The brave Portland #Ferguson demonstrators were back at it again Saturday evening, as they blocked the busy intersection of SE 39th and Belmont as a way of stickin’ it to the man.
They blocked buses and cars, and got into arguments and physical altercations with several people, including: elderly drivers, disabled bus passengers, a black woman who was trying to pick up her son, and anyone else who dared voice their dissent.
After about 20 minutes of tying up the intersection, the protest moved to nearby Peacock Lane, which is well known for its rows of large Christmas displays. The demonstrators sang parody Christmas carols, which included a brief rendition of “Deck the halls with rows of dead cops.”
While on Peacock Lane, which is very busy this time of year with folks who drive and walk through to see the lights, one driver decided to start plowing through the protesters. The crowd immediately mobbed the silver Jeep. It is unclear if anyone was injured or why the driver didn’t stop for the crowd.
