our flourishing justice system

Jackass In Fancy Car Mows Into Oakland Protesters (VIDEO)

Here is the cell phone video of some vicious asshole driving self-importantly in his Mercedes through the protester crowd in Oakland last night until one male protester stops in front of the car and then pounds on the hood a few times. HEY HEY. Do not molest the rich man’s expensive penis car!!! So, insanely, the driver decides to hit the fucking gas, the protester, and another lady in the march. And yet! Want to know the actual worst part?

BWAHAHAHAHA the cops did not arrest this sociopath. Hooray for tiered justice systems! Oakland police certainly managed to arrest plenty of other people last night, but nope, not this young white guy in his Mercedes who tried to flee the scene until protesters blocked his vehicle.

From the SF Chronicle:

The driver, who was not identified, sat in his silver Mercedes-Benz sedan after the 7:30 p.m. incident while hundreds of people screamed at him through his closed windows.

BART police officers who were guarding nearby transit stations responded, questioned the driver and several witnesses, then let the driver leave the scene at 11th Street and Broadway in his car.

The two people who were hit, a man and a woman, suffered leg and ankle injuries that were not life-threatening, said BART Police Deputy Chief Daniel Hartwig. They were taken to Highland Hospital.

As the driver left, many in the crowd yelled at him and at police, saying he should have stayed at the scene or been arrested.

Jesus Christ. Anyway, the rest of the strike was largely peaceful and empowering and the Chronicle estimated there were about 7,000 people. Here’s a fun AP video of the daytime strike festivities with all the teachers and grannies and tuba players, the true heroes of this story.

    prick in mercedes is a f*&%in prick. As the old joke goes, whats the difference between a porsche (in this case a mercedes) and a porcupine?

    A porcupine has pricks on the outside.

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      I've only ever heard that about BMWs, but in my experience you could insert "Hummer" or "Jeep CJ" too (what the hell is with those CJ drivers?)

      1. Lascauxcaveman

        Around my neck of the woods, only girls drive CJs. The manly men all have 4WD lifted Rams or F-250s to make up for their personal deficiencies.

        1. BaldarTFlagass

          There's plenty of that down here too, but there's a lot of CJs with 4-inch lifts and 33" monster mudders that the drivers seem to think they're driving Mini Cooper S types or something, zipping in and around in rush hour traffic like assholes, "what are all you fucks doing on my highway" kinda shit.

          1. Lascauxcaveman

            Well, I just sold my 21-year-old Camry (Farewell, Auntie Camry, you classy grey dame) but haven't noticed any loss of size since moving up to an 18-year-old Subaru wagon.

            I have been having more lesbian-sex-scene fantasies, however.

          2. Unfairman

            I am also carless. I ride my bike a lot, which means that while I have an infinitely large penis, my Gibraltar-sized balls are most often chafed.

        2. Dashboard_Jesus

          is it true that when shopping for on o' them 'manly' trucks they gotta measure yer penis first, to make sure it's under the 2" maximum? (or so *someone* told me)

      2. Fare la Volpe

        My old man drives a Beemer we inherited from my grandfather; and ever since, he has slowly been morphing into the crotchetiest old fart on the planet. I think it's the leather interior what does it.

    1. Dashboard_Jesus

      my guess is somebody got the douchebags license # and from there it's pretty easy to get the driver's address, or so I've been told (jus' sayin')

    1. deelzebub

      As I have said many times before, you never want to vandalize a car with a knife, on the off chance that you get caught you can be accused of carrying and concealing a deadly weapon. You take pliers and rip out the valve stems.

      1. finallyhappy

        Thanks for that suggestion! I think that the school scissors(rounded edges, plastic handle, safe for first graders) I carry for my corcheting probably couldn't do anything to a tire- although at the Postal Museum- they were confiscated. The guard did hold them until I left.

  2. BaldarTFlagass

    Didn't anyone have a fucking brick? Ok, that's not nice. A paint balloon would have sufficed.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      To tell the truth, I'm kinda glad the prostesters did the right thing: hold the dickhead until the cops got his ID. Reportedly, the driver and his lady friend switched seats before the police arrived, but the crowd let the cops know. Suggests that the dickhead had a suspended license, and/or was DWI. (Driving while an imbecile.)

