The vehicle reportedly struck multiple pedestrians and bikers and caused at least two fatalities, with as many as six initially reported dead.

  • Earlier a vehicle entered the West St. pedestrian/bike path a few blocks north of Chambers St.
  • The vehicle struck multiple people on the path. There are several fatalities and numerous people injured.
  • The vehicle continued south striking another vehicle. The suspect exited the vehicle displaying imitation firearms & was shot by NYPD

They have committed treason and should be treated as such, deprived of citizenship if they have it, and refused entry.
Or, why not put them on Ascension Island or similar.
