The family of Ashli Babbitt, the woman shot and killed by authorities during the January raid and riots, is suing Capitol Police and the officer for wrongful death. They are seeking $10 million in damages, their lawyer told Zenger News.
The Justice Department previously ruled that no charges would be filed against the officer, who has not been identified.
What it looks like is this guy shot this lady for no legitimate law enforcement purpose. And, you know, they ought to be pretty ashamed of that,” the lawyer, Terry Roberts told the outlet.
Babbitt, 35, was an Air Force veteran, Trump supporter, and member of QAnon. She was one of five people killed that say during the chaos, and was shot while trying to climb through a window and breach the Speaker’s Lobby inside the House of Representatives.
Clique, do you think her family deserves $10 million?
