But she said she was not planning to deliberately cross the line to get arrested. Blackmon and Kaiman were among hundreds of clergy and lay leaders from various faiths who spent four-and-a-half hours praying for peace and asking police officers nearby to admit that wrong had happened and be willing to work for change.
