Unbelievable. A scumbag protester in Baja-California drove his speeding truck into a crowd of police officers:
GLOBAL NEWS – A protest against Mexico‘s 20-per cent gasoline price hike turned violent Saturday after a lone protester drove his truck into a line of police guarding a fuel distribution terminal in Baja California.
Federal police said four officers were injured in the incident in Rosarito, near the border city of Tijuana.
Video showed the small pickup driving straight into the line of riot police, then backing up and speeding off.
Largely peaceful protests against the fuel price increases continued elsewhere in Mexico Saturday, and looting seen earlier in the week largely subsided. But nervousness remained.
Officials in Veracruz, one of the states hardest-hit by the looting on Wednesday and Thursday, said some neighbourhood groups had begun to form patrols of residents armed with staves or machetes to ward off looters.
Veracruz Gov. Miguel Angel Yunes Linares said 532 people had been detained in his state alone and that social rumours of further looting – apparently unfounded – had caused “an artificial psychosis.”
I was so hoping a cop would shoot that guy before he escaped. I can’t believe he got away.
So I guess now vehicles are the tool of the terrorist or the radical protester.
