    The first link there was no ambulance blocked, it was a big what-if article.

    The second was never settled because witnesses said the police were the cause of the delay, saying protesters were clearing the way until police in riot gear started chasing protester who were already moving.
    Clement was charged with inciting a riot, disorderly conduct, interfering with an officer and reckless use of the highway by a pedestrian. He was released on a $5,000 bail and was scheduled to appear at New Haven Superior Court on Monday, February 13.

    But an attorney representing the protesters said police are responsible for problems at the demonstration, including the delay of the ambulance stuck in traffic. Attorney Patricia Kane said protesters had asked police to inform them if emergency vehicles needed to get through — and that officers didn’t do so. Kane said she has been told the patient was a woman in labor.

    Did you watch the video in the first link? That's rhetorical because I know you didn't. Watch it.

    And of course the attorney for the protestors would blame it on the police when her client is the one that got arrested. Regardless, they were standing in the middle of the highway in CT where it's illegal to do that. The lawyer can dress it up all she wants, but she knows her clients were in the wrong.

    I read the article. Why bother watching when I can comprehend better and read faster than the video? And why would the video's content not be in the article? Sounds dumb.

    The point of the second wasn't that walking on the highway was illegal, it was that they held back an ambulance which no one has been able to prove was due to the protest. So again, prove it or you gotta find a better moment to use as an example.

    I'd understand why being in a car caught in the middle of a protest would be super annoying, but considering past actions its gross people in office would try use this to have a legal excuse and use this as a means to "shut people up".

    If people are protesting whatever and are doing so in a peaceful manner that isn't obstructing traffic, then fine. Proceed.

    If I hear any of my windows break, everyone in front of my car might as well be cosplaying as bowling pins.

    "Protest in a way that doesn't impede my life and that I can easily ignore thx."

    That's a stupid way to protest. Might as well just stay home.

    I agree they shouldn't damage your personal property, but I'm okay with them obstructing your daily life to pay attention. Yeah, I hate it, too, but there's no other way for them to get you to pay attention.

    There are better ways to protest than to stand in the middle of a highway. Protesters have even blocked ambulances trying to get to a call. If they want to be a danger to themselves that's one thing....

    Do you have proof of that or are you talking about the debunked right-wing story used by Info Wars and its ilk to paint the protesters as assholes?

    Even MLK marched on the street, blocking traffic to get more attention to his cause. So stop it.

    We've never actually gone to a real war with a Communist country and no Communist country has come close to destabilizing the entire planet like the Nazis did.

    True enough, but it's killed about 100 million people, many of them their own kind.

    Both evil ideologies in their own respects, so they should be equally deserving of Final Atomic Busters into the sidewalk.

    After college, I realized why Communism doesn't work. So I allow kids to think it's the answer to shit. They will eventually come to the right conclusion. Nazism, however, that needs to be stomped out. At least communism didn't preach hatred of people because they are different from you.

    Besides, most know that capitalist-socialism is the way to live, especially to curtail the horrors of unchecked capitalism. People can make money but if they do, they have to give to to the people. They still make more money and because of cost control they can afford to live lavishly, but they won't create a class of impoverished for it.
