    She did not flatten barriers. She bumped into one.One cop crashed ,but she had nothing to do with it, cop was driving too fast for conditions ( barriers ) When they stopped her car they pumped her full of lead.She was NOT ARMED.The feds can kill an unarmed woman in a stopped car ,with a baby in the backseat, but Nadal Hasan is still alive and Obama support terrorists in Syria.Good thing the feds were buying those NO HESITATION targets so they’d be willing to shoot unarmed suspects with kids. Cops suck.I used to wear a badge but in the 1970’s cops were not trained to execute American citizens on the street.Tactical life is a reflection of this perverse bloodthirsty change in police official conduct. Jim PS there is an online video showing cops shooting the woman in a completely stopped vehicle.
