1: Incorrect name- Incorrect identification ?
The alleged van driver- Alek or Alex Minassian. It seems that the media has settled on Alek. Despite early reporting having police services providing two different names/spellings. This is not the first time I've read of incorrect naming of a suspect. Is it just incorrect spelling? I don't know. Is everyone illiterate and can't spell a name correctly when proper ID is paramount?
Inconsistent name reporting by the same source
“There has been some confusion about the correct spelling of the suspect's name, spelled by some sources as Alek and others as Alex. The Toronto police have been inconsistent in this as well, the latest update suggesting the correct spelling is Alek.”2: Known to authorities or not known to authorities?
So far Canadian law enforcement is saying not know, but NYC Police Commisioner says the suspect is known to Police
Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton reportedly told MSNBC that officials in Canada said Minassian was known to authorities prior to the attack. However, Toronto Police maintain the suspect was not known to them before the incident.Toronto Police not knowing only informs us the police don't know him.
We aren't told if the suspect was known to RCMP or CSIS. Perhaps he was?
Why did NYPD commissioner say he was known to "authorities" prior to the attack?
What 'authorities' is he referring to?

Former NYC Police commissioner Bill Bratton states on3: The Ryder Truck
@MSNBC his sources in Canada say van driver in #Toronto was known to Police and now consider incident a terrorist attack. Motivation and affiliation unknown.
One would think with all the bad press Ryder has gotten for decades a rebrand might be in order? But, no. The ubiquitous Ryder truck. Present at the first trade center bombing, 1993.
Present at the Oklahoma City bombing.
"The 1,200-pound bomb was in a Ryder truck parked in a parking garage beneath the World Trade Center"
Ryder truck in Toronto
"McVeigh and Nichols removed the bomb supplies from their storage unit in Herington, Kansas, where Nichols lived, and loaded them into a Ryder rental truck"4- The cop doesn't shoot the suspect! - Does NOT shoot the suspect
Now this non action on the part of law enforcement simply blows my mind. The suspect has, according to reports, just run down a whole bunch of people. Intentionally. Gets out of the van, claims he is armed. Tells the cop to shoot him and the cop doesn't ??!!
A police officer has been praised for refusing to shoot a man seeking "suicide by cop", after allegedly killing 10 people in a van attack in Toronto.BBC
Dramatic video shows the officer, who has not yet been named, arresting Alek Minassian after a tense stand-off.
As the suspect shouted "Kill me," the officer replied, "No, get down."
The officer tells the man to "get down" and when the suspect says he has a gun, the officer repeats: "I don't care. Get down." The suspect was then arrested without shots being fired.That seems so very unlikely if we are to take this story at face value.
A couple of thoughts regarding the cop choosing to not shoot the perpetrator though he claimed to have a gun in his possession:
I: As I said in the comments "The fact that the cop didn't kill the guy, seems possibly to have been done to redeem the cops from there pretty well deserved bad reputation"
II: This next reason seemed so obvious after I heard someone actually say- well this is Canada we don't go around just shooting people- to which I replied Sammy Yatim and the TO police?
Not only was young Sammy gunned down-then shot in his groin- and then, to add insult to injury, tasered multiple times- So that's a load of shit that 'we don't go around shooting people'- However this plays into the "Canada the good" vs "US the bad" memes that are endlessly spread by very ignorant (lacking in knowledge) persons in Canada
5- The curious uploading and just as sudden take down of a very suggestive and highly convenient to specific narrative creation face book post or account
Time of Israel
"Canadian media outlet CBC News reports that in a Facebook post, Minassian appears to praise Elliot Rodger, a California man who stabbed and killed three people and shot dead another three individuals in a 2014 rampage. However, CBC was unable to verify that the Facebook profile belonged to the suspect in Monday’s attack, and on Tuesday the page appeared to have been removed from the social media network"Daily Mail
Shortly before the attack, a Facebook profile with the same name uploaded a post which read: 'All hail the supreme gentleman Elliot Rodger'.Uploaded to Facebook just prior to the 'attack' and just as quickly taken down. No verification at all whose Facebook account this really was. And knowing what I do about facebook... (spook/intel connected) I'd call this bogus.
