The NYPD confirmed that one person is in custody after a vehicle hit pedestrians and cyclists, leaving several people dead and others injured in New York's Lower Manhattan area. Police also initially responded to reports of gunfire. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio calls the incident "an act of terror."
I wholeheartedly agree, vehicular homicide is nevertheless homicide, and its aimless, haphazard nature would seem to instill terror much like rogue airliners.
Update (11/2/2017) I'm completely dumbfounded to discover that the driver hailed from Uzbekistan, my Word, he was a follower of Muhammad. he conformed to the Religion of Peace. Being human, a pattern recognition machine, I sense a recurring phenomenological theme. One occurrence might be a freak one off, September 11, 2001. A second point defines a line, Ft. Hood. "Allahu Akbar," anyone, anyone, Bueller, Bueller.
This is the third point, that confirms a pattern; the Religion of Peace strikes again. Note: I was utilizing the rhetorical device of irony, I was not dumbfounded, I suspected he was an Islamofascist all along. ISIS is even taking credit, As my German Grandma would say, "Achtung liber," which roughly translated is "Warning in a familiar way," and an expression of caution, like, "look out."
