Now now lets not open a new can of worms, especially without any hard lined evidence. That is absolutely horrible though. I hope he rots in jail forever. Seems like the Honda Pilot held up well though. (Nice to know since we own one)

The last victim was hit right next to where I live. I can tell you that most of us here in San Francisco are completely shocked. Many people around the city were calling around their friends and family warning each other about this before the damn idiot was caught. I was told about him while he was still flying around the streets of this city. Thank god it all came to an end. Many streets around San Francisco are blocked off for investigation purposes.

Wow, what a shock. Was so busy at work today that I didn't hear anything about it until I saw this thread tonight.
Where he was finally caught is just down the street from where I live and I work out at the gym at the JCC where some people were also hit. Also, either Superfly or someone with the same name as him was quoted in the article. Small world.

Larry Jackson saw the vehicle driving the right direction on Bush Street, slowing at the intersection of Pierce Street as a woman walked in the crosswalk.
I've been flooding with calls and emails asking if it was me.
2 hours ago, I recieved a telephone call from ABC Channel 7.
They wanted to send a news crew out to interview me.
This is another Larry Jackson. I'd like to meet this guy.

Quoting AeroWesty (Reply 4): What on earth are you talking about? The article did nothing sensational with his name, they merely reported it.
Taking a tragic incident to unduly smear a person or institution is beyond reprehensible
No, the only thing reprehensible is you glossing over or ignoring the fact that this thug was an Afghan Muslim who rode over 14 San Franciscans. His family claim he was despondent because he recently got an arranged marriage. What bullshit!!
Even more reprehensible is the lack of MSM coverage and whitewash of this story. Video interviews say that this man called himself a terrorist.
Great. Kill outside a Jewish center in Seattle, run over people in SF, run over people in North Carolina also with an SUV and the MSM either minimally covers it or ignores/hides the Islamofascist angle. Guarantee you if some thug killed gays, blacks or other Muslims, THAT would be headline news.

Why the pavlovian rant? Where's the Islamo-fascist angle? Are you implying that some guy of Afghani descent can't just be a psychotic loon?
And unless you've been on another planet, this story has been playing non-stop on all the networks now that the Jon Benet thing is over and Nancy Grace and Greta vonfaceliften need something to obsess over.
And as far as gays, blacks and other Muslims go, remember this is San Francisco. If he hit 14 people, I bet he clipped at least several 'mos in the process, and quite possibly at least one black and/or a muslim (or a black Muslim...would that satisfy you?)
Take a valium, dude. And for Chrissake, do you really have to just cut and paste from the Muslim obsessed littlegreenfootballs.com?
Oh..I dunno...reflecting the recent administration line of fear-based WW2 imagery perhaps...? We're likely to see more of these rants...the racism and stereotyping and marginalizing....in the near future. I'm looking forward to the "commie plot" references-to-come, myself.

I really don't see that the man's ethnicity had anything whatsoever to do with this story.
So what if he was bunged over an arranged marriage, which appears to be a Muslim experience. People of every culture on earth have something to be unhappy about.
What you choose to do about that unhappiness is an entirely personal trait, and not a racial/religious/ethnic one.
Now if this had been a suicide bombing we might see some linkage, some commonality with mideast tragedies but this one is just about equal to Priscilla Ford's spree in Reno a few years ago. The story on her: http://www.blogofdeath.com/archives/001299.html
Now she was African American and a woman. Neither of those things had anything to do with her act. She was crazy and unhappy, those things did.
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.
