Columbus mayor urges federal probe into cop killing of Ma’Khia Bryant

The mayor of Columbus, Ohio has requested the US Department of Justice to formally investigate the fatal shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant, a 16-year-old black girl, by a white cop. Bryant was fatally shot by a cop who was responding to a call for an attack. The officer reportedly found Bryant swinging a knife at two people when he opened fire four times killing her. This prompted protests in the city.

No need doing a probe of the shooting. I can’t think of a more cut and dry clear justified use of deadly force to save another in the last few years. Tasers fail and fail more than a lot of ppl think. There was one choice and one choice only in that situation and that officer was composed, kept his rounds on target and saved another girl from at least serious bodily harm. I’ll provide examples of taser not effective against a person with a knife. https://youtu.be/jqcizjPBuiw https://youtu.be/sdKUFua5mv0 https://youtu.be/PLGPepvZsaM

We will continue to investigate until we find evidence of wrongdoing. This cop didn't return his VHS tape from 1999 so that makes him a felon. Boom, slam dunk.

Two things. Firstly when is the guy in the body cam footage who kicked the girl who was pushed to the ground going to be charged with assault? Secondly why is this cop not being celebrated for his quick decision making that saved the life of a young lady who was about to be stabbed by a "loving" and "motherly" girl?

Probe what, she was actively attempting to stab one girl, and if yiu watch the video frame by frame before she tried stabbing the pink girl, she swipes at the girl on the floor.

Ma’khia was using self defense because the others were at her house harassing her snd her grandmother. The police didnt listen to the dispatcher obviously.

There aren't many cases as clear cut and justified as this unfortunate killing. This cop saved the life of the woman about to be gutted by this girl. The fact that this is happening given the evidence and footage just pushes how much of a clown world this is.
