Protests continue across the nation in the wake of the decision not to indict Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson for the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. This week, after demonstrators blocked Interstate 5 in San Diego, many people voiced their anger at the protesters for the disruption.
On Wednesday, dozens of protesters stood in the middle of the highway making it impossible for cars to drive. Thousands of angry drivers were ultimately left stranded on the highway and were unable to get to work, and while many sat in their cars and waited, others decided to confront the protesters about the disruption.
Tyree Landrum, an angry commuter, had decided that enough was enough when he got out of his vehicle to explain to the protesters why he was so upset. Landrum wound up getting into a physical altercation with one protester while trying to take away his bullhorn.
“I got to go to Ross right now, homie,” Landrum said to an ABC 10 News photographer. “If I don't get there, I'm going to get fired. I've got six f**king kids to feed, homie…motherf**kers get shot every f**king day. Deal with it the right way, not like this.”
According to InfoWars, people online started donating money to Landrum after seeing his clip go viral.
Other drivers voiced their frustrations as well, with one woman pointing out that the protesters could have been preventing people from getting to jobs that could save others’ lives.
“We have doctors and nurses that have to save lives here,” said one woman in scrubs to ABC 10.
Eventually, police arrived at the scene and were able to dissemble the group, allowing the drivers to get to where they needed to be.
