#BLM Marches In Rochester

ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- More than 70 demonstrators were arrested and two reporters were detained in Rochester during a Black Lives Matter protest.

Starting at 4 p.m. Friday, hundreds of people gathered near Liberty Pole Way for a protest in the wake of the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile -- black men who were shot and killed by police in Louisiana and Minnesota this week.

Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli said police knew about the rally before it happened and worked to communicate with organizers.

A group of about 400 people chanted as they marched through downtown Rochester. The march turned tense when protesters stopped at the Strong Museum and encountered a line of police in riot gear, reported the Democrat & Chronicle.

The tense moment ended peacefully, and protesters resumed their march -- parading back to the Liberty Pole, reported the Democrat & Chronicle.
The protest ended.
No one was hurt.
No one  was arrested.
The cops were leaving.
Then people got stupid.
Maybe it was an air borne virus.
The RPD arrested 74 persons.

Protesting blacks rarely pass up an opportunity to be _ssholes.
