One of the popular activists in the Black Lives Matter movement DeRay Mckesson was arrested during a protest in Baton Rouge Louisiana last night.

Apparently he was warned to not step off the sidewalk he was on, and then he was arrested by two police officers.

Whether he actually stepped off the sidewalk a second time is unclear.

Witnesses say the arrest was violent and that he was *targeted*.

He had his phone on and was streaming the events.

He is charged with *obstructing a highway of commerce*.


Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson arrested by Baton Rouge police


DeRay Mckesson, one of the most prominent activists associated with the police reform protest movement, was arrested in Baton Rouge, where he traveled earlier Saturday to demonstrate in solidarity with residents angered by the recent death of Alton Sterling after an officer-involved shooting that was captured on video.

Mckesson was taken into custody about 11 p.m. in what two fellow activists who witnessed it described as a physically violent arrest.

“The officers won’t give their names,” said Brittany Packnett, a co-founder with Mckesson of the group Campaign Zero, a prominent activist collective. “He was clearly targeted.”

I would relish hearing conspiracy theories about DeRay McKesson for the rest of my tenure on ATS.

The ones that go ... "And he still hasn't turned up yet."

"Ya remember that post ol' xuenchen made back in the mid 2010s. Yeah, man, that's the one. Aww!! We had that one nailed and you better never trust your government again!"

circular arguments with plenty of ad hom

That's against the law?

Must have been some kind of 1st Amendment zone or something.

Probably.

Or failure to "Obey" and follow a "command" regardless if it was lawful order or not.

It was a very convenient photo op, if you look at the photos circulating of the arrest.

So what ?

Using the media for a change instead of the media being used against them.

Kudos for the police.

Why pay tax dollars to keep all them from letting the cops , get on with doing there real job ?

There's more people , black and white who the cops could be serving !

Instead of just standing about getting # from them !

So what does that have to do if a black cop was one of the arresting officers?

That matters how?

So, it's ok he was arrested because he's with BLM or because he was protesting?

This is a tough topic to comment on.

Right away, I'd say the cops were wrong. He has a right to protest.

He doesn't have a right to infringe on others. So arrest him IF he infringes. But not this.

Well considering what other BLM groups are doing, I don't blame them.


This is along I-880 in Oakland. Never mind that this kind of thing can screw people of any color over, or even prevent ambulances from doing their jobs.

What could he do off the sidewalk that he couldn't on it?
