Protests Against The Police Spread Across The U.S.

ABC News: More Than 200 Protesters Arrested in Baton Rouge and St. Paul Overnight

While thousands of demonstrators flooded the streets of major U.S. cities again Saturday night -- protesting the recent killings by police of black men Philando Castile in suburban St. Paul, Minnesota, and Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana -- a demonstration in St. Paul took a particularly violent turn, with participants hurling Molotov cocktails, fireworks, rocks, glass bottles, concrete slabs, and bricks at riot gear-wearing police officers.

And between demonstrations in Baton Rouge and St. Paul alone, there were more than 200 arrests.

The St. Paul protesters, who kicked off the night at 8 p.m. from the governor's mansion, forced the closure of Interstate 94. Some threw objects and dropped liquids from overpasses on officers below. Others directed laser pointers at officers.

Obama Justice Department Laughed Off Armed New Black Panther Threat

Obama owns this.

He created a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Now he will try to not let this crisis go to waste. (He learned a few things from his chief of staff Rahm "Dead FISH" Emmanuel).

On another note it is pretty lame and chintzy to use a Dead fish instead of a horses head. But what the hey, Rahm is a cheap ass Democrat.

things will escalate very quickly...people are very emotional right now and aren't thinking before acting.

Obama has been stoking this for 7 years.

According to the (dis)honorable Eric Holder blacks cannot be racist.

Given that those people were and are in charge, riots are all but inevitable

Obama is thinking alright. While he may be emotional; he is thinking. His thoughts bode ill for America.

I know thing's seem to be going crazy there,

But it's a good idea to step away from the crazy, not embrace it.

A whole pile of 'em are about to vote Trump, or Hillary.

The crazy is well and truly embraced.

Bear-hugged in fact.
