4th Night of Protests: Hundreds Briefly Block Charlotte Interstate

by FOXNews.com  |  published on September 24, 2016

A crowd of demonstrators briefly shut down Charlotte’s Interstate 277 Friday evening as a fourth night of protests over the shooting of a black man by police unfolded.

An estimated 300 protesters took to the streets, leaving the freeway within a short time. Earlier Friday, they gathered at a park and then marched through Charlotte’s business district.

One marcher carried a sign that said “Just Stop The Killing,” while another had a banner that said “Just Release the Tapes.” Protesters have sought the release of police footage of the shooting earlier this week of Keith Lamont Scott by a police officer.

National Guard members posted in front of many downtown buildings watched the demonstrators marching.

Three previous nights of protests included two that were chaotic, with more than a dozen officers wounded and one other person killed. But Thursday, people marched through downtown in a largely peaceful protest.

    Good thing I’m not a truck driver and was on that 277 interstate, I’d never checked up, grab another gear and pedal to the metal!!

  • The Redhawk

    MAY BE IT IS TIME TO BLOCKADE THESE ANARCHISTS THUGS IN LEAVENWORTH AND GITMO!!

    LET the National Guard and the POICE GIT IT DONE and STOP these IDIOTS from PILLAGING AND CAUSING UNNECESSARY HAVOC WITH NO IDEA OF WHAT IS GOING ON!!

  • Walter Flatt

    IT IS PAST TIME THAT THE PEOPLE LEARN TO DO WHAT THE POLICE TELL THEM TO DO, IF THEY DO NOT, THEY TAKE THEIR LIFE IN THEIR OWN HANDS. ALL LOOTERS AND FIRE SETTERS SHOULD BE ARRESTED ON THE SPOT AND GIVEN A FIVE YEAR SENTENCE AT HARD LABOR IN SHERIFF JOES TENT PRISON, FIRST OFFENSE, IF NOT A MUSLIM, IF A MUSLIM, DEPORT OR HER TO AFRICA.

    • MyRoseHasTHORNS

      Agree with everything EXCEPT 5 years isn’t long enough.
      5 year minimum maybe
      but I’d prefer 10-12 years with no parole before 7 FULL years are served

  • Walter Flatt

    ARM THE POLICE WITH 12 GA SHOT GUNS, GIVE THE PEOPLE 30 MINUTES TO CLEAR STREETS OR HIGHWAY AND IF THEY DO NOW SWEEP IT WITH BUCK SHOT. ARREST ALL WITH FACES COVERED THEY ARE MUSLIMS TRYING TO TEAR THIS COUNTRY UP. GET ROUGH.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET, 51/53

    WE NEED TO HAVE A 6 YEAR TERM LIMIT FOR ALL POLITICIANS,(TRUMP MAY NEED 2 TERMS TO GET THIS MESS STRAIGHT). FROM THE LOCAL LEVEL UP, AND NOT ALLOW THEM TO HOLD ANOTHER OFFICE. IF WE PUT IN A 6 YR TERM LIMIT, MAYBE WE COULD GET SOME WORK OUT OF THE ONES WE ELECT, INSTEAD OF TRYING TO BE RE-ELECTED.

    WE NEED TO ABOLISH THE SUPREME COURT AND ELECT A JUDGE FROM EACH STATE WITH A TERM LIMIT OF 6 YEARS. NO MORE LIFERS.

    WE NEED TO OPEN AND CLOSE ALL POLLING STATIONS AT THE SAME TIME. WHY SHOULD I MAKE A EFFORT TO VOTE IF THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA HAS REPORTED A WINNER BEFORE THE BOOTHS CLOSE IN FLORIDA.

    WE NEED TO GET RID OF ALL DELIGATES AND THE ELECTROCIAL COLLEGE AND TAKE THE MAJORITY FROM EACH STATE AND USE THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS PAID TO THE NEWS MEDIA TO CREATE JOBS.

    BELOW IS A GOOD REASON WHY I BELIEVE THAT A TAKEOVER TRY IS POSSIBLE. HOW CAN THE BIASED NEWS SAY OBAMA IS NOT A MUSLIM.

    President Obama: This is why you didn’t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists:
    * It was you . . . who spoke these words at an Islamic dinner -“I am one of you.”
    * It was you . . . who on ABC News referenced -“My Muslim faith.”
    * It was you who . . . gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.
    * It was you who . . . wrote that in the event of a conflict- “I will stand with the Muslims.”
    * It was you who . . . assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”
    * It was you who . . . bowed in submission before the Saudi King.

    * It was you who . . . mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Qur’an.
    * It was you who . . . raveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States of America.
    * It was you who . . . instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.
    * It was you who . . . refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.
    * It was you who . . . ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.
    * It was you who . . . appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.
    * It was you who . . . appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.
    * It was you who . . . said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.
    * It was you who . . . as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.

    * It was you who . . . curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.
    * It was you who . . . refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.
    * It is you who . . . has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.
    * It was you . . . who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.
    * It was you who . . . funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.
    * It was you who . . . ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.

    * It was you who . . . funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country.
    * It is you who . . . follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.
    * It is you who . . . departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.
    * It was you who . . . was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.
    * It was you who . . . appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    * ARE YOU, KERRY, HILLIARY & THE BIASED NEWS MEDIATO TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY?

    Does anyone else find this whole thing less than a coincidence that this is happening in the state of North Carolina? The state (and governor) that won’t fall in line with Obama’s transgender plans now has this nasty ongoing BLM riot.
