So, how many here who said "good shoot" might be rethinking that now?

 

It is a routine investigation says the Times, but note that it is excessive force, which is interesting angle.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Washington is leading investigations into the deaths of a woman who entered the Capitol building with a crowd of rioters on Jan. 6 and an officer who was killed while trying to police the violent mob, according to Michael Sherwin, the office’s top prosecutor.

 

Prosecutors in the office’s Civil Rights division have opened a formal, federal excessive force case into the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt, who was shot by a Capitol Police officer as she and a group of President Trump’s supporters swarmed the building....

 

The investigation into Ms. Babbitt’s shooting is “routine, standard procedure whenever an officer deploys lethal force,” a Justice Department spokeswoman said....

 

The investigations into the deaths of Ms. Babbitt and Officer Sicknick will focus on different types of crimes.

 

Ms. Babbitt was fatally shot by a Capitol Police officer inside the building as she climbed through a broken window leading to the Speaker’s Lobby. The U.S. attorney’s office is investigating whether “excessive force” was used against her.

She was trained to defend this country not to try to overthrow and destroy this country. She got what any traitor deserves. She paid the ultimate price for her ignorance. 

 

Not only was it a good shoot but it was done with the countries best interest in mind. 

 

Like any shooting there will always be investigations done. This doesn't change the narrative of her actions. She was there unlawfully and the person that shot her gave her warnings and he felt threatened. No different than your personal home, you fell threatened you will react.

The big story out of all of this will be how the Duck Dynasty was able to walk into the Capital building with really very little opposition

Crawl through any recently broken window, and your fate is likely to be the same as hers.

Especially a window in a building guarded by armed federal cops.

Fourteen years in the military should have taught her that, if anything. I am sure she stood sentry duty at some time in her service.

Kinda makes ya wonder why she did it, knowing what she is presumed to know...did she get caught up in the moment?

There’s been pictures of the police holding the door open for them. There will so much more to come in the next weeks. I’d almost bet they had a stand down order.

Like it was a staged event and they were invited in! 

I wouldn't be surprised to see video of the Cap Police opening the barricades and waving people to the entrances.

Not sure, but I for one never said any such thing.

 

I don't see how deadly force was authorized, but I wasn't there.   Should be investigated.

 

On another note, I think that overall, restraint was exercised by the Capitol Police.   All in all a bad situation.

News Flash - White perpetrators have never been the 'Victims of Excessive force'. It is certainly not going to start now.

Goes hand in hand with all the riots, looting, and burning you don't see after the killing of a white person by police

A good journalist will ask police what the rules of engagement were.  ROE is the key to any riot/unrest during protests.  I'm thinking ROE was no drawn weapons unless a weapon is drawn on you or fear of bodily harm.  

Question for anyone second guessing the police response: what do you think should have been the response?  Keep in mind any suggestions should have been equally applied to all riots in the past 6 months or so.  Do you draw a red line and shoot anyone passing it?  Do you shoot anyone if they throw a bottle, brick, Molotov cocktail?  Or do you just let the rioters burn off steam by destroying things like was done in most riots of the past 6 months?  I think law enforcement exercised extreme restraint.

Throwing bricks, bottles, Molotov cocktails IS deadly force.  (That force, reasonably likely to result in grievous bodily injury (loss of life/limb/eyesight), or death.  

 

Trespassing in a public building is not.  

 

Get it?

What should have been the appropriate response?
