The police chief said the driver wasn’t arrested, but only being questioned as a witness.
I saw the video. Nothing to it.
They are begging for trouble.
Thanks for that update. It would be a shame if the driver had been arrested. These knuckleheads have the right to “protest” but I’ve never seen anything guaranteeing them the right to interfere with the day to day business of Americans with their so called “protests”.
If I were to find myself blocked on a public roadway by a bunch of agitated “protestors” working themselves into a frenzy, pointing at me and pounding/slapping/scratching or otherwise damaging my car, I might just be in fear for my life with no choice but to rapidly exit the life-threatening situation.
Ferguson is so like a month and a half ago.
If any demonstrator ever lays down in front of my car, it'll be the last car he'll ever lay down in front of.
Here’s the video. It provides a pretty clear picture of what was going on. The inflammatory tweets were lefties hyperventilating.
I knew a kid who modified his windshield washer nozzles, and “provided” fluid for the new system. It was very effective.
I know of one car that it’s possible to reverse the headlight washer nozzles so they spray forward and to the sides, instead of backwards and onto the headlights. Don’t ask me how I know.
And you would be covered. In Missouri, attempting carjacking is grounds for deadly force.
Trying to keep it alive. We now have street thug senators siding with the thuggery, nice
They’re not protesters, they are domestic terrorists.
