Minnesota: Black Lives Matter Shuts Down I-94 in St. Paul

Robert Kraychik, Breitbart, September 23, 2020

Black Lives Matter protesters walked onto I-94 in St. Paul, Minnesota, to obstruct highway traffic on Wednesday evening. A local Fox affiliate reported that authorities “blocked off traffic in the area” where the protesting crowd entered the interstate.

“About 400 people were marching to protest the lack of more serious charges against officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death,” according to the Star Tribune, which also reported that police and state patrol “made no move to stop or arrest protesters.”

The protests are part of a broader campaign of demonstrations in large cities across the country following a Kentucky grand jury’s decision to not bring charges against Louisville police officers related to the killing of Breonna Taylor. The protesters chanted and carried signs depicting Taylor. {snip}
