Since the other side had no firearms there wasn't much to discuss at to who would shoot first.I don't think it's cut and dried, that large violent mob was very dangerous, whether or not they shot first. At some point you either give up
and let them have control of the building, and potentially anyone they want to , say, hang by the neck, or you fight back. If the building were
abandoned, then yeah maybe letting the mob have it would be a good move, but if there are people inside still who might be attacked and
beaten or killed, then you have to at some point deter the mob.
In my opinion, having them find and hang Mike Pence would have been poetic justice, but he had fled at some point.
So they’re concluding that he reasonably believed shooting her was necessary in self-defense?"Specifically, the investigation revealed no evidence to establish that, at the time the officer fired a single shot at Ms. Babbitt, the officer did not reasonably believe that it was necessary to do so in self-defense or in defense of the Members of Congress and others evacuating the House Chamber," prosecutors said.
What’s the expression around here?Capitol riot: Police officer won't face charges in fatal shooting of Ashli Babbitt, prosecutors say
It's ok though, they investigated themselves and offered condolences to the family.
At this point the family needs to lawyer up and get a real investigation started and the truth will start to filter out.
