It’s hard to believe anyone could justify shooting an unarmed woman. Still, a Republican is claiming that the US Capitol Police lieutenant who fatally shot pro-Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt “didn’t have a choice.” Babbitt was shot in the neck as she tried to climb through the window next to a barricaded door in the Capitol.
Oklahoma Republican Markwayne Mullin was interviewed by ‘Good Morning America’ today and claimed there was no choice but to shoot the unarmed innocent woman. According to reports, videos of the shooting from different angles show that she had NOTHING IN HER HANDS when she was hoisted up into the window by fellow rioters seconds before being shot.
Rep. Mullin described what happened as Babbit came through the window:
“They were trying to come through the front door, which is where I was at in the chamber, and in the back they were trying to come through the speaker’s lobby, and that’s problematic when you’re trying to defend two fronts. When they broke the glass in the back, the lieutenant that was there…him and I already had multiple conversations prior to this…and he didn’t have a choice at the time. The mob was going to come through the door, and there were a lot of members and staff that were in danger at the time. And when he used his weapon, that’s a decision that’s very hard for anyone to make and, once you draw your weapon like that, you have to defend yourself with deadly force.”
How were the people in the Capitol in danger? Why did the lietenant who shot Babbit have to use “deadly force” against a woman who was unarmed?
Rep. Mullin is just as lily-livered as so many other Republicans.
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE SHOOTING:
After a summer of violence, murder, and destruction from Black Lives Matter and Antifa, where there was very little push back from authorities, an unarmed Trump supporter was just murdered by Capitol police for trying to climb through a window. Suddenly, it’s not ok to protest or breach security when for months; the far-left repeatedly did so much worse than this and got away with it. It’s disgusting that Joe Biden called Antifa “just an idea” but had harsh words today for the protest in DC. He NEVER came out to denounce the violence from Antifa.
It’s being reported that the unarmed woman who was shot and killed by the Capitol police is from San Diego and has been identified as 14 year Air Force Veteran Ashli Babbit:
This is very sad…apparently she was a 14 year Air Force veteran – she was unarmed…this needs to be investigated… https://t.co/W6XPouA014

She was shot as she tried to climb through a window at the Capitol.
She fell back into a small group of people and was given aid after being shot in the neck.
Please pray for the family and loved ones of this Patriot woman who was shot in cold blood today.
This woman should be remembered for the Patriot she was and for the woman who simply protested her government and was murdered for it. The videos below are from Ashli Babbit’s Twitter account:
