Another city, another incident.


In an unprecedented move, Columbus police showed body camera footage of the shooting of a 16-year-old girl by a Columbus police officer just hours after the incident on the Southeast Side.

To all those that idolized law enforcement here... you can sleep well tonight. As you can see nothing has changed... nothing will change. Police will keep killing citizens... specially those that you don’t like.

As of last week, U.S. law enforcement officers had killed 261 people since Jan 1, 2021.

The MSM "experts" said after the Chauvin-Floyd verdict yesterday that this was the number 1 problem in America.

Last week, GUNS was the #1 Problem in America.

Three weeks ago, Climate Change was the #1 Problem in America.

Six weeks ago, Wuhan Flu was the #1 Problem in America.

12 weeks ago, Trump was the #1 Problem for America.

CRAZIES are never content, because they never reach their goals, because they're CRAZY.

Hmmm, in that context, America seems to be the problem. Perhaps she's sick.

Id agree that they certainly have a claim to the blame. Although they keep turning a profit due to viewership, listeners etc

I don't idolize law enforcement.

I'm just a person who can recognize a #ty situation.

The police didn't do anything wrong in this case. Being 16 does not make a human being not a deadly threat. Being black does not mean the officer is racist or targeting her for being black. A knife is as deadly a weapon as a gun.

You just don't want to get granular about the reasons why a shooting like this might happen.

What if I tell you the girl had a knife because she was protecting herself from being jumped by a group of girls? Let me also remind you that this is an altercation that involved a group of teenagers.

Ok, let me remind you that your knee-jerk racist claim fell short those goalposts got moved.

Alrighth then.

Well since they were teenagers I suppose LEO'S were just magically out of their jurisdiction? Were they supposed to laugh and watch it play out? Not following your logic here.

So the young lady was defending herself?
Is that what happened?

Just defending herself and shot by a cop?

To the contrary I’m all for investigating and get to the details of what happened. It’s being reported that the girl that call the cops was the girl that ended up dead and she had a knife because she was protecting herself from being jumped. Now... initial reports can be wrong and I admit that.

What needs to happen it’s a full investigation of the events and what was the cop thought process that led him to apply deadly force on a group of teenagers.

BTW... having seen the video I can’t believe he discharged the weapon as he did seeing that there was a person right next to his intended target.
