Police Officer Saves Teenager from Knife-Wielding Attacker, Protester ‘Why did they kill this baby?’

A police officer in Columbus, Ohio, saved a young woman yesterday from another 16-year-old girl who attacked her with a knife, but Black Lives Matter protesters have called for the officer’s punishment.

The officer, who has not been identified, shot and killed the attacker before anyone was seriously injured.

Columbus Police released body cam footage of the incident just hours after it occurred. Protests had already begun, but police and the Columbus mayor believe the footage justifies the officer’s behavior.

Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther, a Democrat, mourned the loss of the young victim but defended the officer’s use of deadly force.

“It’s a tragic day in the city of Columbus. It’s a horrible, heartbreaking situation,” he said. “We felt transparency in sharing this footage, as incomplete as it is at this time” was critical.

“We know based on this footage the officer took action to protect another young girl in our community,” he told reporters.

Police had been dispatched to a residence after receiving reports of a violent assault at that location. The entire incident was caught on the officer’s bodycam footage, which showed the altercation unfold within about 12 seconds.

“What’s going on? What’s going on?” the officer asks upon arriving at the scene and exiting his vehicle.

Immediately after his arrival, a girl can be seen falling to the ground while Bryant swings a knife at her. “Hey! Hey!” the officer shouts as he draws his sidearm.

Bryant turns and goes after another girl and pins her against a car. In the video, a knife can clearly be seen in her right hand. “Get down! Get down! Get down! Get down!” the officer yells. When Bryant does not stop her attack, the officer shoots her four times while the other girl runs away.

Police immediately began administering aid. Bryant was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly thereafter.

The facts of the incident didn’t dissuade protestors from characterizing the case as another unjustified police shooting.

They gathered at the crime scene with Black Lives Matter signs, megaphones, and a loudspeaker, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

“We don’t get to celebrate nothing,” K.C. Taynor said through a megaphone of the Derek Chauvin verdict. The verdict came down about 25 minutes after the shooting occurred. “…In the end, you know what, you can’t be Black.”

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 added, “there should be an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.”  

One man who lived in the neighborhood confidently explained to reporters what happened in the incident.

“My understanding is that the police didn’t even say, ‘Drop the knife.’ He just got out of his car and started shooting her,” he said. The man claims to have spoken with people who witnessed the entire incident.

Interim Police Chief Michael Woods told reporters that the law allows officers to use deadly force in defense of others. Ohio’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation is now reviewing the killing.

    Knives have horrifically killed multitudes. How many times is it OK to let that lady be stabbed before you stop her attacker?

  • Easy Eddie April 26, 2021, 11:16 am

    The leading cause of violent deaths in the black community is other blacks. The urban cities and their plantations of high-rise ghettos that have long been Democrat Party strongholds don’t teach the value of life. While the investigation is still ongoing, it appears that this officer landed in a lose-lose scenario. At this point we can sit back and watch Columbus burn. Perhaps if the LEO community de-policed these areas for a couple months the problem would be self-correction. And it’s a cryin’ shame that a thought like that could ever be voiced in this country.

  • Russ April 26, 2021, 11:10 am

    Watch the video. If you don’t understand why the Officer did what he did, then you are also part of the problem. Yeah it’s really that simple.

  • Dr Motown April 26, 2021, 8:22 am

    According to the “activists,” you “can’t be black” unless you’re allowed to commit violent acts against others…..SMDH

  • Mick April 24, 2021, 10:34 am

    Well… officer was justified.
    Unfortunately it’s the same old narrative of racism and killing of “innocent “ blacks. I’m so sick of it.
    I could care less what happens to blacks or even black on black violence.

    To hell with them!!!

  • John April 24, 2021, 12:22 am

    The officer did a great job, accurately aimed and did not hit others. If you want your life to matter then don’t be a criminal. The public is also arming themselves for obvious good reason. The politicians who are funding and supporting these violent acts are just as much to blame. You know who you are so I do not have mention your names. There are also some billionaires who were funding BLM and we also know you are.

