Capitol Police Internal Memos Reveal No One Believed Ashli Babbit Was Armed, and No One Remembers Sergeant Byrd Issuing a Verbal Warning Before Killing Her

A righteous kill though, right?

More than 500 pages of internal documents from DC Metropolitan Police concerning the fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol on Jan. 6 reveal witness accounts stating she was not holding a weapon at the time of her death and how "upset" the officer was after shooting her.

"These previously secret records show there was no good reason to shoot and kill Ashli Babbitt," stated Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, which obtained the documents through a May 2021 FOIA lawsuit. "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."

...

A Capitol Police sergeant, whose name is redacted, described seeing Babbitt climbing through a broken window, but did not witness her holding a weapon, according to a portion of the documents received by Judicial Watch.

"Sergeant [redacted] observed a white, female protester was climbing through an opened area where the glass pane had been knocked out. He heard a gunshot and this female fell backwards through the opening. The crowd on the other side of the barricaded east doors, began to step back and some put their hands in the air. Sergeant [redacted] observed Lieutenant Byrd step back just after hearing the gunshot. He did not see anything in the female protester's hands prior to the gunshot," the Internal Affairs Division report stated.

"Sergeant [redacted] never went on the other side of the barricaded east door. He also did not know that it was Lieutenant Byrd who shot his gun until he talked to him moments after it occurred. Lieutenant Byrd looked upset and stated, 'I was the one who took the shot,'" the report continued.

Note that the cops are observing the Blue Code of Silence -- no one will say she was unarmed. They'll just state it in the negative: they did not notice a weapon. Not that they affirmatively noticed no weapon.

Judicial Watch noted that in a written transcript of the interview with the sergeant, he detailed he was not sure "if something happened to" Byrd that "caused him to take the shot or not."

...

The sergeant went onto describe that Byrd was "visibly upset" after shooting Babbitt.

"No, his eyes were red. He was, you could see he was visibly upset and he just, you know, kind of comfort him and told him, you know, we gotta get outta here," the transcript of the interview states.

...

"He did not see Ms. McEntee [Babbitt] in possession of any potential weapons," the summary report states.

"He reiterated that he did not observe that she was armed."

That interviewee also described Byrd as "upset" following the shooting.

"Lieutenant Byrd was shaking, he did not say anything…. Byrd was nervous, teary-eyed, and appeared very upset. His voice [was] also shaky when he called for medical assistance over the radio. Lieutenant Byrd was still very upset," the report continued.

...


"The crowd on the outside of the previously barricaded east doors began to step back, and some raised their hands in the air. Sergeant [redacted] did not see anything in Ms. Babbitt's hands prior to hearing the gunshot."

Witnesses also say they did not observe any verbal warnings or commands before the shooting:

Another report on an interview with a Capitol Police officer on Feb. 4 stated, "He did not hear any verbal commands" before Babbitt was shot.

But some rando "reached out" to say oh, he definitely heard warnings.


A separate Jan. 6 phone interview with a man who "reached out" to the Metro PD, who claimed to have been in the House Chambers at the time of the shooting, contradicted the officer's Feb. 4 interview.

He said he did in fact hear Byrd shout "loud verbal commands" that he would "shoot" before firing at Babbitt. That interviewee also claimed Byrd fired twice, not once.

"He was yelling, he was giving commands. Um, he was saying, I will shoot. Uh, he was saying some other stuff. I couldn’t clearly make out what he was saying, but he was definitely, uh, giving commands, no question about it," the interviewee said, according to transcripts.

"He [Byrd], uh, did everything he could do... He was by himself, we were defending the front door and they were shaking it."

Yeah, that's an informant. And it sounds like he was told that Byrd was in trouble for not having issued a verbal challenge before executing an unarmed woman, so Uncle G would consider it a big favor if he "reached out" and said he heard all kinds of verbal warnings.

This is not hyperbole: in the liberal sector of the corporate media -- by far the largest and most dominant wing -- lying and disinformation are not prohibited or even frowned up. It's encouraged and rewarded, as long as it's directed at the ideological enemies of their audience.

YAAAS! Say it. This is what is happening. This isn't about "ooh they aren't following journalistic best practice" or whatever. They exist to go after their ideological enemies - i.e., us. And they will do anything in pursuit of that, including, perhaps especially, lying.

++++
So the Capitol Police murdered an unarmed American citizen in cold blood and without warning or remorse, then engaged in a conspiracy to obfuscate the truth, extend lies, ensure nobody was punished and to blame the victim, all of which was known and actively suppressed by higher management and was further extended and enabled by a compliant press corps?

There was a time when that would be at least somewhat surprising, even if in some minor way.

We're not messing around here.

Obligatory Floyd Ferris quote:

"Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted -- and you create a nation of law-breakers -- and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."

