MSN News: Dozens Arrested as Protests Against Police Violence Continue

BBu8M0J.jpg
Dozens of protesters were arrested and several police were injured Saturday night as tense protests over police force against African-Americans continued across the nation.

Police used smoke bombs to clear demonstrators blocking Interstate 94 in Saint Paul, Minnesota, late Saturday, while more than 30 people were arrested in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Both cities continue reel after the deaths of two black men at the hands of white officers last week.

In Saint Paul, protesters chanted the name of Philando Castile, 32, who was fatally shot by a St. Anthony police officer in Falcon Heights on Wednesday.

Police said on Twitter that people on an overpass were "throwing objects at officers, dumping liquid on officers" and others were throwing rocks and a construction material called rebar. Police also said a molotov cocktail was thrown at officers.

Police were heard telling the crowd, "leave the interstate now or you'll be subject to a use of force" shortly after 10:30 p.m. Police blamed "aggressors" for throwing rocks and other objects at officers, and said police were using "marking rounds."

Police said at least five officers officers in all were injured by thrown objects, but none of the injuries were serious. Authorities used smoke bombs when 200 protesters refused to leave the roadway just after midnight. By 12:45 a.m. Sunday, police said they were clearing debris from the road in order to reopen the highway.

Authorities said arrests had been made, but it was not clear how many.

Can you imagine if today all the police just did a sit in and said you deal with these thug protesters and the rest of them. In a few days people would truly be appreciating police even more then they have before. And then the public would be demanding more loudly that these blm pieces of trash be dealt with more harshly when they protest in a illegal fashion.

The police should protest and walk away from it all, then see how everything works out

There was a short on Sky News this morning on the difference between the police tactics between the UK and the USA. It was an eye opener seeing how the UK police are able to deal with situations without using deadly force. Then again you also have to consider that not everyone in the UK are armed to the teeth as if they entering a war zone.

It does however beg the question about the US gun policies.

Sure you can but when you have someone like obama who defends terrorists over police you end up with all the shot and dead police that have been dying this past week because of his policies.
How is absolutely everything that happens over there somehow is Obama's fault?

Over there? You mean right here in America. Words fuel hate and fueling it he has been doing a lot of that since the first innocent cop got pronounced guilty by Obama when he said the cop acted stupidly and then had his lame beer summit.

I wouldn't blame them if they did. And what do you want to bet the idiots out there protesting and hurting cops would be the first one on the phone calling for help when one of their 'neighbors' started looting their home.

Looting there home, you mean when a neighborhood gets together in armed organized fashion and begins taking out these low life BLM people. That is when they would beg for police.
