US Capitol on Lock Down
« on: October 03, 2013, 01:48:18 PM »

The United States Capitol was placed on lockdown Thursday afternoon after shots were fired in the vicinity of the chamber. At least one Capitol Police officer was injured, officials said

The FBI was responding to the scene, and a helicopter landed in front of the Capitol. A message from the Capitol Police ordered anyone in a House office to "shelter in place."

"Close, lock and stay away from external doors and windows," the message said.

The House recessed, and the Senate went into a quorum call dispensing momentarily with its official business shortly thereafter.

NBC and other networks are saying a female driver rammed the White House gates with a car, then drove up to the Capitol, got out there and fired several shots before being shot herself (by the police or security folks, likely). This isn't confirmed by the police yet, but it is reported by a couple of tv news networks.

The suspect who had a child in the car was shot,

What a pathetic waste of oxygen that woman is. Getting yourself shot in front of a child. Bravo. Selfish b*tch. Is she dead?

Don't know yet. Police haven't released her condition.

A lot of news sites update existing pages instead of releasing new ones, so it's hard to keep track. =/

Here's to hoping the child wasn't hers or has a father to go to.

I'm reserving comment till more of the story comes out. This is a desperate time for some folks. That can tear a person to pieces and drive folks to wild actions.

That being said... all I can think about is how terrified that baby must have been after the crash and everything. Poor thing. :(

Yes we do not know, it might have been mental illness for all we know. It's not right to judge until all of the facts are had.

Without the child in the car... yes.

Why bring a child when you're doing something like this?

Maybe she was a single parent who didn't have anywhere to leave the child? Maybe everything was fine but the child's crying pushed her to a breaking point? There's no way of knowing what was happening in her life at this point so we shouldn't be drawing too many conclusions.

Told the OP in a pm twenty minutes ago, I'm somewhat surprised this kind of thing hasn't been happening in some crisis-stricken countries in Europe. Yes, there are a lot fewer guns over here but the despair and anger in some places are every bit as deep. And in Norway (which is not touched by the crisis) you essentially only needed one man with guns to have some heinous acts committed.

Many murder/suicides that involve children (and let's face it, shooting up a government building is essentially 'suicide by cop') also involve a parent who believes that they and the child are better off dead than in whatever situation has driven the parent to the breaking point.  I doubt she believed that either of them would survive.

It seems that the woman used her car as a weapon but was otherwise unarmed. The only shots fired were by the police.

The woman is dead, her one year old child is alive and apparently well. One police officer suffered minor injuries.
