Heroic "Unpaid" US Capitol Police [Really!?]
Fox News Special Report ^ | 10/03/2013 | A.B. Stoddard

Posted on 10/03/2013 4:02:24 PM PDT by SES1066

Multiple mentions made by the liberal-leaning FNC commentators, at least one being A.B.Stoddard of The Hill, highlight that 'some' of the LEOs (Capitol Police & US Secret Service) are doing their duties 'unpaid'. Yes, they did their job in this chaotic incident with the automobile attack, but unpaid - really?

KEYWORDS: blamegame; govshutdown; miriamcarey
Based on past history, everyone of these furloughed government employees will receive ALL of their pay once the new spending bills are authorized. So to make a big thing about their current 'unpaid' status is absolute BUNK and totally BOGUS. Liberals being bogus and speaking bunk, big surprise!

I “lived” in WDC for 30 years. The Fed “workers” get their pay retroactively. Essentially, those at home laid off get a paid vacation.

White-whites profiled, tracked down and shot the poor, unarmed Trayvonisha who was only looking to score a bag of skittles.

I heard Ms. A.B.Stoddard make that claim about Capital Police being unpaid. She is so disingenuous for she failed to mention that in all past shutdowns those working unpaid did receive salary after shutdown was over. Those that were furloughed and stayed home even got paid. Stoddard was obvious in her Democratic support.

When I heard that Steny Hoyer had ordered a standing ovation for the capitol cops, I knew that a white guy had just shot an unarmed black woman. Just watch..this is all window dressing.

They did their job? A woman with a baby in the back seat runs into a barrier, and they go totally bananas, running around with assault rifles, wrecking police cars, shutting down the capital, shutting off the White House, etc., etc.

All because of what probably amounted to a minor traffic violation? It clearly wasn’t a terrorist assault. So, why did they have all that crazy stuff going on, which could easily have resulted in the deaths of innocent bystanders?

Great post! How could they not think of shooting out the tires first? Is that not in their training?

It’s a little hard to believe that the Capitol police would not be considered essential.

Remember the standing ovation in the House? Why’d they do that so soon? That was the first step in closing ranks. I smell a *mess*— an unarmed black woman with a child shot—by a white cop? Wow. And I notice that they started floating the “mentally ill” thing right away, just like with the Navy yard shooter. They’re spinning the narrative. I wish a reporter could take the license plate and find out who the heck she was.

Well then tell The US House to fund them as well.

Is that why they shot an unarmed mother, because they are upset about their pay? /semisarc

Yep, if they felt compelled to shoot anything out, her car tires would have sufficed.

I guess if it was my relative who almost got run over by her car, I might have a different view. I just thought law enforcement was trained to shoot tires out first..things like that.

Definitely sad the child lost his/her mom today. Maybe little by little we will find out the truth. The key might be to talk with her friends before the FBI, CIA, tell them to stay quiet.

That's a good point as to why they didn't shoot out her tires. But she could have surrendered at any point and didn't also. Guess we'll eventually know the whole story.

I am beginning to wonder about all this. There must be tons of video. How much of it we see will tell us something about what really transpired.

There is precious little damage showing on the car for a ramming incident. Did she have an accident turning around near the white hut and panic? Did the agent shooting and hitting her car cause her unbridled terror? And all those white faces with guns pointed at her ... did decades of hearing all the race-hustler stories instill such a deep fear that the "fight or flight" instinct was in complete control? Something just isn't adding up here. Let's see the original "ramming" video.

I don’t really know the sequence of events enough to judge, but from the sounds of it she could have easily—and maybe even rightfully—been too panicked to expose herself to such a shooting squad. I wonder if she really did approach 70MPH in driving from the the White House to the Capital.

You don't shoot tires out unless you are in times square at noon. She was freaked. It would not end till she found a comfort zone. The real question was, did they kill the car?

15 to 17 rounds at three different locations. That is a lot of opportunity for innocents to be hurt or killed. I read there were head and neck injuries.
