    Numerous killed in Toronto van attack

    I used to work very near this attack. Some say as many as five are dead. Looks like terrorism to me.

    Nine dead

    Just glad today Toronto has a sober/smart mayor
    in John Tory to be there for the people of his city.
    Unlike the "drunk/drugged up loser" Rob Ford was.

    Terrible. Just watching the news, happy to see John Tory out in the community. So far they seem reluctant to call it an act of terrorism, though I'm sure it is. It will be awhile until we get answers.

    Just watched the video, wow, the Toronto Police are nice. Citizens are a bit clueless about staying away from an active crime scene. If I saw a wrecked van, on the sidewalk, with weapons being pointed around, I'd haul ass the other direction. Bad situational awareness or heads in phone.

    Glad they took him alive. He obviously wanted the police to kill him. Now he can be punished.

    Seems to be an Elliot Rodger type situation - a young man who kills a bunch of people because he couldn't get laid ???

    Nobody wants to outlaw all white vans.
    Just the white assault vans - you know, the ones with automatic transmissions and high capacity fuel tanks.

    Nobody needs a killing machine like that.
    Everyone could get by just fine driving a Cooper Mini and pulling a trailer or a camper if they have more than a couple of passengers to drive around.

    Van culture, that's what it is.

    If they won't ban them outright, at least do something to make them less lethal.
    Square wheels - square wheels is reasonable; as all reasonable people will agree.
    Anybody who doesn't agree with that just isn't being reasonable - they're nothing more than pawns of the Van Culture and the powerful round-wheel lobby.

    Think about it - every time there is an attack with an assault van - what's the common denominator?
    Round wheels.
    Every single time, they have round wheels.

    That's the point.
    Sounds very familiar though...

    If the idiot here in Toronto had a AR-15, the body count would have been much higher than 9.

    I actually laughed at CNN as the story was trickling in and they ran the video of the officer and the suspect - and all these talking heads saying he had a gun - and immediately I thought - nah - not in Toronto and not the way he was pretending to draw a gun from a holster and the officer not reacting - all the while this running mouth was commenting on why the officer "did not return fire" and blah blah blah - like everybody in Canada was strapped like your "average American".

    Still, that sociopathic human stain should get the first 10 years of his sentence confined in solitary 24/7 with crime scene photographs of his victims all over every inch of his cell.

    So apparently this jagoff was an Elliot Rodger fan.

    Elliot Rodger?! Seriously?? How much of a loser are you when THAT little creep is your hero?

    I see by his now closed facebook page he was a
    big Doug Ford fan and wanted him to be the
    premier of Ontario.

    Every cop who carries a gun needs to watch that video.

    I'm glad too, he deserves to suffer for what he has done and not have an easy way out. Maybe they could do studies on his brain and try and work our why these crazies do what they do.

    Apparently we must supply all males over the age of 12 with women (willing or not) to prevent the terrible incel terrorist threat.
    For which I guess we must blame the internet. AGAIN.
