Panic in DC after female driver with a child rammed barricades outside the White House
Daily Mail UK ^ | 10/3/2013

Posted on 10/03/2013 6:01:54 PM PDT by Wilderness Conservative

Terror gripped the nation's capital this afternoon after a woman rammed her car security fencing at the White House and then raced toward Capitol Hill, all with a one-year-old child in the back seat, before she was gunned down by Secret Service agents and Capitol Police officers.

The bizarre incident put the White House and Capitol Hill briefly on lock-down as officers swarmed the scene with assault rifles and hundreds of staffers and tourists fled in terror or took shelter in buildings at the political heart of Washington D.C.

Multiple news outlets are reporting the woman was Miriam Carey, a 34-year-old dental hygienist from Stamford, Connecticut. She was not armed, but repeatedly rammed law enforcement officers and squad cars with her black Infiniti luxury sedan while racing at speeds up to 80mph.

Funny how no American media in not publishing her name or photo. Fortunately the Brits are all over it. Big question here. If she tried to ram through the White House gate, why is there no damage to the front of her car? Something odd going on here. Could be a love child, could be more.

Lots of great photos at link, including the driver and the front of her car showing no damage.

I have been puzzled at how silent the media have really been on this today.

All I’ve heard was that “shots have been fired near the Capitol...” And that was the ENTIRE ‘top of the hour’ news blip on it... on to today’s weather...

This tells me that the regime and media know MUCH more about this than they’d like us to know.

Heroically saved the Presidents life by shooting an unarmed woman with a child who probably got lost, disoriented and scared.

my guess as she’s a well off black female,

she knows she’s one of holder’s people.

she would not be arrested, much less shot at, for making a “simple mistake”. she’s black, they won’t touch me.

that’s my guess.

A fox reporter on scene had an opportunity to get close to her car and this was early on. He reported that every window was blown out, other than that the car was virtually untouched.

Exactly. An unarmed woman with a 1 year old child. Very dangerous to
the DC elites. Why didn’t the police just shoot out her tires?

No, wasn’t she heard screaming at the White House “You come out Reggie. I’m the only woman you need! He can’t give you a child like I did!” ?

She tried to kill a policeman by ramming his drivers side door. I know someone involved.

I have no idea why they had to kill her. The only weapon she had was the car and they could block that totally.

It sounds like she went off the track but who knows what really happened.

“Repeatedly rammed law enforcement officers and squad cars”

Looks like the left front fender is crumpled a bit. Doesn’t look like she was ramming much of anything.

The first thing that goes if you hit something is the plastic bumper cover. That one looks totally intact.

It's just media-ese. The only thing terror gripped was the sphincters of about 500+ members of Congress because they thought the People had finally had enough of their sh*t.

I guess cops are all taught this but all you have to do to stop a car is ram the panel right behind the front tire, this usually pushes the sheet metal against the tire. Doesn’t guarantee a stop but usually does.

Wrong place to get upset and be a non-threat. The DC security mindset is likely too on edge to recognize anything different in a timely manner.

Obviously the Republicans’ evil shutdown of the government is to blame. There was no money for training of the LEO’s, thus they overreacted.

Something is wrong, I don’t think they are telling the whole story as usual! Why would she do this with the kid in the car, she drove pretty well to be freaked out.

Hang on now...

If you RAM another ...ANYTHING, your airbags will blow in your face. You then will have a REALLY hard time driving your car after that.

Yet, I keep seeing that she ‘repeatedly rammed..’ barricades, cop cars, etc...

Not a very reasonable explaination to me.

Not if you ram the car and don’t move. This happened at the Capitol.

They probably thought she was a suicide dental terrorist bomber loaded with novacaine-loaded autoclave steamer and white teeth, carrying a suspicious package in the back seat.

Thank God for DC police for protecting Americans from dangerous dental hygenists.

Yeah and that does not comport with “rammed the White House barricade” at all. Not at all.

This was a dumb flustered woman who was terrified when all the shooters jumped out at her.

Her subsequent actions warranted her death, but a cop could have just walked up to her and said “what’s a matter lady?”.

“And the cop car was really smashed up.”

The cop car ran into an object while chasing her.
The cop was the one driving like he had lost his mind.

She was black, so there's a 95% probability that she was an Obamabot.

If she lived in CT, what was she doing in DC? Tourist? Or something else?

The media must have been pretty devastated to find out that the suspect was black..not just black..but its all over twitter how she was of “Somali decent” the moment I heard that my ears went up..very interesting..considering what happened in Kenya

A thirty-four yo woman with a toddler drives ALONE, over four hours to DC, cruises the WH and Capitol building for what reason? The answer will be when we find out, if we are told, who was in the car with her, where did she drop them off and what was their intent. There is NO WAY a woman with a child just takes off for DC from CT for a Thursday afternoon romp around Washington without a purpose.

More and more cops have a thuggish/hotshot mentality. I bet they’re purposefully recruiting those types.

It was actually mentioned at the press conference..a reporter asked if the suspect was of Somali decent and they refused to answer..others online have confirmed she was..so yes very interesting..I wonder if Brian Ross is actively looking through Tea Party organizations in Connecticut to see if there were any Somali members
