Police Shooting Of Black Teen Girl Ma’Khia Bryant in Columbus Was Justified

A teenage black girl by the name of Ma’Khia Bryant was shot and killed by police during an alleged knife attack in Columbus, Ohio. Initial reports of the shooting happened just moments before the Derrick Chauvin trial verdict was reached. There may have been Black Lives Matter or BLM-affiliated groups already in the area staging protests for the “incorrect” Chauvin verdict. One way or another, these groups assembled and they immediately went down to the police station to protest the shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant.

Columbus Police Department got the body camera footage out almost immediately. The footage completely ruins the idea of an “unarmed black girl” or “innocent black girl” gunned down by police. Police pull up to a scene of chaos and calm. A young lady wearing all pink calmly approaches the police officer as he arrives, which signals that she may have been the one to call the police, not Ma’Khia Bryant as online rumors (and other sources) may suggest.

To the officer’s right, there was a scuffle involving two females and a male. One female was pushed to the ground by another female. The apparent aggressor, in this case, is Ma’Khia Bryant. She appeared to have a knife at the point where the girl was pushed down. The officer successfully prevented any stabbing of the girl on the ground. The male standing by apparently tried to kick the girl on the ground in the head. After Bryant disengages from the girl on the ground, she then engages the “calm” girl in the pink who originally approached the officer when he pulled up. Bryant is clearly caught on camera swinging her knife and attempting to stab the young lady in the pink.

The police officer on the scene has no other choice but to shoot Ma’Khia Bryant once she raised her knife in a stabbing motion directly beside the young lady in the pink. He did what was necessary to protect life. Critics say that the officer could have used a taser or some type of pepper spray. This does not make sense because the knife was already in full swing and stab motion. There is a split second to react in order to prevent serious injury and/or save a life. Using methods with high failure rates and slow preparation times simply makes no sense in a life-or-death situation.

Ma’Khia Bryant’s family says that she called the police because girls were jumping her outside of her house. The family also said that Bryant was sixteen years old. The city and public officials from Franklin County, Ohio say something different. Ma’Khia was apparently 15 years old and a ward of the state, under the county’s foster care. And the 9-11 call was not attributed to a specific person, but the content of the call was given by authorities. The call was apparently for one female who was trying to stab and “put hands” on people. When the officer pulled up, this description matched Ma’Khia Bryant.

  1. Was it “fair” that Derek Chauvin had to go out on that call in the first place? That GF had to mess up his own life, mess up the lives of those around him, then mess up to the point where someone with actual responsibility had to step in and correct his actions? People talking about “accountability”…it was lack of accountability on the part of GF that led to the whole crappy mess. He was the MAIN cause! He not only ruined his and his circle’s lives, he’s also ruined the lives of 4 cops that were out doing their jobs!

  2. just how stupid can a person be ,i guess she was supposed to be able to kill this woman and nothing happens ,that is the impression that MSM and the DEMS are giving these animals ,not happening ,the cop should get a medal ,sorry for the death but we have free will and make choices some good some BADDDDDDD

  3. she had a knife and was going to kill the other girl . black lives matters and the democrats are trying to brain wash you that all cops are evil . the media is bias and wants civil unrest for ratings . yes it was justified because no knife no gun shot. fact.

  4. “Momma’s” hair hat is ridiculous, “my baby promoted peace”, jeeeezus, what an idiot, that dude straight up tried to punt a female in the head who was already on the ground, FACTS: nice grouping of those 4shots-every one of them hit the target and perfectly dispatched immanent danger

  5. Everything the dead girls mother is saying can’t be believed. Starting with “loving and peaceful” and then “motherly”.

    She should go be a reporter for CNN. I’m supposed to believe that she was an honor roll student and she’s living in foster care. Something very wrong with this picture.

    I could be wrong and Ma’khia lost her temper. Nah, I would never pick up a knife and swing at someone who told me to make my bed. It doesn’t pass the smell test.

    The MAN that kicked and stomped the girl had the nerve to be yelling at the cop that Ma’khia was a kid (shooting a kid).

  6. I hope the police arrested that MAN for shoving, kicking in the head (with a shod foot) and stomping on the White girl with the dread locks/weave/braids.

    The foster mother can’t be doing a good job if there is so much chaos and violence going on. She must be doing it for the money the State pays out.

  7. Legit shooting to save the lives and stop a murder. You don’t want trouble with the police, then don’t try stabbing someone with a knife.
