What The Heck?
A van attack on the streets of Toronto, Ontario. It was just a matter of time before Canada started experiencing this world wide phenomena. Nine dead and several injured. The usual story of first responders arriving on scene, police taking down the suspect, everyone wondering what the mind set was that caused this event. What the heck IS in the minds of these misfits when they decide that injuring and killing perfect strangers is going to make THEIR world a better place? I'm sure we'll find out in a few days what his excuse was for driving a vehicle into pedestrians. Apparently it had nothing to do with terrorism...at least that is the current opinion of those investigating. That could change I suppose. What now? Are we all to stay off sidewalks. Are we to erect concrete barriers between roads and sidewalks? Do we need the army to patrol our cities? Do we make anyone wanting to rent a white van take a mental health checkup first? There is so much tension in the air you could cut it with a knife. Everyone looks at everyone else with suspicion. People avert their eyes on the street so as not to make eye contact with anyone else and perhaps arouse a violent reaction. What a nutty world we live in.
