The US Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt on Jan. 6 during the Democrat’s grossly exaggerated unarmed “insurrection” was cleared Monday after an internal review concluded the action may have spared the lives of lawmakers and staffers who had barricaded themselves inside the building. That is like saying I killed this guy on my front lawn because I thought he MIGHT break into my house, despite the fact he had no weapon. However, he could have invaded my home and killed someone.
This is an international disgrace. The US has absolutely no right to criticize China or Russia for human rights violations. This should be no surprise. During the Kent State massacre, when National Guardsmen opened fire on unarmed students, they too were not prosecuted. However, at least then, Vice President Spiro Agnew called the Kent State shootings in an interview on the David Frost murder “but not first degree” since it was not premeditated. However, one part-time student, Terry Norman, was believed to be a government plant to observe student protesters. Norman was present during the May 4 protests, taking photographs to identify student leaders while carrying a sidearm and wearing a gas mask. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover denied that Norman had ever worked for the FBI when Norman had admitted that he did work for the FBI. Nothing seems to ever change.
