#1 You want anarchy, you just might get it. Can't trust the police, and you certainly can't trust the politicians (from whom the police take their orders/guidance). So, people have to take matters into their own hands. But that's the trick (to the glee of the politicians). Taking matters into one's own hands shows the politicians the "lawlessness" perpetrated by those deemed as "the enemy" by the mayor's office, the governor's office, or by whomever. A vicious cycle that may not end well.

#2 Well, what would you do as the police? The rioters won't attack if they see the police stopped him. They have to get a statement. It should work out in the guy's favor I would think.

#3 And the guy didn't try to settle the whole thing on the spot like some other demographics might given that the arresting officers might or might not know the whole story.

Seems like the reporter may be trying to sow more discord among those who don't slow down to think about what may be going on.

#8 What would Michelle Malkin say?

Or that woman in Ohio who got tased for not wearing a mask out of doors?

#10 The alternative is much much worse.

#11 All decisions aren't binary. It isn't a matter of the good side vs the bad side, it's an on balance equation.

On balance is the social order better with police? Yes. On balance do I avoid them whenever at all possible without appearing suspicious? Yes.

#12 The alternative is much much worse.

Getting hit in the head with a baton or tased, or shot, I don't think it hurts less if the person doing it to you is not "authorized."

#13 Is there only one alternative?

#14 Looks to me like detained for their own protection. Likely the Prius was unsafe to drive.

This article confirms the stories about chasers going after escapees.

I had heard of chasing to harass, cause and accident, follow home, and/or get license plate for doxxing.

First I'd heard of getting boxed.

I know we're talking Prius vs. Truck large enough to have passengers in the bed, these people have decided they are out to hurt you - perhaps a little bump to the back on or behind the tire as it passes. Bonus points for doing so while the truck is coming about into your lane.

The problem begins when the driver doesn't commit to GTFO, the hesitation after clearing the crowd to go Full Escape allows the chasers to catch up.

They have to chase you. The bikes will catch you. Nobody is coming to save you.

#15 Reports say the driver was later released.

#16 Police answer to politicians. Like the FBI answered to Barry.

#17 Driver was "detained", not charged nor arrested, in order to get the driver away from the riot that was forming.

No need for the conspiratorial suspicions in this case. Stop fear mongering before you get the whole story.

#18 Exactly.

I get it, it looked a bit heavy after the police get involved, but they don't know the driver from a Fraggle, and even good people will be a bit hyped up.

I'd secure the scene the same way.

If they police had not got involved, the motorcycle would have harassed and tailed until more vehicles could get involved. I would put money down that Blamtifa had vehicles designated to catch squirters for lack of a better word, and I don't mean that as a disparaging word but as a synonym for survivor.

#19 Police Chiefs are political appointees and, therefore, tend to fluff their betters. Too many throne sniffers who cannot be trusted to support their personnel or charges.

Sheriffs are horses of a different color - they are elected officials who answer to the voters.
