Why did Capitol police open fire on an unarmed woman?


Last Edited: October 4, 2013, 7:16 pm


Who was she



Miriam Carey, the woman authorities say rammed her car into the White House gates and led police on a chase before she was shot and killed.

Why did they open fire?
Because she was ramming the White House gates.
And if she had gotten through the gates the question would have been, "Why didn't they open fire?"

Why didn't they shoot the baby? It could have been a very cleverly disguised animatronic bomb.

There logic is not very consistent is it?

I am really surprised that after all the money they spent there that they don't have a device that will safely stop a car without having to worry about ricochets and stray shots.

Sorry I am really tired...that should have been "their logic"

I agree, if anything the tires should have been shot out before they opened fire on this woman.
Cops today do NOT use logic when faced with a situation. They had plenty of opportunity to stop this car before it got as far as it did...

I read quite a few stories this past week of cops shooting who they should not have. Seems to be a nationwide trend going on.

This was horrible , an unstable woman that needed help and was getting help but apparent not quick enough to save her life. Thank God they didn't shoot the baby. Even if she got through the gates that didn't warrant what happen. Must give these trigger happy cops more contrast training or for better words thinking on their feet.
