Same old, same old…
Police received a 911 call at 4:35 p.m. about an attempted stabbing on the 3100 block of Legion Lane, which is located north of Chatterton Road. The caller reported a female was trying to stab them, then the caller hung up.
In an unprecedented move, Columbus police showed body camera footage of the shooting of a 16-year-old girl by a Columbus police officer just hours after the incident on the Southeast Side.
The video shows an officer approaching a driveway with a group of young people standing there. In the video, it appears that the 16-year-old, identified now as Ma’Khia Bryant, who was moments later shot by police, pushes or swings at a person, who falls to the ground.
Bryant then appears to swing a knife at a girl who is on the hood of a car, and the officer fires his weapon what sounds like four times, striking Bryant, who died a short time later.
Of course, the dead teenager’s aunt was quoted as saying that the teen had dropped the knife before she was shot.
Hazel Bryant told The Dispatch that she is the aunt of Ma’Khia Bryant. The girl lived in a foster home there on Legion Lane and got into an altercation with someone else at the home, she said. Bryant said her niece had a knife, but maintained that the girl dropped the knife before she was shot multiple times by a police officer. <Source>
The politicians are quick to pander…
The call goes out…
The social justice warriors gather: it’s not the facts, it’s the narrative…
Kiara Yakita, founder of the Black Liberation Movement Central Ohio, said she is not surprised that another police shooting happened. "Why did they kill this baby?" she asked aloud. Mike Fair, 63, of the East Side, brought an amplifier and a microphone to the scene, and expressed his anger, suggesting "there should be an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth." We're not going to sit here and just sit around while you kill us, then go back in the suburbs," one protester said. "Over and over, keep killing us" another protester said. Hana Abdur-Rahim, with the Black Abolitionists Collective, said, "We are in a literal genocide. We are fighting for our lives."
Who knows how it will turn out for the police officer? Had the police officer permitted the stabbing, he would have been guilty of dereliction of duty. Will there be a violent protest, I guess we will have to wait for the professional agitators to arrive.
We are so screwed.
