    Car plows through protesters during Ferguson rally in south Minneapolis

    The irony that had this car actually been equipped with a plow (and been lowered), that woman might have been unhurt.

    They should have gotten their asses out of the road.

    So what? He didn't hit anybody initially. He is in a car. He is in the road. They are milling about trying to block traffic. He SLOWLY tried to move through and then they decided to attack him. Why you would defend these scum bags is beyond me... but maybe you are somebody who would protest in the street and condone attacking innocent people as they tried to go about their day. *shrugs*

    She hasn't the faintest clue as to what happened and as such she is making herself look REALLY foolish...

    If he plowed through he would have seriously ****ed up twenty or thirty people, if not killing a few to boot... plows through

    These drama queens make me laugh...

    Be it a legacy of racism or whatever, these protests show that something is badly broken in our society. People who usually will go on about tyranny and not trusting the government are all about trusting the government here, and vice versa. Sorry but if you have a problem with heavy handed government tyranny, you should have a problem with what happened in Ferguson. You should have a problem with using the military as a police force.

    It's not about race as much as it's about the relationship between the government and the governed. This, the Tea Party and OWS are all about that. I know that many here are too partisan to see that, but it is true.
    I have a problem with "how" the government handled Ferguson not that they "needed to try" to handle the situation.

    If you are in your car and a bunch of people are standing in the street for whatever reason and won't move, can you decide to just push thru them with your car? In my opinion no - no different than if people are annoying standing in a doorway talking (not rare) I can't just forcibly shove them out of the way.

    The car was attacked ONLY have a teenage girl's leg was trapped under the car - for which if the car went forward further she could have been seriously hurt.

    They driver changed lanes to the right to the slowly push thru the crowd, rather than to the left where a lane was open. The driver also could have simply backed up.

    That was not a riot, it was a protest. My inclination now is against the driver. If 20 people are standing in front your car - whether it be in a St Patrick's street party, impromptu football game win, or a protest, I don't think you can just put it in gear and drive - since you could knock people into other people not even knowing what's happened - which is what happened.

    I think the driver was likely in the wrong, unless the driver was being threatened BEFORE he started to drive into people. On the driver's behalf, he did stop when it appears he realized someone was knocked down and under his car. When she was clear, he then slowly drove on with the car under attack. I'm ok with that.

    What I'm not ok is he deciding to push thru a group of people with his car when the people were making no threats - or least none I saw. Even then, he should have backed up.

    Protests are very American. That was a protest, not a riot.
    What if he needed to make a right hand turn there and thought he could slowly just go through and they would part with no hassle? I have moved through a crowd like that before... people just moved. No big deal. I went through at slowly...

Then, and only then does the crowd hit and surround his car. Before that, no one was even near his car.
    No it does not. It shows he wanted to go through or turn right. He pulls up and gets close probably expecting them to part. They do not and kinda converge on his car probably because he is still rolling and possibly even bumping those that are very close. He is NOT plowing into anybody. At that point we have zero idea what happened AT the car. Did somebody throw something at his car? Was his window down as it is hard to tell. He then accelerates running into people and the attack is on.

Are people that crazy that it's worth running some people down because it's an inconvenience? If so, I give up on mankind.
    A crowd leaving a stadium that was "crossing the street to leave" is analogous to a protest crowd taking over an intersection and "not leaving"? Seriously? That is how your logic works?
