Ashli Babbit’s Killer is a Dangerous Incompetent

A picture is worth a thousand words. So these two pictures tell you two thousand words worth of Ashley Babbit’s. He is demonstrably incompetent.

There are four critical rules for handling any firearm, especially a pistol:

Treat every gun as if it is loaded until you inspect it to ensure there is no ammunition in the chamber.

Always point the gun in a safe direction (in other words, do not point the gun at anything or anyone you are not prepared to kill or destroy).

ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire.

Know your target and what is beyond. You do not fire at a target if there is a person or persons behind the target that do not pose a threat.

Look at the big picture. This moron has his finger on the trigger and is pointing his gun at other security personnel. He is violating all of the gun rules listed above. Every single one.

Making matters worse is what he is doing with his left hand. He is carrying something. When you have the finger of your right hand on the trigger and you are simultaneously using your left hand to grasp or hold something you are likely to cause a sympathetic movement with your trigger finger. The man in the blue shirt is damn fortunate that he was not shot in the back by this clown.

The lack of training discipline this man exhibits is alarming. And the results of this incompetence was the murder of Ashli Babbit. If a cop on the street in any city in America handled a pistol like this he or she would have their gun taken away and be sent back to training. Making matters worse–he took an innocent life.

Ashli Babbitt’s Family Sues to Learn Identity of Officer Who Shot Her

Ashli Babbitt’s Family Sues to Learn Identity of Officer Who Shot Her

By Zachary Stieber

June 5, 2021

The Metropolitan Police Department is being sued by the family of Ashli Babbitt to learn the identity of the law enforcement officer who fatally shot her in Washington on Jan. 6.

In a 7-page document filed this week in District of Columbia court, relative Aaron Babbitt asked a judge to compel the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), Washington’s police force, to search for and hand over records he asked for in a Freedom of Information Act request.

The records include video footage of the shooting of Ashli Babbitt inside the U.S. Capitol, documents that identify the officer who shot her, and police training records of said officer.

The plaintiff submitted the request on April 21 and the MPD acknowledged receipt on the same day, according to the lawsuit. But as of June 4, the department has failed to produce the requested records or demonstrate that they are lawfully exempt from production.

Under Washington code, the MPD was required to do one or the other within 15 business days, or by May 12.

Alleging a violation of the Freedom of Information Act, Aaron Babbitt is asking the court through his lawyer, Terrell Roberts, to order MPD to conduct searches for all of the records requested and order the defendants to produce by a certain date all non-exempt records, as well as blocking the police agency from continuing to withhold the records.

The lawsuit should be merged with a similar action filed by the watchdog group Judicial Watch, the filing states.

The MPD, the U.S. Capitol Police, and the law group representing the officer who shot Babbitt did not return requests for comment.

The officer who killed Babbitt works for the U.S. Capitol Police, according to federal officials. The Department of Justice in April said prosecutors decided not to pursue charges against the officer because officials “determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution.”

There is no timeline as of now for bringing the lawsuit asserting constitutional violations.

A scheduling conference in the new lawsuit is slated to take place on September 3, according to court records. Superior Court Judge Florence Pan is scheduled to hear the case.

The officer through his attorneys has defended his actions, which were captured on video footage in the chaos that ensued when various groups stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6. The officer claims he shouted at Babbitt, who was attempting to climb through a broken window into the Speaker’s Lobby, adjacent to the House chamber, to stop, but Roberts has alleged there is no evidence of that happening.

The new action is part of an effort to collect records before filing a lawsuit asserting the officer violated Babbitt’s constitutional rights, Roberts told The Epoch Times.

“It’s commonly done in cases like this where you can get access to police records and things like that through FOIA actions,” he said.

“The complication here is that the Capitol Police are not subject to FOIA. However, they used the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia to conduct their investigation. In other words, the United States Attorney’s Office did a criminal investigation and relied upon the Metropolitan Police Department to conduct their factual investigation. And so now that they’ve decided against bringing charges I am going to seek any kind of records that they may have collected in their investigation, including any records which identify the officer.”

Prosecutors seek to drop first Capitol riot case because there is no evidence that the suspect broke any laws

Prosecutors seek to drop first Capitol riot case

The case against Christopher Kelly of New York City is the first of nearly 500 stemming from the Capitol to collapse for lack of evidence.

By Pete Williams

June 1, 2021

Federal prosecutors told a federal judge Tuesday that they intend to drop a Capitol riot case against a New York man accused of having been inside the Capitol during the siege in January.

It is the first of the nearly 500 Capitol riot cases to collapse for lack of evidence.

