Washington (CNN) - She had a 1-year-old child inside and apparently was unarmed.
Instead, the motorist's black Infiniti, according to authorities, itself became a weapon Thursday afternoon, first striking a security barrier and U.S. Secret Service officer near the White House before hurtling down some of the capital's most famous streets, police cruisers in pursuit.
Dramatic video taken minutes later near the U.S. Capitol showed the vehicle backing into a police vehicle before the chase resumed. Gunshots rang through the traffic circle. The motorist was shot by police just a few blocks away.
Police are not obligated to defend the citizen in any way: Warren vs District of Columbia, Castle Rock vs Gonzales...most of us people have no special security or protection. Perhaps if more people were armed, we'd be less concerned about when liberals get crazy and stupid and go on a car rampage or shoot cops, like the one that shot Gabby Giffords.
It was someone in a car.........the shots fired might of been from the cops.
One person injured ?
Jamboli- What makes you think our incompetent government can keep us safe after they ban weapons? They can't do anything right. PLUS last time I checked meth is illegal and that doesn't seem to be stopping any of the criminals on it. AND OOOOH YEAH, were you aware of all the Mexican drug cartels? You think we can keep them from shipping guns over the border? ANYONE that thinks banning guns in this country is the answer needs to GTFO. The right to bare arms WILL NOT BE INFRINGED. DEAL WITH IT.
Obviously a right-wing, left-wing, tea bagging, commy hippie, angry white redneck, black thug, muslim, christian, illegal alien, disgruntled government employee.
Who knows maybe it was a disgruntled Federal employee? There are probably a few of people who maybe driven to do crazy things over this shutdown.
The problem with gun control is that it doesn't usually stop anything.
2nd American Revolution.
Aren't guns illegal in DC? Guess someone forgot to tell those with criminal intent. All you gun control nuts please take note, gun control doesn't work!
Another month, another shooter. Why do these insane people feel the need to murder innocent people? What does that accomplish? What does that get them? I just don't understand. People, please, please, stop and think before going on some crazed rampage. It solves nothing. It gets you nowhere good. All it does is bring the entire world's hatred down upon you. Who wants that?
There will be more if the Government stays shutdown, maybe Obama was the target...lmao
Some Gov. employee found out what it's like to be unemployed and couldn't take it
He picked the wrong day. The people who deserve it are at home smokin cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo.
Who stopped the shooter, Zimmerman?
Rather than complain about gun control how bout we talk about how much these events have happened since Obam took office
this is not going to speed up anybody's decisions lets just shoot at someone and hope everything is going to get resolved. people need to think
If only they'd been locked down 3 days ago before this debacle! Now that they're locked down, maybe they'll actually get done what needs to be done!
Aren't guns allowed in the Capital per the 2nd ??
Good! I hope they got a Congressman. 1 day till this stupidity ends.
JohnnyB – the OEC is the Office of Emergency Communications and the USCP is the United States Capitol Police. It realy would be nice if the initial names were explained in reports.
Bet it was a disgruntled wh*te woman.
Stop Obama! Stop spying/surveillance. Stop government meddling in America's healthcare; defund Obamacare. Stop illegal immigration/immigration reform (that's coming next). Stop fighting wars for Israel. Stop the kill lists.
gee can your font get any bigger you terrorists??? you love this crappy word press comment system that goes with the political ticker blog dont you boys, so you can distort and manipulate reality some more. gee thats terrorism under the patriot act!
You liberals are insane, DC has the strictest gun laws in the country yet would you walk your dog there at 2AM? Theres' more violence in DC than a video game.
A Tea Party event at the Capital?
Aren't guns illegal in DC? Can we please remind everyone that they are not permitted. We also need to remind Chicago that they are not allowed as well. It seems a few people forgot.
