Well, why should police bother any more in black or Latino communities? Close them off and let them have at it. And she isn't the only one excusing such knife fights.
Black illogic at work.

A Black Lives Matter agitator on Wednesday made a surprising argument on social media that turned some heads.
“Teenagers have been having fights including fights involving knives for eons,” tweeted longtime activist Bree Newsome. “We do not need police to address these situations by showing up to the scene & using a weapon against one of the teenagers. Y’all need help. I mean that sincerely.”
Newsome was defending the behavior of Ma’Khia Bryant, the Columbus, Ohio 16-year-old who was fatally shot by police after she attempted to stab two people with a knife Tuesday afternoon.
Although the bodycam footage shows strong evidence that the shooting was justified, Democrat politicians and Black Lives Matter activists like Newsome have sought to vilify the police response.
“Everyone should be frightened that the ruling white elite have done such a thoroughly successful job of not only disconnecting us from the means of basic self-sufficiency but also convincing us we need armed white officers to manage our children & communities. Frightening,” Newsome said in a subsequent tweet.
Newsome is best known for climbing the flag pole at the South Carolina Statehouse to cut down a Confederate flag in 2015. She his since gained notoriety by expressing her crackpot ideas on Twitter, where she goes by the handle, DEFUND & ABOLISH POLICE, REFUND OUR COMMUNITIES.
Last week, Newsome condoned rioting and looting as “legitimate” responses to what she called “state violence” against blacks and other minorities.
“I’m definitely in the camp of defending rioting & looting as a legitimate, politically-informed response to state violence,’ Newsome tweeted last Tuesday. ‘I’ve tweeted on this topic many times & I’m always willing to engage people in good faith discussion of why I hold that position.”
“Far from making the argument people think it does, the hand-wringing over property damage & looting in situations like this only highlights how this society treats Black people as less than human,” the activist tweeted.
