Lt. Michael Byrd, the man who killed Ashli Babbitt came forward yesterday, eight months following her fatal shooting.
It happened on January 6, 2021 during the “March to Save America.” Babbitt, caught up in a moment of exuberance, climbed through the window of the Speaker’s Lobby. Capitol Police Officer Lt. Michael Byrd fired the fatal shot through her neck, severing an artery. She died en route to the hospital.
Byrd admitted he couldn’t see what we saw on TV – that the protestors were relatively harmless. But, he said he heard a false report of “shots fired”, giving this excuse for killing an unarmed woman.
After a brief investigation, no charges were filed because of a “lack of evidence” and the belief that it was “justifiable homicide”.
NBC reporter Lester Holt made the assertion that Lt. Byrd “saved lives” by killing Mrs. Babbitt. How? Who did she threaten? What did she do that was dangerous? What about her life?
The fact is: the U.S. Capitol Building belongs to us – not the inhabitants who live like royalty and pissed themselves at the mere thought of violence. In the real world, real people face this every day. Not them.
Lester Holt said Pres. Trump called Michael Byrd “a murderer” and that’s exactly what he is. The same people who thought six months of violent rioting last year was justified say Ashli Babbitt got what she deserved. I say, those who celebrate the death of this former U.S. Air Force veteran should die the same way she did. A bullet through the neck. Then, tell me if you think it’s fair.
