  1. Do they have a permit to be laying in the street? The law cannot budge an inch or it’s not law & order.

  2. If you are in the street. And preventing people from going home, to their families, from work, you deserve to be ran over.

  3. Barney style roads are for cars side walks are for people Common sense will take you far.

  4. You lay on the street, block traffic and hang onto cars then you should be crushed. It is due to your own stupidity.
    Tired of this!

  5. Peacefully protest does not mean physically attack the opposing side. Clearly these rioters are in the wrong here. If a driver is being attacked by a mob of rioters, the driver has every right to protect themselves.

  6. Impulse control is often an issue with this group. Lack of impulse control is often what leads to their initial contact with law enforcement.
