Skip to comments.Woman in DC chase may have thought Obama was stalking her, sources say (He's stalking us all)

The woman who led authorities on a chase from the White House to the Capitol before she was killed by police may have thought that President Barack Obama was stalking her, law enforcement sources told NBC News.
The sources said that the woman, Miriam Carey, had a history of mental health problems.
The chase, on Thursday afternoon, stirred panic in the capital and briefly stopped the mechanisms of government. It happened two weeks after a man shot 12 people to death at the Washington Navy Yard.
Members of the House and Senate, in a standoff over the government shutdown, were ordered to stay in place. One lawmaker was cut off mid-sentence during a speech. A swarm of police startled tourists who were taking in Washington on a summery day.

What you see going on in this story should be more than enough to have one question every media report one has ever seen. Get murdered by the government, and they will drag your corpse through the mud to justify it.
This bring attention to mental disorders resulting in tragedy. No guns to blame this time.
After watching the rather extended video of this bizarre event.....Id have to say theres a good chance she was inspired by more than the her disperceptions.... as the whole sequence is simply too convoluted to make any sense..
Obama was a Cracka! Be Scared of Cracka’s especially if you got that purple drink!
if they can’t blame the republicans or the tea party, this will fade away quickly, and nothing will be done
What are the odds she’s a T.E.A. Party patriot?
Who’s the baby daddy?
If creepy President Zero is stalking you, why do you go to a White House gate? You’d presumably stay far, far away.
Maybe she wasn’t as mentally ill as rumored.
I wouldn’t be surprised if this poor woman was taking some drug prescribed by a psychiatrist.
Sometimes, those drugs don’t react as they are supposed to, and can have a really bad affect on someone’s thinking process.
Background checks for cars-close the car show loophole!
OK, so the headline and first part of the article say she MAY have thought Obama was stalking her. She also MAY have panicked after hitting a barricade when she realized people were firing at her with her baby in the car, and MAY not have understood how to flee from that situation in the nightmare that is called driving around DC.
Time was when a journalist would have offered some type of justification for that claim. These news reports sound like the kind of presumptions people would throw out while yapping at the local tavern.
Makes a lot more sense when you realize that the part not yet televised has a bunch of non-uniformed SS goons jumping her car, pointing guns at her, and screaming. If you’re in DC and that happens, you better damn well flee or you’re likely dead. She probably had no idea she was so close to the WH.
“Get murdered by the government, and they will drag your corpse through the mud to justify it.”
That is one distrubing aspect of this - the media is now the cheering section for any blue city police force who murders an innocent - even if disturbed - citizen.
I’m sure that owebama will sit down with the cops for a beer summit...
So many things wrong with this incident.
“The two injured officers were exempt from the government shutdown and required to work but were not being paid.”
So, Obama is keeping slaves now? Looks like his EVIL white cracka half has taken over!
So, cops have free reign to gun down reckless drivers?
Can you imagine the outcry if their fusillade of bullets had hit the 18 month old baby in the car?
If the popup barriers managed to take out two cops, why didn’t they herd her toward these?
Why not keep a couple of their MRAP Humvees parked outside the White House, Capitol and Senate Office Buildings, “just in case”, for herding purposes. Call them the “Quarter Horses”. Besides, they’d be great for reminding us “the WON is in Charge Here”.
She was driving an assault Infinity. It was black and had more than 10 gallon capacity fuel tank.
Her mother said she thought she was taking the baby (born in August) to the doctor. Could have been visiting the baby’s daddy
Is it just me or is anybody else uneasy with watching the cops mow down an unarmed woman with a small child in the car? I am basically stunned by the general acceptance of it especially on the FOX news panel last night. It appears they have joined the Stasi and drunk the Kool Aid.
Our society has gone through a sea change in the past four years. The police state is in place and they are sending us all a message. Submit or die.
Yes, it shouldn't have been printed without corroboration. But, "journalists" are just repeating unnamed sources now, without bothering to even apply a "laugh test".
This particular article cites "law enforcement". But, I read another article earlier today that quoted the woman's boyfriend. I couldn't dig it up quickly, but my impression is that she may have gotten "freaked out" over all the recent revelations about domestic spying by the NSA.
If you are already teetering on the edge of reality, there have been many things in the past few weeks that would feed paranoid delusions. That may be what happened to this poor woman.
It's a shame she didn't get the medical help she needed, but after someone reaches a certain point, they may consider doctors to be their "enemy" as well. And, it's now very difficult to commit someone against their will.
And the poor..
Patient: “They're watching me. Every move I make. My phone, my Facebook. They have satellites in the sky watching me when I go outside.”
Psychiatrist: “Who is?”
Patient: “The NSA.”
Psychiatrist: “You sound sane me.”
It used to be that the MSM would vilify any police department that killed an unarmed person, especially doing so with a baby in the car.
Now the MSM is trying to find reasons why it was just fine for officers to fire on the car and kill someone.
I have a strong suspicion that it will be no less than a decade before we learn what was on her GPS.
Yeah, what happened to the Navy shooter? Dropped him like a hot potatoe.
The woman had mental depression issues, although she’d dammaged a concrete barrier (and her car), she was unarmed.
