    Sure, nothing illegal about that. It is illegal to drive over someone. I'm as guilty as anyone about doing questionable things while driving but when it goes bad...you are at fault.

    Unless he feared for his safety... if somebody is in front of him then and gets run over, it is not his fault.

    Taking up for this life-endangering driver while condemning the Ferguson rioters is the ultimate act of hypocrisy. Either all lives matter, or none of them do.

    Dishonest much? Never did I say anything anywhere close to that.

    There is NOTHING peaceful about blocking people's day. It is rude, disrespectful and it is hostile to it's core.
    And it goes further than just inconveniencing people. By this time, it was well known that the Ferguson protestors had been violent.

    ...and that makes it actually worse for people not knowing that they are entering into a "Ferguson Protest" that is taking place in another part of the country.
