This is not how people should be protesting. This is disturbing the peace. This is disrupting the way of life for many people stay on the sidewalk disrespectful. This is a perfect example of why Black lives matter protesters should have been arrested. Every one of them that was blocking the bridge should have been put in jail.
The Memphis Black Lives Matter rally shut down the I-40 bridge with hundreds of protesters refusing to leave. Traffic could not go across, but paramedic Bobby Harrell with Crittenden EMS was determined to get to a child who was stuck on the bridge with his family.
Watch the video below!
According to Fox affiliate:
“We received a call there was a child needing medical attention stuck in traffic up on the bridge and due to the protest going on the bridge the family was not able to get through traffic to get him to Le Bonheur,” Harrell said.
A photo shows parents handing the child off to paramedics on the bridge.
“The sheriff’s department had to escort us up the wrong way of the interstate to the child,” he said.
Harrell said after he had the very sick child in the ambulance, the driver had to go 25 minutes out of the way.
“We had to turn around and come back to West Memphis and cross over at MLK to get over to 55.”
First, blocking roadways like that is dangerous and when trying to get your sick child to the hospital in time, you should not have to take the longest route possible. Plus, what did they accomplish blocking the road? The only thing that does is make hate BLM even more. As some have mentioned, look at the videos where people are plowing through the blockades. In fact, guess who gets charged with a crime when that has happened? It’s been the protesters!!! So clearly, police are going to allow it and as more people realize it, the BLM will start losing more members.
