Ma’Khia Bryant’s Family Has A Press Conference With Their Lawyer

Ma’Khia Bryant’s family held a press conference with their lawyer in Columbus, Ohio to introduce themselves to the media. They showed pictures of a better time in Ma’Khia’s life and expressed sorrow at the fact she is no longer living. The lawyer was sort of the orchestrator on the scene, making sure each family member had the opportunity to be heard. Reporters were there and they asked some very serious questions toward the end of the nearly 14-minute video. This moment is where things fell apart, and the true purpose of the press conference may have become crystal clear.

The family may very well love their daughter, sister, niece, and granddaughter. Just as any family would. However, there were some questions that reporters on the scene asked that went unanswered. If the family are so loving, and if Ma’Khia was as well, then what were the circumstances that led to her becoming a ward of the state? If so many people came out for her after she passed away, where were they when she needed somewhere to stay? The mother and father do not appear to be on drugs and they are not in prison. So why don’t either of them have custody? Not a single one of those questions was answered.

Cases like this have been happening quite a bit in recent times. Not just a questionable police shooting, but a questionable police shooting where money may be involved. Large sums of money. The family did not specifically say they are suing anyone, but they did lawyer up. The lawyer says that “systems” failed Ma’Khia – the legal system and the foster care system. Those two entities may be the target of potential litigation. Legal experts and just regular people on the left and the right have agreed on this issue more than most. The officer did not have much of a choice in this matter. It’s unfortunate, but it is what it is.

  1. Anothy, watch the video of Makhia Bryant’s family and laywer press conference all the way to the end. Towards the end Makhia’s mother goes over to Makhia’s sister, touches her, rubs her arm and eventually puts her arm around her. Makhia’s sister gives her mom a look. There is no return of affectionate gestures and ultimately, Makhia’s sister leaves her mother’s side and goes to stand with her other relatives. This speaks volumes in my opinion.

  2. It is a universal fundamental principle of the Foster Care system that ALL minors who are taken into the care of the State WITHOUT EXCEPTION have been first found through rigorous independent investigation to be in moral and/or physical danger in the custody of their legal guardians. This is a simple but highly revealing reality of this case and these ‘people’ crying their crocodile tears whilst seeking to project the blame for the tragic outcome of their own criminal negligence and deficient parenting onto anyone and everyone else.

    This ‘lawyer’ is also an utterly despicable morally depraved piece of human garbage preying upon such a case for her own pecuniary benefit and a higher public profile. Her karmic debt is high.

  3. ABL, I do not know if you read these comments or not but I think you are spot on about this and the family. The one thing that keeps jumping out to me with this and I have not seen it written or talked about anywhere is that ‘hoody guy’ who kicked the girl in the head is a big part of this. If you watch the security video from the neighbor across the street you see ‘hoody guy’ walk across the street from a car that is parked there. He then walks up to who I believe is Ma’Khia and at that very moment Ma’Khia goes raging after the other two women. It appears to me, and I am not a professional at analyzing video, but it appears to me that he may have handed Ma’Khia the knife. What say you?

  4. All we got is a bunch of questions at this point, I mean, other than the obvious occurrences we’ve seen on the vids. Press conferences are usually held to give answers in a situation, but this one was apparently staged for the court of popular opinion to lay the groundwork for upcoming civil suits against the local governments and other “deep pocket” agencies with even a sniff of culpability. I try not to be cynical, but sometimes it is just impossible to not be.
