How #BlackLivesMatter Tried to Shut Down Black Friday in Chicago


Yesterday morning, as part of my continuing coverage of the left’s temper tantrum over the shooting of Laquan McDonald by a Chicago police officer, Ann Sterzinger and I went downtown to check out #BlackLivesMatter’s Black Friday march. Protesters assembled at the corner of Michigan and Wacker in the Loop, then proceeded to march north into the Magnificent Mile—Chicago’s premier shopping district—and actively block shoppers from entering or exiting the stores.

After we were done filming the march, Ann and I recorded a wrap-up video in which we gave our thoughts on what we saw:
