There has been a lot made by certain Democrats and celebrities about the shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant, but not much has been made of the “girl in pink” whose life was saved from being stabbed.

“A Black teenage girl named Ma’Khia Bryant was killed because a police officer immediately decided to shoot her multiple times in order to break up a knife fight. Demand accountability.  Fight for justice. #BlackLivesMatter,” former Obama official Valerie Jarrett said in a tweet that she still has not deleted.

“Just because an officer can use deadly force does not mean the officer should. Let’s spend more time responsibly training them to de-escalate violent situations, and if force is required, use the minimum force necessary,” she said in another tweet.

“ACAB (All Cops Are Bastard) ABOLISH THE FU**ING POLICE. the same day we ‘celebrate’ a verdict for another loss that should’ve never happened, a Black child is murdered. ABOLISHMENT IS THE ONLY ANSWER,” musician Kehlani said.

“We cannot even have a moment of justice before another Black life is taken by the police, this time a teen named Ma’khia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio who called them for help. Instead, they shot her four times,” “Star Trek” actor George Takei said.

And the most famous of all, NBA star Lebron James, tweeted “You’re Next” with a photo of the officer who shot Bryant, and an apparent reference to former officer Derek Chauvin being convicted of the murder and manslaughter of George Floyd.

James went on to delete the tweet and explain himself but offered no apologies to the officer who likely saved the life of another woman by stop Bryant.

“ANGER does any of us any good and that includes myself! Gathering all the facts and educating does though! My anger still is here for what happened that lil girl. My sympathy for her family and may justice prevail,” he said in one tweet.

“I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate -This isn’t about one officer.  it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY,” he said in another.

But the intended victim, known as “the girl in pink” because she has not been named, appeared to be thrilled that police came to her aid, as she was walking away from the scene and talking to another officer, in a video shared by Columbus police.

“She f**king came at me with a knife,” the intended victim said. The officer then asked her, “She came at you with a knife earlier?” “No, she just did,” the girl said. “That is why, that’s why the police did it. She came after me.” “With a knife?” the officer said. “Yeah, so he got her,” the girl said, apparently grateful that her life was saved.

But none of these celebrities apparently cared about her life. Only the life of someone who was within inches of stabbing another black woman.

The New York Post reported on the shooting.

Newly released 911 calls and dramatic police bodycam footage provide disturbing new details of the police shooting death of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant in Ohio on Tuesday.

Columbus police also identified the cop who fired the fatal shots as Nicholas Reardon, who has been with the force since 2019, officials said at a press conference.

Police released a portion of Reardon’s bodycam video on Tuesday — but not the extended footage or the other cops’ video.

All of the cameras show Bryant fighting with another girl before she is seen lunging at one with what appears to be a knife when she is shot.
