Viral TikTok videos claim to show a long line of trucks who are ‘boycotting’ Colorado by driving round it and refusing to enter the state over the 110-year jail sentence of a fellow driver who caused a huge crash that killed four on a Colorado interstate.

Rogel Aguilera-Mederos, 26, was driving a semi on April 25, 2019 down Interstate 70 in Lakewood, Colorado, when he crashed into two dozen vehicles – including four other semi-trucks stuck in rush-hour traffic. The impact caused a fireball explosion that incinerated cars and trucks and killed four people.

According to TikTok videos, fellow drivers are now refusing to enter the state as a way to denounce the sentence they’ve deemed harsh and unfair.

Here’s an alternative to “jury nullification”.

Wonder how long before Colorado folds?

I bet it’s less than a week.  Imagine gas stations with no gas or food stores with no deliveries.

And, I would want to be a driver that crossed their picket line. 

Last time I remember anything this big was when the movie Convoy made a laughing stock of all the police that hassled truckers with lame tickets.

Nolte: Six Thoughts About Alec Baldwin’s Claim He Didn’t Pull the Trigger
JOHN NOLTE 4 Dec 2021

Before Alec Baldwin’s Thursday night interview with George Stephanopoulos (D-ABC), I expressed my skepticism at the actor’s claim he did not pull the trigger on the gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza.

Now that I’ve seen the full interview, I have even more questions.

An interesting analysis of the accident.

I’m not sure we are ever going to know for sure what happened.

So sad.
