That question could be applied to many, supposed, “on-going investigations.”
The “investigation” I am specifically referring to here is the “investigation” of the UNARMED, 14-year Air Force veteran who was gunned down in cold blood by the Capitol police force.
Please refer to my initial blog from January 12, 2021, on this subject.
It’s been three weeks now and I haven’t heard another word about it.
Well, not really.
Who was responsible for the shooting?
Have they been suspended?
Have they been fired?
How come we don’t know anything about the killer?
How many other Capitol police officers were there and involved in the shooting?
In the cases of other cops shooting unarmed individuals, or killing/harming them in some other manner (George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Jacob Blake), we knew the identities of all of the cops involved the next day.
So, what’s up in this case?
I guess the Capitol police and the DC Police get special treatment for some reason.
Maybe it’s because they protect our elite and privileged politicians?
They’re not like the police who are supposed to protect all of us everyday citizen peons out here.
Just to recap what happened, in case your memory is beginning to fade:
According to Jaclyn Peiser and Justin Jouvenal for The Washington Post, “When a group of pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol and smashed windows on Wednesday, a woman jumped onto a pane and started through.”
“Seconds later, a gunshot rang out and the woman, who had a Trump flag tied around her waist, tipped back and fell onto the marble floor as blood spilled from her shoulder.”
‘“They shot a girl!’ someone yelled as the crowd ran out of the southeast entrance.”
“She died later that day, police said.”
“The woman was 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt, a California native and Air Force veteran, her former husband told The Washington Post.”
“Police have not yet confirmed Babbitt’s identity or confirmed details about how she was shot. The woman was shot by U.S. Capitol Police, D.C. Police Chief Robert J. Contee III told reporters.”
“Babbitt, a native of San Diego, served in Afghanistan and Iraq in the Air Force before other deployments with the National Guard to Kuwait and Qatar, ex-husband Timothy McEntee told The Post.”
So, when do the protests for Ashli start?
Are players in the upcoming Super Bowl going to have her name on the back of their helmets?
I want some answers…, and I’m sure many of the 74 million people who voted for President Trump do as well.
I’ll keep you posted.