The man, Christopher Kelly of New York City, was arrested Jan. 20 after the FBI said a paid confidential informant told agents that Kelly was posting material on a Facebook Messenger app about the riot and his plans to be in Washington on Jan. 6. The informant said a photo taken inside the Capitol was also posted, according to the FBI.

In the charging documents filed in court, an FBI agent said, “I believe the messages and image … reflect that Chris Kelly was using this account to inform associates that he had breached the Capitol and was inside.”

The court document accompanying the charges included photos that the FBI said showed Kelly on the Capitol grounds, but they did not include any further indication that he entered the building.

Other riot cases have included data from cellphone service providers indicating that defendants’ phones were inside the building. This case did not. Nor did it include any photos of Kelly himself inside the Capitol or offer any direct proof that he was among the rioters.

In seeking to drop the case Tuesday, a prosecutor wrote that, “upon reflection of the facts currently known to the government, the government believes dismissal … serves the interest of justice.” The motion to dismiss said the government and defense counsel “have discussed the merits of the case.”

Kelly’s attorney, Edward MacMahon Jr. of Middleburg, Virginia, had no comment.

FBI Mocked For Using Lewd Photoshopped Image In Criminal Complaint Of Capitol Riot

FBI Mocked For Using Lewd Photoshopped Image In Criminal Complaint Of Capitol Riot

February 12, 2021

The FBI appears to have used a photoshopped image from the Capitol riot as evidence in an arrest warrant for Brian P. McCreary, The Daily Mail reported.

The doctored image replaces a 19th-century painting of a Kentucky senator with the lewd meme called “Wood Sitting on a Bed,” which portrays a nude man exposing his genitals. According to the publication, the viral internet image is known for its shock value and is often sent to unsuspecting recipients without context.

The mistake was acknowledged and mocked by many on social media.

“This is unreal! The people working in the FBI must be idiots,” one user tweeted.

Seamus Hughes, the deputy director of the Program on Extremism at George Washington University, suggested the mistake was not a common one.

“I’ve studied extremism for 15 years, I’ve reviewed mostly every court record for decades,” he tweeted.

According to The Daily Mail, the image went sent to the FBI by one of McCreary’s co-workers. Nevertheless, the meme appears to have slipped past investigators before it made it to the Wednesday warrant filed by special agent Emily Eckert.

The image is one piece of evidence that shows McCreary’s involvement in the Capitol riots on January 6. The picture shows McCreary behind the notorious QAnon Shaman Jake Angeli, who is leading a group of men as they stand in the halls of the historic United States building. Per Global News, Angeli is currently in jail and was moved from Washington to Virginia on Thursday after a federal judge ordered that he receive organic food as long as he’s in custody. Previously, Angeli refused to eat food that was not organic.

According to the FBI, McCreary was arrested and charged with three counts of violent entry, two counts of illegal entry, and disorderly conduct.

“McCreary told the FBI he traveled to D.C. to attend Donald Trump’s rally on the National Mall because he was upset that an audit had not been carried out into voter fraud,” The Daily Mail reported.

Others, including the infamous QAnon Shaman, are arguing they were tricked into storming the U.S. Capitol by former President Donald Trump, who spoke at the nearby Stop the Steal rally held shortly before the riots. The former president is notably also facing scrutiny for possible incitement of violence.

After defending massive numbers of left wing riots for much of 2020, the hypocritical left is now upset about one right wing riot in 2021

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

February 11, 2021

In my opinion, left wing criminals and right wing criminals should be held to the same standard.

In my opinion, anyone, whether they are on the left or on the right, who smashes windows, commits arson, damages or destroys someone else’s property, commits assault, commits murder, or commits insurrection, should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

But that’s not how those on the left feel.

Those on the left have a huge double standard when it comes to wanting to prosecute people who commit these kinds of crimes.

For about half of last year, left wing rioters burned down city after city, destroyed many small businesses, turned neighborhoods into food deserts, murdered more than a dozen people, caused half a billion dollars of damage in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, and declared that part of Seattle was an autonomous zone that was independent from the rest of the country. The mayors of these cities allowed, praised, and even encouraged many of these illegal activities. Charges against many rioters were dropped. Many other rioters had their bail paid for by left wing supporters, including the current Vice-President of the U.S.

But now that one right wing riot happens, where far less damage was caused, and far fewer people were murdered, the left is all of a sudden acting like they think rioting is now a bad thing.

This hypocrisy sucks.

Does Ashli Babbitt’s blood pattern look real or fake? For a fatal neck shot, why is there so little blood, and no spraying or spattering? Skip to 14:19 in this video to see for yourself.

