    Up to 12 injured as Detroit police car charges into crowd of screaming protesters before speeding away with demonstrators STILL clinging to the hood

    Witnesses said car hit 10-12 protesters as it went forward, trapping man on hood
    In the clip, one man manages to roll out of way of the car's encroaching wheels
    One witness, who shared clip, dubbed it 'reckless' and a 'clear act of aggression'

    This is the horrifying moment a police car charges into a crowd of screaming protesters in Detroit before speeding off with demonstrators still clinging to the hood.

    Witnesses said the car hit ten to 12 protesters as it surged forward causing multiple injuries.

    The driver then swerved to fling one demonstrator off the hood, onlookers claim, in the incident dubbed 'reckless' and a 'clear act of aggression'.

    The real crying shame is how all those young punks are acting like animals. This country has really gone to hell.

    Given a few more moments those animals would have smashed out the windows and attempted to pull the officers out to assault them I bet.

    Zero "you know what given" for those hooligans well being.

    If you don’t want to get hit by a car, don’t stand in front of a car. Duh!

    It's a "Have it your way" situation, from what I see. Don't want to get injured by a motor vehicle on the roadway? Don't stand in front of one.

    Maybe gas pedal got stuck. Still....A Legend is born. Tough town Detroit, Detroit PD definitely Major League.

    OK I saw the video. He was surrounded, in fear for his Life. Screw the anarchists and murderers. All criminals. Maybe an accident case report with the rioters in the #1 spot.

    Those "protesters" were asking for a joy ride. They got it.

    Perfect! I hope more cops start doing this. Which will lead the way for more citizens to pull it off. Which may lead to less of these folks blocking up the roadways in the first place. I kinda wish he would of ran a couple of them over real good like. Examples need to be set IMO.

    Don't block the roadway....especially if there is a squad car involved. How dumb are you?

    If only there were separate, designated paths for pedestrians as well as motor vehicles, this all could have been avoided.

    Perfectly reasonable response to the situation. No one has the right to surround a vehicle and threaten the occupants, police or otherwise.

    Police car did NOT "charge" into protestors, and did NOT "speed" away in that video. Cop started and stopped to give people plenty of time to get away from the car.

    Oh well. That headline and article is what I would expect from the media.

    Beat me to it. Only a [email protected]$$ Brit rag like the Daily Mail would describe that low speed impact maneuver as a "charge."

    Some "peaceful protestors" got hit by a car when they were blocking the street and attempted to swarm the vehicle?

    Looks like he tried to get them off rather than run them over. Multiple times.

    Maybe had a hot call come in and didn’t have time to wait them out.

    I call “less lethal” at that speed anyway.
