George Floyd was a career criminal and a drug addict. He died of a drug overdose in police custody. The arresting officer was charged with murder for detaining him.
However, if you just walk into a room and shoot a peaceful protester for no reason – that’s fine. No probs.
Investigators have recommended that prosecutors decline to bring charges against a US Capitol Police officer in the shooting of a pro-Trump rioter who was killed during the insurrection, according to people familiar with the matter.
The shooting of the Capitol rioter, Ashli Babbitt, remains under investigation by the DC Metropolitan Police, the US Attorney’s Office in Washington, DC, and civil rights prosecutors, a routine process for shootings involving the Capitol Police. A final decision hasn’t been made, the people familiar with the probe told CNN.
Justice Department officials could make a final decision in the coming days.
A spokesperson for DC’s Metropolitan Police Department said in an email to CNN that “it is irresponsible to make an investigatory assumption or to jump to any conclusion without completing the thorough investigation.” CNN has reached out to the US Attorney’s Office in DC for comment. The Wall Street Journal was first to report on the recommendation.
Babbitt’s fatal shooting on January 6 occurred as a crowd pushed toward a doorway — barricaded by chairs and guarded by Capitol Police — that was the entrance to the Speaker’s Lobby in the US Capitol building. Babbitt was given medical assistance immediately and taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
I would not be surprised if when Kamala Harris becomes president, she gives this murderous cop a medal.
He still hasn’t been officially identified, by the way. It’s a lot different than the way any of these cases with the blacks are dealt with, no?
None of this “Black Lives Matter” stuff was about “police brutality.” It was an attempt to legalize black criminality.
There is nothing more brutal than walking into a room, seeing a group of people, and deciding to shoot a woman in the neck.
They’re not charging the cop – however, at the same time they announced no charges against the cop, they announced that they would be standing next to Ashli.
In a new federal criminal case announced against a man at the front of the crowd when Babbitt was shot, prosecutors pieced together how the crowd had threatened police minutes before the shooting.
The new charges against Zachary Jodan Alam offer the clearest portrait yet in court of the circumstances around Babbitt’s shooting, though graphic video of the violence and her falling has been publicly available since shortly after the siege.
Alam allegedly punched and kicked the glass panels of the closed doors, tried to smash it with a helmet, pushed himself against an officer and shouted in the faces of officers “f**k the blue.” After Alam smashed a window, Babbitt was shot, according to a new affidavit from the FBI used to support Alam’s charges.
Alam backed away after Babbitt was shot, prosecutors say. He was arrested during the weekend in eastern Pennsylvania, the Justice Department said on Monday.
Imagine announcing both these things in the same sentence.
I know everything is mad right now, and it’s very difficult to follow everything that is going on. But it sure is easy to see the difference between George Floyd and Ashli Babbitt.
These people rioted against police, then they moved the military to the Capitol.
That’s what’s happening right now. It’s just totally unqualified nonsense.
