On Monday the Capitol Police released the results of an internal investigation into the death of Military veteran and January 6th U.S. Capitol rioter Ashli Babbitt, who was shot by a Capitol Police officer.

According to The Hill

U.S. Capitol Police have formally exonerated an officer who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt on Jan. 6.

“USCP’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) determined the officer’s conduct was lawful and within Department policy, which says an officer may use deadly force only when the officer reasonably believes that action is in the defense of human life, including the officer’s own life, or in the defense of any person in immediate danger of serious physical injury,” Capitol Police said in a statement.

The officer, who remains unidentified, will not face disciplinary action.

Their actions “potentially saved Members and staff from serious injury and possible death from a large crowd of rioters who forced their way into the U.S. Capitol and to the House Chamber where Members and staff were steps away,” Capitol Police said in the release.

The agency continued, “If the doors were breached, the rioters would have immediate access to the House Chambers. The officer’s actions were consistent with the officer’s training and USCP policies and procedures.”

Babbitt was shot outside of the Speaker’s gallery just off the House floor in the Capitol, according to The Hill.

He chose lethal force. If it had been another cop and a didndonuffin, it would be murder. GTFOH.

So they don’t even release the name in this report but exonerate the police officer, what if they did that in the Michael Brown or George Floyd situations, the people would still be rioting!

Michael Brown got shot because he did something really stupid, dove into cop car across cops lap trying to take his gun. Clean shoot all the way. And “hands up, don’t shoot” never happened.

A black officer shoots a white conservative, so it’s ok. Just like a muslim somali shot that Austrailian woman in Minneapolis, and it was brushed under the table. White people better wake up and realize that black racist democrats are going to start murdering us in great numbers because it’s been open season declared on us. I will not be stopped by a liberal bullet, i have ammo, protective gear, and determination to liberate America once more from tyranny.

Know who the enemy really is…..Bideni is a CATHOLIC traitor. Everything south of the USA is CATHOLIC and failed forever. Have you ever heard of anything CATHOLIC that is not corrupt? Mafia, Costa Nostra, MS-13, Vatican, the list goes on… CA, NY, NJ, and the list goes on of 100% FAILURE. Vote for ANY CATHOLIC and you vote for a thousand years of 100% FAILURE.

NOPE! You can’t blame the Catholics anymore than any other religion. There are good and bad people of all races and religions. Character is what needs to be judged. Anyone of good character, love of God, family, country, and friends is your best start when judging another person.

Biden, Pelosi, and any other Democrat who claims to be Catholic is a liar. With the Democrats’ current agenda, it is impossible to be both. They will pay the price for their deceit!

The Pope is a communist, I’m feel I’m a devout Catholic and don’t understand how all the Cardinals voted him to be Pope. The man is a Biden in disguise. Like the saying “ Biden is not my President “ The Pope is not my spiritual leader!!’

What do the Marxists call it, “doxxing”? If our crack DoJ can’t find this wrong in any way, I suspect they will reap what they have sown.

Sure an unarmed woman climbing through a broken door who wasn’t even given a warning is a threat to an armed cop to the point he has to shoot her rather than tasing her.

Doubtful, if it were a fed he/she would be encouraging even more radical comments from those opposed to her murder by the cop.

I haven’t seen a threat toward you YET. But rest assured, if you ANTIFA supporting trash want to try real patriots, bring your A+++ game. You won’t be disappointed in the amount of fight real conservative patriots have when defending our rights and country from liberal excrement like Democrats and supporters alike.

Expose his name. Where’s the transparency? What kind of threat did she present to him? Where’s the justice? If she was BLACK you can bet your ass the outcome would have been different.

…I wonder if he’s connected to Lon Horiuchi, the BATFE thug who executed Vicki Weaver while she was holding her infant son? L.H. got promoted.

For those who may wonder what BATFE stands for: Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives or in the vernacular of the street: Bureau of Beer, Butts, Bullets and Bombs.
