Man Allegedly Plowed Pickup Truck into Picnic Birthday Party ...

A man in Chicago, Illinois allegedly plowed a pickup truck into a running club that was holding a picnic birthday party. Police say Timothy Nielsen, 57, jumped a curb to hit the picnickers, striking a 42-year-old woman. “The victim was briefly trapped underneath the vehicle and sustained serious injuries from the collision,” authorities said in a statement obtained by Law&Crime. The defendant is charged with four counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Witnesses at the scene said a confrontation happened before the near-fatal attack. About 10 to 15 friends were holding a cookout. Troy Brown, who belonged to the group, said they were part of a running club holding a belated birthday party. He said there was shouting with the driver of the truck before the incident.

Brown said everything happened fast, and he did not quite catch what was being said. But Rob Lopez, another member of the group, said he heard the driver say “f— Asians” or “goddamn Asians” to an Asian friend before the ramming happened. A neighbor said the driver called the group, some of whom had dogs with them, “yuppies with dogs.”

Troy Brown is Black, and others in the group were described as being Hispanic. When the driver allegedly rammed his truck at the group, he struck a white woman. Brown said he and others attempted to stop the driver from fleeing. A fight ensued. According to this account, the suspect cut Brown’s left arm with a knife.

2. These bastards have to be locked up for life

The corrosive and cancerous elements given permission by Fat Nixon to act out their sick racist fantasies need to pay severe consequences. Zero tolerance should be the baseline approach to these worthless perps.

3. Did I read this right?

A white man drove his pickup truck thru a birthday party yelling about the “Asians” but the party had black folks at the party. Hmmm

6. The person he hit was a white woman

And there were Black and Hispanic people in the group.

So it appears to have been a diverse group.

5. That's a diverse area of the city

Though getting whiter and wealthier because of gentrification. I still wouldn't at all be surprised to see Black, Latino, Asian, and white people all at the same party there.

7. What is this " allegedly" crap?

Allegedly means there is no proof. From the report it sure as hell looks like there is a lot of proof.

8. You legally say allegedly until there is a conviction.

Even if there is filmed evidence and a confession.

9. That is just so wrong.

It just sounds like it is making an easy way out for the person who committed the crime.

12. You want to tie them to a tree limb by their neck?

If they are guilty why do we need the court system?

Right?
