A video is causing a lot of outrage and sparking tweets to Governor Greg Abbott to take control of the situation in Plano, Texas. Watch as a frustrated man gets out of his vehicle to confront Black Lives Matter protesters who are blocking the intersection (with a baby stroller?), then keep watching as the police there do nothing except enable the protesters. (Language warning)

They’re showing up with block cars, baby strollers, vests, PC’s and guns and blocking traffic. If someone tries to drive through they’ll shoot and claim self defense. They’re illegally detaining people and the cops do nothing. Looks like they’re winning. pic.twitter.com/9CgJuJEkbp

Violent street communists now seize control of portions of American cities and the cops show up to make sure nobody hurts them for doing it.
Man, is this gonna end badly. The next 20 years of this nation will look nothing like the last 20. https://t.co/Em2cIemv4c

And police are there and doing nothing?

I just left MN for this crap.. I'll be damned if I'm going to put up with it in my new home.
Plano police defending the mob, outrageous.

The cops just allowed this?

Doesn’t Texas have strict laws regarding people restricting the flow of traffic and harassing motorists? I guess not 😡
— TTL America 🇺🇸 (@TTLAmerica) May 8, 2021
Why there was only 1 cop there is beyond me. These people were blocking a roadway which is illegal. The police better get a handle on this crap before the citizens take it into their own hands.

They have no right to do this. Law enforcement better step in to stop their nonsense. Soon.

The cops *were* doing something.
They followed the peaceful guy back to his car. Almost stalking.

1. God bless the big guy in blue. 2. Why is this cop doing nothing? He should have 30 more cops there to break this up. 3. @GregAbbott_TX Do not allow this crap in the great state of Tx or Tx will be great no more.

You deserve what you tolerate. I thought this was Portland at first – can’t believe this happened in Texas.
— Viriathus (@run_keksey) May 8, 2021
We’ll get to Portland shortly.
Good thing there’s a “Legal Observer” there. 🙄 What a sinister, terrifying farce… Is this a society about to “build back better” ?

This is their goal. Agitation. They want all this caught on camera. That's their Marxist methodology.

If they interfere with an ambulance, and someone dies because of it, can they be prosecuted for manslaughter

@GregAbbott_TX do something about this. Roads should not be able to be blocked and the police should not take the rioters side. Arrest the people blocking roads. People have to get to work, the store, pickup kids from school etc.

What happened to getting a permit before blocking a public street?
— Carla Venezia (@carla_venezia) May 8, 2021
I like how they were telling the cop to "do your job" when they wanted the man arrested.

We thought Black Lives Matter didn’t want any more police.
An unarmed man gets a pistol pointed at him and the guy isn't arrested? pic.twitter.com/GtiNbDzSKx

"The cops do nothing"
Incorrect, the cops protect the criminals.
— Fredgiblet 🇺🇸 (@fredgiblet) May 8, 2021
The kits, the communications, and the teamwork is very impressive considering this is not a trained element. Just a peaceful protest, with AKs.
— Andrew C 🌞🔋🇵🇷🇺🇸 (@BlueSushi8) May 8, 2021
Local authorities allowing this to escalate do not know what they’re playing with.
— Don🇺🇸 (@Don95014505) May 8, 2021
The laws against unlawful imprisonment should be enforced.
All of these people blocking traffic should be arrested, charged, convicted, sentenced, and sent to prison.
— #2A Wisdom (@2AWisdom) May 8, 2021
I’m all for defunding the police now. They are useless. Let people deal with these mobs themselves. Cops will just get in the way.
— High speed four-seater (@lonelychairlift) May 8, 2021
The moment they block a thoroughfare the police should step in and clear them out. It's not only illegal, it's incredibly dangerous to obstruct traffic by force.
Disturbing the peace also applies, as well as reckless endangerment.
More than enough justification to arrest them.
