    Are you saying this is ok?

    No, like I said - 100% pure racism. No other explanation.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,112 ✭✭✭ Did you smash it


    I presume this is clear to all but hardened BLMers to be a case where lethal force was used legitimately.

    There's been protests already. Look up #JusticeForMakiyahBryant on twitter. #sayhername

    She's black, therefore the cops are racist.

    was it really though, why not taser?

    Racist cops. They should have let her go on stabbing people. How dare they do their job.

    And if the taser fails and she successfully stabs someone to death?

    No sorry, you're right, it's racist. I forgot she was black.

    Why didn't they just shoot the knife out of her hand?

    Imminent threat to life. Lethal force is the correct response.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,673 ✭✭✭ jam_mac_jam


    Whatever happened here or however her death will be used politically now; it's absolutely tragic that a 15 year old is shot dead.

    I know the hardened BLMers think like that but I think most people, black or otherwise would accept there’s a time and a place for lethal force and that was definitely one.

    Taser can be ineffective.

    It didn't stop this guy

    In my view there was a clear and immediate threat to life, and the officer involved in shooting took the necessary action for the preservation of life.

    I guess that's another funeral Biden will have to go to this week. Fair play to him he's like a real irish politician

    Tragic but also tragically stupid. Call the cops then commence attacking folks on the footpath with a knife in your hand.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,469 ✭✭✭ Peintre Celebre


    Genuinely amazes me that there are people out protesting about this after seeing the video. Sad situation but necessary.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,367 ✭✭✭ Be right back


    I think her dad was the lovely individual who kicked the first girl in the head. Nice family. I wonder will the girl in pink come out and speak in favour of the policeman?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,358 ✭✭✭ RebelButtMunch


    Police officer saved a life there. She was swinging around that knife at head and neck height like she meant business.

    What we needed was a good black guy with a gun.

    Yes shoot to injury why to kill as first option

    Racist police at it again in US, shooting dead a 15 year old BLACK girl - https://www.google.com/amp/s/ktla.com/news/nationworld/reports-police-shoot-kill-teenage-girl-in-columbus/amp/

    She was only trying to stab someone with a large knife. God the US police are so racist -

    Edit: Her Aunt speaking here -

    She was only trying to stab someone. What is the US becoming when the police can't just mind their own business and stop being so racist.

    I honestly don't know if you're being sarcastic or serious.

    Regardless, she was trying to stab another person which could have resulted in that persons death. Nothing racist here.

    Same thing happened to the crazy Florida woman who stabbed a cop - see below. And she's white.

    The media take

    Text now changed.
    According to Bryant, who said she had been told of the events by Makiyah’s grandmother and father, Makiyah was in front of the house fending off a physical assault when police arrived. Police shot her four times without any warning, she said.
    Hot take by local activist
    Local Columbus activist K.C. Taynor of Exodus Nation told The Daily Beast the latest police killing made it impossible to celebrate the Chauvin verdict.
    “It’s another murder,” he said. “They’re animals. They treat us like animals.”

    Not sure if you're being serious, but if you are, they're not trained to shoot to kill. They're trained to shoot at the largest part of the body in order to incapacitate, just happens that sometimes death is the result of that incapacitation. Reason: If you don't incapacitate them, they could cause further harm to people/property around them.

    Does anyone have a link to the video that's not behind a geo-wall?

    Sound. Seems justified to me. Girl in pink would possibly have died from stab wounds if she wasn't stopped. I'll still reserve final judgement in case of further facts coming out (not jumping to conclusions like the 13yr old one), but I can't see anything wrong with that on initial viewing.

    This sadly will become a case study video. Really not sure how it might have been dealt with differently as there is a whole lot going on there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,922 ✭✭✭✭ Buttonftw


    See it's all over-policing.
    Cops respond to a call. Out from the crowd comes a girl getting the **** kicked out of her by a man. Then a girl tries to stab another girl.

    Over-policing. Simple solution is to just not answer the calls any more. Let them do what they want.

    Awwww. Someone's butt-hurt over the Chauvin decision and wants to let off some steam. You go right ahead kid. Howl into that void.

    What? The Chauvin decision was correct in my view so you couldn't be more wrong there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,600 ✭✭✭ BanditLuke


    The cops need to just go on strike en masse in the states. Let's see how the virtue signalling middle and upper classes like it then.

    The media has literally become the enemy of the people. They are devoid of any journalistic or editorial standards and deliberately stoke racial tension by perpetrating narratives devoid of fact, all for their own political agendas. It’s no wonder that public trust in the media is at an all time low.
