Department of Justice Will Not Charge Ashli Babbitt’s Killer

No one here at Conservative Alerts has ever heard of an unarmed “insurrection.” Have you? Armed guards shooting peaceful protestors? We’ve seen plenty film of that since the protest at the Capitol. That America has political prisoners isn’t the only thing we learned after January 6th. Americans watched a year of policemen and Guardsmen kneeling to BLM rioters, and when American patriots assembled at the Capitol, they were shot at. The Biden Department of Justice Civil Rights Division (go figure) has announced that the killer, whom the coroner said committed homicide, will not be charged or prosecuted.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday that they will not pursue charges against the Capitol Police officer who gunned down unarmed election integrity protester Ashli Babbitt on January 6.

“The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia’s Public Corruption and Civil Rights Section and the Civil Rights Division, with the Metropolitan Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division (IAD), conducted a thorough investigation of Ms. Babbitt’s shooting,” a press release announced. “Officials examined video footage posted on social media, statements from the officer involved and other officers and witnesses to the events, physical evidence from the scene of the shooting, and the results of an autopsy.”

“Based on that investigation, officials determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution. Officials from IAD informed a representative of Ms. Babbitt’s family today of this determination,” the statement added.

The Department of Justice, the IAD, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office also refused to disclose the name of the officer who killed Babbitt, in contrast to cases where officers involved in shootings of black suspects almost always have their names and personal information released publicly.

The news comes after the Washington D.C. medical examiner ruled that Babbitt’s cause of death was a homicide. Read more…
