      Narrative being spun in the Twitterverse is that the knife wielder was defending herself from the girl in pink.

        Are you nuts? She would have an instant target on her back. Peaceful protestors might even burn her house down.

          I'm sure the headlines would have been better if the police had done nothing.

          "White cops stand around watching as black teenage girl kills another with a knife".



          Who called the police? Was it one of the girls being attacked? Because isn't it ironic, in that case, that the police are summoned for help by a black person after all the crap throughout the past year with BLM, etc., demanding police defunding and/or dismantling?

              I don't know how true any of this is, but this is the story I'm seeing in social media:

              Some girls came to the house of the girl in black to pick a fight. The girl in black called the police and then proceeded to grab a knife and confront her attackers. This is why it is being claimed that she was acting in self-defense even though the bodycam footage shows that she was actively assaulting the other girls and attempted to stab one before being shot.

                She is black. It would cause cognitive dissonance as they tried to reconcile a white cop shooting a black girl to save a black girl.

                  Even if true there was no way for the cop to know that, and he would still have had to shoot the girl in black because she was about to murder the girl in pink. A half second more and she would have been stabbed.

                    It's also hard to buy the "self-defense" argument when she's raising a knife against an unarmed opponent who is cowering in fear.

                      And any officer in his right mind would see a lethal attack in progress, and is sworn to defend persons from such attack.

                        Kind of like when someone declares self-defense when they shot someone in the back who had been running away.

                          The girl that called 911 was the one killed.

                            Yet she is still attempting to stab two people after the cops arrive!

                              This looks a lot like someone who was, by the point police arrived, blinded with rage.

                                I have to believe this is a very troubled girl - she was reportedly in the care of Social Services, yet her mother is speaking for her. And the fact that she is the one who called 911 doesn't change the fact that she is the one with the knife in her hand threatening others.
