wait, you're more concerned with the protesting than the assault?My OP was not about assault, it was about blocking traffic to protest. Can you not English? Read my OP again..
Do you think blocking traffic is an acceptable way of protesting something?
Because you're ignoring the obvious crime being committed by individuals who are not the protestors you're so concerned about.You still haven't answered the question.
I have no problems with protesting as long as it does not interfere with third party lives. These protesters are holding up people's lives that have nothing to do with what they are protesting about. Blocking traffic is not the way to go.Because you're ignoring the obvious crime being committed by individuals who are not the protestors you're so concerned about.
How do you feel about the criminal assaulting people exercising their first amendment rights?
Does the constitution have your "as long as it doesn't interfere with third party lives" exemption?I have no problems with protesting as long as it does not interfere with third party lives. These protesters are holding up people's lives that have nothing to do with what they are protesting about. Blocking traffic is not the way to go.
I would have pulled them out of the way too, especially if they were keeping me from my family.
Now, let's see if you have grown a pair or are you a coward and won't answer the OP.
I'll even space out the words for you so you can read more clearly.
Is... blocking... traffic... an... acceptable... form... of... protesting... something?
Bullshit, they should be given medals.Personally, I don't think it is. Also those two guys assaulting the protestors should be prosecuted.
Bullshit, they should be given medals.
That one guy dragging the female protestor by the hair after she moved back into the road a second time reminds me of.....me.
I would never run over protestors unless I felt an imminent lethal threat by them as we have seen in some of these types of incidents. Thinking here of the truck driver Reginald Denny severely beaten by rioters during the Los Angeles Rodney King riots. But blocking another person from their rightful an legal ability to move or travel is in fact an act of force by a protestor. Therefore, I see no problem with any citizen using reasonable force to MOVE a person who is intentionally denying that person free movement.
It pleased me how he dragged them like a sack of potatoes LOL.
Here is one of my favorite similar videos. Blocking the free movement of other citizens is NOT a peaceful protest.
