(HorizonPost.com) – When Mohammed Ali was notified he would be drafted into the United States Army during the Vietnam War, he refused induction and for his efforts, he was stripped of his boxing world championship and banned from the sport. Many claim to revere him and his act of civil disobedience, but it seems that few are willing to emulate him when it comes to paying any sort of price for their actions.
Aubrey Jones, Jr. is the leader of Black Lives Matter 757 in Newport News, Virginia. He was recently convicted of two misdemeanors arising out of a protest against police brutality. He took it upon himself to leave a place of safety and enter the street where he then interfered with other people’s rights to move about freely by blocking traffic for two hours.

Rather than acknowledging that he broke the law and accepting the consequences of his actions like Ali did, Jones plans to appeal the ruling. People throughout history have been executed and put in prison while holding fast to their beliefs, yet today’s “Social Justice Warriors” seem unwilling to face even minor inconveniences.