  3. HedonismBot

    Teachers, grannies and tuba players are my true heroes. Tubas are funny, because sometimes they sound like a fart!

      1. mrpuma2u

        I ran over some dirty hippies at the protest fair,
        but i didn't get arrested, 'cuz i know the mayor

    1. comrad_darkness

      I continue to be impressed by your deft wielding of a broad range of cultural knowledge, Barb. Just have to say that.

  4. Lucidamente1

    Well, it was George Wallace who said "I tell you when November [1968] comes, the first time [protesters] lie down in front of my limousine it'll be the last one they ever lay down in front of; their day is over!"

  5. prommie

    They were in a hurry to get home; the driver suffers from rheumatism, and the only relief he can get is by resting his feet on the warm belly of one of his slave boys.

  6. YouBetcha

    Can someone please find a way to help these guys to compensate for their pencil-thin dicks with something other than an SUV or a gun? Maybe someone can turn them on to gardening.

    1. CommieLibunatic

      Phallic towers in Minecraft are easy and fun!

      …n-not that I would know anything about that, of course. I heard it from a friend!

    2. angryhaiku

      We don't want them gardening, ruining our state fairs with competitions over who can grow the biggest zucchini.

    1. not that Dewey

      I once received a birthday card showing this photo and the caption "Hitler and Mussolini had a lot to smile about, in 1940."

      EDIT: But that's not my answer. I would never answer "Hitler" to one of these things. My answer is … Alfonso XII?

  7. Callyson

    Officers gathered information from the driver and witnesses, and now the Oakland Police Department will handle the investigation, Hartwig said.
    "It was a pretty volatile situation," he said. "There is no arrest at this time, but that doesn't mean there won't be if there's a need for an arrest."
    Oh, that's reassuring. So glad to hear the cops are on top of things.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Vehicular assault, on video?
      The douche definitely will have some splainin' to do. I bet he's already out a lawyer's retainer fee, with more to come.

    2. GFPcat

      Yes, they may determine later that the protesters committed a felony by leaving a dimple in the guys hood.

  8. widestanceshakedown

    I hope the driver enjoyed hot-boxing soiled pants all the way home. Hell, he probably blasted lasting memories for months to come.

    Bummer about that resale value. Not.

  9. BaldarTFlagass

    Hit two pedestrians? And only sent them to the hospital? David Carradine sneers in disgust from his grave.

    Driving While Rich is kinda like the opposite of Driving While Black.

    They let him go so he could create some more sweet, sweet jerbs.

    A non-life-threatening injury is no big deal. Unless you don't have health insurance. Then it is a bankruptcy situation:
    – ambulance to hospital : $300
    – ER treatment for injured ankle : $2000
    – rehabilitation therapy : $5000
    – getting hit by a Mercedes : priceless

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      $300? That's a pretty low-rent ambulance, even for Oakland.

      I hope they rack up the expenses, then sue the jackass. With a video of his brilliant maneuver, he's got no defense … and his auto policy probably doesn't cover deliberate assaults like this. Even if his insurance does pick up the tab, his premiums will skyrocket, so it's all good.

        1. Biel_ze_Bubba

          If he's driving uninsured, things get even more interesting for him. Cops LOVE that shit, no matter who the driver is.

          1. BaldarTFlagass

            Meh, it's still only a 2 or 3 hundred dollar fine if you get a ticket for no insurance, at least here in TX.

          2. Biel_ze_Bubba

            Leave it to Texas to make getting fined cheaper than getting insurance. Freedumb!

            The fine is about $800 in CA, and they pull your registration.

          3. BaldarTFlagass

            And I know people who have driven for 2 or 3 years with an expired vehicle safety inspection sticker here.

      1. tessiee

        "With a video of his brilliant maneuver, he's got no defense"

        Yeah, that's what Rodney King thought, too.

    2. SorosBot

      It's OK, in this situation the driver's insurance is responsible for the treatment, and the victims should be reimbursed quickly, in about a decade or so.

