Watch: Police Car Plows Through Swarming Mob as Protesters Cling to Hood [Video]


Watch: Police Car Plows Through Swarming Mob as Protesters Cling to Hood [Video]

Opinion| Mark Sidney|  I think it is high time that we have a discussion in this country about what a ‘peaceful protest’ is and what a ‘peaceful protest’ is NOT.  As an example, holding a sign in a group, on a sidewalk, in a park or another public place designed for pedestrians is a good indication you are a peaceful protester.  Being polite and not throwing bottles, rocks, urine and animal or human poop and everything in that spectrum up to shooting guns at anyone are also signs of a peaceful protest.

On the other hand, if you find yourself in the middle of the street, jumping on cars, banging on windows, threatening to burn down the entire system if you do not have your demands met …. yeaaaaaa, that’s NOT a peaceful protest.

One more thing, do not let this confuse you: you are entitled to protest PEACEFULLY.  Violent demonstrations are not protests, and often then turn in riots.  Looting is a time honored tradition of a riot.

As for these clips, I am not quite sure who thinks they can jump on a police car, swarm around it, and believe that they are the victim when the cop driving the car tries to escape with his life.   Take a look at these videos and let me know what you think:

Detroit News reported: 

‘Police Chief James Craig said the officer who drove a police vehicle through a crowd of protesters Sunday night did so because the officer thought “they were being fired upon.”…

…The protest started out peacefully with about 350 people in Southwest Detroit calling for immigrant rights and an end to police brutality coming together. However, around 9:30 p.m., a police SUV tried to re-direct the march toward Dix Road and away from Vernor Highway, to avoid high amounts of traffic.

Craig said the protesters did not want to follow the direction of the police, and 20 to 30 of them began surrounding the SUV.

You can read the  complete report at The Detroit News.

UPDATE: Dash cam videos:

What would you have done if you were the officer in this car?  Do you think he handled the situation properly?  It’s hard to feel badly for these aggressors after the cop begins to hit the gas after being in fear that his safety is in danger.  Again, by all means go out an protest, do your thing, however, DO NOT RIOT or INITIATE VIOLENCE …. that’s not protesting, that is being a criminal
