The unthinking Twitter world (but I repeat myself) is ablaze with unwarranted outrage about another black person shot by a police officer. However, from everything I've seen, including the bodycam footage, it was righteous shooting.
The facts are simple. The police roll up on a disturbance and while trying to figure out what is going on, a young female starts swinging a knife, apparently trying to injure another female nearby. One shot is fired. The knife-wielding female drops to the ground. You can see news coverage here.
Below, a screen grab of what the police officer saw the instant before he fired his weapon.
The knife is plainly in her hand, and she is attacking the person in pink. One shot ended it.
Of course, Columbus, OH, is in turmoil right now. The agitators have decided to take the side of a knife-wielding idiot who was actively engaged in trying to hurt people over the side of law and order. The girl's Momma is all over the news, telling us what a sweet person she was. Maybe Momma should have spent more time on anger-management issues and teaching her not to play with knives.
I have no sympathy for these fools. It was a good shoot, plain and simple.
