Anyone else see the video of the demonstrators who, armed with a knife, chased kids into fast foot joints? The kids were dressed kinda like chickens or cows depending upon restaurant chain with the adult pretending to stab them.

They seem to have fled before the local law arrived, but had there been an armed individual on site, things could have become real messy. I fully agree with Evan's intervention policy, but looking up from one's lunch and seeing someone with a large knife approaching would tend to get your attention.

There is a movement amongst the Lefties towards violence--not just nut jobs like the baseball practice shooter, but actually tending towards classes on violence. Some have been couched as 'self defense' preparations for when they're out doing their 'peaceful protests'--you know, burning buildings, beating up disagree'ers, closing streets and such--well, they need to be able to protect themselves from those vicious, violent, whatever-phobic Trump supporters. Hannity had a gal on the other night talking about some class she's doing on 'defensive' exercises; I didn't get to see it all, but she's goofy.

Something like an adult chasing a child with a knife--dressed like a chicken or not--can be expected to bring intervention from somebody; then just wait for the brouhaha from MSM. Ace

Knife wielding.. blood spattered (even if it was fake blood, who can tell)... chasing a child with knife visible would = DEAD in my neck of the woods. And, if the State's Attorney was stupid enough to bring charges, the jury verdict would likely have him/her seeking a new job after the next election.

I suspect the decision to press charges would largely be based upon the prevailing 'community values'. You might be screwed in SF, NY, or MA... but in my neck of the woods you would walk.

And... mischeivious thought... you might find a lawyer willing to sue the parent organization that put those fools up to that stunt for the 'emotional distress' your perfectly normal American male response to this obvious massacre (and aren't Islamic terrorist attacks in the news almost daily?) caused you to do... and the subsequent stress resulting.

I have yet to even SEE a "practicing Vegan" in my neck of the woods of late. I infrequently venture into or through the drive-thru of some fast food places IF, I am famished, and nothing else around looks "safe".
Were a knife wielding person were to consciously and willingly advance on me with a drawn knife, I would be hard pressed to NOT ventilate the costume and what lies underneath. As far as "chasing me" anywhere, with my knees, now, being "chased" is not something I am want to do. Being "chaste" is far easier at least at this point in my life. Locally, just read a news article about a known creeper who followed three younger girls who wisely fled into a Subway for assistance. They got it from a female employee who snapped a photo of the creeper as well as his license plate, being rather bold. Turns out the creeper has a long history of crimes against children, and being an active parolee.
He is lucky she didn't choose to ventilate him.(and his mugshot looks fairly "normal", too.) So, costume or not, vegan or not, arming one's self and advancing on any person in a threatening manner because of a food choice, pretty much guarantees to me at least, you chose what is most likely going to happen to you.

Good point. They could themselves easily wind up as a part of the food chain they are protesting. At least, they would be for the worms.

In my Neck O' The Woods... ya gotta be a really special kinda stupid to run into a fast food place with a knife in yer hand, chasin' some kinds, and 'spect the local folks to just laugh at your frolics

I mean, we're talking about a complete 'upper level not of this world' kinda stupid. The kinda stupid that you almost never see, except on some college campuses, or maybe from a few Democrat politicians.

I wonder if... as they lay there gasping their last from a couple of JHPs to the COM... do they ask, with their last breath, for their Play DOH, coloring books, and puppies?

Just ramblin'

Maybe in 'meccas of cluelessness'--- which, if I'm not mistaken, is a necessary prerequisite for 'veganism'--- like Seattle or San Francisco, fools pulling stupid stunts like that wouldn't be in any danger of getting shot; since no 'right-thinking progressive'--- I know, a contradiction in terms--- would be caught dead carrying a loaded firearm.

Or would they--- realizing they had only moments to live--- suddenly come to their senses: "Ohhh.... what the heck! Before you call the ambulance--- bring me a double cheeseburger with bacon!"

Little Bill,
Lotsa CCWs in WA State. The bad guy chasing a kid with a knife in The Peoples' Republik of Seattle just might encounter a "Normal" from the Hinterlands who never goes to the big city without a piece or 2 (or maybe even 3). I know I don't, but then again I read Evan's article so somebody else can stick their face into it.

Better to perish in the struggle for freedom than live to see defeat.
