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.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

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?
