    And generally speaking, if you think the guy should be charged, you would think he was was wrong. If you think he shouldn't, then the protesters were wrong. It's not a difficult concept.
    I have not participated in any of the Ferguson threads.

    Looking at the video, there was someone who appears to be in authority who was directing traffic around the intersection to the right of the protestors (you can see that on the right of the screen). The driver of the car chose to ignore that and chose to drive through the intersection irrespective of the pedestrians.

    Protestors blocking access can be annoying, that is undeniable but for goodness sake you do not just deliberately choose to run over pedestrians rather than take an extra minute to navigate around them. That is extreme and the driver is a nutjob who has severe road rage issues.

    I know. He's all, "I'm running rings around everyone" and he didn't even know it didn't happen in Ferguson. Too funny.

    Memory recall, maybe...or just reading the thread title...or the OP...or the OP's link...or any independent search one normally does while on a debate site to verify facts...

    I know. It's not like the protestors had any choice but to spill out into the road, surround cars and block lanes of traffic. If only there was a way to avoid standing in front of moving cars.

    Protestors surrounding your car in a highly charged atmosphere can be downright threatening.

    Pete, if you make it a practice of walking down the middle of the street because you think the pedestrian always has the right of way, you should stop doing that. I mean that sincerely. For your safety, I'm telling you that the pedestrian does not legally always have the right of way.

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?
    I wish I could've answered your poll but you decided there are only two types of opinions you care about and apparently libertarian opinions don't matter.
