Jen Psaki baselessly and disgracefully racialized the killing in Columbus
And yet this is what Psaki, the spokeswoman for the world's greatest power and leading democracy, said: "She was a child. We're thinking of her friends and family in the communities that are hurting and grieving her loss. We know that police violence disproportionately impacts black and Latino people in communities and that black women and girls, like black men and boys, experience higher rates of police violence."

"Believe your own eyes" — that was the prosecutor's final admonition to the jury in the Derek Chauvin trial. And indeed, the evidence of their own eyes was likely the reason the jury members didn't accept the defense's case that there was "reasonable doubt" about Chauvin's guilt. Instead, they convicted him on all charges.

The same admonition should be governing the public response to the horrible event in Columbus, Ohio, that transpired just as the Chauvin verdict was being announced. But it isn't.

No less than the press secretary of the president of the United States went before the public Wednesday and all but explicitly suggested what had happened in Ohio was an illegitimate, racist police killing.

Believe your own eyes, Jen Psaki . Watch the body-cam footage that shows 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant charging first one fellow teenager, then a second. The second girl was slammed against a car, at which point Bryant began to swing her right arm — with a knife in her hand.

The police officer whose camera recorded the event had told her to "get down," and she hadn't done so. He had only a split second to react as she aimed the knife and readied to swing. He fired.

Believe your own eyes. She had a knife. Had she not been stopped, that knife would have gone into the body of the girl on the car. The police officer was witness to a violent act in real time and interceded the only way he could.

At the five-second mark in the video, the officer has gotten out of his car and is asking someone on the street, "What's going on?" Two seconds — two seconds — later, the first girl being chased by Bryant falls to the ground.

"Hey! Hey!" the cop says at the nine-second mark, as he spots Bryant turning toward the second girl. At 10-second mark, he says with great urgency, "Get down! Get down! Get down!"

It's now the 12-second mark. The cop has removed his gun from his holster. At 13 seconds, Bryant's arm is drawn. At 14, we see Bryant fall to the ground.

What this means is that the officer found himself in the middle of a violent confrontation and had to act . . . within nine seconds.

Count off nine seconds. Out of a car. Asks for information. Suddenly a girl falls in front of him, chased by Bryant and her knife. He tells her to get down before removing his weapon and has it in his hand in time to stop her from stabbing the girl against the car.

I've watched the body-cam footage 25 times. I can't imagine what else the police officer could possibly have done given the urgency of the moment — except allow Bryant to stab the other girl.

My own eyes suggested to me, and to the world, that Chauvin was guilty of something — though it was certainly beyond my knowledge then or now, as I wasn't on the jury, to know precisely what. Likewise, my eyes say this was a horrible, tragic, terrible event in which a police officer may have saved a life in imminent peril.

And yet this is what Psaki, the spokeswoman for the world's greatest power and leading democracy, said: "She was a child. We're thinking of her friends and family in the communities that are hurting and grieving her loss. We know that police violence disproportionately impacts black and Latino people in communities and that black women and girls, like black men and boys, experience higher rates of police violence."

Then teen is seen allegedly holding a knife in the bodycam video. Columbus Police Department via W

I don't think my eyes have been blinded by the cop's whiteness. The girl he saved was black, just like Ma'Khia Bryant. She was a teenager, it seems, just like Ma'Khia Bryant. She has a family, just like Ma'Khia Bryant. And she wasn't swinging a knife at Ma'Khia Bryant. She was defenseless — until the law-enforcement officer defended her.

Who speaks for her and the countless Americans whose lives are saved every day by the intervention of law enforcement? Who will speak out for those who have saved them?

What is Jen Psaki and the msm focused on?  The knife wielding maniac that was shot and killed.

The officer was completely justified in using deadly force.

Curious as to whether he was carrying a TASER. That would have been a better choice.

From the angle, if his bullet was through and through both girls could have been hit.

A through and through would have to have been a full metal jacketed round; I don't know anyone that carries full metal jacketed rounds. Hollow points are recommended for any pistol carrier. Hollow points go in to intended target and come apart or mushroom; they're designed not to go through.

I can’t either. I guess he was supposed to just let her stab the other girl? Then get back in his car and go get lunch? That appears to be what even the people on the scene wanted. Immediately, they started yelling at the cop for shooting the person about to commit murder. Amazing.

Unfortunately many racists (not all) are attracted to the position of police officer for the power they perceive, they can carry guns and order people around. 

I used to be involved with a medium sized police department, couple hundred officers there.  I knew most of them, and was more than a little surprised to discover between 5 and 10 of the officers white nationalists, KKK, or even Nazis.  One of the sergeants, was even known to have decorated his house with Nazi paraphernalia, yet was a very nice guy around me.  I would never have believed it if I hadn't been in his house once and seen it for myself.

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.

IF the cop had not shot the aggressor and let her murder another black teenage girl in front of him, he'd still be the criminal to these loons

An even bigger deal were the comments of  Benjamin Crump (George Floyd Lead Attorney), who falsely tweeted that the Columbus girl was unarrmed and the New York Times edited his tweet to cover for him:

"On Tuesday, after the Columbus, Ohio, police shot and killed Ma’Khia Bryant, 16, who had threatened two other teenage girls with a knife, but before body-cam footage of the incident was revealed, high-profile attorney Benjamin Crump, who had led the legal team that represented George Floyd’s family, leaped to a conclusion, tweeting that the Columbus police had “killed an unarmed 15yo black girl named Makhia Bryant.”

