Skip to comments.Local family's emergency trip to hospital interrupted by demonstrators (assault driver going to ER)
Posted on 07/17/2013 10:43:17 AM PDT by matt04
Hundreds of people marched in protest to the George Zimmerman verdict on Monday.
"No justice, no peace," they yelled as they walked from the Byrd Funeral Home in the 2500 block of Wheeler to the Southmore Street overpass bridge near Highway 288.
Just after 7p.m. Monday, the demonstrators spilled out onto the road and blocked traffic for about 15 minutes.
"I looked up and I see all the protesters, they're everywhere," said Georgia, who asked that her last name not be used. "So, we got into the traffic and they're stopping us and not letting us go."
Georgia was on her way to Texas Children's Hospital in the Medical Center because her 7-year-old granddaughter was having an allergic reaction to some medication.
Georgia's daughter was driving and tried to go around the demonstrators by driving on the grassy shoulder.
"One of them was hitting the windshield and I was just screaming, 'We've got to get to the hospital,' and they were screaming and chanting," she said. "All I could think of was, I got to get my granddaughter to the hospital."
"My mom rolled down the window," said Georgia's daughter. "She said, 'We're trying to get my granddaughter to the hospital,' and a guy just started hitting her."
A Local 2 camera covering the protest recorded the entire incident. On the video you could see Georgia sitting in the front seat of an SUV, she had her window down and you can see a man reach in and grab her. Georgia said she was hit.

People goin’ to da hospitl. Trayvon didn’ get to go to no hospitl.
I saw a bunch of thugs in LA causing a small riot. I saw thugs jumping on and over the hood of what looked to be a Cadillac.
No respect for others property, no respect for others well being, no respect for laws.
These thug rioters cause normal people to think they could potentially break a law because they demonstrate they have no respect for laws.
The comments are a hoot. Apparently in the locale he's referred to as "Q Tip"
‘We’ve got to get to the hospital,’
Quanell Ralph Evans was born in Los Angeles, California. Both parents were Nation of Islam converts. When they divorced, Evans moved to Houston to live with his mother and younger brother in the South Acres neighborhood, where he attended Worthing High School. Quanell was a drug dealer in the Sunnyside community located in southern Houston, Texas. Quanell served jail time for selling crack cocaine in the Sunnyside and Acres Homes subdivisions in Houston, Texas, in the 1980s.
He is the leader of the New Black Panther Party leader in Houston/Nation of Islam member.
Qtip (love that) is headed to river oaks in Houston Sunday..... hopefully the secret service for the Bush family will not take kindly to him trampling their yards in the area.
I saw that in the comments. Is there any more information on this elsewhere?
These are the times when CCW comes in handy. :-)
The thug mentality at work is exactly what got their pseudo-hero killed.
CCW is fine but for Pete sakes they were behind the wheel of a 3000 pound weapon. Anyone who jumps in front of or on my car and threatens me or my family will have tire track across their body! Why do people not use what’s at hand?
Quanell, the “peaceful” Nation of Islamist, drug dealing, NBP leader in Houston.
And apparently immune from arrest?
Exactly. . .my father ran into riots in DC back in the 60’s. . .surrounded his little VW Beatle. . .my dad said he simply downshifted into second gear and floored it. . .rioters parted like the Red Sea. . and those that didn’t move bounced off his car (and one or two got run over).
Yes I googled and it was on several sites - sorry can’t recall at the moment but his comment was something like “just like sanford, they don’t want us here”
I believe you got it right, sounds just like what the idiots will start chanting.
Peaceful Q-tip says? Opposed to what??
Q-tip is mad that Tray-table got folded ?
If al the drivers in that “incident” had done the same they would have been justified.
After the first smearing of a protestor who tried to block something in the late 60s by lying down in front of a bulldozer,that tactic was abandoned by protestors in the U.S.It was truly likely the bulldozer operator couldn’t see the fool.
Now if a mob is attacking my car and threatening me and mine,I’ll sound the horn and step on the gas.Pleading with rabid animals only shows weakness which will embolden the pack.
“My mom rolled down the window,” said Georgia’s daughter. “She said, ‘We’re trying to get my granddaughter to the hospital,’ and a guy just started hitting her.”
At this point there would have been some lead injection.
Be interesting to see what happens with that...can’t imagine it even being ALLOWED to happen. QX is a PITA.
