Hundreds of protesters angry with the acquittal of a neighborhood watch volunteer for a fatal shooting in Florida marched through downtown Oakland Monday evening, temporarily shutting down I-880 in the process.
The protest was the third in three days in Oakland following the announcement Saturday that George Zimmerman was found not guilty of the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin after a confrontation where he followed Martin believing he was suspicious.
The protest briefly blocked traffic on Interstate Highway 880 and about five people have been arrested, police said. Police could not immediately disclose where and why they were arrested.

Shoot a couple two or three and the freeway would immediately open up.

A surprising number of news clips show white people, e.g. grey ponytail libs and occupy types egging on the crowds of blacks.

Don’t even need to do that. All you need are cops who don’t put up with that nonsense. The Oaktown & SF cops stand around and watch them riot. Meanwhile, San Jose cops sit around and wish they’d come down and liven up their evening, but the punks aren’t that stupid.
“...George Zimmerman was found not guilty of the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin...”
Then there was no murder, was there? Martin was dead as a result of a justifiable homicide, not murder. Right?

I guess the white liberals are choosing to side with the blacks against the Hispanics.

FWIW, just want to add that although there are a number of candidate cities Oakland is my personal choice as the @$$h*le of America.
