I would say "accident," yet it about the 5th video I have seen from the area showing folks run over by various vehicles. Perhaps there is a different view of the value of life, or the view of personal choices in street action? Perhaps the people who are driving don't give a hoot ? I do not see all this running over people as a coincidence. Bless the poor souls.

Personaly I dont blame the ones driving... I would not want to stop among those monkeys, they would prob kill or torture them

I would like to hate you for what you said. I really do hate your choice of words to call those emotional humans monkeys. You are probably right though about the notion that the crowd might torture the drivers; and so they should for running people over.

Well, now that was just my emotions talking. They shouldn't kill the drivers, but right now, its chaos and anything could happen.

... takes notes, just in case this scenario breaks out here

No, its true, look at those foolish monkeys running around the street throwing things, causing chaos, acting like baboons and one person gets in the way of a moving vehicle then all of a suddon the government is evil. All those idiots are doing is making it worse! Just like how they pick up the body and parade with it!

Did you even watch the video I posted... a diplomatic van clearly ran over like 10-20 people....that is no accident bud. HE clearly moved in the direction of a crowd of people and ran right through them...anyone that can defend that video is either an evil scumbag orreally messed up in the head!

Both videos are just sad, in the first one the van was honking the horn, and in the second one the size of that truck was enough to crush all his bones, pelvic , sternum , ribs, and whatever else, so the people moving him was a no brainer, best not let him lay and get run over again.

Makes me angry watching videos like that, just heart breaking, somebody loves him.

I watched the second video again, it does appear to me that the truck did attempt to avoid the guy, but was moving to fast and caught the guy off guard and I would assume the driver of the truck. Look just at impact the truck moving to the left and after it seems. Maybe that’s me looking for a little hope in that sad video, but I at least hope there is.

What in the hell is the matter with you?

Are you the over-weight mulleted gentleman I see in wal-mart wearing orange sweat pants pushing a cart full of cool blue gatorade, hamburger helper, and a screaming 3 year old? If so, that would explain your keen take on the situation.

If you are not mulleted and are in-fact a decent, contributing member of society or plan to be in the future, then I suggest you edit and remove your post promptly to save yourself future embarrassment and self hatred.

I hope you are just a troll. A sad miserable little troll, waiting to be fed by intelligent, compassionate people who look at others and do not see our differences as people, but our similarities.

I can't believe what I'm seeing, until there is a collective, conscious respect fo life we seemed to be doomed.
Hope things are sorted soon

Yes it is depressing isn't it?

It makes me think that the ones driving are not human or maybe if they are, I am not.

OP: I only skimmed through the posts so I might have missed it if somebody pointed that out already , but You have the description of the cars wrong , well the second car . It is not an ambulance , it is a firetruck.

Edit: Also if you hear closely , You can clearly hear the Fire trucks signals in the background and closing for some time , so my bet would be that they are trying to get to a fire hazard somewhere in the city and not try and ram those people on purpose. Actually it looks like the driver is taking a very hard left turn with brakes and slides. (you can see the slide marks on the street)

It's also quite interesting the anger it causes us to see a man hit by a car, and from the other threads it appears this is far greater than a man being hit by a bullet!

Weren't the pro-Mubarak group firing indiscriminantly into the crowd earlier?

Is there any difference?

Regarding the diplomatic car, I wonder what you or I would do if caught in a car in the middle of a crowd of angry protesting men perhaps with our wife and children. I'd certainly want to get the hell out of there and if the crowd surrounded the car and looked menacing, no doubt I would hit the gas to save my kids.

Sure, I'd be trying to avoid people if possible, but in a state of panic, who knows.

Of all 3 videos, the police van was the most apparently vindictive IMO.

Mob Mind,
out of control, literally on both sides of the coin, clearly.
The power of the immediate moment and flight or fight at a sustained period of time just doesnt produce good end results.
Absent of marked uniforms and determined 'sides' of the conflict, it's dozens of squimishes happening and ending and happening again on an impromptu battlefield, where no doubt emotions are out of control and totally in control of the chaos.
How do you bring order and any level of safety to a situation like we're seeing?
It doesnt seem like you can, does it?
More force?
More encounters.
Less force, less presence?
The search begins for, more encounters or property damage.
Then the unthinking unthinkable starts to occur, intentional directed acts of violence at random unknowns.
As it then escalates and begins the downward spiral into an emotionally fueled full on theater of attack, harm and kill, any ideology or political theme or position is replaced by live or die rage and it feeds upon itself.
Lost are any 'ideas' or 'beliefs' that initially contributed to the original conflict in the first place.
It then becomes war on the undefined, and this is the behavior within a city within a country of the same citizenry.
Now imagine how this same beast would feed upon the differring peoples of the world, when a conflict like this is brought on a global level, by (insert crisis here) !
This is how we're primed?
This is our go to, default way of resolve?
I'm not talking about organized directed military conflict,
I'm concerned with the mayhem and potential death and destruction brought on by the 'individual',
It's obvious that the potential to be anyone of the pedestrians, or anyone of the drivers, is in anyone of US,

