    UAW Striker Hit and Killed by a Vehicle

    A striking UAW member was struck and killed by a vehicle on an overpass in Spring Hill, Tennessee. A judge had previously issued a temporary restraining order against the strikers / pickets, after documents were presented in court that the strikers were blocking road access, placing screws and nails in the roadway, intimidating motorists and damaging vehicles: https://www.detroitnews.com/story/bu...nt/4063133002/

    He may have been just a regular guy not bothering anyone, and if so then this is very sad. But if he was involved in "blocking road access, placing screws and nails in the roadway, intimidating motorists and damaging vehicles" then count me among the "freaking cold."

    Gaslighting? You'll have to define that one for me. To me, gaslighting is a term where you try to make someone else think they're going crazy. There's an old movie actually called "Gaslight" where a man tries to convince his wife that she's going mad.

    Perhaps you should clarify what he meant before jumping to conclusions as to meaning.

    You must be thinking we are crazy for you to go and conjure an elaborate maybe-it-happened-plot about how they maybe-not-so-innocent. When all we know is that they were run over and died. Why would you do that? You are slandering them based on fantasy you weaved out of the loom of your mind.

    He didn't "slander" anyone. There has been a history of problems with members of the UAW blocking the roads and placing items to puncture tires (both are crimes). Based on those facts and that this has happened just recently, it isn't a reach to see that possibly the "worker" wasn't innocent in this.

    Either way, the loss of life is sad; but I am dubious that only part of the story is being reported right now.

    But you are also presuming innocence of the run over worker. I see a lot of jumping to conclusions and assumptions about what the run over guy did and also the intent of the words of people are and how they interpret the run over guys actions.

    If you are assuming he was one of the jerks harassing motorists then TruckMans comments don't seem so cold.
    If you are assuming he was a peaceful demonstrator on the side of the road then TruckMans comments seem cold.
    Or possibly the union guy was harassing people and there was an angry motorist who ran the guy over on purpose.
    Or possibly an angry motorist and a peaceful union guy
    Or a motorist was texting and a peaceful union guy was at the wrong place at the wrong time, but then it calls into question the overall safety of picketing on the side of a road.

    A lot of possibilities, a lot of places to make assumptions. Everyone needs to clarify.

    Can't have it both ways. If the UAW worker was truly involved in blocking the road then he was at least partially responsible for his death. What's broken about this country is we have protesters that love to protest but end up complaining when something bad happens like this. Everything has a risk and if a person is running around the street causing problems then there is a higher chance for tragedies like this to happen. Probably important that we get all the facts on the case though.

    Re: UAW Striker Hit and Killed by a Vehicle

    The problem is that 30% of this country believes that you have to be an ******* to your fellow man to feel tough. I stand by my initial reaction, picketing and blocking the road is not punishable by death penalty carried out by am angry ******* behind the wheel of a car. Just like the piece of **** in Charlottesville, who I knew you would defend BTW, if this is indeed the case, he'll be spending a considerable time behind bars as well.

    Do you feel this way about all protestors everywhere? Or only if they protest something you support? Isn’t protesting a right, or are you eager to lie down like a snake and welcome the stomp of a cold boot?
