Scenes From Columbus, Where Police Just Shot A 15-Year-Old Black Girl

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

We had precisely 0 minutes to celebrate justice for George Floyd, because Columbus, Ohio police shot and killed 15-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant while the Floyd verdict was still being read Tuesday afternoon. Bodycam footage strongly suggests police opened fire on Ma’Khia Bryant without provocation, and the city of Columbus spent Tuesday night up in arms over this senseless and unprovoked killing 

WARNING:The video below is graphic and depicts the police killing of a 15-year-old girl. It’s jarring how they do it so quickly and without hesitation. You may want to scroll past the video below and on to the protest scenes.

The Reuters video below captures the protest scene Tuesday night on Columbus.

There is a lot of misinformation flowing on whether Ma’Khia Bryant  “appeared to attempt to stab two people with a knife” or whether she “called 911 for help.” Conflicting accounts are being presented to the media (and on social media),  creating confusion around the shooting.

Demonstrations continued through the night in Columbus.

Before Columbus Police shot and Ma’Khia Bryant Tuesday, the previous weekend, they made no attempts to disrupt white kids having a hooligan football celebration on Saturday,   just days before.

More than a thousand Ohio State football fans tore up a neighborhood and flipped cars this past Saturday, celebrating the result of an exhibition intrasquad scrimmage game. No one was shot or even arrested, despite vastly more dangerous behavior than Ma’Khia Bryant.
