Ieshia Evans, 28, of New York, left her child at home to travel to another state and block traffic in protest of police shooting child rapist and career criminal Alton Sterling.
The leftist news media has successfully helped pictures of her arrest to go viral. The photos are being celebrated on the front page of CNN, The Washington Post and many other news sites.
Here's a sampling of the fawning coverage from The Washington Post:
She was the calm at the center of the storm, a storm spreading across the country.Who knew blocking traffic in support of a child rapist could be so glamorous?
Innocent people experiencing medical emergencies have died in the past as a result of protesters blocking traffic, yet no media outlet seems to be highlighting this obvious fact.
The Reuters journalist who took the photograph said he thinks he heard Evans say she wanted to be arrested -- this despite her having a 5-year-old child at home.
From Reuters photographer Jonathan Bachman:
A group of demonstrators had formed a blockade—blocked Airline Highway, which runs in front of Baton Rouge Police headquarters. So law enforcement came out, consisting of several departments within Louisiana … they had come out in riot gear to clear the protestors off to the side of the road. In that attempt, they arrested three to four people as some of the demonstrators confronted the line that the police had created, but for the most part they were able to move everyone off to the side of the road.Evans was released from prison after 24 hours.
Twitter user @Rahaeli's comparison of her arrest with the iconic tank man was featured and embedded in the article from The Washington Post:
While the comparison is laughable on its face, it's actually quite accurate as both events are based on media hoaxes ginned up by our hostile ruling elite to try and foment entirely phony revolutions.
