Breitbart went on to say:
“They were blocking the roads until the police force stepped in,” McClaran said. “People were putting their cars right up against them.”
One video posted to social media shows a man in scrubs and a mask standing in front of a grey pick-up truck with a woman holding a sign that read “Land of the Free.”