and that, is only one potential unknown crisis away.

maybe the vehicle's were hijacked by the anti-govt thugs, cause none of the vehicles slowed down. the one white van that was stopped and the demonstrators moving towards it , then all of a sudden the van takes off and hits like 20-30 people.very sad

Force? Perhaps not, control though? Oh yes its possible .
Heres a bit of kit that Mubaraks police wish they could get thier hands on.

But the real question is SHOULD there be control and saftey at this stage? My answer is no, there should not. The situation is not as it is because rival football supporters are enjoying a mass punch up because its the weekend and they have all had a nose full of coc aine and a bellyfull of beer.
These demonstrations are happening because there is an unacceptable political system in place, which seeks only its own continuity, and cares little for the welfare of its citizens, and instigates the torture of its own people when it seems like a good idea. There is so much wrong with the political agenda in the region that even people who would often find themselves in polar opposition to one another, are together under a banner of defiance and a demand for change.
Given this situation, I believe that no one should FORCE peace on the demonstrators. Please remember that the pro Mubarak demonstrators are not to a man doing what they are doing for purely political reasons. Some are plain clothes policemen, and others are merely being paid to show up ! In reality the street battle element of recent events WAS an attempt at control. Mubarak (wether his government wish to admit it or not) organised a group in support of his position by nefarious means, and sent them forth with guns sticks knives and petrol bombs to harrass the anti government demonstrators. He did this so that he could attempt to sway public opinion by saying " Look what happens when my police arent around, when I have no control! Obviously I am the only one who can keep order here, because look at the chaos that even questioning my authority can bring".
Unfortunately for him, the anti government protestors are still in Tahir square, and have failed to be moved one inch by the violence vested upon them, and have fought the pro Mubarak elements back, time and again throwing off thier attacks, despite the fact that the pro Mubarak element are armed to the freakin teeth!
It wont be long before the pro Mubarak supporters go too far, and annoy the military to the point where they have to act against them. In the early days of the military presence around Tahir Square, the military had thier guns and tank turrets pointed in , toward the Square, where the party atmosphere still reigned . Now however, they are pointing thier guns outward, towards the direction from which the trouble makers appear.
The military know the score I believe. Its a matter of time before they act to remove Mubarak themselves, or at least before they have to respond to the violence and the fact that firearms are being smuggled into the area by the current presidents followers!

You know I have to admit this stuff makes me sick. I value my life and all human lives. I will say that when you put yourself in harms way these things happen. I ride motorcycle and if I get killed on my cycle I don't expect anyone to feel sorry for me. That's the risk I take. If you jump out of a plane and your parachute doesn't open, well that is the risk you took. If you are out in the streets protesting in a volatile situation you know damned well you are in danger. Even as a kid growing up when I first saw the Kent State video where the National guard opened fire on the protesters I couldn't feel sorry for them. You protest, you make your point and when it gets dangerous you go home and live to fight another day. As a kid I would resist my parents but when dad took his belt off I would immediately listen, most of the time. Every individual that breaths has to make their own choices as to what they are willing to live and die for.I understand these people want their freedom and they are willing to die for it so this happens. It's hard to watch and I'm sad that it's happening but am I angry at anyone, No. The people are uprising because of what they want and the government is doing what governments do. It would be nice if the people would disperse, go home and start to rebuild. See if anything changes and if it doesn't start another peaceful protest. When it gets dangerous, repeat.
Of course I don't understand their plight but death is death and there is no second chance, no matter what religion you are or where you come from.

Wow, now that's what I call straight out sad and inhuman.
Just watching these videos make me so grateful to be born in the U.S.
My prayers will go out to them, may god bless them.

The guy in the second video that was throwing rocks and such and then got run over?

I'll bet he doesn't have the guts to do that again.
