The Case for Teenage Fights Including Knives

A Columbus police officer made a split second decision regarding teenage fights including knives. He shot and killed 16 year old Ma’Khia Bryant as the teenager was in the process of thrusting a knife into the body of another girl.

The event was tragic. And the outrage was immediate. And peculiar. Stephen L. Miller compiled a few of those responses in The Spectator:

‘Teenagers have been having fights including fights involving knives for eons. 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.’

Bree Newsome, Activist

“A Black teenage girl named Ma’Khia Bryant was killed because a police officer immediately decided to shoot her multiple times in order to break up a knife fight. Demand accountability.  Fight for justice.”

Valerie Jarrett, Former aid to President Obama

Meanwhile, former NAACP leader Cornell Brooks brushed it all off as “a schoolyard fight.”
