TERRORISM? Las Vegas Sheriff ‘Not Comfortable Disclosing’ Reason Rampage Driver Told Him
It would appear there’s a lot more to the tragic incident that took place in Las Vegas, then simply another loon going off the rails, and apparently the Clark County sheriff appears to know why 24-year-old Lakeisha Holloway intentionally drove onto a crowded Las Vegas Boulevard sidewalk to intentionally mow down dozens of pedestrians, but is “not comfortable disclosing what” she told him.
“Not comfortable” suggests perhaps another motive, or something even more sinister. And although initial media reports ruled out terrorism, the fact that it was even mentioned during a press conference Monday afternoon and the cryptic remark by the sheriff, actually leaves more questions hanging out there, then whatever was said at the press briefing.
During a press conference on Monday the Sheriff said he has not ruled out terrorism as the motive.
The crash happened on a busy stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard across from the dancing water fountains of the Bellagio hotel-casino where visitors crowd sidewalks as they head from one casino to another.
The Miss Universe pageant was being held nearby at Planet Hollywood.
The recent events in both Paris and in California has intensified awareness of what might appear as random acts of criminality, may in fact be well planed acts of terror, and perhaps what was reveled through interrogation of Holloway may eventually uncover her true motive.

Police however do not have a definitive motive yet, but that they believe she had a falling out with the father of her child before the crash.
A drug recognition expert on the scene determined Holloway was under the influence of a “stimulant,” but blood test results were pending.
