Quantum Vibe / Re: Something BLM and Antifa types need to consider

...when the rioters attacked the FedEx semi and the driver stomped on the accelerator, he would have been completely exonerated even though one of the rioters turn into a 5 mile long skid mark.


Oh, yea I saw that one. It was on a reddit sub called "meatcrayon". That's all I'm saying and you can find it if you want, but not safe for life.

For some reason, that direct death (Fed-Ex guy was diverted by police) from a BLM freeway closing didn't get a lot of press, but the people who played in traffic in Seattle did.

And then Secoriea Turner was shot and we were back to the bare minimum of coverage again.

I hope that the Fed Ex driver is coping with the death. He had a perfectly reasonable response to someone pointing a gun at him, but survivor's guilt is a real thing.

Unless I'm missing something, QV law is based on NAP or ZAP. Both of those allow you to engage in self defense against an aggressor.

Seeing how many remember what happened to Reginald Denny, when the rioters attacked the FedEx semi and the driver stomped on the accelerator, he would have been completely exonerated even though one of the rioters turn into a 5 mile long skid mark. Likewise when these rioters attacked other various vehicles, when the drivers hit the gas they would be exonerated of any harm to the attackers. Likewise when looters were burning stores and smashing the doors to steal stuff, the owner of the store would have the right to defend his property against the aggressors.

The protesters blocking the road are not without guilt here either. The roads are paid for by people who drive on them via road taxes. Thus when protesters block a road, they are stealing the driver's access to the roads he paid for. Worse, the protesters seem to be protesting the consequences of their own decisions.

I'm not really seeing how these rioters, looters, or even protesters would have any ground to stand on in QV Law. In fact many of them could be legally shot.

I expect him to start singing, "I ain't got nobody" any minute now.

Well we know Hugo's not the type to quit while he's a head.

That joke was a capital offense.

I disagree. The same thing would be true of gun rights or tax relief protests except- Its not the fault of the person being peaceful, its the fault of those that choose to escalate. On either side of the political spectrum. If a crowd is protesting and blocking a street you don't have a right to commit vehicular assault. Likewise, if a person is doing a peaceful open carry someone cant shoot them under stand your ground because they feel threatened. One of the things I really like about Quantum Vibe is that they have very stick "laws" about punishing the aggressor, our hero has even been cited for actions most of us cheered her for.

One of the things some of the story groups keep mentioning is that no one is ever the villain in their own story. You can see this in the videos of the rioters when things go wrong. They are outraged when the car doesn't stop, the truck takes off, their victim fight back with more crazy than they brought to the game, or they get a decade in the slam slam, because they see themselves as the good guys. Ending up battered, bruised, or dead on the street is not something they consider. I suppose this would be the connection.
