    Then go back and get caught up and in the future, confirm what the hell I'm talking about, before jumping on the band wagon.

    In this case no, but it Would be easy to do at a future time. If protests are likely, send in the National Guard, and break them up before it gets started.

    People intentional step into the street and block cars a lot, especially after concerts, sporting events in my neck of the woods. That does not give a motorist the green light to run them down.

    If this assh**** was so afraid of these protestors, then why would he head their way?

    Context is everything. Here's a video of the incident:



    We see that the protesters have this intersection almost completely blocked. The car in question was coming from the top side of this intersection; note that traffic from here did have a narrow escape route to the road on the right. But instead of taking that escape route, the driver of this vehicle makes a highly suspect decision at 0:02 to change lanes to the *right*, where there was no escape route, instead of to the left, where there was. He or she then chooses to plow right through the protesters, who immediately swarm the car in apparent anger. He or she then drives further, hitting more pedestrians.

    Say what you want about the protesters and their blocking a public intersection. But I've watched this video several times, and I cannot find any justification for this driver's actions. None. Thank God nobody got seriously hurt, though.

    Considering their track record, it's hard to agree what we can trust the cops any more.

    Because there was no other direction to go?

    The rioters could have stayed out of the road.