  • leonard April 23, 2021, 9:31 pm

    from all the conflicting comments about what was happening before the officer arrived, there is only one thing that can be the truth. that truth is that “witnesses” either lie about what they “witnessed” or they were lying about being a “witness”! the real facts might never come to the light of day. the officer is dammed if he does and dammed if he does not, in this situation. does he shoot a knife wielding hippo or the “daddy” who was putting boots to a downed hippo? hippo or beached whale if you prefer, only referring to their fatness and not racial indicators, but i reserve my first amendment right to call them what ever i choose to call them!
    maybe the officer should have just gotten back in his car and called for some black cops to come handle the situation.
    if someone attacks my child ill make them back the F up, if they do not, then they be dead either before going to the hospital or after they get out of the hospital!
    if your drunk/high and hit my car with me in it, you just assaulted me with a many thousand pound deadly weapon, i do NOT think you are going to survive the accident unless you kill me first!! someones personal problems does NOT excuse their actions, or minimize their degree of punishment.
    i had a broken ankle and was not able to work, social services would NOT help us because in the months previous to my breaking my ankle i had made too much money(our house had burned to the ground so we were paying bills resulting from the fire including a used car to replace the burned up one, no renters insurance as we were poor). they gave me 4 years in prison because i broke into some weekend cabins looking for food to feed my wife and step son. if my situation does NOT matter then NO ONE ELSE’s situation matters either. rights can NOT be revolked, if you think they CAN, them ill laugh at you when they take yours!!!

  • sfvshooter April 23, 2021, 8:26 pm

    Comments on this site never disappoint. I’m sure most, if not all, of you people are Trump supporting/Qanon believing/hate mongers.

    Here’s some new for you people. You’re relics of a bygone era and you’re going to be left behind, both socially and economically. Trump was your last gasp effort to remain relevant and it ended badly.

    Just think, in a few generations, you’ll be minorities in this country and your daughters and grand daughters will have mixed babies.

    Sleep well.

    • Kane April 26, 2021, 9:56 am

      Joe Biden has been in power politics for more than 50 years, almost 20% of the existence of the US. Biden has played a direct role in the giving away of US tech, R& D, top union jobs, economic supremacy et cetera. Communist China was about to die a natural death in 1989 and American politicians stepped in and saved the monster without one human rights or environmental concession. You still blame Trump for for his 4 years of trying to stop generations of damage done by cowards like Biden.

      Thank you for being honest about the very real effort and goals of miscegenation psych-ops within the US and all western civilization. . How do you suppose the US will stand up with a s those “mixed babies” have to run things. Will China be defeated by “diversity”? Do you think that you will somehow come out on top when those transfatted “mixed babies” cannot work the farms and factories that were built by more able generations? Chinese troops will worry about coddling the incapble future generation that can hardly read or do simple math.

      “Sleep well” yourself.

    • DELCO April 26, 2021, 10:15 am

      SFVSHOOTER, why don’t you acknowledge the facts so that things can begin to get better. The black communities have a cultural problem. Not a single kid in Baltimore was over 50% proficient in math, English? I mean only $19 billion in tax money a year no big deal. Why is it that the suburban areas have the most Guns but hardly any shootings? But instead of acknowledging these things , it’s people like you that scream racist racist, so anyone thinking of helping says forget this I’m not gonna deal with all that noise. And the problems continue. This video is truth , but BLM and other activists groups if they dont run out and protest then they don’t get paid the $50 or whatever the going rate is to show up to a fraudulent rally/riot these days. I mean how dumb to you have to be to attack trump who secured our borders , but you support Biden who has allowed our country to be INVADED by tens of thousands of illegals who will soon be living in already devastated urban neighborhoods. Yeah all those illegals Will surely help those already struggling neighborhoods. This cop had a split second to save a life. Maybe this girl shouldn’t have tried to stab unarmed kids. But SVSSHOOTER, you continue to spread BS and the rest of us will watch as thousands of young blacks get killed each year , all because you won’t allow people to call situations like this what it is, a justifiable shooting that saved the life of a young black girl that unfortunately killed another black girl who decided to act like an animal with a knife.

    • jrkmt1 April 27, 2021, 4:20 am

      Who I support is immaterial.
      I keep hearing about Qanon and have no idea what or who it is or about. I have done considerable research on the topic and have yet to find any information that defines or describes it in an understandable, intelligent manner.
      Hate monger? Highly doubtful as my parents raised me on Martin Luther King Jr.’s teachings long before he came on the scene.
      Those whom you seem to support have already been left behind both socially and economically. Not all, by any means, but far too many gleefully accept the crumbs doled out to them by the liberals in government so they don’t have to work, or become involved in criminal enterprises claiming they have no other means of income opportunity.
      Social advancement is impossible when you refuse to become educated, disrespect others and the law, refuse to apply one’s self in a beneficial and productive manner, and are constantly committing some type of violence.
      Should anyone surpass us, it will be those of Asian descent. But for some reason, they are considered white by the “woke” crowd.
      No, they only manner I may be considered as a “relic” will be because of my age.
      I seriously doubt that in a few generations we’ll be minorities in this country as blacks are working assiduously at exterminating themselves. When that occurs, the only “mixed babies” our daughters and grand daughters will have will be brown, red, or yellow. And when you think about it, those “mixed babies” will still be white.
      I have no trouble sleeping at night whatsoever.

