Here is a new video closeup of the shooter. He is wearing a suit, has closely cropped hair. Secret Service or private security? Watch him track her with his gun just before attempting a head shot. As it was, he missed and got her in the neck. She died.
Here is a composite of four different video angles:
What I don’t understand is why so many people think that this shooting was warranted. Since when is is okay for LEOs to shoot an unarmed person for breaking and entering/trespassing? The most common excuse I have seen is “they didn’t know if she was armed or not.”
Haven’t police all over the country been arrested and charged with murder for just this kind of thing?
Examples of what I am talking about. Here is someone who I won’t name over at CTH:
LEO knew the person breaking in was a veteran? Not that It matters either. What do you think will happen when you break into a place and climb through the window? Particularly when you’re part of a mob who has already broken in and are now trying to break into an inner room?
It’s tragic, it’s unfortunate, but it’s her own fault. Mourn her death certainly, but lionizing her is idiotic.
How does LEO know she’s unarmed? She was part of a mob who has breached the building and is now breaching an interior room. Apparently a person with bad intent is entering the room. It’s unreasonable to wait any longer to repel the attack.
I don’t like that she was shot, but it was not an unforeseeable consequence. What did she intend to accomplish? I don’t know. But what was accomplished? Congress had the excuse they wanted.
The Democrat’s SA was there to “borrow” Trumps crowd and use it for their own ends. I suspect she allowed herself to be led astray and become fodder for their scheme.
All I’m saying is look at from the point of view of those inside the building whose job it is to protect the occupants.
I don’t like that she was shot and died. Of course not. But I don’t see that it was a wrongful act by LEO. Now if she and the others remained outside the building and LEO started shooting that would be wrongful. But that didn’t happen. They broke into the building and are breaking into an interior room. Nothing good is going to happen. It’s entirely foreseeable that something bad is going to happen.
There are many similar examples from the Twitter and Facebook world. And these are “conservatives”, presumably.
The woman wasn’t even through the window when she was shot. The shooter was aiming at her BEFORE she tried to climb in.
That’s my take. What do you think?
