Truck plows into crowd in Manhattan, multiple deaths

Looking at Twitter: 45 minutes before this was a school shooting in Downtown Manhattan, and multiple users are reporting gunfire in Lower West Manhattan around the same time (before the truck incident) I wonder if it is all related. It does not matter who executed this attack, it is terrorism.

It rammed into a school bus. :pb_cry:

I'm watching CNN and they are reporting that this is being treated as a deliberate terrorist attack. Multiple witnesses claim they heard the perpetrator shouting "allahu akbar."

The perpetrator is still alive, so hopefully that means the police can find out a clear motive.

It looks like someone rented a Home Depot truck and hit a school bus but the person is in custody. I hope this is just an isolated incident.

Would've been nice if he had responded that quickly after some other shit.

Well it looks like the suspect is Muslim. Otherwise I'm sure Trump would have had to wait to hear all the information. :pb_rollseyes:

I have lost count of how many of these situations we have discussed - just over the last year or so.

My heart goes out to everyone affected...

Oh, shit.  Yet another one.  My condolences to all who have lost loved ones and to the families and friends of the injured.

When will this end?  Rhetorical question.

What does he mean by ‘not in the USA’?

I’m genuinely asking as a non-American. I promise I’m not being rude or snarky. Clearly these types of attack do happen, so I don’t understand his comment. 

Please be kind with me, I could be having a brain fart because I’ve been up sick all night. 

Is it an anti Muslim thing? Anti immigrant?

I was confused by that too, but I think he meant something along the lines of, "We can't let this happen in our country!"

The country the suspect is from, Uzbekistan, is not on the travel ban list, incidentally.

I’m just reading our news - it says he drove through 20 blocks of bike lanes. I am very thankful the number of victims isn’t a lot higher.

Thanks - that makes sense. Glad to know I’m not the only one confused by it.

20 blocks is a really long way, especially in NYC.

That’s what I thought. Maybe the report got the number wrong. Things are often misreported in the early stages of events like these.

The suspect has been identified as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov of Tampa, Florida. Apparently that's an Uzbek name.

Trump is now being briefed on the fact that Uzbekistan is actually a country.

My local TV station's FB post's comments on this story are so horrific and unsavory .... I cannot believe what I was reading.  I had to close it.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
