Michael Byrd had to have his 15 minutes of fame, so he decided to come out on NBC News to be interviewed by a very sympathetic Lester Holt. Who is Michael Byrd? He’s the 28-year veteran of the Capitol Police who is the careless murderer of Ashli Babbitt, who did nothing to deserve to be shot in cold blood for crawling through a window. She was UNARMED and was with other people who were close by.
How could this officer think it was necessary to murder a woman like Ashli? She was not armed and not aggressive, but this is the same inept officer who recklessly left his loaded service weapon in a bathroom in the Capitol in 2019.
Until now, Michael Byrd was in the shadows and was not coming forward. For some crazy reason, he wanted to be interviewed by NBC, perhaps to garner sympathy. He claims he’s been getting death threats. We’re guessing being murdered like Ashli Babbitt is a much worse fate.
Lieutenant Michael Byrd confirms to NBC News that he shot and killed Ashli Babbitt.
Byrd defends his actions by saying, “I know that day I saved countless lives.”
Byrd also credited his training.
