BLM Protesters Block Terminal, Traffic at Minneapolis Airport

December 23, 2015  | 

Protesters blocked access to a terminal and caused significant holiday traffic delays around Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on Wednesday after staging a Black Lives Matter rally that also briefly shut down part of the nation's largest mall, reports the Associated Press.

Several people were arrested at the airport, where officials said access to one of two terminals was blocked and the protest caused backups on nearby roads. Two security checkpoints were closed for about 45 minutes, causing some flights to be delayed, airport spokesman Patrick Hogan said.

Protesters took a light-rail train to the airport from the Mall of America, where hundreds of demonstrators started the rally to draw attention to a recent police shooting of Jamar Clark in Minneapolis.

These people need to start being treated as the TERRORISTS they are.
I am sick and tired of the bleeding heart for the sum of the land and all the criminal activity they represent.
It is time to stand for what it TRUE and what is RIGHT.....not the LIES of BLM.

Sounds like blm. these scumbags have no jobs, and won't look for anything (legal anyways) , and feed off the taxes of other U.S. citizens. Govt. housing, and welfare. Just hoping to be part of a lawsuit to get $$. I hope they know that they need to just move on, and stop bitching about anything that didn't go their way. this is exactly what obama admin. taught these a**holes. It is just so typical.

I agree, we need to start looking at these folks, the "leaders" and/ or the money backers (Soros etc) of BLM should be investigated for facilitating these law breakers and charged under conspiracy and RICO statutes. These folks cross state lines to commit crimes, why isn't DOJ investigating or charging them? Sorry... how foolish of me, I know why DOJ doesn't, its due to their being predominately Black. If this were a White organization (White lives matter/all lives matter ), or the NRA or any conserve active movement for that matter the DOJ and FBI would be all over them with interstate crime investigations. YOU KNOW IT!

Oh boy, you guys are so cute at this age. So protesters are terrorists and should be treated as such. What, send in Seal Team Six to take them out. I'm pretty sure they and just about any sane people have better things to do. The three of you who posted so far are just about the most misinformed, uninformed racist hillbillies on this site. Hope you all have a nice Xmas dinner of possum, greens and possibly incest.

To the good cops Merry Christmas.

They may not be terrorists, but they are engaged in criminal activity and they really do fit the criteria for being a gang. They obviously have funding. They are organized, they participate in illegal activity, and they intimidate others. Last I heard, trespassing, and blocking streets are illegal activities. Not to mention all of the people that are trying to make a living, but can not because the stores they own or work at have to be closed for their safety, because of the BLM movement. From what I have seen and read, it seems to me that the BLM movement is creating a deepening divide between races. They are using fear and intimidation in an attempt to get their way.

"Terrorists" might be playing with semantics but if they are there to cause fear to further a political agenda and are funded the name might fit. Causing damage and disrupting peace or demanding payoffs to stay away make them criminals.

The problem is that they are doing it without consequences to themselves but trying to cash in on potential lawsuits against law enforcement. As they continue they will get bolder and create more damage.

Stay Safe God help us New Years Eve.

percy, Really norman bates (female version), this is somebody who still lives with his dead mother, and talkS shit. Dude please talk about misinformed your hooked up to internet 24/7 and believe anything the left tells you. Which is fine with me, but really go somewhere where you might be accepted like N.A.M.B.L.A. FREAK! Yeah and we're the hillbillies whatever chick.

Hey I'm a "hillbilly" and take great offense to you comment PERCY. I demand an apology! HLM too.

Someone better get a handle on the "Bowel" Movement organization before someone really gets pissed off at them and does something stupid. Protesting is one thing, blocking entrance ways and thoroughfares is something else. They really need to get a job.

Y'all just hate it those uppity blacks challenge you. BLM wouldn't exist if police would quit killing unarmed blacks...among the other unarmed victims.

Concerned Citizen @ 12/26/2015 7:04 PM

Just look around at the proof BLM supporters here on Police Mag and elsewhere are nothing but Agitators. Regardless of the evidence that Michael Brown was a thug that strong armed innocent people. I'm sick of the "Unarmed Teen, Blk Man etc." crap. You can't reason with agitators, and Obamazombies. Because their souls have been taken to the "Dark-side" pun interned. They should worry less about LEOs and more about their eternal souls. Another is, they complain about "Unarmed people" getting killed and want to take away "Gun Rights" that "Arm People". You can't have it both ways can you? Michael Brown had illegal guns, what if he killed innocent people? That wouldn't matter to BLM supporters they'd just want to take way gun rights from law abiding citizens and blame LEOs and 2ed Amendment supporters. Instead of blaming THUGS!
