The Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt on Jan. 6 as she joined a pro-Trump mob ransacking the Capitol will not face criminal charges, the Justice Department said on Wednesday.

In their investigation, federal prosecutors were unable to prove that the officer was not acting in self-defense or acting to defend members of Congress.

The deceased was going to be the first traitor to breach the only door separating the blood-thirsty mob from innocent civilians.

Surprised to hear this was even a question.

Still makes me kind of mad that the officers coming up the stairs stopped to give her aid instead of aiding their colleagues by clearing out the crowd at the top of the steps.

The insurrectionists were treated with kid's gloves.

While I am not surprised at the outcome, I do think both the question and the investigation were warranted,

Whenever a law enforcement officer fires upon, and kills, a person, an investigation must be done, and the evidence produced should be the determining factor regarding the appropriateness of the weapon discharge.

Surprised you can imply such a double standard without any mental duress. Was the unarmed girl a threat to the officer? Did the officer issue verbal commands that he was going to shoot? Could the officer have employed a non-lethal alternative?

Very strange to me, because I am sure you are defending the latest ------- that was gunned down in Minnesota. Unlike Ashli, he had prior weapons charges known to the officers, he resisted arrest fighting with 2 officers and re-entered his vehicle, which is itself a deadly weapon. They verbally warned him several times he would be tasered and he did not stop. Yes, the woman shot him rather than tasered him but she was just arrested - which I assume you support. How on earth is Ashli Babbitt more of a threat deserving of deadly force than a guy actively engaged in fighting with the police with a deadly weapon at his disposal? How can you justify that woman officer getting arrested and this guy not even being identified?

OK, I see why you might be so confused about this.

The issue is not whether or not the person was a threat to the officer.

The issue was whether or not the breach of the security perimeter was a threat to our Government.

So, please explain and rationalize why someone breaking through that doorway was OK.

You think there was a credible threat to the government posed by an unarmed woman that was trespassing? Should they indiscriminately gun down the Antifa people trying to burn the court houses as well? How about the people jumping the fence at the White House? I think you must really inflate the threat posed by the mob on Jan 6 - they didn't actually kill anyone, only the cop killed someone. The facts are in - 2 deaths to health conditions, a meth overdose, and a woman gunned down for no real reason. Nobody killed after being hit by fire extinguishers.

Let me explain it this way - illegals crossing the border are invading the country - they should not be gunned down unless posing a threat. A guy breaking into my home should not be gunned down unless posing a threat. An unarmed, non-threatening woman trespassing should not be gunned down either.

Well, that is an entirely different topic, and one I suspect the "stand your ground" folk in Florida may have an issue with.

But let's get back to the issue here.

There was an assault upon the Capitol.

Multiple perimeter defenses had been breached.

Inside the Capitol, a person was breaching an inner perimeter between the insurrectionists and those who govern the Country.

From what I saw, she was the first person of many intending to breach that line of defense.

So you seem to be saying that she should have been welcomed into the Capitol by those who have sworn to defend our Government?

She wasn't in a position to be afforded those sorts of things as a normal citizen going about their normal lives would and should be.

Because she was participating in an insurrection against our country and was breaching a barricade clearly constructed to defend that hallway.

Family values, it is breathtaking how wrong you are. Her lack of being armed, and being a woman like you insist on pointing out, is immaterial. The police were outnumbered 6-10:1. The mob has already invited several and killed one officer. They had discovered weapons on the exterior protestors, and they had just smashed through a door the police were desperately trying to use to shield protected people. All of that goes to whether deadly force was justified, or not. Clearly, it was absolutely justified, and affirmed by both the department and the attorneys office.

There is no deployment of less lethal means when deadly force is justified. Trying to do results in the officer and the people he is protecting being killed.

The icing in the cake is, her family applied for veterans death benefits for her, and they were denied because she was committing a crime at the time of her death, a disqualifying event.

I am not glad she is dead, it's a terrible tragedy, but she caused her own death.

Are you familiar with the term "play stupid games, win stupid prizes?"

Ashli played a stupid game...and won a stupid prize.

But I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the typical hand-wringers here are claiming to support the shooting of an unarmed military veteran with no criminal record, even while continuing to demand justice for violent criminals who are shot while engaging in violent activity.

I'm guessing it's because she was a white, non-progressive that justifies the shooting. There certainly appears to be something of a double standard in any case.

"The mob has already invited several and killed one officer."

My understanding is that there was only one homicide that day, and it was Ashli Babbitt. Is that not the case?

It also appears as it many here, including yourself, are actually justifying the use of deadly force when police are outnumbered by a potentially violent crowd.

So what do you think they should do in Portland the next time they riot there? Open fire?

