Eight people are dead and 15 have been injured after a truck mounted a bicycle path in lower Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon, mowing down cyclists and runners while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.

ABC News and other media outlets named the suspect as Sayfullo Saipov of Tampa, Florida. According to CBS News, the terror suspect is “Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, apparently from Uzbekistan.”
Saipov, mounted the bicycle path at Houston Street at 3.05pm and drove 17 blocks downtown, knocking down victims before coming to a stop at Chambers Street where he eventually crashed in to a school bus.
There were two children and two adults inside the bus at the time. They are among the 11 injured people now in hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
After coming to a stop in his rented Home Depot truck, the terrorist then emerged from waving a paintball gun in one hand and a pellet gun in the other.

He was shot in the stomach by an on-duty NYPD officer who was at the scene and is now in hospital under police supervision.
At a press conference at Police Plaza later, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio condemned the attack as a ‘cowardly act of terror’.
‘Based on the information we have, this was an act of terror and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians, people going about their lives,’ he said.
NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill confirmed the driver’s movements. He would not release his identity or nationality, saying it was too early in the investigation to share such details.
President Trump acknowledged the attack on Twitter, describing the perpetrator as a ‘sick’ individual.
‘In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!’ he said.

    Terrorists are not sick, not deranged, not “hopeless” or anything other than EVIL, which is why they randomly destroy non-Islamist human life while yelling that Allah is greater (than your G-d and culture).

  3. Let’s not forget the esteemed Democratic Senator from New York, the one and only Chuck Schumer (No applause please). In all his infinite glory and wisdom, he gave us the Immigration Diversity Immigrant Visa program.

    “The Diversity Immigrant Visa program, also known as the green card lottery, is a United States congressionally mandated lottery program for receiving a United States Permanent Resident Card. The Immigration Act of 1990 established the current and permanent Diversity Visa (DV) program.

    The lottery is administered by the Department of State and conducted under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) as amended by the Immigration Act of 1990. The lottery makes available 50,000 permanent resident visas annually and aims to diversify the immigrant population in the United States, by selecting applicants from countries with low rates of immigration in the five years prior.”

    What a joke. Now the joke is on the very people who put your sorry a$$ in office. It seems the bum who ran over all your innocent constituents was a winner in your lottery and entered the USA under your program, Mr. Schumer (You can applause now. but slowly).

    To this I say, Chuck U Schumer.
