“We’re literally being followed by a police helicopter on the way to the Houston port,” Gilreath tweeted. “This is spooky, guys.” He went on to document city police lowering tents over protesters to hide their arrests, and said that officers were stomping on demonstrators with horses and using the animals’ heads to force the crowd into submission.
According to the Houston Chronicle, 20 people were arrested for trying to block a commercial port in Houston. Police said that those who were arrested were taken into custody for blocking public roadways.
