    Did something change in the last 40 years where civil disobedience is no longer the ONLY method that has actually gotten social change in the country?

    Shutting down roadways and disrupting the economic functioning of the system has been the only way major movements have succeeded. From bus boycotts, to marching on the freeways, they were key tactics in the woman's suffrage movement and the Civil Rights movement. We're supposed to not use them because you just NEED to get to Walmart?

    do you think everyone on the road is heading to walmart? do you think it's "safe" to start moving onto the FWY's? just accidents waiting to happen.

    Why would the police point weapons at peaceful protesters? The protesters and the reporter said that the protest was peaceful. Do you have information which disputes that?

    we only have one side of the story here, from a reporter who has no clue what a machine gun is. too many morons are blocking FWYs creating danger for all involved.

    The Baton Rouge police department is the same one that shot to death Alton Sterling. A man who was on the ground, and pinioned by officers. At some point one of the officers yelled "he's got a gun!" (he didn't) and they shot him to death.

    Understand also that Louisiana police officers, "just doing their job", have killed thirty eight people, most of them suffering from various mental illnesses, since 2015. In a year and a half, Louisiana cops have killed almost forty people.

    There is something deeply, deeply wrong with that.

    You are upset that people are yelling vulgar and offensive things about the police. I suggest that killing almost forty mostly troubled and vulnerable people is at the very least worthy of public criticism.

    not a problem at all with civil protest, getting on the FWY however puts both protesters & drivers lives at risk. so yeah protest all you like, I can support that, but don't be an extreme moron while protesting.

    AFAIK, what these protesters were doing. And if the protesters were peaceable, then the police had no business threatening the protesters with firearms-- would you agree?

    Look at the pictures from BR, it looks more like Beirut than a poor southern city.

    @jkcerda, do you think it's OK for the police to aim rifles at protestors that are not violent?

    Would you please stop using the word retard? You have been asked by a member previously.

    I will agree that getting on the freeway can cause some danger, at the very beginning. After traffic has slowed or stopped, however, it's just like any other day sitting in a traffic jam. They tried to do it in Atlanta the other day, but police blocked the ramp down. The entire protest was peaceful, and even the mayor came into the middle of it to give a speech.

    Will you stop with the retard ****? My four-year-old son would be considered retarded since he has Autism.

    A manic depressive will kill a person just as easily as someone who isn't. Are we going to have cops hand out and score the Altman Self-Rating Mania Scale or the Goldberg Bipolar spectrum screening quiz before they determine how to handle someone?

    Sure getting to work seems more important, that's until it's one of your family that gets unjustly killed by police. People are freaking selfish.

    That same guy pushing the protesters is exactly the type police will shoot without hesitation. Too bad he's too selfish to think about that.

    If you work at a job that won't excuse a protest making you late, you were probably late multiple times already or have the most unstable job ever.

    Yes..and blocking them for days if necessary..it's called public disobedience if you don't like it go pound sand.

    I think it's one of the only tried and true effective civil disobedience tactics that have ever worked in American history, so yes. yes it is acceptable.

    There is no wrong or right. There's only action. And I'm pretty sure, no matter what the action is, there will be those that complain.
