It has been months since the Capitol riots spurned the vitriolic left to demonizing Trump and his supporters into hyperdrive. These so-called riots that terrified Pelosi and her minions supposedly caused them all PTSD and pushed them to impeach Trump a second time that ended in another acquittal.
Sadly, during these riots, there were those who lost their lives from the altercation, but the cause of their deaths has remained under a cloud of suspicion. Of course, the left used these deaths as a means to claim that conservatives were vicious, blood-thirsty, terrorists, and began to call for anyone who went to the January 6 rally to be arrested.
Now, after months of waiting for answers, a clearer picture of what caused the deaths of those involved that day is beginning to emerge after the Chief Medical Examiner has released the findings.
Dr. Francisco Diaz, the Chief Medical Examiner in Washington D.C., listed the causes of death as follows:
• Ashli Babbitt, 35, died from a gunshot wound to her left shoulder, her death has been ruled a ‘homicide’
• Roseanne Boyland, 34, died of acute amphetamine intoxication, her death has been ruled ‘accidental’
• Kevin Greeson, 55, died of hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, his death has been ruled ‘natural’
• Benjamin Phillips, 50, died of hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, his death has been ruled ‘natural’
Here is more on the findings:
One Capitol Police officer, Brian D. Sicknick, was killed, and investigators are increasingly focused on whether chemical irritants were a factor in his death, according to a senior law enforcement official. The Capitol Police said in a statement that Officer Sicknick died from injuries sustained “while physically engaging with protesters.” Two officers involved in the response have died by suicide, the local police have said.
The Times’ “update” preceded by one day the acquittal of former President Donald Trump of the impeachment charge of “incitement of insurrection” at the Senate trial. CNN had earlier conceded that the narrative about Sicknick did not yet match the evidence on February 2nd — ten days before the Times’ story correction.
Officer Sicknick was given the high honor of being lain in state the Capitol rotunda; it was an honor denied to William “Billy” Evans, an 18-year veteran of the Capitol Police who was killed in a car crash by an African-American man wielding a knife on Friday.
Despite a nationwide FBI manhunt for those who participated in the January 6th uprising, it appears that no one was armed and the only person we know was killed was Ashli Babbitt. That we still don’t know the name of the officer who shot her on video is one of the inexplicable mysteries of the Capitol riot. It is also one that no one in the mainstream media seems intent on solving.