Why did they have to put 15 bullets into the car when they had no indication that she was armed?
It bothers me, too. But, I don't think the police knew the toddler was in the car. I'm relieved the child wasn't injured.
I haven't seen all the videos, but from what I've read and heard, it would have been extremely difficult to determine the driver's real intent. Put yourself in the officer's position and consider the nightmare scenario: the car was loaded with explosives and was trying to get past the barricades.
a few years ago in CT (new haven, iirc) a police officer got into hot water, and the city paid out a big settlement in the case of one malik jones(?) who was hopped up on drugs, and tried to run down an officer, who shot and killed him. now if cops can’t shot someone who is trying to run them down, then how is this justified?
Maybe it was those creepy OFA email requests for donations we’ve discussed here. (attempt at sick humor)
I don't believe what "law enforcement" says, and I certainly don't believe what NBC says... so this bit of news doesn't clear up anything for me.
I get the haunting sense that this was another Boston Marathon Bombing setup.
Im betting that this was a well managed USE of an “perceptively anchorless” “perp”.
The Big O and company NEED as many crisises as they think the public can stand.
WAG THE WHOLE KENNEL!!
These “sources” are scrambling to cover their hind ends after killing an unarmed mom with her infant in the car.
“”Sometimes, those drugs dont react as they are supposed to, and can have a really bad affect on someones thinking process.””
They couldn’t have affected her too much - she still had to get from CT to DC.. Has anyone heard anything about how she managed that? She seems to have had coworkers willing to talk to the press and they seemed very fond of her.
I absolutely can’t get over 5-6 people shooting into the car on the one video shown over and over and a small child in that car. Frightening!
I’m sorry I’m just not buying it. Those cops were standing right by the driver’s window. The woman had no weapon and all they had to do was shoot out her tires. Then stand back and wait to see if anythng blew up. By the way if they were worried about explosives why were they standing right by the car?
Its time to accept the fact that our new regime does not hold life very sacred and the new mindset is to erradicate any perceived threat with maximum force.
I’m with you. I can’t wrap my head around that. I intentionally stayed away from all the yammering talking heads last night. I figured none of them would have anything meaningful to say.
If she really wanted to see obozo, they could have told her he was in MD and given her directions!
My wife thinks that Miriam Carey went MEDEA when she
found out how much the deductible was for her daughter's
visit to the Doctor under FREE ObamaCare.
Where Medea drove her Cadillac into the restaurant
after she received poor service
OBTW Miriam was most likely prescribed SSRIs
It worries me also that the "mental health issues" as far as I can tell, comes from a neighbor who apparently offered nothing to back up their statement but it is being treated like it came down from Sinai written on stone tablets.
Back fence gossip is now the gold standard for journalism these days?
Shooting out the tires is something they do in the movies. In real life, shooting out the tires is very dangerous. Bullets tend to bounce off pavement and hit an unintended target.
By the way if they were worried about explosives why were they standing right by the car?
Because that's their job.
In retrospect, this situation could certainly have been handled better. But, given the propensity of our real enemies to use explosive laden vehicles as weapons, at that moment they had to make a decision, and the driver was acting like she was trying to do exactly that.
The term “stalking” is, sadly, associated with vengeful lovers. NSA MONITORING is probably what tormented her - especially if she had attempted to sign up for Obummacare and was asked to provide information - that the DHS already had on her.
She appears not to be of the dependent class - with a good career and self-supporting. By losing her job she may have also lost medical coverage for herself (medication) and her child. Pushed her over the edge.
Your basis for that conclusion is pretty thin. It's the kind of militaristic paranoia that is used by police for an enormous number of what can only be described as atrocities in the name of "officer safety." As backup for my seemingly bald assertion, I suggest you read Rise of the Warrior Cop, by Radley Balko. The numbers are there.
If that was true it would be 24/7 news already
was she upset she was denied a new obamaphone?
“In real life, shooting out the tires is very dangerous. Bullets tend to bounce off pavement and hit an unintended target”
Have you ever read my tagline? Dude. I am still laughing.
Maybe they thought she had a light saber and the force was with her. :-)
This would have happened under Bush as well -- it's just that the press would have made him look like a murderer over it. It's a miracle and a blessing that the child emerged unharmed.
I couldn’t believe people (Make that cops!) were shooting at the car, either—unless they were aiming low to try to take out the tires.
The mind is a complicated thing—and yes, I believe she could have made it from CT to DC, even taking these drugs. Sometimes, your mind will sorta go on “remote control”.
Have you ever been driving for a long while and start daydreaming, and then you see a sign that tells you that you have driven a lot further than you thought you had?
This poor woman was murdered by Obama’s thugs. BO thought that she might know something about his sordid past that would prove dangerous to his career as a community/nation agitator.
That only happens when there is a Republican in the White House.

The thing that ammazes me is that with all the ramma jammin she supposedly did the front end of the infinity is pristine.
Personally I think we now live under the Stasi rule. Submit immediately or die. That is the new mindset. Its too much trouble to try to capture someone and so easy to just shoot them. That is what happened yesterday. Barrycade is sending us all a message. Listen up Sheeple you could be next.
