Car runs down Occupy participants; police let driver go

Not counting police riots like that in Oakland, this story is at least the third documented instance of politically motivated violence against the Occupy protests.
 
Last night, the driver of a Mercedes-Benz struck 2 participants in an Occupy Oakland march. According to a witness, the motorist intentionally ran down the protesters. Both victims had to be hospitalized.
 
And get this: Police let the driver go.
 
I get it now: People who camp overnight in public parks go to jail, but maniacs who deliberately run over protesters don't. All this accomplishes is to illustrate another reason why the Occupy movement simply had to happen. No wonder we get so much more public support than the Tea Party does.
