    X Factor - your entire premise is that this guy was somehow being attacked because there was a group of non-violent, peaceful protesters in front of him. The video evidence shows no one going towards his car until he drives into them. If he was scared, there was a lane wide ****ing open on the left that 3434 other cars found.

    I showed you an example of a group of people who had intent to attack a person in a car. You get to be paranoid in that situation, X Factor. When a group of bikers surround your car and attempt to slow you down. You don't get to be ****ing scared when there is a group of people in front of you. That's not scary. If you are scared of that, then don't go into ****ing cities.

    That's insanity. Stay in West Viriginia.

    Re: Car vs Protesters - Who was right?

    Just watched the video..it is shocking..the guy/girl tried to drive through the thickest of the protesters..not stopping..even with people on his bonnet..

    Even though they are in the middle of the road..they are not ''jaywalking'' they were protesting and the police should have cordoned the road off and offered an alternative route..Or if it had been me I would have just reversed and gone somewhere else..

    That person in red was so, so lucky..there could have been children there.

    People like this have no business driving a car.

    It was a child - the person who ended up underneath the car was underage. X Factor said he was worried she'd rape him though.

I'm posting this poll to get an idea of what your lean is (liberal vs conservative) and where you stand on whether the driver should be charged or not.

    If you have not seen or looked into this yet, here are videos shot of the incident:



    *Edit:

    The last option should say liberal - could a mod edit that for me?

Keep your critiques, criticisms, and conversations about your thoughts on other posters out of upstairs threads. Whether or not you like the style or who you'd rather debate is not the topic of this thread. Additionally baiting nicknames and throw away comments are not welcome.

    That whole road blocking thing was probably one of the most insufferable and ineffective styles of protests I've seen.

    Most were but some clearly jumped in front of him... in fact, one guy runs from around ten feet away.

    . Then . don't . go . into . the . road .

    Thank goodness most people have a more reasonable view about what people are allowed to do and not allowed to do (protesting peacefully allowed, running people down with a car for no reason whatsoever not allowed).
    There is NOTHING peaceful about blocking people's day. It is rude, disrespectful and it is hostile to it's core.

    The guy didnt even start running until the car started trying to force its way through the crowd and he STILL didnt jump in front of the car.

    He starts when the car is approaching the crowd and who knows why the people got in the drivers way and refused to move... but they are stupid for doing so.
