Unbelievable footage shows what appears to be a deliberate strike on a crowd of pedestrians yesterday in New York City.
While the mainstream story is that this was not terrorism, the footage may show otherwise. This man blew a point 0.0 upon being detained. Meaning that regardless of the mainstream story, there was no alcohol involved.
Now the question becomes, just what was the motive? The driver is a Navy veteran and has been previously detained on charges including two DWI’s, and was held in a naval prison.
New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio, said that authorities were none the less “reinforcing key locations around the city” out of what he called “an abundance of caution.”
The New York Times is reporting that Richard Rojas the driver of the Honda Accord appeared to be under the influence of drugs;
The driver of the Honda, Richard Rojas, 26, a Navy veteran from the Bronx, had a history of arrests for drunken driving, said officials, moving quickly to assuage fears of terrorism.
“Based on information we have at this moment, there is no indication that this was an act of terrorism,” Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters at a news conference near the scene of the rampage.
Mr. Rojas appeared to be under the influence of drugs when he mowed down the crowds, according to several law enforcement officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a continuing investigation. Under questioning by investigators, he rambled and talked about various things, making some statements suggesting that he might have wanted to provoke the police into killing him, the officials said. – NYT
With no indication of terrorism and no actual evidence that the man was drunk other than hear-say, there is a slight indication that the man could have been on drugs. But far more interesting is the BBC report, claiming the man was ‘hearing voices.’
Was Richard Rojas being demonically influenced? Law Enforcement sources are claiming that Rojas stated that he was both hearing voices and that he was “just rambling and saying crazy stuff.”
