    Because the jury did what Maxine waters and sniffy Joe told them to do, or she would make sure the blacks burned and looted half the cities in the country. Again.

    The guy was in stopped traffic, decided to go into opposing traffic, then make a left while pedestrians are in the crosswalk. Guy broke a couple three laws before any confrontation began.

    I see, so you freely admit that they passed up a chance despite the imaginary fact that they're supposedly not going to pass up any chances. Got it.
    :p

    You have a valid point LTL, what you suppose to do in a situation like that?

    First choice is don’t go.
    Second choice is find a detour.
    Third choice is stop at first sign of trouble and call cops.
    Fourth choice, keep enough forward speed to prevent them from getting on truck.
    Fifth choice if you got to this guys scenario is put it in granny low and ease up to that Van then start pushing and grabbing gears. No good answer. Best answer is for the city and local governments to do their job and keep domestic terrorists like these in check. Let em protest, but the minute they impede an innocent bystanders progress they’re wrong

    We must realize there are two sets of rules in America today.
    People are sitting in jail for months charged with trespassing. We don't even know the name of the police officer who shot the unarmed woman at the Capitol
    For us OTR we just drive through the cities and mostly stop on the outskirts.
    Just don't drive through them at knight.

    So the moment I decide that someone is doing something illegal and it is inconveniencing me, I'm allowed to do whatever I want?

    It's a pity they can't engineer a virus that targets laziness and stupidity.
