Ashli Babbitt Death – Video Footage Seen from a Different Perspective

Thanks to the narrative by members of Congress and the mainstream media, the video footage shot by a left-wing plant in the Jan 6 riot made shooting victim Ashli Babbitt out to be part of the “mob” of “insurrectionists.” But The Epoch Times did a frame-by-frame analysis of the footage and there may be a totally different answer to what happened on the day of her death. Their analysis shows that she may have been trying to prevent the attack, not join it.

Tayler Hansen, an independent journalist, was just feet away from Ashli that day.

“She served her country for 14 years. That’s just insane to me that they can actually get away with pushing this narrative,” Hansen said. “They’ve done that by suppressing first-hand witnesses like me.”…

“About five minutes prior to her getting shot and killed, all of those officers, Officer Yetter and the other officers in the hall, the MPD cops, they were all joking with her and laughing with her,” Hansen said. “They were having conversations and joking and laughing. Then not even five minutes later, Michael Byrd comes and executes her.”

Babbitt confronted rioter Zachary Alam, leaning in between him and one of the police officers guarding the doors. Alam turned away from Babbitt and punched a window to the side of the officer’s head. Babbitt winces just before Alam strikes the window with his right hand. He later uses a helmet to smash the tempered glass.

An audio analysis of video taken in the hallway reveals that Babbitt shouted, “Stop! No! Don’t! Wait!” according to her husband, Aaron Babbitt.

As Alam, the man who broke the window, knocked his glasses and had to fiddle with them, the CERT team (Containment Emergency Response Team) was coming up the stairs. The regular police officers that had previously laughed and joked with Ashli suddenly left. As people pressed against her, she was shoved into a corner. Her husband believes she was then in fear for her life and needed a way out, which may be why she tried to climb through the window. Hansen and the leftist who filmed her death immediately tried to warn everyone that Michael Byrd, the person who shot her, had a gun. But the noise drowned out their words. Ashli Babbitt never made it all the way through the window.

Lt Michael Byrd was not interviewed, because he declined to do so without an attorney. Some witnesses said that he was teary-eyed and visibly upset after he shot Ashli Babbitt. Not everyone believes it.

He did not give a statement to the Internal Affairs Division of the Metropolitan Police Department, which was charged with conducting the investigation after the shooting, and which the U.S. Attorney relied upon to reach his decision not to charge.

The lead investigator brought Byrd in to question him and Byrd declined,” Roberts said. “He wanted a lawyer present. That means the investigator’s not going to talk to him at that point. It could mean that later, the investigator could approach Byrd and say, ‘Let’s get your lawyer down here and let’s ask you questions.’ That never happened.”

Self-defense normally must contain certain criteria. That criteria does not appear to be present in the shooting of Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt. Jan 6 was a chaotic mess with too many people in confined spaces when one woman appeared to attempt to breach a chamber. But she was unarmed, and had actually tried to stop the man who broke that window. The leftist news media has smeared her through multiple narratives that have attempted to make her look like an extremist. By extension, they have implied that veterans, many of whom were present that day, are also extremists, and the witch hunt is on with no end in sight.
