43. THANK YOU, Mrs. Matt
There's a real "blame the victim" lynch mob here on DU.

There's exactly one criminal here: the self-important brute who thought some minor traffic mishap was worth committing attempted murder for.

I don't care if the woman started swearing at him instead of apologizing to him.

There was NO justification for his throwing her onto the highway, which could have killed her.

I hope they catch him and charge him with attempted murder, because that's what it was.
