Pas plus pour le moment, sans doute une attaque à suivre, plus à l'abri nulle part.

L'info je l'avais entendue
Perso : je crois que les motivations étaient " mauvaises  voir plus "

partie de texte  le Dauphiné libéré

"Une femme de 18 ans a été tuée sur le coup et au moins sept des 22 blessés hospitalisés -parmi lesquels figure sa soeur de 13 ans- sont dans un état grave, selon les autorités"

Les blessés garderont des séquelles à vie, " si ils s'en sortent tous"

Ils parlent bien d'attaque pour l'instant pas reliée à Daesh mais cette ordure voulait bien tuer en masse.

Father of tourist killed in Times Square speaks out

THE heartbroken father of a teenager killed by an alleged drug driver in Times Square has spoken for the first time about his terrible loss.

Thomas Elsman’s daughters Alyssa and Ava were visiting the New York City tourist attraction when they were run down by a car alleged driven by Richard Rojas.
Alyssa, 18, was killed and Ava, 13, remains in hospital with serious injuries.
“Numb. There’s no words. I want to scream,” Mr Elsman told Fox 5.

‘I want to not be here. But I have other kids, I know I have to be strong in this.’
‘My first born daughter is gone. My heart died in New York yesterday.”
Mr Elsman told the network Ava has been told about her sister’s death.
“She’s just as shocked as we are right now,” he said.
“I’ve always told friends, ‘How do you handle the loss of a child?’ Now I’m in that same boat.”
He said his daughters loved to visit New York.
“This is their third trip out here, they love it,’ he said.
“Times Square is her favourite place. There’s no words.”
Rojas allegedly waited for traffic to move before making a U-turn and purposely driving onto the sidewalk, prosecutors said overnight.
Rojas, 26, appeared subdued during a brief court appearance where prosecutors detailed a felony murder charge.

Rojas told police after he was tackled following the mayhem in Times Square that police should have shot him to stop him and that he wanted to “kill them all,” prosecutors said.
He told police that he had smoked marijuana laced with PCP, according to a criminal complaint.
He didn’t enter a plea.

Rojas’s lawyer and weeping supporters had no comment. He’s due back in court next week.
Rojas drove his car from the Bronx to Times Square on Thursday, where he sped into the bustling Crossroads of the World, hitting nearly two dozen people on the footpath before steel security barriers finally stopped him, authorities said.
Eighteen-year-old tourist Alyssa Elsman, of Portage, Michigan, was killed in the crash.

Her 13-year-old sister was among the 22 injured, four of them critically.
The distraught father of Ms Elsman went to the police precinct where the suspect was being held early Friday and threatened to kill him, police sources told the New York Post.
He first went to Bellevue Hospital, where his 13-year-old daughter was recovering with a broken leg, sources said.
Completely destroyed at the loss of his other daughter, the man then went to Midtown South and began yelling that he wanted to kill Rojas,
The father had to be taken to Bellevue to be calmed down, sources said.
Rojas enlisted in the Navy in 2011 and was an electrician’s mate fireman apprentice.
In 2012, he served aboard the USS Carney, a destroyer.

Navy records show that in 2013 he spent two months at a naval prison in Charleston, South Carolina. They don’t indicate why.
Rojas spent his final months in the Navy at the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Florida, before being discharged in 2014 as the result of a special court martial, a Navy official said.
A fearless bouncer with more than 20 years’ experience helped bring down Rojas in Times Square.
Speaking to the New York Post just hours after the incident, Ken Bradix, 47, of Bensonhurst, recalled how he used his skills as a security guard at Planet Hollywood to subdue the crazed suspect.
“Once I heard, ‘Get him,’ I kicked into gear and then security came out,” the brute said, remembering how a traffic agent was telling people to grab 26-year-old Richard Rojas, after he exited his Honda Accord and started running around madly.

“I tackled him from his left side, and we both fell to the ground,” Mr Bradix explained. “There was an off-duty police officer who also helped me out, [helped me] hold him down on the ground, and one of the guys from CitySights … The cops came seconds later.”
Mr Bradix had been outside Planet Hollywood when he spotted the Accord ploughing people over.
“I saw the guy careening down the street, up on the sidewalk,” he said. “He crossed over 45th street and crashed into the pole, the car lifted up, spun around and crashed down on the rear wheels, and the car caught fire.”

Mr Rojas hopped out and started acting erratically moments later.
“The guy got out of the car, running, screaming — not any particular words — he was just screaming and flailing his arms,” Mr Bradix said. “He was running toward me.”
While reports claimed Mr Bradix punched Mr Rojas in the face and knocked him out cold, the bulky bouncer insisted this wasn’t the case.
“I did not knock him out,” he said. “It was just exaggerated.”
Mr Bradix, who has been doing security for 25 years, told the paper he’s used to dealing with out-of-control people like Mr Rojas.

“It’s not normal out here. It really isn’t,” he said of the Times Square crowd. “So, I’ve gone through a couple of things — but nothing like this.”
The bouncer added that at the time, he was just doing what he thought was right.
“I am not a hero,” Bradix said. “I was doing what I hope anyone would do.”
