It's pretty hard to unintentionally back up and gain more room to accelerate.

Why won't anyone say radical white male conservative terrorism?

He should have waited until the state passed the "make it legal to run over liberals" law.  Unless this is going to put a hold on it?

blastoh: Why won't anyone say radical white male conservative terrorism?


Because there are many, many people who don't want to face the fact that their racist, hate filled political movement is causing actual death and terror.

Because it's Konservative Kaucasian Khristian terrorism.

Especially since the road he was on is pretty much a single lane.  I know, I live in Charlottesville and have used that road to get to the Water Street garage.

Here's a pretty clear video of the guy driving down the street into the crowd, then back through them again.
You can see it's intentional.

WOW. Helicopter crash is announced as 'linked' to the protests.

My guess is someone either shot the pilot or the bird. It's unfortunately exactly where my head went when I first thought about it.

feckingmorons: The term "intentional homicide" is not in that article. The term intentional is, and the term homicide is, but the phrase you used in the head line is not.

Again, we need to let the investigation finish before we draw conclusions, but of course I'll be demonized for saying that.


I remember when you expressed the same opinion about emails and Benghazi.

Yeah, I used to live on that street. It's a crossover for the pedestrian mall. Low speed, lots of speed bumps - big ones (like "supercars get stuck on them" big. Which is funny to see).

It could be as simple as the helicopter was in the air specifically to address the protests.  Sort of a "cop rolls his vehicle during a police chase" situation.

Any greater link gets into terrifying areas.

"Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said a 32-year-old woman was killed and the suspect vehicle which fled was found moments later and a male driver was arrested. Thomas said the nine people hurt had injuries ranging from life threatening to minor. "

"Thomas said the hit-and-run is being treated as a case of criminal homicide. "

He can join the Dylan Roof Club. Roof was the turning point for getting rid of the Stars and Bars. This "hero" can take credit for getting Bobby Lee, who my friends say was a social climber, and his statues taken down all over.

of course it is, why else would it be fling around Charlottesville

Where I live criminal homicide includes acts ranging from accidentally hitting the wrong pedal to nuking the site from orbit.

It may be that it was just observing the rally, though. I know I have a history of being wildly overcautious about things. I hope this is one of those rare occasions where my caution is borne out.

If it was described as "premeditated" then he means murder one, or close to that. I was just going by the article.

You know shiat like this is why I have sympathy for moderate conservatives, and I'm liberal.

fark off with the generalizations, unless you want me to call you a socialist.  You're spinning the rhetoric so bad it's what deviating from constructive political discourse and just creating more bipartisan hatred.

It must have been the water bottle armed antifa and not the AR-15 armed patriots.

I agree, and hope it's not a stronger connection, but it'd be some timing if it just happened to crash.

Serious Black: It's pretty hard to unintentionally back up and gain more room to accelerate.


You'd think so, but I've seen social media flooded with people either claiming the driver did it on accident while attempting to escape violence from antifa counter-protestors or that the arrested man is unrelated and that the actual driver of the car was an anti-Trump liberal teen who just purchased the car recently (with supposed Facebook screengrabs of the car with "look what I just got for my 16th birthday!")

I am probably enough of a klutz to pull that off. I would not flee the scene afterward, however.

They've since doxxed a registered Republican as the "real" driver. Given the track record of Internet Detectives.......

Yeah, all those "it's legal to run over protesters" laws that states have been trying to pass. . .might this put a stop to that?

Do we need a badge for this thread, because I think there may be many more threads about things worse than this coming up real soon.  Maybe just a "I survived 2017" badge, if we're lucky enough.

I believe that the current narrative is that he is an anti-Trump protester with a history of drug smuggling (based upon the same quality of Internet investigation than led to a certain infamous New York Post cover).
 
2017-08-12 07:33:37 PM  
That was a deplorable thing to do.
 
2017-08-12 07:33:45 PM  
On a somewhat related note: It seems to me that paying any attention to these white supremacists is just giving them what they want.  They are like a 3 year old throwing a temper tantrum.  Just ignore them until they realize they aren't getting what they want and give up.
