That's because a bunch of rabble-rousers protesting the grand jury decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson over the death of Michael Brown were allowed to block this major artery connecting Washington DC and Alexandria, VA. (photos via Twitter)
These videos (Video 1, Video 2, Video 3) were uploaded onto Instagram, as was this embedded one on YouTube.

Taking a look at the photos from yesterday, there are various signs that one should pay attention to, in order to tell the groups behind them, and that the media no doubt will ignore the radical backgrounds of.
ANSWER Coalition (whom this blog has blogged about for years) evolved after 9/11 in response to the War on Terror. From David Horowitz' Discover the Network website.
International ANSWER (an acronym for "Act Now to Stop War and End Racism") is run by Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center, which is staffed by members of the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party (WWP). ANSWER views the United States as a racist, imperialist, sexist, homophobic nation and the world’s chief violator of human rights -- guilty of unspeakable atrocities, past and present, foreign and domestic.
PSLWeb (signs in the photo near the FedEX truck) stands for Party for Socialism and Liberation, per Wikipedia.
National Black United Front was listed on this FreeRepublic link as a communist organization. Per Wikipedia, the group was called "Christian, Left-leaning, somewhat Black nationalist and to work in the tradition of the Million Man March and Malcolm X."
That is why this manufactured outrage over the Ferguson grand jury has echoed nationwide. Since the beginning, what happened in Ferguson has been taken and manipulated by these and various other Communist front groups who use the theme of "racism" to agitate for the overthrow of capitalism.
