    Car plows through protesters during Ferguson rally in south Minneapolis

    Yeah, but in NYC you just have people wandering wherever. The media was almost jovial when they were saying, "we don't know where this will end!" Meanwhile the crowd quickly moves down whatever street it felt like and any ongoing cars have to stop and try to turn around in time before these idiots get to them first.

    It's ridiculous and gets worse given that NYC isn't exactly designed for two-way traffic or multiple routes.

    But you know, liberals love their protests and think it just swell.

    You nailed it! Exactly the crowd. But is there such a thing as a non-frustrated Occupier?

    If you didn't mean black, please explain what kind of person you were talking about.

    Perhaps the guy remembered Reginald Denny from the Rodney King riots and didn't care to offer himself as a repeat sacrifice.



    I wouldn't either. If need be I'd put the car in Low and grind over as many people as I had to.

    It's a very simple story.

    Michael Brown was walking down the middle of the street in traffic instead of the sidewalk. If he had walked on the sidewalk like everyone else, he would be alive today.

    How stupid can you be to rob a store, then draw attention to yourself by walking down the center of a city street???

    Parts of that, not the whole incident, reminds me of the NY bank gang who attacked a driver after hit them for blocking him in.

    The moral of which is, don't make someone driving a vehicle afraid he's going to get mobbed, and you won't get run over...

    I think its been established that he wasn't splitting atoms on his off time.
