    That's an unreasonable standard

    No one can not know as much as he does.

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

    Right!
    Let me tell you what I see in the video. The car in question is in the left hand lane and moves over into the right hand lane. He is trying to obey traffic laws by not doing what everyone else is doing and driving into an apposing lane of traffic in order to dodge protesters that should not legally be blocking the roadway. Probably incensed at the fact that he is the only one following the traffic laws while everyone else is breaking them, he honks his horn. At this point, you can see at the :03-:07 mark on the tape, a man in a black jacket climbing onto the hood of his car. I assume the man took offense to the person in the car honking his horn at him for illegally blocking the intersection. If the protesters allowed cars thru, what would be the point in the protest. The point of the protest is to block traffic in order to gain attention to their cause. So they are doing just that in this video. When someone tries to defy that, they begin to act. He is not running anyone over at this point, simply honked to try to get the protesters out of his way so he can legally proceed thru the intersection. As the man climbs on top of his car he continues to move, other protesters see this and begin to surround his car in order to get it to stop. The driver probably takes this as a threat because he feels he is being surrounded by an angry mob. They clearly are angry at his attempt to thwart their attempt at blocking traffic otherwise they would simply let the man thru. As a white man, surrounded by angry black protesters, what is one to think. We clearly know what to expect based on the violence that has erupted thru the city already. We clearly know what to expect when it mirrors a very similar riot in LA where white people were dragged and nearly beaten to death from their vehicles. This man had that image going thru his head and panicked.. He moved thru a crowd that became more hostile the more he tried to get out of the situation. And as a result, his reaction to them was more hostile in return. I think that is a much more accurate assessment, then your biased assessment above.

    The whole situation was started by the man honking at the protesters, and one of the protesters climbing on top of the car. He had climbed on top of the car WELL BEFORE the driver ran anyone over.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Car plows through protesters during Ferguson rally in south Minneapolis [W:349]Personal attacks, enough.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
