Protesters in Falmouth are really, really mad at a plow driver for doing his job. Video in link here.
A group of demonstrators holding signs and protesting President Donald Trump in the heart of Falmouth say a snowplow disrupted their peaceful protest. A group of protesters were standing on the Falmouth town green Monday afternoon when they said the plow sprayed them with slush and ice from the side of the road twice.
“The plow was not already down when he came down the road,” Zach Uljua said. “He put it down before he got to us.”
Video from the scene showed the second pass the plow made.
“I saw the truck come by and huge splash of mucky water and snow hitting people over here on the side,” Sandra Faiman-Silva said. “People felt that he was being aggressive with his driving.”
“A sane, trained plow driver would have never acted the way he did,” Christine Uljua said.
“It just made me angry that someone in Falmouth chose to do this instead of finding another way to let them know he didn’t like our opinion,” Pat Keoghan said.
Police identified the plow driver as John Pimental, 31, of Mashpee. He will be summonsed to court for disorderly conduct and assault.
Breaking News – protesters upset at plow driver for doing his job. Updates available as they come in. Thank God WCVB was there to cover this hard hitting story.
Hey, I have an idea – let’s protest right by the side of the road when it’s snowing and there’s slush everywhere. That’s like complaining about getting covered in trouser gravy after giving a virgin his first handjob. Next up at 10 – woman blames Trump after getting sunburned while sitting at the beach for 10 hours.
People in Falmouth should be happy that they actually have a DPW that clears the roads. Try living in one of those towns where the DPW’s official policy is YOLO. As you can see the plow driver is simply making the road wider.
I for one commend him because I can’t stand when the plows don’t plow all the way to the edge. Two lane roads become one, traffic congests, you can’t turn right on red. It turns into a nightmare.
And honestly, even if he did do it intentionally, so what? He’s making the road wider which benefits everyone else. If you stand near the road after or during a snowstorm then you’re gonna get plow residue all over you eventually. They could’ve protested in the middle of the green, but they wanted to be closer so people could see their cool signs and get a bunch of woke honks of the horn.
Of course the funniest part is that these people chose to protest while it was snowing and sleeting and then they complained about….GETTING WET!!! Snowflakes covered in snowflakes.
Oh the irony. A bunch of upper middle class white people whining about racism. And comparing Trump to Hitler, slave owners, and ISIS seems like a completely fair and reasonable thing to put on a sign. Definitely gonna take that guy seriously.
Great call bringing the kid out too. I’m sure lots of little boys would rather stand in the snow and protest a President who Grandma and her bridge club told them is the devil instead of sitting at home playing XBox Live.
The twat patrol was out in full force in the comments as well.
He assaulted them with snow while it was snowing. How will they ever survive?
Good point Holly. Plow drivers don’t have to “fling” the snow. Everyone knows that when you plow a road the snow magically disappears the second it touches the blade.
This is all Trump’s fault!
He made that plow driver plow snow. If that’s not a hate crime I don’t know what is. It’s exactly like the girl in Charlottesville who was killed. Never forget!
Sandra Faiman-Silva is one of the woman who was interviewed by WCVB and whined about getting wet from the snow. Here’s what she posted before the protest.
“Snow will not deter us.”
Actually….it sounds like it did deter you. Just sayin.
She also whined about it on Facebook, even though her pictures show protesters intentionally standing as close to the road as possible while being aggressive with the only guy in this story who was actually working and contributing to society.
The only injustice here is that John Pimental, the plow driver, is being summonsed to court for disorderly conduct and assault because a bunch of whiny white Cape Cod grandmas clutched their pearls and ran to the police because they got went in the snow.
