This is what I read:
'The car chase began just shortly after 2 p.m. on Thursday when Carey hit a White House security fence with her car. Law enforcement officials say a total of 26 shots were fired by both Secret Service and Capitol Police officers as they pursued and tried to stop Carey, who was unarmed, in her black Infinity Sedan as she approached the Capitol. She was stopped by police and Secret Service at the foot of the Capitol when she bailed from her car. The cops opened fire, and she died a short time later.'
It's easy for critics to say 'they should have done this' 'they should have said that differently.'...... Yes very easy to say from the comfort of your armchair.
I for one am grateful the police, and not the bleeding hearts, are protecting our/our Allies landmarks. Who know's what strife we would be in then...
Without engaging further in the discussion, I'm going to OT for a second.
VP, I apologise. My reply to you was rude and snarky and uncalled for. Or it reads back to me that way today anyway. So, I apologise.

Bleeding hearts arm chair warriors. It's like it is supposed to be some kind of insult or something? But isn't that exactly what every single person on here is in some kind of way?
I don't think anyone thinks they know better VP. I think people are discussing wether there could have been other options than shooting a mentally ill woman in the head in front of her child, which will most likely traumatise said child for the rest of her life. Now that I have heard it was an accident, and they weren't trying to kill her, it makes me feel a bit better about it. Also, the authorities aren't always completely in the right, there have been vast amounts of miscarriages of justice and coverups, throughout history. I will never just agree 100% without question. I will always question, because history has shown time and again that we should question.
My impression has been that authorities did not know she had a child in the back of her car, and there's obviously no way to know if she was mentally ill, a terrorist, etc until after they catch her. She could have gotten out of the car with her arms raised when they surrounded her in front of the capital but she reversed, jammed into a cop car and sped off...what are the authorities meant to think is happening when somebody first tries to get into the White House and then heads for the Capital and still refuses to stop even when surrounded? My first assumption when I heard about this story was that it was a terrorist or p*ssed off federal worker that had been put on furlough that was trying to do something.
I really wonder if everyone would be in such an uproar about the authorities opening fire in this situation if she had been a man.
