Lt. Byrd is a murderer

The League of the South calls for Lt. Michael Byrd, a negro, to be tried for the murder of Ashli Babbitt, an unarmed White woman, who was shot by Byrd without warning while she was in the US Capitol on 6 January. If the situation were reversed, as in the George Floyd situation, well . . . y’all know how that would be handled. The White policeman would be convicted and sentenced to prison, as happened to officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis.

We now live in a society in which non-Whites can murder Whites (especially if the latter don’t “think right”) with legal impunity. We demand that justice be done in the Ashli Babbit murder. Michael Byrd ought to pay for his crime.
