Internal Police Docs Reveal No Good Reason For Shooting Ashli Babbitt

By Peter Boykin – American Political Commentator / Citizen Journalist


More than 500 pages of internal D.C. Metropolitan Police documents about the fatal shooting of Ashli Babbit at the Capitol on January 6th reveal never-before-heard witness accounts that she was not holding a weapon and that she wasn’t given any verbal commands before being shot.

Where the documents came from: Back in May Judicial Watch sued the DC Police for the documents through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Back up: Babbit, an Air Force veteran, was tragically killed during the Capitol riot on January 6th as she attempted to climb through a window [pictured above, right] into the House chamber. That’s when Capitol Police officer ​​Lt. Michael Byrd [pictured above, left] shot and killed her.

Here are some of the transcripts of interviews with Capitol police:

“Sergeant [redacted] observed a white, female protester was climbing through an opened area where the glass pane had been knocked out… He did not see anything in the female protester’s hands prior to the gunshot.”

A summary report of an officer directly behind Byrd, said: “He did not see Ms. McEntee [Babbitt] in possession of any potential weapons… He reiterated that he did not observe that she was armed.”
Another summary said: “Sergeant [redacted] did not see anything in Ms. Babbitt’s hands prior to hearing the gunshot.”

This summary is key: “He did not hear any verbal commands” before Babbitt was shot.
There was a conflicting report summary from another officer that says Byrd did give verbal commands. But that same interviewee also stated that Byrd shot twice when he really shot once. So you can make your own decision on who to believe.

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said: “These previously secret records show there was no good reason to shoot and kill Ashli Babbitt… The Biden-Garland Justice Department and the Pelosi Congress have much to answer for the over the mishandling and cover-up of this scandalous killing of an American citizen by the U.S. Capitol Police.”
