OMAR: ‘Ohio Was Visited by a Tragedy of a Young Woman Whose Life Was Taken by Columbus Police’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.23.21

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar weighed-in on the police-shooting of a teenage girl in Ohio as she held a knife and seemingly lunged at other individuals Thursday; labeling the event a “tragedy.”

“Just like we’ve been visited by tragedy here in Minnesota often, Columbus, Ohio was visited by a tragedy of a young woman whose life was taken by Columbus police,” said Omar at the funeral of Daunte Wright.

Former advisor to Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett weighed-in this week on the police-shooting of a 16-year-old girl who was holding a knife; saying officers should “use the minimum force necessary.”

“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,” posted Jarrett.

“Just because an officer can use deadly force does not mean the officer should. Let’s spend more time responsibly training them to de-escalate violent situations, and if force is required, use the minimum force necessary,” she added.

 

 

Donald Trump Jr. called-out NBA legend LeBron James after the star athlete warned a Columbus police officer “You’re Next” following the shooting of a 16-year-old girl holding a knife.

“And some people still wonder why the NBA is hemorrhaging viewers???” asked Trump Jr.

Congresswoman and so-called ‘Squad Member’ Cori Bush responded to the fatal police-involved shooting in Columbus this week; saying a “16-year-old baby” was “killed by police.”

“Ma’Khia Bryant was a 16-year-old baby. She was shot and killed by police yesterday. This is why no single verdict can deliver justice. Convictions don’t save lives. Convictions don’t end violent policing. Stop killing us and our babies. Stop,” posted Bush on Twitter.

LeBron James reacted to a growing backlash on social media this week after tweeting, then deleting, a message to a Columbus cop involved in a police shooting; saying he was “damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police.”

“ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself! Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail!” posted the NBA star.

“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate -This isn’t about one officer.  it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY,” he added.

Original Story:

NBA legend LeBron James issued a public statement to the Columbus, Ohio police officer who shot a teenager Tuesday night after she allegedly attacked another minor with a knife; telling the cop “You’re Next.”

 

James deleted the message after users on social media complained about the veiled threat.

“Ma’Khia Bryant, a young Black girl, was shot and killed by a Columbus police officer Tuesday afternoon while yielding a knife and attempting to stab another female, and her death has since sparked national outrage,” reports WKYC.

“The Akron native and current Los Angeles Laker has since received nearly 5,000 replies to his tweet, many arguing about whether or not the shooting of Bryant was justified,” adds the news outlet.
