Here’s why the officer was hurt. Image 16.
Yahoo changed the photo order! Not sure if it still works.
the “authorities” were shooting madly! To say the town is on-edge seems to under-rate how worked up these people are. There seemed no reason for a horde of cops to go ape-shit on that little car, but they did!
I’m hearing different things here. So did the lady actually try to ram a barrier or did they overreact? Or both?
Yeah, she drove into one.
In a sedan, with a kid? And “rammed” or drove into? There are many barriers in DC, some even pop out of the ground. I’m just asking becuse the distiction is important I think and the media isn’t helping, being first is probably more important.
Yeah, being first is the media priority.
According to the Washington Post:
It began near the White House, at 15th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue NW. Oregon residents B.J. and Susan Campbell saw a black Infinity driven by a woman heading west on Pennsylvania, into a security checkpoint. The driver went about 20 yards, B.J. Campbell said, before rapidly turning the car around at the concrete security barriers.
“The Secret Service guy was just having a cow,” B.J. Campbell said. “Yelling at her and banging on the car.” The Secret Service officers pulled a black metal gate into her path and she slowed to try to go around it. Then the agent moved the gate in front of her again.
At that point “she just gunned it,” B.J. Campbell said. “She ran the barricade down and the guy; knocked him up onto her hood. He rolled off into the street and she tore off down Pennsylvania Avenue.” The whole encounter lasted about 20 seconds, he said.
wow, I’m sure there is a lot more to this story. Thank you for that post.
Sounds a little fucked-up to me (see the link I posted to Jack below)
Thanks, I did.
Thanks, waverly. I wonder if we’ll ever know what caused her to go over the edge.
I do not see it mentioned anywhere that she had a gun, so it must have been law enforcement firing at her to get her to stop or whatever.
the cops just went completely ape-shit, and started shooting madly. That’s what I’m seeing in the video I’ve seen. It looks like she just panicked, understandable considering they were all in her face pointing guns and she had a kid in the car.
As the United States comes ever closer to defaulting on its debts, corporate and Wall Street executives who for years have been bankrolling the Republican Party are beginning to get nervous. Their Republican Party has become a Frankenstein monster. These corporate patrons of the GOP don’t mind a temporary shutdown, because their low taxes and special loopholes aren’t affected, and many regulations aren’t being enforced. But a default would cause bond prices to plummet, interest rates to surge, stocks to sink through the floorboards of the New York Stock Exchange, and the global entire financial system to suffer a major blow.
But what can the titans of corporate America do now that the monster they’ve created is on a rampage? Plenty. They can cancel all GOP funders, stop writing checks to Republican senators and representatives and instruct their corporate PACs do do the same, tell their Washington lobbyists to cease all activities on behalf of the GOP, and urge all their suppliers, contractors, and corporate customers to follow their lead.
In other words, they can starve the beast.
They can also tell the President that they will stand behind him when he decides to ignore the debt ceiling and continue to pay the nation’s bills even if the monster throws a tantrum.
Idealistic to say the least, but their bank accounts are what they really care about, so he does have a point. As soon as their wallets take a large enough hit anything is possible… so long as those very same people don’t rush headlong to bail them out.
Agreed – yet, it may give those people some ideas.
I think the Koch Bros see this as an early X-mas.
If they even do a small percentage of what he suggests it would be devastating to them, excellent! They do seem to be starting to wise up and see the monster they’ve made, again excellent!
What is happening people?
madness, fanaticism, shots fired. same shit, different day.
Jack here’s what happened:
I think we’re seeing the after-effects when hope breaks.
You may be right, bubba.
the lady shooter is either dead or very seriously injured…all the drama is over
Hey, someone is pissed at the folks on Capitol Hill!
I wonder what that can be about?
Elizabeth Warren is on the floor of the Senate now
Gawd,,I love that woman!!!!
Afternoon People of the Realm!!!!
Ok I’m caught up. She was killed the child is ok. Who knows what the provocation was but it definitely sounds like some emotional issue.
No word on that yet,,,motive
U.S. Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine said that all shots had been fired by police officers trying to stop the woman’s car.
Here Major, This is the Washington Post’s version
thank you wav!
Sounds like a psychotic episode, and with child too. Psychologically vulnerable people can snap when pushed to the breaking point, they need help. So lets just make mental health treatment even more unaffordable, republicans. That’s the smart thing to do. What a tragedy.
I feel that will be the reason she snapped.
A mother (?) who would do that with a kid in the car is not firing on all cylinders. Suicide by cop? We may never know.
People in America are unhappy, desperate, angry. Politicians need to wake up.
I think I saw somewhere that her vehicle had Connecticut plates. I wonder what she was doing in DC ?
If voters were as alert as they should be, the rating of Congress would not be 10%, it would be ZERO%.
Maybe the zombie apocalypse is here?
remember,,,aim for the head
The societal pressure continues to grow, soon the usual pressure relief methods of honey-boo-boo, and maury povich “reality” tv aren’t going to be sufficient… A glorious day that will be!
Ok I think we need a new page to lighten the mood.
Congressman Castigates Park Ranger For The Memorial Closure He Voted For
I don’t wish harm on anyone but if this guy accidentally fell into a wood chipper I’m not sure I’d lose any sleep over it.
the crowd should have picked him up and carried him back to the House,,,dump
him there,,,and tell him to “GO DO YOUR JOB NUMB-NUTS!!
These people are delusional, it’s like that saying if you hear a lie long enough you start to believe it.
So did this woman make a wrong turn into the security gate and then tried to turn around to exit? Coming in at the tail end – can anyone answer this?
Apparently she really tried to ram the gate and almost ran a guy over. Waverly posted some info on that. https://jackholesrealm.wordpress.com/2013/10/02/shutdown-page-2/#comment-640704
