Videos: Rabid Mob Attempts to Attack Terry Jones in Dearborn, MI

Last week, Florida Pastor Terry Jones was in Dearbornistan, MI to protest in front of a mosque. A quick trial was called and it was not only ruled that he could not conduct that protest but that he couldn't go anywhere near the mosque for three years. One week later, Jones was in Dearborn to protest in front of City Hall. His group was easily outnumbered by counter-protesters. The only things separating the two were barricades and four lanes of traffic. The counter-protesters broke through the barricades and crossed all four lanes, ostensibly to do physical harm. The only thing stopping them were riot police.

Via Click On Detroit:
DEARBORN, Mich. -- Florida pastor Terry Jones was outside Dearborn's City Hall for his planned 5 p.m. protest, drawing a crowd of hundreds.

"We're glad to be back," he told reporters. "We're going to talk about a number of issues. Of course Sharia, jihad, what happened last week and we're even going to be talking about president Obama's reelection."

Counter-protesters lined Michigan Avenue across the street from City Hall. About an hour into the protest, the crowds broke the barricades and a police line. They rushed the street but were quickly contained by riot police crews.

The crowd was throwing water bottles and shoes at supporters of Jones. Police worked to push the crowd back across Michigan Avenue.

At least one arrest was made.
There are several videos available at Click On Detroit. Here is an on-the-ground news report - with shots from above via helicopter - as the barricades fell. Take note as the reporter speaks of a few local Muslim leaders who were helping police discourage counter-protester behavior. Make no mistake, that is not because they agree with Jones or even because they necessarily agree with his right to speak. Instead, they understand optics and knew the counter-protesters' behavior was bad for business.

Those counter-protesters kinda remind you of the Tea Party, right? Puhlease.

Here is another angle (from the side of the counter-protesters):
