Last night there were videos posted of a man plowing through protesters in Bakersfield, California. He has been arrested and charged today:
A man drove a car through a crowd yesterday in Bakersfield and struck a 15-year-old girl. He has been arrested and charged.
We all have a right to protest PEACEFULLY, but destroying lives, businesses, and communities will NOT get us the solutions we should be striving for.

But that isn’t the whole story. In another video, he COMES BACK to target protesters again:

Now I could see some people try to defend his actions as those of someone panicked because they’re being surrounded and possibly attacked by protesters. But that he turned around and went for another swing at the protesters makes it very difficult to justify his actions. I think this dude is in a lot of trouble.
