Under this law plowing through the antifa RIOTERs would have been fine. Which yes that is fine.But, at the same time, not okay for the Charlottesville killer J Fields to run his car through a crowd of protesters and murder Heather Heyer.....?I understand your sensibilities, but he is not advocating legal murder. He is talking about limits of rights to self defense. While, I am no advocate for intentional vehicular homicide, it is more than a philosophic question. If traveling, a tourist in a city unfamiliar to you, turning down the wrong street at the wrong time, could place your life in jeopardy. Should you simply give up and assume your life and freedom from physical, malicious harm automatically forfeit, and your spouse, kids, grand kids also forfeit, if through no fault of your own you are surrounded, blocked from escape, as rioters attack you in your vehicle? It has happened. Philosophy may not be adequate to meet the day when baseball bats and galvanized pipe meet the windows of your light duty SUV.Only a RWNJ would come up with a legal way of murdering people who's views they don't agree with.Legalized murder? Of course a moonbat would come up with this oxymoron. Is legalized murder like abortion, by any chance?And they shouldn't. That opens the door to legalized murder.Yes but some prosecutors won't look at it in that light.Its already legal if you are being attacked....if a mob surrounds your vehicle and begins breaking glass and smashing fenders you have a right to escape your attackers even if they are climbing on your car....even if you end up killing a few you have a right to escape danger.....
Killing someone in self-defense is not murder, Einstein. Is it even manslaughter? Maybe in some states?
However, the person who was killed was not on the driveway, nor was she with Antifa as far as I recall. Obviously driving over people that are not on the driveway, and not rioting is not fine.
But good point that the law should be expanded so those kinds of scenarios no longer take place. If antifa shows to violently terrorize an event they should be promptly shipped to jail. Heather is dead because Antifa chased a person in a car, let them never do that again.
