Well, now we go from shutdown to lockdown ... You just knew this was coming - somebody was bound to crack. I am surprised it did not happen much sooner. I have the sense that this is only the beginning. Unfortunately, the only thing that will come from this is more calls for gun control and eventual confiscation. Like the little twerp, Mr. “Dead fish,” said - Never let a good crisis go to waste.” I am sure they will play this “crisis” for every last dime they can ring out of it.

When your rhetoric includes “jihad”, “terrorists” and “extreme factions with bombs attached”, you create this kind of environment, Senators.

It is NOT clear at all if the woman had a gun or ever fired a gun.

Hearing reports that she did NOT have a gun, but not confirmed.

If the woman was unarmed, then it sounds like she was assassinated by over-zealous law enforcement. It sounds fishy that a woman would take a child along with her in a terrorist attack. They will have to find a gun to plant on her.

See my post 28. Republican Rep. Duffy from Wisconsin, an outspoken opponent to Obamacare, was grabbed and yelled at. He is unharmed.

Sorry everyone. My post 28 referred to a separate incident an hour or two prior to the current one. My mistake.

Personally I think it’s some fat, overweight DC union cop, who accidentally shot himself while reaching for his 2nd jelly donut! The media & demoRATs will play it up as if there was some sort of attack. I don’t trust a single thing coming from our gubmint any longer, especially with 0dumb0sh_t heading up the rogue regime.

Thanks for update. I am behind the reports. If this was a real threat, why would they lift the shelter in place? They would have no way of knowing whether this was a larger attack at this point. Brier making point that some reports are that she was UNARMED!! Possible pit maneuver which made her hit fence.

Thanks to the media and DC politics, the whole story is hopelessly screwed up....lol.

Harry must have told her that the shutdown was going to delay her welfare check - she just couldn’t take it any more ...

First, her free Obamaphone died ...

Then her government-supplied taxi service stopped running ...

Then her government-funded day-care closed its doors ...

Finally, Harry Reid told her - on national T.V. - that he did not give a DemoRat’s tail if her cancer-ridden child died ...

That was it - she snapped!

And it’s all the Republican’s fault! /s

My vain message to Obama—
You will NOT kill the American spirit. You don’t understand it because you don’t posses it. You pit neighbor against neighbor, and divide our society along lines of race and income and political affiliation. We see what you are doing and despite what your inner circle worshippers tell you,,,you are NOT succeeding. None of us will be surprised when you turn your tanks and law enforcement against your own people, like the Communist Chinese at Tianneman Square. You are pushing people to the brink on purpose. You are evil and you WILL be defeated.

If you combine this post with my previous posts....

As I understand it from CNN, they had a bead on the woman from the incident near the WH and followed her. When police shot her (presumably dead), child was discovered—— lockdown ban was immediately lifted.

This may turn out to be a OH SH-T moment for the police. Their defense will be, as CNN sees it, that once she had the altercation and sped away at high speed, “use of of force was authorized,” and presumably (big presume) justified.

The posts I have posted have been per CNN.

I heard she had a leased car. I hope she got the extended collision coverage, it really can be a good deal. For about $2 a month, you get $5000 worth of collision coverage, and believe you me, collision repair can be very expensive in the DC area ...
