Babbitt shooting internal police docs reveal 'no good reason for shooting,' according to Judicial Watch

The documents show witnesses recount they did not see Babbitt holding a weapon

https://www.foxnews.com/us/documents-ashli-babbitt-death-foia-capitol-police

More than 500 pages of internal documents from DC Metropolitan Police concerning the fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol on Jan. 6 reveal witness accounts stating she was not holding a weapon at the time of her death and how "upset" the officer was after shooting her.

"These previously secret records show there was no good reason to shoot and kill Ashli Babbitt," stated Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, which obtained the documents through a May 2021 FOIA lawsuit. "The Biden-Garland Justice Department and the Pelosi Congress have much to answer for the over the mishandling and cover-up of this scandalous killing of an American citizen by the U.S. Capitol Police."


"He did not see Ms. McEntee [Babbitt] in possession of any potential weapons," the summary report states.

Another report on an interview with a Capitol Police officer on Feb. 4 stated, "He did not hear any verbal commands" before Babbitt was shot.

Who cares what the president of some charity thinks about the shooting?  His opinion is no more relevant than anyone in this forum.  

Judicial Watch is a two star charity that "needs improvement" meaning you cannot even "give with confidence" to the organization.  

I'm sure the president of My Pillow would agree there was no good reason to shoot Babbit.  Why not post a quote from him, too?

She didn't?  Gee I thought the NYT reported she was carrying an AK47 in plain view and was aiming it right at the officer? 

That summary's a real bombshell!

Yes fuzz, we know you think that not only did Ashli deserve a bullet but that the cop should have done a double tap without warning.

A capitol hill police officer's account from the report:
"The crowd on the outside of the previously barricaded east doors began to step back, and some raised their hands in the air. Sergeant [redacted] did not see anything in Ms. Babbitt’s hands prior to hearing the gunshot."

Another report on an interview with a Capitol Police officer on Feb. 4 stated, "He did not hear any verbal commands" before Babbitt was shot."

Ats  OK.   She deserved to die.   She was trespassing and trying to gain entry.   Enough to kill in any situation, like at a courthouse or McDonalds.

It's a hell of a thing to kill someone for stepping forward through a window....To end a life for that is beyond comprehension....

Yes, that was the correct decision - notice they didn't get shot.  

Sergeant [redacted] did not see anything in Ms. Babbitt’s hands prior to hearing the gunshot."

He didn't know if she had anything in her hands, or in her pockets.  

Another report on an interview with a Capitol Police officer on Feb. 4 stated, "He did not hear any verbal commands" before Babbitt was shot."

He didn't need to hear any commands, just to apply common sense.  If that barricade is breached, then he was within his legal rights to take lethal action.  

JG has been the only conservative here with the intellectual integrity to admit that if it was BLM storming the Capital and that exact situation had ensued, that there would be no outcry from the Fox-News mind-numbed robots, and that you would be fully supportive of law enforcement (as would I).

Perhaps, but had it been a blm shot, can we all agree they would have burned down the capital and most of DC?

And the cop that shot a BLMer, well, his life would be destroyed beyond recognition.  

Which, was the part that angered me most.  Protecting their own…..blatant hypocrisy.

Is it fair to say that since no one has been charged with sedition or insurrection that Babbitt was shot for trespassing?

Probably, but that's not the point of hypocrisy here.

I'm not protecting my own, I'm just being objective about the situation.  And kudos to you for being the only conservative here who can admit that the only reason Babbit has so much conservative support is because she herself is a conservative.  As you know, if she were black/BLM in the exact same circumstances, all these hypocrites would be supporting the officer.  THAT'S what should anger you most, if you truly dislike blatant hypocrisy.
