    If my child acted as stupid as she did I would take away her phone for two days...

    I am sorry but when debating Americans about and American issue you need to say the "hood". Bonnet is unacceptable.

    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.

    If I can get around to a computer with a full sized screen where I can watch the video again, I will post the actual times everything happened. I believe that I am right though about the car starting to push its way into the crowd before the guy started running.

    As far as the people blocking the road being stupid, I can agree with the sentiment and agree that I think they were wrong to do so but that does not warrant assault with a deadly weapon against them.

    I don't see an assault. I see a person who thought that they could drive slowly through, came up a little too fast and was set upon by a crowd.

    There is nothing illegal about driving slowly through a crowd.

    Then show the law that says that driving slowly through a crowd is illegal then... Since I, and thousands of others, have done it many times I would like to know that I was breaking the law. Thank you.

    There are more than enough ways to go around congested intersections. The idea they were in any way forced to drive over protesters is just dumb. I suffer from extreme road rage when I drive but I wouldn't just bowl over someone. I would tell them they are effin idiots and use an alternate route.
