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.

  • itsatax

    That looks about as safe as attacking a stranger because he sorta annoyed you.

  • Jan

    Terrible. What if there was a medical emergency & someone was being driven to a hospital, such as a woman in labor. An ambulance could not get through.

    • Jarhead83

      You think these pukes care about that? Buncha copycat hooligans…

      • objectivefactsmatter

        But don’t you dare try to correct them. That would be racist.

    • TomJB

      Maybe time to start affixing cow catchers to the fronts of emergency vehicles. Come to think of it, maybe Ford will offer them as an option soon on all trucks…

      • objectivefactsmatter

        That’s “social justice” I can support.

    • Maus

      Yes, 288 is the main access route to the 40+ hospitals and numerous doctors’ offices and clinics in the Texas Medical Center. I’m sure people were also missing important doctor appointments, outpatient surgeries and chemotherapy. No, you never drive up Fannin to get to the TMC if you are coming from the north, east or downtown. Keep in mind too, that some of the specialists have a 2-3 month wait to get an appointment, so rescheduling isn’t an easy thing to do.

      Idiots. Try blocking a railroad track next time. I hear it’s much more devastatin’ to Da Man.

    • Amy Brown

      That happened. A grandmother was trying to rush her granddaughter to the hospital and when she rolled down her window to ask if they could get through, they hit her

    • Vennoye

      They picked 288 because they would not have lasted on 45 or 59….would have probably looked like Frogger!! People going home on 288 usually have long drives to get home….sure they are impressed!!

    • AMSilver

      Additionally, cars produce more CO2 when idling than driving, so that compounds the ‘environmental damage.’ But standing on the sidewalk with a sign doesn’t involve exerting control over/punishing others, so it’s just not appealing to these thugs.

      • Jessica

        I apologise. That was quite a gross generalisation wasn’t it? As an outsider I’m still grappling with the whole focus on race – it just doesn’t make any sense to me why most people are focusing on the race of the people involved and not the actual crime, or lack thereof.

          • Jessica

            Haha no we don’t. I remember being confused at an instance in, I think it was 2008, when the American media went into a huge uproar over a sketch an Australian comedy group did on the TV show ‘Hey Hey It’s Saturday’. The group performed a song from the Jackson Five but as they were Indian, they decided to paint their faces black but the guy who played Michael was painted white. Suddenly Australia was called racist and I didn’t see anything wrong with what they were doing. They weren’t trying to insult black people, they were just getting into character. We really don’t have much race issues in Australia to the extent America seems.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        Civil libertarians in America are conservatives today. You do want to conserve your liberties against the encroachment from the state I assume.

        You just reject the conservative “brand” for irrational reasons.

        • Figgy Pudding

          No, my reasons are purely rational. They’re authoritarian and I’m not. They’re Abrahamic and I’m not. They’re willfully tools of the Israel lobby and I am not.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            “They’re authoritarian and I’m not. ”

            You’re an anarchist? American conservatives want to conserve the values of the constitution.

            “They’re Abrahamic and I’m not.”

            Not necessarily. Islam is also Abrahamic. That doesn’t make them conservative. Conservatives don’t demand faith in God from others.

            “They’re willfully tools of the Israel lobby and I am not.”

            I see. OK. You’re a lunatic then. You’re an anarchist or an anti-Semite hiding behind the label of libertarian.

            Neither position is rational.

          • Figgy Pudding

            If you want to go into labels I’m a National Democratic Socialist. I embrace American-style federalism; I think we need to undo a majority of the things this government has done since the Spanish-American war and we definitely need to re-write the 14th amendment.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            How did you conclude that conservatives are authoritarian and you are not?

            And if you want to undo big government, how does that fit with your “socialist” beliefs?

          • Figgy Pudding

            I’m not authoritarian because I have no interest in controlling people nor the desire to be controlled. Hierachy outside of a military environment is poisonous to liberty. My thoughts on governance are to reduce or eliminate collusion between business concerns and the representative democracy.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            “I’m not authoritarian because I have no interest in controlling people nor the desire to be controlled.”

            Personally? What do you consider authoritarian?

            “Hierachy outside of a military environment is poisonous to liberty.”

            That’s pretty simplistic. But noted.

            So how are you going to implement socialist policies without coercion and hierarchy? That doesn’t square at all. It’s grossly contradictory.

            “My thoughts on governance are to reduce or eliminate collusion between business concerns and the representative democracy.”

            That’s simplistic too but I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume what you want to eliminate is corruption.

            I’m going to suggest that you keep reading diverse sources and then critiques of those sources to understand some of the implications of what you advocate.

    • http://redstate.com/ midwestconservative

      Its always good to see a International Conservative, especially from a Nation and Good ally like Australia. Its a shame Your Government doesn’t respect the Right to Self Defense.

      • Jessica

        Or capital punishment…but is that going too far?

