Love how the guy beating on this mans vehicle is wearing a shirt that says something along the lines of "no police," yet when the police officer activates his emergency lights to stop the vehicle they are cheering and saying "get him."
So what is it, no police or do they want them around? I am confused.

Back again. An automoble should not be driven towards a group, gathering, mob, parade, assembly of people in ANY event. The correct course of action by a conscientious driver would be to stay well clear in all cases. An automobile is a lethal weapon in my book and should in all cases be considered this way and used accordingly.

The guy in the car didn't have a birds eye view like us. All he had was a mob in front of him, he tried to slowly get through the mob, only accelerating when his car was attacked. See it from his view, his position, his speed, his safety point of view. You're Monday morning quarterbacking a man in a dangerous, developing situation. And let us not forget the violent history of this type of protest.

All he had to do was back up and go around the block .No instead he choose to force his way and that was clear when he started to go . People on the street or not i don't really care he is lucky he wasn't dragged out and killed . People have a right to protest where they want, causing disruption is really part of the game . How many protest have been won sitting at home . Makes me wonder at some of the comments here , the inconvenience of driving an extra 5 minutes around the block is trumped by " i need to get to my destination and don't care what is my way me .. me..me .. me.. f. u. all for trying to make take an extra 5 minutes to get home ".
What is an acceptable protest to some of you people on here ? Or I guess to some it is better to whine about where your countries are going and whine about the people trying to stand up .. WTH
think the subaru driver is clear of charges as of now still and the van driver is the one they are throwing the book at
As bystanders screamed loudly and rushed to the woman's aid (pictured), the vehicle briefly stopped, before driving off. However, it came to a halt further down the road and the driver was taken into custody. No charges have yet been filed against him. (Photo: AP)

Thats what I don't get people have been standing up protesting where our countries are going since 2008 people just laughed at the protesters on wall st . From I csn tell the only time people get in a huff on here is when they feel their second admendment is in question . Who care banks are raping our countries .. who care cops are constantly over stepping their boundries . Who cares that our freedoms and rights are being stripped away .. ya i guess we might do something a day or two after it is to late .
Eta .. at least they are trying to something regardless how you feel they are going about it ..

Maybe if the Aliens arrive i'll pay attention to stop signs on my way out of the city lol, be sure to put the recycling bin out before I abandon my house.... sheeesh
