Trucker who drove into crowd of George Floyd protesters reaches deal to have charges dropped

Bogdan Vechirko, 36, admitted to plowing his semi-trailer truck through a bridge full of protesters last year

.Mr Vechirko told investigators that he was in “kind of a hurry” and was trying to “scare” protesters out of the way.His lawyer, Mark Solheim, told the court that his client’s driving actually saved lives.“The social media videos make clear that Mr Vechirko was faced with a terrifying situation, yet still made efforts to safely remove himself and his tanker from the situation without catastrophic injuries or death,” Mr Solheim said.

One of the protesters who narrowly avoided Mr Vechirko’s truck, Bennett Hartz, didn’t see it that way. Mr Hartz told the court that he still suffers from nightmares and post-traumatic stress due to the incident, and called it a “miracle” that no one was killed. headtopics.com

Or does the guy need a more extensive criminal history before being portrayed as the victim Surprise Surprise What a surprise. Of course. If he was Black they'd have given him 10 years.

Bullshit. Instead of stopping, “His lawyer told the court that his client’s driving actually saved lives, that Vechirko was faced with a terrifying situation, yet still made efforts to safely remove himself and his tanker from the situation without catastrophic injuries or death” WTF This is exactly a copy of what’s happening in Israel again Palestinian!! 🍎 never falls far from 🌳
