Another gun death in America, but don’t expect an outcry from the anti-gun lobby this time. Instead, the gang who chased and shot dead Miriam Carey, a 34-year-old dental hygienist, will be hailed as heroes. It’s amazing what difference a black uniform and a badge makes.
Already the establishment media is pumping out details of the victim’s mental health records, crafting a narrative to explain away why she had to die, even though she was not armed and had got out of her car when they shot her.
What seems to have happened is; she took a wrong turning and found herself suddenly surrounded by thugs waving guns at her and she panicked. Maybe she thought they were criminals. Maybe she was right. After all, they did rob her of her life.
Perhaps I’m leaping to conclusions before all the facts are clear, or to put it another way, perhaps I’m acting like a trigger-happy DC cop.
