Black Lives Matter protesters have taken over highways across the country over the past week, injuring police officers and shutting down residents’ commutes.
BLM protesters already have shown how unnecessarily violent they can be, and this tweet proves it all:
We were just informed that the officer who had a concrete block dropped on his head during I-94 riot has broken vertebrae.

But the latest case of protesters’ disregard for safety and logic affected an ill infant. In Memphis Sunday night, Black Lives Matter marched onto a major bridge and refused to leave, stranding two parents on the way to the hospital with their “very sick” child.
Paramedic Bobby Harrell told local news how the EMS team pulled off a heroic rescue of the baby:
“We received a call there was a child needing medical attention stuck in traffic up on the bridge and due to the protest going on the bridge the family was not able to get through traffic to get him to Le Bonheur [Hospital]. The sheriff’s department had to escort us up the wrong way of the interstate to the child.”
But the craziness doesn’t stop there. Then the ambulance driver “had to go 25 minutes out of the way” because the protesters had shut down the major roads.
Finally, the baby made it to the hospital—and the dad stayed with the car until the protesters moved.
Hot Air’s Larry O’Connor commented:
“As the media continues to repeat over and over again that Black Lives Matter protests are ‘peaceful and non-violent,’ please keep this story in mind.”

If the protesters knew they denied a sick infant medical care, would they be so proud of themselves?
