shooting in Washington

A lockdown of the U.S. Capitol was lifted after gunshots were fired near the White House in Washington, D.C. today.

Shooting erupted following a car chase that began with a car ramming a barricade near the White House on Thursday, USA Today reports.

The female driver led Capitol police on a brief car chase that ended with an exchange of gunfire. One officer was reported injured in a related car accident.

MSNBC and CNN report that the driver was shot after getting out of the vehicle near the Hart Senate Office building.

"There are reports of injuries," said Terrance Gainer, the Senate's Sergeant at Arms. CNN quoted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as saying there has been "one injury."

NBC and CNN report that a child in the car was not injured.

The shooting in the nation's Capitol came 2 weeks after a man went on a shooting rampage at a Washington Navy yard. 13 people were killed including the gunman.

Obama and Congress are deadlocked in day 3 of the government shutdown. 800,000 non-essential government workers are on temporary furlough.

      Almost $40 for the value sized one at Sam's, the regular sized one is $25 and the small can is $16. :mad:

      Now for those who cannot pay for that out of pocket, wtf is their baby supposed to eat? All this over some f'ing healthcare reform? And their greasy azzes go home every NIGHT to a plate of food and a full bank account. They aren't wanting for anything.

      :pray: for those affected.

      If you get Medicaid you automatically get WIC or certain health conditions. When I first took custody of my then cousin I got it just because she was on Medicaid. I didn't qualify for foodstamps, lawd knows I had planned all kinds of crab boils in my head. These one chick had some rare disease and she got it but didn't financially qualify for foodstamps either.

      I don't think anyone was killed. jUst one 5-0 who prob rolled his ankle while running... or was running and ran into a parked car since he was in a related car accident.

    • Brownskin Cutie (Carrington’s E-boo)

      And this is just the beginnning of it, I hope they end this shutdown soon. But I read somewhere that one of the Senators was complining about how much he makes a yr and can't live off it. I think they should do a wife swap with Boomsheka and a congressman wife. They'll change their minds about a Shutdown then. Hmph.

      Hey Leo! :hi:

      WIC is for the at risk..or you can qualify thru income. So she qualified but you didnt. If she had been your child from the start she wouldnt have gotten medicaid, ergo no WIC..unless you were at risk, health or aid wise.

      The second chick still wouldnt ram the white house gates, IMO because she still has some "money" to buy what WIC was providing, hence not qualifying for food stamps. :shrug:

      ____________________

      lets say the check is for 50.32 cuz you know its always some random ass amount. the store keeps the milk, you endorse the check & they give you the cash value. they still get to sell the milk and turn the check into the state.

      evrybody wins and you dont have to lug all that stupid ass cow snot back to the house!

      I knew this; just never heard it done with WIC. The Feds came thru here :nono: one or two yrs ago so you cant get a store to do that.. unless its the Arabs. :tea:

      ******************
      yeah child I know, so I was thankful for the WIC cause even though she was 3 milk and cheese high, didn't have to deal with the formula. Plus since she was a ward of the state she automatically keeps medicaid until she's 18. I thought medicaid was just the clinic so I carried her on my BCBS policy until I found out otherwise. Now she has a Medicaid HMO that gives her free rx and $0 copays except for some specialites and then it's only $2. I'm paying for group coverage and going to the same doctors she goes too. People believe that Medicaid offers substandard care and facilities but that's not true. All them hospitals be participating in them plans.

    • AlluringlySweet

      So sad that the same stereotypes that the "conservative" whites have about this dead mother are the same shared about her here...wic vouchers...really? From the looks of her car, she didn't ram her car. Later reports state the cop rammed his car into the barricade trying to get into the chase. The reports were that the woman was unarmed. This is sad. That poor child will be traumatized for a while.
