The aggrieved Left, which has had a year-long two-minute hate against police, immediately went from the Chauvin victory celebration to attacking a police officer in Columbus, Ohio.
The officer in question shot a 16-year-old black girl who was attacking two others with a knife.
While the fact that the girl was armed is irrelevant to them, it does matter to normies. Ergo, the Left needs to present this situation in a way that is palatable to the normies.
The way they have decided to do this is to make the argument that a knife fight really isn’t a big deal. This isn’t something new, we’ve seen this before in the concealed carry/gun rights debate over self-defense.
Now it’s being applied to this shooting.
The thing is, it ends up sounding ridiculous.
Last time it was D-List celeb, Kathy Griffin.
WARNING. How in the hell does this police officer think it’s a good idea to fire shots blindly into a group of teenagers having a fight. Yes one of them has a knife. Oh, that never happened in your school or neighborhood? She didn’t deserve to die. 16 years old. #makhiabryant https://t.co/hnimSwnG7s

This time it’s Blue Checkmark college professor.
A Black girl is dead because the cops brought a gun to a damn knife fight. If you don’t know how to de-escalate teen girls who are fighting, you should not be a police officer. I said what I said. #MakhiaBryant

It was only a knife. It was just a knife fight.
This can only be made to suburbanites who have ever seen a knife fight except on TV and think about getting cut as something you put a bandaid on.
They don’t think about getting stabbed in the guts and having to live a life with a colostomy bag if you don’t die.
I think, or at least I hope, that this argument gets them out over their skis a little too much. I just don’t see “let teenagers stab each other, it’s no big deal” being a compelling argument in suburbia.
