Stop calling them protestors. If you stand in the middle of the road, blocking traffic, you're not just inconveniencing cars on that road. You're blocking a public right of way, taking their occupants prisoner, trying to intimidate and threaten people. That's not a protest, it's a violent act and several different crimes.

trying to intimidate and threaten people

For political purposes. That's called "terrorism".

Funny story. A while back my cousin was heading to work. She crossed over an ice covered bridge, lost control and spun into a ditch. A cop came by and started writing her a citation. She asked why, telling him it was an accident. He told her it was for failing to maintain control of her vehicle.

While this discussion was going on, another car came over the bridge, lost control and slammed into the police cruiser. Another 'failure to control' citation ensued.

Your cousin should have fought the citation and then sued the city for failing to maintain the bridge.

The only way to keep these cocksuckers in check is to remind them that there is consequences for tyranny.

Really? If truth it sounds like someone was has been given specific instructions to do that. Almost as if the people that give them orders profit from an increased amount of tickets.

It's a liability statute. It provides immunity against civil liability for negligently plowing through a group of "protesters". Unfortunately, recklessly or intentionally killing a protester would still be frowned upon.

I've seen protesters intentionally block an ambulance that had its lights and siren on. There is no excuse for this ignorant behavior.

I've seen non-prtoestors do it. They see us coming, go along the crosswalk anyway, walk even slower and try to stare us down.

Are people really this...evil for lack of a better phrase?

I would pay more in taxes for a massive brush guard on the front of every amberlamp so you could run these fucks over with impunity.

North Dakota Bill Would Protect Drivers Who 'Accidentally' Hit And Kill Protesters | The Huffington Post

'Keith Kempenich introduced would exempt drivers from liability if they accidentally hit a pedestrian, according to the Bismarck Tribune. '

'Republican lawmakers in North Dakota are taking aim at protesters with a handful of bills that would make another pipeline protest far more dangerous. '

'House Bill 1203 was written up in direct response to groups of protesters blocking roadways, Kempenich told the paper. '

'Other new bills would be a thorn in the side of protesters and the federal government. '

'A bill that state GOP Rep. '

The Huffington Post is corrupt and should be archived in the OP. It doesn't deserve our support. Please keep this in mind for future posts.

If you stand in the middle of the road blocking traffic, you aren't a protestor anymore, you're a criminal. Those are public roads and people paid taxes to use them. You are robbing people of their right to use the road they are legally entitled to.

If you get hit and killed while committing this crime, it's your own damn fault.

"Bought the rusty bus" sounds like a disgusting sexual euphemism.
