DC shooting
 
Bizarre story -- some lady tried to ram her car through a security gate at the White House, was chased by police and Secret Service to the Capitol, where she was shot by police. She also supposedly had a baby in the car. Not clear whether she was armed or if the cops did all the shooting.

This sucks. The woman is alive. Good thing the govt is in shutdown and the officers might not be paid. They don't deserve to be paid if they cannot cost us more money by having her alive.

She probably just felt an obligation to go in and work.;)

So, how long before a zealous liberal reporter claims that she was a tea partier?

When I saw the footage this afternoon, I could not believe that they didn't put a few rounds in the radiator while they had the nut stopped.

She has been confirmed dead. Unknown motive.

You know, it was funnier the second time. Go figure.

Last night some of the talking heads were asking why they shot her....?

I hate to second guess law enforcement in a hot situation like that but would like to see all the film on it.

Why should cops be somehow immune from criticism? If they shoot at someone and they had alternatives, time to either fire them or lock them up, possibly both.

The police in DC tend to have itchy trigger fingers, and *as I heard rumor* she tried to "run one of them down" with the car so they opened fire.

EDIT: Maybe it was one of those new fangled cars with an electronic throttle and it decided to take off on it's own?

Do any of the reports indicate how many rounds authoritys pumped into the womans car ?

Txjake 10-04-2013 10:36 AM

CNN reports than she thought she was under electronic survailance y the government. MK ULTRA again. I wonder if their programing is failing or are they just being called out?

That someone also had alternatives. Make a move like that and it threatens not only LEO but somebody else. Neutralize the threat. WGAS about this one?

Reports are the there were multiple guns shots and that she was unarmed.

Here's a link to the story with some videos if anyone is interested. There's been a lot of play on the story since she was a CT resident.

If nothing else it shows how ill-prepared, or inept, the DC police and Secret Service are when it comes to dealing with threats. Imagine if the driver was hell-bent on causing serious harm and mass casualties. Our politicians are "lucky" it was only an unarmed mother with a baby in the car. Thankfully the baby survived.