    1. comrad_darkness

      Hm, I'm thinking that pic needs to be my xmas card for this year.

  13. owhatever

    You expect the Oakland policers to respond to an actual crime? They questioned the driver, didn't they?

    Cop: Hot car, dude. Think the Raiders can beat the Broncos on Sunday?
    Driver: They'll stomp that puss Tebow's ass.
    Cop: You have a good day, sir.
    Driver: You, too. Kick some hippie in the balls for us 1 percenters.

    1. SheriffRoscoe

      And that goes quadruple for property and animals. Don't even get me started on my dog locked in a hot car so I dialed 9-1-1 story.

      1. Occupy V572

        In 1990 in Ladue MO (a ritzy St Louis suburb near where I then lived), I was almost run over in a snowy parking lot by a guy in a Mustang. As his car passed inches from me I smacked my hand on the C-pillar and went into the store. The driver stopped, got out and yelled at me and I ignored him. When I came out of the store he was waiting for me with a cop, who took me to task for my awful crime. I said, “He practically ran me over,” and the cop said, “You don’t ever attack property” with a fierce gleam in his eye.

        1. 102415

          In NYC, a long time ago, an asshole put his foot on the gas and moved into the cross walk where I walking and I brought my umbrella handle down hard on his hood and the cops in the car behind me laughed. It was only an old Caddie though and it was a long time ago.

          1. tessiee

            "In NYC, a long time ago, an asshole put his foot on the gas and moved into the cross walk where I walking and I brought my umbrella handle down hard on his hood"

            Please, oh, please tell me you yelled, "I'M WALKIN' HERE! I'M WALKIN' HERE!"

        2. weejee

          Wrong neighborhood V. Here in C'Addle's beloved Central District, I was on the corner getting ready to cross Union at a painted crosswalk with cars in both directions slowing stopped. A lady in a Lexus runs up behind the car in the lane closest to my curb and passes her on the right running up on the curb bulb where my poor olde ass was waitin'. I jumped back and as she passed (half her frickin' car on the sidewalk, I kicked leaving a sizable crease in her right front door. She kept on driving, the person who was stopped gave me a thumbs up. No way in hell was Lexus Lady gonna stop in that neighborhood. Too many browns.

          1. Biel_ze_Bubba

            Heh – I did the same to a car blowing through a stop sign in NYC. Guy stopped, then thought better of it and drove off, with a lot of hoots and raised fingers in his rear-view mirror. Made my month, that did.

  14. Wilcoxyz

    If there's no police report, how will this job creator know who to sue for damages to his vehicle and emotional distress? C'mon, cops! There's property and punitive damages involved here.

      Wherein the driver confused the Occupiers with wabbits?

  20. GregComlish

    Fortunately you don't need to have criminal charges pressed against somebody to file a lawsuit, which should be a slam dunk given the clear video evidence. Somebody needs to get his Mercedes repo'ed. The cops might not put the asshole behind bars, but the plaintiffs should be able to get a huge settlement.

  21. carlgt1

    the worst part is all the "brave" dittoheads posting on youtube that they would run the protestors over if they "dared" block their private property Mercedes….

  22. Guppy

    I'm sure I'm about to make all sorts of friends here, but… I'm going to side with the driver on this one. If you look in the background, you can see he had a green light and the right-of-way. It didn't turn red until after the car stopped.

    There was no sign that the herd mentality was going to let up and let cars through the intersection at all, so the driver tried to take an apparent opportunity. Then came the pedestrian road rage, and I can believe the driver felt like he was surrounded by angry people already before he hit the gas pedal.

    And driving a Mercedes does not automatically make one a complete douche. Used to know a left-leaning lesbian who drove one.

    EDIT: And some more observations. The pedestrian clearly taunted the driver at :02, even before the car got up to him, and if you watch the front wheels you can see the driver did try to go around him, but the pedestrian just got in front of him deliberately.

    Why was the camera following the Mercedes to begin with, and why is there no audio?