The post also mentioned 'incel', which is a term used to refer to men who have been made 'involuntarily celibate' because women continually reject their sexual advances.
'The Incel Rebellion has already begun! We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys! All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!'
6: Did you know the G-7 were meeting in Toronto when this took place?- That's right the G-7. It used to be the G-8, but, that has changed.
The presence of the G-7 in Toronto certainly informs us that there is an over abundance of intelligence agencies and their associates present and ready for anything in Toronto.
What's on the agenda? Reads like tyranny to me.
Wark said there appears to be a sense of urgency — but not panic — among the G7 nations as they look ahead to events such as the U.S. midterm elections this year and Canada's federal election in 2019.
The Trudeau government recently committed more than $500 million toward bolstering and reorganizing the country's cyber defences, and pledged an additional $200 million toward better signals intelligence at the country's high-tech overseas eavesdropping agency, the Communications Security Establishment.
"Russia, rightly, on G-7 Agenda"
|Fascist Nazi Freeland|
Because there was a really interesting connection to what was on the G-7 agenda and the Van attack incident- G7 security ministers gathered in Toronto discuss 'soft targets'
What is a 'soft target'? A soft target is one exactly like the location of the van attack!
And that's a bit too much of a coincidence
CSIS director briefing ministers today,(yesterday April 23/18) with attacks in unsecured public spaces on the agenda
The scene that unfolded on a Toronto street Monday is something straight out of a counter-terrorism officer's worst nightmares.
Security analysts call them "soft targets" — unsecured public spaces where a lone attacker can do maximum damage.
Those kinds of scenarios are on the agenda Tuesday for the G7 security ministers meeting in Toronto, along with other recent attacks in public spaces by terrorists.
Regardless of how that probe unfolds, the event is a reminder of the enormous challenges involved in securing ordinary public venues from extraordinary threats.
Gee, I would say that CSIS just guaranteed their funding. Right, readers? I mean you're all convinced of the need to have your liberties further curtailed?
7 : It seems the perpetrator was in the Canadian Military for a short stint-
"Alek Minassian was voluntarily released from the Canadian Armed Forces after 16 days of training, Sajjan said.
Sajjan also said Minassian was subject to a “rigorous” screening process before he elected to leave the force."
“When it comes to the selection process that the military takes, we go through a very rigorous process in terms of security, medical testing, making sure that the people that are going to be doing the Canadian Armed Forces have been thoroughly screened and in this case, that was done,” the minister said.Is it being suggested here that Alek was not mentally ill. Or mentally challenged? Or whatever? Additionally and correct me if I'm mistaken- I thought there were contracts involved in military service. Commitments let's say. Does anyone know?
CTV’s Mercedes Stephenson says she has learned Alek Minassian was a member of the Canadian Armed Forces for two months, between late August and October, 2017.
“For some reason, he asked to be released and he received a voluntary release, rather than a forced or medical release,” Stephenson told CTV News Channel.
“We don’t know what prompted him to ask for that or why that happened, and we don’t know much more about his training.”
8- The van 'attack' conveniently obfuscates or pushes to the wayside the sordid/sickening news regarding....
Greencrow has written on this topic and has promised to keep an eye on this news, which looks as if it will drop down the memory hole now that Canada has been subjected to the white van/public space attack."A Canadian man who spent decades working with children’s organizations and received the Order of Canada for his global contributions is now locked in a crowded detention cell in Kathmandu accused of having sex with minors.Peter Dalglish, 60, has been a leading international advocate for combatting child poverty. But early on the morning of April 7, police descended on his home in Nepal and took him away at gunpoint.
At the time of his arrest, two boys − one 12, another 14 − were in the house with him.
* Does the alleged perpetrator/patsy have mental health issues ?
* The idea that the van was self driving or being driven, remotely, by some one else has also entered my mind- the technology is available, obviously.
* It's a mistake to believe that since this hasn't had the terror attack label attached to it, means it's not one. It is a terror attack if the populace is terrorized- Which it is!
This is indeed an attack undertaken to induce terror. Here's what I said to Northern Truthseeker yesterday-
Penny said...there is always something to be gained by these types of attacks even if it is only to terrorize the populace and keep them dependent/complacent and compliantI'd say the van attack is "mission accomplished" hattip Donald Trump/GW Bush
