Blocking Traffic May Be Dangerous For Violent Protestors
There's a time to be nice and understanding, then there's a time to take out the garbage. With threats from ISIS and now the blatant murder of police officers, the time is coming when people will shoot first and ask questions later.
If you want to protest, do so peacefully, without blocking traffic and endangering others. If not, I believe the time will come where the benefit of the doubt will fall by the wayside.
Blocking traffic may put a persons life in danger of being accidentally run over. Moreover, traffic disruption may cause someone who is being rushed to the hospital to die.
The general public, for the most part, simply want to go to work and complete their daily obligations. To expose the public to the few idiots that want to cause trouble is disgusting.
The message to the trouble makers should be that if they continue, their days are numbered, There are more peaceful people who own guns than troublemakers and the fed up public may be wont to turn their backs on a thug who was accidentally shot and killed

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Two men were digging a ditch on a very hot day. One said to the other, "Why are we down in this hole digging a ditch when our boss is standing up there in the shade of a tree?" The other man responded, "I don't know, I'll ask him."
So he climbed out of the hole and went to his boss and asked. "Why are we digging in the hot sun and you're standing in the shade?" The boss answered, "Intelligence." The worker said, "What do you mean, ‘intelligence'?"
The boss said, "Well, I'll show you. I'll put my hand on this tree and I want you to hit it with your fist as hard as you can." The ditch digger took a mighty swing and tried to hit the boss' hand. The boss removed his hand and the ditch digger hit the tree. The boss said, "That's intelligence!"
The ditch digger went back to his hole. His friend asked, "What did he say?" His friend said, "He said we are down here because of intelligence." The friend asked, "What's intelligence?" The ditch digger put his hand on his face and said, "Take your shovel and hit my hand."
