    But, but, but... he didn't have to drive through the intersection... (I said that in a whiney voice, by the way, with my hands waving about frantically and dancing on my tip toes.)

    What if some person had to get somewhere for an emergency? What if the crowd would not listen? Can the person try to drive though? I am interested in hearing your opinion. I know I would drive through carefully and if they did not move or attacked my car I would drive faster and hope they got out of the way... if not? Their ****ing problem. What is your take?
    I gave a take. I have been stopped because of a mob of people leaving a football game. It was irritating but I did not use my vehicle as a way to force my way through the crowd. If there was an opening, I would have taken that route, otherwise, I'm waiting so I don't hit the people. It's not worth a life.

    There was NO emergency in this situation so not worth my time responding to a straw man.

    33 charged with blocking L.A. city streets during immigration protests | L.A. NOW | Los Angeles Times
    Were any of the people who were hit in *this* incident charged with a crime?

    No one tried to damage his car until *after* he ran into a few of them

    Maybe they damaged his car because he tried to run them over.

    And that point is being conveniently missed.

    Don't answer if you don't like but it does go to show how you really feel. If they are free to block the intersection and not have a car attempt to drive through 100% of the time then you would not allow anybody to drive through in an emergency situation either.

    You know for certain that right when he pulled up nobody kicked at his doors, or anything? Nothing was thrown?

    Of course nobody can tell from that video, but you two seem pretty certain.

    Maybe he ran them over after they started damaging his car and threatening to kill him?

    This is a great game... isn't it? You condemning a person with very little in the way of facts.
