Connecticut Woman Shot, Killed In Capitol Shooting Scare

Oct 3, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WIBW-TV Topeka

She had a 1-year-old child inside and apparently was unarmed. Instead, the motorist's black Infiniti, according to authorities, itself became a weapon Thursday afternoon, first striking a security barrier and U.S. Secret Service officer near the White House before hurtling down some of the capital's most famous streets, police cruisers in pursuit.

It's apparent from the videos available the woman's actions were completely reactive and she in no way attacked any officer intentionally. The police overreacted and caused her to attempt escape, probably injured and wanting to protect her baby. The police started to react as a mob. There needs to be an investigation.

Now, they're trying to cover the murderous cop's asses by claiming they went into some kind of special cop terrorist mode. Well, if they go into some kind of skinhead robocop mode, they shouldn't be cops. It is a Nazi mentality that tries to excuse bad behavior with such rationale.

This woman's car was stopped and she was out of the car, when they shot her down like a dog.

These are federal officers I doub't they will be held to task like locals are. Local police have to all the time deal with people who won't stop, because they are scared or they stole the car, or just don't want to go to jail and they don't get to shoot them willy nilly. you are not supposed to shoot into cars with one year olds in them either. I bet they will use the old she was going to kill me with the car excuse.

From most accounts I've read the lady sounded like a real pleasure to be around.
Sued her neighbors, drove aggressively and too fast, an arrogant know it all who obviusly had no regard for anyone's safety, and was willing to run an officer down in the attempt to make an escape that even a complete moron would know was impossible.
At any point, all she had to do was stop.
How dare they impede her progress!
She was black and in a luxury car!
She was a freekin idiot acting like a menace, so the cops had every right to do what they did.
She won't be missed.

OK, I did not know that , I guess that makes it ok to shoot her to death and risk hitting a 1 year old child with a bullet. I guess it would have been unconscionable use stop sticks to stop the car or let her get away to arrest her later.

Here is something that just does not sit well with me.

The standard reporting all pretty much says the same thing. This lady hit a barricade trying to break through.

Ok..........

Why is there no damage on the front end of the car?

Now let me ask everyone this. What if you were driving the car and whacked out on some antidepressants and noticed 7-8 guys around all pointing guns and yelling. What would you have done in that situation?

A normal individual who is not on some for of psycotropic drug would the get the hell out of there. And what did this lady do?

Excellent points. Do you have a link to photos of the car?

I agree that they overreacted, but did they know a child was in the car?

And that photo of the wrecked police car where the media says tries to play as a part of the chase.

Here is the video of the wreck itself.

Is it not possible that the DC police are just a little edgy when it comes to possible terrorists? Her behavior was erratic and unreasonable, they didn't know wtf she was up to. Didn't she attempt to run someone over?

Actually, she did run someone over.
She hit a cop who went over her hood.
Fortunately, he wasn't seriously injured.
The bottom line is when you are acting like an idiot in a secure area, you are not going to be treated with typical neighborhood police protocol.
The dummy was trying to run more than one baracade.
The police have to assume the worst.
Her car could have been full of explosives.
She could have also easily killed someone walking across the street.
She was driving like a drunken monkey.
The idiot post above about stop sticks is completely full of crap.
They didn't have the luxury of time.
They acted to stop the incident and they did.
Any cop will dump a magazine into a car that has been turned into a weapon and appears to be in use to try to kill them.
To expect otherwise could only make sense to a moron.

You must be wacked out yourself.
Those "7 to 8 guys" were in uniform, dumb-azz!
It all started when she tried to go through or around a barricade.
There were no guns drawn then.
All she had to do was behave like a human instead of a complete wack job.
It doesn't matter if your are deranged or you are methodically trying to kill people - When you are using a car as a 2 ton deadly weapon, have run over someone and act like she did with absolutely no regard for anyone's safety, you will get popped, and that's what happened.
