Two years ago Capitol Police officer Michael Byrd, during the riot at the U.S. Capitol, shot and killed an unarmed Ashli Babbitt, who was inside the building.
Today, on the second anniversary of Babbitt’s death, Capitol police arrested her mother, Micki Mitthoeft, for protesting what happened back then.
The Gateway Pundit posted a statement from the police agency that said Witthoeft was accused of blocking traffic and not obeying an order.
The report explained, “Micki Witthoeft was part of a group of protesters walking westbound on Independence Avenue between the Capitol and House office buildings. A trailing police officer in a marked car tried to order the protesters to move to the sidewalk away from the Capitol. The protesters ignored the warning and continued marching, with Witthoeft on the outside in the middle of a traffic lane.”
It continued, “Capitol Police set up a roadblock and ordered the protesters to cross the street to the sidewalk or be arrested. After an officer shoulder checked Witthoeft where she tried to move past him, Witthoeft turned her back to the officers and offered to be arrested.”
🚨 BREAKING ‼️
They arrested Ashli Babbitt’s mom, Micki, for jaywalking!
I guess she’s lucky they didn’t murder her like they did her daughter.https://t.co/9e4LpovO5i https://t.co/4tbIsEMLiN pic.twitter.com/SrU7Y6znma

The Gateway Pundit said, “D.C. law says spontaneous street protests are allowed, but that police must give three verbal warnings that can be clearly heard and understood before arrests can be made. It is not clear of the Capitol Police followed the prescribed procedure.”

A video shows the march, with the situation involving Witthoeft at about the three-hour mark.
Police said, in a statement, the group “did not have a permit to demonstrate on Capitol Grounds.” Police then told the group to get out of the road or face arrest, and “a woman in the group was given multiple warnings to get out of the road. Instead of getting out of the road,” the officers claimed, “the woman refused to leave, turned around with her hands behind her back, and asked to be arrested.”
Police cited two “regulations,” including “Obey An Order,” “and “Blocking And Obstructing Roadways.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.
To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.
Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.
All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the latest issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
