From the Los Angeles Daily News this morning:

LOS ANGELES — A few protesters briefly blocked traffic on the northbound 101 Freeway in downtown Los Angeles before being hustled off of the roadway by authorities.

The protesters unveiled an anti-Trump banner shortly after 8 a.m. near the Los Angeles Street onramp to the freeway, the California Highway Patrol reported.

Five protesters were taken into custody, and the lanes were quickly cleared, according to the CHP.

Also, the lady protestor videoing this and giving us her invaluable commentary has her finger part-way over the lens.

When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.

Kind of a One Riot, One Ranger moment for the CHP.

Here’s the group claiming credit for having “organized” this freeway stoppage:

The five banner-holders were arrested on charges of misdemeanour trespass with bail set at $5,000.

    Trump ironically is by traditional Republican standards a moderate. These ppl are just so far off in loony land that they think a union type northern Republican is "a fascist"....

  2. Once they block traffic in a pro-deep state demonstration they have gone over to the dark side as far as the driving public is concerned, and they have thereby outlawed themselves.

    Good point, as people hate traffic just as much as they hate the cntrl-left. I think the key thing here is that Ponch and John, errr, C*H*I*P*s, took the side of law and order. That's probably their natural inclination anyway, if they are white men, but think about Charlottesville and the anarcho-tyranny that went on there.

    It's great to see the cops siding with the law over the cntrl-left here, as it's so rare. It brings me back to watching videos of CA Governor Ronald Reagan ordering tear-gassing of protesters in Berzerkely. I love the smell of tear-gas in the morning... smells like victory.

That is at least as important as the Zeroth Amendment. It is one of those unalienable rights.

    Therefore, this police action is Nazi.

    The problem is that hitting these human roadblocks still damages your car.
    Pass a law that makes them liable? Then you're getting somewhere.
    , @RadicalCenter
    YES. Particularly given that once we allow our vehicle to be stopped, we are at the mercy of rocks, metal pipes, bats, whatever the thugs have at their disposal, being dragged out of the vehicle, etc.

    We live right in downtown LA, and I am never stopping my vehicle for a crowd of thugs blocking the road, especially if my wife and children are with me.

    , @Alfa158
    Legal definition:
    "False imprisonment occurs when a person is restricted in their personal movement within any area without justification or consent."
    The person blocking your car is committing a felony and the driver is justified in attempting to escape from the crime being committed against them. Technically speaking, the driver could leave their car in gear and slowly move forward pushing the felon out of the way without causing harm.
    In practice of course the felons will freak out and start pounding on your car, while the cops will get annoyed that you are taking action that creates bad optics and probably arrest you. The police prefer that victims and bystanders be as passive as possible so they aren't complicating things for them. Cops really hate complexity.

    It should be legal to run over anyone deliberately and illegally blocking a public road.
     
    Thanks Andrew. Exactly right. These people are not "non-violent", they are essentially kidnapping thousands of people for hours--or at least trying to. You are trying to physically imprison me ... i'm going to do what I can to stop you. (These folks have been lucky they generally haven't ended up with a half-Irish hothead like me in the front row. I'm basically a pretty whimpy guy, but if you get in my face and poke me, then I tend to blow my top. Not a great trait, but in this case it would be "protest ending".)


    BTW, there's a metaphor in there--I think--with the behavior of the woman--again, I'm guessing--driving the black SUV on the left. She's just a complete pussy and by being such a pussy is actually enabling these goons. Analogize to the white woman problem we have.
    , @Wilkey
    It should be legal to run over anyone deliberately and illegally blocking a public road.

    It should be. The shitty part is that no small number of drivers are harmed and even killed when they hit deer and other animals and the animal comes flying through the window, colliding with the driver. Hitting a 180 pound human at freeway speeds will probably kill the human, but the driver is taking a big risk, too. We can change liability laws but not the laws of physics.
    , @TWS
    Yep. Make them liable for all damages and costs as well. If emergency vehicles are blocked or tied up make it a class A felony. We'll see how many of the idiots will keep up this low level guerrilla warfare.

    People will be happy to see them returned across the border with an air launched cannon if they keep this up.

    They always mount their protests in places where the possibility of encountering a Trump voter is like the possibility of encountering Roy Moore voters at the Castro Street Halloween Parade (or like the possibility of encountering Moore at a senior citizens home)

    Some resistance. Why don't they try mounting a protest in the Inland Empire or Southern Orange County?

