    That's not even an issue in this thread since no one was ran over.
    No, we aren't. We're talking about the use of the phrase "run over". The phrase has been defined. It fits. You and your best friend are wrong. Sorry.

    In legal terms it was vehicular assault.

    It's emotive language and using it is dishonest.

    1) You can't just drive into people because you think they are in your way.
    2) You don't have to physically go under the tires to be considered to have been run over (according to the dictionary).
    The definition of partisan is: "2. Devoted to or biased in support of a party, group, or cause:"

    Oh ****, I read a definition!

    1. you can't just block traffic because you want to
    2. the tires, or at least the entire car, need to travel over you to be run over.

    It is a phrase open to interpretation...
    I did, but here's the link again:
    Run over - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    And it's only open to interpretation in that you are arguing with a dictionary. The same way you could argue over what the word "obtuse" means. Look it up. There is no legal term for running someone over that I am aware of: it's vehicular assault.

    Do you miss having a best friend? Jerry is more a lover than a friend at this point anyway...

    I said the stopped car had run over someone.

    Note the difference between past tense and present tense
    The video shows 2 people struck by the car, no one was ran over because the car stopped before that occurred.

    Now we are getting somewhere... vehicular assault. Was he charged with that?

    And as I said, this entire issue is split down party lines. That's partisan. If you side with an issue because that's what people of your party are doing, that's partisan.

    1) You know what's worse that blocking traffic because you want to (a misdemeanor at worst)? Intentionally running over a group of people (or hitting them with your car if you prefer to argue with the dictionary).
    2) Call up the dictionary and take it up with them. LOL. I'm embarrassed for you.

    The car stopped before driving over her. That she went under the car does not mean the car drove over her, and the wheels never made contact with her. Clearly she was not ran over. Please stop using this emotive language.

    That's what "run over" usually means.
    Please explain how a stopped car is running over someone.
