A new video angle, apparently taken by a porch-mounted security camera, shows that the Columbus, Ohio police officer who shot Ma’Khia Bryant acted within the parameters of proper police procedure. Black Lives Matter and left-wing militants have attempted to use Bryant’s death as an excuse for more riots and looting.
In the footage, Bryant can clearly be seen storming down a driveway, engaging in a verbal altercation with multiple other females, and then taking advantage of an officer being distracted by one female’s fall to lunge at another with a knife.
The officer then engages the threat, saving the girl wearing pink.
The full body cam video of the officer involved shooting of Columbus teen Ma’Khia Bryant on Tuesday afternoon was released during a press conference held by the Columbus Department of Public Safety. The video shows the young teen charging an individual with a knife before being shot by police.
16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant was shot and killed by a police officer as she lunged at another woman during what appeared to be a large melee after police were called to the home. Bryant’s family member says police were called to end the fight happening on the property per local media WKYC. Bryant was shot by police after lunging at another woman with a knife, and was later pronounced dead in a local hospital.
