And then somebody said, "don't worry, brother, we'll take care of you. Nice shot."

He should feel bad. But don't kill yourself, officer. You need to live a long life paying back that which you cravenly stole.

"...she was at the front of a mob trying to climb through a shattered glass door." Lies, twisted truth, and more lies. Typical leftist propaganda. And the common Democrat laps it up. She just got up in the door because she just wanted a look. The "mob" was milling around. Some other cops were standing around near her on her side of the door. Byrd murdered her, apparently because he's a dumb sh**head. And he's being protected to protect their warped narrative.

Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd, of the Capitol Police force, panicked and shot and killed Ashli Babbitt. The Deep State Swamp did everything they could to hide his identity, for a while, and has greatly assisted in covering up his murderous act. Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd and Nancy "Witch" Pelosi are hiding additional relevant information from the American public. They do not want you, or anyone, to know about it.

For being a highly trained and tenured cop, being teary eyed, when you thought you did the right thing, just doesn't hold water. This was murder. I wonder if superiors told them that there might be trouble?

Are we supposed to feel sorry for him? Really!! There was NO REASON to shoot that young woman. None. I doubt seriously she was trying to climb through anything. Do we know for sure he did the shooting or was he just the one they thought could garner a bit of sympathy because he's not that bright. He ended the life of a lovely young woman. There's no coming back from that.

I think Pelosi just wanted a dead body to warrant her little 1/6 commission and all the other BS the Dems and their "little helpers" are pushing. Ashli Babbitt just happened to be the one they took out using a man that knew he was committing a political murder.

Total BS. If he was behaving as trained and did what was right he shouldn’t have such qualms. He must have know he did wrong. Why? And as far as being at the front of the mob, i didn’t see much effort on the part of the Capital Police to control the crowd. They seemed to be welcomed by the police.

Was anyone brandishing a fire arm? Was the person who was shot and killed armed? Was she posing a threat to anyone? If she was doing something illegal, fine. Charge her for the crime or misdemeanor and let her have her day in court. But why kill her? She was no threat. I still say we'd be better off sending every member of Congress along with every member of the Biden administration to Afghanistan in exchange for any American left behind as well as any Afghan who assisted America and her allies. We can always find more idiots to fill the halls of the Capitol Building. And perhaps they won't be as corrupt as the ones we have now. We cannot, however, replace the souls that Biden -- "Let's go, Brandon!" -- behind.

Amazing he is the only person who thought it was necessary to pull out a gun. No one else did. And the protestors were not armed. And the disgraceful Capitol police knew this.

He's in the wrong line of work if he goes wobbly during the event and can't keep his stuff together ntil things are over. FTA: "Kyle DeFreytag, 26, Howard Liebengood, 51, Jeffrey Smith, 35, and Gunther Hashida, 43, have all killed themselves in the months following the storming of the governmental building." Are we supposed to believe that this event, the unarmed "storming" of the capitol imparted such fear and PTSD that such a high proportion of those involved committed suicide? I'll have to ask my friend who was on Hamburger Hill how many of his fellow survivors offed themselves. Am I supposed to believe Ashli Babbitt was more frightening than the NVA charging up the hill spraying 7.62 mm hail from AK47's? Theory 1) They knew too much and were not trusted to keep quiet Theory 2) They knew they were on the wrong side and people on the side of right got killed Theory 3) They were scared spitless by Ashli Babbitt and an idiot in a historically incorrect Viking suit. I can only eliminate one of those because it's simply preposterous.

"When sorrows come," said King Claudius, "they come not single spies but in battalions." As the king found out. So it seems with President Joe Biden, who must be asking himself the question Merle Haggard asked:"Are the good times really over for good?"Consider the critical issue with voters today: the state of the economy.Inflation in September stood at 5.4% year on year.With prices of food and fuel rising, the supply chains for goods entering the country and headed for stores, shelves and showrooms before Thanksgiving and Christmas are clogged. Container ships are backed up in ports, waiting to unload on both coasts.