In a report on the incident, The New York Times decided to   sanitize Crump’s tweet , quoting him but leaving out the part of the tweet where Crump said Bryant was unarmed."

Seems Democrats and the left don't care if African Americans kill each other.

The cop should have waited for them to get through trying to kill each other; and then arrested them both. OK, maybe only the one wielding the knife would have been arrested. The other girl would have been bleeding out while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.

Not sure what all you conservatives have your panties in a bunch about here, Jen Psaki did not say the shooting was somehow unjustified.

"She was a child." True.

"We're thinking of her friends and family in the communities that are hurting and grieving her loss." True, even though this girl was apparently at fault, it's still sad that a 16 year old girl had to die and some are asking why a taser wasn't employed instead, but few if any are saying the shooting was unjustified.

"We know that police violence disproportionately impacts black and Latino people in communities and that black women and girls, like black men and boys, experience higher rates of police violence." This is also true.

Nothing she said was false or indicted that she felt the shooting was unjustified. The faux outrage from conservatives is just a bunch of hot air simply because they don't like admitting that there is systemic racism in our justice system regardless of whether this case was an example of it or not.

Most of the time I don't bother though because his writings do take a lot of concentration and tend to rattle on.

"Black Lives Matter activist and communist Bree Newsome condemns the “ruling white elite” who have convinced blacks that blacks “need armed white officers” to manage their communities and children. She says it’s “frightening,” “absolutely frightening.” It was her response to the shooting in Columbus.

Referencing the attempted stabbing of one black girl by another, Newsome said, “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.”

They have trouble making any convincing arguments FOR Psaki's comments, so attacking the source of the article is their go-to method.

That is exactly what I want out readers to see.

They may not want to comment, but just wait until they get in the privacy of the voting booth!

There is so little opportunity that we keep seeing record turnouts!  Maybe we can get Stacey Abrams sister to once again rule that out of state voters can vote in state elections again?

Record turnouts resulted in hundreds of laws proposed all across the country to do nothing but restrict that turnout.

Were in response to the changes that took place during the 2020 election. Many state legislatures allowed it to happen. Democrats wanted to make those "covid changes" permanent. Their push for HR 1 is nothing less than a federal takeover of congressional elections.

How does the Georgia law restrict turnout?

Specifically, not broad generalities that can't be verified.

It is so easy to just claim that laws do one thing or another, but a completely different thing to actually be able to prove it when asked.

That's exactly what the republicans are doing -restricting access.  Voter suppression, plain and simple.

TOO MANY DEMOCRATS ARE VOTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How about finally backing up one of your claims. Never seen that happen before.

How the new law limits voting

It shrinks the window for voters to request mail ballots.   Rather than allowing voters to request ballots six months from Election Day, the new law says voters can start requesting ballots 78 days out; counties can begin sending ballots to voters just 29 days before Election Day, rather than the previous 49 days. It also sets an earlier cutoff date for ballot application requests.

Critics say any mail delays with these shorter periods could lead to voters not getting ballots on time, or not being able to return them in time. But proponents of the law say voters simply don’t need the 180 days they used to have to request ballots – and that moving up the cutoff date makes it less likely voters will receive ballots too late to get them back in time to be counted.

Counties and the state can send mail ballot applications only to voters who request them   (as opposed to simply sending every registered voter a ballot application) and cannot fill in information ahead of time.

New voter ID requirements.   Voters who cast mail ballots will have to provide one of several forms of identification. This provision — which replaces a signature match previously used to confirm voters’ identities — is one of the most controversial because critics say it is likely to disproportionately affect Black voters.

Voters don’t have to provide a copy of the identification, but could for example provide a driver’s license number, social security number or other acceptable identification.

A limit on the number of ballot drop boxes during early voting . It essentially limits the number of drop boxes in each county to one per early-voting site, or one for every 100,000 voters in the county, whichever number is smaller. And the drop boxes can’t be conveniently spread over the county, for example, in places where there aren’t in-person early-voting locations; they all have to be located either in a county election office or at an early-voting precinct location. They have to be indoors, which critics say make them less accessible and could lead to crowds where voters are already congregated,

Shortened early voting in runoff elections.   Instead of a minimum of three weeks of early voting in runoffs, early voting in runoffs will be held in a single Monday-Friday period.

State lawmakers get much more power over county and local elections   (and Republicans have decisive majorities in both the state Senate and the state House). The law states that the General Assembly will select the chair of the state elections board, rather than the board being chaired by the Georgia secretary of state — an elected position. The chair is supposed to be nonpartisan. The state election board can investigate county election boards and has the power to suspend county election superintendents — though the law limits the state board to suspending four at a time.

You might remember Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who became the target of his own party’s ire after President Donald Trump put pressure on him over the results of the 2020 election; this provision seems like a direct reaction to that, ensuring partisan state lawmakers can control the election process more directly.

A ban on handing out food and water within 150 feet of a polling place , or within 25 feet of any voter. Republicans say this is aimed at stopping outside groups from influencing voters; Democrats say it’s supposed to make it harder for people to wait in long lines, particularly on hot or cold days. Election officials are permitted to set up water stations — but they’re not required to do so.

OK, so how does any of that cut and paste from an opinion piece answer my question.

Here's the answer.

It doesn't.
