Would someone explain to me how blocking traffic saves human lives?I read this as well and failed to understand Terry's point...
We're not talking about a protest sit-in at a lunch counter where blacks are being refused service; we're not even talking about a rescue sit-in at the doors of an abortion clinic, which sort of non-violent direct action, for as long as it continues, keeps actual babies away from the suction machines. Those kinds of sit-ins I can make a case for; indeed, I have made a case for them.
What Randall Terry is doing here, however, is quite different: he's blocking legal access to a public thoroughfare. I think he should stop.
