Did Capitol Police Overreact?

There is still a lot we don’t know. But when you look at more of the details you have to wonder if the capitol police had enough reason to shoot her. Taking a life should be the last resort. And we have to wonder if reason could have been shown by someone. Obviously her reactions were not justified, but wouldn’t a nonlethal reaction have been more appropriate? Most of these questions will sadly never be answered. What do you think? Should the capitol police have shown restraint?

  • No link to terrorism and believed to be an isolated incident, police said

You can see where someone might be a little freaked out with all these guns drawn on her:
