    What a bunch of idiots. They've been showing clips on the news and it looks like most, if not all, of the protesters are white kids. I'm left of center, but I can't stand these SJW types. I'm sure minorities all over the city want nothing to do with these people.

    I agree. These tactics are pretty dumb.

    Radical White liberals are a loathsome group. Filled with self hatred and delusion

    They are their own worst enemies. And will be the first to perish from the catastrophe that are too come when they see that their "tolerant" world and beliefs cannot govern the world. Ultimately strength is the victor and the masses prefer the strong over the weak, as such modern day liberalism embodies weakness and thus it is to be destroyed and conquered by a new ideology.

    Shame they took us to this point. We may not all like the new strength

    Brainwashed delusional white kids who likely hate their country, culture, ethnicity, and worship all that is different.

    Probably the same group who consider themselves progressive, feminist, and pro gay, YET they support Islamic call to prayer in American schools (as long as it ain't Christian), and building mosques at ground zero because it is "PC" and "hip".

    NOT realizing that Islam HATES their ideology and way of life!

    I fail to see how being a pain in the ass to thousands of commuters is going to help your cause.

    And hopefully Katie Seitz was one of the arrested. Who cares that it's "non-violent"? People that protest in this manner are worse than the cops that they are protesting. Annoying average people who had nothing to do with the issue. Idiots. There's other ways to get your message out there without shutting down highways.

    This shit is still going on? I thought this fad would have died out by now? I guess these are the loser kids who catch on to the trend too late.

    Why do people stage obnoxious protests? Has anyone ever been swayed by being inconvenienced, browbeaten, berated, etc?

    I understand feeling strongly about an issue and wanting to motivate change. I don't understand how tactics that seem more likely to strengthen opposition get chosen as how to bring about the change.

    They're exercising their right to protest.

    I'd like to see a law in place that gives motorists the right to run these scumbag protesters over when they block major roads.

    I thought the police were the problem, so why don't the protesters harass them or create some kind of police watch unit where they follow the police around? These idiots obviously don't have jobs so they could use their time and daddy's money to organize a police watch group.

    The people eating brunch, shopping at malls, and commuting to work each day don't deserve to have their lives disrupted by these retards.

    If you screw up my already long commute to work (1hr 15min), I will hate your guts and despise everything you stand for.

    I get mad at people who get in accidents. I sure as hell won't have sympathy for your cause if you make my long day any longer.

    They have the right to protest, but not to block the roads.

    The message I am getting from these white protesters is that all black people are helpless victims who desperately need unemployed white college students to step in and help them.

    They may be organized by some political group. Could be a school project. Who knows.

    I know of a school in Nova Scotia, Canada where the professor gives a protesting assignment. The students have to choose a topic, organize the protest and then write about the topic they chose, how they went about setting up the protest and how they felt while protesting. They probably get bonus marks if it makes the news.

    I'm sure he's not the only "professor" who encourages that kind of silliness.
