Women May Have Thought Obama Was Stalking Her

From NBC News:

Woman in DC chase may have thought Obama was stalking her, sources say

By Pete Williams and Erin McClam | October 4, 2013

Investigators have found indications that the woman who led authorities on a chase from the White House to the Capitol before she was shot to death by police thought that President Barack Obama was stalking her, law enforcement sources told NBC News.

Notice how we are not told why she may have thought that. Which is a little curious. (Could she have been blaming Obama for some of the bad things in her life? Like losing her job?)

The sources said that the woman, Miriam Carey, had a history of mental health problems. The chase, on Thursday afternoon, stirred panic in the capital and briefly stopped the mechanisms of government…

Which we thought were already stopped.

Carey, 34, was a dental hygienist living in Stamford, Conn. Details of her background began to emerge in the hours after the episode.

Dr. Barry Weiss, a dentist, told NBC Connecticut that Carey was working for him in January 2012 when she suffered a fall and missed two to three weeks. He said that she appeared increasingly stressed after an unplanned pregnancy. Relatives have said that she may have suffered postpartum depression…

Note how we never hear whether there is a husband involved. That is probably considered to be a rude question these days.

Weiss said that he fired her in August 2012 after patients complained that she was too rough.

She is also supposed to have had her baby back in August 2012, which seems like a long time ago for postpartum depression.

Carey was driving a black Infiniti sedan when, just after 2 p.m. ET, she struck a security fence outside the White House. She took off after hitting a Secret Service officer with her car.

From there, police said, she sped up Pennsylvania Avenue toward the Capitol, reaching 80 mph at one point. Police and the Secret Service stopped her at the foot of the Capitol, but she jammed the car into reverse and took off again as police opened fire.

Carey led police on a chase around the perimeter of the Capitol and crashed her car outside a Senate office building a few minutes later, police said. The police shot at her, and she died a short time later…

A Capitol police officer was hurt as he was speeding to confront her and hit a barrier that popped up in the street. The two injured officers were exempt from the government shutdown and required to work but were not being paid.

Every single article on this incident reports this detail. And not a single one mentions that the House has passed a bill to fund the DC government.

Meanwhile, the news media must be suffering from their own form of depression this morning. They thought they had another ‘gun violence story.’ And, naturally, they hoped it would turn it to be a male white right winger at fault somewhere.

But no, she didn’t even have a gun. And she was a mom, and she was was black. In fact, she might have even been a single mother, who are particularly sanctified. What a terrible outcome for the news media.

Still, that didn’t stop Sheila Jackson Lee from trying to blame the incident it on the shutdown, and thereby the evil Republicans.

Sheila Jackson Lee Invokes Slain D.C. Driver in Speech on Shutdown

October 3, 2013

Sheila Jackson Lee: "God knows, the tragedy of this poor person who came on the Hill in a black car–no one knows what drive [sic] this person to do this–but what I would say to you is, let’s get our wheels back on, serve the American people, bring them back, vote for a bill today that will open the government, I will stay here until we get that bill on the floor, piecemeal is undeserving of America."

‘No justice, no piecemeal!’

By the way, do ‘poor’ people drive luxury cars like Infinitis in Ms. Jackson Lee’s world? Come to think of it, maybe they do.

    “crashed her car outside a Senate office building … police shot at her and she died.”

    Why was it necessary to kill this woman once her car had been stopped?

    The entire country is a tinderbox.

    Let’s see,

    (Unarmed) Black female single-mom (with baby in seat in back): CHECK

    Evil, authority-stricken police with delusions of godhood: CHECK

    So….where’s Al Sharpton? Where’s Jesse Jackson?

    Isn’t this a natural extrapolation of that white hispanic case in Flo-da?

    I mean, clearly the police were following her. She was just coming from da sto after getting some “candy” and an “iced tea”, right?

    Isn’t she the victim here? And the police the aggressors?

    I realize I’m being trivial here but I’m just illustrating the point that goes back to the ridiculous assessments made by the media regarding the way things are reported….which is why this website is here, among a few others.

    But Steve’s rapier wit always, ALWAYS reveals the foolhardy ink-junkies and their inability to grasp the obvious.

    I’ve got an article written for a major Conservative blog, but haven’t yet mustered the nerve — literally — to put my name to it. It describes the appalling state of armed men all around us, empowered to wield formerly military-grade violence on the citizens of America. For hair-trigger reasons. And afterwards blame the victim and get all Authoritarian about why they had to exercise extreme unction.

    While roving drug gangs, inner city gangs and political gangs are tearing apart the country from inside without consequence. Here’s where I am stuck. Not wanting to associate my name with the facts as they are ..

    .. I ask, “Who are these armed men? Why do they take pay from government to stick a gun in our face and dominate any situation as if they’re threatened? Even for a speeding ticket? Better yet, who are the men at 70 Federal Regulatory Agencies armed to the gills? What kind of man wants a gun and authority to get all up in our face like a Storm Trooper. And finally I ask, “Who willingly works for the IRS? Are these really citizens? What citizen of the United States would willingly, nay, gleefully take pay to punish their fellow citizens?”

    You can see why I’m carefully considering putting my name to that. But it’s still the Truth. Who would do such a thing? Because we’re speaking of really, seriously disturbed people. Not just the Lois Lerners but the rank and file who every day go to their jobs in order to work the Will of con men and Grifters wielding power not found in our founding Laws.

    And it’s coming to a head.
