    Is vehicular manslaughter as a tool of political oppression really ďa thingĒ, or are people trying to spin up a few incidents into a trend?

    A few people locally have run over demonstrators. I also donít believe people should be demonstrating in the streets. They need to stay on the sidewalk.

    I donít think the first amendment mentioned being restricted to sidewalks.

    No it isn't, but anyone stepping into traffic to exercise that right is taking a terrible risk. One that once taken can't really be blamed on someone else.

    Nor does it mention sticking my hand in a wood chipper. Itís really more of a natural selection thing than a constitutional issue.

    It also doesn't mention that you can unlawfully imprison another citizen to force them to listen to your speech.

    The Supreme Court has issued a few opinions on the matter of parade permits, and parades/gatherings as speech. There are some bits in some of them about blocking traffic and violating laws.

    I try to make sense of the violence in places where it seems to be new or running amok. I am at a loss to understand it.

    I don't think violence ever makes sense and finds that it usually detracts from any message trying to be presented.
