    Headline above: “Suspect Arrested in Apparent Truck Attack on Cyclists”

    One definition of apparent: “seeming real or true, but not necessarily so.”

  • Because every story on this says that it appears that the driver of the truck did it intentionally, which would be an apparent attack?

  • AWwwww he’s so CUTEY-WOOTIE when he gets all over(t)ly pedantic!
    Wooos a wittle pedant?
    Thats wight! Our widdle HarryWichll, that’s who!

  • City Resident

    It appears that an automobile was used as a weapon. This is newsworthy and was correctly reported with the use of the word “apparent.” Of major concern (and not reflected by this headline) is that this was a hit and run. Hit and runs are a widespread societal problem.

  • City Resident

    Four bicyclists were hit and injured by a pick-up truck. Attack is defined as “an aggressive and violent action against a person or place.” No one implied that this was a terrorist attack.

  • Stuart

    No one implied that this was a terrorist attack.

    RichLL (“Harris”) likes to pick arbitrary definitions for words that suit his purposes and then pretend there are no other definitions. So here, he pretends that “attack” can only refer to terrorists so that he can try to crowbar this into a narrative about overreaction.

    Don’t take his concern trolling seriously though. This is someone who compared SFMTrA to terrorists; he doesn’t actually care about irresponsible comparisons to terrorism.

  • Corvus Corax

    Boy, did you call it right!

  • City Resident

    It was an attack. Once again, no one implied that this was a terrorist attack.

  • Corvus Corax

    This is another sockpuppet of RichLL

  • p_chazz

    The point goes to roymeo. Game, set, match.

  • Stuart

    Welcome to the club of people who hurt his feelings enough that he renamed an account after you: the “Harris” account is now sporting your name.

    Although not here… it looks like RichLL finally found something far enough over the line that it got one of his accounts banned from Streetsblog.

  • Can’t really get my goat when he’s cowardly got it locked down…how can I stress out about his madcap lulz if I can’t follow him around and angrily protest?

    Amateur hour.
