Internal Probe Clears the Capitol Police Officer for Shooting at Ashli Babbitt
July 6, a black day for the U.S. democracy when a mob tried to overturn the 2020 presidential election result.
During the course of this event, a Capitol Police officer was forced to shot down an unarmed army veteran Ashli Babbitt.
On the day of the Capitol Hill attack, trump supporters including Babbitt tried to barge in through a door. She was then shot down by a capitol hill officer on her right shoulder.
Now, almost 6 months after the attack, the unnamed officer has been exonerated after an internal inquiry.
Even earlier in April 2021, the Justice Department announced no charges to be brought against the officer as no evidence was found that proves whether he had violated any federal laws or not.
After the Jan. 6 incident, Officials examined the video footage posted on various social media outlets but could not find anything about him.

Now, the final decision by internal investigation wraps up everything going into the incident.
The latest findings were first reported by NBC News as they got their hands on a memo from Capitol Police’s Office of Personal Responsibility saying “No further action will be taken in this matter.”
In case, you haven’t read or heard of this before, Babbitt was an Air Force veteran. She served the Air Force in multiple Middle East tours from 2004 to 2016.
In the past few years, her social media posts clearly indicate her as a passionate follower of former President Donal Trump, QAnon Conspiracy Theory movement.
Ever since Babbitt’s death, the far right-wing had been calling it unjust killing. Therefore trying their best to downplaying the violence that happened during the capitol hill attack.
That’s all for now.
