    re: Car plows through protesters during Ferguson rally in south Minneapolis [W:349]

    Anyone who criticizes the drivers action obviously does not remember what occurred in LA during the riots there. People being pulled out of cars and beaten close to death. I just don't understand how anyone could be ignorant enough to get in the way of a moving vehicle without knowing who is behind the wheel. You are really taking a chance with your life there and to just assume people are going to stop when you jump in front of their cars is just ignorant. Most of us don't get in our own cars and expect other cars to stop for us, so why in the heck would anyone jump infront of one without that metal encasement? I just keep thinking that if we are to get rid of some dumb people on the planet because of overpopulation, this may be one method.

    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    This thread has slowly gone from bad to bizarre.

    Why do we break down on the first amendment based on issues and causes, versus the right to be peacefully protest, as these folks were doing ?
    Peaceful protest doesn't block streets without a city permit.

    It's all kinds of stupid. They shouldn't be protesting in the street and at the same time every driver needs to check for pedestrians, especially in a crowd like that.
    Would it not be self defense to hit a driver who is currently running people over right around you?

    |f someone had a gun and shot a person who was intentionally running people down would it not be self defense?

    Operative words

    he made contact with pedestrians

    The peds did not run out in front of the moving car, the driver drove into the crowd hitting people. It was not self defense by the driver, the peds could have acted in self defense and shot the driver before he killed anyone through his running people over

    This is your first post in the thread, so I thought we did pretty well. Considering the responses about how great it was, I wasn't actually far off.

    Was I talking to you, or are you just being a hyperpartisan ****wad again? As usual.
