As Twitchy reported yesterday, protesters angered by the acquittal of George Zimmerman managed to shut down a freeway in Los Angeles for almost half an hour until police were able to take control of the scene by firing non-lethal projectiles. That scene repeated itself today on State Route 288 in Houston, Texas, as hundreds chose to play in traffic in honor of Trayvon Martin.

Update:

Stopping traffic is becoming the protest of choice. KTVU is reporting that Interstate 880 in Oakland, Calif., is blocked by protesters as well.
