"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": Did Miriam Carey have to die? Friends, law enforcement, and legal experts offer reaction

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • Family friends and law enforcement professionals offer reaction to DC death

A day after a dramatic Washington D.C. car chase left one woman dead and several questions unanswered, on Friday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited a pair of men, each with professional and personal insight, to offer their reactions.

In addition to being family friends of the late Miriam Carey, Dennis Jones and Darrin Green also share ties to the Law Enforcement Alliance, allowing them to comment on the fatal incident from an entirely unique perspective.

"There's always an opportunity to look things over and determine that there could possibly be another way that it could have been done," said Jones. "As law enforcement, you're trained for so many different outcomes. You don't necessarily...every outcome has to end in a death of someone."

The knowledge that Carey suffered from mental illness only serves to complicate this issue.

"The training that the officers undergo, we call it muscle memory. When you train hard and you train properly you become something that you do instantaneously. And again, Monday morning quarterbacking the situation now is a little late, but clearly the methods that were used at that point in time are clearly questionable," Green told Piers Morgan. "If the officers panicked, and under the extreme stress – panic – panic does not allow you for rational thinking because you're at such a stress level...panic cannot be an option that that can be a reason or excuse as to why you did not perform properly."

  • A trio of guests offer an assessment of police killing Miriam Carey

On the heels of a wild scene in the nation's capital that forced government staffers to "shelter in place," on Friday, Piers Morgan asked a trio of guests to react to the authorities fatally shooting a woman now know to have been Miriam Carey.

"You're dealing with a woman that was at the White House, clipped an officer, and then goes off. We don't know if this is a distraction for a terrorist attack. We don't know if she has a bomb in her car. We don't know if she's trying to distract from another attack and we know that this is in the most sensitive area around government," detailed Conservative radio host Ben Ferguson. "I don't think they had any other choice because you got to assume by the White House, by the Capitol, in this situation, that this could be a much, much, much bigger threat than it ended up being."

Attorney Danny Cevallos meanwhile, offered his reaction from a legal perspective:

"There has to be some reasonable belief of actual physical harm, probable cause in fact," he said as part of a live interview. "The thing that concerns me is obviously once flight is over, is someone still a fleeing felon and is deadly force still authorized? You know, you hear a lot of discussion about could have been a bomb, could have been a bomb. That's not the way...we cannot approach all of law enforcement with the idea that everybody could have a bomb."

HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill ultimately felt it's far too early to draw any concrete conclusions:

"There are moments where the police reasonably could have thought their lives were in danger. If at the moment you no longer think your life is danger, you don't get a chance to shoot," detailed the Columbia professor. "What I say is we need to investigate this, we need to dig further. I'm not willing to give the police the benefit of the doubt without investigation but I'm also not willing to say the police did anything wrong just yet."

    When my recently-turned-voting-age children's college nest egg collapses on October 17th because of the republican party's hostage strategy over the Affordable Care Act/Debt Ceiling issue, my children will NEVER vote republican. That should get their attention.