    Officer did exceptional good job that not only saved life of woman in pink but little puppy too.

    • jrkmt1 April 27, 2021, 4:34 am

      The first time I viewed the video clip I saw the pup being cradled in Pink’s right arm. Then she is attacked by the knife-wielder causing her to drop the dog on the driveway pavement.
      I sincerely hope that the pup was not injured in the fall and was not trampled in the altercation.
      You are the only person, besides myself and one other, that I have seen/heard refer to the pup’s well being.

  • Terry Edwards April 23, 2021, 6:53 pm

    Perhaps only black officers should be allowed to interfere with black-on-black assaults; there is too great a risk of misunderstandings and mass consequences.

  • Bobby April 23, 2021, 6:53 pm

    I guess the right thing for police to do is pull up and watch, Don’t do anything. Let them all kill each other. Then call for backup and call the meat wagon. I guess BLM would be happy then.
    Look up FBI report on homicide by race. You’ll see where most of out gun problems come from.
    Truth, The New Hate Speech

    • Easy Eddie April 26, 2021, 11:21 am

      So right. We don’t need gun control. We need Democrat control.

  • WhatACrazyWorld April 23, 2021, 2:31 pm

    One question. What are the parents of the girl who was saved from being stabbed and possibly murdered saying about the actions of the officer who saved her?

    The Black Lives Matter Movement, Riot-inducing Media and Talk-Before-They-Think-or-Know-Anything Celebrities like LeBron need to stop their race-baiting, nation-destroying rhetoric/reactions.

    We ask our Police officers to go into harms way every day. In crisis situations they have to make split second decisions that yes, could end up taking a life to save a life and sometimes it’s their own life that needs savings from the hostile, lawless, segment of society that have zero respect for the laws of the land.

    In this instance, you see the raised hand with a knife of the assailant ready to plunge it into her victim. What is the officer supposed to do? She already stabbed the girl once as she was falling. If the officer didn’t stop her, the other girl may have been murdered and then her family would probably sue the police department for not reacting. PUT YOURSELF IN THE OFFICER’S SHOES!

    As for Le Bron…DO SOMETHING about Black on Black violence that accounts for 93% of young, black people’s deaths every year! Say and do something about that Le Bron and Black Lives Matter, MSM, and all the others screaming “racist” before they even know the real facts.

    Our youth need two parents…a father and mother teaching them respect, manners and right and wrong. Maybe if people went back to church again, they would have some support teaching their young ones about being good citizens and human beings. Parents would benefit greatly from hearing about love at church instead of all the hate on TV and Social Media. Garbage in…garbage out.

    The fat-one with the knife has an attitude problem. She looks like a ‘T-Rex’ going after a small Brontasurus dressed in pretty- pink. So, one more ‘peaceful’ demonstration in the hood is resolved.

  • All lives should matter April 23, 2021, 12:41 pm

    So…in your minds…you are a teen on your property…adults not allowed on that property outnumber and start attacking you…you use a knife to stave them off until police arrive…you get shot withing seconds of the officer seeing you defending yourself…and later gun rights activists and other people not really interested in what really happened call your death justified…how would you feel if you were her family members? Or if that were your daughter (imagine she was white)…you would be angry…give this young AMERICAN teen the same deference…I’m not even saying attack the officer…just give her the respect and maybe ask how can we enable law enforcement to deal with these fast moments better…that’s not too hard

    • Shanz April 23, 2021, 4:30 pm

      If she was white with a knife nobody would care. I bet you’re a racist pos.

    • Kimberpross April 23, 2021, 7:27 pm

      Who called the police saying there is a girl threatening them with a knife? I was 16 once and never occurred to me to ever grab a knife and threaten someone, or protect myself. Also, it seems reasonable that if I was wielding a knife, individuals were running from me or I had one held against a car and a police officer was there that I will be shot. If there was more time to respond he could have tazed her but he had to protect the potential victim.

