We must deal openly and honestly with mental illness in the black community. Just like most of their white counterparts, every person of color who has committed these public acts that lead to violence, from this lady to the Navy Yard shooter, were all suffering with mental illness. There should be more support in our community in providing help for these people, just as if they had cancer or heart disease, conditions that are readily understood and accepted as illness. The same should be true with mental illness before we have others to perish and put others in harm's way.
I strongly believe her intentions weren't to get shot, Maybe she just wanted to get heard and they wouldn't allow her to go through so she rammed int the barriers. That's just my assumption. Her baby was in the car. I seriously believe she meant no harm. She also didn't have any weapons on her. They should of just shot her tires out.
You are correct empresslibra, I read this story on the. Daily News yesterday, it stated an unarmed woman drove thru the barricade and hit a few cars before she was killed by police, this same story ended by sharing that the last person that did the exact same thing, BUT, he was armed AND he KILLED two officers! He lived to tell it AND wasn't even charged because of "mental" issues! Really! Why didn't they just shoot her tires? We all know this answer, right?
IF SHE WAS A WHITE 31 YEAR OLD WOMAN WITH A 1-YEAR OLD IN THE CAR THEY WOULDN'T HAVE SHOT AND KILLED HER, THEY WOULD HAVE SHOT THE TIRES OUT OR BARRICADED HER IN WITH POLICE CARS. WAKE UP BLACK PEOPLE YOUR LIFE MEANS NOTHING AND A WHITE LIFE HAS A HIGHER VALUE PLACED ON IT.
I agree with the above poster @empresslibra, something is just not right about this story. Usually in a car chase authorities use techniques to slow down the car with police vehicles or spikes to flatten the tires. Why the over kill? By the time they shot the woman the car was stopped and there was no where for her to go.
Also, with something of this nature possibly involving national security, officials usually want the suspect alive for questioning to find out why they committed the crime. But the police silenced her permanently, which makes one ask what where they really trying to cover up?
And postpartum depression is not going to get it either
This site is too silly...What does this woman allege political affiliation has to do with this?
Her family stated she had a history of mental issues.You want to actually lessen the impact this woman's death will have on her family because YOU say she was a "Tea Party member or a Republican?.......There is a child left mother-less and yet for MTO, it's all about this women ALLEGE politics?--->Whoa!
HAHA ty ^ Who the **** cares if she is BLACK or BEAUTIFUL? This crazy lady was driving like a lunatic ramming police cars and barracades w/ a one year old in her car. Focus on that part Ma.. Who cares what color she is or if she was ugly or not. Whoever runs this site OOZES ignorance. And fix the grammar on your home page for god's sake.. It's "you're" not "your". Go one w/ your 5th grade edumacation lol. What has the world come to?! :(
wow what was she on ?? and i also believe they could habe taken another measure to get her to stop..she had no gun?? so why shoot her no need for deadly force unless someone was injured by her .... seemingly she had some type of mental defect in her mind to even attempt a fet like that ...who acts a fool in front of the white hous? knowing you could be killed
MTO is just a aminstream media website for our pice of SHIT GOVERNMENT!!! anytime something happens they blame it on the tea party and blah blah blah!! !FUK OBAMA AND MTO AND OUR PIECE OF SHIT GOVT! you all need to get guns and food supplies... shit is going to get crazy SOON!
She wasn't even close to being a freedom fighter and it wasn't overkill. Keep it real. She hit a police officer at the White House, then sped off from cops where she was cornered and crashed into a cop car and hit another officer, then drove off again! At this point you don't know if she has a gun or not, but she is using her car as a weapon and hitting officers in the process. Moments later she hit another police car. Based on that alone the police did exactly what they're supposed to do and neutralized the threat. She had issues. It's a sad situation, but the cops weren't at fault.
DUH... SHE HAD OBAMAS SECRET BABY.
AND WAS TRYING TO GET THAY CHILD SUPPORT, BUT SECURITY KEPT TURNING HER AWAY.
SHE WAS JUST GONNA GO STRAIGHT TO MICHELLE AND LET THE CAT OUT THE BAG.
SO PRESIDENT WAS LIKE, IF YOU SEE THIS H0E. SHOOT TO KILL.
Oh please my10cents, did you even see the video or read anything but MTO? She used her car as a weapon and you don't mess with the Capitol--no matter what color you are--their instructions are shoot to kill in that situation. Secret service had no way to know if she was mentally ill, if she had explosives, etc. Other comments here about why didn't they shoot out the tires, that only happens in the movies and it isn't easy to do. Even if they had shot out the tires, they could have themselves died because anyone could have popped up from the back seat with a firearm. They did what they were suppose to do.
I guess people here police hating would rather the President and family didn't have the protection they deserve? Then I'm sure you'd have something to say about that too!
