    I'd rather debate with apdst or NavyPride - at least they stand for something.
    You seriously can't figure out where I stand on this? I bet you're, like, the only one.

    Re: Car vs Protesters - Who was right?

    A) using a vehicle as a weapon can be justified...
    B) if the people are threatening you

    C) attempting to carefully navigate a civilian crowd is also fine if they are illegally impeding traffic which
    D) doesn't justify vehicular assault (attempted or otherwise)...

    However E) if you are attempting to go about your way, carefully, and the protesters choose to stand in front of your car and basically be dicks, they have at least some moral culpability for what follows...

    Which doesn't change D.

    If I were in a position of authority, I would arrest both individuals, recognizing that it was the protester who illegally created an unpassable problem, and the guy in the car illegally attempted to cut that Gordian Knot with violence.



    As for me, I think the way to handle crowds like this is paintball guns, with frozen paintballs if they are being particularly dickish.






    Also worth noting - It's not immediately clear if the protesters were hippies. If that is so, then (hippies not being people), none of the above would apply and the driver is in the clear.

    I know what I'd do.
    Me too... stand there and then blame the guy for running into me.

    Why are you suddenly trying to act that you think a person in a car could be threatened by those outside it? Are you trying to sound all reasonable in this thread? In that other thread not once did you acknowledge what the driver could be feeling.

    Stop trying to manufacture reasons to agree with me.
    That incident still pisses me off. Idiot motor cyclists... Whatever happened?

    Do you apply that logic to all protestors or just those in the OP Bodhi?
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    All protestors who block traffic and inconvenience an entire city... yeah.

    Eh, ignore my previous question to you Bodhi, you're clearly just trolling.
    No I am not... there is nothing illegal about driving slowly through a crowd and I have personally done so many MANY times...
