Capitol Punishment: Unarmed mom with health issues gunned down by Capitol Police

When it emerged that the woman shot dead by police on Capitol Hill was a depressed single mother, questions surfaced as to why police fired a stream of bullets at an unarmed driver who had an eighteen month old baby in the back of her car. New details surrounding the death of Miriam Carey are swiftly changing the story's turn of events: originally, one in which she was accused of being armed and confronted by police heroics during a government shutdown, into one about over-zealous police gunning down an emotionally-troubled woman in front of her child. The 34-year old dental hygienist from Connecticut had been hospitalized after suffering previous bouts of depression, which began after the birth of 18-month old Erica. "She had postpartum depression after having the baby," the victim's mother, Idella Carey, told ABC News. "A few months later, she got sick. She was depressed...she was hospitalized." Carey [Idella] was under the impression that her daughter was taking the baby to a doctor's appointment in Conneticut. Her pregnancy with Erica had been unplanned, according to her former boss, Dr. Barry Weiss, who spoke to NBC Connecticut. Carey [Miriam] had seemed increasingly stressed after discovering the news, and around January 2012, she suffered a fall down a staircase bad enough to have to take two to three weeks off work. She was fired around a year ago, but said there was "nothing unusual about her leaving our office." http:/ ctualidad.rt.com/
