About 100 people rallied in front of Miami-Dade’s criminal courthouse Tuesday night in a boisterous but peaceful Ferguson rally marred only by the arrest of two young men for trespassing…
…Near the main entrance on the south side of the building, two young men dressed in black charged onto the steps at officers, who swiftly took them down and handcuffed them. The two men — Phillip Brian Agnew, 29, of Hialeah and Shaw Jeremy Roberts, 25, of Pompano Beach —were charged with failure to obey a lawful order.
I had been reading about Ferguson protest all day and how in different cities the protesters were blocking highways and roads to spread” their message. But Miami is different and unless you moved yesterday, you know that there is a good chance to end up part of the asphalt if you step on a highway. Sometimes, it seems that there is a pedestrian hit-and-run every week in South Florida.
So, the protesters did all right. You need to be alive to exercise your rights.
