A National Police Association spokeswoman is raising concern about the lack of public information around the killing of Ashli Babbitt on Jan. 6 by a plainclothes officer.

Sgt. Betsy Smith told NTD’s “The Nation Speaks” there is a double standard at President Biden’s Justice Department in light of Babbitt and the trial of Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd.

If 35-year-old Babbitt, a U.S. Air Force veteran, had been a liberal activist protesting abortion, the American public might know the name of the officer who shot her, and he might be facing criminal charges for killing an unarmed woman, Smith said.

“I think what we have to look at is the continued politicization of law enforcement in this country,” she said.

Babbitt was the only person killed by lethal force on January 6th, despite the mainstream media’s “insurrection” narrative. She was attempting to climb through a smashed door pane into the House chamber when a plainclothes office shot her in the neck.

“So now we’ve got this double standard and I find that very dangerous,” Smith asserted. “I think that if the Justice Department has said that that officer should not be charged, then that’s fine. But I think that the American public deserves to know the details of why deadly force was deployed, because there are very strict rules when we use deadly force. And I think we also deserve to know that officer’s name.”

Smith said there was no reason to know the name of the officer that shot Daunte Wright, but yet it was released and she had to flee her home for her own safety.