Investigators thought the call was fake because the informant finished his call with, "that white bitch had it coming and if I didn't drop my gun and then accidentally kicked it across the floor, I would have shot some more bitches." Investigators decided not to put the informants last statement in the record.

We have to understand just where we are as a nation. There is one political party (pretty much in charge of everything) that is allowed to do whatever it wants. It will not be punished, it will never face justice, the lawlessness will not stop, even when it's murder. I wish I had an answer to it short of bannable comments.

The fact that they didn't do that speaks to the fact that they know the shoot was anything but righteous and are trying to recursively fix the murderers fuckup.

Nah, they'd never ever "find" that gun. Too much risk. They'd just blame an "insurrectionist." The rest of the cops there, seeing another cop get shot, would have opened fire more or less indiscriminately and perpetrated a slaughter. None of them would be punished. They would be lauded as heroes who overcame the violent, deadly attempt to overthrow the United States Government, given a lot of paid time off to recover, then most of them would be cashiered with a bonus-sized pension.

Possible, but not likely. They wanted violence to happen. They expected there to be more than there was. They expected a lot of the people who entered the capitol to be armed. So when the shooting started (ie he shoots Babbitt), they expected people to start drawing weapons.

As I've mentioned here for months - the entire thing was projection on Pelosi and Co's part. They fully expected violence, because that's what they'd do. Then, things didn't go as planned. They fire flash-bangs into a crowd milling about. No reaction. People going to cops to report window breakers. Not good. Plant pipe bombs around, hoping somebody would clue in and pick one up. Nothing. Let them in since they're not breaking in. They walk between the velvet ropes and take selfies. WTAF? So, in one last desperate attempt to provoke the crowd, they execute Ashli. Nothing.

She was then goaded into going through first and paid dearly. It seemed off. There was no reason for a shoot other than this was the point in the building where you get shot and the congresscritters on the other side are good with it, regardless of party.

We have to understand just where we are as a nation. There is one political party (pretty much in charge of everything) that is allowed to do whatever it wants. It will not be punished, it will never face justice, the lawlessness will not stop, even when it's murder. I wish I had an answer to it short of bannable comments.

150 The thing Byrd has going for him is that everyone around him with power to do anything about it knows he's a panicky, incompetent moron.

They way that plays out is they feel a bit sorry for HIM that this happened. And since they know, and knew beforehand, that he was a panicky, incompetent moron, any blame he draws is a partial indictment of them for not doing anything about him. So, best to sweep it under the rug for all involved ... well except the dead woman, but nothing to be done for her now.

But there's nothing suspect there at all. That's the way insurgencies are halted. Chapter One, Page One.

If only there were some kind of objective record to determine what really happened. Some kind of audio/visual recording device to remove the human factor (faulty memories, deception, etc) and inform the appropriate authorities on specific details, so justice could be served.

Such a device could be mounted inside buildings, attached to law enforcement personnel, or even made available to the general public!

And don't come off any more bitter - we all are. That just gives the media ammo. There's more he can shit on Biden about than he's got time in a regular rally.

He's absolutely right. And I don't like that his impulse is to talk about Trump, not the people.

There is a time and place to litigate the last election. This election isn't that time. Get the RNC off their lazy asses, out to each legislature in in court fighting for election integrity instead of sitting of paying the same old consultants and undertaking the same failed strategies.

This election is too important to be about Trump or anyone else. It's about us. This garbage of the presidential candidate speaking about how the election was stolen is a recipe for failure. It will divide the people needed to win. Whatever Good Idea Fairy is telling him this is a winning tact should be taken out back and beaten with a garbage can lid.

181 I had this discussion with my son, since there's a diversity-hire judgette in DC who is sentencing people for more time than the prosecution is asking who stated that 1/6 was a "violent attempt to overthrow our government", that if there was a legit attempt at "storming" the capital, Babbit's murder means that people bring shields to the door, pick up those cordon stands and start chopping that door the fuck down.

You don't send a hoard to storm a castle, and one guy takes an arrow in the neck, so that's it, the storming is over.

We are so far removed from the primacy of yesterday that bullshitters can float complete crap stories of what is "storming".

Babbit would be a fallen warrior, like many who run through the breach first are. Followed by the hoards who would bludgeon Byrd to death with the cordon weights.

182 137 If Trump runs again, and I think he is, I think he will pivot away from The Great Election Steal. The whole damned place will be burning to the ground by '24. He's going to have a lot of agenda items to run on.

You gonna need a whole lot of Brasso to get the tarnish off the Trump brand. Might be possible but...

I was skeptical of the guy in 2016. Voted for him of course, because Hillary was a felon. But I figured we'd be getting a Rockefeller - urban liberal Republican dealmaker. Then he proceeded to say and do at least some of the right things far more aggressively than I expected.

