The attorney for the family of Ashli Babbitt, Terry Roberts, appeared on Newsmax Monday and said he his handling a civil action that will be filed, saying, “The family and I were disappointed in the Department of Justice decision on this but my role really is to bring civil action and in that way vindicate her rights.”
Roberts said he and the family were disappointed in the DOJ decision to not identify the U.S. Capitol Police Officer who shot and killed Ashli, saying “We strongly disagree with the Justice Department’s decision on this. We think the evidence is ample and would support criminal charges against the officer.” Roberts went on to discuss how the officer never gave a warning, could see Babbitt was not armed, and that she did not pose an immediate threat. Roberts said the officer could have made an arrest and not used deadly force.
Roberts went on to discuss the double-standard in this case compared to other police shootings. Why? Because she was a Trump supporter.
