What Happened in LA Thursday Night

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

On Thursday night, a BLM protest occurred (apparently without prior notice or authorization) on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood. On two separate occasions, motorists who came into the area, apparently unaware of the protest, were caught up in the crowd, and struck protesters while trying to escape. Below are videos of both incidents.  Both drivers have been arrested.

In the first incident, a white Prius (apparently) strikes a couple of protesters on the side while attempting to escape the crowd and is chased by people on foot and vehicle. He is eventually cut off by another vehicle, boxed in by a third vehicle, and attacked by the protesters before taking off again and eventually being stopped-and arrested- by police. (Hat tip Ezra Levant)

The Daily Mail (UK) has two videos of the second incident in which a black pickup truck first strikes a woman blocking the street and then runs over her attempting to flee the mob attacking the car. It is the second video (KTLA) and lasts 37 seconds. The video begins with the pickup truck in the lower-left corner of the video. The Daily Mail also has a video of the incident involving the white Prius from a different angle.

Videos don’t always show everything necessary to come to a conclusion, but it seems to me that the white Prius was, indeed, being menaced by some in the crowd and probably felt a sense of danger. There doesn’t seem to be any deliberate intent to injure anyone on his part. The second incident, involving the black pick-up truck is more troubling, but then again, he is going to claim fear for his life and self-defense. Based on what I see in the videos, I expect charges against the driver of the white Prius to be dropped.

From what I heard on local Los Angeles radio today, these marches were unannounced and not previously authorized by the city, so I assume the drivers arrived at the scene unaware of the protest. These events are to be avoided (unless, of course, you are a protester), and if you wind up in such a situation, it’s best to remain in your car.
