A group of Black Lives Matter rioters, led by BLM leader Tianna Arata, a 20-year-old unemployed grifter, took to a California freeway and decided to hold motorists hostage while they chanted a bunch of nonsense.

Among those people they illegally held against their will was a pregnant woman on her way to the hospital.

From Law Enforcement Today:

Tianna Arata, the 20-year-old woman who organized and led this protest, was among a handful of people who were informed by occupants inside of a vehicle that was blocked from progressing down the highway that a woman was about to give birth inside the vehicle:

“She is going to give birth. Get out of the road.”

The response from Arata regarding the situation was to refer to the pregnant woman as “ignorant.”

Reports have even surfaced that San Luis Obispo’s own mayor, Heidi Harmon, joined the protesters in the illegal activity. Furthermore, photo and video from the display showcases the mayor among the crowd.

In addition to holding motorists hostage, Arata was captured on film using her “upside-down” flag pole to smash car windows.

One window that was smashed by the group shattered all over a 4-year-old little girl in the backseat.

Here is a video of Arata’s arrest. Isn’t it glorious?

Arata is now facing 15 years in prison for her actions.

She is claiming that the arrest has “destroyed her young life” because she can’t sleep at night.

Arata spoke with The Tribune and says her arrest has heavily damaged her mental health. “It’s deteriorating me. Mentally as well as physically because I don’t get good rest. I’m waking up in the middle of the night.”

“I just turned 20 last month, there’s so much that I want to accomplish,” she continued. “And I’ve been through so much struggle in my life that dealing with this, it’s just, like, I want to be able to overcome it and to go on to the new steps of my life.”

Maybe she should stop being a terrorist and start being a productive citizen so she can finally “sleep” better and stop terrorizing innocent Americans.
