If you want to protest, go ahead. It’s American. Do it peacefully or face the consequences. Unfortunately for law abiding folks, the consequences of last night’s, and maybe tonight’s, “protests” may go unpunished.
As I write this I see on the local L.A. news “protesters” marching on, and stopping, the 101 freeway.
Mow ‘em down. That’s not protest, that’s stupidity.
Protest if you will but don’t interfere with others just trying to live their lives. I probably wouldn’t vote to convict someone who, slowly, drove through the crowd. If they’re dumb enough to not get out of the way of slow moving vehicles, well, call it Darwinism.
The motorists don’t know what the mob may do. I still see the image of Reginald Denny being brutalized in the aftermath of the Rodney King cop trial. Here’s a guy just trying to do his job, driving his truck, and the next thing he knows, he’s getting pulled from the truck and getting hit with a cinder block to the head. And “Football” (was that his street name? Damien something?) rejoicing over a battered white guy.
But was he racist? Pick your name, Reginald or Football.
The cops are damned if they do, damned if they don’t enforce our laws and try to clear out the “protesters” or, gasp, actually have a confrontation with someone who wants to burn or destroy some innocents property or person.
Remember the movie “Soylent Green”? They had some nasty, yet useful, scooper trucks picking up the mobs. We need some of those scoopers now. Block a roadway? Get scooped. Loot? Get shot dead. Protest peacefully? Fine.
