Today the trial for the Kelley Square 4 began, as they attempt to prove to a judge why they were allowed to stand in traffic and block people from traveling freely. If for some reason you’ve never seen this video, here is all the evidence you really need to see:
Case closed. Guilty as charged. Julius Jones led the blockade:
Boom-boom was given away by her own junk in the trunk
Kevin Ksen stood creepily on the side in the shadiest trench coat ever, bothering a young child and forcing him to cover his ears:
RBG jumped on the truck
Hit it with his hand
And then threatened the driver with his fists up
At no point does the truck come within five or six feet of the protesters
Other hippies physically came in contact with idled cars
They incited a near mob scene by refusing to allow law abiding, tax paying citizens to travel safely
The reason doesn’t matter. How people reacted doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is that you’re not allowed to block the road and they did anyway.
I got all juiced up today when I saw this headline from Masslive:
Amazing. They cost the truck driver his job? Perfect. This story literally couldn’t be any better. Not that it matters if he lost his job, because it’s not like it’s only illegal if someone loses their job. But it just makes them seem like such bigger assholes.
Here’s the thing though – something didn’t seem right. According to Masslive, the driver, Bruce Davis, said the following on the stand:
“I don’t have a problem with the movement, I have a problem with the way they go about doing things,” said Erickson. “I believe all lives matter. I’m not prejudiced, but I think there’s a better way.”
While Davis said he didn’t care about the protest, he did say he honked his horn repeatedly to “drown out” the protesters.
“I didn’t want to hear it, nobody else wanted to hear it,” Davis said.
First of all, it is nothing less than a miracle, that when he said, “All lives matter,” Julius Jones’ head didn’t explode. When he hassled Hillary a couple months back, one of the things he told her was that “all lives matter” was a violent thing to say.
Secondly, I love how this guy admits that he honked his horn to shut them up. He should be given a medal for that. But here’s the problematic part:
Davis told the court he lost his job after being late to deliver what was in his truck. He said he was four hours late getting to Ohio because of the roughly five minutes he was delayed in Worcester’s Kelley Square.
Wait….what? I’m not a math expert, but how can a five minute delay make you four hours late on a trip that normally takes 12 hours? How did the prosecution not see this one coming? Did they not talk to this guy? Obviously he is lying, which just makes him look like a jamoke. He didn’t have to embellish it, all he had to do was say what we all saw on the tape:
The truck driver also told the court that one of the protesters, he identified as Gibbs, jumped onto his truck and was yelling at him.
Exactly. Case closed.
Then of course this happened:
Unreal. This slob got fired for something a month later that had nothing to do with this blockade, and now Hector Pineiro’s gonna have something to go on, in a case that should’ve been a slam dunk for the prosecution.
Meanwhile the other witness wasn’t much help either. Her name is Beth Erickson, and she decided to confess that she likes to make up imaginary black grandchildren to get through blockades:
Erickson told police she yelled back at the protesters, using obscenities, and lied to them to try and get through. She said she told them she was going to the hospital to visit her granddaughter.
“‘Would it matter to you if I told you my granddaughter was black?'” Erickson said she asked the protesters.
Defense attorneys asked both the drivers how close they got to the protesters, to which Erickson admitted coming within inches of the people standing in the road. Davis said he kept 10 feet away and denied driving at them.
Oh sweet baby Jesus. Did the prosecution just forget to talk to these idiots beforehand? Once again, it doesn’t change the fact that the defendants committed a crime. And since this is being decided by a judge and not a jury full of morons, it should still be an easy guilty. Luckily Hector Pineiro is making it easier by going with the “free speech” route:
[The protest] was consistent with a rich tradition of civil rights this country has,” Hector Piniero, Gibbs’ attorney, said. “Political speech will always inconvenience certain people who disagree with the content of the speech.”
No, political speech doesn’t always inconvenience “certain people” who disagree with the content of the speech. Because we have the option to ignore speech we don’t agree with. The problem was that these protesters didn’t give drivers the opportunity to ignore them. And if you let them blockade traffic for their cause, then the pro-lifers will be blockading next, followed by the anti-guns, followed by the pro-guns, followed by the anti-Obamacare, followed by the Global Warming. And a line will never be able to be drawn. The streets will be open to anyone who wants to blockade it.
The bottom line is it doesn’t matter what the witnesses said. Because we have video that shows the entire ordeal. They blockaded traffic, they disturbed the peace, and they are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
