I hate to say this, but there really isn't any way to stop such terror attacks. Basically, anyone with a drivers license or access to a vehicle can use it to murder, maim and terrorize. The Arab terrorist who injured me drove a small ordinary car into us, which resulted in one murder and some horrific injuries to others who had been innocently waiting at the bus stop.
The latest report from Berlin is that the terrorist hasn't yet been caught. That makes for a very dangerous holiday season in Germany, Europe and the rest of the world.
Terror and terrorising is becoming too easy. There's no need to purchase explosive or MacGyver a bomb. Just take your car, or the truck or any large vehicle you drive at work, and...
The modern world keeps getting more dangerous!
*Another really dumb and inaccurate headline. The trucks aren't the killers; they are the tool/weapon used by the killer/terrorist.
