Very Disappointing: Prof. Jonathan Turley Op-Ed On Ashli Babbitt

Law of Self Defense News/Q&A

Yesterday I published a detailed legal analysis of the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt by Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd, in response to a recent tsunami of requests to do so.  You can find that analysis here: “Sad but True: Jan. 6 Shooting of Ashli Babbitt was Legally Justified.”Because of the great public interest in this particular case, we are leaving that analysis available on an open-access basis to the general public, rather than restricting it to our Law of Self Defense Members as is our usual practice.  We’ll also be leaving today’s content open-access, for similar reasons. So, if you’d like to share either yesterday’s analysis or today’s content with others, feel free.One of the events that has triggered these recent requests for this legal analysis of the Ashli Babbitt shooting is the publication on August 28, 2021 of an opinion piece by Professor Jonathan Turley in “The Hill,” entitled “Justified shooting or fair game? Shooter of Ashli Babbitt makes shocking admission,” and apparently written in response to a television interview of Lt. Byrd aired earlier that day (you can view that television interview here:  “Extended Interview: Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd Speaks Out.”)Professor Turley’s August 28 opinion piece on the Ashli Babbitt shooting falls far short of the stellar quality I’m accustomed to seeing in his work. Indeed, from the perspective of this small-town lawyer claiming some modest expertise in use-of-force law, Professor Turley’s opinion piece seems wildly off the mark, especially coming from a notable legal expert, and can only be described as disappointing.VIDEO and TEXT versions of this content here:Very Disappointing: Professor John Turley Op-Ed On Ashli BabbittRemember:You carry a gun so you’re hard to kill.Know the law so you’re hard to convict!Stay safe!--AndrewAttorney Andrew F.

OA339: Who is Jonathan Turley, Anyway?

Opening Arguments

Today's episode is a timely impeachment-themed deep dive into the testimony of George Washington University law professor -- and legitimate legal scholar -- Jonathan Turley before the House Judiciary Committee. How should you evaluate his arguments? We walk you through them, of course! We begin, however, with a new segment: the Wingnut Lightning Round(TM), in which we evaluate -- or rather, make fun of -- two preposterous new lawsuits filed this week by two complete idiots. After that, it's time for an #AndrewWasWrong about Ronald Burris, the interim Senator nominated by Rod Blagojevich to fill Barack Obama's unexpired Senate seat. Find out the twists and turns to this rather fascinating story as a side bonus to Andrew's well-deserved comeuppance. Then, it's time for the main segment: the news that the House is going to draft articles of impeachment against President Trump despite the testimony of Jonathan Turley. How do the lone Republican-called witness's arguments stack up? (Hint: they're not good.) Surely the Republicans wouldn't have called someone who's on the record saying the exact opposite of what he's presently saying 20 years ago, right? (Guess.) After all that, it's time for a fiendishly hard #T3BE about a trial, a videotape, and a jogging plaintiff. You won't want to miss it -- and you'll want to play along! Appearances Thomas was just the main guest on Episode 498 of the Cognitive Dissonance podcast, and Thomas and Andrew make additional appearances to roast and be roasted for Vulgarity for Charity. If you’d like to have either of us as a guest on your show, drop us an email at openarguments@gmail.com. Show Notes & Links Oh man, you just have to read batshit-crazy Rep. Devin Nunes's eleventy million trillion dollar lawsuit against CNN. For more of the Roland Burris story, check out Wikipedia.
