Miriam Carey, 34, was not armed and apparently was suffering from postpartum depression when she sent Washington, DC, police on a car chase yesterday afternoon that resulted in Carey dying in a hail of police bullets.
We will never know why the 34-year-old tried to use her black Infiniti as a battering ram and attempt to drive through barricades into the White House, or why she turned around and flew down Pennsylvania Avenue at 80 miles per hour—all while her one-year-old baby was in the car!
The reason we’ll never know is because when she emerged from her car, unarmed, after hitting a barrier outside of the Capitol building, she was hit by so many bullets that authorities said it was difficult to identify her body. The police fired a hail of bullets at her—all while her one-year-old baby was in the car!
It is true that two officers were injured by Carey’s out-of-control Infiniti, but I’ll never understand in these situations why police officers found it necessary to empty their guns into the unarmed woman’s body after she emerged from her vehicle. Was that really necessary to subdue her, particularly since she was no longer in the Infiniti, which was actually serving as her weapon in this case? It would be akin to opening up on her after she dropped her weapon to the ground.
But as these cases go, we can predict that we will never get any answers to these questions, not when officers were hurt and she was aiming the car at the White House and the Capitol building. Not when Washington was already tense from the spectacularly stupid government shutdown. Not two weeks after Aaron Alexis killed 12 inside the Washington Navy Yard and apparently died himself in a hail of police bullets. Read more…

Today on BlackAmericaWeb, Tonyaa Weathersbee writes about the lives of Harry and Harriette Moore, two heroes of the civil rights struggle. You may not know about the Moore family because they were fighting for our freedom long before it was fashionable to do so. Mr and Mrs. Moore were, according to historians, the only husband-wife team to die in our nation’s quest for racial equality. They were killed in an explosion on Christmas day, 1951.
Harry Moore died instantly from the blast, and Harriette died just nine days later. Both of these heroes deserve to be recognized.
The Moores are believed to be the first martyrs in the struggle for civil rights, but I don’t consider this to be the case. The first martyrs in the struggle were the Africans who died on slave ships during the Middle Passage. However, the fact that the Moore family confronted the white power structure in Florida about the ills of lynching makes it clear that their courage deserves a place in our nation’s history books.

To the first point, I am amazed. It seems as if we as a culture, albeit not monolithic, purport ourselves in a monolithic disposition. Taking the support for our current President alone and his political party, it has been estimated that regardless of affect or effect, African Americans support both at an astonishing 95 percent clip. More astonishing is that the section of our community that used to engage in the politics of what was best for the people as opposed what was best for political accomplishment is no longer in existence. Instead they have returned back to the day prior to Dr. King and are more akin to the black ministers who engaged him to stop his protest and accept the status quo as opposed to stand on the side of right, liberty and justice.
As we prepare for the unveiling of the Washington memorial for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is important that we take a second to contextualize this extraordinary event. Dr. King deserves to be celebrated next to other great heroes of American history, and it is a proud testament to the growth and maturity of our nation that Dr. King has been honored in this way.