Recently, didn't the police shoot some guy who was attacking someone, and the officer, and was trying to get away in vehicle with 2 small children in the back? really big deal in the news....

Where was that? The perp is paralyzed now. I think the cop shot him several times because he believed the perp was going for a weapon or intended to drive off with those little girls in the back seat of the car.

Anyway.....that cop was bad....this cop was good, right?

But seriously...maybe this is a an opportunity to realize that you in fact can really put yourselves in the shoes of a police officer under very difficult circumstances. That when people are clearly a danger and committed to engaging in criminal activity......the police have some room when trying to stop them.

Was this shooting justified? absolutely.

Justified? I don't know about that. But it's certainly understandable. And given the circumstances the officer who fired the shot, IMO, should not be charged with a crime.

But we've have seen how many riots over the last year due to a cop shooting a generally violent suspect with a generally criminal record. So how is that bad when the shooting of Ashli Babbitt is a good thing?

Agree-with comments. I don't know what the legal punishment is for insurrection. I'm not a lawyer. What I do know is that suspects are entitled to due process up until the point where they have been declared hostile by a competent athority...at which point you hit them with a hellfire. I've seen it happen thousands of times.

There was a lot of controversy when Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen was killed by a drone strike in Yemen. The complaints came almost universally from those on the left.

Intent?

How do you gauge intent?

If someone is throwing a Molotov cocktail, or attempting to set fire to an occupied building, should LE/Military respond with deadly force?

Personally, I would say no. But it seems like many of out friends on the left hold the position that lethal force is acceptable, provided the target is not someone who has aligning viewpoints.

She was shot because the cops were totally outnumbered by as much as 10 to 1... were violently harming officers. And behind the door she was trying to break through cops were telling her to stop with guns drawn because the police had PROTECTED PERSONS there with them. She was shot because she was the first target that tried to kill them or innocents. They get to assume that was her intent due to the totality of the circumstances.

What I'm less clear on is how some of our friends here have repeatedly criticized police forces in situations where non-right wing rioters were actively engaged in the destruction of public property and attacking police. To wit, Portland. And Minneapolis. And Baltimore. And probably many other places where our friends criticized the cops for using any level of force, many even claiming that the presence of police represented an unnecessary level of force.

This place should be a real-life testing ground for honing one's ability to make and form arguments sans logical fallacies.

Some people know what logical fallacies are, but simply don't care. It's called Sophism and was a scourge even back in Socrates' time (469-398 BC (BCE).

Sophists just want to have their cake and eat it too. They don't care about logic or propriety. Additionally, they want to keep the status quo by any means necessary. Which means more for them and less for everybody else.

It is exceedingly difficult to argue with a Sophist because they aren't using logic. So, in addition to presenting your argument, you have to take the time to educate your interlocutor where his logical fallacies lay. Which, he will, disregard out-of-hand anyway.

There is a way to embarrass the Sophist. Perry Mason did this exquisitely. But, not only did he have to exert the effort to prove his client innocent, he had to do the footwork of the Prosecutor to determine where the Prosecutor's sophism and illogicalness sprouted from in the first place.

My old boss instructed me on this. He said opinions don't mean ----. You have to make a study of the situation with graphs, statistics, and proof before anyone in power will take you seriously. Even when the injustices were blatant to anyone with a sense of self-control.

So, instead of just showing up at a board meeting with hearsay and opinion, I had to continuously have documents and proof of a systemic or personnel error that needed to be remedied. I learned you simply can't take someone's word for it, no matter how trustworthy their word has been in the past.

One thing I've observed is that most Science and Chemistry departments are nearly universal in their excellent instruction. Except Texas A&M and Oral Roberts Univ., but that's a story for another day.

However, it appears Economics schools provide a variety of dogmas depending on the school. If Madbomber will allow me to use him as an example, most of his dogma is straight out of Atlas Shrugged and not an academic economics education. Or it is a blend of the two, with personal ambition at the expense of the community, coming out on top.

Of the tens of thousands, perhaps millions of words he's typed on the subject, it all boils down to the same thing: The individual is supreme, the town, community, country are distant seconds. Even to the extent that if the country is progressing beyond the status quo, it's time for the dogs to turn on their masters and start being involved with coups d'etats.

The logic-defying irony is this from someone who is probably a Major or LTC in the US Air Force and is even more disconcerting being that the primary idea the military indoctrinates you with is the protection of the country, especially those who are too weak to defend themselves. Incredulously, his mindset is to take advantage of, oppress, and destroy the weak in his own country.

He and Boaz have stated in the past that their upper ranking superiors think the same way they do. If this is the case, and not simply two coincidental anecdotal responses, then God help us.