YOU GUYS NEED TO LOOK THRU THE LIES AND PROPAGANDA...THIS SITUATION IS FAR TOO OBVIOUS...ONE SHE WASNT DEPRESSED OR GOING THRU DEPRSSION, SHE KNEW SOMETHING THAT THE POWERS THAT BE DIDNT WANT OUT AND SHE WAS TRYING TO BE HEARD OR SPILL HER TEA TO THE PRESIDENT
SHE WAS NOT ARMED NOR WAS SHE TRYING TO BE MILICIOUS (IN REGARDS OF DRIVING HER CAR THRU THE SECURITY GATES AT THE WHITE HOUSE)
SHE HAD INFORMATION THAT SHE WAS KILLED TO NOT BE RELEASED
DONT YOU FIND IT IRONIC THAT THE GOV FORCES WOULD ENSURE HER DEATH INSTEAD OF DIISABLING THE CAR AND GET ANSWERS TO HER IRRATIC BEHAVIOR
WAKE UP PEOPLE
DONT BELIEVE THE LIES BEING TOLD BY THE PRESS
I'm glad some people in this thread get it. I have seen many a car chase where people rammed into things including other people and the police made every attempt at stopping the offending vehicle they only shot at the person if they jumped out the car and charged at them @whyteboybytes. I understand that this is the capital but it in fact WAS OVERKILL @Henny Van der Sloot.
Some of the people like @blackmm can't see the forest for the trees, my point has nothing to do with her race, it was the manner in which this whole incident was handle it was a bit overzealous, which makes me think there is more to the story than what is being release to the public. Call it a conspiracy theory all you want but I bet some of you where the same people who thought the government wasn't watching, listening, recording, and reading you every (electronic) move.
Please get a clue, sheeple.
first of all, why did this become the bresticles page? seriously Ms Super Negra had a few people feeling a little insecure, just sayin....
and yes she was beautiful, and yes this story is fishy af. I did read that she may have been suffering with some mental health issues, but nobody here knows what that means exactly or if that had anything at all to do with this incident.
Most of you are all ignorant fools. One thing I know for sure is that the government lies 24/7.
This poor woman was freaked out with her child by the jacked-up trigger happy police unhappy she did not bow down to their commands. Word has it she just tried to get away from a checkpoint and when she did these gunned-up government goons pulled their weapons and decided to shoot first and ask questions later. Nine of this made sense with her child in the car.
LOL no mention of how the woman was on meds for Bi-Polar, Depression and Schizophrenia. She though Obama was monitoring her. You drive your vehicle towards officers they have the right to and will fire on you. LOL @ shooting her tires out, you would need a shotgun for that and its rarely ever done, probably never anymore.
First, she was 34, not 31. This site must not even try to get news right. And people saying she shouldn't have be killed....she was driving through DC at 82 miles per hour. Running her car into things. If she wasn't killed she would have killed innocent people or even her daughter. It's a sad story, but it could have ended worse. As a DC resident, I'm thankful for how our police handled the situation. Quick thinking in a tough situation.
All I want to know what type of medication she was prescribed and what was life like before she started taking it these pharmaceutical companies are paying these doctors to use us like guinea pigs rest in piece my black sister and forgive these people for not knowing you from a can of beans cause if you believe what the media say then your they guinea pigs
The color of her skin didn't matter. Stop using it as an excuse. She went crazy in DC and got killed. They tried to get her to stop when she backed up and ran into a car. They gave her a lot of chances. Also they didn't know if she had a bomb or something. Not everything is about race .
All these dum dum cop "boot lickers" is disgusting. The news said this woman was driving around shooting a gun out the window. You all been had by the government goon media. Careful asking a cop for directions next time or you might be executed like this poor troubled woman.
She went for the white house. If u r on a mission to die then she went to the right.place. any person, vehicle or air craft without permission to b at the Whitehouse is gonna get taken out, we learned ohr 9/11 lesson.
.hw was da popo suppose to handle this, shoot her tires, keep telling her to get out the car. Dat chick put da car in reverse after bein bloc in (go watch da video) by da cops. As far as da cops were concerned she was goin to finish wat she started n could've been a terrorist, not some buttmonkey sufferin frm clinical depression. As as far as Im concerthey did wat they had to do.there's no conspiracy. I feel for her family cuz they're in shock n in denial and lookin to blame someone for their sis death. But da facts r dat their sis came unglued n put the prez in danger as well da public n her innocent babygurl. Da cops did well any other approach could've killed da baby n only God knows wat else.
@caspar she didn't need to have a.gun.she demonstrated her intentions wen she tried to break into the white house w her car injuring law enforcement officials. Then proceeded to drive reckless w her baby in the car. So who put the baby in da car ?da gov't? Who drove frm her home to DC,? And who ran dat car
into da barricades? Stp drinking dat spiked cherry cool aid its dryin.up ur brain cells
I haven't read anything about her being republican
and even if she were would it matter, there is no difference between two parties at that level
just fyi you cant become president unless you were absolute s*cum who was willing to sell your country down the river...just sayin
