Proper procedure when pedestrians are blocking street

I guess honking your horn is out?

Milwaukee's Best


They don't mention if the driver was White or Black.

I've seen Aldermen and other officials from Milwaukee on television.
They wore uniforms that matched much of the audience and
they were making calls for their people to attack White people,
if 'reparations' were not quickly paid to them,
to compensate them for the era of Slavery in this Country.

Can you carry a concealed weapon in Wisconsin?

I never honk at big, burly guys with tattoos - I only honk at young women with kids or the elderly.

You mob around my car trying to mess with me, I'm putting the foot down and hitting the kickdown, there's 3,800 lbs and 123HP of raw turbodiesel power coming towards you. If anyone asked, it was self defense.

This is also a good reason to always keep your doors locked while your car is in motion, some people ride around with their doors unlocked, not me though.

Can you carry a concealed weapon in Wisconsin?

Yes he (the driver) lost his advantage when they pulled him from the car. I think I would have just eased down on the go go pedal and they would have move or been moved.

I hope that those responsible for his death all die with great pain.

Perhaps in a giant rock tumbler with a few rocks already in it (and don't let it turn too fast either!)

When a crowd gets in a "mob" state then there is nothing you can do except have a greater force available. Mobs do not listen to reason.

20 years ago, I delivered pizza in a Saab 99ems (roughly the equivalent of a 320i or 280e). One morning, about 3am, I was driving home down a deserted street when 4-5 teens up ahead wanted me to stop. They fanned out across the road to block me. My reflex reaction surprised me, I immediately flicked it into 2nd and floored it. When I got to them, I was doing about 80 in third, and they were not on the road.

I still wonder to this day if they needed help, or if I would have needed help if I'd stopped.

In regards to mobs, I remember a situation in which a MSU block party turned into a mob scene in 1986. Some guy went into the area, trying to get home. He started honking and yelling, trying to shove the crowd with his new Trans Am. The car got flipped and burned, the driver escaped. If you let 20 guys grab your car, you've had it.
