arrested by the Washington State Patrol for blocking all southbound lanes of I-5 on the Ship Canal Bridge during a protest Friday morning.
The protest began just before 11 a.m. and video from social media showed cars parked on the freeway to block traffic as several people got out and begin a protest in the middle of the street.
The freeway was blocked for about a half hour and Trooper Rick Johnson says they've since arrested nine drivers and are in the process of impounding nine vehicles.
The Blaze has more on the story:
Protesters raised their fists in defiance and danced on the highway as one supporter played a trombone.
"Make yourself independent from all the dependencies that America places amongst you!" said one protester through a bullhorn. "This is not a cry for help, this is a shake to wake you up to reality!"
Washington State Patrol troopers arrived and arrested some of the drivers of the cars in order to clear the way for traffic. In one altercation captured on video, about five troopers forcefully dragged one driver out a car for the arrest.
In the video, another protester argues with a trooper who yells at her to "stand back!"
Instead, the female protester, who is black, berates a black trooper with a racial epithet.
"You are a f***ing house n***a! You are a house n***a!" she yells.
Trooper Rick Johnson, a spokesman for the Washington State Patrol, said on Twitter that nine cars were impounded and traffic resumed after the arrests. He also indicated that the traffic backed up from the protest led to a collision, which hastened the decision to shut down the demonstration.
"The information I have is the distraction of the freeway being shut down in the [southbound] lanes was a contributing factor in this collision," said Johnson.
Maybe these BLM radicals will finally learn their lesson!
They pulled a similar stunt back in June when they shutdown a highway in Seattle.
