    I think there's a difference between someone seeking out protestors to run over and a vehicle being mobbed by an angry crowd. Slowly running a few people over is preferable to being a sitting duck for a mob. You sure as heck can't sit still for long and not expect your vehicle to be overturned by an angry mob. I think the cases we've seen with this wave of protests tend to run the gamut, though more tilted to the "seeking trouble" end of the scale.
     
    When I was in Berlin, my squad leader's patrol car (basically a Ford Escort) was mobbed by an angry crowd of skinheads. German police responded with riot units to extract her. That could have gotten ugly fast, and she was quite shaken by it.

    That is a counsel of despair Badger, and not likely to get something better in 2024.  If folk don't like either option and wait for something better, nothing is likely to turn up.  If people counsel despair, nothing is likely to change.
     
    Democracy, like a vegetable garden, takes work to make it flourish.  Voting at every election is like seeding the plot and ignoring it until harvest time.  It is unlikely you will go back and find any tomatoes, potatoes or carrots, just a bunch of nettles and weeds.
     
    We have gotten lazy, expecting the system to throw up good, principled candidates when experience is telling them that is not the way to get elected.
     
    What is needed is not new systems or rules but a deeper engagement by the electorate.  of course, it might take a new system to garner that engagement.
     
    We get the politicians we deserve.
