Onlookers said the driver deliberately ran over the pair, accelerating after a man hit on the hood of the car.

The windshield was splattered with what appeared to be a milkshake.

After the car stopped at the other end of the intersection, the driver switched seats with his female passenger.

About 40 people gathered in the intersection and some pulled open the driver’s door.

The woman inside shouted: “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry!”

The injured man and woman were taken away in ambulances.

Police let the driver go.

Haha, I just fucking give up. Really? A man is allowed to assault others with a deadly weapon because he’s wealthy and they’re activists? Jesus fucking christ.

In a nutshell.

Sexual abuse or harassment at Occupy protests don’t mean the protests are worthless, anymore than Julian Assange’s sexual history said anything about WikiLeaks. As Gaeng says, it’s depressing but true that people commit sex crimes outside the context of protests all the time. Radical movements won’t set themselves apart by keeping those crimes under wraps — sadly, that’s what regular society does all too often. Instead, they can become models of prevention, protection, and awareness.

Free speech is just an illusion. Since most states are right-to-work, you must curb your speech at all times for fear of offending a certain religion, political party, client, etc. This includes in-person, protests, Facebook, emails, etc. The government may not be able to curb your speech (much), but since corporations can, you have no free speech.
