Advancing at slow steady pace seems to be getting people shot. I think ,as lawyers[ ], we all know that should give people reason to fear for their safety, if stopped or forced to drive slowly by a mob.Simply advancing forward at a slow but steady pace is going to accomplish the task. No need to get overly aggressive; just proceed at a walking pace. They will either move or get moved. Doing some stupid teenager shit like dropping the clutch and going WOT is a great way to get into a nasty legal mess. No need to try and hurt the protester; put the decision in their hands and hope that self-preservation instinct kicks in. And get out of there before your vehicle gets surrounded.
I've seen my old man use oven spray to remove paint. I wouldn't want to use it near my own vehicle, except as a last resort. Also, have fun explaining that particular choice in front of a jury.
20-something white women are scary in a protest/riot situation. Just look at all the videos and mug shots from the past few weeks. The term "irrational" doesn't even begin to cover it.
