    Hard to say - I don't think we can see enough to determine intent, etc. That's what the cops are there for.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    They better be glad the driver didn't go full Tony Stewart on all of them.

    Lets face it, even if it was intentional this driver would have the full-throated support of at least one righttard.

    Well I see that Stalin's 'useful idiots' are swarming the streets all over the country, tying up traffic on Thanksgiving weekend, and terrorizing law abiding citizens like this guy......pathetic really. Mostly a bunch of 'idealistic' kids who think they are part of 'something'. Not one of them could tell you the facts of the case, just like in the Trayvon Martin situation.

    Seems that one woman was treated for minor injuries. If it was intentional, he didn't do a very good job. I'm guessing it was an Asia behind the wheel. No real interest in the Michael Brown case. Then again, most of the protesters really don't care about Michael Brown either.

    Pretty much. If you watch the protests in NYC you'll see and hear some familiar things. They seem to be driven by former Occupy protestors who are trying to be relevant again and theres a smattering of people in Guy Fawkes masks. I'd say it stopped being about Michael Brown outside the Ferguson city limits.

    Again: blocking traffic and screwing with people's cars makes ordinarily safe situations dangerous. I suppose we're all supposed to trust that a mob of angry people won't be a danger to you and that we should wait for the massive crowd to arbitrarily decide they're done being somewhere with their stupid demonstration before the rest of us can go about our daily lives.

    This entitled mob mentality is self-destructive. I have half sympathy for the woman involved.

    It can be about Brown (or rather, police tactics and involvement with African Americans) outside Ferguson, but the idea that we should glorify thousands of people who go out of their way to screw with everyone else's day (and demonstrate their willingness to make everyone else feel endangered) is just beyond me.

    I agree. Only assholes wear Guy Fawkes masks.

    That would be the sensible thing to do, but right now many places across the country are letting these assholes walk wherever the hell they want for however long they want (perhaps because they can't immediately stop it to begin with). All the meanwhile some liberals are praising that as some sort of demonstration of how civilized they are.
