#5 As long as it can't fire full auto.

P.S. The Chinese have been smuggling in tens of thousands of parts to make AKs (and ARs?) full auto. Who is getting them?

#7 Pity the driver didn't also run over the other highwaymen trying to block the road.

#9 He was reportedly talking a very tough line prior to his last encounter:

“They don’t let us march in the streets anymore, so I’ve got to practice some of our rights,” he responded.

Foster was asked if he felt like he would need to use the weapon.

“Nah,” he replied. “I mean, if I use it against the cops I’m dead. I think all the people that hate us and want to say shit to us are too big of p-ssies to stop and actually do anything about it.”

Guy had a chip on his shoulder.

#11 One man is dead and another person was detained for questioning after a shooting during a protest Saturday evening in Austin, Texas, police said. CNN

Apparently, CNN didn't see, or listen to, the video.

Perp didn't fit the narrative, Bobby.

#15 Also sounds like there was a second Antifa type that fired at the vehicle after Mr. Foster was 'stricken'.

#16 1) Dumbass joined a mob surrounding a car, while open carrying. He was the aggressor.

2) Lefties are waving his girlfriend around like she's proof he was an innocent cut down unfairly. But their own literature says he was "fetishizing" her, and it really wasn't a legitimate relationship.

#18 Among the very first things my mother taught me was to watch for cars before stepping into the streets.

I really don't get this idea of trying to block streets. As I later told my children, "Never argue over the right of way with something that outweighs you by a couple of tons."

#19 Where I live it's a given people stepping into the street aren't even looking. It's SOP from long before the current nonsense. You learn to anticipate their moves.

The success of their attempt to tear down civilization depends on their targets being civilized.

#21 Antifa/BLM plays at revolution. However, they end up sowing the wind and reaping the whirlwind. Rebels without a clue.

Foster Garrett did a dumb thing. He ended up dead. It didn't have to happen.

These rioters are being used. They ought to look into who is pulling their strings and go after them.

#23 Useful idiots are in plentiful supply right now. The crescendo of violent protests is being choreographed for November The strategy is Trump is a terrible dictator and SloJoe will make it all Obamaworld soft and fluffy again. What follows should be terrifying if you looked, so keep the propagandist allies on social media and the MSM pounding the drum of Orange Man Bad.

#25 As I read the article, the thrust was that the driver fired first. These are all lying pos’s.
