Most videos I've watched of protesters blocking streets/interstates and highways the police weren't making much of an active effort to clear the roads. If it is illegal to block roads/interstates/highways, then action needs to be taken by the authorities to clear them....immediately. Not sit back and watch. Absent laws being enforced, people will take matters into their own hands. Do I advocate two wrongs making a right mentality? No, but I have no sympathy for someone putting themselves in an idiotic situation and then suffering the consequences that come from those idiotic choices. What's the popular meme I see on facebook a lot? "Life is hard. It's even harder if you're stupid."
