"Federal prosecutors will not charge a police officer who shot and killed a woman as she climbed through the broken part of a door during the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Authorities had considered for months whether criminal charges were appropriate for the Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt -- The Justice Department’s decision, though expected, officially closes out the investigation.

Prosecutors said they had reviewed video of the shooting, along with statements from the officer involved and other officers and witnesses, examined physical evidence from the scene and reviewed the autopsy results. “Based on that investigation, officials determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution,” the department said in a statement."


This sets a very dangerous precedent....It basically gives officers a blank check to gun down people, unarmed people, good people.....and the officer face no consequences for his or her actions...Because of this decision, cops can essentially gun you down just because you didn't obey an order they gave -- they can gun you down then claim they feared for their safety while dehumanizing you as some violent person or a member of some angry mob... even tho that person is unarmed and was posing no threat.

Now to be fair, it's perfectly OK for certain types of unarmed people to be gunned down for not obeying cops or maybe using inappropriate language towards cops that could cause them to fear for their safety; but it's different when you are actually fighting against a tyrannical government who stole an election and your only recourse is to storm the Capitol to voice your grievances, cosplay in Neo-Nazi and Neo-Confederate apparel, joke about executing the VP and perhaps scare congress members into overturning the election for you and stuff...

No...I am going to advocate for and support others who push for better policing policies that results in net benefits for EVERYONE -- not just your desired demographic...

But I am a progressive and not some right wing reactionary cuck like you...so.....yea...

Babbit was unarmed and murdered in cold blood while protesting against her government. Celebrate all you want, but you will reap what you sow.
Yea, most of us never had any previous examples of people being murdered for protest.....or even something as simple and registering people to vote.......

The fact that you endorsed Babbitt's execution makes you just as bad.

Spare me from your stupid attempt at satire. Viola Liuzzo's murder has nothing to do with Babbit. Babbit was executed in cold blood by her government in a building owned by taxpayers. I don't condone what she did but attempting to climb through a window does not warrant the death penalty.

Ashli was attempting to breach a secure perimeter protecting our Congressmen. Once that perimeter was breached, there would be no way to protect members of Congress who were being threatened by an angry mob.

Ashli‘s relatives should sue the hell out of Donald J Trump
He is the one who filled her with lies, he is the one who filled her with rage, he is the one who called her to Washington and sent her to the Capitol.

I think it's the right decision. The officer was responding to a call, and things happen. Very similar to what we saw recently in Daunte Wright's case. Sadly, politics got involved and mob rule took place and the officer has been charged.

Odd...I could have sworn the members of Congress were protected, after the perimeter was breached. Moreover, wasn't she shot in the lobby?

What threat did she pose to anyone? She presented a physical threat to our Congressmen ? A verbal one? She was unarmed.

You would be wrong.

There were members of Congress on the other side of that door Ashli was trying to breach. The door led to Congressional Chambers where some members were still hiding

She was a member of a mob that was threatening members of Congress and Mike Pence. She reached the final perimeter of defense and tried to crawl through a broken window.
Cost her life.

Blame Trumps lies

I am pretty sure all the members left the chamber.

Well. . now that the precedent has been set, hopefully this means, whatever the verdict from the Floyd trial, if folks riot and loot, it will give more leway for law enforcement to feel free to shoot folks for being disorderly. . . and thus, settle the mob down quicker?

:dunno:
