(London Daily Mail) Protests in Charlotte turned violent for a third night when police in riot gear used pepper spray on demonstrators who blocked a highway.
Officers stormed a line of protesters who had formed a human chain on I-277 and blocked traffic.
The cops batted them with their shields and pushed them off the road, spraying their faces with pepper spray.

A dozen of the demonstrators were hit and were unable to open their eyes as they screamed: 'It burns!'
The protesters had come prepared and had milk in spray bottles which helps overcome the efforts of pepper spray.
