Black Lives Matter Protestors Block Traffic - This Driver Wasn't Having It (Video)

Black Lives Matters (BLM) protesters have taken to blocking roads during their demonstrations in order to get more attention for their cause. One driver wasn't going to have it. Protesters complained to police and were furious when police told them they were in the wrong.

The Portland Racial Justice Congress held a demonstration on city streets, and eventually the crowd poured into the street and started blocking traffic. One person trying to get home slowed his vehicle to a crawl, but didn't stop.

Instead of moving aside, protesters gathered in front of the vehicle, put their hands at it and pushed back at it. They pushed back with all their might, but were no match for the slow-moving vehicle. Some went to the driver's window and demanded he stop, pounding on the car.

"I want to go home," the driver told the protesters, refusing to stop.

Police rushed into the road, but to the protesters' surprise, police didn't stop the vehicle. Officers instead ordered protesters out of the road.

"He's trying to run people over," one protester complained.

Another burst into shrill screams laced with expletives about police letting the driver through.

An officer later bellowed to protesters, "If you are in a roadway you are obstructing a public way and are subject to arrest."

And arrested they were - 18 people in total. Not one was the driver trying to get home.
