Police Arrest 74 During Black Lives Matter Protest in NY

A Black Lives Matter protest led to mass arrests Friday night in Rochester, New York, USA Today reports. Police Chief Michael Ciminelli says 74 people were arrested when protesters blocked traffic around 10pm. According to NBC News, police thought the protest was going to end earlier in the evening; officers put on riot gear when it didn’t. Ciminelli says there were more than 100 officers and 400 or so protesters on the scene. He says officers didn’t “blindly make arrests.” But protesters say arrests shouldn’t have been made at all. “There wasn’t anything wrong,” one protester tells USA Today. “We were peacefully protesting.” Organizer Ashley Gantt says protestors sat down when police moved in to avoid being seen as aggressive. “I’m not disappointed because I wouldn’t expect anything less from the police,” she says.

    Cops should just announce they’re no longer arresting black people for anything. All 911 calls will include ‘is there anyone black committing a crime?’ and if the caller says yes then 911 won’t respond. Sorry. New rule.

    I give it about a month before some pissed off white people start doing the rolling ‘Beltway Sniper’ thingee targeting blacks, especially the BLM people.

      It is not going to happen; that is what the nwo commies want and Constitutional Americans know it. If a bullet flies, know it is a commie leftist soros paid false flag.

  • Nothing this racist movement does is peaceful.

    If these malcontents are really that unhappy, white people can stop paying into welfare.

    The USA should do a sting offering prize money to all BLM and Black Panther Party members and instead ship them all off to Liberia where they can all lives as they choose far away from us!

      They are not about to leave for any place in Africa anymore than any of our armchair commies will move to Cuba, N. Korea or any communist hell hole. They both just want to destroy their own country.
