Lately, a lot of violence and killing has been happening. This is between Joe Biden and Donald Trump supporters. The latest news about this situation is that a group of armed Trump supporters breached the US congress and were shot by police forces. What happened that day is not America. Definitely not. And many people agree with this.
A US congressman was present at the moment when a woman was shot dead in the Capitol building. Markwayne Mullin, a Republican lawmaker from Oklahoma, said the woman had been among a crowd of people trying to enter the House of Representatives chamber.” The mob was going to come through the door, there was a lot of members and staff that were in danger at the time,” he said.
“When the police officer drew his weapon, that’s a decision that’s very hard for anyone to make and, once you draw your weapon like that, you have to defend yourself with deadly force.”
The woman who was shot was taken to the hospital, where she was later declared dead. She has not been officially named, but local media identified her as San Diego-area US Air Force veteran and Trump supporter Ashli Babbit.
Mullin said the shooting did result in the departure of the crowd from the doors of the chamber.
“The officer’s actions may be judged in a lot of different ways moving forward,” Mullin said, “but his actions I believe saved people’s lives even more. Unfortunately, it did take one though.”
