Sister of slain D.C. driver, retired NYPD sergeant, responds to her sister's death

Sister of slain D.C. driver, retired NYPD sergeant, responds to her sister's death

The sister of 34-year-old dental hygienist Miriam Carey, who was killed yesterday by D.C. police, is a retired NYPD Sergeant who has briefly responded to comments via social media regarding her sister's death. Valarie Carey, described on her website as an entrepreneur, talk show host and "a retired NYC Police Sergeant who was injured on the job," posted on her twitter account Wednesday "I thank all whom showed me and my family concern while we deal with this horrible situation. When the family is ready we will make a statement #THANKYOU #lovemysister."

A hint of what may come was posted in a reply Vararie Carey made to another post about the tragedy.
Sports broadcaster Bruce Hall had tweeted "Watching the film of the chase of Miriam Carey's car around the Capitol, it was a pretty weird scene. How about shooting the tires out?" to which Carey posted an emphatic "THANK YOU!", in all caps.

The attorney for the Carey family, Eric Sanders, posted a message on twitter and facebook which read "Attention Media: I am representing the family of Miriam Carey, the woman involved in the DC shooting incident. From this point, please refrain from trying to contact the family and direct any inquiries to me. We will be giving an official statement in the near future. Thank you."

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier, in her official press release, stated "There were multiple shots fired during this incident and this case is under investigation by the Metropolitan Police Department with assistance from US Secret Service, US Capitol Police, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation."

Tom Davis, a retired NYPD officer who spent 15 years on the force, noted "her working and past mental health history aren't clear as yet, but from everything I've read (as of this morning) she hasn't worked over the past year related to a work injury (she fell on her head). There are also numerous mentions of her being both a very nice person and one who was 'disturbed.' The family rightfully is demanding a full investigation, but what isn't in question is that she drove her car in a way that could have caused the death of innocent people, while at the same time having zero regard for her infant daughter who was in the car. It appears she was given every opportunity to end the matter without additional violence, but she chose not to. Again, much more needs to be learned about her and her final moments, but in my opinion, she alone set this deadly ball in motion with her reckless conduct."

Have you ever had a

tire blow out? What happens?

Hogwash. Police must prove themselves innocent.

If they can't then they deserve no authority.

Free includes debt-free!

I agree with you. I can't

I agree with you. I can't remember the last time I defended police. I think their behavior today is disgusting & out of control on a widespread basis. The cops in this case may or may not have been able to handle this without killing her, but to characterize this as an example of police tyranny is improper. By reading these comments demonizing the cops, now I understand how the opponents of my generally anti-police viewpoint see my arguments.

If people are basing their opinion

of all police officers on police brutality and police harassment videos on youtube, I understand their point of view. They need to keep in mind that not all officers are like the ones in the videos. The good officers are just as appalled, probably more so, at the behavior of these officers as we civilians. The officers in the videos cast a long shadow over the good officers. Videos of the behavior of police officers who perform their duties in a manner consistent with their oath are rarely posted on youtube. I believe this has to change.

"The good officers are just as appalled, probably more so..."

Some yes but how many times do you read stories where good police officers arrest their own or turn their own in for excessive force, misconduct, etc.? I read through police logs all the time and don't remember ever reading one. I am sure there are plenty of good police officers but the ones that choose to keep their mouths shut when witnessing one of their own commit a crime are not "good" after all, actually no better than the one committing the crime. Their silence is the reason why this kind of shit happens all the time as the thugs know there will be no repercussions for their illegal actions. Too many are more concerned about what will happen to their career, family, and lives if they choose to cross the "blue line" by turning in one of their own. Those who choose not to cross that line should be prosecuted the same as those committing the crimes.

My view is a little different...

It's the responsibility of the citizens of the county, town or state to monitor the behavior of the police. Sheriff's are elected, police chiefs are appointed. If the citizens find the actions of the sheriff's deputies unreasonable, they replace the Sheriff. If the actions of the city, town or state police are objectionable, they attend city council meetings, work in the neighborhoods and pressure elected officials to make changes.

Just sitting back hoping the police are going to arrest their own is pretty lazy.

It is a shame

that none of the good officers we see in TV dramas was anywhere to be found in D.C. It is also a shame these fabled Dudley Do-Rights have let these more familiar policemen continue to star in the embarrassing YouTube videos which are being created at nearly the same rate as California porn features. How sad. But nothing can be done about it, I suppose. Bad cops are like mosquitoes who just spring up out of stagnant pools of water. Nobody is responsible. Everyone just needs to accept that there are bad cops and cope as best we can.

