The Sergeant At Arms also tweeted a quote by Senate Chaplain Barry Black praising the police who shot Miriam Carey, 34, after she drove away from a random checkpoint near the White House.

“Lord we’re grateful for our law enforcement agents and first responders and pray we may emulate their patriotism and self-sacrifice,” he said of the officers involved.

The checkpoint Carey drove away from was actually a temporary “outer perimeter” fence and may have been installed for a joint training exercise involving multiple local and federal agencies in Washington, D.C., as reported by Adan Salazar.

According to an Army report, the drill tested their “interagency operability during a crisis” and maintained the Department of Defense’s ability to “provide defense support to civil authorities and employ appropriate force protection measures as requested.”

It is quite possible that Carey, a Connecticut resident, was unfamiliar with D.C. road accessibility and the unusual sight of militarized checkpoints.

She seemed to have panicked when at least five officers pointed guns at her vehicle.

Perhaps she acted as any protective mother would by taking her child out of the danger posed by police ready to riddle her car with bullets.

Police kill non-violent Americans all the time:

- In August, a 68-year-old Air Force veteran was gunned down in his own garage by a young Blount County, Tenn. deputy sheriff.

- Two Ft. Worth, Tx. police officers say they “felt threatened” when they killed a 72-year-old man in his own drive-way.

- An Arizona officer shot an unarmed victim of a car accident 10 times.

- A Florida police officer mowed down a suspect with his police car who was wanted for not wearing a seat belt.

Stories such as these are occurring more often as American law enforcement emerges into a domestic army willing to shoot first and spin later.

Politicians will continue to shower police with recognition for neutralizing “threats” with deadly force as non-lethal tactics disappear.
