    Police say the officers in the area were trying to redirect the marching protesters along a faster route back to the park where the rally was held earlier in the day. The scene, they say, escalated after one of the protesters busted out the cruiser’s back window.

    “There is this loud crash or bang to the rear of the police car. And again in their mind, as according to our investigation, they believed they could be shot at, or were being fired upon and because of that they had to take quick, evasive action,” Police Chief James Craig told reporters Monday. “When you talk about training, if you run into an ambush situation the proper course is to get out for your safety and that is exactly what these officers opted to do.”
    He also said there were "repeated efforts by at least some of the 25 to 30 [protesters] to gain access to the inside of the car where the officers were located."

    Sounds like a reasonable response to me.

    Sounds reasonable to me. I can't help but wonder how many civilians have ended up behind bars after being faced with similar fears and circumstances.

    Several states have passed laws to protect drivers from any liability when protestors block roads - the drivers are permitted to 'push through' the crown in order to escape.

    Seems like blocking a car that is legally using the public roads is unlawful restraint and attempted kidnapping, along with assault when they begin smashing the car. Driving away to prevent the completion of these felonies seems reasonable for anyone. I promise to stop throwing out my Jury duty notices from now on.
