    Strip reopens after 1 killed, 36 injured by driver

    Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) - LATEST UPDATE: The Las Vegas Strip reopened to traffic at around 5 a.m. Monday morning.

    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.

    The woman was transported to Clark County Detention Center. More information will be released Monday morning. Las Vegas police would like to hear from any witnesses to the incident.
    That's the story - a "homeless woman" drives up on a crowded sidewalk multiple times.

    This is an outtake from a local news source - compare this with reports on ABCBSCNN etc. Makes you wonder if it was the same event.

    She isn't "homeless" now - she'll get rent-free housing and free food for the next 15 to 30 years while in the slammer.
    What do you do to protect yourself from random crazies other than avoid target rich environments...

    Nah. She'll get 90 days of observation in the local loonie bin, then be turned loose on bail until a trial wherein she will be found not guilty by reason of insanity and returned to the bin for a few months of therapy. Then, she will be released to the wild unmonitored.

    What you do is, do NOT go anywhere where Large Crowds gather... Watch Football, and other Sports on the Tube... Save you money, by NOT going to LosWages to gamble, hit up a local Indian Reservation... And if permitted, always be carrying, SOMETHING... IF not a FireArm..

    They were quick to say "not terrorism" even before real questioning had started even though using cars to run down folks in Israel has been a tactic used by the barbarians.

    ditch witch I do stupid crap, so you don't have to

    The LEO is saying they are "uncomfortable" releasing the reasons for her actions and so are saying nothing at this time.

    i spent half my career in the USAF stationed in Las Vegas. Place has enuf loonies & violent gang - bangers as it is...

    BTW - several witnesses of the car attack are publicly claiming the driver was screaming Allah Fubar as she rammed the touritias again and again - which might explain the "we're not sure" from the Sheriff - what with the AG Lynch'em All being on the pro-muzzie warpath - he is CYA big-time....

    Just a note here... When my brother,(The Engineer) travels with his, he buys him a seat, and uses a wheelchair, rather than breaking him down for Air Freight... It is 30 % Cheaper...

    I keep sayin we gotta ban these danged racing cars from the streets. Who needs a car that can go faster than 55 mph? Who needs a car that gets exceptional gas mileage? Who needs a car with a trunk that could be used to hide explosives and weapons? Who needs a car that is only designed to protect the driver and passengers, and not the poor people on the street?

    There is no possible excuse for her actions. If a person can not control their emotions, if they resort to random murder and mayhem, they deserve whatever punishment polite society deems appropriate. If she is mentally unstable and requires medication to keep her stable and walking between the lines that delegate normal, then society has only very few acceptable choices. She should either be provided with the medication to keep her stable always, or Should she refuse to take her medications she should be locked up, and the key thrown away. She is a danger to society. That or put her down. Dead wackos can no longer kill anyone! jmho Oh BTW, has her name been added to the "NO FIREARMS PURCHASE OR POSSESSION LIST YET?"

    If taxpayers were to pay for medication and a person went off them and that resulted in loss of innocent life, "Turn and face the Ditch".
    I see no reason to continue to support a person that refuses to help themselves when the means are provided for them. THAT is one reason we have the crime problem we have today. Many know that the worse that can happen is that they will be locked up,fed, clothed and sheltered for the rest of their lives. Knowing that they would be taken out and shot in the back of the head at sunrise might just put the whoa into some of these criminals.

    "Allah FUBAR" ..... Now that is funny. I don't think she was a devout mooselimb. AKBAR is a lot different than FUBAR. FUBAR is military slang for F**KED UP BEYOND ALL REPAIR

    I got that, back in the day, as "----beyond all recognition." But I could be mistaking submarine usage for skimmer's inability to use all available letters in a code --- :p
