Democratic Underground posters think the police should allow reckless drivers to continue going 100 mph while weaving through traffic

According to this recent news story from Associated Press, a pickup truck in San Diego was

weaving through traffic at speeds of up to 100 mph

This kind of irresponsible and illegal behavior can end up killing innocent people in other vehicles.

For example, you know that awesome movie A Christmas Story from 1983, about a young boy who wants a BB gun for Christmas?

Well, Bob Clark, the director of that wonderful film, was killed by a reckless driver who was driving the wrong way in another vehicle. Clark’s son was also killed in the crash.

Anyway, in the recent San Diego incident, the police used a spike strip to stop the pickup truck so innocent people in other vehicles would not get killed.

Instead of stopping his vehicle, the driver of the pickup truck ran over the spike strip. This caused the truck to crash and roll over. Eleven people were in the pickup truck, with most of them being in the truck’s bed, which is illegal. Three of the people in the truck were killed, and the other eight were seriously injured.

Thanks to the police, no innocent people were hurt or killed.

I agree with what the police did.

On the other hand, people at Democratic Underground think the police should have allowed the truck’s reckless driver to continue going 100 mph while weaving through traffic.

Here are some of their comments, taken from this thread and this other thread:

“Can this situation at the Border possibly get any worse? When do the tanks roll?”

“we’ll be reminded in the future how extreme this has become and it won’t be fondly”

“Highway speeds, pickup, people in the back, rain…. spike strip. What could go wrong? These mother****ers didn’t even get held accountable during Obama’s administration. There’s no hope of justice or integrity now. Manslaughter with impunity.”

“Sounds like murder to me. What crime was committed that warranted deadly force?”

“This is obscene.”

“‘This is obscene.’ Says it all.”

“what the border cops did was reckless and led to unnecessary deaths. This truck was weaving in and out of traffic at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. The shoulders on that stretch of freeway were trenched next to the lane for drainage or something so it wasn’t safe for rapid deceleration. They knew that. What they did was no different than if they had pulled up next to the truck and opened fire, like in a movie.”

“JESUS CHRIST! What the **** is wrong with them? Sick ****. That device should never be used anyway.”

“Welcome to Trump’s Amerikkka. Border Patrol and ICE should be wearing white sheets with hoods.”

Hundreds of anti-Trump protestors blocking highway at night are shocked when one of them actually gets hit by a car

I’ve said this before about this kind of situation, and I’ll say it again: I’m guessing there’s not a single STEM major in this entire group of hundreds of idiots.

The laws of physics are very unforgiving.

Reality is reality, and no matter how much these ignoramuses try to ignore it, it’s still going to be there.

Hundreds of UCSD students shut down I-5 in protest

November 9,, 2016

LA JOLLA, Calif. – Hundreds of students poured into the streets around the University of California, San Diego, overnight Tuesday following Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election.

At around midnight, hundreds of students began marching and chanting as they made their way through campus and onto Interstate 5 near La Jolla Village Drive Bridge, shutting down traffic as they walked in the freeway.

Sometime after 1 a.m., a UCSD fresman protester was struck and injured by a car on the freeway. She was taken to a local hospital with a broken leg, a school official confirmed. She was in stable condition.

Eventually the crowd dispersed. There were no arrests.
