We are keeping a close eye on a Black Lives Matter protest at 3rd and Massachusetts Avenue near Union Station. Right now, police are letting them block the street and side walk along the 300 block of Massachusetts Avenue & the entrance of the Fraternal Order of Police. The protestors plan to remain their for the next 28 hours, the same amount of time that police let Michael Brown’s body lay in the street in Ferguson.
