To be real, I don’t even know what to say right now, man. Honestly, I can’t make heads or tails of this story, son. All I know is, Richard Rojas lost his fucking mind in Times Square yesterday. Apparently, under the influence of PCP, Rojas thought it was a good idea to run down pedestrians with his car. Ultimately, my thoughts are with all of his victims during their time of need and sorrow.
Now, keeping it a buck, I really want to know this man’s motive. So far, journalists have only discovered a little bit about the assailant. From what I’ve seen, Rojas is a Navy veteran from the Bronx, who’s been arrested multiple times for drunken driving. In addition, his family claims that he’s been different ever since he returned from the Navy. According to their recollections, after his tenure in the military, he began abusing alcohol and weed.
In any case, Rojas has a history of being violent. For example, during his time in the Navy, he attacked a cabdriver instead of paying him. Also, he’s made numerous threats towards law enforcement. With all of that being said, I have no idea why this fucking guy was allowed behind the wheel in the first place. I mean, he’s clearly unstable, man. Now, fast forward to yesterday, Rojas took his Honda Accord, hopped the curb and began to rampage. This resulted in the death of Alyssa Elsman and the injury of another two dozen people.
All in all, in my eyes, Rojas needs therapy AND prison. While I do believe there’s something wrong with this dude, I also believe he needs to pay for his actions. *Sigh* This is fucking ridiculous, man. Much love to all of the people who were unfairly affected by his carnage. In the end, it’s a damn shame that people had to suffer under such random circumstances. LC out.
