    I'm not all over the place. Unless this guy was blind or stupid, there is no reason he should have drove into this crowd.

    As a NYer, I have been in the middle of busy intersections hundreds of times. Never got hit by a car so why should I expect to get hit by a car?

    It wasn't a dangerous situation. They were there in plain sight of all the drivers.

    You not agreeing with his reason does not mean that he does not have a valid reason. As I pointed out and you have ignored... driving through the crowd is not illegal.

    A comparable situation to this is that near where I used to work people would decide to protest right in the middle of a road that went through the woods where street lights are no where to be found and sunlight struggles to reach. They would start their protest when it was still dark out well before the sun came up right around a sharp corner that you couldn't see around. They could have easily been killed and honestly I'm amazed I didn't hear of any stories of them being run over.

    New York is probably not comparable to any other big city, let alone regular city... not to mention the analogy is not valid.

    Unless there was an emergency, there is no valid reason to drive into a crowd of people.

    Walking into the road is always dangerous unless the police have cordoned off by officials...

    AFAIK, hitting people with you car is illegal in any city if it's avoidable.

    These people were in daylight and there was a large group of them making it impossible not to see them protesting. All other cars did the right thing by passing to the left. This guy felt entitled to drive through them.
