It’s tragic that people lost their lives, but this lady had to have known what she was doing entailed grave bodily danger.

It's sad that this woman's inability to sort fact from conspiracy theory came to this.

Everyone who wasn't one of the stupid, that pushed these conspiracy theories in order to further their team's power, played a hand in this lady's death.

And even more worrying that there are so many like her, some so wack they actually believe alien reptiles are manipulating events and their Donald Trump was sent by a higher power to save them.

The start of character assassination of an unarmed 14 years veteran. Biden leadership, good luck with unifying the country.

Not to worry, the officer that shot her will get off scot-free. Oh wait a second, she was white. The officer will go to prison for a long time.

She was voicing her opinion and she got killed for it.

Or, she was part of an out of control, armed mob illegally breaking and entering a state building for seditious purposes. More American blood on the hands of the American president.

Hilarious that you cry the start of character assignation and then attempt a hit on Biden’s character for the actions of Trump supporters. Sweet “logic.”

She was a member and supporter of QAnon.

"She was voicing her opinion and she got killed for it."

She was breaking and entering a Federal building with a screaming mob in attempt to overthrow the government.

Those who defended Chauvin or attempt Floyd parallels would be wise not to.

Her posts and retweets on Twitter backed Trump's false assertions that he was defeated because Democrats elaborately rigged the Nov. 3 election.

She loved Trump more than her country. It's pretty hard to believe she or any of the other thugs attacking the capitol 'loved their country' when they refused to believe reports from governments at every level and courts at every level and instead believed Trump, the most dishonest politician in US history.

Far right and white nationalist groups present the greatest danger to the US. They are supported by conspiracy believing organizations around the globe. Follow the money back to those organizations. And nations.

The start of character assassination of an unarmed 14 years veteran.

She assassinated her own character by being stupid enough to believe in conspiracy theories to the point that she participated in an act of sedition in trying to prevent the duly elected representatives of the people of America from certifying the legal vote of the people of America.

No need to decorate it beyond her actual acts. Others will go to jail for this. They're lucky they didn't end up like her.

"She loved her country and she was doing what she thought was right to support her country, joining up with like-minded people that also love their president and their country," he told Fox 5. "She was voicing her opinion and she got killed for it."

No, she only loved Trump and his right-wind ideals. If she cared about her country, she wouldn't have willfully broken into a government building, destroying property, and threatening bodily harm on government officials.

Trump will pardon them all as he tries to pardon himself before leaving for FLA.

What's really sad to me is that 30% believe all those lies and nobody will be charged with inciting a riot.

She fought for her country, and then she betrayed it.

It's as simple as that.

But you don't understand, the latter was for Trump. So it's all good. They've excused her.

Fake news. That there is deep-state libtard lies.

Babbitt, 35, loved her country 

Dont think so, she attacked the Capitol, was attempting to get at the staff and lawmakers before she was justifiably taken down.

She was as bad as any terrorist who has attacked America.

This.

This is a cult of personality afflcition.

It's a siege mentality. Everyone else is wrong and out to get them. And sadly, no matter how often you try to engage with such people, it only makes them more determined and more detached from reality.

Inevitable this would happen. Trumpism has led US here. It's what he was working up to.

The question now is, how much more can people's mental health take from this monster of a President?

So in gun loving America, if an unarmed person breaks into a home and gets shot dead it's OK but now the gun toting Trump followers are crying foul that a (allegedly unarmed) member of an armed mob breaking into The Capitol Building got shot dead. That's Trumpian/Qanon logic right there!

Nothing will stop us ... they can try and try and try but the storm is here and it is descending upon DC in less than 24 hours ... 

Actually, the round to the chest seems to have been rather effective.

She was breaking into a Federal building with the intent to cause trouble, the cop feared she might harm lawmakers and shot her. She died. End of story.

They typically do unless you’re wearing body armor.
