“We Warned Them”: Dallas Police Chief Had Over 600 Protesters Rounded Up After They Blocked Highway

By

Police Chiefs all across this great country of ours have warned protesters against blocking busy highways but, Chief Hall is actually putting her officers where her mouth is.

When protesters blocked Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, Chief Hall sent in an overwhelming force and they used zip ties while subduing 647 protesters.

Hall said:

“There are many who question and are not happy with the decisions that I made on yesterday. Let me be clear, I am not here to make people happy. My job and our job in law enforcement is to keep this city safe. We have pledged that. We will do that. And that is our goal.”

“Although peaceful, the protesters broke the law. On last night, they assembled and then they began to walk, and we supported that walk. When they began to enter the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge they were given a warning because it is against the law.”

“The penal code 42.03, obstruction of a highway or passageway, says they are not allowed to walk in the middle of the roadway or freeway or overpass.”
