Earlier today there was what was being reported as an armed standoff between a group of men and Massachusetts police. That has now ended and arrests have been made:
A group of eight armed men refused to comply with police officers following a traffic stop Saturday on Interstate 95 in Massachusetts. The standoff shut down the interstate in both directions. Two men were arrested and police are searching for the others. https://t.co/LjeuqQTR5W

Can you imagine if 11 heavily armed white men had taken over a section of a highway. It’s all CNN would talk about for months.
