    I see the damage to the car and 2 people on the ground, only one person with minor injuries and the driver was not arrested. That is not consistent with a scenario where people are being ran over.

    Why would it include something that does not have to happen in the definition? That makes no sense at all...

    Am I arguing with real people here?
    I can't speak for Jerry but in my case... no.

    2-ton vehicle grinding the body into the pavement requires major injuries. She had only minor injuries consistent with being knocked down, not ran over.

    Not aggravated assault, assault with a deadly weapon or attempted murder, which means no one was ran over, only struck.

    Because it's an example? You could be laying on the ground and be run over the by the tires. You didn't get knocked down, but you still got run over. That's how language works, man. I'm sorry that it's difficult for you to understand, but it literally says:

    "to collide with, knock down, and often drive over <ran over a dog>"

    Definition of often:
    Often - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary
    : many times : on many occasions

    Many times or on many occasions. It can be either. So what makes more sense?

    1) Dogs get driven over many times
    2) Dogs get driven over on many occasions

    I'm not a lawyer - I have no idea what they could charge him with for running over multiple people on purpose. I'd assume the first two would be most applicable, since attempted murder would have to imply some intent to kill.

    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?
    What does politics have to do with this issue? I am not following how that is relevant in the slightest...

    What does Wilson have to do WITH ANYTHING regarding this issue?

    Is it OK to hit a person on purpose who is pointing a gun at you that has just shot at you? What about a mime?

    1) I did. Many times... he drove up to the group and slowed to an almost stop and was accosted by a mob.
    2) Some people run over dogs repeatedly... but you didn't answer the question.

    It's been a few years since you and I talked about anything. We may have more in common now since I've recently taken up Buddhism and finally get your avatar

    Yes much in common. In that you both have trouble understanding basic English.

    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.

    Here's what plowing looks like:



    Compare and contrast that with OP. Clearly this car did not 'plow' through a crowd. More emotive language.
