A friend of the Air Force vet shot and killed during Wednesday’s riot at the US Capitol labeled her death “an execution,” but said the California woman believed President Trump’s cause was “worth dying for.”
Ashli Babbitt, 35, was shot in the chest by a Capitol Police officer as she tried to climb through a smashed window beside a barricaded double door inside the Capitol, part of the mob attempting to breach the House chambers.
Heartbroken friend Jack Feeley, a fellow Air Force vet, described her to The Sun as a “true American.”
“She may have laid down her rifle, but she was still willing to lay down her life for her country and what she strongly believed in,” Feeley said. “I’m positive she’d be furious going down without a fight. That was an execution.”
He lamented that videos of the incident were broadcast, saying it “breaks my heart to know millions of people watched my friend be executed
