Now that we know it was a german citizen, what does OP have to say about this? Do we need more stringent surveillance of people born in the US? Perhaps the FBI should be investigating families who are not recent immigrants or children of immigrants, since clearly it is the people who have been here the longest who are the most likely to commit terrorist acts. That's what this case has shown us.
I am quite suspicious of the daughters of the american revolution. That is probably a group comprised of people who very likely could be terrorists. Their relatives have been here forever, they aren't immigrants (not recent, anyway). How can we trust the DAR?
Well, they are descendants of participants in a violent secessionist movement. And they have 'revolution' in their name. Probably merit watching.
True, it's newsworthy. But it is nonetheless interesting how the story becomes less interesting if and when it turns out it was anything other than Islamists. It drops one notch if it's a right-wing white guy, another notch again if it's a more obscure issue (e.g. someone angry about something that doesn't fit into the standard political categories or which doesn't even make any sense)...and becomes a total non-story if it's just another example of how lethal motorised vehicles can be and how inept or reckless or mentally unstable so many of their drivers are. Yet the dead remain just as dead.The OP is obviously part of the New World Alt-Right order of course. That's how he managed to pull this off. Considering the past regarding how terrorism was done, it is news whether you like it or not. No one said it's terrorism but the idea of NOT covering this is idiotic to be charitable.
For me it may yet be evidence of the need for more car-control - i.e. the need to do more to prevent cars accessing areas where pedestrians gather. Even without terrorists, that would still be worth doing.
