Herbie, my parents brought me home from the hospital in that car when I was born. Our family car when I was a kid. They're a blast at car shows, cruise-ins, parades, etc.
    They are just a blast..period. Thanks for sharing the pics.

    Uh, does he not know how to drive in reverse? He gave them all the time in the world to shoot at him coming, going, and while he was next to them while not allowing himself the opportunity to shoot back. While he was driving through them, he exposed himself and kid to them for the longest possible period of time. What if they scrambled to the other side where his grandson was and they shot up that side of the van.

    After midnight, you and your eight year old grandson need to be home. Nothing good happens after midnight.

    i thought the same thing, but i said i probably would have acted the same. how dark was it? how curvy was the road? how slow did he decelerate to before discerning a course of action. these are all things to take into account when weighing options on his split second decision.

    If that LEO had ID'd the 3 individuals he stopped that claimed not to have any ID they would have a good lead.

    I would have swerved around them if possible and if I saw them reaching for their weapons. I would make them apart of my car as I plowed on through them with no brakes. If I reversed and start taking fire and let's say crashed just like in the movies, I would then open fire on the three ghouls, eliminating them.

    The Deputy who let these guys off should at the very least be reprimanded for poor work. Three guys dressed in black with no identification should ring bells and a search of their person should be conducted. Get back rolling also since you're dealing with three weirdos.

    They could be a cult looking to torture the very first person who stops and rolls down their window. Get them out the car and kill them for a satanic ritual.

    I would have......i dont know. Faces covered, blacked out. Blocking the road at midnight. Sounds like reasonable fear for my safety at LEAST. Probably drawn to my lap and used some vulgar words to entice them to get the heck out of the way. And seeing as they were armed.........well lets just not think of what i may have to do next. Certainly a scary situation.

    All black clothing with faces covered...holding arms and blocking the road, is not a girl scout midnight cookie sales post.
    Hit the gas and scoot...call 911 when clear.

    So you're saying an LEO should be able to demand to see ID from any citizen he encounters?

    Yep, especially late at night. Then call police and ask why there were 3 speed bumps at the bridge.

    So Carolina-3 Men Block Road. Shots fired at van. What would you do?
    Human chain firing on my car? Then I'm pretty sure I'd explore the effects of 6500 rpms, as quickly as I knew how. And if it resulted in their close-up exploration of the minutest details of my hood ornament, so be it. Basically, "Hit the gas and scoot, afterwards calling 911 to report."

    I agree... I'd have either blown through or slammed the brakes and high-tailed it the other direction.