But...once in office he proceeded to do far too few of the things he needed to do - like immediately blowing the kneecaps off Jim Comey and fifty of his BFFs - pour encourager les autres. He needed to instill fear, this was apparent and I was saying it loudly, here and elsewhere, from Election Day 2016 forward.

So I'm skeptical of the guy, for different reasons. It needs to be publicly about policy, and quietly about power, and he seems too capable of getting it backward.

Posted by: Madamemayhem (uppity wench) at October 14, 2021 03:49 PM (Vxu+H)

218 She was stepping through a broken window next to a door leading into the house, I think. She was inside the building already. Everyone misses the fact that the dickhead that actually broke the window was a pAntifa operative who was caught on video changing clothes in the stairwell after he broke the window. He was arrested later and immediately released with no charges.

227 Holy cow. Just read that article about Colorado now having a law that requires health insurers to pay for all sorts of shit for "transitioning" freak shows, as "essential care."

It's not just the so-called "transition" surgeries (cutting off penises and testicles, creating fake penises, putting in fake breasts, etc.). It goes way beyond that. Now it's the whole smorgasbord of cosmetic surgeries: cheek, nose, and chin implants; iip augmentation (usually done with collagen or fat), jawline enhancement or slimming, laser hair electrolysis, etc. Oh, and mental health counseling too, as if all the other shit wasn't bad enough.

Every tranny wannabe in the country is now going to move to Colorado so they can buy a month's worth of health insurance and then spend the next 5 or 10 years getting "free" plastic surgery to make them look more like Britney Spears or Brad Pitt.

Enjoy paying through the ass for this insanity, Colorado folks.

Reminds me of the Harvard retards that wrote a book called "How Democracies Die", and "scared" Anderson Cooper with the dire warnings about Trump.

"When we wrote How Democracies Die four years ago, we were worried about the Republican Party because they allowed Donald Trump to be elected. They sort of dropped the ball and failed to protect our democracy from an authoritarian demagogue. But we did not expect that the entire Republican Party would evolve into an anti-democratic force, and that's where they are today."

Nothing like "allowing" people to win elections to kill democracy.

But she got paid and the price for integrity continues to hit new lows. Actually, the price has sorta settled. They'll lie for free if they have to.

284 When I walked to and from school, uphill, both ways in the snow and something traumatic happened we just got on with life. Grief counseling for people that probably didn't even know the victim is a little much.

285 The economic collapse of the depression years was fresh in everyone's memory. It was called the Death of Capitalism.
As a matter of fact, FDR is credited with "saving capitalism", either with gratitude or with scorn, take your pick.

294 It's fine if it's part of a plank but vote for me because the last election was stolen from me isn't advancing the story forward. And given the ammo any conservative has right now, it's the least convincing argument possible, ESPECIALLY when Deathsantis continues to kick ass.

You can always write in DeSantis, or Santa Claus, if you are so inclined. But you'll get someone else - someone who is egotistical and thinks the election before was stolen from him, or the heirs to the third Reich.

Friends don't let friends google. I only do it (like today) to see just how biased their "algorithm" is, meaning it had to have human intervention because you know Rogan/Gupta is trending in a huge way. And screw Bing as well - I suppose if you have to... DuckDuckGo is ok, but leftists and still manipulate results.

I've had fantastic luck with Ecosia, better than Qwant by quite a bit. And their image search has no issues. Brave's search engine is still going through growing pains.

302 I unfollowed Chuck Ross on the Twits because he was calling Trump a poopyhead for talking about the election.

Said Trump got "trounced" and should "get over it."

Remember, when these people say Trump--or us--should get over the election, what they are really saying is, "let's not even LOOK at the election."

I think that they are deep down afraid that the truth will eventually come out.

One thing that Hitler and the Nazis got right early on, the Soviets were as stupid as dirt - same ruthless ideas of how to run things, just a whole lot less understanding of how to do it efficiently. But there was a whole lot of them, a lot more than there were Nazis. And that, along with the typical misery associated with every Russian winter, sank them.

I got a little bit of that vibe too, but I passed it off as him living in Europe for an extended period...going native as it were. In the afterword from the 1990 edition he didn't seem socialist anymore to me and he had interesting observations and worries about the future.

315 Re Trump and stolen election...that's what I call a big F'n deal. Yeah, it was stolen, blatantly so. That should be, IMHO, a centerpiece of any campaign by ANY Republican nominee, and how he/she is going to correct that, make sure it never happens again, and bring the perps to justice.

A huge block of the best people in the elites were pro Facsist or Pro Communist - the "trains run on time" for Mussolini was coined by one such. When Hitler invaded the USSR they had to chose a side, most choosing the USSR.
