Today’s feel-good moment centers on the news that two race agitators in Ferguson, Missouri, have been charged with attacking an SUV driver who broke though a chain of protesters blocking Interstate 70.
Brittany Ferrell, 26, and Alexis Templeton, 21, were arrested Monday after participating in an unlawful protest that shutdown the interstate the day following the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown being shot and killed after he violently attacked Officer Darren Wilson.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on the incident.
One driver who was forced to stop tried to move forward through the line of people, and the protesters tried to stop her SUV, according to court documents.
Templeton punched the driver through her open window, giving the woman a black eye, according to charges. Ferrell kicked the woman’s vehicle, causing nearly $5,000 in damage, the charges say.
So much for the “peaceful protests” with which a supportive media continues to mislead the nation. The incident was captured on film and posted on social media:

Ferrell was charged with felony property damage, trespass and peace disturbance, and Templeton was charged with third-degree assault, trespassing on the interstate and peace disturbance, according to the Post-Dispatch.
The activists were released Wednesday after posting bail.

Based on the reaction on social media to the incident, it seems the professional agitators in Ferguson have worn out their welcome, assuming they were ever received in the first place.
“Throw away the key” sumps up the reaction pretty well:
@stltoday driver did nothing wrong, that’s why. Peaceful protesters unlawfully stopped traffic. They are lucky they weren’t killed.

@TheMorningSpew I don’t blame the driver. Get off the damn road.

@SooperMexican A little bear spray out the window would get them moving away.
