“intended purpose unknown”
Let me make an educated guess. . . .
Come on down! If the mental cases, thugs, drug addicts, scammers. drunks and straight-up morons don’t get you the heat, mosquitoes and flying roaches will.
“Aggressor”? Is that a grown-up “teen”?
Mrs. abb & I just returned yesterday from a 5 day stay in N. O. The restaurants are to die for. Best food on the North American continent, IMO.
President Obama is there?
No flying roaches.....he would smoke them up.
” To die for” may be more literal than you know. People are getting robbed and assaulted in the Quarter on a daily basis. I wouldn’t go down there without armed bodyguards-and I was born here.
LOL, No, thank God. But he’d fit right in attitude-wise, so would his snarling wife.
They said he was a Jehovah’s Witness with no criminal record
Oh OK, guess it's all cool then.
And what about the taxi driver who drove down a sidewalk in NY? Cab Jumps Curb, Hits 4 in NYC; Man, Girl Killed; 2 Injured
THESE ARE ALL JUST COINCIDENCES, FOLKS!
I picked that up too. Less “provocative” than terrorist, lunatic, or home brewed jihadist. Lunatic has my vote since he certainly hadn’t thought things through, fortunately. If he’d set off his bombs first it could have been much worse.
He has a mental illness. You don’t say...
It’s fortunate in a way that this guy made the somewhat inexplicable decision to attack an airport security station, instead of something softer and more vulnerable like a mall or a school.
Says he killed one of the other cops. One is in hospital in critical condition.
No, it doesn’t look like “an ATTEMPTED SUICIDE TERRORIST ATTACK by a Jihadist cop” to me.
