Yeah, that'll help calm things down

Not to start any more arguments on the subject, but I thought it interesting that the LAPD statement here is that the Prius driver tried to "drive around" the protest. While the pickup driver in the LAPD statement (video is in another Twitchy article)  likely was arguing with protestors or otherwise exasperating the situation, what I'm getting out of the LAPD statement is that the Prius driver was an example of someone unaware/accidentally driving into the situation and then reacting out of fear. So while likely making some mistakes that got them into the situation, I'm not sure I can otherwise fault that driver for how he/she got out of the situation.

Holy crap.  I mean it's LA so you expect stuidity, but yeah, if they chase you down, block your car, and "attempt to extract" you from your vehicle I think it's probably time to flip the switch and start violence.  Hope you have evidence of you trying to get away without hurting anyone. Dashcam with audio might be handy.

Feds maybe?

That was my first thought.  One aircraft was an old DC-9, the other a smaller biz jet.  Who would want to go to Louisville right now if they didn't have to.

Wrong.

At that point, the violence has already started.  You have to decide how you will respond to it.

I meant YOU should start violence, as opposed to the restraint I was urging earlier in the thread.

I got the impression the video was from a news helo or similar. If so, that would be pretty good unbiased evidence. But yeah, it sure is a good reason to run a dashcam these days.

Why in the hell do any of the cops in the libtard controlled cities stay?
(yeah, I know, they need a paycheck same as the rest of us but damn....)

It would fill me with schadenfreude and joy to see an entire large metro area that has been inundated with antifa and blm and then told to play nice with them by their city government to see the entire police force just quit en mass with middle fingers raised to the sky

Unless there is a new movement protesting the lack of structural integrity endemic among patio furniture,  those aren't protesters, those are vandals.

As an aside, I firmly believe in the appropriateness of peaceably assembling to petition the government.  As a 2A advocate I acknowledge that sometimes you need to threaten (or actually use) force to make the government change it's behavior.  But those two things are not the same action, and I am really trying to put some sanity back in my language.  Protester=/=revolutionary =/= rioter. All three can be in the same crowd, but an individual can't be more than one at a time.

 Face Palm!   If bridgewriters ever managed to learn real history they might find out how many millions were killed by socialism/communism.  angry

Exactly. The wrong people were in charge.

This time will be different. The right people will be in charge.

Meanwhile at 2nd and Broadway

Louisville Metro Police Department
 
31m  ·
Just before 8 p.m., protestors from Jefferson Square began marching down 6th Street toward Broadway. While at the intersection, they blocked traffic, including several TARC buses, in both directions for several minutes. The group then proceeded down Broadway to the intersection at 2nd Street. While in the intersection, a confrontation took place between a motorist and several protestors. Soon after, a 911 call came in from the motorist describing an assault. Protestors continued to march and LMPD officers responded. Four people were arrested, including one who is charged assault from the confrontation. A short time later, a fifth arrest was made of a person who was described as pointing a weapon at the victim of the assault. #LMPD
