First he was black and then he was some kid who hated Trump and now he is a victim of the terrible mob of liberals.

[–] tinyhousesbrah 2 points 9 points (+11|-2) ago 

Seriously. Let's use some metacognition here.

[–] Rainy-Day-Dream 2 points 3 points (+5|-2) ago 

autism is a process and apparently the kid who hated trump sold the car to this guy

I dont know what to believe, Rainy.

[–] MrKequc 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Science does that too. The theory changes based on available data.

You do have an incredibly valid point in that this article's data appears to be two tweets by one guy alleging that the police said that the "suspect was scared." That's not very good data.

It's pretty likely this guy just decided to kill someone. Just because he's probably conservative doesn't make that impossible.

[–] EIMR 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Yeah well, that's what happens when you are still gathering data.

[–] SuperConductiveRabbi 2 points 26 points (+28|-2) ago 

He's going to have to prove that the use of deadly force was warranted. That seems like a hard sell. Smacking his car up isn't going to cut it, especially since he actually killed someone.

Getting attacked with baseball bats all the way down the street would make anyone fear for their life

Pretty good video, but you know damn well there's someone with clear video of his car before the hit but if it showed people hitting his car before he rammed, they would delete / not show that part.

[–] Lemongarb 3 points 11 points (+14|-3) ago 

Looks to me like he plowed into them first.

[–] WhiteRonin 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

Can you do what the driver did?

Straight in and straight out ... Fuck! Nerves of steel.

[–] something_went_wrong 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Where is the video before that moment? I want to see video pre-incident which might explain driver's behavior if they felt threatened, such as protesters at the other end of the alley throwing rocks at the car before driver gunned it down the alley.

[–] ardvarcus 0 points 22 points (+22|-0) ago  (edited ago)

It's the old Reginald Denny argument. As you remember, during the black riots in LA in 1992, Denny stopped his truck to avoid hitting black rioters in the street. They pulled him out of his truck and almost beat him to death. The question is, should Denny have stopped? Or should he have plowed through the rioters in the street with his truck? Most people agree that he should have kept driving.

Nigger riot*

[–] selpai 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

He should have plowed right through. Definitely. It's idiotic, and borderline suicidal, to stop in the middle of a rioting crowd. Something similar happened to my mother, back in her college days. And yes, it was blacks... They smashed her car windows, and she and several female friends barely managed to drive away. I have little doubt that a prolonged stall would have resulted in grievous injury, rape, or death.

[–] ChaoticNeutral 0 points 22 points (+22|-0) ago 

Look up Reginald Denny. Guy was driving a tractor-trailer and refused to run people over. He's lucky he survived. Being surrounded by a mob trying to get into your car would terrify most people.

[–] Volksgemeinschaft 1 points 9 points (+10|-1) ago 

Yeah that was a pack of niggers in south central LA, though. Dude should have known better

[–] something_went_wrong 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago  (edited ago)

Proving use of force, yes. But in that case it might not be such a hard sell provided there is video or eyewitness statement evidence of that one report that someone threw a rock at that car before driver gunned it down that alley. Just one recent case where a driver was not charged for causing injury while trying to escape in his vehicle from a violent altercation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexian_Lien_beating

Exactly. It is the police who failed to maintain order that are at fault.

[–] FreeRebel 2 points 20 points (+22|-2) ago 

A photo shows brake lights. That will work for his defense. Also, the changing of the route. Mob was chanting "This is our street" right before the incident. Blocking the road, committing violence, CAUSING FEAR & CONFUSION. He reacted with FEAR & CONFUSION. He has a case.

[–] Tor1 2 points 19 points (+21|-2) ago  (edited ago)

When you initiate force against someone. Being killed is possible. Was this woman a violent leftist protestor or not? Antifa trapped him and threw bricks rocks at him.

You have the right to self defense.

This isn't US law.

But it is the correct natural law.

Assuming this guy (leftist, rightist, agnostic) was just out driving and minding his own business.

He absolutely has the right to do what he feels is necessary to get out of a dangerous situation.

The protestors have a beef with Charlottesville city. Who failed to maintain a safe event. One that was permitted and completely within UTR's natural rights to enjoy.

There is a lot of false narratives being spun out there.

But that is the simple truth of the matter.

[–] 22jam22 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Natural law means shit in our court sytem. I lost a self defense case two jurors said i was right and they would have done the same thing.. To my lawyer after the trial when they go talk to them.. They said the wording of the charges and the judge made them feel preasured into finding me guilty.

[–] Tor1 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago  (edited ago)

LOL at the words "our court system."

The oppressive kangaroo courts that serve the interests of a global elite are well described here on Voat.

But they certainly are not "our" courts.

Not anymore than livestock would agree that slaughterhouses are "their" institutions where they provide the greatest value to the world.

Natural law is what should be the case. It is something to strive towards. An ideal that would finally make the world a decent human place once again.

[–] MicksElplix 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

I've seen several different angles of this event and the only time I've ever seen anyone throw anything, or jump onto or hit this vehicle with anything was AFTER he threw the car into reverse and was backing away.

[–] Zanbato 6 points 15 points (+21|-6) ago 

nah, i saw the video lol. He rammed those people on purpose

[–] WhiteRonin 2 points 8 points (+10|-2) ago 

This. This was in then out ... Totally knew what he was doing.

[–] Ex-Redditor [S] 2 points 6 points (+8|-2) ago 

I agree with you. He had plenty of time to stop. Plus the R is for reverse (if he wanted to get away). not racing.

[–] SexMachine 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

"Stopped, put it in reverse, looked back to make sure no one was behind me, and then I floored it. Oops, forgot to change gears."

[–] MicksElplix 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

Agree. So sad.

[–] Bemorelikelebowski 3 points -2 points (+1|-3) ago 

Yep abso-fucking-lutely he did. He has plenty of room to stop. The other cars were stopped. Hell, he could have even turned on one of the streets he passed.

Bemorelikelebowski

You just made a user account to shill your deceitful spiel on this incident. The dude got attacked all the way down the street by a group of violent protesters. People from groups that have injured, maimed and murdered before and whose violence is sanctioned by Democrat controlled police.

Maybe he did it as a planned attack, but stop lying about the fact that people were attacking the car while he was driving normally.

The shills are working HARD to frame all news around Charlottesville according to their interests. When the shills are out in full force on Voat, that's when you know the media machine is throwing everything it can at an issue.

Fuck you, bemorelikelebowski you piece of organic waste.

[–] CrownRoyale 1 points 12 points (+13|-1) ago 

Serious fucking retarded dick gobblers in this thread..

THEY HAD BATS AND WEAPONS! THEY ARE A HUGE MOB! I highly doubt they were waving at him peacefully letting him drive through.

You fucking niggers upvoting the people defending the antifaggots really make me think...

I would have gladly run these people over had I felt threatened. You want to protest? Ok. Do so without weapons and everything is fine. Do so without blocking streets and traffic. Do so with a clear message. THEY HAD NONE OF THIS.

Fuck anyone who defends the roadkill here.

[–] Niggertown 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago  (edited ago)

The police don't keep the peace and then this happens. It's absolutely insane.

As far as I am concerned justice in this country is now non-existent.

That's bad news for these leftists
