American Spring Night 2: Coast-To-Coast Protests, "We Have Every Right To Destroy A System That Seeks To Destroy Us"

With countrywide protests having occured across the nation all day, and more planned into the dark of the night, many cities are gearing up for another evening of fear and emotion. For now, the main trouble spots appear to be NYC (Lincoln Tunnel blocked, pepper spray used, multiple protests arounds Union and Times Square), Minneapolis (car ploughs down protesters, violence escalating), Cincinnati (main highway shut down) and Ferguson (2,200 National Guard deployed, multiple protests, multiple arrests). St. Louis just postponed the Thanksgiving Day parade, Los Angeles marches blocked Figueroa, Chicago protest blocked Michigan Avenue, and Oakland (I-580 and I-980 blocked)

President Obama's earlier comments translated appeared to sound like, 'I condemn the violence but totally understand it' and Al Sharpton's earlier analogies to a fight did not help. It appears the American Spring is spreading and while color may have been the catalyst, it appears youth is the dividing point.

 

This seemed to sum things up...

Today and tonight...
