JUDGE: Can you explain what you were doing in your daughter’s room, with a loaded gun? CARRIE: I had reason to fear for my safety, Your Honor, and Franny’s. JUDGE: Why didn’t you call the police? CARRIE: I used to work for the CIA. I’ve been trained to handle firearms and deal with threatening situations. […] The last time the police came to my house, things didn’t turn out so well. JUDGE: So you’re saying you can handle a dangerous situation better than the police?
CARRIE: [Sekou’s] family was distraught, I had to get over there. LONAS: And that’s when you left Franny with Mr. Quinn? CARRIE: I had to go and there was no one else. Plus, Franny adores Quinn. LONAS: I just got off the phone with the V.A.. I understand that Mr. Quinn suffers from bouts of rage and depression, including violent outburst. CARRIE: He hated it at the V.A.. LONAS: So you moved him into your house?
