At least it wasn't intentional. Accidents can be forgiven.
Whoever thought it was a good idea to put someone with leg problems in the driver's seat oth...

I'm glad it turned out to bony be maliciously motivated... Still, sorry to the people involved. =<

Local news reported the driver and the person he hit were both members of a gay men's choir

The victim is no less dead, but I feel better knowing it wasn't a hate crime.

I know it's human, but still is making me stare into the distance for a bit

Wait, I was assured yesterday that this was done by a coal-rolling Klansman sent by Desantis and Trump themselves.

I don't think Klansmen or anybody really listens to Trump now that he's gone back to being a loser.
Desantis would make more sense. He does send coal-rolling Klansmen to do stuff.

Still the same problem - Florida and many other Republican controlled states tried to make this legal. Meaning instead of trying to figure out if it's terrorism or an accident, we'd also have to figure out if it was intentional but justified by law.

Drivers licenses need to be granted/renewed on a bell curve. Once you hit age 60 or so, you're back on the downhill side and need to start jumping through all the written/vision/field testing that teenagers have to go through... every three or so years.

If he can't afford a new car pay off the mechanic to diagnose a very expensive repair. Worked with my grandma, my father on the other hand went tire shopping and came back with a new convertible. No he was not taken advantage of, he just said if not now when and bought the convertible he always wanted

I arrived at work one morning to see an ambulance loading an old man; cops were all over. Turned out the guy was confused and thought he was on the highway. He crashed head-on into a cement wall outside our office building, which is at the end of a dead end street. The car was quite farked, but he looked to be conscious and alert.

Man, that thread was a farking dumpster fire between people like me that jump to conclusions, and people that clutched pearls all like "what precedent do you have to assume that conservatives would try and run over high profile democrats at a pride event! Maybe wait for the facts?!"

Gotta love the edgelord brigade laughing at this.

News flash, kiddies - people had every reason to suspect an intentional attack. Protestors and people in marches have been intentionally hit by vehicles multiple times over the past year, and many states (including Florida) are trying to give legal protection to the driver in these situations, and Pride events are targets of hate for the same groups that hate BLM.

Some people assumed the worst. They were wrong. It was an understandable error. If you're laughing, you're just ignorant of what life is like for people under threat because of who** they are.

it's ridiculous how 'murica lets millions of nervous, scared, age impaired drivers run amuck. when my mom retired she took to day drinking. her eye glass prescription was years overdue for update. she would have card games at her house in the afternoon, bunch of little old ladies getting plastered in blender mix drinks, then mom would make the rounds dropping the ladies off. when a local cop caught her drunk with her car up on someone's lawn he too her driver license from her on the spot and she never drove again. she had 3 adult children a phone call away willing and able to drive her but she had to be in charge.

While a hate crime would have been a horror, there is a cruel tragedy in realizing that you accidentally killed people who were celebrating with you, on a day intended to celebrate your identity.

Acceptance of LGBTQ people is relatively new and if you trace acceptance, just 30 years ago, most people were against gay rights and considered their  sexuality immoral. As a 77 years old, he has likely experienced life when acceptance was not even considered a possibility, and coming out meant risking violence. I wonder then, if pride means something more to older gay men and women and if so, if this is even more devastating to him because of that.

Heartbreaking, really.

They're probably also those "farky" people. If you said "maybe it was just an accident" in any of the earlier threads, they probably farkied you as a Trumper and will follow you around fark for years accusing you of being one because you didn't agree with their knee-jerk reaction to something that happened.

Come on. This is inherently a ridiculous sequence, when the bar for being racist/a bigot(not even sure why they used that particular language) is being stated as "you thought this one thing that resembled other bad things might possibly be that thing, therefore you're a bigot."

It's pure shiate-stirring.