    • DELCO April 26, 2021, 10:25 am

      ALL LIVES SHOULD MATTER? What if they were white? That’s FN dumb. And tell ya what let’s have someone take a knife , we say ready set go and that person will go full speed at your kid /mom whoever ya care about, then at the same time you are responsible for saving your loved one from the knife attack. We’re all sure you would save the day . Haha . You keep living your anti American sheltered life , and pretending that the problem isn’t within the culture and lack of things like family structure, education and straight up personal responsibility.

    • Al April 26, 2021, 10:39 am

      All lives matter? The guys that flew the planes and planned 9/11. Do their life matters? People that have cause immeasurable misery and suffering (trafficking kids, killing children) do their life matters? Stop with this Utopian Bullshit and live in reality. Some people are better of dead, 7 feet under. Take each case as it comes and judge it’s merits. As far as the shooting, this officer made an incredible decision within seconds and didn’t not get anyone else hurt or killed in the process. This is why each state constitution bestowed the right to take a life on each police officer, to make those split second decision. Ask yourself what you what have done, giving the same situation. Stop drinking the Kool Aid.

    • MAK April 26, 2021, 11:19 am

      Regardless of the circumstances, the officer was justified in using force. The young lady who was shot, if she survived, would have had a far more tenuous claim to justified self defense. Where did she get the knife? Did she bring it out with her? Did she go back inside and get it? Any of those actions would have negated a claim of self defense. It’s all unfortunate, but the police officer acted correctly.

  • Jesus O martinez April 23, 2021, 11:05 am

    This neighbor that suppously saw the altercation, on the interview hes distorting the facts as usual the police officer gave her a warning to “get down at least 3 times she refused to comply and kept advancing towards the female in pink he had nochoice but to use deadly force. So how can this gentleman Ira Graham III say that the officer said nothing and began to shoot as soon as he left the vehicle, not only does he needs better glasses but a hearing aid as well. People like that see and hear what they want to see and hear. People like that love to play the blame game instead of examining the actual facts. The officer as JUSTIFIED. It was a good shoot!!

  • Al April 23, 2021, 11:03 am

    I’ve always said it, the biggest enemy this country has is its media. They consistently present a false narrative without checking their sources and inject their own false opinions and story lines. Checking the immediate news release of the major networks and newspapers, they all conveniently left out the part that the assailant was armed with a knife and was about to stab/killed someone else. To make matters worst the senile man in the White House is screaming that the police is systematically racist. This will only get worst until a new Republican President takes office.

  • Altoids April 23, 2021, 11:00 am

    1) Her (the knife wielding goon’s) toxicology screen should be interesting. Wonder what she was overdosing on and by how much.

    2) This should scare the hell out of us. Does any reasonable person here think that the police will defend us should we come under an assault if the perpetrator is a “Person of Color”?

    It’s better for the police officer if he tells you “Good luck”. Any action against the goon will result in the police officer going to prison.

    Could you blame them?

  • Jesus O martinez April 23, 2021, 10:50 am

    The shooting was justified. When the officer got out of his patrol vehicle he shouted get down get down but the female would not stop the assault, she was triying to stab the two girls and what is up with that fucker that was kiking the girl while she was down. He should be arrested and prosecuted for asault. after kicking the female that was on the ground he had the odasity to scream why you shoot her she’s a baby, oviously it din’t matter that he was assaulting another baby. he should have been fired upon also as he was commiting a forceble felony wich is punishable by death..

  • Ken April 23, 2021, 10:50 am

    I am sure that the parents of the girl in pink are grateful to the officer.

    News Flash: You don’t get to try to stab someone in front of a cop and not get shot by the cop.

    Amazing that the level of rage the deceased girl had was such that even the presence of a cop did not detain her from attempting to stab another person.

  • John Lloyd Scharf April 23, 2021, 10:19 am

    NO computer program that can make the decision a cop has to: DEADLY FORCE is justified only when undertaken to prevent 𝙞𝙢𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙣𝙩 AND otherwise 𝙪𝙣𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙞𝙙𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 danger of death or grave bodily harm to the innocent. This requires an assessment of the 𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮, 𝙤𝙥𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙪𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙮, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 of an aggressor necessary to cause serious or lethal harm. Read a situation in less than a second with a computer to compete with what law enforcement has to do. The use of persuasion and conflict reduction rather than resort to the use of force requires assertiveness and courage. Having a professional who is trained to use of verbal persuasion and conflict reduction rather than resort to the use of force is productive. No matter how correct your rules of engagement are, you will regret it. KNOW THAT FIRST. Every Vet has to live with it.

