Sheriff “Uncomfortable” about Revealing Las Vegas Strip Murderer Lakeisha Holloway’s Motive

Apparently a Las Vegas sheriff is “uncomfortable” revealing the motive behind Lakeisha Nicole Holloway’s violent rampage through the streets of Las Vegas that left one dead and at least 35 pedestrians injured earlier this week.

Holloway, 24, was driving with her three-year-old daughter in the back seat as she plowed into pedestrians along the Las Vegas strip. However, comments from Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, according to Fox News, claim that he was “uncomfortable” revealing the motive behind why Holloway engaged in her murderous actions.

In fact, he believes that the actions of Holloway are not a “militant attack.” Then why be uncomfortable with the motive?

Though authorities have claimed to have ruled out terrorism, they were confident that Holloway did what she did deliberately. According to at least one eyewitness, Holloway was uttering an all too familiar phrase as she mowed people down on the strip.

“As this unfolded, the only thing I recall as this happened is the insane sound of her car accelerating and the voice from the car was screaming ‘Allah Akbar!’ I’ve heard the sound enough times on the news that I was waiting for a bomb to blow up or guns to start firing,” said the eyewitness.

According to Sheriff Lombardo, “She didn’t appear to be distressed due to her actions. That’s the best way I can describe it.”

“This is an ongoing investigation,” said Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson. “I’ve personally seen the videos from a variety of angles, and I’m appalled at the callousness of this defendant’s conduct and what appears to be an intentional act.”

Allegedly, the woman, who legally changed her name in October to Paris Paradise Morton, was on her way from Oregon to Dallas, Texas to find her daughter’s estranged father.

Still the question remains, was it Islamic terrorism? While we could point to various articles that demonstrate that the Black Lives Matter movement has domestic terrorists in it and that some of them are aligned with Islamic jihadis, it seems that the motive behind this attack was not one that is related to jihad, but rather a women who was emotionally distraught.

According to NBC KSNV, Holloway told police “I am hurting, and I want others to feel pain!”

So far, that seems to be the only credible thing that has come out. While I don’t want to dismiss the one eyewitness totally, it remains only one eyewitness. While it is possible that Holloway has Muslim beliefs, I find it even more disturbing that she would want to take out her own pain on other people in the manner that she did, and perhaps this is why the sheriff was “uncomfortable” in communicating that to the public.

Calls to Sheriff Lombardo’s office were met with an answering machine, probably due to it being Christmas week and after hours.

Holloway was arrested and on Tuesday, she was formally charged with murder with a deadly weapon and more charges are likely to come. Yes, I’ll insert here where, if consistent, the Obama administration would be on television demanding the ban or cars and “common sense car regulations,” but no one is expecting that.
