It's a still shot from the body camera footage of the fully justified police shooting in Columbus the other day. The one the news is tying to pump up outrage over and where BLM is actually protesting it. Just Google it, you'll find the photos and the video.

Oh jeez. Thats graphic. Yeah that is definitely justifiable. Then again, we dont know what the conflict was about that caused this fight
4 ups, 3y
Yeah but, honestly, we don't really need to know that. There's no cause for an argument that justifies trying to stab an unarmed person who isn't attacking you in the throat. The cop should always shoot the person attempting to commit murder in that situation in order to save the one who isn't trying to commit murder.

It was a "mostly peaceful" stabbing.

we live in a society where black lives matter so little that two cops can only break up a knife fight between teenagers by shooting one of them fatally

One person trying to murder an unarmed person with a knife isn't a "knife fight" you psychopath. Wow, how racist you must be to think if a black person gets killed trying to murder another black person, it must be the cops fault for not stopping them gently enough. Imagine being so racist that you always root for the criminal because that's all you think black people know how to be. Disgusting.

well, one, the "victim" is the one who phoned in the alert of a knife fight, so apparently it was a knife fight. two, i didn't say gently. any non-fatal tactics would have been great. three, you guys are getting better and better at pretending to be non-racist in your arguments. four, how young would the girl have had to be before you'd think her life also had value?

This is insanely ignorant. You clearly didn't even WATCH the video did you? A) IT'S NOT A MOVIE, this is the real world. Taser her? Tasers take longer to work than the fraction of a second he had before she murdered the other girl. They also are only about 50% effective. You don't take that chance when doing so means there is almost a 100% chance it will result in the victim getting stabbed. B) IT'S NOT A MOVIE, you don't "shoot to wound." That's insane. C) If the person about to be stabbed to death doesn't have a knife and isn't attacking the other person, it's not a knife fight it's an ATTEMPTED MURDER.D) Age??? How old was the girl SHE WAS TRYING TO MURDER?? You know when her life would have had as much value as the other girl? IF SHE HAD NOT BEEN TRYING TO MURDER SOMEONE!!! Your argument seems to be based on a combination of movies you've seen and the insane calculation that it's the job of police to let someone get stabbed and killed to avoid hurting the murderer.

well of course you're absolutely right. what was i thinking? i now realize the cops are not there to let someone get stabbed by a child. i was going to express my surprise and outrage that they didn't jump in to help with the murder, but you have saved me, ageofreason. thanks you thank you a million times. is there a fan club or something i can join? (as you can see, I'm easily swayed by anything i see on tv or read on this site). eagerly awaiting your considered reply...

So it also appears that you believe that if you get stabbed to death by a 16 year old you are somehow less dead than if you get stabbed to death by a 30 year old?

I mean, at one point you tried to claim "she was just a teenager in a rage" as if that was an actual excuse to MURDER someone. That's pretty psychotic.

i said "she was a teenager in a rage". it's a fact. i didn't say it was an excuse to murder. those are words you're trying to put in my mouth, but try as hard as you like, i never said it or meant any such thing. i'm not you, and believe me, i don't think like you.

Oooohhhh. Ok. Then what, exactly, WAS the point of you saying "she was a teenager in a rage.?" By all means, what WAS the point you were trying to make with that statement then? I'm all ears.

Yet I notice you won't clarify, will you? If I have "no aptitude for listening" then go ahead and correct me. What, exactly DID you mean when you said she was "just a 16 year old in a rage?" What WAS the point you were trying to make when you said that? I know you won't give a real answer....you'll just come up with another version of "You a dummy dumb dumb head," but I'll give you the chance any way. What DID you mean by that comment?

The cop was literally ten feet from her; what was he supposed to do, say "say go go gadget arms" and taze her? He made a quick decision and did what he had to do.

you weren't there, and fyi, that gadget arms thing is not real. it's a movie/cartoon device for entertaining kids. cops don't have that.

