Above the Law
Slate. The violence seen in Charlottesville “has no place in America,” Trump said shortly after the Charlottesville mayor confirmed that at least one person had been killed by a car that plowed into a group of counter-protesters. “What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives,” Trump said.
Resilc: “no place in America but everywhere we touch overseas…..violence is as american as apple pie, since 1492.”
Includes raw video footage.
“BTW two other things struck me as unusual: 1) why didn’t the airbag deploy in a 40-50 mph head on collision that crumpled the bonnet (was it disabled)?; and, 2) note the impressively straight and fast reverse egress of the Dodge Charger in the video (extreme presence of mind one concentration if the crash was panicked or heat of the moment)”
“The video gives strong indicators of premeditation. The acceleration appeared controlled, as well as the impressive egress. Hard to imagine that egress if the act was from panic or road rage. Note too the hands seemingly calm at 10 and 2 at the impact.
Seemed more like it was the plan to crash then back out. Then there’s the air bag. If it was planned, you would want to disable the system because an air bag can injure you or even knock you out.”
