The thing about what happened at the Capitol is that there are so many horrible things that happened, but at the end of the day you still don’t use deadly force unless you are in immediate knowledge that it is being used on you or think it’s about to happen.
I have carried a backpack through an airport a million times and not once did I ever get killed by the police. Now, the chance that there was a weapon in there was pretty low but if you wanted to go by the guidelines the Capitol police apparently use, they would have shot me sixteen times by the time my coffee got handed to me at the donut shop in the airport.
When questioned about why he shot Ashli Babbitt in the capitol Building considering she was unarmed, the Capitol cop said that the fact that she had a backpack played into his thinking even though she was not reaching inside of it.
If that was a good excuse for killing someone, who would not be justified in killing hundreds of people a day? How many people wore backpacks on January 6th?
The cop that shot Babbitt has never been identified. Had he shot someone Black his name, his address, and his phone numbers would be public within 24 hours.
Babbitt was killed almost 10 weeks ago and still nothing. Her family has even been kept in the dark and they have been forced to hire a law firm to go after the alleged killer.
I would be willing to bet they won’t pay her family $27 million but then again she wasn’t high as a kite on drugs.
On January 6th, 2021, Ashli Babbitt, a 14 year Air Force Veteran, was shot and killed by a Capitol Police Officer.
The Capitol Police continue to hide details of her shooting death from the American public.
In the same statement, he directly contradicts himself by saying he could not see the three uniformed officers, only a hallway full of people. He also couldn’t see how far the hallway extended. If he could see Ashli Babbitt was wearing a backpack, he could see the three uniformed officers within the direct vicinity of her.
So, what was in her backpack that put the officer in so much danger?
