    Four Ohio teens face murder charges after allegedly throwing a sandbag from a highway overpass. The bag smashed through the windshield of a car that Marquise Byrd, 22, was riding in last week on Interstate 75 in Toledo. Byrd died from severe head injuries on Friday. Three of the boys charged are 14 years old, and the other is 13. They had already been charged with felonious assault, reports CBS News correspondent Jericka Duncan. Around 10 p.m. last Tuesday, a woman was driving with her friend, Byrd, under an overpass when something came crashing through the passenger-side windshield. She pulled...

    CINCINNATI, OHIO - Hours after an Ohio interstate overpass undergoing demolition collapsed, killing one person and injuring another, commuter traffic was slow around the Cincinnati region early Tuesday, particularly on other main arteries into the city. Cincinnati Police Chief Jeff Blackwell late Monday urged commuters to plan ahead and said drivers should stay away from the collapsed overpass north of downtown Cincinnati and leave with plenty of time to get to work. Authorities say a construction worker was killed and a tractor-trailer driver injured when the Interstate 75 overpass collapsed about 10:30 p.m. Monday. Blackwell called it a workplace accident,...

    The town of Campbell, Wis., is facing a federal lawsuit challenging ordinance 9.12, which bans the display of banners or flags on or near the town’s pedestrian overpass. Demonstrators began using the overpass in August 2013 to call for President Obama’s impeachment and to display patriotism. After a gathering in October angered local citizens and garnered media attention, the Town of Campbell passed the ordinance, which prohibits the display of signs, flags or banners within 100 feet of the overpass. On Oct. 24, Gregory Luce and a few supporters, wearing T-shirts that collectively spelled out “IMPEACH OBAMA,” were ordered by...

    WHAT ARE YOU PROTESTING FOR? I recently became active in the Overpass Protests that are springing up all over our country. I have been amazed at the outpouring of support from passersby but also dismayed by the fact that even after every...thing that’s happened, most people still seem disengaged. Today, at our Overpass Rally, I was rendered nearly speechless, when a car with several women stopped to ask questions. The car stopped on top of the overpass, blocking traffic and a very elegant black woman opened her door and turned in her seat. I thought she was getting out of...

    We reported several days ago that two women who were part of a protest against President Barack Obama found themselves looking down the barrel of a gun during their protest. Apparently someone didn’t like the message they were sending. Now the suspect in that case has been arrested, and it’s an unlikely culprit. According to WSBTV, Police have arrested an 84-year-old man accused of pointing a gun at anti-President Barack Obama protestors. Roy Smith said he kept the Colt .32 handgun in his car for carjackers. Gwinnett police said he faces three counts of misdemeanor simple assault and pointing a...
  • Freepers – a call for help! Local government to silence my freedom of speech!

    The right to free speech is under attack by our local government that wishes to help shut down the Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment movement. The Town of Campbell, La Crosse County, Wisconsin is trying to pass an ordinance to ban free speech in the name of “safety”. The enemies of our Constitution are claiming it is a traffic safety issue when we are protesting on a pedestrian bridge over the I-90 interstate. They claim the road construction a couple of miles away presents a hazard to safety. When asked if they would remove the ordinance when the construction was finished...

    Today there was an "Impeach Obama" demonstration on the overpass in New Caney, TX. Granted, there isn't much to New Caney.. we've only got the one overpass. All told there were maybe a dozen folks in attendance. Here's pictures: Also nice to see were some young folks there. We got a lot of support from the traffic which was gratifying. I only learned of this event this morning, and I'm told not a lot of planning went into it. Next Saturday the effort will continue a couple of miles south in the thriving metropolis of Porter which has no overpass...

    ST. CHARLES • The arrest Saturday afternoon of two anti-Barack Obama protesters on an Interstate 70 overpass is stirring controversy - fueled by a video of the incident circulating on the internet. The two — Marc S. Messmer, 41, of St. Charles, and Jimmy D. "Duane" Weed, 57, of Bridgeton — say that their constitutional rights were violated. "Citizens have a right to peaceably assemble," said Messmer, who was part of a series of overpass demonstrations around the country seeking the president's impeachment. "We were simply doing that. There were no laws broken." Sgt. Al Nothum, a spokesman for the...

    A few of you sent me this video, published to Youtube today, of the weekend overpass protests, this one in St. Charles, Missouri. I’m still trying to figure out what laws these protesters broke. While I wasn’t there, it seems to me the protesters were standing on public ground, not in traffic, therefor not impeding traffic. Having organized and attended many protests myself — and having worked with local law enforcement to make sure regulations (even mindlessly unnecessary ones) are met, so long as a protester isn’t standing in traffic, there isn’t an issue. Am I missing something here? Don’t...

    “The Patriot Wave” will sweep the country demanding that Congress impeaches President Barack Obama, James Neighbors, National Coordinator and Founder of a movement called Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment, announced today. He said there will be nationwide overpass protests this summer in July and August. The movement is inspired by a similar protest earlier this month in California. Protestors in Carlsbad, California made news a couple weeks ago holding a protest on a nearby highway overpass on Interstate 5 on June 8. The protesters held up a variety of “Impeach Obama” signs and the demonstration slowed down southbound traffic on the...
