Prosecutors Will Not Charge Capitol Police Officer in Death of Ashli Babbitt

An investigation conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia determined “that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution,” the department said in a statement.

Authorities had considered for months whether criminal charges were appropriate for the Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt, 35, an Air Force veteran from San Diego. The Justice Department’s decision, though expected, officially closes out the investigation.

Prosecutors said they had reviewed video of the shooting, along with statements from the officer involved and other officers and witnesses, examined physical evidence from the scene and reviewed the autopsy results.

Not only are there no charges against the officer who clearly murdered Ashli Babbitt, his name is not even made public.

    I hope the Babbitt legal team intends to bring civil charges against that killer, but it isn’t clear in their press release. If they need $$ to do it, I will donate.
    Also, I remember seeing somewhere (Gab?) that his name was released. Will have to research.
