Capitol riot: Shooting death of Trump supporter under investigation

The US Attorney for Washington DC has launched a federal excessive force investigation into the death of an Air Force veteran who was shot dead by a Capitol Police officer as she and a group of Trump supporters swarmed the building. Ashli Babbitt, 35, from San Diego was shot in the chest while she tried to climb through a window into the congressional chambers. She died in hospital hours later.

The shooting of Ms.Babbit was entirely unnecessary. Lethal force was not called for. Multiple officers can be seen in the hallway. Hqd she breeched the hallway she simply could have been tackled. Shooting her from 3 feet away while she carried no weapon and was of little threat is pretty gross.

I don’t expect much from the investigation into her death. Not because someone is protecting an officer but because it will change the narrative that might put a more sympathetic light on her.

Yes let's the government who just killed a veteran on Capitol Hill evaluate how good a boy it was in all of this. That totally seems reasonable, and not at all a conflict of interest. /S

Don't these officers carry tasers? If they simply wanted to immobilize her, a taser could have done that very effectively.

Clear case of excessive force, just arrest her, they shot her just to prove they could, completely unnecessary...

She tried to break into a room secured by officers with guns. An oft repeated statement from the right when peaceful protesters die or are injured "play stupid games, win stupid prizes"

Fair enough. Should make for a interesting case to get the officers side of the story.... At the end of the day I don't see this going anywhere really. And no I don't feel bad, sorry you made a $tup!d decision.

She wasn’t murdered. She was shot.

Why a probe? We know she was there willingly. She and all of them were let off too easy tbh
