This is my third blog concerning this matter, and my latest update.
I’m sure you’re all aware now of the status of this case, right?
Well, don’t feel bad, I wasn’t either.
In fact, I had to go hunting down a lone article from NBC News, of all places, to find out what was currently going on. There were a couple of other articles out there, but they weren’t very well publicized or easy to find.
It seems there aren’t too many “journalists” out there interested in pursuing this story very far.
Compare this to the frenzy of never-ending coverage for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Jacob Blake.
I guess Ashli is the wrong color and of the wrong political persuasion to deserve justice in the eyes of the mainstream media.
That being said…, according to Elisha Fieldstadt and Pete Williams, in an article for NBC News, “Investigators have determined the Capitol Police officer who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt during the U.S. Capitol riot should not be charged with any crimes, a law enforcement source familiar with the investigation told NBC News.”
So, they investigated themselves and determined they weren’t guilty?
“The Wall Street Journal first reported that police investigators have recommended the officer not be charged, although the U.S. Attorney’s Office will make the final decision on the matter.”
Translation: The officer responsibly for killing Ashli Babbitt won’t be charged.
“Babbitt, a 35-year-old Air Force veteran and ardent supporter of former President Donald Trump, was shot during the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.”
“Videos show rioters who made it into the building breaking glass on doors near the House Chamber, which were blocked haphazardly from the inside with chairs in an attempt to prevent the mob from entering. As Babbitt tried to climb through the shattered glass, she was fatally shot by a Capitol Police officer who fired at her once.”
“The officer, who has not been identified by Capitol Police or investigators, ‘used clear appropriate use of force. It’s not even a close call,’ said the officer’s lawyer, Mark E. Schamel.”
Oh, this “use of force” was deemed “appropriate,” huh?
Since when is shooting an UNARMED individual appropriate for a police officer?
In fact, none of the protesters in the capitol that day were armed with any weapons.
But they were Trump supporters, so…
Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane.
How many unarmed protesters and rioters, although many were armed with weapons and explosives, were shot and killed by police over the course of months and months in many of our big cities across the country?
And why does this person get to benefit from anonymity?
‘“The broken doors and a few officers were the only things separating the mob from members of Congress, Schamel stressed. ‘I think it’s his heroism and his restraint that saved lives,’ Schamel told NBC News.”
I’m sorry Mr. Schamel, but your client is no hero, and you are a disgrace.
“The Department of Justice announced last month that the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia would investigate the shooting, and the officer was placed on leave.”
‘“This is routine, standard procedure whenever an officer deploys lethal force. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia is overseeing the investigation,’ a Justice Department spokesperson said at the time.”
This standard procedure doesn’t seem to apply to the officers in Minneapolis, Louisville, or Kenosha, does it?
“A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police Department said the investigation was not complete, and ‘it would be irresponsible to make an investigatory assumption or to jump to any conclusion.’”
It would appear it is already too late for that!
They have already “jumped,” and it is “irresponsible,” to say the very least.
“Babbitt was a decorated security forces controller in the Air Force and served multiple Middle East tours from 2004 to 2016.”
So, she survived “multiple Middle East Tours,” protecting our democracy, and then gets gunned down in her own country, by a Capitol police officer.
“Babbitt was a loyal Fox News watcher, according to thousands of tweets to Fox News hosts, but she also engaged on social media with the conspiracy site InfoWars. In 2020, Babbitt began to tweet with QAnon accounts and use QAnon hashtags.”
Are you saying this information is, somehow, some kind of validation for her murder?
If not, why even go there?
It’s been over two and a half months now, and there still has been no justice for Ashli Babbitt.
Her family does have a lawyer, however, and we’ll just have to wait and see if he is able to make any headway against the powers that be.
Don’t hold your breath.
I’m sure the democrats want to stretch this cover-up out, much like the Jeffrey Epstein matter, hoping it will just fade away.
But some of us will not allow this to just “fade away.”
I’ll continue to keep you posted.
