Who are Ashli Babbitt's parents? Family says Capitol cop killed her without warning
Ashli Babbitt's family alleged that the officer who killed her gave her no verbal command or warning before pulling the trigger
The family of Capitol rioter, Ashli Babbitt, who was shot dead in the Rotunda, during the January 6 insurrection by the capitol police, are planning to sue the Capitol police for her wrongful death for $10 million. The family alleged that the officer who killed Ashli gave her no verbal command or warning before pulling the trigger. Ashli was among the thousands of Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol but was the only one to be killed by the cops.
Ashli Babbitt's family stated that the video of the incident proves that the plain-clothed officer who shot her did not give a verbal command or a warning and that the US Capitol Police is liable for her death. Ashli's family then said that they will sue for her 'wrongful death' and are seeking $10million in damages. Ashli Babbitt's family's attorney Terry Roberts said, "It’s not debatable. There was no warning. I would call what he did an ambush. I don’t think he’s a good officer. I think he’s reckless."
Speaking of the 'video proof' Terry Roberts further said, "If he’s yelling, they certainly aren’t showing any reaction to it. If he was giving any kind of warning, why didn’t they react?" The cop who shot Ashi has not been named. An attorney for him stated that the officer did "issue verbal commands but that they weren't audible on the video because he was wearing a mask". The officer's lawyer, Mark Schamel said, "It’s a false narrative that he issued no verbal commands or warnings. He was screaming, 'Stay back! Stay back! Don’t come in here!' He was acting within his training. Lethal force is appropriate if the situation puts you or others in fear of imminent bodily harm. There should be a training video on how he handled that situation. What he did was unbelievable heroism."
