Apparent Delusional Talk from Cop Who Says He Shot Ashli Babbitt: ‘I Know That Day I Saved Countless Lives’


“I know that day I saved countless lives,” United States Capitol Police cop Michael Byrd is quoted in a Thursday NBC News article as saying in regard to his actions on January 6 in resisting people who entered the Capitol, including Ashli Babbitt who Byrd says he shot through a doorway.

That seems like delusional talk.

The people who entered the Capitol that day, many allowed to do so by members of the Capitol Police, did not go on a killing spree. They were not even armed.

Some people who entered the Capitol appear to have caused property damage, or injuries in scuffles. Many others just wandered the building like tourists. Babbitt was the only person killed that day.

So how did Byrd on January 6 save “countless lives?” If he can back up this claim, Byrd must have quite a story — one that would add incredible insight regarding what happened that day at the Capitol. Let’s hear the details.
