Liberals claim that police are never held responsible when they kill a black man. Circumstances don’t typically matter. Whether the person had a weapon, attacked police, fled, or whatever the circumstances, the Left and the media demand that police be imprisoned. But what about when they murder an unarmed woman peacefully protesting — a woman like Ashli Babbitt, who was gunned down by an overzealous cop on January 6.
Babbitt had nothing on her but a bag containing a scarf and sweater. But if you ask the cop who shot her, that bag was filled with explosives she intended to use to blow up Congresspeople or something. It was this justification — not borne of facts, but of leftist rumors and paranoia — that caused the unnamed officer to murder Babbitt, he says. But we’ll never know his name and he will never stand trial. The Biden administration has closed the investigation.
Babbitt, an Air Force veteran who served our country with honor, deserves better than she got. She should be alive — and her murderer should definitely stand trial. But Biden’s DOJ says this isn’t the case:
“…the investigation revealed no evidence to establish that, at the time the officer fired a single shot at Ms. Babbitt, the officer did not reasonably believe that it was necessary to do so in self-defense or in defense of the Members of Congress and others evacuating the House Chamber. Acknowledging the tragic loss of life and offering condolences to Ms. Babbitt’s family, the U.S. Attorney’s Office and U.S. Department of Justice have therefore closed the investigation into this matter.”
If Biden was black or even a liberal, there would have been a proper investigation. Antifa and BLM would be burning down cities. There would have been a trial. We’d know the officer’s name. But she was a conservative, one who loved God and her country enough to place her life on the line to protect America. And now we will never see justice.
