Thank you. I guess I don’t know wage rates very well.
I can’t imagine! And I don’t think I want to. LOL
Interestingly I saw mine today and she drives a 7-series BMW.
My father told me to go into health care. Seriously. But did I listen?
I suspect they do.
Watch the video. LE had surrounded the vehicle looking in every window from close range. If the child was in a baby seat they surely would have seen it. Perhaps the child was hidden from view.
She sure doesn’t seem to be hesitant in her driving.
Of course I have been watching the video repeatedly all day. My 30 years in LE and security operations is primarily what prompted me to add the part about how the possible or even likely knowledge that a child was within would or should have caused the cops to hold their fire.
If the child was hidden from view, why? It adds to my mystification as to why she came to D.C....?
She does appear rather aggressive, as opposed to panicked. Also, to get from the WH up to Capitol/Hart senate bldg., one sort of has to have a deliberate plan—it’s no straight shot, nor is it good odds that someone would just wind up there by random direction, etc.
Did she play golf or visit Chicago bath houses?
My thoughts exactly.
Dental Hygienists make that much?
My dentist probably makes 120k a year, if that after all his insurance, office costs, and manpower.
Me too. My gut is she was panicked, I heard one of the first with guns drawn was wearing shorts and did not look like a cop. If that is the case... I don’t blame her for fleeing.
actually word around chicago is older white men, think Putin.
ok, it needs benny hill music.
I knew dental hygenist do very well....it does require a college degree....but $100,000?...didn’t expect that much....
but WHY was she in DC?
I know being in DC qualifies you for being a criminal, weasel, bagman, sex trade worker, body disposal technician, cigar inserter, etc..... But we are allowed there as a people aren’t we?
Not on my dime. Pay as you go.
No, because of the initial incident at the White House gate.
....you gas it because you’re humiliated by what just happened....
Have you watched any of the videos of her driving? She used her car as a weapon.
Wow, I believe that. Obama is sick in so many ways.
Didn’t look like she was trying to avoid a confrontation, when she slammed it into reverse, hit the cop car behind her, then floored it out of the area.
Everything else after that is likely just being in the wrong place, at the wrong time, doing the wrong thing, in the wrong way.
“Have you watched any of the videos of her driving? She used her car as a weapon.”
One of the best weapons there is. People tend to get out of the way of a 2-ton hunk of metal hurtling down the street at 60mph.
I could be convinced of the “panicked crazy female” angle if I knew why she needed to be in DC. If was also a crazy reason, then that’s probably what happened.
I can’t believe anyone thinks she panicked. Any mother with a baby in the car, is NOT going to put that baby in danger.
She could have been messed up on drugs for all I know, but to think this is a normal reaction for a woman with a baby, is just illogical, to me.
The normal mom would freeze, not wanting to risk harm to herself or her child. Just don’t buy that idea. She was on a mission of some sort and no one was going to stop her.
I think it is highly unlikely that a young black woman—from the Northeast at that!—would blame Obama for the shutdown, and the WH was her initial target.
I’d say mental illness, meds from her head injury, and/or baby/child support drama are all plausible factors.
Sounds like they were also running a drill at the time.
Watched the video. Very leading statements. “Carey tried to ram the White House Barrier”..Well the video shows her car only parked next to the barrier. “She struck an officer with the car”.. Well she backed up to drive a way and struck a cruiser. “Gun shots were fired”....Well she didn’t have a gun so all shots came from law enforcement. Now we are told she fell and hit her head in the last 2 years.. Well there you go.. Good a reason to give as any..Let’s close this case ASAP..
How about this... She got lost in DC. The cops and drawn guns scared her or irritated her sense of pride that demands more respect due to one of her high income and superior minority status..The rest, as they say, is history.
Got a mirror? What's the over/under on the number of EBT cards they find in her purse? I'm not convinced her relationship with the Federal Government was any more intimate than merely that of spoiled dependent.
Where are all the fathers of these bastard kids?
Sudden Obamacare Syndrome
Perhaps the most relevant point to the left.
My thoughts on this rather bizarre situation: 1. A run-up operation probing the security levels and response rates of first responders; or, 2. A revenge-minded Jerry Springer Show reject wanting what she’s owed - right now; or, 3. An extremely poorly handled response by LEOs. Inquiring minds want to know.....
A job that puts one in close proximity of some of the most filthy dental conditions/rot/decay and gum disease, and bacterial infection potential with skin contact or inhalation. No thanks w/ or w/out facemask, gloves eyeglasses.
The proximity is said to incline to depression. Dentists might tell you this.

That was the WH?
Or the capital ...
Hint: We don’t have video of the ORIGINAL encounter (the reason all those COPS were surrounding her in the first place) at the WH ...
Ppl need to get the events in the proper order and sequence on this ...
Does Ubama have any connection to Connecticut... besides his social security number?
I read initially that the car was rented, which makes a bit more sense if you are on Mission to commit havoc. Was this Jihad? Was this for Trayvon? Stay tuned.
Was this a ‘probe’?
The taxes and everything that goes with living in Connecticut are soooo high that those high salaries are needed to survive. That is, if you are actually trying to be productive.
I agree - if she was having a postpartum snap (18 months later?), she may well have not cared what happened to her daughter. She was recently fired. Hadn’t paid her condo fees in a long time, so they were probably going after her money. Babydaddy ignoring her??? ... Vengeance will be mine, so saith the Lord.
The video shows only a segment of the chase/incident, specifically the stage where she had already made up onto Capitol Hill and had left the White House far behind. Your interpretation that that video shows the confrontation at the WH is wrong.
There was the incident at the WH gate, where she crashed through a retaining gate and ran down a secret service agent, then the incident caught on video as they almost boxed her in on Capitol Hill and she gunned it almost running over officers...then more of the same further up by the Hart senate bldg. She was whacko and intent on mayhem. The whole thing played out over the space of over a mile.
I hear that changing diapers is kinda hazardous duty too. Wonder why children are still born every day...mebbe there are compensations?
