The Carey Family Reacts to the Autopsy Report

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW YORK, April 4, 2014 – Yesterday, after six months of “utter” silence by government officials, the Carey Family received the final Autopsy Report for their beloved Miriam Iris Carey. After a careful analysis, the report supports their original hypothesis the shooting of their beloved Miriam was “NOT JUSTIFIED.”

Important Facts from the Report

• Miriam was in “good health”
• Miriam was not under the influence of alcohol or other drugs
• Miriam died from multiple gunshot wounds
• Miriam was shot from the back to the front, meaning all shots entering her body were fired while her back was turned, the locations indicate she was moving away from the officers; and
• Miriam sustained one shot to the back of her head

“The authorities knew since October 10, 2013, despite popular misinformation, Miriam had no alcohol or other drugs in her system debunking mental illness theory and they also knew since December 5, 2013, Miriam was shot multiple times about her body including her head and back,” says Eric Sanders.

With these latest government revelations, the Carey Family is understandably upset.

Important Facts About Use of Force Federal Agencies

• Metropolitan Police General Order No.: RAR 901.07 Section IV (A)(2) No member of the Metropolitan Police Department shall discharge his/her firearm under the following circumstances… “At or from a moving vehicle unless deadly force is being used against the officer or another person. For purposes of this order, a moving vehicle is not considered deadly force. Members shall, as a rule, avoid tactics that could place them in a position where is vehicle could be used against them. (CALEA 1.3.4)”

“It stands to reason using simple logic, if the Metropolitan Police prohibits shooting at moving vehicles, the United States Secret Service – Uniformed Division and United States Capitol Police follows the CALEA standard as well, says Sanders.

CALEA is the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. Members organizations includes the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP); National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE); National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA); and the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF).

“We continue to call for the criminal prosecution of all employees involved from the United States Secret Service – Uniform Division and United States Capitol Police, for the United States Department of Justice to prosecute all employees involved for violating the civil rights of our beloved Miriam and for the immediate termination of all employees involved,” says Valarie Carey spokesperson for the Carey Family.

Valarie Carey, who is representing the interests of the Carey Family, filed a wrongful death claim on January 30, 2014, against the United States of America, the United States Secret Service – Uniformed Division and the United States Capitol Police seeking $75 million dollars on behalf of The Estate of Miriam Iris Carey, Mother Idella Carey and minor child EF to compensate them for their great loss of a daughter, mother, friend and confidant.

“While the criminal probe is pending, the United States Congress using its legislative powers must investigate Miriam’s death. Miriam’s death is symbolic of the growing problem of police using excessive force against the citizenry throughout our nation. With respect to Miriam’s death, it is in the public’s interest to ensure our government acted responsibly not only from a criminal or a civil perspective but from an internal agency perspective. It is also in the public’s interest avoid a similar tragedy in the future,” says Sanders.

  1. Thank you for making this information available and condolences to the family for their tragic and senseless loss that should have been avoided.
    May the good lord be with you in your grief . I lost my mother to Alzhiemers and Government abuses of discretion I Know how it feels.

  3. People need to hold a conference with Congress and make them know THIS IS WHAT YOU CHEERED FOR, FOOLS. Standing ovation for shooting an unarmed mother in the BACK…

  5. This gross injustice amounts to nothing less than state-sponsored domestic terrorism, and tragically this type of cop-on-citizen violence has become a national epidemic.

    Even more horrifying is that 1. the lack of appropriate disciplinary action taken by the “courts of law” and “law enforcement” against the alleged uniformed perpetrators (which would be the issuance of formal charges and imprisonment pending a trial… that which a regular citizen would face in the same circumstances) and 2. the complete absence of attention paid to this wide-spread trend of unwarranted violence against citizens by “law enforcement” aggressors as exhibited by our so-called “leaders” in the “federal government” both reveal government complicity in this crime and only serve to further encourage this sort of abuse of citizens by the “authorities”.

    My heart goes out to this poor woman’s family, and rest her soul… but this is only the beginning of a long and difficult–but entirely necessary–fight for the preservation of human dignity and of our supposed rights as “free” citizens (which we are not, sadly) in this nation.

  7. Just so you know who’s commenting about this, I’m a white, male, conservative (don’t say Republican), 2nd Amendment supporter, and mostly a supporter of law enforcement. I say mostly because of horror stories just such as this one. Not that the number of people outraged by this will help the case, but I pray that there is sufficient damage done to the budget of the law enforcement agencies responsible for the murder of this woman who had so much life, love, parenting, and family ahead of her. This was nothing short of calculated murder of someone who didn’t deserve to be shot at and if it had been under other circumstances (not in DC) would have been justified to shoot back at her attackers. Looking at what she did, what was the reason for all that overreaction in the first place? Please take care of her family and go for punitive in an extreme amount, these people need to get stung so badly that there will be a purge of the scum that’s been hired to enforce. Remember, there was a court ruling that says that police have no obligation to protect you, only themselves.

    1. Thanks for your support. Remember TN v. Garner, that is standard to analyze police use of force. The most these police officers had was a simple car stop. Nothing else.

  9. All across the nation, the Federal government is using borrowed money, creating further budget unpayable debt, to hire more and more enforcers who are trained to Deliberately violate the constitution. All harrassment of citizens by anti-Constitutional extremists hire by the Federal government is, strictly speaking, terrorism. The Carey murder is a particularly notable instance of what is becoming clear is a budding “reign of terror” against the people of the 50 States that is organized by a non-State, outside its Constitutional authority.
