(RepublicanWire.org) – The mother of Ashli Babbitt, the Trump supporting woman who was murdered on January 6th, 2021, was arrested on Friday at the U.S. Capitol for jaywalking.
Two years ago today, Babbitt was shot and killed by Capitol police after she walked into the Capitol building. Babbitt was attempting to get through a door when a Capitol Police officer shot her in the neck. She later died at the hospital.
On Friday, Babbitt’s mother Micki went to D.C. to protest her daughters death as she continues to look for answers.
Micki was seen being handcuffed and taken into custody by multiple police officers while onlookers protested.
“You murdered [Ashli] inside the Capitol, now you’re going to arrest her?” one onlooker said.
“I did not murder her daughter,” one officer replied in front of the crowd of people.
On Jan. 6, 2021, Babbitt, an unarmed Air Force veteran, was fatally shot by Lt. Michael Byrd. while attempting to make entry into the interior of the Capitol Building.
As reported by Kyle Mazza of UNF News, the grieving mother was protesting with a group outside of the Capitol, holding signs with messages reading “JESUS IS LORD,” as well as ones displaying the faces of Babbitt and Kevin Greeson, who also died during the Jan. 6 protests.
Though Greeson’s wife said that he had high blood pressure and suffered a heart attack, the group of protestors maintain that he was a murder victim.
“MURDERED BY CAPITOL POLICE” could be read on the signs, below the faces of Babbitt and Greeson.
Micki, was later released, and is due back in court on January 26th.
