Ferguson protests have spilled into other states, but demonstrators found little support when they blocked the Interstate 5 freeway yesterday during rush hour in La Jolla, Calif.
At around 6:50 a.m., a group of pro-Ferguson protesters formed a human chain across the busy highway and backed up traffic for miles (video below).
An irate commuter, Tyree Landrum, told 10 News, "I got to go to Ross right now, homie. If I don’t get there, I’m going to get fired. I’ve got six f------- kids to feed, homie… Mother f------ get shot every f------- day. Deal with it the right way, not like this.”
Landrum pushed one Ferguson protester off the highway and screamed at him, "Hey, I feel you, we ain’t got no justice either!"
“They don’t really know anything about the real issue,” added another motorist. "They are just complaining about something that could be dealt with differently.”
When San Diego police and California Highway Patrol cars arrived, the commuters cheered and a female motorist yelled, "Arrest them!"
”You’re spending the night in jail!" shouted another stranded motorist, noted Mediate.com. "That’s right, you’re spending the night in jail tonight!”
However, there were no reports of any arrests.
