THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Obama, capitol police are getting a free pass

On a former NBA player’s preference of other men for sex, on “If I had a son …” and police were wrong, way back for that beer summit. Has he yet announced a guilty party in the woman ramming White House barriers and later shot dead? Has any reporter asked “Mr. President, how do you feel?” The woman said Obama was stalking her, so doesn’t that accusation need a rebuttal?

First reports about the woman that attempted to crash the gates said that she fired shots at the police and I said the police were justified in killing her.

But now reports say that she was not armed except for her car. If I remember correctly, she crashed her car into another one, and it was disabled. If this is true then why did they shoot her? She was no longer a danger to anyone if the car was not able to move. Basically dropping her weapon.

So I guess the lesson learned is that the Capitol police can kill unarmed folks and not be held accountable. Kind of like their big boss is doing to America.
