Eyewitness video: ‘Impeach Obama’ activists arrested for peaceful assembly



Protesters in St. Charles, Mo., were arrested for peacefully demonstrating and calling for the impeachment of President Barack Obama Saturday.

This particular demonstration was a part of the nationwide “Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment” movement initiated by James Neighbors for the months of July and August.

In this particular incident, the demonstrators were told to leave the area by state troopers because they created a safety hazard for motorists, according to Tea Party News Network.

A suggestion by the group to move the demonstration further down the road was met by “No, we’re just going to have you guys exit the overpass.”

“What gives you the authority to order me around on a public sidewalk?” the cameraman asked.

“Do you recognize that I’m a peace officer? I asked you and told you that you need to leave,” the officer replied.

The situation eventually escalated to the point where the demonstrator was placed into a chokehold and arrested.

The cameraman can be heard asking, “Is that necessary? He’s not resisting!” He was arrested along with the first demonstrator.
