Ricardo Klement: Fox says it was a female who tried to ram the white house gate, fled to the capitol, opened fire on people, AND HAD A BABY IN THE CAR!


The baby did it.

"had" or "birthed"?
...and just because it's FoxNews, "baby" or "fetus"?

24 hour news producers everywhere just had a mysterious involuntary orgasm when you said that.

And yet my sex is like Stonehenge.

You mean in danger of getting trodden on by a dwarf?

Right new to a motorway and costs £25?


Stonehenge costs 25 now? Wow I paid 8 back in 1998 and that was the most expensive admission for any site I paid the entire time I was there.

3:1 odds that this was Jennifer Tilly.

JusticeandIndependence: TuteTibiImperes: According to federal officials:

2:15ish a woman in a black car tried to ram a back-end security gate at the White House

Secret Service started chasing her

She pulled off at 2nd and Constitution and started shooting

CNN is showing a police car all banged up, missing a door, and the airbag deployed.


They're saying the injured police officer wasn't shot, so maybe he crashed in the chase?

The reports are the the woman had a gun, fired on the Secret Service and Police officers, and was shot in the exchange.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: Atypical Person Reading Fark: CNN says the female had a gun.   They aren't saying how they know this.  Their reporter on the ground still seems to be working on which street the car was on.

They're prolly assuming the bullets she fired came from some sort of gun


But there's no evidence of bullets coming from her car.  The police admit they shot at the car and there are bullet holes in the woman's car.

Still waiting for evidence that there was exchange of gunfire.  She apparently bumped into a police car good enough to set off its airbags, then they chased her and shot her.

Yet, some inside source says she did fire...there's a video of her "suspicious driving maneuvers" but not of her shooting at anyone.

Rincewind53: Hahahaha Georgetown Law literally just texted me saying shelter in place. farking late, you morons.


My school's actually pretty good about this. Not only do they have texts, there's actually systems set up on all school-owned computers so that they flip to an alert screen (and make a noise) when there's an alert. The last time something happened, they actually got the lockdown message out within about two minutes of the reports of gunshots.

... Granted, I, uh, also attend Virginia Tech, so they probably invested a lot into this.

blatz514: Apparently there was a car chase.


Wow the two different pictures of the people laying down shows no movement, and the background is different so it's not just a different angle.  Doesn't look good.

pedobearapproved: groppet: skozlaw: valar_morghulis: Take notice, GOP -- when you govern by crisis, toying with people's lives, odds are you'll be pushing some deranged individuals already close to breaking over the edge.

To be fair, even in that area, you're in D.C. Odds are a lot better it's unrelated street violence than a shooting targeting government officials.

A lot of D.C. is sort of a shiathole.

Hey DC today is a billion times sfer than it was in the late 80s/early 90s. Back then the local fox channel had a tv show every week jsut for the murders that happend that week. Hell I still remember when Chinatown was real sketchy (pre arena)

/off my lawn

Better doesn't mean good. "Dear son. It's so much better here at the home. They only beat us every other day now"


Parts of DC are safe. Other parts are less safe. It is always safer if your smarter and know the area and keep your head up. But we also had a drive by at rugby practice sooooooooo its not like "safe."

Why does anyone think that tweet has anything to do with the shooting?

It came 1 minute after the same man tweeted "Gun shots outside the Capitol".  Hard to say it has nothing to do with it, unless it was a scheduled tweet with terrible timing.


It's not hard to say the tweet has nothing to do with the shooting. It came just after a very forceful speech by the president. Unless there's an actual reason to believe the tweet concerned the shooting, you assume it didn't until shown otherwise.

Well considering she apparently shot people, I'd say that's a pretty fair assumption.

Car_Ramrod: Grand_Moff_Joseph: And Rep. Issa just blew through a police barricade in his car.  What an ass.

Christ, what an asshole.

I'm pretty sure that as a felony, that's an impeachable offense. Just sayin'.

The shooting today is a terrible and inexcusable tragedy and an act of terroism. No one but the shooter is to blame. I tweeted out of emotion but agree that the timing was not helpful.


what a nert - seriously - i think worse of him now than i did before

Really?  Cause Wolf Blitzer asked the reporter holed up in Harry Reid's office if now was a bad time to do a sit down interview.  AJ got some big shoes to fill if they're going to top that.


Who's got a link to the live feed?

Pavia_Resistance: ModernPrimitive01: I'm not trolling but I wonder what all those that fight tooth and nail against any sort of gun regulation feel now? Would this change any views?

I kind of remember that after Gabby Giffords was shot there were GOP congresscritters backing a law that would prohibit firearms anywhere within a certain distance from elected federal officials.

Obviously I don't remember much in the way of detail.


As I recall, Representative Pete King (IRA-NY) proposed the legislation, which certainly would have deterred individuals intent upon committing violent acts against elected officials, due to such individuals' willingness to comply with the law.

Desquamation: Atypical Person Reading Fark: Contrabulous Flabtraption: Breaking News...CNN: Dead female suspect reportedly angry over temp. closing of fed-funded abortion clinic

Wow, this is certainly a fast denouement to this story.

It's CNN so you can be assured it's completely wrong.


True.  Although, the part on CNN where they watch the videos and we watch along with them is helpful.

My problem right now with CNN is that they are showing two different cars (both black).  The CNN reporters don't seem to realize it's two different cars yet.

I can say this, though.  If you wanted to run around the Capitol without being stopped, you should get some big letters on the back of your jacket that say POLICE or ATF.

This is just too freaking bizarre.  Guess she just went off the deep end, for whatever reason.  It happens, but it's USUALLY a man it seems.

Sounds like a mashup of the "woman kills children then self" pattern and "suicide-by-cop".
