Columbus, Ohio — Columbus police released body camera footage and two 911 calls in fatal shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant that happened on Tuesday, April 20, 2021. Police say they were called to the scene around 4:30 p.m. on a report of someone attempting to stab others at a home. The bodycam footage shows that as soon as police pulled up, Bryant tackles another female to the ground and had what appeared to be a knife in her hand. Bryant can then be seen charging at another female while raising the purported knife in the air, at which point the officer opened fire. The officer, identified as Nicholas Reardon, fired his weapon several times while Bryant and another girl were struggling against the side of a parked car. A knife could be seen next to Bryant’s body after the shooting.

  1. Русский нетолерантный комментарий: Огромная выкормленная лоснистая "угнетенная" лошадь с ножом кидается на людей по меньше, а её называют ребеночком, которого застрелил коп-рассист. Коп несколько раз кричит "остановись", но огромная агрессивная лошадь не обращает никакого внимания, хотя всю жизнь живет в Америке, и знает, что такое коп, приказывающий остановиться с оружием в руках. Родители лошади, зажигающие на вечеринке с ножами, будто это какие то фавеллы, куда ходить опасно для жизни. Родители, которые пинают других детишек, негодующие, что коп ввязался в их прогрессивную вечеринку и спас несколько жизни ценой одной безумной жизни. И всего бы этого мы не увидели, и копа бы распяли, если бы не камера. Америка обезумела, это сложно для осознания.

  2. Literally nothing of value was lost. Hearing Ma’Killas family after she was attempting to murder two girls just goes to show she wasn’t going to be anything good in this world.

  3. All the adult's voices heard in the video and than here comes the neighbor from across the street. And none of you'll couldn't break that up?? That's 😥 just sad. All you'll should be charged with aggregate assault with a deadly weapon, ( because that was your child holding the knife* while trying to stab not one but two other children) child neglect ( you didn't do anything to stop them from fighting) child abuse ( father actions are shown on the video) disturbing the peace ( all that dam noise) !!!!! 4-WHAT???

  4. This is sad… but at the end of the day that officer had a job to do. He took a live to save a live. Her family streaming you shoot a child, that child had a knife – why you all wasn't streaming put the knife down??? There's been officers in the pass who has gotten it wrong but this officer got it right! And than pushed for the recorded video to be released so everybody would see what took place and judge for themselves. Yes, I'm serious!

  5. All I see is a bunch of mouthy cowards that were standing around not doing sht.

    That LEO wasn't and isn't having a fkn party over this, but he did what was necessary. Had he not done anything, those morons would have been crying that he let that chick stab the other one.

    Fk those clowns standing around yelling.

    Justified shooting 100%

  6. So none of the civilians there decided to step in they had plenty time before the officers showed up to stop it from getting violent. It's sad she had to die but u can't attack someone especially not in front of a cops. And the dad or step dad didn't deesclate either he kicked the girl who was being attacked first in the head. None of u racist whites better say where's blm because this is just as justified as the cop who shot Ashley babbit at the capital

  7. Officer: She charged her with a knife

    Guy: She didn’t charge you with the knife

    Does that even make since to y’all? This officer literally seen a knife and saw her charge at someone with it and shot her to disarm her. He didn’t shoot randomly. 2 women were fighting and the shots only hit 1 person. It’s unfortunate that she had to die that way but this officer did what he had to do.
