Anything even remotely connected to the events of January 6th has been sketchy in how they’ve been handled… including the forfeiture of certain rights.

Bank of America, for example, handed over customer information without a warrant.

The media lied to us about how Officer Swetnick died, leveraging public outrage against the (supposed) bludgeoning of a police officer to push their Violent Insurrection narrative, and Impeachment 2.0.

The only person to die as a result of specific acts of violence that day was Ashli Babbitt herself. Last we checked, that specific act of aggression was not initiated by any of the pro-Trump marchers who are so often characterized as being a violent mob.

Now, the family of Ashli Babbitt is formally alleging that her rights were violated as she — unarmed, unwarned, and posing no imminent threat to anybody — was shot dead by her own government.

No charges were filed against the officer who shot her. While the family’s lawyer, Terry Roberts, is disappointed with that decision, but feels his role in civil action can help vindicate her rights.

Still, Roberts argues there is enough evidence to put forward criminal charges against the officer who shot Babbitt – a military veteran from Lakeside, Calif., who was 35 at the time of her death.

“Clearly, the officer had the required willfulness,” Roberts said. “He clearly could see that she was not armed, she did not present an immediate threat to him, and there was no legal justification for shooting her.”

Roberts argues that the officer did not warn Babbitt, who was trying to enter the Speaker’s Lobby just off the House floor, before shooting her and that the officer should have been charged.

The family says the yet-to-be-filed case will allege a violation of Babbitt’s constitutional rights. —JustTheNews
