Jonathan Turley’s nickname should be “Eagle Eye”, because he’s very spot-on and detail-oriented. The virtues of a truly good lawyer.

After hiding for 8 long and exhausting months, shameful for a man of his rang, Asli Babbitt’s murder came out online TV, giving out an interview for MSNBC, speaking about the events of the dark January 6, but from his “defending” perspective, of course.
Here’s what Jonathan Turley said as a reply to Byrd’s statement:
“I have long expressed doubt over the Babbitt shooting, which directly contradicted standards on the use of lethal force by law enforcement. But what was breathtaking about Byrd’s interview was that he confirmed the worst suspicions about the shooting …”
“…Of all of the lines from Byrd, this one stands out: “I could not fully see her hands or what was in the backpack or what the intentions are.” So, Byrd admitted he did not see a weapon or an immediate threat from Babbitt beyond her trying to enter through the window…”
“…No other officers facing similar threats shot anyone in any other part of the Capitol, even those who were attacked by rioters armed with clubs or other objects. Under Byrd’s interpretation, hundreds of rioters could have been gunned down on Jan. 6.”

I really hope that the attorneys representing the mourning family of young Ashli Babbitt involve in this case deeper and more personally, to really get back to reckless and ignoring shooter Byrd, who had the nerves to give such a statement!
