I’ve never heard of anyone being handcuffed for jaywalking…….until today.
Mikki Witthoeft, the mother of slain Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, was arrested outside U.S. Capitol Friday afternoon while protesting her daughter’s January 6 shooting death.
Witthoeft had reportedly conducted a memorial service for Ashli on the second anniversary of her death before she was arrested. The official charge was reportedly “jaywalking,” which is apparently rarely enforced in Washington D.C.
In April of 2021, a cursory investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia’s Public Corruption and Civil Rights Section and the Civil Rights Division, along with the Metropolitan Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division (IAD) “determined that there is insufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution” of Michael Byrd, the U.S. Capitol officer who fatally shot the unarmed Babbitt.
Video footage shows Byrd firing a single shot at the 35-year-old through a barricade at close range, without warning.
Prior to her arrest, Witthoeft had held a press conference on the grounds of the Capitol “to call attention to the Constitutional and human rights abuses taking place at the DC Detention Center where J6 prisoners are being held,” Human Events reported.
The press conference was initially scheduled to be held outside the DC detention center (also known as the D.C. Gulag) where the J6 defendants continue to be held in deplorable conditions.
“It has been awful. The phone call you never want to get,” said Witthoeft, who was wearing a red t-shirt with a photo of her daughter draped in the American flag in front of the Capitol. “Like I said my daughter was deployed four times and there were some days I was surprised not to get a call that something happened to her. But to know that she came to a Trump rally and was shot by her own government was just a completely shocking situation.”
The ordeal has radicalized Witthoeft, who now spends much of her time protesting the execution of her daughter. “I miss my little housewife life,” she told Human Events reporter Chris Barron. Her mission, according to Barron, is to “never let anyone forget Ashli’s life, or her death at the hands of the US government.”
“I had three different places tell me no, no, no, this is too controversial,” she told the reporter. “So even getting my child home and in a place of rest was difficult for me… they wouldn’t even let me bury my child… she was denied rendering of honors by the Air Force, despite being deployed four times and injured on her 21st birthday… she gave her youth, her ability to have a family and eventually her life for this country and they deny her the rendering of honors, so yeah I am pissed off.”
When asked about the oft-told lie that the only people who died on January 6th were five police officers, she replied: “The truth is that four American patriots died that day – my daughter, Roseanne Boyland, Kevin Greeson and Benjamin Philips died at the hands of the Capitol police that day.
I’m surprised their boy Leroy Byrd didn’t murder her as well.
Four Americans were murdered on 6 Jan 2020 by U.S. capitol police thugs; Benjamin Phillips, Kevin Greeson, Rosanne Boyland, and Ashli Babbitt.
Biden’s corrupt weaponized government goons have engaged in the systematic bashing of civil liberties using the 6 January protest as justification for their authoritarian reign of terror, and in some cases, murder.
Lila Morris, Harry Dunn, and Aquilino Gonell, are the capitol cops who brutally beat Rosanne Boyland to death. None of them were charged. Michael Leroy Byrd—the capitol cop who murdered Ashli Babbitt the same day—, is also walking around scot-free. Byrd was investigated in 2019 for leaving his service weapon laying unattended in a Capitol bathroom. The firearm was Byrd’s service Glock 22, the same style weapon that was reportedly used to murder Babbitt.
Prosecutors identified Jason Bagshaw as the animal who beat a woman with a baton nearly to death on Jan 6.
BTW: Capitol cops are spying on members of Congress and their constituents.
American political prisoners have been held for more almost a year in solitary confinement in 7X10 cells for 23 hours a day. These people have not been convicted of any crimes, they are being held in “pretrial detention” for trespassing the capitol halls of corruption on 6 January 2021. Their trials have not been set. They have been denied bail. They are not allowed to meet with lawyers in private. They have one hour a day for “exercise”, showers, and phone calls. They have been denied due process.
One of them died awaiting trial.
Biden’s DOJ jackboots persecute the Jan 6 protesters while Antifa and BLM criminals who destroyed cities and committed murder, get off light.
Burn Loot Murder lasted 7 months with 23 people shot dead, 700 police officers injured, and over 150 federal buildings damaged. Antifa’s rampage has resulted in damage comparable to Hurricane Sally. Combined casualties from both groups of thugs numbered 926 as of July 2020. Anarchists took over blocks of city neighborhoods in Seattle and Portland. They’re still at it. The Feds refuse to prosecute.
The fucking twats at the DOJ thinks they were just “exercising their basic civil rights”
Speak out against the corrupt D.C. swamp and get surveilled, hacked, harassed, and arrested. The bill of rights has been revoked by the authoritarian thugs in the DOJ and the Dems are complicit.
The FBI framed the 6 January MAGA protesters by inserting undercover agents and informants in the crowd to encourage violence. It backfired, but that’s not stopping the Feds from persecuting people who simply wandered the hallways, stood outside the building, and peacefully protested.
The Dems have created a system of bullying and persecution of political opponents.
Unless or until America stands up to this, the authoritarian government brutality will continue. If you don’t think it affects you, just wait.
This kind of government atrocity is usually found in communist countries and Banana Republics.
Now, it’s happening in America.
