“Stop! No! Don’t!”: Babbitt Tried to Stop Attack on Capitol Speaker’s Lobby, Video Analysis Suggests

Zero Hedge –

Authored by Joseph M. Hanneman via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

Ashli Babbitt desperately tried to prevent rioters from vandalizing the doors leading to the Speaker’s Lobby at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, even stepping between one troublemaker and police officers guarding the doors, a video analysis shows.

Frame-by-frame video evidence analyzed by The Epoch Times paints a vastly different picture of Babbitt’s actions than that portrayed in media accounts over the past year. News media regularly painted Babbitt as “violent,” a “rioter,” or an “insurrectionist” who was angrily trying to breach the Speaker’s Lobby.

Video clips appear to show she tried to prevent the attack, not join it.

Video shot by John Sullivan, also known as Jayden X, shows that Babbitt tried to stop the violence against the Speaker’s Lobby at least four times before she climbed into a broken window and was shot by U.S. Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd. At one point, she was so distressed at the violence, she was jumping up and down in frustration. more

  1. I guess an independent investigation into Ashli Babbitt’s death is too much to ask for. Byrd commits murder and walks away a hero.

  2. I find myself using the word “retribution” a lot lately. And that over blown security guard, Byrd, has one coming.

  3. I think that she was part of the crowd that had the Whitehouse under siege. I believe she gave a quick interview touting her military police background when denouncing the police tactics used to clear the rioters
