Black Lives Matter activists always have this smug and pretentious way about them. They think they have the moral high ground and they do not. Every once in a while a video will emerge online showing an activist getting destroyed by someone. Well, this time it is by a judge who was sentencing them.
One of the most common forms of protest for these Black Lives Matter activists is blocking or barricading interstate highways that have heavy traffic. It is also very dangerous and stupid. Even a three year old knows that you do not play in traffic because you can get hurt.
Back in the summer protestors were jailed for blocking the highway and they even spent jail time after being arrested. It was a protest, among many, in Richmond, Virginia. They were among many other race related protests in retaliation for the deaths of African American men at the hands of the police.
It is believed that Philando Castile and Alton Sterling’s deaths are what inspired such protests. Thirteen different protesters blocked interstate 95 and screamed “Black Lives Matter” as well as “no justice, no peace, no racist police.” Police appeared within about an hour and made arrests while they were blocking traffic during rush hour.
All of the people involved pleaded guilty to the charges placed against them. Which was illegally blocking traffic. All of them were sentenced to five days in prison. Which is much more than most judges do! Mostly people just get a slap on the wrist but it is nice to know that at least one judge is taking these protests and riots seriously.
Perhaps if all people who blocked traffic and committed similar crimes ere charged with similar crimes then they would not be continually breaking the law. They are let free which incentivizes them to continue their bad behavior.
