(Tea Party PAC) – It is no small thing when an unarmed American citizen is shot dead by police.
Regardless of the color of their skin, their class or their creed, it is shocking for a member of law enforcement to open fire on a of the public that law enforcement is sworn to protect is shot dead when they are unequivocally not engaged in a violent act that directly threatens the lives of another human being.
It is truly sickening to see the entirely selective outrage and calls for justice when it comes to the fatal shooting of unarmed civilians, and none more so than the case of Ashli Babbit, who was shot and killed at the Capitol Building amid Wednesday’s chaos and we have yet to have even a hint of an answer as to why this was the case.
Whether or not one chooses to defend the illegal actions of Trump supporters (and likely far-left radicals in disguise) on Wednesday, the fact remains that Babbit, a 14-year veteran of the Air Force, was shot and killed while unarmed and posing no direct threat to human life.
This is an absolute moral outrage.

“The death of Air Force veteran Ashli Babbit at the hands of a Capitol Hill Police officer last Wednesday is either murder or manslaughter,” Larry Johnson writes for The Gateway Pundit.
He explains that to anyone who has taken a class for concealed carry permits would know that you can only use deadly force such as firing a weapon in order “to prevent the imminent and otherwise unavoidable danger of death or grave bodily harm to yourself or a bystander.”
“Ashli Babbit did not have a weapon of any kind in hand or on her person. She was not assaulting the officer. Yet the officer fired. No excuse under the circumstances visible on the video of the incident,” he states.
“It is possible that the guilty officer (yes, he’s guilty of shooting an unarmed person, that’s a fact) will be charged with involuntary manslaughter–i.e., he stupidly put his finger on the trigger and fired accidentally,” Johnson continues.
“Maybe he did not mean to do it, but under the law if you fire a gun you are responsible for every single bullet. Ignorance nor carelessness are proper, acceptable excuses,” he explains.
If it was not an accident, however, Johnson states that this would most certainly be an incident of murder, which is a far more serious case.
He points to the past year’s “caterwauling” from Black Lives Matter about police brutality which juxtaposes very poorly with the murder of Babbit and the virtual radio silence from the mainstream media and the Democrats.
“Instead of outrage and further protests, silence has fallen over the Capitol accompanied by self-righteous hypocrisy streaming from cowardly politicians–Democrat and Republican–who label legitimate protestors as insurrectionists and insist that Ashli got her just deserts,” he also notes.
How the Washington establishment has reacted to the slaying of a veteran and young mother is simply one indication of the “craven corruption and moral rot that infests Washington, DC.”
“The Democrats, buoyed by a pliant media and rapacious corporations, are opting for Stalinist tactics as the President, along with many of his supporters, are banned from internet media and verbally assaulted. They have crossed a line and set in motion a push-back by the majority of voters who turned out for Trump,” he also charges.
