Nothing says “We just want justice!” like beating up on a grandmother who was driving her granddaughter to a hospital.

Hundreds of people marched in protest to the George Zimmerman verdict on Monday.

“No justice, no peace,” they yelled as they walked from the Byrd Funeral Home in the 2500 block of Wheeler to the Southmore Street overpass bridge near Highway 288.

Just after 7p.m. Monday, the demonstrators spilled out onto the road and blocked traffic for about 15 minutes.

“I looked up and I see all the protesters, they’re everywhere,” said Georgia, who asked that her last name not be used. “So, we got into the traffic and they’re stopping us and not letting us go.”

Georgia was on her way to Texas Children’s Hospital in the Medical Center because her 7-year-old granddaughter was having an allergic reaction to some medication.

Georgia’s daughter was driving and tried to go around the demonstrators by driving on the grassy shoulder.

“One of them was hitting the windshield and I was just screaming, ‘We’ve got to get to the hospital,’ and they were screaming and chanting,” she said. “All I could think of was, I got to get my granddaughter to the hospital.”

“My mom rolled down the window,” said Georgia’s daughter. “She said, ‘We’re trying to get my granddaughter to the hospital,’ and a guy just started hitting her.”

A Local 2 camera covering the protest recorded the entire incident. On the video you could see Georgia sitting in the front seat of an SUV, she had her window down and you can see a man reach in and grab her. Georgia said she was hit.

“When we got on the road I told her, ‘Let’s call 911,” and I could feel I had been hit,” she said.

There’s video at the link, under the mild headline “Local family’s emergency trip to hospital interrupted by protesters.” The incident happened quickly because the driver made the wise decision to drive on the grass to escape the protesters. If she hadn’t done that, who knows what might have happened?

Naturally, the protest organizers told the news crew that their protest had been nothing but peaceful. The women they attacked are white, raising the possibility that this assault is a hate crime.

I wonder if it’s possible to sue protest organizers in civil court over any harm their followers cause? “No justice, no peace,” which the protesters were chanting in this case, implies that violence will ensue if the protesters’ demand aren’t met. The protesters aren’t even making clear and reasonable demands in this case. They wanted a trial, they got one, they don’t like the outcome, so now they want a do-over.

I do know one thing. This happened in Texas, where’s it’s unwise to reach into another person’s car without their express permission, and it’s even more unwise to assault grandmothers. Lots of women in this state legally carry those little 9 mm pistols in their purses.

Hat tip to Weasel Zippers.

This family, the man attacked in Baltimore and anyone else attacked by these "protestors" needs to find a lawyer to file a class actions suit against Al Sharpton, the NAACP and the rest of the race hustler crew. Surely there are some lawyers in conservative world who would take this case pro bono. Until the race hustlers have to face the consequences of stirring up violence this will not stop.

I think it is exactly what he wants. An excuse to declare martial law suspend elections to make himself ruler for life.

But then again I am one cynical sumbeech

In Ohio, our "Castle Doctrine" extends to your car. Attacking someone in their car is a good way to get shot.

And, frankly, that's what should have happened in this case. I'm sick of "mostly peaceful" protests that are nothing of the sort.

Strange, the article linked to in no way suggests that protestors "assaulted" the grandmother. Must be a miscommunication between the author and the headline writers... On the other hand, this clearly illustrates that George Zimmerman was right. Lame.

If EVERY PERSON who gets attacked by a group of black animals shouting "no justice, no peace" was to sue Al Sharpton PERSONALLY for three or four million dollars maybe he would get the message that it isn't in his best interest to rabble-rouse. Personally I think he belongs in the "projects" living on the dole.

The guy reaching into the car should have gotten one in the face. It was an assault plain and simple.

This sort of mini mob attack, is the thing I fear the most from this chaos, planned and carefully organized by US Government. It's the reason I carry a pistol in my car, and why the SUV has "youth bars" fitted.

There is no outlet for white law abiding citizens to speak with a united voice today. The race hustlers and their enablers either control the microphones at the major broadcast media and newspapers or at the very least, have their sympathy.
This prevents any kind of rational dialogue to take place which is exactly what these folks want. "No Dialogue, No Resolution." That is their real mantra and has been for nearly 50 years.

When Tavis Smiley, race pimp extraordinaire, whines that black men are viewed with contempt and a "menace to society", I wish someone would have the stones to use this story as demonstration...

If young black men want to act like animals, why should anybody view them with anything BUT contempt.

Seeing the Black 'outrage' and 'street violence' being expressed and perpetrated over the Zimmerman verdict can you imagine what would happen if the USURPER or the Racist DOJ Eric Holder were impeached as they so rightfully deserve to be.

Its just a thought but does anyone else share my fears that overwhelming Civil Unrest is the AIM of the USURPER and his corrupt REGIME as he could then bypass the Senate and Congress and declare Martial Law and rule by DICTAT.

It is part of their plan. If there is Civil Unrest, they get to "do something about it." Ever ratcheting down the screws of oppression. The Democratic Party thrives on chaos. Liberalism is a cult of hate and violence.

Lets look at two Court cases and examine the Black and Left Wing moonbat mentality.

First the OJ Simpson murder trial - the OVERWHELMING forensic evidence in this case PROVED beyond a shadow of a doubt the OJ was GUILTY - yet a mainly BLACK Jury acquitted him and BLACKS left wing moonbats cheered.

Second the Zimmerman trial - the OVERWHELMING evidence in this trial PROVED that Zimmerman was INNOCENT and NOT a RACIST - the MAINLY White all woman Jury agreed - yet Blacks, Race Hustlers, the USURPER , the RACIST DOJ Holder and Left wing moonbats cannot accept the juries decision and moronic fools all over the USA are demonstrating.

No two cases could encapsulate the state of Race Relations and the Racial Bias of Blacks in the USA more clearly.

As long as the Anise Parker administration is in charge of Houston, you can be assured that there will be NO accountability and that the "protesters" will get more and more emboldened. The lunatics are running the asylum.

Agree with those who say it is definitely not smart to reach into someone's car in Houston.
