WH Defends Ma’Khia Bryant, Who Was Shot by Cop When Attempting to Stab a Girl


White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday invoked “police violence” after an officer in Columbus, Ohio, shot and killed 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant, who, according to body camera video of the incident, was lunging at another black girl with a knife when she was shot.

Just before Chauvin was convicted in Minneapolis, Columbus police arrived at a scene Tuesday where teenagers were engaged in a physical altercation, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

A potential stabbing of an unnamed and unarmed black girl was stopped when Officer Nicholas Reardon intervened by using deadly force with his service pistol, according to WBNS-TV. Police quickly released the bodycam video. You can judge for yourself if you believe Reardon was justified in pulling the trigger of his handgun.
