A predictable backlash to these over-reaching, idiotic "protesters," eh?
NC motorists who hit protesters blocking roadways will be legally protected under proposed bill
Drivers in North Carolina might soon be allowed to plow their cars through protesters forming human walls on the road.
A new bill approved by the state House will legally protect motorists who hit protesters blocking the road...
House Bill 330 was approved in a 67-48 vote late last week. The bill was drafted in response to protests in Charlotte that paralyzed traffic last fall.
Republican Rep. Justin Burr, the bill’s sponsor, said to Fox News. “In a number of cases the protests turned riots resulted in violence and the terrorizing of unsuspecting motorist, their passengers and property.”
“I strongly believe North Carolina should protect law abiding drivers from facing civil liability if a protester is injured while attempting to illegally block traffic on a public highway or interstate."
I can see it now, eh? A wall of protesters, 10-20 deep, blocking a freeway on one side. A quarter a mile away, facing them, 200 dragsters with massive engines. Then comes the announcement over a P.A. system: "Gentlemen, start your engines."
Then a flag drops and the air goes dark from burning rubber and ear plugs are needed to avoid permanent hearing loss as the drivers mash the accelerators through the floor.
When the carnage is over the drivers will say "Yeah, sue me, chumps."
