    Car vs Protesters - Who was right?

    It is my argument that the entire Ferguson issue has become almost entirely divided down party lines. In fact, so divided, that even the simple driving of a car into a group of people is divisive. Some people think it was within the drivers right and some don't. 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?

    Why is there no option for posters that don't lean either way?

    Charged with what? Reckless driving or as you are arguing intending to run people over? What?

    Also, your Title says: Car vs Protesters - Who was right?

    There is nothing in the poll about who is right. Are the protestors who are illegally blocking an intersection right or is the driver right for wanting to drive through where they were protesting?

    That's why it says tend to lean. If someone believes they truly have no lean, he/she can abstain.

    With anything. The general consensus on the below thread is that he did absolutely nothing wrong and that the protesters should have moved.

    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.

    The driver of the car is wrong, pedestrians have the right of way.

    I have a lean. But it's not conservative or liberal.

    Hold on, are people really defending someone for running over protesters? That's insane, you can't justify assault like that. What the driver did was wrong, no matter what your slant is, if you think treating people like roadkill is right you're a horrible, horrible human being.

    Go to the thread. A lot of people are.

    Apparently they were gathered illegally, and possibly threatening. Also, since she did not go under the tire, she was not run over.