    1. natoslug

      Running someone over with a car is still assault with a deadly weapon, regardless of the taunting. Yeah, it might have been a dickhead move on the part of the pedestrian, but that doesn't change the law. If it did, I would've just run over 93% of the population of N. Idaho rather than moving out.

    2. Nesnora

      What if he was toting a shotgun and shooting into the crowd? His car can do much more damage than that, and he USED it.

      Losing your temper and attempting to murder people because they annoyed you or dented your car is insane, and there is no justification for that in civilized society.

      Also a green light does not mean you have the right of way to intentionally run over and kill/maim people, derp sorry.

      He was using his car as a deadly weapon, with intent to maim/kill. If you can justify this with arguments that he had complete legal rights to execute these protesters specifically, using his car as the weapon, I'd like to hear that. "traffic laws lol" and "he was annoyed ok" is just not working.

      1. Guppy

        1.) The driver did try to get around the guy first (i.e. tried to avoid the confrontation to begin with).

        2.) The pedestrian was beating on the guy's hood, shouting who-knows-what.

        3.) The car was already in the middle of a crowd that was likely hostile to people who happen to drive a Mercedes (look at some of the other comments here for examples of such a prejudice).

        4.) The camera was already following the car, meaning the person holding the camera already expected something noteworthy to happen involving the car (see #3).

        Yes, a car is a deadly weapon, but there are times when you're legally allowed to use a deadly weapon, like when you reasonably feel your own life is in danger.

        1. Nesnora

          1.) Justification for killing people because of annoyance.

          2.) Justification for killing people because of annoyance.

          3.) Justification for killing people because of annoyance.

          4.) Justification for killing people because of annoyance.

          His life wasn't in danger, proven by the fact no one smashed in his windows AFTER he ran people over, threw shit at him or took a tire iron to his vehicle. He drove away.

          1. Guppy

            So now the driver is expected to be able to see into the future? To be omniscient about the thoughts and feelings of each of the dozens of people around him?

            There was no way for the driver to know that the guy beating on his hood was the only one who wanted to get violent with him, and the standard for acting in self-defense is a reasonable belief of being threatened.

          2. Guppy

            Yes. The pedestrian was looking for a confrontation of some sort, in spite of the driver trying to avoid it. We don't know what was shouted, but "Have a nice day!" and "Peace and love!" tend not to get punctuated by pounding on the hood of a car.

            And, again, the driver was already surrounded by a crowd that tends to be hostile to people in luxury cars. It wasn't the Jeep(?) that the hood-pounder and the cameraman were already fixated on.

            PS: I'm done here.

          3. Nesnora

            Ok great. So if you didn't know the specifics (I'm sure you can Google it and find a million legal websites), you can't claim self-defense with excessive force.

            Verbal threats, predictions, fears or paranoia never, ever justifies excessive force (in legal terms), even if you can prove you thought you were acting in self-defense.

            Self-defense also does not include protection of property by excessive force either.

            The only force protesters used against this driver (again, with a deadly weapon) was verbal threats (assuming), some hood pounding, and their mere bodily presence. No bricks, nothing. Not even after the incident.

            These are the legal parameters, and I'm damn happy they exist otherwise every road-rage encounter or gun-toting moron would be allowed to shoot-up groups of people that pissed him/her off.

          4. Guppy

            "Verbal threats (…) never, ever justifies excessive force"

            "I'm going to drag your rich ass out of this car!"

            "Let's set this motherfucker on fire!"

            "Flip it over!"

          5. GregComlish

            And by your own specious reasoning the crowd actually had the right to flip the car over out of self-defense. It's clear the car apparently intended to run them over and according the Guppy theory of self-defense this warrants lethal preventative measures.

          6. Nesnora

            Tonight I'm going to use a rocket launcher on the guy who lets his dinosaur/dog poop on our street, for America.

          7. GregComlish

            The pedestrian was looking for a confrontation of some sort, in spite of the driver trying to avoid it

            The car wasn't avoiding any confrontation. He instigated the confrontation by driving into a crowd.

          8. Guppy

            He drove into a gap in the crowd.

