We all guessed it was coming, but the decision is still shocking. No action at all will be taken against the Capitol Hill cop who murdered peaceful protester Ashli Babbitt in cold blood.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia has issued a press release explaining their decision to not prosecute the officer who shot and killed the unarmed veteran on January 6, 2021.
The statement is full of lies. Contrary to what it asserts, the DOJ has brought Section 242 prosecutions in cases with less egregious facts.
As the DOJ has argued in other cases, the officer’s prior training on the use of force could be viewed “as evidence that his conduct was willful.” Are we to think that this officer didn’t have training on when force became excessive?
In another case, the DOJ argued to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals that to establish “willfulness,” the jury was required to find that the defendant “intended to use more force than was reasonable under the circumstances – i.e., force that violated [the victim’s] well-established due rights as a pretrial detainee.”
What makes the Babbitt case different? The victim and the location.
This case should have gone to the jury. If this killing took place in Minnesota or Chicago the results would have been VERY different. As it is, Ashli Babbitt should be remembered as one of the very first martyrs of the still just beginning oppression of Christian Middle America by the revolutionary regime that seized power in the Biden coup.
