If a white cop kills an unarmed black man, the country explodes.
Mind you, most of that is the responsibility of our garbage media, which, as Donald Trump says, are the enemies of the people.
But still, when it happens, suddenly we’re the most racist, awful country on the planet and the only thing that fixes it, for a few days anyway, is looting Foot Lockers, Walmarts, and CVS stores while beating cops and burning down buildings.
However, when the ‘right’ person is killed by a cop, say, a Trump supporter who is rioting, then it’s no problem. In fact, those dirty Trump supporters deserve it.
Ashli Babbitt deserved it, don’t you see.
The unarmed Air Force vet was blown away by a Capitol Police officer who still remains anonymous, on the job, and in no danger of being held accountable for his/her actions.
That’s because Biden’s Justice Department has decided it’s okay to kill unarmed Trump supporters.
The Babbitt family is outraged, as is their lawyer.
'The shooting of Ashli Babbitt on January 6, 2021 by an unidentified U.S. Capitol Police Officer was an unjustified use of deadly force which violated her constitutional rights,' said attorney Terrell N. Roberts, III, of Roberts & Woods in Riverdale, Md., in a statement Thursday.
'It is clear from video footage that Ashli did not pose a danger to the officer, or any other person, when she was shot. Ashli was unarmed. She did not assault anyone. She did not threaten to harm anyone. There was no excuse for taking her life,' he added.
Roberts continued, noting that it's 'a universal law enforcement standard' that police are not supposed to use any additional force than is required to subdue a suspect or 'accomplish a lawful purpose.” He further noted that Babbitt was small in stature at 5? 2? tall and 110 pounds and speculating that she could have been arrested 'by a single officer with a set of handcuffs.'
'At the time of the shooting, there were over a half-dozen police officers in close proximity to the Speaker's door where Ashli was standing. Some of those officers had just allowed protesters access to the door by stepping aside,' the attorney added.
'Other officers, dressed in full tactical gear, stood among the protesters just a few feet behind the door. Still, others stood casually at the opposite end of the Speaker's Lobby, unconcerned with the activities of Ashli and the protesters around her. All of these officers were in a position to have aided in the apprehension of Ashli if it was necessary. Given her background as a 14-year veteran of the Air Force, it is likely that Ashli would have complied with simple verbal commands, thereby making the use of any force unnecessary,' he added.
'Witnesses confirm that the officer did not give Ashli a single verbal warning prior to firing. In fact, Ashli was not even aware that the officer was present, as he was located in the doorway of a room off to the side of her field of vision,' Roberts wrote.
'To date, the officer who shot Ashli has not been identified. Neither the Capitol Police nor any other governmental authority has given an account of the facts surrounding the shooting,' he said.
'There has been no official explanation or justification for the use of lethal force in this matter. This lack of transparency impedes the public scrutiny which is necessary to hold government officials accountable in a free society. It also interferes with the ability of Ashli's family to obtain justice for their loss,' he stated, pledging that his law firm will continue its investigation of the incident and pledging 'appropriate legal action' when the investigation is finished.
'We call upon the Capitol Police as well as the United States Congress to make public the facts and circumstances of Ashli's shooting,' Roberts said.
If we had a real media, and not a group of left-wing propagandists, we would know who the cop was and he would likely have been charged by now.
