Immediately, grey man starts kicking girl 1. Pink girl approaches the fight, when M immediately turns and pushes her backwards.

    So, who are the aggressors? Was M just standing up for her poor Grandmother?

    The cop cannot be blamed, but I think it very likely that he misunderstood the situation.
    Passive? They had to call 911 on her!

      Right, and if you listen closely to the audio, she's actually saying, "This is the kind of knife Gordon Ramsey says to use when preparing a Beef Wellington." It wasn't an attempted stabbing at all, she was just giving a very energetic cooking lesson. Maybe if the cop hadn't been so quick to pull the trigger he might have realized that.

        If she would have held her pinky extended as she put forth her mighty effort to skewer the target of her furor, the constables would never have opened fire upon her

          Even your fellow stoners/heads/chronics or whatever "kids these days" are calling y'all, probably looked at you strange when you said that out loud. Unfortunately it appears that you misread their laughter as being their thinking it was funny, and so you figured you'd share it and hence we arrive at your post

                The officer was protecting the young lady in pink from being stabbed by a six-inch paring knife. Or does her life not matter?

                  The one thing we've learned over the past few years is that the only deaths of black people that matter to many of those on the left is the ones that they can exploit.

                  • Don't think this would be news if it were a white boy killed before he stabbed another teen.
                    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

                        You guys are idiots! If you zoom in and clarify the video you can clearly see there was a bee on the pink girl's head and she was merely trying to brush it away with the knife to protect her friend.

                          I think that's why I liked a revolver so much --- you never had to worry whether the safety was on or off.

                            - remember the black cop, David Dorn, that was killed by looters last year when he was trying to protect a friend's store? Where was the nationwide furor over that?

                              I worked with a guy with a pair of customized Colt Pythons that were modified by adding external safety switches on them.

                                My Ruger Security Six .357 magnum (my most favorite handgun ever) came with a built in safety -----

                                Don't pull the trigger - safety on
                                Pull the trigger - safety off
