Yes yes. Defund the police, no cash bail. What could possibly go wrong.
How can you complain when you get EXACTLY what you wish for! Keep wishing! Let all the prisoners out, let the lunatics run the asylum, go for it! I’ve just been WOKE, more crime, yay!
The future of “our” country. And you think it is bad now…just wait until “their” leaders are formally in charge. Really scary stuff.
It got me thinking (not suggesting in any way, shape, or form). I’ve seen videos and read articles about how many people panic and hit the wrong pedal. What would happen legally in such a case. BMW unintentionally harms (or worse) a bunch of these people (used loosely). Does he go to jail? For ever? Worse? Do they ding him on not being in control of his vehicle?
It really is getting scary. I’m glad that I’m nowhere near the north east or the left coast.
The driver would get charged with vehicular assault, and the “peaceful protesters” would be celebrated as national heroes!
Something similar happened in Los Angeles, CA recently.
I find myself echoing Ted Cruz. These people are lucky they’re not Jews, or de Blasio would lock them so deep in prison you’d have to feed them with a trebuchet.
Where’s Snake Plisskin when you need him?
Thought we had already been doing that for years…
They surrounded the vehicle… they were attacking the vehicle… some could argue a good case of self defense… a belief that they were in imminent danger of life or bodily harm…
Especially when they slammed the bike on the car.
Insane. What can you legally do in such a situation?
Did anyone notice the same group attacked a taxicab some time later.I think “wilding” is the term for this kind of behavior?
You either die in the car or die on the witness stand, your choice in a no win situation, Kobayashi Maru!
Don’t live in NYC. Seriously, there are a few municipalities in this country, where not only local government is pro-crime, but also the population is pro-crime. NYC has a long tradition of this, going back to the jury that found Bernie Goetz liable for injury to a thug.
Gascon is the new LA county DA, he thought it would be a cake walk as it was in San Francisco. He’s already reversed some of his policies he just fired off, as he’s been lit up with criticism from both outside and within from deputy DAs.
It will be interesting, Kevin “ghost gun” Leon is now on the LA city council as well.
A couple years ago, there was another incident in NYC between a family in a Land Raider and motorcyclists.
I recall that one of the riders got hit by the SUV and the father got pulled out of the car and was severely beaten.
If this starts happening more, its going to become a regular occurrence.
I am like Captain James T. Kirk… I do not believe in a Kobayashi Maru… a no win situation…
I call it terrorism
I’ve never been to Brazil so I can’t speak from personal experience. That said, I remember a coworker who went there to visit in-laws and I remember him talking about keeping an eye out for suspicious cars and getting kidnap insurance. I didn’t even know kidnap insurance was a thing.
I dont know about Brazil, but Giuliani and Bloomberg didnt allow this nonsense. Stop and frisk, arrest for minor crimes (for real, no 0 bail), police monitoring task force for potential terrorists, etc. How those “human rights” and “social justice” activists howled and whined!
My friend from NYC estimates a decade for things to get back to decency.
