If they'd just make it illegal to cross the street the problem would be solved

I don't see anything where the fact that he's a democrat is relevent here.


But its more of America continuing down a slippery slope.

Damn, Europe really is looking more attractive. You spend time in other countries, and you start to get a perspective of what the US public misses out on, because of the PC / Litigious culture here.

Why not ban it . . . . all our rights will slowly be taken away and it all started with the seatbelt law, mark my words. (or type in this case)
