A tale of two shootings

Where were all these civil rights activists who now cry injustice over a shooting in Ferguson when police in DC shot and killed an unarmed Black single mom last year?

Miriam Carey had abandoned her car, and posed no threat to officers as she ran from police near the U.S. Capitol. Police opened fire anyway, striking her five times. 

Not a peep of protest afterwards. Few even noticed when the autopsy was released by her family.

As a matter of fact, shortly after Carey was gunned down, Congress rose to give her killers a standing ovation.

How many who stood to applaud last October's police shooting now dare to heap kneejerk damning criticism on police in Ferguson?
