Shutting down traffic is now standard operating procedure for #BlackLivesMatter protesters. In New York City, the sheer volume of the mob was more than enough to close down the Brooklyn Bridge in both directions. In Massachusetts, it took fewer than 25 protesters to shut down all lanes of I-93 thanks to the ingenious use of chains and 1,200 lb. douchebarrels.
What looks to be an exclusively white group of #ReclaimMLK protesters in Seattle on Monday afternoon found a comfortable middle ground, relying on only chains and a few concrete blocks to thwart police as they blocked traffic with their bodies. Chains, meet saws.
