    So even if it isn't, perhaps you can explain how you have the right to kill people that inconvenience you?

    They could have. However in Minnesota, as in many other states, pedestrians have the right of way.

    And after reading many attitudes on this thread there is very good reason for that law.

    ....because there's a crowed of people blocking the view.

    You're demanding that a subjective point of view is an objective fact. That's your error. It is perfectly possible that the driver didn't know that was a bypass because, again, the cowed of people are blocking view of where the lane goes.

    That doesn't mean I support running protesters over, that only means you're wrong on this singular point.
    I clearly refuted this idea multiple times. There is no way in hell that a reasonable person could possibly conclude that there was no viable exit route; other cars were slowly moving through that route. All that Rice had to do was wait a couple minutes, assess the situation, and use that escape route. Or better yet, be an alert driver, notice the blockade ahead, and turn off of Lake Street onto Snelling Avenue, which is less than 500 feet from Minnehaha and (Don't take my word for it; go to Google maps to verify this for yourself.)

    So attempted vehicular homicide is OK with you, no wonder murdering unarmed black teens for tickling your face is OK with you.

    Don't pay attention to the arsonists setting fire to the city, that's OK, as long as they aren't burning down police property let it burn.

    I wonder, what if someone in the protest was armed? Would you consider it "fearing for their life?"
    I'd consider that unacceptable as well...

    I am not sure... it would depend, I guess.

    They are ALL breaking the law... I seriously doubt that none of them have a record.
