Blocking roads as a form of protest is stupid and dangerous but that hasn’t stopped the left from doing it.
In Connecticut recently, anti-Trump protesters blocked a major roadway.
By doing so, they blocked an ambulance which was carrying a critically ill patient.

Report: Anti-Trump protesters blocked an ambulance containing a ‘critically-ill patient’
The protest took place Saturday at New Haven’s City Hall but eventually the protesters wandered onto the streets and blocked traffic. Video shows protesters wandering down the street amid cars and chanting “Whose streets? Our streets!” The person who was leading the march at one point tells protesters to block traffic saying, “No one gets by, unless it’s an ambulance.” But according to police the blocked streets did result in an ambulance being prevented from reaching the hospital. Fox 61 reports what happened:
State police said the protesters were in the process of being cleared from the highway, but not before they blocked an ambulance carrying a critically ill patient. Due to this delay, EMTs had to perform an emergency medical procedure in the ambulance, instead of at the hospital…
An attorney representing the protesters said police are responsible for problems at the demonstration, including the delay of the ambulance stuck in traffic.
Attorney Patricia Kane said protesters had asked police to inform them if emergency vehicles needed to get through — and that officers didn’t do so.
Here’s a video of the dumb protest:
