    Berkeley protestors block trains and freeways again.

    Since we have laws preventing people in cars from blocking intersections, outlets from shopping centers, people going onto freeways and Jay walking laws to prevent people walking in the middle of roads, how in gods green earth are these protestors NOT breaking the law with their continual blocking of traffic on highways/freeways and train tracks?

    It makes me wonder if, someone in traffic (or the train drivers) just kept on moving and ran people over, would THEY be the ones arrested?

    I hate to bring this up but your posts many have a little more credibility if you had any idea how to spell.

    I know that at Beale there are constantly protesters outside the gates protesting the drones. They are fine until they start blocking traffic. Once that happens, the police get involved.

    As far as running them over, yes, the driver would be arrested, if it was proven that no attempt to avoid, or stop, was made. Inconvenience of being late to work is no reason to start running people over. But the cops should definitely get them out of the way, though that would probably end up being considered excessive force.

    Yes...seriously. A typo is one thing. Misspelling almost every word in the sentence is another. Very difficult to take someone seriously when they don't even attempt to appear slightly educated.

    Mittens rock!

    Admittedly, you can't do much in them except look cute and stay warm.

    I go for the extra cute look, so I have a pair of black mittens with a Hello Kitty face made from silver and pink rhinestones on the right mitten.

    I punched a biker in the forehead for laughing at me, and it made a big Hello Kitty imprint, so they are good for that.
