    Personally, I woulda just turned on my blinkers and moved over to exit the freeway. If the Trumpers refused to move, that's their problem, and legally, their fault for impeeding the flow of traffic.

    Just, be kind.

    According to Trumpsters, it's perfectly fine to use your vehicle as a battering ram and instrument of death if people are impeding traffic. So they should have just plowed full speed into those beta cucks.

    Regardless of who does it, it’s illegal. Cops, especially off-duty ones, don’t get to go around ramming people’s cars.

    I don't know where you live, but where I am you're not legally obliged to move over just because someone puts on their signal. I don't think it would matter though, as it would seem that the behavior displayed would constitute "Obstructing Highway or Other Passageway, Disrupting Meeting or Procession, and Stalking" at minimum under texas' penal code.

    WTF are you both talking about? There's nobody on the shoulder. Nobody's trying to PIT the bus. Are you both watching a different video?

    From the previously linked independent article:

    "Armed Trump trolls harassing Biden Bus on I-35, ramming volunteer vehicles & blocking traffic for 40 mins," he said, before accusing Mr Trump's son Eric of inciting "violence".

    It's a direct threat to someone under USSS protection. Harris, the potential Veep, was on that bus. If the cops aren't going to respond, I hope the Secret Service is irate.

    They were trying to PIT one of the Biden cars, not the bus.

This event should be a stark indicator to any conscientious voter, yet the comments in the tweet I linked are full of gloating Texans/Republicans gleefully rubbing their hands together.

    538 says there's a 60% chance Biden is declared the winner by 3am.

    Please, God, let it be true.

    The issue isn't that they weren't moving over. The issue is that they were matching speed to prevent the Biden Bus from moving over. The Biden Bus can always speed up or slow down (the latter is a great way to get killed), and the Trump cars would (and likely did but we don't have video from 100% of the time) have matches speed to prevent the Biden Bus from exiting the highway.

    Which is basically the definition of obstructing the flow of traffic.

    Further, if the Biden Bus had turned on their emergency flashers, then other vehicles are REQUIRED to get out of their way.

    EST or PST? It was obvious Trump won at about 9 PM EST on Nov 6...

    Harris was not on the bus. Several other Democrat leaders like Representative Doggett were, though.

    That's what it would have been in your hypothetical as you explained it: turn on blinkers, them not moving over. The rest of your post, yes, I agree with. I literally pulled up texas' legal code to show that there was no need to bring a hypothetical into the situation: they were already breaking the law.

    Ah, sorry I didn't see your green text in your post.
