It's Hittin' The Fan! II




Well, the incendiary language coming out of the Democrats ("Politics have reached Civil War levels!" "Republicans are Terrorists!") was bound to rile somebody up.  Looks like it might have been the DC Police and the Secret Service that got riled up, instead of the not-scary WWII Honor Vets that had Obama quaking in his flip-flops.  Or, maybe it was the dental hygenist from Connecticut.  In any case, bad things went down in DC today.

Here's my theory, from what I can gather:

A 34-year-old black woman, Miriam Carey, with a 2-year-old baby girl, an unemployed dental hygenist of Somali descent from Stamford Connecticut, who had been hospitalized for depression, had some words with a Secret Service agent at the Treasury entrance.  Who knows what she was doing there.  She may have who mouthed off to the cops, or perhaps her adult passenger (where is he now?) did.  Some say she tried to go through the security barrier, but I see no evidence of that on the front of her car.

Anyway, somewhere near 15th and Pennsylvania, 6+ cops surrounded her car with
Possibly the victim
or maybe the perp
guns drawn, about 6 feet away.   I figure the cops started yelling at the woman.  They're already freaked out and hopped up, maybe by the 'riods they're probably taking, or maybe the 
Capital Shield 2014 drill that's going on.  The woman maybe yelled incomprehensible things back at the cops.  Typical auditory exclusion, no communication.

About then, she freaked out, backed up and maybe T-boned a Capitol Police Car.  Then, she shoved it into Drive and bolted.

The woman bugging out made the cops go nuts, like hornets out of a nest.  Maybe some idiot Secret Service agent that had his booger hook on the bang switch had a negligent discharge and shot at her, a sympathetic nerve reaction. Then, a bunch of the cops start shooting at the fleeing car, with complete disregard for what was behind it, or who was in it.  

One of the moron cops hit a "pop-up" stanchion barrier near First Street and Independence Avenue, upending his car, and freaking the other cops out even more.  There may have been another stop here, as some outlets are reporting two 'crime scenes' (though we don't know that she wasn't just an innocent victim of government violence).

Meanwhile, the woman bolted, as 20+ Capitol Police cars picked up the chase.  The Keystone Cops followed like maniacs, around and around the traffic circle, and then they maneuvered her into the Barrycades, and then gunned her down in cold blood.  

Nice work, Capitol Police and Secret Service.    What a tragedy.

Pretty hard to blame that on the TEA Party.

Sounds more and more like the Keystone-Kops-type event in Miami in 1986, the shootout between the FBI and Platt & Mattix, except this woman wasn't shooting.

It is a God's honest miracle that the little girl wasn't killed.  That, and the fact that these Keystone Kops can't shoot worth a flip.

And it looks like the woman didn't even have a gun.  They are going to have to "snowflake" her, and drop an "unregistered weapon" in the car to make this look all better for Emperor Zero.  And a copy of “The Turner Diaries.” You just wait until tonight.  MSNBC and Piers Morgan on CNN will be caterwauling, "She had a GLOCK AK-15 AUTOMATIC SHOTGUN RIFLE PISTOL CARBINE OF DOOM!  In a SACRED GUN FREE ZONE!"


Turn the sound down so you won't be distracted by the yammering talking heads who know nothing at this point.

There was a YouTube video, but it's been yanked.

A wag on Free Republic quipped that they are clearing her history of Obama-supporting blogs, campaigning, etc.  I would not be surprised one bit.

Via ABC News:
Woman tried to ram White House gates: 
Media reports say that the incident started when a woman attempted to crash her car through the barriers in front of the White House along Pennsylvania Avenue. Shots were exchanged with police and a car chase took events to Capitol Hill.
UPDATEThe cop crashed the Barrycade, and didn't get shot at all!
Secret Service pursued a suspect from the White House to the Capitol. One agent in a marked Secret Service vehicle was injured when the car in which he was chasing the suspect was upended by one of the Capitol's electronic barricades as it rose out of the ground. 

A Capitol Police officer, who was initially reported shot, was later found to have also been injured in a traffic accident involving a moving barricade.
Nice work, moron.

UPDATE: Who knew THIS was going on?
Capital Shield 2014 is a joint training exercise in the National Capital Region, or NCR, that runs from Sept. 30 thru Oct. 3. first responders to train in nation's capital.
The drill is the event  again?  So, the cops were all jazzed up about this, and then shot some lady who was turning around?

UPDATE from Free Republic:  The little orphaned black girl.  The poor thing.  Lost her mommy now, as a result of a government hit job.

UPDATE 4:29EDT: It's an Infiniti with Connecticut plates (photo from Free Republic)

There also appears to be a Capitol-area parking sticker on the windshield, so maybe she was a furloughed Obama minion.

@GlennThrush Hey journos: Nobody rammed the WH “gates” — the car hit a stanchion a block beyond the security perimeter3:27 PM - 3 Oct 2013

UPDATE 6:05EDT:  The DailyMail UK is saying she was a 34-year old dental hygenist from Stamford, Connecticut.  Real dangerous, them terrorist hygenists.

NY Post says the woman's name was Miriam Carey.

UPDATE 6:22EDT: Looks like the police are already telling the media there was a "gunman".  Bull crap.  Those cops did all the shooting.