    Studies of the average time for a police officer to mentally justify using their weapon was up to .87sec for a complex scenario.On top of that, it takes the average shooter at least 1.71 seconds to draw from a friction holster.Then you can tack on .3 – .5 seconds for experienced shooters to rack the slide and load a round in the chamber.But that’s only if you’re a highly experienced shooter…And it takes both hands to do, which you might not have available in a real-world encounter.So with an extra half-second tacked on, it could take you 3 seconds (or more) to recognize a threat, deploy your firearm, load a round and fire.In that time you could already be shot, stabbed, or stomped and beaten by multiple attackers.Not to mention, under stress, with adrenaline coursing through your body, your dexterity can nosedive…And you can easily short-stroke the action, causing a stove-pipe and jamming-up your gun.You might not even realize your gun’s not ready to fire until you pull the trigger and nothing happens.By that time you figure out what went wrong, it could be too late…

    • DELCO April 26, 2021, 10:35 am

      John loyd Scharf, I agree with ya brother. Except we carry one in the chamber at all times. If you have a CCW , when you draw you don’t rack the slide , it’s ready to go . That’s why striker fired pistols have a slight advantage because there are most times no safety selector because not only does that require additional training but the consistency of the trigger is something appreciated with the striker fire. Not trying to be a know it all, but to pull your pistol and think you have time to chamber a round, is the same as saying you have time to put your seatbelt on before you have a head on collision. It’s not possible most times. Cheers.

    This couldn’t be a more perfect example of proper use of force. The black community protesting this is proof that they have zero respect for the law, police or our process. We will soon be at a point where only black people will be able to carry a badge, and maybe not even them!

  • Common Sense April 23, 2021, 9:01 am

    Why does the lethal option have to be the first option when policing brown and black people? When he jumped out the car he already had his hand on his gun…not the taser. He just as easily could have stopped her with the taser than 4 rounds at close range taking her life. Not only that he stupidly used the girl being attacked as a backstop when firing. Not caring about the life or either child. This needs to stop.

    • Jim April 23, 2021, 11:06 am

      Your statements are biased and aren’t supported by the video. First, The officer doesn’t appear to draw his weapon until after the first girl being attacked is on the ground. Second, the taser isn’t guaranteed to put down an attacker, a recent incident where an officer deployed the taser at point blank range and still the criminal was able to pull a gun and shoot the office, plus the time factor in the video left little option than to apply deadly force to meet deadly intent. Third, again the time factor precludes the officer from moving to a more ideal shooting position, I would applaud his discipline/control and accuracy rather than criticizing the choice forced on him by the criminal. A funny observation, the black man in the video immediately starts berating the cop for shoot a “kid” but the video clearly showed he had no problem kicking another black kid in the head while she was on the ground. Isn’t it great how the people being assaulted are thankful the police arrived and the criminals are screaming racism. Wonderful country we live in today.

      Ginsu Girl is already using deadly force by using a knife. Deadly force is the appropriate response regardless of the color of the perp. But please keep spinning your narrative if it makes you feel better.

  • Charles A Bacsko April 23, 2021, 8:58 am

    They want to defund the police except when someone is trying to kill them. Then, when the police get there and stop the attack they blame the police for shooting the thug. What the FuxK! The cop should have walked away and let her stab the other person. No more bullshit.

    I remember back when I didn’t despise the entire race of anthropoids.

  • D.J. April 23, 2021, 8:56 am

    I wish to quote Mr. Massad Ayoob regarding the judicious
    use of deadly force being justified when ;

    ” There is the immediate, otherwise unavoidable danger
    of death or grave bodily harm to the innocent .”

    Any doubt this situation rises to that standard ?

  • Chien Rouge April 23, 2021, 8:49 am

    She got shot because her family failed in raising her properly and teaching her not to stab people. It’s against the law. The police will shoot you if they see you stabbing people. Stand up and take responsibility mom.

  • Mac April 23, 2021, 8:44 am

    Looks justified to me…she could have plunged that knife into the other girl’s chest in a slit-second and it appeared that was going to happen had the officer not taken swift/decisive action. Instead of always accusing and investigating police behavior and actions, et al, they need to investigate why blacks can’t/don’t better control themselves and act civil, rather than acting like ignorant, rabid animals, disobedient to laws and commands, resisting, etc…the cause of so many similar incidents.

  • Al April 23, 2021, 8:10 am

    Lives matter and that cop just saved one! Give it a rest BLM. Go buy more million dollar homes instead of actually helping people.