Usually, when a police officer shoots and kills an unarmed person, the name of the police officer is reported by the media, the result of the autopsy is reported by the media, and the date and location of the funeral are reported by the media.

But with Ashli Babbitt, none of those three things have been reported in this case, even though it’s been more than a month since she was killed.

Why is that?

I just watched this entire 21 minute analysis of the shooting. The guy makes a good case that the entire thing was staged.

I’m not saying he’s right. I’m not saying he’s wrong.

If he is right, it would explain why there haven’t been any news reports about the name of the shooter, the autopsy, or the funeral.

Democrats donate to legal defense fund for Capitol rioter

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/north-dakota-republicans-blast-democrats-for-donating-to-man-accused-of-vandalizing-gop-senator-s-office/ar-BB1cWqsU

North Dakota Republicans blast Democrats for donating to man accused of vandalizing GOP senator’s office

January 20, 2021

North Dakota Republicans have an ax to grind with their Democratic counterparts after local officials supported a man accused of vandalizing a U.S. senator’s office.

A GoFundMe page, reported by the local Jamestown Sun, shows North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party Chairwoman Kylie Oversen, party official Ellie Shockley, and 2012 lieutenant gubernatorial contender Ellen Chaffee contributed donations to Thomas Alexander Starks, for whom a legal defense fund was opened after he was charged for allegedly using an ax to destroy the windows and intercom systems of Sen. John Hoeven’s office on Dec. 21. The 30-year-old faces up to five years in prison if convicted of the Class C felony charge of criminal mischief.

A statement issued by the North Dakota Republican Party this month named Oversen, claiming that such donations were tantamount to endorsing politically charged crime.

“It is inexcusable that Chairwoman Overson [sic] would be personally involved in supporting a far-left extremist whose violent actions constitute an assault on our democracy,” Chairman Rick Berg said on Jan. 6. “Video evidence leaves little in doubt about this attack, so it is unfathomable why ND Dem-NPL officials would lend their name and financial support to a man they refer to as ‘innocent.'” Oversen released a statement defending her $100 contribution to the cause, arguing that Starks is entitled to a robust legal defense.

“I firmly believe that everyone, no matter their socioeconomic status, deserves a full and rigorous defense when accused of a crime,” she said. “I plainly and resolutely condemn violence, including against elected officials and public property. My donation does not reflect my views on the incident.”

Shockley and Chaffee also contributed small amounts, donating $500 and $100, respectively.

Starks’s preliminary hearing is set for Thursday. Representatives for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party and Hoeven did not immediately reply to a request for comment. The North Dakota Democratic-Nonpartisan League Party is the North Dakota affiliate of the national Democratic Party, the result of a merger between the Nonpartisan League and the Democratic Party in North Dakota.

According to mainstream news sources, at least two of the people arrested at the Capitol riot are left wing activists

By Daniel Alman (aka Dan from Squirrel Hill)

January 14, 2021

Associated Press reported:

NYC man arrested on Capitol riot charges freed on $100K bond

January 12, 2021

NEW YORK (AP) — The son of a New York City judge who was arrested by the FBI on charges that he was among the protesters who stormed the U.S. Capitol was ordered Tuesday by a different judge to stay away from Washington.

Aaron Mostofsky, 34, was picked up at his brother’s home in Brooklyn on Tuesday morning, about a week after he was seen inside the Capitol wearing a fur costume and a police vest he is accused of stealing during the mayhem.

The charges include a felony count of theft of government property — a bulletproof police vest worth $1,905 and a riot shield valued at $265.

Records show Aaron Mostofsky is a registered Democrat.

KTVX, the ABC television affiliate in Salt Lake City, Utah, reported:

Utah activist who provided video of deadly D.C. riot to investigators arrested

January 14, 2021

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – A Utah activist is facing charges for his alleged involvement in the deadly U.S. Capitol protest last week.

The Tooele County Sheriff’s Office tells ABC4’s Jason Nguyen that John Sullivan has been booked into their custody under a U.S. Marshall’s warrant. 

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Sullivan has been charged with entering a restricted building or grounds without authority; civil disorders; and violent entry or disorderly conduct.

The criminal complaint filed against Sullivan lists him as the “leader of an organization called Insurgence USA through which he organizes protests.”

He was arrested in June in connection to riots in Provo and charged with 3rd-degree felony riot and criminal mischief. In July, officials say Sullivan was charged with rioting and criminal mischief for the Provo riots.

Federal investigators say they obtained a video posted on YouTube of Sullivan allegedly seen in the crowd, telling those around him over a microphone “we got to rip Trump out of office” and “we ain’t waiting until the next election.” He was also seen wearing a ballistic vest and a gas mask.
