Son of Thunder: "Send more cops."
Salmon: Seeing that it's a civic, was probably an ornamental.
NateAsbestos: [i.dailymail.co.uk image 634x597]Is this a Zapruder film?
SubBass49: THIS video shows just what a DICKHEAD the driver was...
DubtodaIll: SubBass49: THIS video shows just what a DICKHEAD the driver was...That's attempted vehicular manslaughter.
RogermcAllen: SubBass49: THIS video shows just what a DICKHEAD the driver was...On one hand the video clearly shows a lady giving the driver the business while a fat guy sits on the hood (nothing out of the ordinary when driving around downtown). Driver floors it and the fat guy punches the windshield as he falls off. Driver runs over the girl. The driver is clearly in the wrong.On the other hand the video clearly shows the driver coming to a complete stop at the intersection. The crowd turns on him with shouts of "Tackle him!. Flip that car! Flip that car!". Fearing for the safety of his children, he hits the gas and narrowly escapes a life threatening situation.
Tourney3p0: That's a pretty sad zombie walk. But then again, it's no longer 2007. People still putting forth an effort toward zombie walks should be ashamed.I'm torn on this.
Begoggle: LOL at all the people defending the driver in the comments.
SubBass49: Read eye-witness accounts...apparently the guy was deaf, got upset that his kids were afraid of the zombies, and started to lean on his horn while driving INTO the crowd. People started banging on his car to get him to stop, as there were babies in strollers and other vulnerable people taking part who could be run down. When the people started banging on his car, the asshole floored it and ground the skin off the old lady's arm (down to the bone). He's a farking entitled douchebag that deserves to have charges filed./don't farking drive in downtown San Diego during Comic Con if you can't be patient//Check that...don't farking drive in downtown San Diego during EVER if you can't be patient...it's ALWAYS a madhouse
Begoggle: SubBass49: THIS video shows just what a DICKHEAD the driver was...LOL at all the people defending the driver in the comments. What the fark. Fark is actually a sane place compared to some comment sections.
Enemabag Jones: This is comicon, and he just might have been a big enough jerk and attracted enough attention to get to get some special attention of an internet based revenge group. Even if the police like the driver as some of the articles may suggest.
TWX: Heh. I feel for the paramedics, must've been fum trying to sort out the victims from the rest of the crowd...
namatad: pretty sure it is legal to shoot zombie in the brains/I hate these people as much as the illegal bike assholes - so what if we shut down traffic in a city, we ROCK!!!
TheGogmagog: namatad: pretty sure it is legal to shoot zombie in the brains/I hate these people as much as the illegal bike assholes - so what if we shut down traffic in a city, we ROCK!!!Parades? It's not completely clear by the article (surprise), but it seemed to be a licensed/permitted parade. Would you feel the same if it was a NRA and Veteran parade?/I could see hating parades, but you could drive around or wait the half hour it takes to pass.//the 'spontaneous' formations that block traffic are uncalled for.They say the streets were not shut down for the "Zombie Walk" because the group did not have a permit.
Ker_Thwap: Did they have a parade permit? If so, then the driver was at fault.No parade permit, and the resultant police presence, proper crowd control, and such, then I can empathize with this driver.According to the article, the police blamed the driver, so I suppose that's that.
Moonstone: It may come as a surprise, but not everyone is aware of SDCC. They may not have known what they drove into.
Ker_Thwap: If so, then the driver was at fault.
Mentalpatient87: Moonstone: It may come as a surprise, but not everyone is aware of SDCC. They may not have known what they drove into.I thought I read somewhere that the driver and his family were leaving after attending the con. So yeah, if that's true, they knew precisely.Ker_Thwap: If so, then the driver was at fault.The driver was at fault regardless. You can't just try to wedge your car through a huge crowd of people at a crosswalk no matter what.
Ker_Thwap: I said I could empathize with him.
Ker_Thwap: It's the difference between a mob blocking a street, because they're a mob and will do what they please because fark you... and a venue that took the proper steps to ensure that everyone's safety and convenience is being considered.
