Capitol Police Officer Says He 'Saved Countless Lives,' 'Showed The Utmost Courage' By Executing Unarmed Air Force Vet Ashli Babbitt


Capitol Police officer Lt Michael Byrd praised himself during an interview with NBC News released on Thursday for showing "the utmost courage" and "saving countless lives" by executing unarmed 14-year Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol Building on Jan 6.

From The Daily Mail:
The Capitol police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt during the January 6 Capitol riot said his actions showed 'utmost courage' and that he 'saved countless lives.'

Speaking hours after he was publicly identified for the first time, Lt Michael Byrd went on the defensive during an interview with NBC News star Lester Holt Thursday.


Explaining his decision to finally come forward, Byrd - a 28-year veteran of the force - said: 'I showed the utmost courage on January 6, and its time for me to do that now.'

Referring to the 60 to 80 members of Congress trapped by the riot, he added : 'I know that day I saved countless lives.

'I know members of Congress, as well as my fellow officers and staff, were in jeopardy and in serious danger. And that's my job,' Lt. Byrd said.

Wow, what heroism!

Babbitt was an unarmed 5'2" woman who weighed 118 pounds.

Not even one member of Congress was assaulted or hurt physically at any point during the mostly-peaceful protest on Jan 6.

No other officer shot any of the other protesters, many of which were involved in far more violent scuffles with police. There was a large heavily-armed squad of police nearly right behind Babbitt when Byrd shot...

If that, in fact, is him...he has an address, he has family. Someone who had something to say might want to look into those. For entertainment purposes only, of course.

Byrd; A real, thorough investigation by a grand jury is demanded, not the political charade conducted by Biden and Pelosi's political stooges.
His action was murder of a veteran who served her Country honorably.
This is NOT political, it is about JUSTICE, if ---- it still exists in this Country.
Ashli Babbitt deserves better than what has happened.
Even the drugged up, criminal, scumbag George Floyd was treated better.

And he has to say so himself, because no one else in their right mind would say such a thing. What a worthless self-serving POS. I think someone needs to do a thorough dig through his past and see if there is any partisan biases in his background like there was in that other worthless POS that testified at Pelosi's clown circus committee hearing about 1/6.

Exactly, who was his political sponsor to get the job, get promoted and who is protecting this murderer now.

Ashli Babbitt was executed. Nobody in Washington does anything without approval. Who gave the orders ?

Fall guy. This is the guy who did it.

You never hear a decorated soldiers say he showed the utmost courage. He says he was just doing his job.

It's like the lying dogfaced pony soldier telling people who criticize him his IQ is higher.
