The Bed-Stuy family of the Connecticut woman who locked down Capitol Hill after leading police on a high-speed chase in the nation's capital said Monday that they still don't have answers from Washington D.C. police.
Valerie Carey and Amy Carey-Jones, sisters of Miriam Carey, went on the Today Show Monday, according to the New York Post to defend their sister and question the use of deadly force in the incident.
Already, police in Washington have said an investigation has revealed that Miriam Carey was suffering from delusional episodes.
After host Matt Lauer asked the family about Miriam's supposed mistrust of President Barack Obama, Amy Carey-Jones came to her defense.
"Those things don't sound correct, which is why we're speaking out for her. That's not the Miriam that we knew," Amy said. "She didn't have any disputes with any political agendas she never talked badly about President Obama, she wasn't walking around delusional."
According to published reports, Miriam Carey was alleged to have an obsession with Obama before the incident in Washington, in which she led police on a high-speed chase down Pennsylvania Avenue before being shot and killed by law enforcement officers.
What I do see is that perhaps, maybe my sister was afraid, being surrounded by officers with their guns drawn," Valerie Carey said "If in fact she wasn't supposed to be in a restricted area, how was she allowed to drive in that area?"
