Another senseless mass shooting - this time near the White House.

At least one policeman has been flown to the hospital, a lot of shots fired, and the crazy woman killed.

From the news reports and sounds of all the gunshots, the woman was probably using an AR-15.

http://www.cnn.com/2013....ex.html

"The chase began when the woman driving a black sedan got involved in some kind of verbal altercation with officers at a security checkpoint a block from the White House, the intelligence source said.
As police cars arrived at the scene, the vehicle sped away and led police on a wild chase that included running red lights, according to the source.
When the vehicle approached the area of the Capitol building more than a mile away, several squad cars stopped it and officer "came out with their guns drawn," said Frank Schwing, a D.C. resident who witnessed what happened.
The armed officers tried to open the passenger side door, he said.
"At that point, the driver slammed into reverse, slammed into a cruiser, did a 180 (degree turn), took off, and at that point, there were a half dozen or so shots fired," Schwing told CNN, apparently all by small arms from police.
The black vehicle then crashed into security barriers closer to the Capitol building, said police and witnesses."

To the extent that description holds up you've got tragically standard road rage taking a fatal turn.  People in cars often think they're invincible, well, they are not.

One of the promising things about Obamacare is that the insurance provided has to cover mental health treatment.

Could go some way to begin bringing us back to national sanity and prevent untreated psychotic people from running amok in public.

There was no mass shooting.

The cnn article is relatively close, but early reports do not indicate that officers fired at the vehicle until it was stopped a second time when the driver tried to run over another officer.

A USCP officer was cut out of his cruiser when it struck a vehicle barrier.  He is reported to be talking and moving.

The subject is dead.

<What HSF posted>

This is pretty much what I figured.

Try to avoid arguing with the police. If you do, keep your hands away from your person and move slowly. Stay calm, and talk in a low, calm voice, however angry you may be.

I figured, after the dust cleared (and it hasn't really, even yet), we'd all find that it was only police weapons that were fired.

------------------------------------
A Story

Once upon a time, there was a news story I heard coming home from work in Dallas (I think the incident took place in Plano) in which an Asian woman was dropping off her child at a local school.

This woman watched far too much cable news TV (apparently), and was extremely nervous about "violent altercations". From reports of the incident, she apparently had fashioned an entire suit from flattened cans, like a sort of "chain mail" garment, and was wearing it when this happened.

So, anyway, she drops off her child, but forgot to give the child his/her lunch bag. So, she drove back to the school, parked the vehicle and furtively entered the school building with the lunch bag. A security person apparently tried to stop her to ask what she was doing, so she dropped the bag, turned and ran, then drove off rapidly. The police were summoned, chased her, and ultimately shot her to death (as I recall), and it turned out she was merely very "skittish".

Sad, but true. I have no idea what happened today, but I suspect something vaguely similar.

Mass shooting ???   Maybe she was perfectly sane and was upset that she couldn't sign up for Obamacare when she logged on.

More tragically she was following her GPS that told her she had to drive straight down Pennsylvania Ave. that's been closed off since 9/11 and after fighting DC traffic and street "Patterns" all afternoon just didn't have much left and when faced with a security blockade versus her insistent voiced GPS she just lost it.

Stranger things.

So you think he might not have said that or at the very least might not have implied it?

IF so why did Griffin delete the tweets?

what does that mean?

but if it was in poor taste doesn't that imply that the Griffin did in fact blame Democrats or
at least the very least imply that was his intention?

and if that is the case then there would be no need to start your sentence with "If  he has"
since he did
