Another Shooting in D.C.: An “Erratic” But Unarmed Woman Drove to the White House First, Tried to Breach Security, Then Was Chased by Cops, and Finally Was Shot and Killed with Her Child in the Back Seat
It may be a black woman, too.
From Stamford, Connecticut.
Another one with a history of mental illness.
But this woman, identified as Miriam Kerry, 34, was said to be unarmed. Kerry drove at top speed from the White House—where she tried to break through a security barrier—to the Capitol, where she was finally gunned down and killed.
Her bewildered child, a little girl with little pigtail puffs probably gathered by barettes, is okay. I saw her being recovered by a woman officer while watching CNN. Now I’m at MSNBC with the Reverend Al. That’s how I knew it must be someone black.
At this juncture, some cops have shown up at her home with some robots to search it. Yep, the TV cameras from Connecticut media are there, too. The robots are there just in case it is booby-trapped,
People are going off.
People who need help are going off. And the country is being held hostage by lunatics. The shutdown is in its third day.
When I first heard that it was a woman with a child, I thought, this is probably a desperate woman who wanted to get through to Obama and perhaps to plead her particular case to him. We have no idea how the sequester and now the shutdown are affecting others, be they Federal employees, military, or whoever. If anything, there is additional pressure being brought to bear on people who don’t need any more bad news.
We will probably know more in succeeding hours and days, but it’s been two weeks since the mass shooting at the Navy Yard. Now this.
How much farther down will we go?
This state of affairs cannot last.
Because all this is wrong.
