One frustrated commuter shouted at the protesters: "Spend the night in jail! That's where you guys are going!"
He and hundreds of others were angry that their morning commute was blocked by the group of students who were demonstrating over the Ferguson decision.
While the protest on I-5 near Nobel Drive did not last long, the situation backed up freeway traffic for hours.
"It was pretty swift. We got there fast and we got them out of the way, and we got people back going on the road again," said California Highway Patrol Officer Jake Sanchez.

The protesters were clearly in the wrong, so why didn't law enforcement arrest them?
