On Saturday, February 13, the Babbitt family held a memorial service to honour Ashli Babbitt, the alleged Trump supporter who died on the day of the Capitol riots on January 6, 2021. The San Diego resident had travelled to Washington DC especially for the protests that resulted in the deaths of five people including Babbitt and a police officer.

After over a month since her death, the memorial service for the Air Force vet who served for 14 years held in Southern California saw her family, loved ones and dogs gather to bid their last farewell to her. But even as many got together to pay their respects, many took to social media to know the identity of the Capitol police officer who shot Babbitt.

Babbitt was one of the hundreds of MAGA supporters who had barged into the Capitol after Trump's allegedly volatile speech that 'incited' them to break the rules. According to The Gateway Pundit, those closest to her described her as "outgoing, loving, passionate, patriotic, and most of all, having an energy level that was out of this world. She was a go-getter, a powerful soul. When she set her mind to something she was going to achieve it, only to do it all over again but even better." Twitter account Justice for Ashli Babbitt described her as "a beloved wife, daughter, sister and friend".



 

A rally was carried out with the banner reading "Ashli Babbit, Forever in our hearts," with the American flag. Her parents wore a t-shirt that read, "In Loving Memory of Ashli Babbitt – All Gave Some. But She Gave Us Her All". The memorial service took place at Dog Beach, which Babbitt had once described as "the happiest place on Earth". Krista Clarke, a friend close to Babbitt reportedly said, "Ashli loved hard, lived hard, and loved her Country more than anyone I know! Gonna miss her so much!"

While right-wing and Trump supporters considered her a patriot and true hero, many thought she was collateral damage.

Once news broke out about her memorial, social media took time to pay respects, but they also questioned authorities about the Capitol officer who shot Babbitt dead. According to recent reports, the officer is not going to be charged for the death. "Ashli Babbitt served as a senior airman in the US Air Force from 2004 to 2008 under the name Ashli Elizabeth McEntee, according to military records... #PatriotsNotDie" one tweeted in her honor. 



 

"Wonder why we still don’t know who the Capitol Cop is who murdered #AshliBabbitt," one user wrote to know. "#MarxistCommunistDemocrats #AshliBabbitt Who shot Ashli Babbitt?" one said, adding, "You'd think that Nancy Pelosi would reveal the name and recommend the shooter/murderer for a Congressional Gold Medal. Security Guard steps forward to make sure he/she hits the target aimed at. That's intentional and nowhere near accidental misfire. Clearly it was murder."
