26 year old black female with toddler in the car 1996 oldsmobile. she drove on and off of the sidewalk several times so the detectives say it was deliberate.

car has oregon plates.


I wonder who offered her money.
there is nothing yet to indicate she is part of a conspiracy or that she has a terrorist motive or connections.

OH, I know.

I'm going on the suggestion her actions were deliberate.

Possible single mom, etc.

*puts on idiot hat*

Oh come on now, Randy.

Surely you know that if you can commit vehicular assault with the thing, it MUST be an assault vehicle!


Just don't be walk'n off with the hat brotha!

A 1996 Oldsmobile is hardly an assault vehicle is it?

1996 would put it right in the middle of the "Clinton assault vehicle ban" era.

Why have they not released her name yet?

Does DOJ/CRS need to make sure her social media history is scrubbed first?

How were they so quick to rule out the possibility of terrorism?

It might be motivated by something like the "car intifada" Hamas called for.

All something like this takes is a bus stop and even that doesn't need to be there. The Strip is so full of people you could easily run over hundreds in a few seconds, even on a Sunday night which is a slower night of the week. You don't even need to drive fast if you catch the people at the right place.

I just got home a few moments ago from work, been there all day delivering pies, and this is the first actual news I've heard other than that this happened. One note I have before I go back and read what news there is about this, is this seems to me like she had a heart attack or some medical type situation. As I only got up to this post I still know almost nothing so that could be hogwash.

Today was quite a weird day. Cops and ambulances all over the place and when this was going on and the scene was being investigated, there were still bunches of cops on the roads, all over. Some were overstating what they saw, even though it was still a bunch of cops there they weren't ALL there.

it was definitely intentional.

The murderer was fully conscious when she resisted arrest.




Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) - UPDATE: Police have now confirmed that the crash was intentional.

According to Las Vegas police, a black woman in her 20s driving a 1996 Oldsmobile drove onto the sidewalk between the Paris hotel-casino and Bally's at 2 different locations. The driver has been arrested and a 3-year-old child in the car with the driver is unharmed. 6 victims are still in critical condition and 1 person has died.

Witnesses reported that people tried to stop the driver and that her windshield was completely smashed. She fled the scene and police caught her at Flamingo Road and Koval. She was briefly barricaded in her car and refused to come out for a while before she was arrested. Her vehicle has Oregon license plates and it is believed that she has been in Las Vegas for about a week.

Well, guess I was wrong. I assume there isn't any more info at this time as it's late so we'll have to wait until late to have any clue as to what happened here tonight.

I delivered to UMC's trauma ward yesterday and had to actually go in there. A dude was getting stitched up and it was quite gruesome. I can only hope all goes as well as can be hoped for, for those who got injured tonight.

ugh... hopefully this is as ugly as it gets
and not the beginning of some weird coordinated hits.


Isn't it fascinating to note that, in the current political climate (and, it has to be said, due to persistent MSM fearmongering) every time an incident occurs someone always pops up expressing hope that it's not part of a bigger picture.

Are those of you who comment this way really that scared that every incident could be the next potential terrorist threat?

Normally I keep this to myself, but I was there to experience the aftermath and general sense of chaos and trauma, this isn't something we should be making jokes or political jabs about. Someone died. Many more got hurt. Right in the middle of the holiday season in one of the most popular tourist destinations on the planet. People were crying, walking around in a daze. A crazed drunken woman just started mowing people down and crashed into the Paris.

Please. This thread was hinting on a terrorist act from the get go.

I am just asking the question everyone seems to be dancing around.

Don't try and play it off as if it didn't cross your mind. It crossed my mind and a few others by the looks of it.

No it was NOT hinted as a terrorist attack in any way. It was actually cleared up quite quick to NOT be a terrorist act. Get over your guilty complex.

It never once crossed my mind, this is Vegas where drunks are always a problem and that's what crossed my mind maybe if a casino was blown up then I would most like assume terrorism.

Dropped it, stamped on it, burnt it, refused to put it out using the traditional method, and swore at it vigorously before leaving! No worries!



If I were still wearing it, the following query would be serious, rather than in jest:

Am I to understand, that in an age where the driverless car is looking to be a serious prospect for the future, there may be a call to ban automatic vehicles over incidents like this?

I know, I am terrible.

But in all seriousness, what drives a person to commit vehicular manslaughter or murder, with their children in the vehicle?

The question is what does you being a Muslim have to do with this situation or any situation for that matter?

I don't know, neither do the dozen or so people I talked to that witnessed it. It was far from a "light moment".

No indeed. I have witnessed a motor vehicular killing before, and it is far from light.

So you were on the scene at some point, and made enquires of your own? I am pleased to hear that. It is always good to hear a member do a little legwork of their own before commenting on a matter. Good for you!

From what you said above, am I to assume that no further data was gleaned from your enterprise, other than what appears to be in the media relating to this topic? If so, that is unfortunate, but understandable. In a place as large, and with such varied population dynamics as Vegas, it is hardly surprising that witnesses would have been unable to shed much light on the motivation for this appalling act.

We can but speculate at this point then, which is all too often a wasteful exercise. I will await further data with anticipation.
