    This drivers situational awareness was less than zero.

    Was he not aware that the case had gone to the jury?

    and that mobs of urban
    Liberals would be itching to have another riot and burn buildings?

    they are not going to pass up any chances to loot free stuff and burn buildings.

    there’s no way I would have driven anywhere near Minneapolis nor any other major city.
    I’ve made sure my baby glock is in my pocket all week. And avoided any big cities .

    The only mistake the demonstrators made in DC was lack of flamethrowers.

    Seems like there are two of these threads on here. However, (like I stated in the other one) 'The Driver seemed to be extremely late for his p&d because he made a left around the stopped traffic waiting for the left light as the crowd of protesters were making their way through the same intersection. His video shows more detail of what occurred the driver warned the crowd to move out of the way and he slowed down so I don't believe his intent was to harm anyone. However, being a trucker we all know that once you make a turn onto a street its easier to keep driving straight oppose to backing up even in this situation espeically if you're late with a load so he kept it moving. However, as a Professional driver he should of used his Google maps and realized that the area was blocked and surrounded with protesters and that's where his argument with his dispatch & managers and possibly company owners is going to get heated!

    10Roads hauls a lot of mail. He may not have had a choice to go. Everyone of those idiot rioters is impeding interstate commerce and the US Mail. Felony level offense.
