Driver hits three protesters in St. Louis


A driver in St. Louis was taken into custody after three protesters who blocked traffic were hit by a car during a march for a transgender woman shot and killed by police a day earlier

"The protesters surrounded the vehicle and began striking it with their hands and a flag pole. Several protesters also kicked and jumped on top of the vehicle,"

Three protesters suffered minor injuries when the driver drove away. They refused medical attention on the scene

Doesn't Activist 101 teach to swamp cars and block traffic to cause maximum disruption? How does one get out of that situation without knocking over people

That video looks old. Like it was taken by a VHS camcorder.
My question is why did they attack the car? What did the driver do to provoke the attack?

Looks like he was trying to pass through the mayhem. He wanted to get by but they yelled "stop, stop". That's not normal and threatening to anyone trying to get through.

Is that your justification for running people down? "I saw up ahead the road was blocked by people so I drove into the middle of that anyway... and had to accelerate thru them to get by..."

You make it sound like he floored the gas pedal and protestors went flying. The driver inched forward trying to go down a public road. In fact, the mob went running toward the car. Who does that? Did someone tell these people to go play in traffic as a joke and they actually did it?

Stupid people protesting in the roads, pfffft, i dont care if your white black straight or gay. Streets are made to drive on not block. How do they know that person didnt have somewhere they really needed to be or they had a bad day? Anyway, i dont feel sorry for retards that block streets for protesting.

This random abuse of people who had nothing to do with whatever set the protesters off is getting old. Passing your hurt feeling or emotion forward randomly isn't the proper thing. But then ya can't fix screwed up very often.

Pretty sure the trans woman who had been shot and killed had a worse day.

Here are more details.....

TextPolice say they were responding to a domestic disturbance when they found Herring cut badly across the face, arms and chest.

Officers told News 4 the 30-year-old mother was armed with a large kitchen knife, slashing at police, even cutting one on the arm when two officers returned fire, ending her life.

When I fear for my life, I have the right to protect my self. I will do the same maybe. Every since I watched Rodney King beating I had this stance. I am not stopping for a violent mob trying to kill me.

"The protesters surrounded the vehicle and began striking it with their hands and a flag pole. Several protesters also kicked and jumped on top of the vehicle," police said.

Sounds like self defence to me.

So somebody with a knife went after the police and bought their ticket to hell. So why are they protesting??? I'm on the drivers side on this they were probably fearinf for their lives.

Screw that. Never be surounded by protestors. Hit the gas and dont risk your life. Jail is better than a wheel chair or death.

Get out of the road or get hit by cars.

I am with you on this, I have distinct memories of Reginald Denny and the beating he suffered for purely being white and in the wrong place at the wrong time.

For those saying just drive around, I do not know the information surrounding this but I never listen to the radio I always listen to my own music, I also rarely watch TV.

So how would I know there is a protest, plus maybe the guy did not know an alternate route so he hoped as an innocent bystander to be allowed through.

Also if you find yourself in this position and feel you have to drive off and the police come to arrest you, I was afraid for my life, and I would like to speak to my lawyer should be all that you say to the police.
