    Blocking major intersections is not "peaceful protest".

    Was the person in the Subaru on the way to the hospital? Could there have been a pregnant woman or a stroke victim in the passenger's seat?

    Oh, I believe it WAS intentional... it was intentionally to avoid this:



    And when an angry crowd is surrounding your car (a felony) and beating on it you are well within your rights to assume that the end result, if you hang around, would be no different than that truck driver.

    The driver shouldn't be required to assume a peaceful outcome when the crowd was not peaceful.

Really though, I blame the police because this should of been cordoned off right?
    He shouldn't have been in the middle of them to begin with. He put himself and his hypothetical child in danger... not to mention the woman.

    Speaking of which....

    “Not once did I consider our attackers to be ‘bad people.’ I trust that they weren’t trying to hurt me. In fact, if they knew me, I bet they’d think I was okay,” wrote Friedfeld in an editorial featured in The Hoya, the university’s newspaper. “The fact that these two kids, who appeared younger than I, have even had to entertain these questions suggests their universes are light years away from mine.”

    Friedfeld claims it is the pronounced inequality gap in Washington, D.C. that has fueled these types of crimes. He also says that as a middle-class man, he does not have the right to judge his muggers.

    “Who am I to stand from my perch of privilege, surrounded by million-dollar homes and paying for a $60,000 education, to condemn these young men as ‘thugs?’” asks Friedfeld. “It’s precisely this kind of ‘otherization’ that fuels the problem.”

    Police also aren’t the solution to the problem, Friedfeld argues.

    “If we ever want opportunistic crime to end, we should look at ourselves first. Simply amplifying police presence will not solve the issue. Police protect us by keeping those ‘bad people’ out of our neighborhood, and I’m grateful for it. And yet, I realize it’s self-serving and doesn’t actually fix anything.”

    Friedfeld suggests that the “privileged” adapt to normalized crime, until the wrongs of the past are righted.

    “The millennial generation is taking over the reins of the world, and thus we are presented with a wonderful opportunity to right some of the wrongs of the past,” writes Friedfeld. “Until we do so, we should get comfortable with sporadic muggings and break-ins. I can hardly blame them. The cards are all in our hands, and we’re not playing them.”

    I do not want to live in his world.

    I hope he does not have kids.

    I'm not following.

    You're saying that the driver shouldn't have taken his car onto a public roadway?

    Or...?

    I'm saying he should have turned left like all the other drivers were doing. He was a fool to drive into the crowd. He put himself and all the people in the crowd in danger.

    While they should not have been blocking the road, he exacerbated the problem.

    From the helicopter view it shows that there were cars going around the rioters. This driver did indeed "plow through" the protesters because you can clearly see other cars going around the protesters.

    That's what I saw too. He did indeed "plow through" when he didn't have to.
