    This is too much. It’s probably the same nut jobs that showed up to protest there a few weeks ago about fur. I hope they catch the people and lock them up. They don’t care about how many people they inconvenience or how many other businesses are affected by the street closure. It’s time to get tough on these criminals and send them away.