[F]orce can only settle questions of power, not of right. - Clyde N. Wilson

The behavior of police depicted in TV dramas

is rarely based in reality. You might be happy to learn that the number of embarrassing videos on youtube is decreasing.

So what was the purpose

Of the initial high speed chase ? It was the initial over reaction the secret service, and then the poor performance, and over reaction of the Capitol cops that caused this death, and could have caused many more. Then when she originally stopped, they failed to box in the car properly or disable the car. They could have easily shot an innocent bystander with there risky attempt to shot the driver.

I swear, if it had been a rabid dog instead of a confused human that was shot and killed, most people would have felt more sympathy, and been more critical of the police. I am starting to see the value of the Yellowstone volcano.

My guess, and this is only a guess,

is she was driving erratically the first time an officer pulled her over. She decided to handle the first stop the way she handled the second stop.

Welcome to the New World Order

Where any infraction, no matter how trivial, will be met with deadly force. Perhaps cars should be taken away from any woman suffering from post partum depression for life. Signs should be posted at every entrance to DC notifying all who enter that you are at the mercy of cops who are on a big game hunt.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

There Should be a law

That Police officers cannot use deadly force unless they are themselves in danger of being shot or killed. Fleeing suspects do not pose any danger to the police. There used to be common law in the old days to never shoot someone in the back.

Do your best have no expectations

"It's coming right for us!"


A signature used to be here!

Having worked in a Sheriff's Dpt.

I can tell you they are NOT supposed to be using their weapons, unless someone is armed, but I can also tell you that they are supported totally when it comes to the Inquests. There will be an Inquest, and the charge will be Homicide, but the police almost always are protected under the umbrella of Law Enforcement, rightly or wrongly. The only thing that scares me is that her sister is WAITING to say anything---what---to give the FBI more time to pressure her? Oh, no!

Now, some officers are more trigger-happy than others! That's the bad news. The good news is the Detectives and Officers I knew were, for the most part, good men. Essentially, it is a tops-down mindset, and these officers are "trained" to do what they do on command. This mindset starts at the White House with a "police state" mentality and is pushed all the way down to our local community levels.

It is cruel and unjust, the world we now live in. As we all know here, our beloved US Constitution has been completely eviscerated. Noone seems to be able to fight the corruption in D.C. NOONE. I don't know what to do either. "Educating" and "informing" our fellow citizens desperately as we do seems to be the only way to pave a massive awakening.

I do believe that SOMEDAY the elites will make a MAJOR MISTAKE, have a MAJOR MISTEP that will reveal exactly who these people are and how evil they all are.

Signs we are seeing for mass awakenings:

Most of the public hates BOTH PARTIES now. This is progress, as the R/Left paradign is losing its influence.

Most of the public hates these invasions & wars. This is progress, too, as many now can see these are futile. And, when other countries like Russia & China step in, you KNOW the USA/English elites are losing their grip on power.

These are good things. Still, we need more. We should COMPLAIN LOUD about this Single Mother who was mercilously killed. Yes, they could have shot her tires out, and since she was UNARMED, how hard would it have been for the Officers to restrain her?!! This is SO AWFUL even I can't bear to think about this poor girl.

Yet another case in which the victim had every

opportunity to subject themselves to the tyranny of the police and chose not to - and as such - their death is more than warranted.

When are you people going to get it - if you just friggin acted like the serfs you are - none of this would be happening.

If she had just stopped she would now be comfortably sitting in a jail cell, relieved from just have been sexually assaulted and probed and happily waiting to get medical attention for the serious(oh -but not life threatening) injuries she sustained in her arrest. Meanwhile she would be able to take comfort in knowing her daughter will not be handed over to a relative, but rather turned into a toy(a mean ward) of the state and placed in a foster home with people who have a lengthy report sheet of child abuse.

She would then most likely be sent to a mental institution that would drug her out of her mind(for her protection of course) - where she would probably be able to be pleasured by strangers again.

You got that right Hal. :'(

It's amazing that retired

It's amazing that retired policeman Davis (only after 15 years?) just conducted the woman's trial and justified her execution. So the police policy seems to be "Kill first, try later". This way you can spin whatever you want as her story.
