Protesters play chicken with angry motorists; fed-up bus full took care of business

Some angry Missouri commuters let a group of unruly protesters know that their right to assemble does not come at the expense of other people’s rights.

Protesters shouting “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” at a May Day event Friday night blocked traffic at a busy St. Louis intersection to get their point across, according to Paul Hampel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Unfortunately for them, some commuters had their own point to share: You cannot interrupt the lives of everyone else for your cause.

After trying to reason with the angry demonstrators, passengers on a bus that was stopped at the intersection got off and let the protesters know that if they didn’t move, they would move them against their will.

The commuters then directed traffic past the malcontents.