        • http://redstate.com/ midwestconservative

          Capital Punishment should be used in the cases of first degree murder. I didn’t know Australia abolished it, I do hear however that Australia has strict abortion regulations. America is weird in that we regulate tattoo parlors more than we do Abortion Clinics.

          • Jessica

            Our former Prime Minister made abortion policies quite strict which I am very thankful for. In terms of capital punishment, I typically only agree with its use on serial killers and mass murderers and severely sick and unrepentant killings. Australia abolished capital punishment decades ago which is a shame because the taxpayers have had to pay Julian Knights’ legal fees so he could fight to get a TV and computer with internet in his cell.

          • http://redstate.com/ midwestconservative

            I can agree with that position, though it says something about the human condition when Bernie Madoff is viewed as the scum of the earth and given 180 some years in prison no parole, but a serial rapist/murderer is just misunderstood, and should be allowed parole.

          • Jessica

            I had to look him up to understand the point you were making. Very true.

      I’m inclined to agree. I’m glad I don’t have my driver’s license yet and I didn’t end up out there.

    What does “justice for Trayvon” mean and exactly how is it different from “justice”? Can we PLEASE stop pretending following someone in order to keep an eye on them is a crime but sucker punching someone, beating him in the face and smashing his head into cement is not? The whole point of this trial was to determine whether Zimmerman committed a crime or not when he pulled the trigger. The jury said no. So the only person who committed a crime that night was Trayvon Martin when he saw a fat, soft Zimmerman and made the lethal error in judgment of assuming it meant he was defenseless and chose to assault him.

        Here’s a hint: Of the 650 tweets that have originated from me or a retweet of mine, the word “Hollywood” appears in precisely zero of them, and that’s always been the case.

        Is there even the slightest scintilla of evidence that you have which indicates that I “hate Hollywood”, or do you simply have a penchant for spouting off on things about which you know nothing?

        Should we perhaps put you “in the box” of that particular crowd?

However, this stopping traffic on busy highways is really dumb, and it does seem to be a move that could possibly create a violent situation or like someone said above, what if there was an emergency situation? There are better ways to do this.

It’s people like these who keep our kids down – you keep saying we’re victims, we’re going act like victims, instead of going to school and getting an education. Keep telling our kids they’re powerless and helpless, and they’ll pick up guns because it’s the only power they think they’ll have. Don’t give me any psycho-babble about socio-economic b.s. Immigrants come here, have nothing and succeed. Don’t buy into the liberal bs, that’s what locks you in perpetual poverty. If you spent as much energy shutting down freeways as you do studying, you won’t have out of control thugs.

    Just an excuse for some people to cause a disturbance for people not attached to their cause. Really smart and will earn them no good will from anyone on that freeway. And they are in Texas, a conceal & carry state, so they better not touch or pound on any of those cars. Cars are considered to be covered by the CASTLE DOCTRINE and they don’t want to find out about that the wrong way, as has already been upheld by the courts..

    Hit them! I bet half those fools don’t even know the details of the case…damn shame

    Well shut them down make people lose jobs and delay shipments of food and other items maybe even delay medical or emergency vehicle’s getting to a crisis. Maybe when some one in need of medical care will die. Hopefully of will be a loved one of a protester what revenge they will have. I would have to say too bad too sad you just killed your dad. If you protest protest somewhere you don’t endanger others lives or your own. Anyway walking on a freeway is illegal arrest them all let them go to trial or pay a fine that will help California out of debt.

    When your arguments fail, just block the freeway. Or break windows. Or steal from merchants. Or random citizens.

    While I dont agree with the protest, calling these people idiots or just assuming they’re all jobless is very irresponsible. What happen with the Zimmerman case is very tragic and hits home with alot of people who know someone who could be Trayvon Martin. I’m not here to argue the verdict, but I don’t have a problem with these people deciding to show there displeasure by protesting.

    Maybe they should just keep driving.

    As a black person from Houston who is frequently on 288… all of you talking about “omg so many people missed their hospital appointments” as if you were there, watching everyone who was upset about missing their appointments. This was a display of civil disobedience. This is in our constitution. This country served an injustice with the Stand your ground law, jailing a black woman for 20 years and letting a White man with about 25% hispanic in his blood (IF that much) walk free. So shut up, these people were justified in what they did.

    • Jan

      No, they weren’t justified. And it isn’t just hospital appointments that were missed. What about all other kinds of apppointments in which people were inconvenienced?,,They inconvenienced a lot of people who may not have supported the jury’s decision. Do you think it was OK for that grandmother, trying to get her granddaughter to the hospital, to be delayed in getting medical help? Her granddaughter had breathing problems & may have died. What did THEY have to do with the verdict? These protests do nothing to help the races get along better. BTW, I heard a little bit about the story of the black woman jailed for 20 years. I don’t know the circumstances, but the consensus of opinion is that she had no business being sent to prison, and I would agree 100% if she was defending herself.
