GM Liable For Vegas Rampage
It is now confirmed that an Oldsmobile sedan was the weapon of choice for an apparently homeless mother that plowed into a Las Vegas crowd over and over again. One person was killed and another 35 were injured following the bloody attack on innocent civilians in America’s playground.
The 24-year-old woman who cops said had been living in her car with her 3-year-old daughter in Sin City for about a week was charged Monday in the automobile rampage that killed one and wounded some three dozen others.
Lakeisha N. Holloway appeared “stoic” when cops encountered her soon after the 1996 Oldsmobile she was driving plowed into a crowd on the Vegas Strip multiple times – all while a young child was sitting in the backseat.
“She didn’t appear to be distressed due to her actions,” Sheriff Joe Lombardo said during a Monday news conference.
Holloway was booked Monday on charges including murder, first-degree child abuse or neglect and failing to stop at the scene of an accident, according to Clark County Detention Center records.
The county prosecutor said he may consider seeking the death penalty in the case but had yet to arrive at a decision.
There is no word yet on whether General Motors would face a lawsuit over the use of it’s product in a violent attack that left nearly 40 people dead or injured.
The horrific scene also reignited calls on the left for ‘common sense car control laws’ to help curb the bloody carnage on America’s streets at the hands of those that clearly should not have cars in their hands.
