    Weiss said that he fired her in August 2012 after patients complained that she was too rough.

    Idella Carey said her daughter had "no history of violence" and she did not know why she was in Washington, D.C. She said she believed Carey was taking the little girl to a doctor's appointment today in Connecticut.

    Dr. Steven Oken, her boss of eight years, described Carey as a "non-political person" who was "always happy."

    DH, retired Fed Employee works for a contractor. If the contractor is involved in an essential project he/she works. If not, all people working for the contract are laid off.

    Paid or unpaid, I am glad that there were people here to deal with the situation.

    She obviously wasn't in Connecticut, even though her mother and sister believed she was.

    MSNBC reporting her post-partum depression had become so severe she thought Obama was stalking her.

    If so, it explains why she was trying to get into the WH.

    The barrier she hit was at the WH. It was a barrier rolled in front of her car when she kept trying to enter a restricted area. At this time, she also struck a secret service agent who was thrown onto the hood of her car and fell off as she turned her car around. AFAIK, video of this incident hasn't been released to the public yet.

    The video at the link is of her encounter with LE in front of the Capitol, after she had left the WH and drove down Pennsylvania Ave. It's about a mile away from the WH.

    I would think if you think someone is stalking, you don't go to them. Something just seems off here.

    How would the police know it was a woman panicking versus a terrorist that had a bomb in the car and was trying to make it to a restricted zone, which they say she attempted two different restricted zones from what was said on CNN. Police don't have the psychic abilities to know. If you freak out and turn your car into a weapon and have no regard for hitting human beings then what happens to you after is only your own fault.

    They could not know.

    That is what I was trying to convey.

    The police did their jobs.

    Sadly, they did have to shoot her. An obvious thing, I think.

    Fund mental health programs. Help our people.

    I would wonder if she had any type of frontal lobe injury in the fall.

    Mom in D.C. Chase Was Diagnosed With Psychosis

    Miriam Carey, 34, had been diagnosed with psychosis and wasn't always fully aware of where she was, according to family members

    "We are seeing serious degradation in her mental health, certainly within the last 10 months, since December, ups and downs," said a federal official, who had been briefed about the investigation but was not authorized to discuss it publicly and spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity. "Our working theory is her mental health was a significant driver in her unexpected presence in D.C. yesterday."

    The woman had made delusional "expressions about the president in the past" and believed President Barack Obama was communicating to her, the official said.

    "Those communications were, of course, in her head," the official said, adding that concerns about her mental health were reported in the last year to Stamford police.

    I just can't seem to understand why a woman with mental problems,would drive that far apparently confused just to come up to the White House.If she wanted suicide by cops she could have done something crazy in CT.I just think that's a long way to
    drive for a women that is delusional by herself with a child in the car.If she had weapons in the car I could understand.What was she hoping to accomplish? I feel there is more,and we will never know,since she is gone.

    Shooting out tires does not stop a car. It may slow it but it's dangerous to go shooting all over the place. When they shoot, they shoot to kill. Until then, they don't shoot at all. When it comes to the point that they need to pull a gun, it's no longer about trying to preserve the life of the subject.

    Yeah, it's called mental illness. That's what's off.

    People who are mentally ill do not act in ways that are logical. Because they are mentally ill. But they are capable of inmmense planning and that would include driving.

    There's no conspiracy here. She was crazy, endangered lives and the police eventually has to take all measures to stop her, in order to save other lives.
