was that cop who killed that lady inside the capitol building justified in doing so?

Yes, I believe so. The woman was armed and posed a threat to both the officers and civilians inside the building. Plus, no one had any business storming the capitol.

No, even if he thought he was in danger, killing someone in cold blood is never justified, no matter what the circumstances.

They've released the final results of the investigation, and the officer's actions appear to be legally justified.

"That lady," Ashli Babbitt, was trying to climb through a broken section of a glass door, in clear violation of the law. It is always tragic when people are injured or killed. But the officer did not commit a crime, he stopped someone who was actively committing one.
