    As opposed to just making up a daffynitiont

    Judges just love daffynitions. Especially when they come from people who have represented themselves in court.

    -The driver couldn't see the escape route to the left (it was as clear as crystal);
    -He was pissed, so he had a right or at least justification for plowing through the crowd (what civilized nation even considers tolerating such a thing?);
    -He was surrounded by protesters and had no choice (haha, yeah right);

    Etc. It's quite entertaining in a bad way.
    You left out the best one of all

    She wasn't run over. She just fell under the car after the car hit her and knocked her down.

    Under the law, one doesn't have to prove that the driver wanted to hurt anyone. All that is needed to show intent is that the driver's actions (driving the car into a crowd of people) were deliberate and knowing and that the harm those actions caused were foreseeable by a reasonable person.

    No reasonable person would say that it's unforseeable that driving a car into a crowd would end up hurting someone.
    Ah but if you think the actions of the crowd is irrelevant to a jury, well it's not and in this case, it's very relevant. I think a lot of people (not completely hellbent on defending the protestors at all cost) could put themselves in a situation like that and think "I wouldn't stick around either given everything that had gone on prior to that point". In fact, a jury would be instructed to view the situation from the shoes of the defendant (in this case the driver).

    I will say that I would have no trouble if this went to a jury trial, no matter the outcome. This is exactly what trials are for.

    Right. That does not prove you are correct though...

    A couple years ago I was at a ranch of Arabians and they were knocking us around in their efforts to compete for our attention.
