    Charges have not been filed yet. Doesn't really mean much - she could sue in civil court even if none are filed (which they certainly still could be). She was a minor - fyi. And he probably shouldn't have a license anymore considering he:

    1) Ran over (or hit if you prefer) a group of people with his car on purpose.
    2) Has three drunk driving convictions.

    Four strikes and your out.

    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.
    Can't you read? Haven't you ever read a definition? It clearly says biased in support of a party, group or cause. That pertains to practically EVERYTHING ON THE PLANET.\

    1. Prove he went in to intentionally run people over...
    2. You didn't clarify "often". Is it some times running them over or running the over repeatedly

    You're just making stuff up at this point. Take it up with Merriam. Call them. I'm sure there's a number. It's not my fault the English language disagrees with that thing you call your brain.

    You said the driver should have seen the detour. No, only a reasonable person should have seen the detour. The driver was not a reasonable person as his driving history and actions that day attest; so he would not have seen that detour.

    Likewise the pedestrians should have seen the alternate ways for them to go other than the street, but again these aren't reasonable people we're talking about.

    The saying is three strikes and you are out and I guess you think you have been striking me out?

    1. Prove it was on purpose
    2. Past driving actions are irrelevant to this specific incident and case.

    You didn't read your own definition. I didn't link to one because I can read and used yours. All 3 of those criteria have to occur for it to be 'ran over'. Only the first 2 occurred, which means she was struck, not ran over.

    This is what happens when you use emotive language.

    Agreed - a lot of things in life happen to be partisan. However, I am not being biased in support of my party on this issue. I don't think it's okay to hit anyone with your car on purpose - ever. And I don't think Darren Wilson should be charged based on the evidence.

    1) Because he drove into a group of people standing directly in front of him? Look at the gif on this page (you won't).

    2) No, it isn't. It even says as in a dog right afterward. Unless you are suggesting they think people run over dogs repeatedly?

    It's a list of things. It uses the word often - meaning not all of the time. Am I arguing with real people here?
