She was blocking traffic on a busy street in front of the Baton Rouge Police Department Headquarters, which is another level of stupidity and another level of negligence and an impediment in an emergency.

The fallout from these marches, protests, anti-protestors, and any other form of large gathering is what happens when an activist Supreme Court creates a constitutionally unsupported doctrine regarding the First Amendment's "the right of the people peaceably to assemble..." clause.
Right wing logic......the only thing busy about that street are the pigs standing in riot formation. BTW, why aren't you defending this girls right to Freedom of Speech?

Poor people do not commit crimes at a much higher rate than middle class and wealthy people. The data from the Great Depression and ensuring recession debunk this economics and crime relationship.

There was a slight increase in crime during the Great Depression and it is attributable to prohibition related gangsters,which were not poor,; alcohol related crimes associated with prohibition, which is not dependent on being poor; and the creation of organized crime due to prohibition, which is not dependent on being

Freedom of speech does not grant anyone the right to break the law and freedom of speech is not applicable to a person illegally blocking traffic in front of a police station.

Although all this citizen was armed with was her arms.
She had what the right wing would call a black person's 2nd Anendment right to bear arms.

Your $5 billion figure is too high.

Nothing is more insulting to comparing the Tienanmen Square protestor who expected to die, and probably was dead within week over 1,000s of protestors being shot the day before to a girl breaking the law standing in the street knowing the worst that would happen is she would be arrested.

It is correct in the aggregate with all the drugs that are rejected, which is a cost passed on to the consumer.

Well, thank you for posting that, but you realize (I HOPE) that numbers don't mean a thing unless you consider the percentage of whites v blacks? Right?
'According to the most recent census data, there are nearly 160 million more white people in America than there are black people. White people make up roughly 62 percent of the U.S. population but only about 49 percent of those who are killed by police officers. African Americans, however, account for 24 percent of those fatally shot and killed by the police despite being just 13 percent of the U.S. population.' WaPo July 11, 2016
RWNJs only pick the numbers they like and they don't realize that non righties have the ability to fact check and can tell fact from fiction.
