A couple of good old boys in Maryland decided they would let some of the Black Lives Matters protesters in Hagerstown, Maryland know what they think of their protests. So, one followed the other’s truck, which was a diesel truck and they proceeded to spew black exhaust smoke across the entire group of protesters.
Check out the video below, which was originally uploaded by Aaron Gettel and then reposted by a protest supporter, Lawrence Marley Hester. Fast forward to the 1:20 mark.
While scenes of violence and rioting have taken place in places like Ferguson, Baltimore, New York and Charlotte, these guys found a way to respond in non-violent manner. I agree, it may not be a charitable way to do things and will probably do nothing but stir things up more, I did find it hilarious.
Apparently, what the truck driver engaged in is what is known as “Rollin’ Coal.” According to Fury.News:
If you tune the engine on a diesel truck a certain way to “trick the engine” into needing more fuel, the result when you hammer on the gas is a huge plume of black smoke that blasts out of the tailpipe of the truck.
