They did not shoot her, but did take her into custody when she wouldn't comply.
There are about 15 news hits on this story when you search Google. What I want to know is:
- Who is this woman?
- Why has no major new feed other than CNN picked up on it?
- Is she Muslim? Why did no one bother to find out?
- Is she Palestinian?
- Is she a leftist, anti-American Bush-hater?
- What delusional thought process made this woman think she could brandish a banned weapon in front of the White House and sharpen it without reprecussions? Especially after the recent terror busts in England?
- Was she trying to get the Secret Service to shoot her? Why?
- Why didn't anyone else think of these questions, or care enough to get the answers to them?
Personally, I believe there is more to this story than just some woman's defianant attitude. Guess our media doesn't really care. What a surprise.... NOT!
