^ FYI, the Staten Island situation is the result of a two-car accident and has no connection to Times Square.

Plenty of video of the Times Square incident going around. While he might have been intoxicated, it certainly wasn't a DUI (accidental). It was a deliberate act/attack.

You are correct.
He may have been drunk but this was not an accident resulting from impairment. He did it on purpose. Here is the video: LINK

No worries. I laughed when I read it. Thought maybe I had made decaffeinated coffee this morning and was missing something.

Deliberate or not I always felt you kill someone driving drunk you should get the death penalty.

He has admitted he wanted to kill them and was himself trying to commit suicide by cop. http://nypost.com/2017/05/19/times-s...d-with-murder/

For sure. It's not the first time. Last year they roughed up the media or something, but a USSS intervened and chewed them out. Those cops in this incident looked more like parking enforcement who got roped into working the event, and were totally unprepared to take Turkish Secret service on. If they had been real cops it would not have looked like that, at all.

I will say this......in the video I saw the one cop beating in the back the plain clothed guy who was carrying a gun. I found that.....interesting to say the least. An armed subject stomping on a dude and you merely use your asp. He obviously knew who he was dealing with

This whole situation is fucked up.

And I'm concerned why this isn't getting much media attention, that I've seen.

That was clearly deliberate, and his erratic behavior afterwards indicates this dude has some serious issues. All of which could have been resolved if someone had a quick delivery of some hot lead.
