“We Know That Police Violence Disproportionately Impacts Black People” – Psaki When Asked About Deadly Police Shooting of Knife-Wielding Ma’Kiyah Bryant (VIDEO)

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday was asked about the officer-involved shooting death of 15-year-old Ma’Kiyah Bryant.

Columbus, Ohio – As reported earlier, officers were called to the 3100 block of Legion Lane just after 4:30 PM Tuesday for a stabbing and a shots fired call at 4:45 PM.

The police shot Ma’kiyah Bryant, a 15-year-old girl who was attempting to stab another person.

The police bodycam footage showed Makiyah Bryant attempting to stab someone as the officer acted swiftly and opened fire, fatally striking her.

Instead of defending the police officer for saving a teen’s life by acting quickly, Psaki immediately went into a diatribe about how police violence disproportionately impacts black and Hispanic people.

“Our focus is on working to address systemic racism and implicit bias head on,” Psaki said.

Not a word about Ma’Kayiah Bryant brandishing a knife and attempting to stab at least two people.
