Dh has to drive to LA for work tomorrow. Hopefully no one is rioting or trying to f*ck his car up.

If they do I hope he runs them over.

Doubt either is going to happen.  1. anyone trying to damage his car 2. him running anyone over

If 1 happens, and then 2 happens, I feel bad for the ass beating your husband gets.  Rioters in LA don't give a shit...best look forward and drive and avoid all confrontation.

Did you see the video of people trying to drive and avoid it? Protesters jumped on their cars. One van did just start driving at them and they got out if the way.

If you ain't a car stay out the fu$?ing street!

Ehh...they have a right to protest. 

I don't really understand the point of protesting a verdict, though.  It isn't going to change.  And it's not like they can retry him in state court due to double jeopardy.  Regarding the DoJ investigating for possible civil rights violations, the FBI has already declared there was no racial bias.  

I think the whole thing is stupid.

What your explaining happened in Oakland I thought. What part of LA is he driving to? If its downtown he'll be fine but if it's South Central area... Well it's never safe there.

Of course!  If they vandalize, they've crossed the line into criminal activity.

Protesting can be peaceful, rioting is what these idiots are doing.

Did it happen in Oakland too?

From what I understand they had a specific place to gather but then some sh*t went wrong.

Honestly I don't get why LA is getting so crazy. It's not our courts that decided the verdict.

They do not have a right to attack innocent people on the street, destroy property, enter businesses or impede traffic. They were getting on top of cars, stealing a child s scooter and beating people waiting for the bus.
