‘Murdered’ mom cover-up implodes as DC report released

(Editor’s note: This is Part 1 of an investigative series seeking the facts in the shooting of unarmed, suburban mother Miriam Carey by federal officers near the Capitol on Oct. 3, 2013, based on WND’s acquisition of the police report, never before released to the public, via a Freedom of Information Act request.)

WASHINGTON – The federal officer who fired what may have been the shot that killed unarmed, suburban mother Miriam Carey in the nation’s capital claimed he pulled the trigger because he feared for his life – even though she was driving away from him when he shot at her from the back.

New material obtained exclusively by WND also shows what Carey family attorney Eric Sanders calls “smoking-gun” evidence that there was no real investigation, only a cover-up.

In an exhaustive quest to learn the truth about why federal officers shot and killed Carey on Oct. 3, 2013, after she apparently did nothing more than mistakenly drive into a White House guard post and then immediately tried to leave, WND filed a Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA, request to obtain the final report, which was, inexplicably, never released to the public.

That request was denied by the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department, or MPD, which was tasked with investigating the incident and filing a report explaining why two uniformed U.S. Secret Service officers and two U.S. Capitol Police officers fired their guns at Carey. The report was reviewed by the U.S. attorney’s office for the District of Columbia, a branch of the Justice Department.

But months after the FOIA request was denied, the Washington, D.C., mayor’s office approved an appeal of that decision, and WND has since reviewed the material contained in the report, which includes numerous revelations that appear to contradict authorities’ official version of how Carey ended up dead.

What the material does not show may be as revealing as what it does disclose.

It doesn’t explain why officers used deadly force, whether officers followed the policy of their agencies or what threat Carey allegedly posed.

The documents show 72 witnesses were interviewed, but only 34 statements were provided in the material given to WND.

Some of those statements were apparently redacted because there were no accompanying transcripts. Some merely state that the interview was recorded on video.

Additionally, none of the actual transcripts of interviews in the witnesses’ own words were provided, just paraphrased versions in what Sanders, a former New York City police officer, described as “cop talk.”

The surveillance and dash cam videos were not provided.

Sanders told WND there is little evidence the police actually conducted a real investigation, or even compiled a final report at all.

I have to wonder whether Obama and Holder will go to any lengths whatsoever to ensure that our central government headquartered in D.C. continues to appear as America’s salvation and any hope for the future. Only a tight, statist government can work for the U.S. according to these radical Alinsky and Marx followers. Any observed flaws in that central-state-knows-best
philosophy cannot be allowed to stand. Even police error and overreach can be forgiven if it occurs within the centralized area of federal control (D.C.), although it would be relentlessly attacked in any other U.S. jurisdiction. These statists want to establish federal control over
local law enforcement, as any of us can observe over the last few years of U.S. media coverage and Democrat Party talking points. So howling over police shootings in the various states supports their cause, while the shootings within the very heart of our central
federal government counteracts their cause.
