"The actions of the USCP officers were heroic given the situation they faced, and I continue to have tremendous respect in the professionalism and dedication of the women and men of the United States Capitol Police."

https://www.usnews.com/news/national-news/articles/2021-01-07/capitol-police-chief-defends-response-to-pro-trump-mob-as-heroic

My view: There is nothing "heroic" about allowing allowing a terrorist attack at the US Capitol Building.

Capitol Police murdered an unarmed woman while she was surrounded by other officers.

The police have the obligation and duty to protect the US Capitol from terrorists. I support the USA and democracy, not terrorists who try to destroy the Capitol.

She and her thugs were trying to break through a door and get at congress. It's a miracle they weren't all shot dead.

Okay racist.

Us government should be considered a terrorist group. When they go to other countries to stablish "democracy" how you think the things happen?? The capitol riot is not the minimum actions that US government does in other countries. You deserve it!!
>>

They didn't get shot cause they were white right-wingers. If a bunch of black people had tried to invade the Capitol, cops would've emptied their guns on the crowd.
>>
>>763348
Do you often fantasize about killing minorities?
>>
>>763277
The one shitty video of the shooting looks like a bad shoot. There's nothing in the video showing she was armed and there were literally other cops behind her. And it's not clear who shot her.

But play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Her fellow Q-tards are claiming she's alive and she was a crisis actor.

7 months of riots - getting pelted by bricks, bottle of piss and big ass fireworks and the Portland cops shoot no one.

5 minutes in and some little girl pokes her head through a door and gets shot. Kinda sounds like capitol police were too used to just keeping tourists from wandering down the halls and retired while on active duty
>>

Are you in some alternate reality? For fucks sake, the whole reason those riots started was BECAUSE they shot someone.

Foreign countries whose police will fire warning shots even when someone is carrying a knife is based. It gives the person a chance to reconsider before the lethal shot is given. That's professional police conduct. You guys only justify the lethal force because it's someone you don't like who is getting shot up.
>>
>>763914
>she's breaking in the door now
>should we shoot her? or continue to ask her to stand down as we have been doing for the past 5 minutes of her breaking the door down?
you're a cuck.
>>
>>763918
They should have put away their guns and knelt in solidarity with her, you fucking fascist
>>
>>763918
I still stand on the point that a warning shot should've been issued. The situation wasn't that extreme where lethal force was necessary.
>>
>>763923
Why would they fire a warning shot and risk potentially endangering one of their own? Bullets have to go somewhere. She should’ve listened when she had a gun in her face while she was still trying to break open a federal door.
>>
>>763923
>The situation wasn't that extreme where lethal force was necessary.
She was storming the fucking capitol building, it was completely necessary. Besides, a warning shot in a building filled to the brim with people is likely to hit an innocent target rather than the person they're trying to prevent from entering.
>>
>>763923
the ghost of officer sicknick begs to differ.
>>
question is why and how did people walk into the capitol building with barely a threat from the law, when a month earlier at BLM nearly the entire army was called in?
>>
>>763926
How would they endanger one of their own? Don't the Capitol Police know the interior of that building very well?
>>763928
No idea who that is, but was officer sicknick shooting an unarmed woman who was busy trying to gain illegal entry into a room?
>>
>>763927
>She was storming the fucking capitol building
She was a mostly peaceful protestor, you fascist
>>
>>763927
Even before a shot ass given, did he even try to arrest her? Why did she in particular get shot and not the others? It looked like more than one of them was trying to gain entry.
>>
>>763891
>The one shitty video of the shooting

You need to see the other two videos. They have better angles and show the situation a lot better. It is quite clear that woman was breaching a secure area and the officer didn't shoot until she was actively crossing through the broken window. It was a good shot. Actually, it was a rare case of accuracy and restraint put in context with the many videos of beat cops mag dumping into people running away. One bullet, angled so nobody was behind her, shot while the perpetrator was in tbe act of the specific crime she was shot for. Her getting shot out of that window stopped the tide of rioters and held the line. It was more than a good shot, it was a great shot since it prevented more mayhem than it caused.
>>
>>763931
he was the DC cop who was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher by "unarmed protesters" during an event that "wasn't extreme"
>>
>>763937
You know the two situations are completely different. The cop who shot the woman wasn't being assaulted by her with a fire extinguisher.
>>763936
Can you post it?
>>
>>763932
>mostly peaceful

She was mostly free of bullets at the end of the day, so what's the issue?

>>
>>763938
it was the same situation - the angry mob attacking the capitol building on the 6th. the one that had a gallows set up outside.
>>
>>763914
When someone is breaking down the door, you don't know who they are or what they've got.

In hindsight, knowing that the life of the Vice President was not immediate in danger, yes, we can say that a warning shot should have been fired. But the officer in the room didn't know that. He only knew that a large armed mob which wanted to lynch the Vice President was breaking down the door.
>>
>>763940
She was trying to jump in, his gun was pointing at her; she still did it. Ok, that's new and I never saw this perspective. Maybe the cop thought if she got through, others would swarm in and they would lose control. Any /k/ fags here know what model pistol that is, and what type of ammo would likely be used for it? Hollowpoint? I don't condone the illegal trespassing at all, but I still wonder if perhaps a warning shot really could've been used and have been a effective deterrent before a lethal shot was given.
>>
>>763944
>warning shot

Law enforcement does not fire warning shots. Firearms are not to be used unless lethal force is applicable. When violent rioters are breaking into secure areas of government installations and you are charged with protecting the people and property within, you are justified in shooting someone in the chest as they are actively breaching your barricaded line of defense. Ashli Babbitt was a military veteran who knew better than to do what she did. Ashli Babbitt betrayed her oath to the Constitution by attempting the violent disruption of the legal process of government. Ashli Babbiitt died a traitor to her country, wrapped in the flag of a would be usurper. Her corpse should be dumped into the ocean near where they dropped bin Laden's.

>the right supports and passes "stand your ground" legislation in all States they control, where you have the legal right to kill anyone breaking in, armed or unarmed
>she was only breaking in, she dindu nuffin' to deserve getting shot
Can't get more hypocritical than that! Do you magatards even try to examine the inconsistencies in your thought before you spew it out?

>Do you magatards even try to examine the inconsistencies in your thought before you spew it out?
Not a magatard.

I'm fairly certain the guy was secret service, not police. If that's the case, I have even less sympathy for her. Cops may sperg out and may dump on civilians sometimes, but the secret service are specially trained and pretty much have a license to kill.
>>
>>763277
>MUH UNARMED WOMAN
First, she was with a violent mob attempting to break past a barricade to the VP's chamber after the crowd made their intentions to hang the VP abundantly clear.

Second, let's dispel the myth of "unarmed." She had a gigantic fucking backpack concealed by a Trump flag. What was in that backpack? Could have been one or several explosive devices. Could have been weapons. Could have been supplies for taking hostages. Don't fucking bring a giant backpack to a high security location if you don't want to be seen as a threat and serious risk. It's easy to say she was unarmed after an autopsy, but in the heat of the moment during a terrorist attack, someone with a large backpack trying to get past a barricade shouldn't be treated as anything other than a potential suicide bomber.

She attempted to scale through the first true hole made in the barricade while armed men were on the other side telling them to stay out. What did she expect was going to happen?

And finally, her EXACT JOB in her 14 years of Air Force service was a Security Control Airman. Her entire job was to defend high priority parts of Air Force bases. She very likely had the same fucking training as the man that killed her. She was a moron.
