Get Over It Already

From the Cleveland Plain Dealer: Officers arrested 17 protesters and used pepper spray to subdue some of them Sunday in a St. Louis neighborhood not far from the suburb where violence erupted this summer after the shooting of a black man by a white policeman.
The arrests were the only incident in an otherwise peaceful weekend of demonstrations in the city to protest the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson in August. The shooting sparked sometimes violent demonstrations in the predominantly black suburb.
Early Sunday morning, about 200 protesters gathered in Shaw, a south St. Louis neighborhood where last week another black 18-year-old was killed by a white police officer, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said. The protesters, some wearing masks, marched toward a QuikTrip convenience store and tried to force open its doors, Dotson said.
Riot police told the crowd to disperse but some 50 protesters linked their arms to create a human chain, he said. About half of them heeded the police warning.
"The people who were left there were people who made a conscious decision they wanted to be arrested," Dotson said.
At least one officer was hit by a rock but was not seriously injured, and officers used pepper spray to get those arrested to comply with police, Dotson said. Police were charging those arrested with unlawful assembly then releasing them Sunday.
Apparently, these people have no life.
They made their point over a month ago and now, no one is listening to them and they don't like it.  Because these idiots are not getting attention, they have decided to ramp things up and become stupid idiots and thugs.
It's time to get over it.  They are defending a thug who tried to kill a police officer and he got shot..  Get over it.
