WE’LL BE UPDATING THIS INFORMATION AS IT COMES TO US: The suspect in the Lower Manhattan terror attack is identified as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov from Tampa, FL. He’s a foreign national from Uzbekistan who came to America on a green card under Obama in 2010. He was living in New Jersey for the better part of last year. He was working as an Uber driver. His identification had expired yet he was able to rent a truck from Home Depot…
…He was shot in the stomach by the NYPD after running over pedestrians just two blocks from the World Trade Center Memorial:
THIS IS A DEVELOPING A STORY THAT WILL BE UPDATED: Terrorism has hit Lower Manhattan again…Eight dead and 15 injured after a terrorist ran over pedestrians in Lower Manhattan today. Horrible!
A BUS FULL OF DISABLED CHILDREN BLOCKED THE TRUCK:
A man in a rented Home Depot truck (reportedly rented in NJ) ran over people in the bike path in Lower Manhattan but was stopped by a bus full of disabled children. The terrorist then got out of the truck and started running around with a paintball gun and a pellet gun in each hand pointing at bystanders (see video below).
One witness wrote on Twitter, “Jesus! A car just ran over two people and then crashed into a school bus. I see two dead bodies and Citibikes on the floor destroyed.”
The terrorist ran around with a a paintball gun and a pellet gun in each hand:
The New York Police Department reported: The suspect had an imitation firearm and was shot by the police, although it appears the suspect survived that shooting. “The vehicle struck multiple people on the path. There are several fatalities and numerous people injured,” the NYPD wrote. “The vehicle continued south striking another vehicle. The suspect exited the vehicle displaying imitation firearms & was shot by NYPD. The suspect is in custody.
America has fallen asleep again…we are victims of our pc culture. Being honest and telling the truth about radical Islamic extremism will only help us prevent something like this. We MUST begin to address it and NOT tiptoe around it.
PLEASE PRAY FOR THESE INNOCENT AMERICANS:
