Who was the idiot who said the cop should have fired warning shots in the air?

Shots in the air are NOT risky, as the energy is lost and the range where is can land it way too big to be risky.
But the suggestion was to fire into the ground, like police away used to do 50 years ago.
This was a child and would have been frozen into a contracted ball by the loud noise of a close by gunshot into the ground.
You apparently have no clue what "rage" is.
That gal with the knife would have killed the girl in pink, she would not have even heard the gunshot.
Please stop posting nonsense. Killing the girl with the knife was the only practical option.
Why don't you post a few ideas how to stop the young blacks from knifing each other?
What's the "root cause" of all these knife killings?

Amost certainly NO.

A more proficient police officer would have been able to remedy the situation so that it didn't result in death.

Death was the outcome and that can never be seen as a successful handling of the situation.

Once again it simply boils down to bad policing that's due to a lack of police concern for black lives.

It would be a near certainty that had the knife wielder been a white child and the intended victim a black child, the outcome would have been different and more desirable.

Americans can't understand this and so the fight to reform their police will be long, which will most likely result in police pushing the envelope on their right to kill to even greater heights.

Are you fucking shitting us? You could NEVER be a cop and if you were your partner is fucked and you're dead.

Explain to all of us what should have occurred with details. Same with the other PROGS who chose not justified.

Fucking morons.

Wrong.
If the cops had not showed up, then what would the likely outcome have been?
Nothing.

These situations happen often, and almost never is any harm caused.
Humans just rarely if ever cause bodily harm with an edged weapon, especially a teen.

Police almost always make every situation worse, and in fact they illegal cause most of the harm in the world, like no-knock warrants, the War on Drugs, asset forfeiture, erc.
If there were no police, the world would be vastly improved, like it was 100 years ago.

Wrong. :abgg2q.jpg:

Nothing. She'd have stabbed a black woman to death thus we can conclude while you're a progressive black lives don't matter.

That's not what happened when LE arrived. There were no physical attacks going on when they rolled up.
I beg to differ. As soon as they got out of the police car the gal with the knife knocked another girl down and then went after the girl wearing pink. Watch the videos again.

If only we could judge America from the attitudes on this forum? I have to give America the benefit of the doubt and think that this 90% yes answer is only a reflection of an extremist fringe who are immersed in racism, hate, and a need to see more violence.

It needs to be tested somehow and maybe a comparison to other similar forums would be a way?

Could a lot of this be because the US has been defanged by China and there's no way to stay the lead aggressor in the world withe M.A.D. detterent to more new US led wars?

Encouraging the extra rabid frothing at the mouth is starting to produce results.
Anyone who believes a woman who is about to plunge a knife into someone doesn't deserve to be shot is insane.
The problem is the girl with the knife is the one who called 911 to protect her from the thugs as she was defending her property, life & home with that knife.

Maybe she didn't see the police roll up while she was focused on fighting off multiple attackers. The officer did not have a chance to sort the mess out & saved the criminals from the victim. It is a very sad situation.
She wasn't fighting off anyone. She went after the other girl and tried to stab her.

There were wild swinging motions, not once looking like there were ever near to intended to make contact.
Stab it a lunge with the point.
Never happened.
Not once was there ever a stabbing motion.

A stab is dangeous with a knife long enough to contact organs.
A swing is superficial and could not likely even get through the clothing, much less skin, bones, and other layers of protection.

You're going from plain wrong to really stupid.
Two days before, in Cincinnati, OH, a 13-year old killed another 13-year old with a knife.
So you are posting nonsense. Two "stabbings" in OH in the same week. The police stopped the 2nd murder, your welcome.

That is just the tail end of the video.
Watch the whole thing.
The knife weilder was the innocent victim who actually lived there, trying to defend herself from a mob.

She was getting close to her head area with the knife when the police shoots her to stop it.

How can you miss the obvious Rigby5?

IMHO there is no justification for the police to allow anyone to murder an unarmed person.
The girl with the knife is attempting to murder an unarmed girl, totally unacceptable.
Anyone who blames the cop for anything other than doing his job "protecting" the unarmed girl is a racist gaslighting POS.

View attachment 482782

The Biden admin just can't stop blaming cops instead of blaming criminals!? The GOP has lots of ammo for 2022 and 2024.

Except the "knife wielding girl" was not attacking ANYONE when they shot and killed her. She was on her back, on the ground, being kicked by a large man. And they shot her 4 times in the chest.

The police didn't even try to find out what was going on in this picture, they just pulled up and shot this girl 4 times in the chest. As the story is coming out, it appears that this girl may have been defending herself against the people who were attacking her. This was a 15 year old girl, and the people attacking her were adults.

THE POLICE DIDN'T BOTHER TO ASSESS THE SITUATION, OR ASK ANYONE WHAT WAS GOING ON, THEY JUST PULLED UP, JUMPED OUT AND SHOT THE GIRL ON HER BACK, ON THE GROUND IN LESS THAN 5 SECONDS.

HOW DID THE POLICE MANAGE TO ARREST THE PARKLAND SHOOTER WHO WAS ARMED AND DANGEROUS WITHOUT SHOOTING AND KILLING HIM ON SIGHT? OR DYLAN ROOFF? OR THE ATLANTA SPA SHOOTER? THEY HELPED KYLE RITTENHOUSE UP AND DIDN'T EVEN TAKE HIS GUN, AFTER HE THEY WATCHED HIM SHOOT 3 PEOPLE.

HOW COME ALL OF THESE ARMED AND DANGEROUS WHITE KILLERS GET ARRESTED WITHOUT BEING SHOT ON SIGHT BY POLICE.
1. That was a white girl that Bryant knocked down before attacking the girl in pink, just as the cops got there.
2. Watch the video again. The knife was going for the neck of the girl in pink. The officer undoubtedly saved her life.
3. here is the video again, watch it this time

Joy Behar said it on "The View". She is apparently very stupid.

Wrong.
Fifty years ago police always fired a warning shot if there was time, and it was always a good ideal and never once resulted in a worse outcome.

It looks like it from just a video. I'm assuming that tazing was not an option.

Agree that it was a justified shooting. No way that officer had time to taz. Absolutely a split second decision and unfortunately someone lost their life. Glad it wasn't one of the Innocent people standing around or the officer.
MAGA
The Officer saved the guilty thugs who were attacking Ma'Khia Bryant's home that she was defending with a knife.

That officer is also only reacting to the situation that is happening right in front of him. We do not know if the child was being physically attacked before this. And let's say for the sake of argument that she was, what was happening in the video that we are seeing is that the child was the aggressor and was the only one with a weapon.

Upon the officers arrival she could have de-escalated her "defense " and differed to the officer. She did not she continued her attack and in fact ramped it up. The officer had but a split second to make a decision and unfortunately someone lost their life. It could have been 2 casualties if he would have delayed.

Could have been, but not likely.
People rarely intend actual harm when wildly swinging a knife like that.
She did not even seem to know how to hold a knife in a way capable of causing death.

And even if the knife had made a wound, it had almost zero chance of being deadly.

While in contract, 4 hollow point shots from a .40S&W is absolutely assured of being deadly to a 16 year old girl.
And 1 shot would have been sufficient.
In fact, 1 shot into the ground likely would have been sufficient.

1 shot into the ground would have been sufficient huh. And if not and the girl stabbed the other lady then the cop wasn't doing his job, right. So if he stabs her everyone knows that she in no way could have killed her because she wasn't proficient or trained on how to hold a knife, really? Thank god you weren't on duty in Columbus that day or there would have been 2 casualties.

Now you are spewing baloney, the pink girl she attacked was standing near the car with a cat in her hands not being a threat at all.

I was only replying to your statement of "Glad it wasn't one of the Innocent people standing around" that got killed.

I don't fault the officer, he did what he had to do.

I think he should have used his siren as he arrived or shouted "Police - Drop it" instead, he said "hey, hey, hey, get down, get down, get down" & fired 4 shots. To MaKhia Bryant the Officers voice may have just been another in the crowd. She was focused on fighting off thugs & may not have noticed police if he didn't blare siren as he arrived or yelled police.

It's just a sad situation, but the Officer should not be charged with any crime.

Gotcha, I can roll with what your saying there. But it was a fast developing situation and we really have no idea yet if she had indeed been provoked into this sad situation.

Silly.
It was on over hand grip, swinging side to side.
That would be impossible to reach the head area, and she never got close.

The only way a knife attack could be deadly is un underhand grip, a direct lunge below the ribcage, pointed upward.
Nothing else really had any chance of being deadly.
An the knife wielder never looked at all like she was intending any real harm.
It was all theatrics.
She could easily have made contact, but never actually tried.

The girl with the knife in the air going for the girl in pink's neck was justifiably shot.
The girl with the knife is the murderer, the girl in pink's life was saved.
The cop is a hero.

So the knife wielder pushed one attacker down first in the video.
She had the knife then.
How come the woman knocked down was not cut?
The knife wielder lived there?
Did the other 2 women live there?
No, they were attackers from elsewhere.

You are in total delusion here, since the woman was within a foot of the girls head with the knife when she got shot stopping it.

I just did a swing with the knife imitating her movements, it was easy to reach the target.

You are making a total fool of yourself here.

Stop posting nonsense. Here is a photo showing the murder in-progress, until the cop stopped her.
