I am sure you remember this case from last year:

The officer has been cleared of any wrongdoing (and rightfully so), but two things keep popping up that tick the hell out of me. First is the “Trayvonization” of Ma’Khia Bryant. By that I mean she is literally portrayed in image as a peaceful happy child rather than the violent woman armed with a knife, half a second away from inflicting a deadly injury to somebody unarmed and non-aggressive.  Just like to this day the image of Trayvon Martin is of that cute 12-year-old in a white hoodie rather than the late thug teen smoking and flipping the bird to the camera acting all gansta.

All the media outlets I checked have managed to keep the racial component out of their wording. No need for them to add anything since there are plenty of people in the comment section adding it. And then, there is the second part that ticks me off: Those Internet experts in the Use Deadly Force graduated from the University of TV Shows and PHD From the Jackie Chan Disarming Program.

I just would like to ask these idiots one simple question: How many stabs to the abdomen and chest would they be willing to take as long as the cops use “dialogue” and taser (with a 50% failure rate) on their attackers? One? Five? As long as it takes? Till the coroner picks up their body?

Inquiring minds want to know.

  1. I especially loved the “that never happens here” comment.

    Re tasers, as I have said before, I have come to think adding them to the LEO toolkit was in aggregate a mistake. But anyway.

  2. I remember there was some talk that the girl Bryant was trying to stab had actually initiated the conflict.

    Which is sad, but it doesn’t change that Bryant chased the girl out of the house with a knife and tried to shank her in front of a police officer.

  3. He should get a medal for saving the other girls life. You couldn’t pay me to be a cop today…and it’s actually getting bad for firemen! I had a guy yesterday on an accident scene get mad at me because I told him to not leave the scene after he hit a fire hydrant.

  4. I am reminded of a Chicago (?) police superintendent boasting of CPD’s response average time of 5 minutes. That was before IL was forced to institute a CC system. A pro-gun group suggested that said superintendent endure 5 minutes of being beaten with a crowbar.

    Few people seem to understand the dynamics of physical altercations.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
