Top 5 Live-WURD Tuesday December 22
1. Lakeisha Holloway, 24, Was Driver in Deadly Las Vegas Strip Crash, Police Say

 A 24-year-old woman accused of driving a car through a crowd on the Las Vegas Strip, killing one and injuring over 30 others, wouldn’t tell police why she drove on the sidewalk, but did say she remembered a body bouncing off her windshield, the arrest report reveals.

Lakeisha Holloway, believed to be from Oregon, is in custody and will be charged with one count of murder with the use of a deadly weapon, the DA said. Officials said she could face additional charges including attempted murder, child abuse, and leaving the scene of an accident.

 

 2. Obama chides Republicans for lack of alternatives on ISIS

 President Obama said his administration is open to some “legitimate criticism” for failing to adequately explain its strategy to counter ISIS, though he chided Republican presidential candidates for criticizing his policy without offering an alternative.

In an interview on NPR, Obama attributed his low approval ratings to how he has handled terrorism to the saturation of ISIS attacks in the media after the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

 

 3. Eakin tearfully apologizes for offensive emails

State Supreme Court Justice J. Michael Eakin tearfully apologized Monday for exchanging emails that included pictures of naked women and crude jokes that mocked minorities, gays, lesbians and others.

Appearing before the judicial ethics court that is weighing misconduct charges against him, Eakin said regretted the messages, sent and received on a private account but made public because they were exchanged on government computer servers.

 

 4. Hillary Clinton camp to Donald Trump: ‘Hell no’ on apology

Hillary Clinton will not apologize to Donald Trump for saying that his comments disparaging Muslims were being used in ISIS videos to recruit terrorists.

“Hell no. Hillary Clinton will not be apologizing to Donald Trump for correctly pointing out how his hateful rhetoric only helps ISIS recruit more terrorists,” Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon saidMonday afternoon.

 

 5. ACLU: Blacks far more likely than whites to be arrested

The study was based on 10 years of arrest data the ACLU collected through public records requests filed with four communities – Elizabeth, Jersey City, Millville and New Brunswick.

Like everyone else, I was surprised that Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. It’s one thing for me to believe that Cosby was treated unfairly by a racist criminal justice system. It’s quite another thing for the state’s highest court to say Cosby’s due process rights were violated. Read on @whyy
