My initial impression after a cursory skim earlier today was that Hoft was over-selling it a little, something he’s wont to do now and then. But after checking back tonight, reading through the updates, and thinking the whole thing over…well, I dunno. Seems to me the case he makes is a lot more solid than I first thought.
I won’t bother with trying to excerpt the contention that the murderer’s identity has been confirmed; you can click on over and peruse the entire post for that, and you should. The part I’ll content myself with mentioning is at the very top:
Ashli Babbitt‘s husband Aaron Babbitt and Attorney Terrell Roberts joined Tucker Carlson in mid-June to discuss the continued challenges they have had getting any information on her death or the identity of her government-employed killer.
During the discussion, Tucker Carlson asked Attorney Roberts about the report that Ashli’s shooter also left his loaded gun in a US Capitol restroom.
Tucker Carlson: Mr. Roberts, let me ask you, there are reports online, that’s incredible I don’t know if they’re true, that the Capitol Hill police officer who shot Ashli Babbitt, I’m not going to mention the name, was the same officer that left his loaded handgun in a public men’s room on the Capitol. Do you believe that is the officer, it seems like a very reckless person, who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt on January 6th?
Attorney Terrell Roberts: That’s my belief. That’s my belief.
As Jim points out, this jaw-dropping demonstration of malfeasant boobery was originally reported back in February 2019 by Roll Call. In combination with the photos of the careless fool muzzle-sweeping his Cap-Po colleagues, Congressmen, and everybody else within a ten mile radius repeatedly, his finger being firmly inserted into the trigger well the whole time, and other breaches of the most elementary firearm-safety rules—basics that are usually drummed into every shooter’s head from jump—the picture that emerges is of an incompetent, irresponsible, and just plain stupid diversity-quota hire who never should have been on any police force at all, anywhere, ever. Seriously, the guy makes Paul Blart, Mall Cop look like the very epitome of what a conscientious, capable peace officer ought to be.
From there, it ain’t exactly a big leap to imagine that the hapless Lieutenant Byrd gunned down poor Ashli out of sheer panic, no other reason. Obviously the dangerous schlub was confused, his situational-awareness jumbled, and his courage and professionalism wholly inadequate to the task the job required of him. Tested by the stress of an unusual moment, he reacted not like a steady, well-trained professional but like a frightened thug. He may not be entirely at fault for having been allowed into a position that far exceeded his abilities, I suppose. But that in no way absolves him for summarily executing an unarmed woman who his teammates clearly did not evaluate as a serious threat. For the heinous crime of trespassing, no less.
Since the two-tiered Amerikan “justice” system is such a joke, along with being under the protection of some of the most powerful forces in our tyrannical ruling junta, Lieutenant Byrd need never worry about being dealt his due and proper judgment in a real court of law; sadly, those are another thing we no longer have. The only semblance of justice he might ever face will be whatever Real Americans mete out themselves: doxxing, public harrassment, and just generally seeing to it that Byrd never enjoys another moment’s peace or good night’s sleep for the rest of days.
Not that I would ever suggest or encourage any of that, naturally. I would never do such a thing. That would be…y’know…wrong.
