MIRIAM CAREY'S SISTERS: SHOOTING NOT JUSTIFIED
WND ^ | October 8, 2013 | WND

Posted on 10/08/2013 9:31:24 AM PDT by Uncle Chip

The sisters of a Connecticut woman shot and killed by police in Washington, D.C., a week ago say they have many unanswered questions ....

Miriam Carey, 34, was killed Oct. 3 after a car chase from the White House to the Capitol. Police say she rammed a metal barricade at the White House with her black Infiniti, although multiple videos show the front of her car relatively undamaged, and she was able to drive away....

She crashed into security barriers a few blocks away, where she was killed by so many police bullets her family was allowed only to see her photograph to identify her.....

The sisters told “Today” they still have not been told exactly what happened....

In another interview, a witness to the shooting said officers removed the 13-month-old child from the car then shot and killed the mother.

The witness said, “I saw them try to pull someone from the car and realized when they pulled someone from the car it was a child.”

That, the witness said, is when “the gunfire really let loose,” against the unarmed Miriam Carey.

She saw someone trying to get out of the car, there were more gunshots and then “a rush of people”.....

So then according to the witness she was shot after the baby had been removed from the car and then again while she was trying to get out of the car???

That's certainly not the story we have been told.

The family should demand the public release of the dashcam videos of the shooting.

Saw them last nite on Greta, what WND reports is true. They say they have not been told what happened and that their sister was NOT acting unstable prior to her being shot.

Didn’t all of Bammy’s Social Security numbers come from Connecticut too?

It would only be a story if the family said that it *was* justified.They surely have a lawyer who thinks that he/she/it will be able to convince an OJ jury that the Capitol Police were just doing a bit of target practice and,therefore,the family deserves $50 million.

Something is fishy in this story!!! We do not have all the facts....that is for sure!!! I sincerely hope that somebody...not the Obama government, is investigating to find the truth!!! I got the hint that cover-up was coming forth, immediately after the police spokesmen, both of them, from the outset, would not say a word about the woman that was killed, not even that she was a woman, let alone, an African-American!!! Funny....don’t ya think?

Maybe if she got out of the car instead of trying to run over the officers she might be alive now. Of course she wasn't mentally stable in the first place.

The question I have is this, did she not ram her car in the White House area before it came to a stop and before she got out?

If she had tried to run over police officers, it is not surprising she would be shot.

I am no a cop hater, but the pack syndrome runs very strong in them.

get them in a pack and they sometimes do bad things.

One of them pops a cap and the rest just naturally have to shoot too.

It’s excitement it’s adrenalin. its a lot of things , it’s bad news for whoever is the victim.

These police chase often end badly when police are fired up after the chase.

How many times was she shot? How can they keep that from the family after they claim the body, their mortician can count. An unarmed woman that keeps coming back perhaps one fool could have shot her and called it a mistake, but multiple shots fired and hitting her can only be set down to panic.

Just coincidence?

If this had happened in New York City at the hands of the NYPD SOMEONE’S ash would already be in a brief case. It is hard to see why she was shot and I’ll be watching for the explanation.

1. Shooting complete.
2. Story being concocted.
3. Superiors will justify.

But driving into the White House barricade after driving all the way from her home to Washington DC does not sound too "stable".

Why she did what she did, that's another question, IMHO. Medications, who knows.

Ramming a car towards guards in front of a government building kind of makes it look like a car bomb attack in progress; the guards are gonna therefore be afraid, and they may shoot. Ramming a car at the government will not solve any problems.

No....I don’t think it’s that. I know something is wrong....I just can’t put my finger on it!!! This woman has some connection to Obama, either from afar, in the past or doing something off-color or illegal with him...not cheating, etc. Why? Because while the entire nation was applauding Obama for his drone kills of terrorists, I was thinking outside the box....Dead Men Or Dead Women Tell No Tales!!! IMHO, why was Bin Laden not captured, kidnapped and brought stateside for questioning, rather then outright killing him!!! Obama, IMHO, possibly has a dark, deep, frightening past!!! Why....Obama is evil, vindictive, hurtful, and an ego maniac, etc. Just a simple man’s opinion.

We have no proof she intentionally rammed any barricade or intentionally ran down a cop.

Washington police chief Cathy Lanier told reporters she was convinced the incident was not an “accident,” but she did not characterize it.

Ok, so Lanier needs to characterize it. Tell us what really happened. Where's the pressers like we get in other incidents like this? Nope, they're mum and we're getting crickets. Makes me wonder if they know they did wrong and can't figure out how to spin it.

We still feel that there was maybe another story than what we’re being told.”

She's right.

We still haven’t been told why she was in DC or who she was there to see. There’s not been a peep out of the baby daddy or who he might be. We don’t know what happened the 16 blocks away where it all started. Too many unanswered questions and the LE isn’t talking.

Me too. I mean, she wasn’t wearing a hoodie and she wasn’t smashing anyone’s head into the cement. Yet she was shot up to the point of no recognition. Certainly deserves an honorable mention from the race crowd.

I agree that this one seems weird. Why aren’t CBSNBCABCMSNBC all over this for everything its worth? Did they get the word from Obama’s people to bury this story? Where’s Sharpton?

Wrong question. Based on pictures of her car the real question should be, what do they mean by 'ram'. What did she 'ram' and hard was it really hit. The evidence seems to point to 'bump' and not 'ram'.

You mean the trashed cop car? There is video of that cop smashing his car by himself by ramming an obamacade at high speed.

They don’t want to publicize DC police shooting a black person. The White House angle makes it especially bad PR from the “left” or “liberal” point of view.

If a Republican was President, the story would be 24x7 for two weeks, then die down, but never end. Students would study the “DC massacre” in school for centuries.

That evil capitalist had the guards shoot the poor black woman.

Just so happens Obama is in the White House, so move along, nothing to see here.

Simple new world order propaganda management. NWO has to preserve its mythology for the American sheeple, so long ago it acquired control of the news media and education industries, which now dutifully insert and delete from their version of history on command.
