Washington protesters hit by car, no visible injuries: police (ticketed for obstructing traffic)
Yahoo ^ | 11/5/11 | Eric Johnson in Chicago - Reuters

Posted on 11/05/2011 10:46:20 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

(Reuters) - Three activists protesting economic inequality were struck by a car and mildly injured late on Friday night as they attempted to block traffic near a gathering of conservatives in the nation's capital, police said on Saturday.

The protesters, who were transported to area hospitals with no signs of visible injury, were cited for obstructing traffic late on Friday night, said Araz Alali, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Department.

"The driver saw he had the green light and the protesters then basically jumped in front of the vehicle to block traffic," Alali said. "It appears that the protesters jumped into the path of the vehicle."

Angry protesters circled the vehicle after it struck the protesters, police said. The driver was not cited.

The incident occurred on Friday as hundreds of protesters affiliated with the "Occupy DC" movement gathered near a convention center in Washington, D.C. where the conservative "Defending the American Dream Summit" was being held.

If the OWS mob surrounds a vehicle in a threatening manner, the driver is justified in driving away over however many of the demonstrators as necessary to getaway.

My elderly parents were there last night and were being prevented from leaving the building. The occupy DC robots were trying to get themselves arrested and daring the police to arrest them. They blocked the exits and refused to let people out. My parents (both in their 70’s) along with several other attendees pushed their way out of the center and broke through the demonstrators.

There is some video of the “protesters” surrounding the car that allegedly ran over them. Thankfully the car did not appear to be damaged. Nice silver Lexus. The police allowed the driver to leave while the robots were chanting and whining.

There is also video of a woman trying to use her toddler to block a door while the police were trying to close it and keep the protesters out of the building. They are using babies as human shields.

Obama owns this crowd and it’s not going to end pretty. They are itching for a confrontation. They are professional protesters and anarchists and are trying to create a disaster that they can catch on camera. Watch any of the videos and you see that most of the protesters are carrying cameras to try to record the trouble they create.

Can you imagine how horrible you’d feel if you hit someone? Yet, these moochers and mentally ill want to cause others such grief. I’ve had bums try to get hit on the city streets, and Omen-like kids on the reservation try to get hit on the highway.

Indeed. Rachael Corrie is not quite a cause célèbre years after her suicide-by-bulldozer, but she certainly is revered as a martyr in the usual circles -- look for more of these kinds of incidents.

If I struck a human, I'd feel horrible. I've felt bad when I hit the errant squirrel or a raccoon. But if I hit one of these useless idiots, I don't I'd feel much sorrow. On the hierarchy of life forms, they are closer to the amoeba than anything else.

Reminds me of radical Muslims, who see the death of their own as a helpful way to promote their cause. And so they facilitate the deaths of their own.

LOL, good point. I’ve seen the “critical mass” demonstrations in SF. Luckily, I was walking and in no rush, but they wouldn’t let ANY cars through. It’s like a few thousand zombies walking/biking.

I’d not feel horrible at all. If you wish to be hit, and you pick me to do it, why would I care? An ugly job, but I guess somebody has to do it.

Actually, I’d have to check the front differential on the F350, as blood rusts metal to beat all hell. Oh well, it’s only been through a car wash once in four years, so perhaps it is time.

I've hit someone with a car and I've been hit by a car.

All things considered, given a choice, I'd much rather be the one doing the hitting than the one being hit.

Getting hit by a car hurts.

Yeah. I’m sure someone got on a Bulldozer that day and drove around just looking for someone to run over. /s
Nope. Corrie went looking for a Bulldozer to stand in front of. She messed with the bull (dozer), she got the horns.
Hmmmmm... that reminds me, I haven’t had pancakes in a while. Think I’ll go fix myself a stack....

I watched the video of the protesters trying to get the police to arrest the driver. They should try jumping in front of a Virginian. There would be three dead protesters.

Michelle Fields, a video reporter for the Daily Caller, said she was stalked for three hours Friday while attempting to cover protests outside the Americans for Prosperity “Defending the American Dream Summit” at the Washington Convention Center.

Fields said she “did not feel comfortable, because at one point there were a whole group of men surrounding me saying, ‘F-Michelle Fields.’  And I went to a police officer and I told him that I felt these people were harassing me. And the police officer said he’d take care of it, but it never ended. These people were harassing me for the entire evening.”

One of the anti-capitalist “Occupy DC” protesters was evidently assigned to monitor Fields and her video camerawoman, following the Daily Caller crew to harass and heckle them. Fields said the protesters shouted “You’re worse than Fox” and “right-wing extremists,” called her “ugly” and made remarks about her clothing. When she attempted to conduct interviews, Fields said, “an individual would jump in front of the camera and stop the interview, or block it with a piece of paper or cardboard. . . . they talked to people who were part of Occupy DC and told them not to talk to us.”

Murdered by ISM.

BTW, if you know how orchestrated it was (think Paliwood), you’d know they sacrificed her... and I don’t think she had a clue they would.

That’s going to happen here too; Many Islamic groups are involved now. The wanna-be socialists like to stage and pretend... these guys will set them up for real killing to further any cause that helps them.

Hello,

I am reporting from lovely Fenton MO. This afternoon I spotted the following:

1) Three young people, looking very grungy, holding signs. I could only read one and it supported Ron Paul.

2) Two even even more grungy young men, holding Occupy Fenton signs.

Now, if you are familiar with Fenton, you will
understand why I laughed so hard I nearly drove off the road.

I guess our little quiet town is now on the map...

:)

It is against the laws in this state(FL.) and many others, Nuisance .
I am switching to a small European horn from a junk car next week. I have a choice of five and probably will go with the most ANNOYING beep-beep! Could also add an “Ooga-Ooga horn.
I have a 3500 SILVERADO CREW CAB with the long bed and topper shell!
I love annoying annoying Drivers! It’s a lot like annoying annoying demo rats and some annoying Freepers.
