Here I go again...employing reason in a stupid thread...
Where was the cop car again relative to hers?
She claimed she called the cops...which would make sense if he was following her close to her tail as everyone acknowledges..
The cop car was not behind her...it was in front with the man talking to the cop..
The Cop pulled HIM over. She pulled up behind them (the cop) . Cops do not pull people over and then park a 50 yards in front of them...It is not safe...Cops 101.
It is clear the officer said , "I told him to not follow."

I saw this video yesterday and haven't had a chance to read through the thread yet, but I wanted to say this. This woman has the right to free speech, that is true. She absolutely has the right to form an opinion and express it to this man who had up those signs. But she also had the right to choose. The right to choose between expressing her opinion in a respectful manner or doing it in a disrespectful manner. She CHOSE to do so in a disrespectful manner. She let the worst of herself out, and it brought the worst of someone else out. Now I don't know the full true story, none of us do, but I'll go ahead and say that he didn't have the right to chase her down, especially if it required the breaking of traffic laws to do so. A case can be made for getting her plate numbers, but that doesn't require one to give chase usually. My bet is that the guy in the car got a tounge lashing from the cop just like she did. The cop did good in trying to deescalate the situation, no one deserved jail for what happened here. She got scared and she deserved it, heck I'd say she needed it. She makes a distinction between flipping him off and yelling obscenities out her window, but personally I don't. They both come from hate and are meant to hurt. Hopefully that cop put the fear of god in that guy for giving chase.
That said, I'll tell her what I tell my wife when she gets road ragey.
"The next person you flip off might ignore you, or they might flip you off back. But don't forget and the weirdo that will track you down and visit you in the middle of the night with rope and a knife. Maybe they'll spend the next 2 weeks grilling up your various parts. Who knows, it's a fun world out there."

The solution is to stop falling for the pity-party they seem to surround themselves with. The first thought in my mind when she said she was a 102/104 pound woman was, how much did she weigh before she flipped the guy a bird?
The solution to her is for her victim to file harassment charges and then sue the hate out of her. Leave her desperate, defenseless, and destitute like she wants to leave others. If, and it's a big if, she sees the error of her ways, then we can pity her and help her back into society.
The solution to others is the same. No more pity, only scorn as long as they continue to be dangerous to others.
