Attack in San Francisco - 1 dead, 14 hurt
One man has died and at least 14 people were injured when a Fremont man purposefully drove his sport-utility vehicle onto sidewalks and crosswalks in San Francisco and Fremont today, according to San Francisco police.WHAT IS NOT BEING COVERED
The victims appear to include a Fremont man, a 78-year-old man who was using a cane to cross the street when he was struck, and a woman in her 70s. Earlier reports that a child was injured was incorrect.
``It's one of the craziest things I've seen in my years on the force,'' said San Francisco police Sgt. Neville Gittens. ``This individual was driving around the city mowing people down.''
The driver was in police custody. His name was not immediately released, but Department of Motor Vehicles records show the license plate on the SUV is registered to Omeed A. [Aziz] Popal of Fremont.
Heard on the Hugh Hewitt show, callers from the area are saying the area the driver targeted is heavily Jewish. Infact, one victims was run over right in front of the Jewish Community Center.
Will this be as ignored as the slaughter at the Jewish Federation in Seattle?
Do read the post just below this one.
