Black Lives Matter Doesn’t Mention Attempted Stabbing on Official Page About Police Shooting of Ohio Girl

Black Lives Matter’s official page on the death of Ma’Khia Bryant, who was fatally shot by a Columbus Police officer last week, is noticeably devoid of details regarding the incident.

“At the exact same time the verdict of Derek Chauvin was being read for murdering George Floyd, police wasted no time in senselessly taking another Black child,” the page says.

It says that Bryant “called the police for help,” and that her life was “stolen with no regard.”

But that is not what happened.

Video of the incident shows Officer Nicholas Reardon showing up on the scene just seconds before a curse-laden rant from Bryant, who then attempted to plunge a large knife into the body of another girl:

Here’s a closer view of the attempted stabbing, from Reardon’s body-warn camera:

The Black Lives Matter page makes no mention of Bryant’s attempted stabbing in its memorial of Bryant, instead making the implication that Reardon killed her in cold blood.

Star News Education Foundation Journalism Project“Together, we’re going to uplift, center, and honor this Black child for what she loved — doing her hair, making TikToks, and being a teenager. Her account is currently deactivated, but we’ve compiled a few of her TikToks on social media so we can all remember her joy,” the page says. “Ma’Khia Bryant’s life mattered.”

On the same page, a “Donate” button can be found. It links to a fundraising page.

“We appreciate your support of the movement and our ongoing fight to end state-sanctioned violence, liberate Black people, and end white supremacy forever,” that page says, suggesting donation amounts below the text.

Black Lives Matters’ fundraising operations have been called into question recently, when it was revealed that one of its founders, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, purchased several homes, including a $1.4 million home in a “ritzy” Los Angeles neighborhood. Khan-Cullors is an avowed and self-described Marxist. That story was subsequently censored by Facebook.

    Of course BLM leaves out FACTS. It doesn’t fit their racist agenda.
