Ohio Democrats, NAACP, Blue Check Liberals Attack Hero Columbus Police for Shooting Knife-Wielding Black Teen Female Ma’khia Bryant

The standard for liberals on police shootings has now moved from criticizing the deaths of unarmed violent resisters of arrest to now criticizing police for shooting armed attackers right as they are about to kill someone.

Democrat U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio spoke out on Wednesday about the deadly shooting yesterday of Black teen girl (15 or 16) Ma’Khia Bryant by a heroic Columbus police office as she raised a knife to stab another Black teen girl. Brown said Bryant “should be alive right now”: “While the verdict was being read in the Derek Chauvin trial, Columbus police shot and killed a sixteen-year-old girl. Her name was Ma’Khia Bryant. She should be alive right now. #MaKhiaBryant”

Democrat U.S. Rep. Joyce Beatty, who represents Columbus in Congress, commented after the police video was released showing Bryant being shot as she tried to stab a girl, criticizing police for the “tragic killing” of Bryant: “I am at a total loss of words over the tragic killing of 16-year-old Ma’khia Bryant by the Columbus Police. My prayers are with her family and friends. Our community is hurting, has experienced too much heartbreak, and deserves better.”

Liberal comedian Kathy Griffin told her 2 million followers on Twitter, “WARNING. How in the hell does this police officer think it’s a good idea to fire shots blindly into a group of teenagers having a fight. Yes one of them has a knife. Oh, that never happened in your school or neighborhood? She didn’t deserve to die. 16 years old. #makhiabryant”

Leftist Black activist Bree Newsome also spoke about letting kids fight each other with knaves, because white racism or something:

“Teenagers have been having fights including fights involving knives for eons. We do not need police to address these situations by showing up to the scene & using a weapon against one of the teenagers. Y’all need help. I mean that sincerely…Everyone should be frightened that the ruling white elite have done such a thoroughly successful job of not only disconnecting us from the means of basic self-sufficiency but also convincing us we need armed white officers to manage our children & communities. Frightening.”

Associate Professor Brittney Cooper: “I am not watching that body cam footage. But we see story after story of the cops managing to take white men who threaten them with guns, knives, even ram their cars into police offers alive. Yet somehow, anytime they engage with Black folks it’s shoot first. #makhiabryant” and “A Black girl is dead because the cops brought a gun to a damn knife fight. If you don’t know how to de-escalate teen girls who are fighting, you should not be a police officer. I said what I said. #MakhiaBryant”.

Entertainer London Hughes: “In a world where the police can safely apprehend white male mass shooters. I would really like to know why a trained police officer assumed that the only way to deescalate a fight, where a 16 year old black girl had a knife, was to immediately shoot her dead. RIP #MakhiaBryant…And let me just state, that my father who is NOT a police officer has broken up a fight between teenage boys with knives in London… So please don’t tell me that Officer trigger happy didn’t have the wherewithal to do the same. He just didn’t want to.”

The NAACP in Columbus watched the bodycam video and still attacked the police in a statement released late Tuesday night: “Another Black child was killed by the police. Our condolences to the family and loved ones of Ma’Khia Bryant.”

“The NAACP Columbus Branch has viewed the body camera footage released to the public and we have several unanswered questions. What threat did this 16-year old girl pose to the police officer? What steps were taken to deescalate the situation? Why wasn’t a taser or pepper spray used? Finally, how does a call for help result in the death of a 16-year old child? We demand answers and accountability for the death of Ma’khia Bryant.”

Neither the NAACP, nor the Democrats or Blue Check liberals (with the exception of Cooper) have expressed any concerns for the victims attacked by Ma’khia Bryant. One young female was seen also being viciously kicked in the head by a grown man while on the ground after she fell trying to avoid being stabbed by Bryant. BTW, did the police arrest that man?
