Times Square Driver Wanted to ‘Kill Them All’

from the AP:

A man charged with slamming his speeding car into pedestrians in Times Square, killing a teenager and injuring nearly two dozen people, said he wanted to “kill them all” and police should have shot him to stop him, a prosecutor revealed Friday.

Richard Rojas, 26, also said he had smoked marijuana laced with PCP sometime before making a U-Turn onto the sidewalks of the bustling Crossroads of the World and plowing straight ahead into frightened tourists, according to a criminal complaint.

Officials are awaiting toxicology results, though Rojas “had glassy eyes, slurred speech, and was unsteady,” during his arrest, the complaint said.

    He’s right, cops should have shot him dead.
    And his criminal drug use should not be used an excuse, but another crime that should ensure that he’s locked up for life.

      What makes you think he’s Moslem? Or that he had any political purpose in attacking those people?

      What do you mean, “looks muslim”? What do you think Moslems look like? Islam is a religion, not a race, and there is no Moslem look. In any case his name shows that no matter what his religion might be, his parents, whose looks he inherited, were not Moslem.

    According to a prosecutor, the police should have shot
    him. Well, of course, who in their right mind would deny that?
    But, we see that in today’s mad day and age – what happens to a policeman when does that?

      No. The prosecutor didn’t express an opinion. According to him the police should have shot him.
