Damon Michael Beckley

Video footage shows Beckley was at the Capitol on January 6th. He made a grassroots video inside telling Vice President Pence he is upset about Ashli Babbitt’s death.

Another protester interrupts and asks about it. He explains she was killed “with a service weapon.” Beckley finishes creating the video, explaining his personal disgust with the “tyrannical rule” of elected officials.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
