How far would you go to make a point? So far as to stage a near-miss caught on camera during a TV newscast?

I'm not trying to downplay the heart of the story, a dangerous crosswalk, but look at the video and tell us what you think.

UPDATE: The TV station is apparently working diligently to remove this video from the web, so if the video directly below doesn't work, just scroll down! There are a few more links just in case!
