A group that has camped outside the Durham, NC Police Department for more than a week has now blocked the street outside the building.

On Thursday, a protester told WRAL News the group used wooden pallets to block the headquarters building at 602 E. Main St. in downtown Durham around 3 a.m.

The Durham Police Department said they will monitor traffic in the area for the protesters' safety, and state transportation workers were at the scene expanding the road closures to manage traffic.

Let alone clearing the road for law-abiding, taxpaying motorists to use it.

This is insanity cubed.

Wut? Maybe we really do need to abolish the police, and just start taking care of s**t ourselves.

I'm not kidding.

If they were blocking a World Series game or the Oscars they would be gone in a hurry.

The Democrats are enjoying Antifa and BLM wreaking havoc on the country, but they have absolutely no control over them. From a political standpoint the Democrats have to thread the political needle to pacify these kooks while appearing to be centrist to the voters.

Huh? If they're playing in the road they are liable to be run over. That should be the only safety message. I guess they're doing such a good job protecting law-abiding citizens' safety, they can now concentrate on the rioters.

Blocking roads <> Protester

Trump SHOULD win NC without breaking a sweat

Lawless protesters are just leaving themselves open for lawless counter-protesters.

This is what happens when you don’t fight back in the early stages!! It has gotten out of control now....how do you stop it? I don’t think you can by waiting it out! The terrorists cells here in America have seen an opening and they are exploit with the help of outside globalists and part of the 150 BILLION free money Ovomit gave them to use to destroy us and our country!!! Some pieces are falling into place...could Ovomit be the antichrist? The bastard is EVIL and untouchable at this stage of the game! I’m betting he is!!!

In our town they blocked roads , said they were going to burn the city down to the ground and replace it with all black businesses etc and the police chief gave them bottles of water as it was a hot day . Meanwhile counter protestors were told to move on or get arrested.

The police are useless.
