Officer who saved the black life of Bryant’s intended victim: “At the time I fired my weapon, I was in fear for the life of the female in pink”
Despite the best efforts of the Joe “I am the Democratic Party” Biden, the infotainment media “news” industry, and BLM, the Ohio police officer who saved the life of knife-wielding Ma’Khia Bryant’s intended victim has been cleared of criminal wrong-doing in the case.
When Columbus police officer Nicholas Reardon fatally shot Bryant, she was in the process of reaching back with a knife in her hand, apparently about to plunge the blade into her intended victim, whom she had backed against a car.

As always, the entire activist left collectively lost their minds before they had any details of the incident beyond the skin color of the people involved: Bryant was black, and Reardon is white. That Reardon almost certainly saved the life of Bryant’s intended black victim didn’t matter, even once the details were released and the evidence of his lawful action to save a life became crystal clear.
I think you mean the officer who saved Ma’Khia Bryant’s victim from being stabbed to death was cleared. https://t.co/EMwDnDuqCu

Reardon explained that “At the time I fired my weapon, I was in fear for the life of the female in pink,” and the bodycam footage supports his statement.
An Ohio police officer who shot and killed a 16-year-old girl as she swung a knife at another teenage girl and moments after pushing a woman to the ground last year was cleared of criminal wrongdoing Friday.
Columbus police officer Nicholas Reardon fatally shot Ma’Khia Bryant last April as officers were responding to a 911 call from her foster home about a group of girls threatening to stab members of the household. She was struck four times and died.
. . . . “At the time I fired my weapon, I was in fear for the life of the female in pink,” Reardon said, referring to Shai-onta Craig, the woman who was attacked by Bryant. She has previously lived at the foster home.
She returned that day and argued with Bryant, Craig said.
Countless lives and businesses, many of them black, have been destroyed by the knee-jerk overreaction of the hacktivist media and radical leftist social justice warriors who, instead of waiting for the facts of a case to be determined and released, go on burning, looting, and murder sprees . . . only to find out later that their ‘hero’ of the day was anything but and that the officer/s involved acted lawfully.
Any kind of “justice” that is qualified (social, racial, environmental, economic, and on) is inherently rooted in injustice, so the left’s destruction of American principles, values, and socio-cultural norms will continue apace. This latest example of radical left bias and media malpractice will be memory-holed, and the next time a black person is shot by police, more cities will burn, more lives ruined within hours of the incident, and because “racial/social justice” is inherently unjust and little more than violent mob rule, long before an investigation is conducted or exculpatory police bodycam footage released.DONATE