    No, no, no. You have to make it much more personal.

    How about "a place where Trump has no more chance of winning an election than Bibi Netanyahu would have in Broward County."

    known as "kettling" over in Old London Town, it's the preferred ordeal inflicted on anti-Iraq-War protesters, trade unionists and what have you by the police.

    It should be legal to run over anyone deliberately and illegally blocking a public road.

    It should be legal to run over anyone deliberately and illegally blocking a public road.

    It should be. The shitty part is that no small number of drivers are harmed and even killed when they hit deer and other animals and the animal comes flying through the window, colliding with the driver. Hitting a 180 pound human at freeway speeds will probably kill the human, but the driver is taking a big risk, too. We can change liability laws but not the laws of physics.

    Yes, but hitting the "protester"--i.e. attempted kidnapper--at highway speeds in not required.

    One can just ease your car into them slowly giving them plenty of time to think better of their protest and get the heck out of the way. Deciding to stay and take a trip under your vehicle becomes their choice. They've then had the choice to a) not decide to attempt this protest by kidnapping in the first place and b) abandon it when you take measures to escape their kidnapping. Their failure to do either is what injures/kills them.

    Volvos are the only cars that features steel surrounding the passenger cabin that is infused with boron, effectively creating an almost impenetrable "roll cage" for the passengers, making it the safest car for hitting illegal immigrant protestors at freeway speeds that you can buy.

    The considerable discount offered by most car insurance companies, that recognizes Volvo's consistently high safety statistics, significantly offsets the long-term costs of ownership, while the confidence that you can safely clear a path on the freeway at will is priceless:

    can the narrator of this video be fast-tracked back to Chihuahua?
     
    I would have guessed Oaxaca.

    In either case, "her people" are definitely not the inventors of a wheel culture. This fact and the prevailing moon phase may explain her instinctive urge to interfere with wheeled vehicles driven by Yanquis.

    I admit it, Chihuahua is just the first funny-sounding Mexican place that came to mind.

    Definitely a Mexican accent. Pronouncing “taser” with a soft s is a dead giveaway.

    Well that just seems UNFAIR. When conservatives go to the “Middle of the Road” they just lose elections or are shot by people who they “outreach” to. This has to be some kind of mistake. Either due to a lack of funding for “education” or the complete misunderstanding of metaphors by people who are “functionally literate”.

    I'd have reckoned Aoxomoxoa, but I'm not good at this.

    Speaking of Aoxomoxoa, and since this story is from California, how can one not insert something from the 1969 album:

    Yep. Make them liable for all damages and costs as well. If emergency vehicles are blocked or tied up make it a class A felony. We’ll see how many of the idiots will keep up this low level guerrilla warfare.

    People will be happy to see them returned across the border with an air launched cannon if they keep this up.

    Oh, please. In a real fascist regime, these people would be considered lucky if they were the *only* ones to end up disappearing without a trace within a few days.

    Things are going to get pretty ugly in this country when all the jobs that could possibly keep a person of 90 IQ busy are automated, have time to listen to whoever, and in all likelihood, will be angry enough to do so. The proles don't spark the revolution, but they are the ones who can keep it going.

    No kidding. Trump-Pence regime? If it was a regime the terrorists would have been cleared off the road with rubber bullets, fire trucks and paddywagons. If reality matched their rhetoric they’d be self deporting so fast there’d be a standing traffic jam from the border to Oregon.

    One reason among several hundred, ranging from background to personality to political interests, that the Trump/Hitler comparison fails: to put it very, *very* mildly, Hitler would have people blocking the highways in protest dead or in camps wishing they were dead faster than you can sing "We Shall Overcome". Trump is busy fantasizing that he never ran for President and was back on the Howard Stern show.

    Thanks Andrew. Exactly right. These people are not "non-violent", they are essentially kidnapping thousands of people for hours--or at least trying to. You are trying to physically imprison me ... i'm going to do what I can to stop you. (These folks have been lucky they generally haven't ended up with a half-Irish hothead like me in the front row. I'm basically a pretty whimpy guy, but if you get in my face and poke me, then I tend to blow my top. Not a great trait, but in this case it would be "protest ending".)


    BTW, there's a metaphor in there--I think--with the behavior of the woman--again, I'm guessing--driving the black SUV on the left. She's just a complete pussy and by being such a pussy is actually enabling these goons. Analogize to the white woman problem we have.
