Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Jared Benjamin Lafer, who last September drove his SUV through a tiny assemblage of Black Lives Matter protesters in Johnson City, Tennessee, and then sped away -- leaving behind a man with a concussion, brain bleed, and two broken legs -- will face no charges.

Why are so many white men scared of black people having equal protection under the law?

I mean, that was false imprisonment, wasn't it?

If he was unable to backup it would probably be false imprisonment.

You might want to read the article if I read it correctly it said that people were crossing the road in the crosswalk which gives them the right of way.

When maga meets outside in TN. Same protection under the law.

Don't play in traffic kids. It doesn't advance your cause.

Federal Justice Dept. needs to file Civil Rights violation charges or any other charges they can. People should not be allowed to avoid consequences just because the Grand Jury was a bunch of racist haters.

Is that what it makes you think?

Looks to me like it got advanced a little more than it would have been.

I probably would have never heard of this particular protest if they hadn't got run over by a hateful Trumper.

The fact that white supremacists keep attacking these folks when they are protesting peacefully makes me think the protesters might have a point. Makes me want to find out why so many white men are so hateful and so afraid of them that they will actually run them over.

But I can clearly see what it makes you think.

Party of Law and Order.

I'm assuming that because someone was filming this and that the confrontation that prompted this was not included the protester wasn't simply some inocent bystander trying to cross the street.

#7 Bring guns to a traffic fight and fire into the fleeing vehicle. That is legal now.

In response to Moder8 #3...

They don't fear them, they fear
them getting protection under the law
so that they can't continue to subjugate
them, and get away (literally) with shooting's all about power and their need
to subjugate someone, to find a scapegoat that
they can bully...

Another good question is, "why do the most
well armed racial contingent in the US (white
conservative males) who (whites, including both sexes)
outnumber blacks by about 7 to 1, and outnumber Latinos
by about 4 to 1, feel such fear at all...

The question I think lies in a misplacement of fear of
losing their jobs to them. They fear what they believe
they economically represent. And I say misplaced, because
the ones they should fear and hate, are not other laborers,
blue collar workers, or white collar competition (depending
on their job) who are all just trying to make it like they
are, but instead the CEO's and the Business heads that continue
(in several areas in the economy) to slash much needed jobs
in favor of further automation and hiring cheaper overseas
labor (overseas).

It's a classic 'blaming the little guy for what the big guy is
doing' scenario. Well, at least for the ones who haven't totally
given in to racist hatred.

You're right. Obviously you would have never heard of BLM if not for this tiny group of protesters playing in the street. It is this incident that will truly get it mainstream. The breakthrough moment is here.

Or you are full of nonsense and know exactly what BLM is about without this protest. Don't play in the street, stupid, and don't block me on 288. Your color and cause doesn't matter when the car hits you going 80.
