Police made at least four arrests as hundreds of protesters with the Black Lives Matter movement briefly shut stores at the sprawling Mall of America and blocked traffic at Minneapolis airport Wednesday, officials and reports said.The protest, just two days before Christmas, comes with the United States embroiled in an acrimonious national debate about racism and the use of deadly force by police, particularly in their relations with black men or youths.Bloomington Police arrested four people over the protest, Mall of America told ABC News, although there were no reports of damage to property.Black Lives Matter had called for a day of action in six major U.S. cities, including San Francisco, where eight protesters were arrested after they briefly walked onto a highway off-ramp by the international airport.
