California Authorities Claim ‘Domestic Terrorism’ a Possibility in Car Attack

This is merely the latest evil to occur in this already bloody week.

As the world around us continues to reel from the Easter Sunday terror attacks in Sri Lanka, California police are sounding the alarm on a violent vehicle incident here in the US.

On Tuesday evening, a 34 year old man intentionally swerved his vehicle into a crowd in Sunnyvale, California.  While there were thankfully no fatalities, injuries among the group of pedestrians were severe, with several of the victims still hospitalized 24 hours later.

Now, police are saying that the incident may fit the profile for domestic terrorism.

The Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety identified the driver as 34-year-old Isaiah J. Peoples of Sunnyvale and released his mugshot. Authorities said Peoples may be facing attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and other charges.

In an email to KPIX 5 early Wednesday, the FBI said it was “assessing the situation to determine federal involvement. Should it be determined that a federal crime was committed, we will become more involved.”

Terror groups around the world have increasingly found themselves utilizing vehicles in their deeds, as the international community has become more adept at protecting themselves from traditional terror-plots involving firearms and explosives.
