Observed: Protectus obex

Meet Protectus obex – the modular steel barricades which can be linked together – used to control traffic, people, and protests. Protest is part of America, protected by the First Amendment, and necessary to change the current situation so that black lives matter.

Generally deployed by the police, but often deployed by departments of transportation. Generally used for protection, but also to limit our first amendment rights.
