    When we get round to creating a rules/guidelines thread for the section, posting sources will most definitely be high up. As you would expect really from a News section.
    Good to hear. Thanks.

    There are reports that it was road rage
    He was mowing people down for ages in a large vehicle, it was a terrorist attack.

    As soon as I heard that piece of info this went from who knows to terrorist.

    NYPD have labelled it a terrorist attack because he 'made a statement that allowed us to call it that'.

    ABC News said it was 'Allahu Ahkbar'.

    Man, I'm not trying to be disrespectful to the dead here, but I just KNEW something was going to happen after the Russian-conspiracy charges. It all seems fishy nowadays ;//

    Ugh, here we go again

    The drumbeat of terror attacks has become so consistent and unrelenting that I'm starting to become inured to it. That's a very sad thing.

    Fake guns? Loser didn't even have the guts to kill himself after. Suppose it shows NYC's gun laws work.

    270+ mass shootings this year, vast majority committed by white men. Homicide rate 3x that of the UK. 700 killed by gang violence in Chicago in 2017 alone. I think America's got bigger things to worry about than Muslims. This is hardly even news considering how common mass killings are there.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this cowardly 'act of terror'; we live in a society where our intrinsic morals and culture are attacked; we must not succumb; we must not give in.

    I heard it was possible to focus on more than one problem at once.

    I think it's better to focus more on the bigger problems than the little ones.

    7 people dead, 15+ injured, driver reported to have shouted Allahu Akbar
    Or if we take the official line "a statement consistent with terror attacks" because people won't dare admit that it was an Islamist, that would be racist.

    Little doubt this will be pushed to once side to people can foam at the mouth over guns again despite the strict gun laws in NYC and New York in general, especially hand guns for the latter.
