I don't care who you are or whether I support your cause or not. If I were in the same position, I'da run your ass over too. All the asshole had to do was move. The minute he started slamming on the car's hood, he was roadkill in my book.
And, I see a lot of bloggers making a big deal this guy was driving a Mercedes Benz. So what. I know a lot of people who aren't rich who drive a Benz. A lot of them can barely afford to keep it running but that's the car they have for whatever reason. I'm pretty well off and I drive Fords. What's that say? (Shut up, Chevy guys. Heh ...)
I support ($$$) these protests wholeheartedly. I stand with Scott Olsen and the other vets. But let's pick our "poster children" a little more carefully. If this is supposed to be a non-violent protest, be non-violent. This guy was just an idiot and got what he deserved, let's not glorify him.
