    So she crashed her car, police rush the vehicle, remove the baby, and then fill an unarmed mother full of bullets...Wow...And this is the United States of America? This country is turning into a dictatorship faster than it takes Obama to spend 9 trillion dollars. Its obvious the woman panicked when all the guns were drawn on her. She had her baby in the car...My wife would have done the same thing. She turned around and left the scene as quickly as possible trying to protect her baby. She gets shot, crashes, Then, they take her baby and shoot her many more times just to make sure she was dead.

    It just doesn't make sense...

    Rather than categorically condemning the woman, how about investigating the effects of the anti-pyschotic drugs on her behavior. Further what happened to the envelope with the suspect powder and finally how many drugs, legal or otherwise do you and others at CNN have in their places of abode. Just wondering.
    What you should be concentrating on, in my opinion, is the police state we now live in this country. Shame on CNN.

    Wolf Blitzer you were the last anchor I would watch from the otherwise liberal propaganda machine of CNN until today. I see you are part of the propaganda machine now too. When have you ever been as rude and interruptive with any Democratic Representative as you were with Michelle Bachman? The answer is never! You were trying to put your words in her mouth which might as well have come from Harry Reid himself. I guess CNN is now off my watch list. I used to respect you but I have lost that respect as you have lost any true reporting ideals. Why don't you behave as rude to the President. You kept saying he is willing to negotiate but what the heck is wrong with you. President Obama hasn't negotiated on anything in his entire Presidency and you know that. When are you going to make that point and drive that home to the American public so that they can remember this as well. Good bye Wolf Blitzer! Good by CNN!

    Would asking Mr. Blitzer to read the original St. Francis of Assisi Prayer on air be in violation of Your Terms of Service? Think Congress and our nation would greatly be uplifted by praying during this government shutdown. I have not forgotten God; how about our nation for our children and our grandchildren?

    My son is asking why didn't the Police puncture the tyres instead of shooting in the car?
