Miriam Carey Shot Near The U.S. Capitol

Although it is true that we live in a time of potential terrorist attacks and armed lunatics who shoot innocent people for dumb reasons, no matter what your opinion is of what happened yesterday, the fact is that our police forces shot a single unarmed mother in front of her toddler.

Did the police not see that there was a child inside the car? How much of a threat was this woman? The press reports that she “flattened barricades” but were any of the police officers there in real fatal danger at any given time? There are no doubt a lot of unanswered questions.

The police once again acted by shooting first and asking questions later. We live in a society that condones and justifies armed violence. It’s all for the fatherland, isn’t? Our armed security personnel and soldiers overseas are unquestionably nothing but heroes….allegedly working without pay that day, going beyond the call of duty….but killing a demented woman in front of her little girl nonetheless.

It is at times like this that it sickens me to live in the U.S. and I fear for my two boys. God help us all.
