Miriam Iris Carey

Third Annual Silent Protest for the Shooting Death of Miriam Carey

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

NEW YORK, September 22, 2016 – About three  years ago on October 3, 2013 Miriam Iris Carey was shot and killed by unknown members of the United States Capitol Police and United States Secret Service – Uniformed Division. Miriam was a law-abiding citizen, an unarmed woman traveling with her 13 month baby in the car. For facts unknown to this day, Miriam was inexplicably shot five (5) times from back to front, including once to the left side of her head. Thus far, there has not been ‘FULL DISCLOSURE’ of the investigation performed under the auspices of the United States Attorney General Eric H. Holder and now Loretta Lynch’s office. Despite the fact that Miriam was unarmed and did not commit any crime in the District of Columbia, the United States Attorney General’s Office felt there was not enough evidence to prove the officers WILLFULLY killed Miriam. Since that fateful day, our preliminary investigation indicates members of the United States Secret Service – Uniform Division ‘Willfully’ violated numerous internal policies causing the ‘avoidable’ death of Miriam Iris Carey.

Prior to this gathering, the Carey Family has filed multiple wrongful death claims against the United States Capitol Police and United States Secret Service – Uniformed Division seeking $350 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.

On Monday, October 3, 2016, the Carey family, friend and interested citizens will be holding a silent protest with a butterfly release at the President James Garfield Memorial, United States Capitol in the circle at First Street, S.W. and Maryland Avenue Washington, D.C.

The Miriam Iris Carey Caravan to the District of Columbia will leave 6:45 AM SHARP from Boys and Girls High School 1700 Fulton Street Brooklyn, N.Y. 11213.

Upon arrival in the District of Columbia, the Silent Protest begins at 2 PM SHARP

At 2:15 PM we will call the name of Miriam five (5) times. For each bullet wound Miriam endured, while calling her name, we will release a butterfly.

This will be a PEACEFUL and SILENT gathering. Our presence alone will speak VOLUMES!

Let your PRESENCE be known and STAND with the Carey family.
