These protestors are violent. We’re out here trying to do a job, and their in the way. Why does this protesting have to be done on the interstate? Miserable excuse for a Governor in this state. Im siding with the driver again. The protesters had insurance i hope? They should pay! Thank God the driver wasnt injured.

Little Rock, AR – As reports continue to emerge this week of rioters targeting big rigs amid the social unrest and outrage over the death of George Floyd, truckers are being faced with increasing dangers.

Deadly force/stand your ground? But the few states that allow firearms across state lines, drivers havent done research or paperwork to be compliant w yhe law, thus they would save/end lives but fall to gun charges… &if dude wasnt looting how did he end up btw the doubles? At the least in &every protestor that disturbs a driver by approaching semi should be prosecuted for vandalism no matter the damage caused (attempt of theft or not)
Every one has the right to defend themselves from lethal harm. George Floyd had that right too and was denied that right by Excessive Police Force.
Truck drivers have the right to defend and flee from harm involving fear for their lives. Mobs have removed drivers and beaten them to death.
Mobs assume that risk of death by disabling truck safety devices in their attempts to gain access to drivers.
Me as a driver, im leaving the scene. If the protesters mean no harm, they wouldn’t get on top, inside, knock the glass out, or try to open the doors of my semi or trailer. If you think im waiting around for someone to do a Reginald Denny on me, their sadly mistaken. And to think that family has the nerve to file a lawsuit, is appalling to me anyway. He was back there looting with the rest of them. Why else be between the trailers? You shouldnt have been in the way, PERIOD! The family sounds like they want money. What if fedex had stopped? They would have pulled him out and beat him for sure. Family thinks thats ok though? They reported someone was pointing a gun at the driver as well. He did the right thing….get the hell out of there and dont look back. If they charge him, im going to start a protest, BECAUSE TRUCK DRIVERS LIVES MATTER TOO! As for the Kenan driver caught on the bridge with the tanker…there werent proper barricades up, or he wouldnt have gotten on the bridge. People were on top of a gasoline trailer and busting the glass in on the truck. They stole his wallet and personal belongings. Here again, i wouldnt have stopped. My life is important too. One spark could have ignited the gas, and the whole bridge would be a fireball. The media is to blame here too. He wasnt trying to kill anyone, or he wouldnt have stopped twice. He would have barreled to the far left at 60 + mph. All lies they told. We have to protect ourselves. Put zip ties around your glad hands so they cant easily be removed when you slow down or stop for a sec.

I always hate to see a persons life end but this trucker had every right to try to get to safety because he was under attack and this is a consequence of that attack. Note to self, if you don’t want to die, stay away from moving vehicles, better yet, go home and stop acting like fools. People have every right to defend themselves from being attacked and I can assure you that they will, that includes our EMS and police officers.
One of the guys involved posted about this on his Twitter account. Admitting what they were doing. I told him he is partly responsible for that man’s death!! After attacking the truck, did they really think yelling at him to stop was going to be effective?! This driver is by no means responsible!!
In the video that I saw, there is a possibility that the individuals climbing up on the passenger side may have bumped the door’s mirror. That would mean that the driver could not see very much out of his right hand mirror. He also blew his air horn signaling a warning he was moving.
How did the victim get on top of a box if he was not criminally looting?
WLG just wants to reach into FEDEX pockets instead of suing the other criminal looters.
