its actually easy to understand because its how they'd been used to treating all of their suppliers. for the most part it works fine cause the suppliers dont really have anyone else to sell to, but chip makers are different as they can sell to pretty much an endless demand.

it's really too bad that pointing out hypocrisy doesn't actually do anything. i wish at the very least it would stop people from treating hypocrites with respect like they are acting in good faith, but it doesn't even do that.

those videos are hosed up, especially the one from the roof when he hits that girls pom pom group. an ex of mine was run over by a truck on her bike when I was in undergrad and nearly died, and this dude definitely ran some of them over.

itís weird though, the 2016 attack in Nice France was way way worse. it really looked like the dude was avoiding most people, he even swerved to the side of the group of girls, and just buzzed most of the other groups. Iíd think a terrorist attack would be aiming for as high a body count as possible. dude in Nice killed nearly a hundred people and injured 500 more. so far in Wisconsin itís more like 5 dead and 30 injured.

guess everyone sort of got complacent with regards to vehicle attack security too. bet weíll see a bigger focus on that for a few years now.

I legit am curious why it wasnít worse though and Iím entirely expecting to never find out. did he lose his nerve? did he want to send a message but not really want to kill people? was he just delirious or hallucinating? that could have been so, so much worse. if itís intentional he has to know he is forfeiting his life regardless of how many deaths he causes, so it isnít self preservation. glad the cops didnít just execute him on the spot.

the fact that there arenít more stochastic vehicular terrorist attacks, which have a frighteningly low barrier to entry and constant completely exposed targets of opportunity, really is sort of uplifting though. it shows that a vanishingly small number of people want to do mass murders, because if you do want to do one itís trivial to rent a uhaul and do it.

reminds me a bit of the dude who drove a car thru the sxsw crowd 5 or 6 years ago. canít really assume motivation before the facts come out. people were speculating endlessly about the sxsw dudeís motivation and in the end it turned out he was just high as balls and panicked.

it wasnít that big, just a big empty urban delivery truck. It weighed 7.5 tons compared to an SUV that weighs 2-3 tons. in the end the failure mode would likely be the same: it overheats after the radiator gets smashed or the tires get shredded. or you get boxed in. you can do plenty of damage with an suv.

Jan 12, 2007




it was also designed to haul twice that mass. with that and better ground clearance and what not you're just gonna be able to do more damage with a big truck. not saying you can't also do horrendous damage with a suv or even a "subcompact" but yeah the heavier more robust vehicle plowing into a crowd doing more damage isn't surprising

dude was being chased by police as he fled another incident scene. police were shooting at his vehicle from behind, so of course he's fleeing for his life. he wasn't trying to drive into a parade. he was trying to not get murdered by police.

what he did is still heinous and he'll be charged with felony murder for the loss of life and agg assault for everyone else. the police will get more money for training rather than not pursuing feeling suspects in dangerous was.

police chases usually end up in tragedy and the cops never take responsibility for creating the dangerous situation. in Honolulu they caused a crash and then loving left and pretended like they didnít do it.

in another situation a pickup truck rolled over taking a turn at high speed and killed three pedestrians on a sidewalk. the cops also said they werenít chasing that dude at first either, but they were.

yeah this is basically what happened in the sxsw thing. the truck in nice that mowed down 100+ people was someone actually trying to kill people along a pedestrian boardwalk, with a bigger truck so it was a lot worse.

this and the sxsw thing are both just normal guys (who are probably intoxicated) running from the cops and driving thru a crowd for a block or two of a blocked off street, in a normal sized car/suv, as a result of that chase. both of those incidents killed 4-5 people and injured 20-30.
