A member of the “White Privilege Club” social media group was arrested for attempting to run over Trumpcare protesters in San Francisco with his motorcycle.
The motorcyclist drove at high speed directly at a group of demonstrators staging a “die-in” Wednesday afternoon to protest the Republican health care reform bill, reported the San Francisco Chronicle.
Some of the protesters were lying down, blocking Seventh Street near Mission Street for about seven minutes, when the man turned the wrong direction down a one-way street and drove directly toward them.
“He was revving and revving, he was gunning it, aiming at people who were laying down,” said witness Tracey Brieger, of Emeryville.
Demonstrators rolled out of the way, and the motorcyclist turned around and drove back toward them from the opposite direction.
“If you want to go to the hospital, here you go,” he yelled, according to witnesses. “You will have health care if you people stop protesting.”
The motorcyclist was quickly surrounded by police, who pointed weapons at him and ordered him off the motorcycle.
“You guys were blocking the intersection and now you’re not — see how that works?” the man said after he was detained, according to witnesses.
No fucking comment.
Giliell, professional cynic -Ilk- says
Funny how those dudes who actually try to kill people get arrested unharmed while black people get murdered because officers are afraid…
Yep. Probably won’t see much of a consequence, either.

Knowing cops, they probably had him in a circular cross-fire.
I wish to fuck some of those people had stayed prone, this asshole was just trying to play chicken. I’d love to see him try that shit in prison.
Is it me or do the cop and the perp seem to really be enjoying their encounter?
They were probably gonna have drinks later that night.
Genuinely surprised the police arrested him.
And that’s where we are now. When a white right-winger commits a crime, even right in their faces. I am actually surprised the police bother to care.
Nice protecting and serving there, McGruff.
