    Really? Just as likely?

    How many Thanksgiving Parades have had a news story of a float running someone over?

    How many various OWS protests around the country have had a news story of some confrontation with police or other protesters.

    Horrible analogy.

    Is there, at this time, any evidence that this story is true?

    If you really cared about the health of your fetus, you wouldn't being putting it in potential danger by going to a protest that has had a history of disturbance and disruption.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

If he was doing something he shouldn't've or was failing to do something he should've, then charges MAY be appropriate.
    Sad to say, but there's a certain assumption of risk, especially at this point, involved with attending one of these protests.
    I may be wrong.

    Nice strawmanning

    You tried to suggest there's as reasonable similarity in the potential threat of a thanksgiving day parade float running people over and possibly running into violence by police or protesters at an OWS rally.

    Expecting that going to a OWS rally will result in police causing a miscarriage is not a common expectation. Expecting that you could run into a situation where there is pushing and shoving, the potential to be trapped within a crowd of people, and potentially crowd control items like pepper spray or even physical altercations however is a semi-reasonable expectation, especially on the same coast that the OWS: Oakland protests are happening where it'd be even more prevelant in the news.

    Getting roughed up at a protest, where there has already been violence on several occasions...very likely...obviously, inevitable.

    Maggie, for future reference, when I make mention of hacks, I am never referring to you.
