Woman Shot Dead by D.C. Police

Mirian Carey. A dental hygienist.

What would motivate a woman to drive 265 miles to crash her car into a White House barrier? Twice?  The government shut down, of course. Mirian Carey 34, a dental hygienist from Stamford, Connecticut drove her Nissan Infiniti from her home in Stamford to Washington D.C. and then rammed her car into a White House barrier with her one year old daughter Erica in the back seat.   

After being surrounded by Capitol Police at the White House, Carey managed to escape and was chased to the Capitol building where she was shot dead by police.  She was unarmed.

Have you noticed that whenever an act of violence occurs whether it’s a train wreck or a propane explosion or a madman shooting people screaming  “Allah Akbar” a spokesman comes forth to declare it is NOT an act of terrorism?  This incident is no different.

U.S. Capitol Police chief Kim Dine said the incident “appears to be an isolated, singular matter, with, at this point, no nexus to terrorism.”

Why Did She Do It?

After a quick Googling a bunch of reasons are being put forth:

  • Distraught of Government shut down.
  • History of mental Illness
  • Post Partum Depression
  • A bad break up with baby’s father
  • The Tea Party

So ask yourself :

  • Why would a young lady crash her car into the White House?
  • Why would a young lady who immigrated from Somalia crash her car into the White House?
  • Why would a young lady who immigrated from Somalia crash her car into the White House on the anniversary of the Battle of Mogadishu (Blackhawk Down)?

[ed note: The Capitol Police who gave chase were furloughed and working without pay.]

Where Were You on September 11th??

I was laying on the sofa watching “In Harm’s Way”.  I had just delivered the boys  to school.  My wife’s nephew Mike came across the street and told me to turn on the news.  The second airplane struck the Tower just as I tuned in.  It took me a minute to soak in that this was no accident.  As I left to go get the kids, I told Mike to fill all the sinks and tub with water.  By the time I got back our roommate Andy was awake and told him and the kids to break out our camping equipment and start filling milk jugs with water.  I called another friend to say it was time to break out the weapons and meet at my house with a full tank of gas.  I wasn’t so sure there wasn’t a attack on Sin City coming our way so I started our bug out plan.

Then I called the wife at work.  Her boss took a message.  I said, “Tell her Family Plan Alpha was in effect.  He asked her what that meant.  She said, “If I’m not waiting for him on the loading dock in 20 minutes he will come in and get me.  Do you remember what happened when I miscarried?”

She was standing on the loading dock when I pulled up. We went home and watched TV until it was apparent that Las Vegas wasn’t a target.
