    I agree, but I wouldn't expect a bunch of idiots to act like thoughtful civilized people, hence I would never have shown up in downtown Minneapolis on the eve of this verdict

    I wouldn’t have stopped..if you’re stupid enough to jump into traffic especially a loaded semi..then you deserve to be used as speed bump...

    But if you say that about the Capitol riot, they'll call you a communist.

    Seems like some of you want to call out whether they are protestors or rioters.

    IT DOESN'T MATTER.

    I posted this to help any novice drivers on what to do. Drive slow and keep moving. Do not give them the opportunity to jump on your truck. At all.

    Just DO NOT STOP. I don't give a #### what your company safety guy says. You DO NOT STOP during a situation like this.

    What are they rioting about? They found the dude guilty.

    Guilty of 2nd, 3rd degree murder and man slaughter of the same lifetime criminal.

    I'm not certain how he killed him three different times, but I'm just a trucker.

    And just don't go up there, period. Ever. They'll figure out. Or they won't and they can eat one another.

    Update? Why are they rioting.
    Also I’m curious how can you keep the gladhands from being undone easily? Zip ties don’t work unless I’m doing it wrong.