  • LeBron James April 23, 2021, 8:02 am

    Certainly this was justified. Had the girl on the hood been knifed wbile the police did nothing, BLM and blacks would have claimed police didn’t care. Blacks need to get their people in order. Doesn’t make sense people become cops.

  • Franco April 23, 2021, 7:47 am

    Sadly the police seem to get condemnation for justified shootings but get a pass when shooting unarmed veterans while protesting.

  • MB (the real MB) April 23, 2021, 7:45 am

    Dumb protesters are all about race, not logic. Just another excuse to riot, which is just another excuse to loot, rob, burn and destroy. The kid went looking for trouble, found it, but now she’ s saint, just like Travon, Freddy, Mike, George, etc. All dirtbags, all dead because they were criminals. Meanwhile, nobody gives a crap about a 7 year old black girl shot to death while waiting for a Happy Meal at McDonald’s by 9 hood rats out doing their “gangst” stuff.

    The blue flu is coming back….teach your rookies about it

  • Hugh Mungus April 23, 2021, 7:17 am

    Justified.

  • Leighton J Cavendish April 23, 2021, 6:49 am

    Proving that cops are in a no-win situation.
    Maybe they need to just let things take their course and just take statements afterwards.
    Maybe let the criminals/suspects turn themselves in…if they want to… .
    Or maybe just don’t show up at all.

  • Rob April 23, 2021, 5:52 am

    This looks to be 100% justified. The officer did not have tivm for fancy protocols and did his job: ‘To protect & serve’. When someone is weilding a knife with intent, irrelevant of their colour – they are asking ‘pretty please’ to be shot. This is an absolute tragedy for perpetraitor’s family and my heart sincerely goes out out to them. This looks to be a social dispute that eneded so tragically.

    But, from the footage – if She had her way, She would would have taken at least another 2 lives with her. The offficer did his duty here and it is not a matter of racism and should not be another scapegoat or labelling oportunity for ‘Black Lives Matter’. I am not racist at all, being of mixed race – my great grandfather from S. Virginia was the first free black man in my family. There’s just too much racist laebelling out there as far as I am concerned. Let it go!

  • John Bailey April 23, 2021, 5:34 am

    Black lives do matter, indeed, because the would-be victim was black and was saved by a good person with a gun. This is the way things should be. You threaten the life and limb of an innocent, you deserve to die.

  • Charlie April 23, 2021, 5:25 am

    When a jihadist goes on a knifing spree its ok to put them down but because they are black they should expect a different outcome? Smfh. If he hadn’t been there there would be 2 dead and no outrage from the community which would probably follow the rules of snitches get stitches.

  • michael george Hegyan jr April 23, 2021, 5:19 am

    Nothing is going to change these animals. Black genocide is here to stay. The reason the corrupt main stream media, doesn’t cover the continuous black on black killings in Chicago.

  • Norman Dvorak April 23, 2021, 4:55 am

    From what I have seen this officer saved the girl wearing the pink outfit ‘s life. Now if that isn’t justified just ask the girl in pink and her parents if they believe the shooting was justified.

  • Kelly Lee April 23, 2021, 3:28 am

    100% justified. Officer did good IMO. He could have shot her as she was attacking the first girl but did not. The bad guy paid the price she should have paid and, now, the guy kicking the downed girl needs to be prosecuted for his assault.

  • Ryan Comeau April 22, 2021, 3:52 pm

    Thank you for saying it how it was. Police saved the girl. This is what the media should be saying.

  • Just Say’n April 22, 2021, 2:06 pm

    After the shooting, the guy certainly seems to think things should have been handled differently. Why was he ok to stand there and watch? Is that the kind of violence from a 14 year old girl he deems acceptable? Did the girls being attacked deserve it in his view? No accountability! Come on society, stop blaming bad outcomes on a reactive basis and start being more proactive.

  • paul April 22, 2021, 11:44 am

    Why don’t the headlines say Officer saves 2 women from knife wielding assailant??? I guess that wouldn’t cause riots, and the truth is evil bad!

    I would also like to know why nothing is being done about the black guy kicking the woman on the ground, is that now legal, guess we need to consult with Lebron for his official expert opinion………

    • Yep yep April 22, 2021, 3:34 pm

      😅😅😅😅🤣🤣😂😂sad but true….. They are what they are and fuck a man who plays a kids game for a living. Be a real man and do something useful with your life LeBron Lames
