Well the video clearly shows three police officers in front of the door holding some of the protesters back, it didn't look to me like they were afraid for their lives but then it looks like they just stepped aside, didn't see any bulging eyes or neck veins popping out or any other signs of extreme excitement, I also I see a pair arms holding what appears to be a weapon being held with heavily gloved hands and then the weapon goes off. What kind of training didn't the Capital Police get that they couldn't have taken Ashli Babbitt (due to her size) down by hand being she wasn't armed. Why didn't the other officers pull her aside and take her back pack, they certainly had plenty of opportunity to so? So who gave the command to use deadly force when no hand guns, rifles, clubs or bats were observed anywhere inside the Capital. The Capital Police aren't very good at hand to hand combat it appears. I hope this Lt. Byrd wasn't in the military. IMO Ashli Babbitt was murdered by exactly what she was protesting about. Eventually the wheels will come of the Capital Police BS cart and the truth will come out.
One question for those of you who have used hand guns: How can you tell how much pressure you are applying to the trigger of your weapon when you have heavy gloves on and extremely excited to boot?
Also I don't support the protesters actions of that day and Ashli Babbitt died for no good reason just like George Floyd died for no good reason. I know some of you won't like my opinion but it is what it is.
