It’s been over a week since Capitol police pursued a rogue dental hygienist in a high-speed chase through the streets of DC. The profile that the public was given was one of a delusional, Infiniti-driving single mother who believed that the president was secretly stalking her – that is at least according to a credible source: the victim’s ex-boyfriend.
The entire case profile of Miriam Carey is being based upon the words of her ex-boyfriend and other vague sources rather than by the character accounts from those who knew her best, her family.
“That’s impossible. She works, she holds a job,” said Amy Carey. “She wouldn’t be in D.C. She was just in Connecticut two days ago, I spoke to her…I don’t know what’s happening. I can’t answer any more.”’
Yet it is the ex-boyfriend, who remains unnamed and unvetted, who reports that Miriam Carey told him that the president was secretly ‘communicating with her.’ Was the storyline too rich to pass up to scrutinize the source? The profile was broadcasted by the media echo chamber leaving the tarnished reputation of a woman in its wake.
It is a fact that Miriam Carey sought treatment for post-partum depression. But the notion that she thought that BHO was communicating with because her ex-boyfriend said so is nonsensical. What is more nonsensical is that the media ran with it. Carey’s sisters patently deny that their sister would ever think yet alone broadcast the idea the president was monitoring her.
They denounced the idea that Carey thought that her apartment was bugged by the president. They said in their CNN interview that they had never heard her say anything of that nature.
The New York Sun ran the piece, Astonishing Silence Greets Shooting Death of Miriam Carey by Police at Capitol. In it R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. is troubled by the “astonishing silence surrounding the death Miss Carey. None of the usual complainants against police violence have been heard from—not the Rev. Jesse Jackson nor the Rev. Al Sharpton. Not even the NAACP or the ACLU. Nor for that matter have the hordes of defenders of Trayvon Martin been heard from.”
