In Denial

Sometimes we have to accept the truth no matter how unbelievable it may be. I'll be the first to admitt that I can be somewhat of a conspiracy theorist. But I am also a realist, and some things are just what they are. Some acts just by virtue of their very nature are completely insane. 

A sister of the Connecticut woman shot to death by police in Washington after trying to ram her car through a White House barrier says there were no indications that her sister was unstable.

Miriam Carey’s sister Amy Car Jones said Friday that her sister “seemed OK” the last time they spoke more than a week ago.

A week is more than enough time for anyone to lose touch with reality. But often times it is difficult to accept the truth about those that we love.

A second sister, Valarie Carey, said police should not have used deadly force.

Valarie Carey is a retired New York City police officer. She said there was “no need for a gun to be used.”

In the event that a car is used in the commission of a violent crime, what other choice do the Police have if not deadly physical force? Make no mistake about it, anyone who poses a threat to what is probably the most heavily guarded building in America is going to get "taken out."

The sisters spoke late Friday outside Valarie Carey’s home in Brooklyn. They say Miriam Carey had been suffering from postpartum depression since the birth of her 1-year-old daughter.

Police say they’re confident Carey’s actions Thursday weren’t an accident.
