Thanks for your service, bro!

Free Rojas!!!!!
Sad that this happened. I read that he was dishonorably discharged from the military as he had incident (drinking?) while serving.

Video of the attack (Warning Graphic)

https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=d3e_1495190603

This was 100% intentional and 100% a terror attack.

The NYPD now admits he was not drunk and they "suspect" drugs but are waiting for test results.

Source: https://nypost.com/2017/05/18/times-...-to-kill-them/

Within 5 minutes the city made sure to say "He is not muslim so this isn't a Terror attack!" Wow that was quick. Then about half hour later, "Wow he was arrested twice for DWI so that's what caused this!"... well now he wasn't drunk. "Must be drugs!"... Not even confirmed yet...
Now they are saying "This was a sucide by cop attempt and he was a crazy former Navy sailor who was dishonorably discharged!".....

Let's see what tomorrow brings. Boy the Mayor and PC office are doing a hell of a job saying anything other than Terror Attack. You know because only Muslim's can be terrorists...

This guy was high on k2/spice and just lost it, GTA style.

What a monster? He looks like he was going to work, or was on a break. It would have been nice if he got a good beatdown, the public would have applauded a lynching!

They really gotta get rid of these synthetic drugs, very bad news.

People are using it to escape blood testing or just cant get some weed. Prisons, methedone patients, old wild street junkies and teens are messing with a very dangerous substance.

God bless the victims and there families. Hopefully more city businesses reconsider putting pilings around the sidewalks.

He could suffer from schizophrenia, and not taking his meds/mixing it up with something else. When mental illness is not kept in check, bad things happen. they did say they found traces of something in him.

the video does look like more than 2 dozen people were injured from this mess.

Why should they? If somebody wants to kill people guess what - they're going to kill people. That's life, can't bubblewrap the city

In general not to avoid something like this. I remember a couple of times when they did this and it was pretty fun.

In Rio de Janeiro, every Sunday they close Avenida Altantica from Ipanema to Copacabana so the people can hang out, bike, run, etc.

They've already closed Broadway, and now you want to close 7th ave too? No thanks, the traffic is bad enough as it is
