    Why isn't everybody out there trying to ban Taxis' now? If the taxi driver used a gun everyone would be crying foul. Bulge.


    Taxi plows into San Diego crowd injuring 25 people

    SAN DIEGO, California (Reuters) – A Taxi cab plowed into a crowd of people on a downtown San Diego sidewalk after they left a bar early Saturday morning, injuring 25 people, seven of them critically, authorities said.

    Among the critically injured was a woman whose leg was severed when the cab crushed her against the building, San Diego Fire-Rescue Department spokesman Maurice Luque said.

    Several people in the crowd pulled the driver out of his cab and beat him, Luque said. The cab driver was also taken to the hospital with a broken nose and other injuries.

    About 55 paramedics, fire-rescue team members and police remained on the scene for more than four hours after the carnage in front of Stingaree, a popular club in the Gaslamp district.

    Two of the injured declined transportation to the eight local hospitals where the remaining 23 and the cab driver were taken, Luque said.

    It was not immediately clear why the cab driver veered off the road into the crowd, although Luque said that the driver was not drunk.

    We must stop these attacks by people driving readily available vehicles of mass transportation with high powered V-8 motors, high capacity fuel tanks and fully automatic transmissions!

    What model of fully Automatic, High powered weapon was it and who sold it to him?(was it black?] Was it running high octane or mid grade? How was someone this mentaly disturbed able to purchase such a dangerous High Powered auto? Who sold him the fuel?

    Some of these WMD's are reportedly being found in the hands of the Mexican Drug cartel, helping to fuel violence and mayhem across the southern border.

    This whole preventable disaster has to be linked to the Tea Party and Sarah Palins Crosshair map.

    It was an assault taxi. No present regulations for this WMD. Mindless violence.

    They should put the driver in jail with the guy who did the shooting in Tucson, vertually the same thing but no Congress woman involved and a different weapon of choice ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    The driver was a member of the Talicab,...it was a suicide attack meant to take out infidels...but the moron forgot about the airbags..he was probably an ex-NYC cabbie

    You guys are missing the point and not looking squarely at who is to blame. It is not the taxidriver, he/she/it was merely at the wrong place at the wrong time. it is clearly the fault of the bartender/owner who made coming to his/her/it's bar by offering a happy hour. Of course, the blame will have to be distributed evenly among the beer, wine and liquor distributors as well as the delivery persons, warehouse owners, etc.

    Advertisers may indeed be partly responsible, as would be the media in which they advertised. This is clearly not the taxi driver's fault.
