Today I saw a car purposefully plow into #BLM protesters in Bloomington, IN. One woman was hit up onto the windshield as the car floored it into the dispersing crowd, which had gathered to protest NO ARRESTS in an attempted lynching. She fell off *two blocks* later. pic.twitter.com/PtF9c1bZkJ

Stewart explained the whole incident and how he fell off Bennett’s car.
They pushed into the woman that was with me, and when she pushed again, both of us went on the vehicle. I was just trying to block her vision so she would slow down so I tried to pull myself as far in her way to obstruct her view.
Christi Bennet has been arrested by Bloomington Police
The authorities found the Red Toyota from a motel’s parking lot in Scottsburg, Indiana, where Christi Bennett has also been arrested. Bennet is facing two counts of criminal charges for reckless driving and two counts for leaving the accident scene, which resulted in serious bodily injury, as per the Bloomington Police Department.
Twitter users are glad that Bennett has been arrested and was charged for doing such a crime.
She should lose several years of freedom and her license for life!

the increase in acts of violence by white supremacists is indicative of their level of desperation, in that they know their days are numbered #violenceisfear