            When you try to find a parking spot while Christmas shopping, do you wait until there are absolutely no pedestrians within eyesight before moving your car, or do you move slowly through gaps in the foot traffic?

        2. HogeyeGrex

          ALL of that is meaningless as the douchebag in question could have done what all the other drivers did, wait. First and foremost, he drove into a crowd. He was not "already in the middle of a crowd." He fucking drove there. Then he wondered why anyone might be a little pissed off at him. When someone goes all Ratso Rizzo on his ass, he floors it, running him over. Then, for good measure, he backs back into the crowd hitting yet another person, this one doing absolutely nothing.

          You're trying to defend this sort of behavior?


          Also, protestors have learned to keep the fucking cameras rolling, thank you very much. Time and time again it has proven out to be a good idea. Totally unsurprising that one of the probably hundreds of cameras there was pointed in this direction at the time.

          1. Guppy

            "could have done what all the other drivers did, wait."

            The SUV didn't wait either. The car that's just to the left of the camera didn't move, but he already had someone standing still (i.e. the guy closest to the camera) in front of his headlights.

            "He was not "already in the middle of a crowd." He fucking drove there"

            We can't see what was going on behind the Mercedes until it was already in the intersection. However, there was a clear gap in the crowd that both vehicles tried to take advantage of. And once the Mercedes was stopped in the intersection, it was clearly impossible to back up without hitting a dozen people.

            Until someone literally jumped off of the curb in front of him, the only real obstacle to either vehicle was the large guy in the black shorts. The Mercedes steered to pass behind him, while the SUV stopped. This guy didn't seem to feel threatened by either vehicle (he'd likely have flinched if one of them honked at him).

            "protestors have learned to keep the fucking cameras rolling, "

            The camera was focused squarely on one particular vehicle out of (at least) three, and before any of the vehicles entered the intersection.


          2. HogeyeGrex

            The SUV didn't wait either.

            Yes, it did. It rolled a little into the intersection, then stopped when pedestrians were going to cross in front of it. It certainly didn't mow anyone over, ergo, it waited.

            Until someone literally jumped off of the curb in front of him,

            Umm. Bullshit. The two folks in front of the Merc were already well on their way across by the time they met the Merc. Nobody "jumped off the curb" literally or otherwise.

            the only real obstacle to either vehicle was the large guy in the black shorts.

            The guy who was already about done crossing? Non entity in the event. He was merely the closest moving pedestrian to the camera. There were plenty of other people in the intersection.

            The Mercedes steered to pass behind him,

            No. The Merc was in another lane and did not steer at all. Its wheels remain straight.

            What the Merc did was roll right up to two people crossing the street and, when dude crossing tells him "whoa there big fella" he rolls forward into him. Twice. This pisses dude off, whereupon dude thumps on the hood.

            What part of any of this gives the driver of the Merc the right to do what he did next, which was floor it and run the dude over? Where is the justification for the use of deadly force? There isn't any. Your apologia for this is stunning in its wrongheadedness.

            The camera was focused squarely on one particular vehicle out of (at least) three, and before any of the vehicles entered the intersection.


            What video are you even looking at? The only thing the camera is "focused squarely on" beforehand is the guy standing in the center of the frame, possibly a friend of the camera holder's, who knows? What are you even trying to say here, anyway? That there was some pre-arranged conspiracy between the cameraperson and the guy who got run over to make the Merc driver look bad? Really? WTF? "Hey George! Film me while I get this car to run my ass into the pavement!" What fucking drugs are you on?

            And again, none of it, not a single thing, even if pedestri-dude was being a dick, gives the Merc driver the slightest grounds for trying to kill people. Period.

    3. Monsieur_Grumpe

      I respectfully disagree. An abrupt start like that in a crowded situation like that is just plain stupid. I don’t know the mental state of the driver at the time whether he/she was confused, scared or just plain angry it doesn’t matter. He/she is someone who should not have a license.

    4. MissTaken

      Here in California pedestrians always have the right of way, regardless of red or green lights, lack of crosswalks, taunting drivers, etc.

