The progressive news site Crooks and Liars have obtained video of “Occupy DC” protesters being run over by a driver, only for police not to arrest the person behind the vehicle.

According to C&L writer Tina Dupuy, “a silver Lexus sedan hit three protesters in the street.” As protesters voiced their displeasure with authorities’s decision to let the driver go, one officer replied, “They shouldn’t have been in the street.”
