В Торонто утро понедельника началось с ЧП. Активисты движения "Жизни чернокожих имеют значение" заблокировали один из перекрёстков. Так граждане опротестовали убийство полицейскими канадца сомалийского происхождения в прошлом месяце. Демонстранты требуют, чтобы ответственные за убийство были отправлены под суд. Акция продлилась около часа, после чего демонстранты мирно покинули перекрёсток.
На родине движения -протесты проходят в куда более жёсткой форме. В американском городе Милуоки, штат Висконсин введен комендантский час.
Black Lives Matter-Toronto apparently answer to nobody
TORONTO - Why does everybody else follow the rules?
Why bother in the future?
Black Lives Matter protesters in Toronto don’t abide by the rules, and since there are never any ramifications nor repercussions, why should anybody else?
BLM can set up a semipermanent protest centre in front of Toronto Police headquarters and nothing happens — except they get a meeting with the chief. Pull an aggressive stunt to get the attention of the mayor outside his office, and they are rewarded with a chance to sit down with him.
They do the same near the premier’s house and, you guess it, they get in to chat with her, too.
No wonder BLM thinks they can do whatever they want and disrupt whatever they want.
Despite the story being it was the first time a prime minister walked in Toronto’s Pride Parade, it quickly shifted to a few Black Lives Matter protesters who shut down the parade with a stunt that was designed to strong arm the committee to not let the police participate anymore.
Monday’s stunt might have been their most brazen yet. Not only did a couple dozen protesters close down the Yonge and Dundas intersection, but they added insult to injury by actually holding a news conference in the middle of it.
Everybody else, be damned. BLM run the city. They answer to nobody.
As usual, Toronto Police hasn’t announced that anyone will be charged or get a ticket for the latest act of thumbing their nose at everybody.
What do Black Lives Matter have planned next? Why would they stop? They are in charge around here.
