the first one is an actual path (kinda, i guess) and has both ways and the other is just a bike lane in the street

Here's a photo from the scene (mangled bike on the path...SFW but spoilering anyway)...

Spoiler: show

And a pic of some bike path in lower Manhattan....which looks like it's somewhat similar at least.

So yeah, probably pretty tough to drive a truck the "right way" down that path.

no, not really. The path runs alongside the west side highway, with a barrier between, and allows for 2-way bike traffic.

The man wanted for what appears to be a random killing spree at a Colorado Walmart was arrested Thursday after an hourslong manhunt.

The suspect, identified as 47-year-old Scott Ostrem, was taken into custody this morning, according to the Thornton Police Department.

Two men and one woman were killed in the shooting.

The victims are Denver residents Pamela Marques, 52, and Victor Vasquez, 26, and Thornton resident Carlos Moreno, 66, according to the Adams-Broomfield County coroner.


Ostrem allegedly walked in the front door of the store in the Denver suburb of Thornton and opened fire, targeting people in the front of the store near the registers. He then exited the store, got into a red Mitsubishi Mirage and fled the scene, police said after reviewing security footage from the store. The motive for the shooting remained unclear.


Court documents reveal that Ostrem has a history of arrests and financial problems.

In September 2015, Ostrem filed for bankruptcy and listed his debt at a total of $86,000 and credit card debt of $58,000, federal court documents show. Ostrem's year-to-date income at that point was listed as $23,637, according to court records.

In 2013, Ostrem was arrested for driving under the influence in the city of Wheat Ridge, according to arrest records provided by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. He was arrested again that year for failing to appear in court.

In 1999, Ostrem was busted on a weapons charge, resisting arrest and assault on a police officer, court records show, but prosecutors dropped the charges in June 2000.

In 1990, Ostrem was arrested for harassment, and records show that he served a two-day sentence in jail after he either pleaded guilty or was convicted.


Whew, thank goodness this guy was able to still buy his guns.

Reports of 27 dead in a mass shooting in a church near San Antonio. I'm becoming pretty numb to this stuff I have to say. It's entirely out of control and it is gut wrenching seeing the same lame responses we get from the people in power.

It’s worth noting that if this shooter was dishonorably discharged from the military that it’s likely he wasn’t legally allowed to possess a firearm.

And in Texas that don't mean horsefeathers since dumbass gun nuts make it so damn easy for everybody to own any gun they desire.

Yes and I’m saying that a hero who helped stop the guy from killing more than 26 people is a badass. Get a grip.

He is not a badass. He didn't prevent jack horsefeathers. 26 people died. There's nothing badass about the guy that showed up late to the murder party.


You're mentally masturbating to the idea that the 27th person wasn't killed, yet 26 people died because of the dumbass gun obsession you promote.

Also I would like to mention if this jackass in NYC had an assault rifle he probably would have killed more than 8 with his Home Depot truck.

I see people on facebook saying killers gonna kill anyway and I just cringe.

Well, I'm going to get fired from my suddenly hard right boss because he was telling me there's nothing we can do about the gun laws and I said there has to be a ban on these weapons, something has to be done about crazy people getting these types of guns. He then told me Heroin is legal in some states and that the left wants Heroin legal because laws don't stop Heroin. I told him that was a dumb an [expletive] thing to say, not the best choice of words I know, but he was pissing me off and he just tee'd off on me. I don't know of anyone, even drug addicts, that want hard drugs legal including Heroin.

I know this board leans left, so does anyone here want Heroin legal? Anyone need a seasoned 20 year insurance professional in the Chicago land area? Because if he doesn't fire me I am going to quit. I'm not going to be yelled at for having a different opinion than him, or listen to his Alex Jones talking points. :banghead: :banghead:
