California man who deliberately drove into crowd injuring 8 thought they were Muslims: police chief

Published

Authorities in Silicon Valley have launched a hate crime investigation into the driver of a car which rammed into a group of pedestrians, NBC Bay Area reported Friday.

“The Sunnyvale police chief says new evidence indicates Isaiah Peoples deliberately drove into a crowd of pedestrians based on race and ethnicity, and believed that some in the group were Muslims,” NBC Bay Area noted. The District Attorney is not officially calling it a ‘hate crime.'”

Peoples was charged with eight counts of attempted murder.

“Peoples, an army veteran with a history of post-traumatic stress disorder was on his way to a Bible class when he told investigators he intentionally drove into a group of men, women and children, injuring eight people,” NBC Bay Area reported, citing police.

“Peoples is a former Army sharpshooter who was deployed to Iraq in 2005 and 2006,” the station reported. “He showed no remorse after his car plowed at high speed into a group of people in a crosswalk on Tuesday evening in the Silicon Valley suburb of Sunnyvale before hitting a tree, Police Chief Phan Ngo said.”

The youngest of the eight victims is a 9-year-old boy.

A photo of the receipt then spread on social media.

On Saturday, George Conway drew attention to a specific passage of a new article from The New York Times about the intelligence community's efforts to counterattack the Russian power grid, in response to years of covert Kremlin attacks on our own:

“[O]fficials described...hesitation to go into detail with Mr. Trump about operations against Russia for concern...that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials, as he did in 2017 when he mentioned a sensitive operation...to the Russian foreign minister.” https://t.co/BXTjjXBmia
