Lethal.  You're judging this situation with the benefit of hindsight.  Since the shooting successfully prevented the breaching of the barricade, you are wrongly confident in assuming that her leading the breach wouldn't have ended badly for those on the other side.  Of course, this is actually unknowable and given what was going on.  There's no reason for those on the other side to say, "well, I'll wait for you to come on in get directly violent with me first and only then will I consider retaliating."  This wasn't a bunch of looters at Target looking for TV's, this was a raging political insurrection on our nation's capital, and I would have had no problem seeing more people get shot. 

And if the political tables were turned, I would feel the same way if it were BLM members getting shot.  I wish I could say the same for my conservative friends on this board, but we all know you'd be cheering law enforcement if they were BLM.

To my opinion, she was demonstrating temper and intent.  She didn't have means, though.  

Irrelevant.  She didn't pass through security / metal detector, so there's no way for the cop to know that.  

Trigger happy cop? Likely. 

If the cop was trigger happy, they wouldn't have waited until the barricade was breached to fire on someone and would have shot the lunatic who was screaming and breaking the glass part of the door with his fist.

I for one would like more information about all of this, credible information, not rumor.
Well, take to the streets. That's about the only thing that gets government attention on this matter.

I'm afraid you are right.  We used to be able to correct things via the ballot box.  But it appears that that is now rigged as well.....

Hard to tell when Dems are stonewalling any thorough investigations in any of the states....although we may see a real investigation in Arizona.

One source suggested he was Secret Service, and the VP was there, but most were Capitol Police, who are different from DC Metro Police.  But we don't even know that for sure.  Usually, we have some sort of "story line" as to why any LEO fired his weapon.
I doubt he was Secret Service. They’re highly trained and aren’t chicken shite scared of their own shadow cowards like the officer that shot the girl. Seriously, if that was a BLM event, the cop was white, and the girl was black, the officer would be charged.

And I'd still be commending the cop, and so would most everyone else here.

So, has that actually happened?  A white cop shooting an unarmed black woman at a BLM event?

It's just ironic that out of all these mostly peaceful protests, the only fatal shooting during one of them has been a black cop shooting an unarmed white woman.

The irony here is that members the party of self-annointed patriotic Americans can't bring themselves to make any distinction between the storming of our Capitol building in Washington DC and BLM riots.

the only fatal shooting during one of them has been a black cop shooting an unarmed white woman.

Why are you making this racial?  I find that ironic considering how much conservatives hate it whenever anyone brings up race.

All the news reports say he is a Capitol Police officer, not SS (now).  I something some about his being SS earlier, but it was speculative, and wrong apparently.