Yes, my comment was cartoonish, but I would say your worldview (though it seems very nice and empathetic) is somewhat a fantasy. The world can be a cruel dark place sometimes, and one doesn't always have time to talk things out. If that cop hadn't done what he did, the other girl would probably be dead.

i'm not at all fantasy oriented. you're projecting a perspective on me that's incorrect. i do have an empathetic worldview, as i think we all should have, and one of my principles is we don't kill kids. you believe that murder would probably have happened. i believe that since the girl in pink was in a defensive position and since Bryant was holding a knife rather than a gun, the police response was inappropriate. we'll never know what would have happened, and maybe it would have been murder. maybe the girl in pink started it. why was she being attacked? remember that Bryant called it in. witness interviews will probably give a better picture.

Ha, I'm definitely not projecting, I'll leave that for the professionals around here, who's names we won't mention. And yes, who knows what could of happened, and as we find out more, we will be able to all make a better assessment of the situation. But I disagree with you about not killing "kids", because they were teenagers; a recent sociological categorization of the modern world. This so called middle category has prolonged the growth of many people in the West, often far into their 20s, f**k, these days, far into their 30s, so much so that many are actually proud of the fact that their actions and thoughts are as simple as a child's (not to mention how these grown "children" dress themselves). Sure the world is not so harsh as it once was (though that will soon probably change as this country gets more polarized) but we can't let people off the hook just because they are 'kids'. And no, I'm not arguing for children to go back to the factories or anything, just saying how I see it. Cheers

maybe you'd feel differently if you worked with teenagers every day. i don't hear anyone for her to be let off the hook. just not killed.

Perhaps, but you could also say, maybe you would feel differently if you were that cop and you only had a split second to make a decision. It's easy for us to judge from the safety of our computers, but in the heat of moment, decisions have to be made, and they're not always pretty ones.

“Maybe the girl in the pink started it. Why was she being attacked?”

Victim blaming. And according to this, as long as we’re REALLY mad at someone, we can stab them. Is that really what you believe?

Tasers have a nasty tendency to fail to subdue suspect at the worst of times, and this officer did not have the time to second guess himself in the heat of the moment when one girl had already been stabbed by Makhia.

that's not a bad argument, but how about tackling her or shooting her non-fatally? if he had time to position for a shot, he had time to think. don't they train for dealing with teenagers?
0 ups, 3y
Like I said, a girl had already been stabbed by Makhia before she moved on to attack the girl in pink so there was no time to second guess himself. However, after it had already happened, I’m sure he’d agree he could’ve subdued her non lethally if he had time to think before acting but he didn’t in this situation. Too much happening at once, ya know?

He’s actually lucky he didn’t hit the girl he was trying to save tbh and it didn’t like he had time to aim, draw his gun, yell a command to drop the knife and when she ignored him to go after the other girl he fired.

That’s the excuse you’re giving her, “she was a teenager in a rage”, that’s not a valid excuse for an adult to try and kill somebody, why do you think it should be for a teenager? Another thing, even had the police officer had not drawn his weapon and chose to subdue her, that’s more time than she needed to kill the girl in pink and be charged for murder. I don’t care for her reasons for attempting to stab someone, anger is never a justification for killing anyone.

hopefully you're not a police officer of any kind. teenagers have their whole lives in front of them. they get angry and very angry and some of them are stupid. i didn't say it was an excuse for trying to kill someone, but neither is it reason to kill them. it was just the apparent fact of the situation. now you've convicted her of a murder she hadn't committed, and you don't know that she would have. me suggesting that she be taken down non-fatally is the thoughtful position. am i expecting too much of you to imagine it was possible?
0 ups, 3y,

Hopefully you’re not a police officer either. And I don’t know about you but I’ve never got so angry with someone that I wanted to try and take their lives, I mean I have been angry before even as a teenager but never have I pulled on knife on another person to try and kill them. I can imagine many different non fatal scenarios that involve Makhia being subdued and handcuffed but unfortunately also would lead to the death of the girl in pink because I took too long to stop her assailant from ending her life if I were a police officer. It’s tragic that Makhia was killed, but I don’t believe there was any other way her death could’ve been avoided.

She was a teenager in a rage? Sorry, that's not an excuse for attempted murder. Never has been, never will be. They could have done better? You didn't even watch the video, they could not have "done better." They saved the innocent life, THAT'S THEIR JOB! We didn't see what came before? That's completely irrelevant. The girl in pink was unarmed and NOT attempting to harm her. Nothing that happened before makes that justified. Just stop it. Attempting to justify trying to murder someone while attempting to demonize the person who prevented it is DISGUSTING!