      1. HogeyeGrex

        Yes and no. According to the Vehicle Code, pedestrians do have certain responsibilities, and there are circumstances where it is reasonable to assume vehicular right of way. These are generally restricted to the absolutes of Newtonian physics. If you jump out from between parked cars into the path of a swiftly moving truck, you can fairly expect to become grillburger, and the law will not punish the driver.

        Other than that, yeah, even if the pedestrian is breaking the law, it is verboten to run them over. Period.

    5. LiveToServeYa

      Thanks at least for breaking the Wonkette groupthink. No matter what you post, I promise not to run over you :) , yea, I will even fist you for your balls. We need more balls-fisting around here. Or something.

    6. Negropolis

      Sorry, you're right. You are fucking ridiculous. Yeah, it's a conspiracy. If I can roll my eyes any further…

      There are battles to be picked, but this one isn't even close. Not. Even. Close.

  23. Nostrildamus

    I look forward the driver's inevitable sympathetic interview on Hannity.

    "So how's your car holding up after all it's been through?"

    "out of the way, peck!" what a tough guy, hitting people with his car. so when does he get his own radio show?

    anyway, man versus machine? somewhere Paul Bunyan is smirking.

    The car that struck the protesters was a silver Mercedes Benz, with a custom Californian license plate "AJHJR"

    When we were protesting Gulf War I in the mean streets of Thousand Oaks, California, some asshole drove up ON THE SIDEWALK into the protesters, after he'd already been stopped next to us at the light.

    A girl was paralyzed.

    They didn't arrest him either, because he'd said he was "scared."

      "They didn't arrest him either, because he'd said he was "scared." "

      When I was a college freshman, I rented a room in a house off-campus. Two of my buds came to visit, but they got the address slightly wrong, and stopped at the house next door. Oh, yeah, did I mention that one of the two buds was a black guy? My landlady later chastised me because, "Mrs. Waspwell [the neighbor] was terrified."
      Me [trying not to smirk]: Really? "Terrified"? Why was she terrified?
      Landlady: …
      Me: I thought Tony and Kevin just asked where to find 48 Glenview Road.
      Landlady: …

      Apparently, the members of the owning class are easier to scare than a baby duckling.

    in fairness to the driver, the protester should not have done that. In fainess to the protestor, the driver should have been arrested and charged without question. Fairness 0, money 2.

    But here's something priceless: one account states that he tried to switch seats with his female passenger before the cop approached him. It's been tried before by an NJ pol, I don't doubt he tried it.

    I hate when the 1% mows down gatherings of 99%. Why the rich does that to po' folks all the time.

    Wonder who the police would have taken in had someone hauled off and popped that motherfucker in the eye? Wonder what his life's gonna be like once he's an internet meme like the douchebag who threw dollar bills in the face of a disabled senior.

    "the cops did not arrest this sociopath"

    There's a Simpsons episode where Marge calls the cops to report an attacker, and they tell her they're powerless. So she retaliates, and they arrest her.
    Marge: I thought you said you were powerless!
    Officer Wiggum: I said we were powerless to HELP you.

    If it's Automobile against Pedestrian; let's just say it's hard to find a bet on the Pedestrian. Best to let him drive on; maybe help guide him safely with a key along the side of the body as he goes.

        Being familiar with the Big Apple, I can suggest a Bible might come in handy also during that endeavor.

        1. 102415

          Oh, that depends on how many other people are in the cross walk.The bible will only work if you can get under the hood which is unlikely but not unheard of on 34th St.

    For as dick of a move as it is to stop a car and then proceed to bang on its hood, nothing justifies attempting to run over the offender. This wasn't some little bump, as if that be acceptable, either. This was trying to run over the guy, and on top of that knowing that you're in a crowd and could hurt random bystanders.

    Nice work by the guy in the Mercedes. I'll bet that dummy never pounds on the hood of a car ever again.

          Next time the driver should make sure to be behind the wheel of a '65 Chrysler Imperial. With these newer cars you just can't wipe off that kind of damage with a damp sponge.

    From now on the occupiers should be arranged in a 10 nit-wit, triangular formation. Note to drivers: Those seven-ten splits can be a bitch to pick up.
