Breaking news from Time Square

A speeding car has plowed through pedestrians in Times Square killing 1 and injuring at least 12.



http://www.reuters.com/ar...SKCN18E2D1



It's being reported as a likely DWI and probably NOT terrorism.

"police said the incident did not appear to be an act of terrorism"


I do not know why they would say such a thing so early. But I am not sure exactly what they said and if Reuters quoted them correctly.


But speeding, going the wrong way, on a sidewalk? Seems absolutely deliberate--granted it could be a result of a disorder or an altered mind.

Now I say to be terrorism there needs to be some kind of social or political agenda. So it may not be terrorism even if it was a calculated act of (for now) Attempted mass murder.

Plus as any New Yorker, or tourist to the city knows, a lot of Times Square has been turned into pedestrian plazas, with little access to vehicles

What's DWI?
