A new video angle, apparently taken by a porch-mounted security camera, shows that the Columbus, Ohio police officer who shot Ma’Khia Bryant acted within the parameters of proper police procedure. Black Lives Matter and left-wing militants have attempted to use Bryant’s death as an excuse for more riots and looting.
In the footage, Bryant can clearly be seen storming down a driveway, engaging in a verbal altercation with multiple other females, and then taking advantage of an officer being distracted by one female’s fall to lunge at another with a knife.
“I’m gonna stab the f**k outta you b**ch,” Bryant screams.
The officer then engages the threat, saving the girl wearing pink.

National File’s previous reporting on the shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant can be found below:
The full body cam video of the officer involved shooting of Columbus teen Ma’Khia Bryant on Tuesday afternoon was released during a press conference held by the Columbus Department of Public Safety. The video shows the young teen charging an individual with a knife before being shot by police.
16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant was shot and killed by a police officer as she lunged at another woman during what appeared to be a large melee after police were called to the home. Bryant’s family member says police were called to end the fight happening on the property per local media WKYC. Bryant was shot by police after lunging at another woman with a knife, and was later pronounced dead in a local hospital.
About 6 minutes and 40 seconds into the video posted to YouTube, viewers can see that Bryant was wielding what appears to be a knife as she charges another individual. Right before Bryant appeared to be in the process of stabbing the individual, she was fatally shot by police. The knife apparently held by Bryant can be seen on the ground repeatedly after the shooting.
