BLM Thugs Detain Pregnant Woman on Her Way to Hospital

One reason we need the police is so that pregnant women can get to the hospital without being unlawfully detained by leftist hooligans, as happened July 21 in San Luis Obispo.

Via Cal Coast Times:

After congregating at Mitchell Park, approximately 300 protesters walked onto Highway 101 from both Osos Street and California Boulevard, blocking all lanes in both directions for nearly an hour. While on the highway, protesters ran after vehicles attempting to drive off the freeway, blocked vehicles, and yelled at some of the drivers, according to videos of the protest.

The “protest” prevented critical care nurses from getting to work at Marian Regional Medical Center in Santa Maria during a shift change.

A man in a white truck attempted to get around the protesters by driving on the shoulder of the highway, but his path was blocked. A woman in the passenger seat told protesters that a pregnant woman in the back seat was “going to give birth,” and told them to let the truck through.

Tianna Isis Arata, the organizer of the protest who moved from Portland to San Luis Obispo several years ago, and another protester discussed whether the woman’s water had broken and if she was really in labor…

We now have to plead with these terrorists to be allowed to make use of the roads we pay for.

“It’s not worth it, she’s ignorant,” Arata said before marching away chanting, “Black lives matter.”

After blockading Highway 101 got old, the rioters marched back into town.

Arata then directed others to stop vehicles, and, wielding an American flag on a pole, she chased several cars. A drone video shows Arata hitting one of the cars with the flag pole.

One moonbat applied a skateboard to the back window of a car, shattering it onto a 4-year-old passenger.

Following the protest, San Luis Obispo police officers arrested Arata, 20, on charges of participation in a riot, unlawful assembly, conspiracy, unlawful imprisonment and resisting arrest.


She was released shortly afterwards on her own recognizance.

An officer was kicked in the crotch by 22-year-old Elias Bautista during Arata’s arrest.

SLO Mayor Heidi Harmon, who has repeatedly asked the public to support Arata and Black Lives Matter, joined in the protest, but left to attend a city council meeting before the group entered the highway.

SLO Democratic Socialists of America, a “group of socialists, communists, and anarchists looking to upend capital and build working class power,” raised funds to pay Bautista’s $50,000 bail, according to their Facebook page. The local organization has ties with Harmon, including having her speak at meetings and promoting her reelection.

Harmon calls for taxpayer money to be spent imposing social and racial equality. It would not be surprising if some of the public cash she spreads around finds its way into the pockets of left-wing insurgents.

This typifies the close alliance between liberal local authorities and BLM rioters, explaining why the riots hardly ever occur where Democrats are not in charge.
