Wait a second, what is going on here? Why is the White House prejudging this case or suggesting this was a racist shooting.
“Let me just say, since you gave me the opportunity, the killing of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant by the Columbus police is tragic. She was a child,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday. “We know that police violence disproportionately impacts Black and Latino people and communities and that Black women and girls like Black men and boys experience higher rates of police violence.
“We also know that there are particular vulnerabilities that children in foster care like Ma’Khia face,” she said. “And her death came . . . just as America was hopeful of a step forward after the traumatic and exhausting trial of Derek Chauvin and the verdict that was reached.”
The girl was attacking people with a knife. Here is the video.
