Ironically, on the day of Derek Chauvin’s “trial” (it was not a fair trial given all the intervention and threats by Maxine Waters, Joe Biden, etc.), a black 16-year-old was killed by a police officer because she was visibly trying to stab another black girl following a police call.
Released body-cam footage depicted what happened, and clearly shows Ma’Khia Bryant wielding a knife and in the process of beginning to stab another girl on the scene. However, before she was able to do so, she was shot by a police officer at the scene and later pronounced dead.
Because the officer was white and the girl was black, initially, Leftists around the country raised the same bullcrap hell they tend to do with these situations, assuming that this was the result of racism (the officer visibly saved the life of one or more black people at the scene) and just “another” example of police brutality in America.
NBA star LeBron James even tweeted “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY” with a picture of the officer of this case, before he received serious backlash and took it down (he has yet to apologize and has tried to play the victim, like the little b-word that he is).
And with the release of the body-cam footage, ABC’s “60 Minutes”, which is infamous for editing and distorting videos to fit their narrative, did exactly that and tried to edit out the knife from Bryant’s hand, attempting to make it look like a totally unjustified police killing.
However, others were less quick to judge the situation. CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo surprisingly admitted that the killing, while tragic (which it is), was justified.
“We have to be fair about what happens when police arrive at scenes. It is tragic that it’s a 16-year-old girl. Just as it is tragic that it’s a 13-year-old in Chicago (referencing Adam Toledo, who was an armed individual shot by police). When police are chasing people, they don’t know how old they are. And they don’t run and say, ‘How old are you?’ ‘Oh, I’m 13.’ You don’t know that. Or, ‘I’m 16’.”
“When they roll up on the scene, they see people tussling around. Someone has a knife. And their job is to protect and serve. Every life on that scene. And if they see someone who is in the process of taking a life, what is that decision, what decision do they have to make?”
They even went so far as to defend the use of a lethal weapon as opposed to a taser: “Tasers, they don’t always connect. So, you’ve got to get two prongs or what have you, and it has to connect to whatever. I see it, if the woman in the pink (the potential victim of stabbing) was my sister, niece, wife, whatever, you have to make a decision. Is one life on that scene more valuable than another? And if someone is trying to take a life, on that scene, do you protect the life of the person trying to take the life, or do you protect the life of the person whose life is in imminent danger at that point?”
Cuomo said: “I feel for the officer. You can hear it in his voice. When he said – the man on the side was saying, ‘You shot my baby, you shot my baby.’ And he said, ‘She had a knife. She went right at her.’ You know, this is something that he’s going to have to live with also… The analysis is only of the instant circumstances. I’m saying, if you want to have this contextual conversation that people seem to want to have about ‘what else we can do, people fight with knives all the time, do we really need cops? The answer is no, learn how to control your kids, and don’t be so violent and we won’t need cops.’ But that’s not our reality. And cops get called to our lives all the time for the worst situations.”
When the guy who said that “God doesn’t judge gay people” and the guy that pretended to have the Chinese coronavirus for sympathy while he went out partying in New York come to the agreement that the officer did the RIGHT thing, you know that there is really little reason for Leftists to be attacking the officer.
Because, as one can see from the footage, Bryant tried to stab someone. She tried to stab, and in all likelihood kill, another person.
It is a bit more understandable to be irritated before the facts come out about what happened in this case, but it is an absolute moron and degenerate who would still defend the girl knowing what we know about this case.
Bryant was a would-be murderer. Everyone trying to defend her, which at this point is LeBron James and the Biden administration, is trying to defend Bryant’s attempt to kill another person.
Which, unfortunately, is not all that surprising, to be honest. These people, who pretend to care so, so much about black lives, NEVER bring up black-on-black crime. When talking about someone like Secoriea Turner, who was killed by BLM terrorists who took over a burned down Wendy’s, she is only talked about in reference to gun crime as a whole to attempt to disarm Americans, not as a victim of THE LEFT’S OWN CHAOS AND DISCORD.
And this is without even mentioning someone like Robert Howard, who was kidnapped and executed by a police officer, but his story was not told and his name was not encouraged to be remembered because the cop that killed him was black himself.
And even recently, a 7-year-old black girl was killed in a McDonald’s drive-thru in Chicago, and her father was in critical condition as well. Jaslyn Adams was killed in gun-control heavy Chicago, likely by black shooters (admittedly, the identities of the shooters are unknown, but a 7-year-old girl killed in Chicago ought to spark the same sort of outrage from people like LeBron as the justified shooting of a would-be killer, at least. It’s still a black life that was lost). Yet, her name is largely unknown and no one is attempting to make it known, at least on the Left.
The only kind of situation that gives way for a Leftist narrative is when a white police officer is involved with the death of a black person. It doesn’t matter if that person is visibly and clearly a threat to the life of either the officer or another person (even if that other person was black themselves). Apparently, if it’s a white officer pulling the trigger against a white would-be killer, it’s unjust and a sign of racism.
To their credit, Lemon and Cuomo recognized that this was a justified shooting and that the officer did the right thing in prioritizing the life of the would-be victim over the life of Bryant, so I have nothing bad to say about them in this instance (a rare occurrence), but other Leftists like ABC News’ “60 Minutes” and celebrities like LeBron James are being stupid at best and degenerates at worst.
Because, like I said earlier, they are attempting to defend and justify the stabbing of one black person by another black person. “Let the teenager stab the other one” is what they are basically saying.
I have asked this before in prior articles, but it bears repeating: Does it sound like these people think that black lives actually matter? Or does it sound like they only matter when they are taken, justifiably or not, by a white officer? And if that’s the case, one can hardly say that they believe their life mattered.
George Floyd’s life didn’t matter to BLM. His death did. Ma’Khia Bryant’s life didn’t matter to BLM. Her death did. Michael Brown’s life didn’t matter to the Left. His death did. Freddy Gray’s life didn’t matter to the Left. His death did.
And by contrast, Robert Howard’s life, which was taken by a ghoulish cop, didn’t matter to BLM and even his death didn’t matter because his life was taken by a black cop. The wrong kind of cop, in their minds. Secoriea Turner’s life didn’t matter to BLM (evidenced by the fact it was taken by BLM), and her death didn’t matter to them either, only insofar as the Left could try and use it to attack legal gun ownership. Jaslyn Adams’ life didn’t matter to BLM and her death doesn’t matter to them either because it’s not a white cop that took her life, but likely, fellow black people. Even if it was white people who killed her, it won’t matter as much as if it had been white officers.
But in any case, this episode goes to show why waiting on the facts of a case is crucial. Facts matter, and the facts of this case are clear enough for even DON LEMON AND CHRIS CUOMO to agree that the officer did the right thing. For those who jump the gun and make assumptions, or even stupefyingly double-down, they get egg on their face about the assumptions they had made. Even if LeBron is acting like a b-word, the facts of the matter still got him to take down the original tweet which, frankly, painted a target on the officer’s back.
He won’t apologize because entitled people believe they are infallible or are above apologizing when they genuinely messed up (he demands accountability for this case, but makes no similar demand to the CCP which is keeping millions of Uyghurs and Christians in concentration camps), but he at least had enough wherewithal to recognize that he should at least take that original post down (after suffering enough backlash, at least).
Waiting for the facts is infinitely more important than initial emotional reactions to things.
“A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.”
