wow there are a lot of messed up posters on here. you do not derserve to run over if you sit in the road! Anyone that thinks so is really very :-# up!
Sitting on the road is a form of protest, it can beempowering and many times in the past has caused intergral change in the democratic protest.

Not inconveniencing the public and creating an effect are not mutually exclusive. You can do both.

Disgusting, it says more about the lack of self-control shown by these drivers who think its more of a inconvenience to simply turn around and go round the block, than it is to run over a HUMAN BEING protesting about their own (and fellow being) future rights.
The prick in the first video only cared about getting to work via the quickest means possible, making 5 bucks a hour and not being late in doing so was more important than this persons life. Its a shame the Hippie movement was based on respect values, as this guy should have the karma beaten into him black & blue.

Kinda reminds me of that episode of Boondocks where R. Kelly is on trial for peeing on that girl.....

If those hippies didn't wanna get run over, they shoulda moved out of the way!!!

Explanation: Regardless of the hassles of being held up.... if you run over anyone you most likely won't be going home any time soon!

Here is why....

Hit and Run (vehicular) [wiki]


Hit-and-run is the act of causing (or contributing to) a traffic accident (such as colliding with a person or a fixture), and failing to stop and identify oneself afterwards. It is considered a crime in most jurisdictions.


Personal Disclosure: So the protesters are being illegal... why join them???


Edited to clarify "why join them???" ... Compare the minor hassle of being held up with potential manslaughter record and jail/gaol time!

What's the problem with some of you guys? Saying that protesters should be run over just because they're in front of cars. One of these people in the videos could have been killed and some of you think that this is right, because "they're hippies protesting on the road and that's what that they deserve?"

For God's sake, you guys need some treatment.

So you think this is ok too?



They were protesting for better bikeways on the city and that guy just run over them. He was arrested for attempted homicide, as should everyone that does such a thing.

Those drivers need to be charged and sent to prison. I don't care what sort of "rush" they are in, how in hell does that give them the right to attempt to kill someone? Those people are straight up lunatics, they should never be on the road again. Protest or no protest, that psychotic behavior can't be justified. I feel sick from watching that. Sick people, shame on those of you who defend them. And yes, as some people mentioned, pedestrians, even if they are breaking the law *always* have the right of way, no matter what position they may be in. Jesus christ OP, check your head, maybe you disagree with their methods but saying that they deserve that and that it's "hilarious" is disgusting and frightening. I question your sanity and sense of compassion.

Explanation: Why Join Them???


Yes I know I qualified my question... I will ignore that clarity and make another point!

Maybe joining them in the sense of joining their protest... will make the outcry even bigger and maybe get something changed quikly by a grass roots movement etc!!!!

Should the outcry be... Oh damnit "I" can't get home right now etc..OR should it be about "Societies BROKEN! Lets FIX IT!" ?


Personal Disclosure: If all other peoples problems are not your problems then you are not SHARING in Society at all and are in fact a parasite!!!

I don't think that people have the 'right' to run anyone over, but what I think many others are saying is that sitting in the street or lying down infront of a moving vehicle is likely going to get you run over. Yes, the people who actually are crazy enough to intentionally drive over someone should be prosectuted but, it's nothing to be 'shocked' about.
If I ever had protestors sitting infront of my car and I was in a hurry to get to some place...I wouldn't run them over, but I would get angry. Some people would get angry and impatient enough not to care.
Not everyone values human life or life in general in the same way. And your average joe isn't going to care what you're protesting about.

They're basically saying 'over my dead body.' They took their chances with these extreme protests. I see nothing done wrong. The drivers called their bluff, but too bad for them they weren't bluffing.

I can just see telling the boss that you were late or didn't make a sales call because the road was blocked by protestors.

I agree with others that ask why should I be inconvenienced because someone doesn't like trees being cut down, whales being killed, the draft, war, global warming, cars, G8, G20, Bilderberg and thousands of other things.

Trees are nice but I don't think we can cut them all down, never seen a whale except in pictures and videos (don't think V'GER will show up looking for whales), too old for draft or war and didn't support the protests in the 60's either, not going to live long enough to worry about global warming, if it exists, don't drive much anymore, don't have enough money to worry about G8/G20 policies and not going to live long enough to see the Bilderbergs get their act together.

If you don't like how things are run then start a business and do it your way, if you can (you will probably end up doing it like everyone else or go broke) or run for office with a platform of changing laws and policies.

Like it or not the majority is slow to change and provides a check on those that are overly passionate about their cause.

Obviously what they did was highly stupid...but do you really think the "need to be somewhere" is so important that these people have the right to run over people? What a load of crap, the drivers should be charged.

It's nothing short of sickening, isn't it


No compassion = no hope.

We're all doomed to stagnate into a police state, because we can't inconvineince some poor mug. And anyone who dare stand up against a corrupt goverment is deemed a hippy, or stupid, by those who are too thick to think for themselves. Don't worry, the goverment have our best interest at heart, we don't need to think anymore.
