A truck drove into a group of pro-choice protesters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Friday, leading to at least one woman being hospitalized. The group of mostly women protesters was demonstrating against the landmark Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade when an unidentified man driving a black Ford truck drove into them.

Just some more "legitimate political discourse" from them "tourists" again.

Yep. Just like that schittbag that ran over all the old ladies at the parade in Wisconsin, Right? Oh, wait....

This guy?

Brooks was charged Tuesday with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the parade incident, court documents show. Prosecutors said they will consider a sixth homicide charge after saying in court that a child had died. www.cnn.com

What are you waiting for, exactly?

"Wisconsin senators Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson released a joint statement, asking people to avoid using the event for political purposes." en.wikipedia.org

Oh, wait...

Yup. Were you expecting something different?

Has anyone actually defended that guy?

Where are the Lesbian Avengers when needed? They would have pulled the guy out of the vehicle, kicked him into next Tuesday and set his truck on fire. Of course, they then would all have been arrested and the guy let go, because, well, he's a guy victimized by some Lesbians...

Lesson here. If someone is driving a truck and wants to get from one end of the street to another don't get in front of them. Pretty basic. I'm sure the driver couldn't give a rats ass about R vs W.

Pedestrians have the right of way
It's the law

Pedestrians have the right of way
It's the law

A commonly held misconception, but it's actually not accurate. No one has right of way until it's given. In most cases, other than at a designated crosswalk, pedestrian lane, or other area designated for pedestrian use, generally a pedestrian must yield right of way to a vehicle traveling on the roadway. Specifics vary state by state.

In my state, for example;

1. Every pedestrian crossing a roadway at any point other than within a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection shall yield the right of way to all vehicles upon the roadway.

2. Any pedestrian crossing a roadway at a point where a pedestrian tunnel or overhead pedestrian crossing has been provided shall yield the right of way to all vehicles upon the roadway.

3. Between adjacent intersections at which traffic-control devices are in operation, pedestrians may not cross at any place except in a marked crosswalk.

4. No pedestrian may cross a roadway intersection diagonally unless authorized by official traffic-control devices; and, when authorized to cross diagonally, pedestrians shall cross only in accordance with the official traffic-control devices pertaining to such crossing movements.

Note this does not exclude drivers from the responsibility to exercise due care and caution and make every reasonable attempt to avoid a collision.

These Black truck drivers should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

It would be nice if we had more than 5 seconds of video.

#18 there is absolutely no context to this video... one internet sleuth did have a still frame frame the very beginning that showed the crossing signal was a red hand... so there's that.

as long as the law, and the GOP, continue to look away,
this will continue to get worse...

Yes, I'd like to see what happened in the 10 seconds preceeding the start of the video

Wow, once again Liberals have outdone themselves. All the violence and threats against the side they disagree with are being completely ignored while the very few instances of the other side causing violence becomes their proof that Cons are bad. I mean, they are but no worse than Libs...which is now proven beyond any doubt after the reaction to this ruling.
