Shots Fired in D.C.!

Perp's dead. Looked like she was driving a car with CT plates, from some stills I've seen.

A woman? From CT? Ned smells liberal, hence his excitement. But the "perp" was ramming the gates at the White House, why?

Ramming the gates with a gun would probably be even less effective.

Thanks to Ned's Teapartiers, the Capitol Police involved in this incident aren't getting paid for their dangerous work.

From cnn.
"The timing on this was really kind of scary," said Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas. "Capitol Hill police are at a lower personnel level because of the shutdown."

Maybe he should've acted like fellow Texas Republican rep Neugebauer and blamed the Capitol police for staffing levels.

Wonder if the perp had a connection to someone in the WH? An Obama relative? A jilted lover?

Will we every find out?

Ned, since the Capitol police officer who was injured wasn't getting paid, should federal dollars for medical care be denied, as well as his pay check? Inquiring minds want to know.

(Cue silly photo in response.)

Insufficient facts. Was he a union thug?

RIP Miriam Carey. The breaking news of the "Capitol Hill shooter" has disappeared into the memory hole after it turns out Ms. Carey, an African-American dental hygienist, had no gun, had her 1-year old in the car, and whose crime was apparently freaking out behind the wheel after being pursued by heavily armed police for running into a security checkpoint that was part of a military drill. Friends and family are incredulous.

Let the record show that the media lied about shots being fired, the police used excessive, lethal force rather than shooting at Carey's tires, and now the media is trying to blame the episode on post-partum depression.

I've seen the light. It's not the mentally unstable person behind the wheel that's responsible. It's the car, and easy access to them. I blame AAA and the politicians who cave to its legendary powerful lobby.
