During the past several days, I’ve noticed many of the protestors and looters have attacked people that were stuck in traffic with bats and sticks and they attempted to pull the drivers out of their vehicles. I do not know where the law stands on this, but if I’m stuck in my car and a bunch of people start coming towards me with bats threatening my life, I would have to seriously consider using my car as weapon. I saw this happen yesterday in the city I was in when a bunch of protesters confronted a guy in his SUV and they started to kick and hit his vehicle. The guy backed away, but if he would have pushed forward, he would have very easily runned over at least five people.
When this does happen like in this case with the FedEx driver, then the protestors act shocked and stunned that the driver used his vehicle to escape a dangerous life threatening situation.
