You are reading page 2 of Out of bounds protesting. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

The protesters in Lansing blocked entrance to the ambulance entrance at the hospital closest to the capital building.  And they brought their guns.  AND, it wasn't for a noble cause.  It was because they have the anger-management skills of a 4 year old and no ability to see the big picture.  Fortunately, That Woman has been adamant about piecemeal opening and so far it has been successful.  I don't want anyone to have to experience unemployment again because a minority of the population wants to reopen everything at once.  Of course our cases are rising but nothing threatening to the hospital systems or the lives of the staff who work there.

I included three in the first post, are you referring to there being no examples other than those?

The Bloomington example you provided, is also not an "ambush."

Here is what I consider the definition of an "ambush" to be: Reginald Denny. He was pulled from his truck by protesters, and beaten senseless in LA, in 1991.

Again, I have yet to read about BLM protesters pulling folks from vehicles and beating them.

The examples you provided, and that I provided, are of inconvenienced folks acting out violating.

That should never be tolerated.

Btw- I stop for ducks and Canada geese blocking roads, and stray dogs and even a cow, on two different occassions!

An inconvenience, to be sure. But one that is worthwhile and what empathetic human beings do.

The driver wasn't threatened. The driver intentionally drove through and area that was blocked.

That is NOT an ambush.

I didn't read your other examples.

Perhaps they are more of the same, such as insisting MLK didn't block roads, when I can see lanes of travel blocked, in your example.

Again, no drivers ambushed or threatened by blocked roads in KY.

But protesters have been threatened.

In Lexington, a driver who brandished a gun at protesters was arrested.

A little inconvenience, to make the masses uncomfortable with police killings.

 

 

 

 

You're correct that the first example (Seattle) was of poor decision making by loitering around on an active interstate at 2 in the morning, not of violent behavior by protestors.  As the for the other two it might make more sense if you actually looked at them before deeming them invalid examples.

Here's another example:

So it only counts if they are actually pulled from the vehicles and beaten, but not if they're shot while still in the vehicle?

Geese and cows don't throw things at your car, jump on your hood, or shoot at you.

Who was shot at by a protester?

Not your Seattle or Bloomington examples?

No one in KY.

Who?

You obviously have never driven down a one lane KY road at 0345, in the dark, and faced a cow!

It will kill you!

I was lucky to be alert from watching for deer, because this cow would have killed me, easily.

Then why did you use Seattle example to falsely bolster your "ambush" argument?

The Seattle example was linked to the original post, which didn't reference any "ambush" argument, the exact quote was that "blocking roads or even interstate highways" is "unwise", which the Seattle incident is an example of, that seemed pretty clear to be honest.
