In DC, Esrus, yes. Remember where this took place, and their focus is on protecting the politicians and themselves, first and foremost.

I was looking at that too, why they did not try to shoot out tires, before shooting into the vehicle, nothing in their reports thus far, even indicates that they had any reason to believe that she was armed, with anything but the vehicle. But I'm not sure if this would've been handled any differently, in a different time, though, but I agree, cops are much too aggressive in dealing with the public, in many circumstances.

Would the DC police have been as willing to riddle the car with bullets if the mother had been white?


In DC, Esrus, yes.

That was murder of a citizen by police. Had enough yet America?


She was unarmed and had her baby with her. Yet one more in a series of trigger happy jackbooted murderers hiding behind badges who murder more unarmed non-combatants that the criminals do. Trickle down attitude toward American Citizens that starts from the white house.

Shots from the Senate ? Just where the open hot mic incident paradoxes at ? An the woman "trapped" at the barrier by patrol cars ? When in fear she very well could've been trying to get the WH to notice that,"hey, these police are trying to kill me for no reason? Which ironically is the exact case ! I believe an investigation desperately needs to be done as to where phone calls were made to police, at what time, and by whom. I will bet every Chinese Yuan in China that it will leave a dirty trail back to the Senator's office and this whole process was to smoke screen the comments made regarding the Debt Ceiling.

The timeline is quite interesting, that right at the same time 2 republican senators get caught with open mic talk about derailing the debt crisis an this woman is chased by Capitol Hill Police, and shot and killed. When they have Absolute Surveillance Supremacy, they simply couldn't let the woman go and arrest her later ? Media coverage completely forgot the big story about the open mic at that point. All focus on an unarmed black woman with child was possibly trying to get to the WH where a black president could protect her ? Smell any rats ? The story stinks people.
