Our hearts are aching for the friends and families of the eight people mowed down Tuesday afternoon on a Manhattan bike path by a Muslim immigrant in a rented pickup.
The 29-year-old Uzbek native had planned to continue striking pedestrians on the Brooklyn Bridge on Tuesday, he told investigators, according to a criminal complaint.
Well, in the past two weeks, his administration has captured two apparent "bad dudes" - one in Libya, the other in New York - and in both cases Trump has continued Obama's policies to the letter. But with the filing of federal charges against Saipov that seems unlikely. In a flurry of Tweets, Trump called for a shutdown of the immigration program that brought Saipov to America.
The truck collides with a school bus near Chambers Street, injuring additional people.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving member of a pair of ethnic Chechen brothers who killed three people and injured more than 260 when they bombed the 2013 Boston Marathon in an attack inspired by the al Qaeda militant group, was sentenced to death in 2015.
Trump's repeated calls for Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov to get the death penalty could hobble prosecutors and undermine any attempt to execute him by allowing defense attorneys to argue that the potential jury pools have been tainted and the suspect can't get a fair trial when the commander-in-chief is calling for his head, former federal prosecutors said Thursday.
The cocky bastard wants to fly the black flag to celebrate his mass murder as he's recovering from his injuries!
Where was this anger when Stephen Paddock killed seven times as many people as Saipov?
It is after people move out of the region that they seem to become radicalized, Stronski said.
New Yorkers woke to a heavy police presence Wednesday outside the World Trade Center and at other locations around the city. He has not entered a plea in the case, and his attorney, David Patton, said they were not seeking bail.
"Send him to Gitmo - I would certainly consider that", Trump continued at the same press appearance, using a nickname for Guantanamo. Two months ago, he said, he decided to use a truck "to inflict maximum damage against civilians", the complaint said.
"He had the habit of disagreeing with everybody", said Muminov, a 38-year-old from Stow, Ohio, who just as Saipov once did, works as a truck driver.
Outside court, Saipov's attorney said he hoped "everyone lets the judicial process play out". The industrial conglomerate's stock has plunged 16.95% during the losing streak, the biggest nine-day decline since it plummeted 18.39% during the nine days ending March 9, 2009, at the depths of the Great Recession.
Democrats like Chuck Schumer have already denounced Trump's divisive reaction to the New York City attack. He said Saipov never spoke about ISIS, but he could tell he held radical views.
Although sanitized versions of these execution can be found on news sites, the full footage showing the killings is not readily available on the open web.
The attacker claimed to have terrorized New York in the name of ISIS.
The state of New York began installing concrete barriers to "enhance protections" for the bike path where the attack occurred.
"To associate Uzbekistan with terrorism is not the way to see the country, because it really represents a tiny fraction of what's going on there", Russell Zanca, a professor of anthropology at Northeastern Illinois University, told NBC.
