It has been almost 9 months since the deadly shooting of Ashli Babbitt and the mainstream media and the government have conveniently swept it under the rug. The only story they are fixated on is that Trump supporters attempted to “overthrow the government” that then-President Trump apparently said in his speech.
I won’t dive into that lie but I will say anyone who was listening to Trump’s speech that day knows he said nothing of the sort.
For months, the government has been avoiding talking about Babbitt’s tragic death and also shielding the person that did it. It has only caused more people to wonder what in the world are they hiding?
As we know the mainstream media only protects their own and are always ready to throw everyone else under the proverbial bus.
So, who are they protecting, and for what reason?
Finally, after months of silence, there are answers and it is about darn time.
According to reports, the identity of Ashli Babbitt’s killer has been revealed by the attorney representing her and her family.
The family’s attorney has stated that the shooter’s identity is none other than Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd.
The biggest question now is why are they announcing this now? Why is his identity being revealed at this time after everything has been radio silent?
It really doesn’t make any sense to anyone unless there was an intentional reason to keep this man’s name from being revealed to the people.
Lester Holt of NBC News interviewed Byrd and maybe there will be some answers or clues that will emerge.
Newsweek revealed the identity of the shooter:
Roberts said race was “clearly a factor” in the decision to shield Byrd from public scrutiny.
“It’s something that has to be considered, because it’s just a clear pattern in the United States,” he said. “A white cop kills a Black individual? Their name is out there within a day. It’s all public. And look, a police officer is a public official. There should not be any exception for this.”
U.S. Capitol Police officials, police union representatives and government officials had repeatedly claimed that disclosing the officer’s identity would put his life and his wife’s in danger—and subject them to racial slurs. Lt. Byrd’s family roots are in Jamaica, according to one of his neighbors.
His name is: "Lieutenant Michael Leroy Byrd."! He should be brought to justice killing an unarmed woman!! https://t.co/3WCKrRdmzh

It should also be mentioned that Byrd was not exactly a model officer according to this report from The Hill:
Capitol Police say that the commander of officers on the House side of the Capitol left his service weapon unattended in a bathroom where it was discovered by another officer.
A spokeswoman for the department told Roll Call that Lt. Mike Byrd will be investigated after his Glock-22, which has no manual safety to prevent unintended firing, was found “during a routine security sweep” by another officer in a bathroom on Monday.
“The Department takes these matters very seriously, and has a very thorough process to investigate and review incidents such as these, and holds personnel accountable for their actions,” spokeswoman Eva Malecki told The Hill.
So, the question is at this time, will Byrd be held responsible for Babbitt’s death?
