I ask an uncomfortable question. Why isn’t Michael Byrd on trial? He shot and killed Ashli Babbitt during a mostly peaceful protest inside the Capitol on January 6.
Three trials this year beg this question.
The most recent trial ended last week when a jury convicted Kim Potter, who while a police officer shot and killed a driver who was trying to leave the scene after he was pulled over by the cops. Potter said she mistook her gun for a taser. While that may be true, nevertheless the jury found her guilty of first-degree and second-degree manslaughter.
The first of the three trials was of Derek Chauvin who was convicted of killing George Floyd. A drug user with a record of crimes, Floyd was higher than a kite. Chauvin, then a police officer, held him down awaiting putting him in jail. He blocked medical treatment. Floyd died later in custody. A jury convicted Chauvin of murder.
The third was the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse who shot and killed two rioters who attacked him, and wounded a rioter who pulled a gun on him. The jury found him innocent of all charges.
……We all know why Byrd won’t stand trial. It’s the same reason Hillary didn’t and Hunter won’t. They are part of the protected class. They are above the law. A Washington that blew millions on an investigation into a conspiracy theory about Russia that everyone knew was a lie won’t spend 10 cents on real justice in these three cases….
Former officer Kim Potter has been found guilty of manslaughter for accidentally shooting a criminal thug who resisted arrest. Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin who shot a movie producer, and Michael Leroy Byrd who deliberately murdered an unarmed Air Force veteran, are still walking free.
There’s a two-tiered system of justice in America. One for Dems and one for everyone else.
