    Protesting Police Brutality... yeah right oh. Stopping students from attending classes they won even be able to pay off for quite some years is not protesting police brutality. I'd like to see a minimum of 2-3 years of imprisonment for anyone who's protests prevents other citizens from going about their business to earn or learn or preventing access to food outlets, pharmacies and hospitals.

    If even the Westboro Baptist Church said make a donation to us and well make these sort of protests go away, id get a loan from the bank. Im not a violent person, but Id not be walking around a free man right now if i was there and being prevented from attending class by these over sensitive, over-entitled twats.

    I find hilarious that none of these protests ever take place outside a police station.
    Should be shot, the lot of em.

    I am for protesting police brutality, but not at the cost of others such as this.

    They did this couple weeks back in NYC, blocking roads so people cannot get to work, pick up kids, doctors appointments, etc etc. This is doing nothing but inciting more problems. The whole point of protests for a cause such as police brutality, is to not replace one issue with another. At that point, they are more so forcing their views upon other people which is something I cannot understand.

    I have seen a video of Protesters who blocked entire roadway which prevented people from going to work and backed up traffic for a ways. Plus I feel that the protesters should get a similar treatment as Westboro being allowed to protest but not next to the entrance but a good 100 feet away from the entrance and do not prevent anyone from going anywhere. In this case if I were one of these students I would have called the cops and say these protestors are blocking my path to go where I need to go which is detaining someone without cause is a crime.

    Campus police saw the whole thing and even agreed that what they were doing was not in their rights, and were breaking the law but did not want to cause any issues.

    If the police are so bad at their jobs, why dont they go protest outside the police station and stop them from getting to work.

    Nah, havent got the bulls for that.

    I obviously didnt mean it, but on the other hand.

    If these students that were so smart and managed to get into college, and this is their idea of a contribution or a solution to society and its problems, then why not. They're of no use if they think that the best way to fix problems is to prevent people from accessing education.

    Todays protesters are not interested or simply dont know how to provide solutions, they just want to be seen acting like they contributing as it gets internet points.

    Our social media poisoned society is acting like the world owes them something. It doesnt. People need to learn to either provide a solution, or forever hold their peace.

    Problem with protesters is always the same thing, they claim to be non violent or hostile but end up inciting riots, panics, and problems. Few years back the protests on Wall Street where people were arrested because protesters were unruly, blocked sidewalks, streets, pushed bystanders, and because of this police reacted and threw tear gas, nets, and arrested people. My wife and mother in law were two that were just in the area to get back to their hotel which was very near where the protesting happened, and were detained because of it. Nothing came from it because they had nothing to do with the protesting(as nothing on record for either of them), but they will forever have that traumatic experience.

    And they think that preventing other students from getting the education they paid for is a solution to police brutality? While also assaulting anyone who tries to force their way through.

    Yeah, im questioning their intelligence.

    Like I said, if the police are so bad at their jobs, go protest outside a police station and prevent them from getting to work. Or take one step further, drop out of college and go join the police force.

    They should be imprisoned if they are breaking the law.

    Yes, they have a right to speak freely. No, they dont have the right to be listened to, and that includes interfering with others freedom to go about their lawful business.

    If they are breaking the law then they sure as hell should be imprisoned.

    People seem to forget the boundaries of their rights such as freedom of speech. Yes, you have the right to say what you want to say but this does not mean it has to be heard by others.

    Freedom of Assembly, you are allowed to maintain a protest but you are not allowed to incite riots, cause panic, use violence, or use force/ which is what they are doing.

    In other cases, protesting can lead to other illegal actions such as violent riots, soliciting, property damage, looting as such was the case in Ferguson Missouri.

    If I would have been there I would totally have gone bull charge in them without giving a ****. The heavier, the better. This aggresive and stupid "protest" is nothing more than neo-communist bull**** at it's core, and it's really worrying that so many buy it.

    They sound like a bunch of left wing retards, we have them over here calling Nigel Farage racist and then calling a mixed race UKIP MP an n-word

    Leftists are scum, they dislike freedom of speech/expression, these are the typcial bellends you see protesting outside a prison when someone is getting capital punishment.

    I like how they're all protesting against racism against black people and how hard they have it, and then it loops right to a group of black guys trying to get through.

    I could be wrong...but I think those black kids were in on the protest and were just giving a nice "photo op"..just pretending to be unable to get through. If it were me and I'm literally paying thousands of dollars a day to get an education and they block my path...I'm swinging on them.