Several people on Free Republic have been talking about the coincidence of Ms. Carey being of Somali descent, coupled with the fact that today's the 20th anniversary of Black Hawk Down (Mogadishu, Somalia), and add that the US-government-funded al Hurrah TV station just happening to be on the scene.  Spooky, dudes.

UPDATE 10/4 12:13EDT:

UK Mail Online: 'She thought President Obama was stalking her': Dental hygienist shot dead after ramming her car into the White House 'suffered delusions due to postpartum depression

CYA maneuver. The FedGov has to find a way to explain why they gunned down a young mother in cold blood yesterday.  Answer: say she's a kook who thought Obama was out to get her.  Implying, she's just like all the other TEA Party kooks.  They're saying it without coming out and saying it, by bringing Emperor Zero into it.

Source: Schizophrenia meds found at home of Miriam Carey after Capitol chase
I think this is pretty close to what happened:
Thursday's drama began around 2 p.m., when the woman steered a black Infiniti near the White House, a U.S. Secret Service source said. She drove up to a barrier at the 15th and E street checkpoint and was approached by Secret Service officers. She hurriedly made an erratic three-point turn, striking the barrier and backing into an officer before driving away, the source told CNN.
Police said the car sped down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the Capitol, where security vehicles stopped it at Garfield Circle.
The woman slammed the car into reverse, crashing into a police cruiser, and tried to get away. At that point officers began firing, a witness said.
Dramatic video footage by a videographer for Alhurra TV... showed the black vehicle then speeding around a nearby traffic circle with a police car in close pursuit and then heading away. The car crashed into more security barriers a few blocks later, witnesses said.
More shots were fired after the vehicle stopped, and the woman was hit several times, said Metropolitan Police Department Chief Cathy Lanier. Carey was later pronounced dead, Lanier said. Two officers were injured.
A Capitol Police officer whose vehicle crashed during the chase was hurt, authorities said. The officer was released from a hospital Thursday night. The Secret Service did not release information about its injured agent.

Washington Post:  Driver killed after car chase from White House to Capitol

I think this is about right:
It began with something not that unusual — a driver with out-of-state plates turning into a blocked entry near the White House. 
It quickly became something else. 
“Whoa! Whoa!,” Secret Service officers were shouting at the car, according to a witness, Shawn Joseph, 29. “It looked liked [the driver was] scared or lost. I thought they might have been a tourist.”

I think this part is bullcrap:

But then, witnesses said, officers tried to place a barrier in front of the car. The driver swerved. The officers moved the barrier. She hit it, and a Secret Service officer was thrown up on the hood and then off the car.
Yeah, buddy.  I bet he was.  NOT.

The story continues:
The officer was not badly hurt. The driver sped east and was stopped by police at a small traffic circle at the foot of Capitol Hill. There, video shot by the U.S.-funded Arabic TV station Alhurra shows officers with guns pointed at the car. The driver took off. 
“I thought it was a motorcade,” said Ryan Christiansen, of Idaho Falls, Idaho, when he saw the black car trailed by police cars with sirens wailing. Then, Christiansen said, the car “was pulling away, and somewhere between six and eight shots were fired,” he said.

Despite the shots, the driver continued. She went around another traffic circle and then up Constitution Avenue toward the peak of Capitol Hill.
Up there, 46-year-old tourist Edmund Ofori-Attah was walking toward the Hart building to ask if it was open for tours. With most of Washington’s top attractions shut down, touring an office building sounded better than nothing. 
Then he saw a black car whiz past. It abruptly turned left, as if to make a U-turn, and lodged itself on a grassy divide.

“That’s where it got pinned,” he said. “At that point, we heard five to six rounds of gunfire and my wife and I dropped to the ground. We were hoping not to get in the way of a stray bullet — we just lay down as low as possible. We even smelled the gunpowder in the air.”
The final shots were fired on that median. Police said they were not sure how many officers had fired or how many times the woman was shot.
And, they also can't come up with a reason WHY they shot her.


  1. How about you try it like this: Unidentified individual shot while attempting to escape police, causing damaged vehicles and two injuries. Take out Black. Take out Female. What do you have? Someone acting irresponsibly, and illegally was shot while breaking the law. Where's your sympathy there? It's gone. OR, try this: Female mother works at a prison, and is put on furlough because of the government shut down, and whlve visiting her sister in DC, takes her anger out on the town, and then realizes what she has done, freaks out, runs, sees cops shooting at her, and instead of doing the RIGHT thing: Stopping, she runs even faster. They shoot her, because we live in a world where unknown terrorists live right next door to us. We've had bombs, shootings, galore. We are not going to allow such a thing to happen on the streets surrounding the nation's entire government. Anyone who thought we would now has to rethink, don't they. She was probably just a hurt, confused, and maybe stupid woman, but she got what anyone would get in those same circumstances. Who was in the wrong? She was. When you act guilty, you will be treated as such when the possibility of danger is present.

  2. TeresaR: This is still America. The police have no business gunning down an unarmed woman because she "looks guilty" or "acts guilty". What bullcrap.

    And by the way, "the possibility of danger" is always present. When seconds count, the cops are minutes away. Arm yourself.
