    I think both is needed, police reform and for people to stop being idiots and violent criminals, plus parents to parent better. I go by a case by case basis. I feel George Floyd's death wasn't justified. A case like that is where reform is needed. But I feel this death was justified and the way police should be trained to act more often. Girl was armed, cop shot what sounded like 4 times and put her down quickly and efficiently, not unloading the clip or injuring any innocents. I support the cop in this case. And some people in communities and the media need to learn that not every case is about race, but about de-escalating a situation and that's what this cop did.
    Police reform is the mantra of liberal race hustlers who use the police as an easy target for controlling their constituents. There will always be a few bad cops, and they can be dealt with on a case by case basis. But there is no need for overhaul of all police departments as it pertains to brutality or those who are killed during police encounters. In fact, the numbers are lower than they have ever been in terms of fatal police encounters. The media would have you believe it’s an epidemic, which it is not.

    So the cop is bigger and all he had to do was grab her hand that was swinging a knife?? She was in mid-swing when he fired the shots. Maybe, just maybe, she should not have tried stabbing someone? How would you feel if he hesitated and she stabbed someone and killed them? Or if he tried grabbing her and he gets stabbed himself and bleeds out? Here's a thought...parents start parenting.

    Instead of police reform, how about every time a minor commits a violent felony the parents are held just as accountable, maybe that way they will start being responsible parents instead of professional victims every time the cameras are rolling.

    Rashawn “DJ Envy” Casey has been facing heated backlash online for his controversial comments about the fatal shooting of teen Ma’Khia Bryant by police.

    But the “Breakfast Club” host tells Page Six, “I understand people are upset and they have the right to be — but what I don’t like is this cancel culture, when they try to cancel somebody for an opinion.”

    While debating the case on-air with co-host Charlamagne Tha God, Envy made comments that were sympathetic to police in the Columbus, Ohio, shooting.

    “Every case is different,” he said this week. “And in this case, if I pull up to a scene and see a girl chasing another girl about to stab a girl, my job as a police officer is to make sure that girl doesn’t get killed. And the law allows me to stop that killing or that stabbing by any means necessary. That’s what the law allows me to do, on both sides.”

    Bryant was shot on April 20 by police officer Nicholas Reardon outside of her home when a call was made to 911 to stop a fight. Police bodycam video showed Reardon firing several shots at Bryant as she lunged with a knife at another person.

    Envy told us: “The whole situation is tragic and it’s sad because that system failed that young lady. The fact that she’s out there fighting at 16 with a grown woman. The fact that the older man seen in the video would rather kick the girl on the ground and join the fight instead of stopping the fight, all these things come together and the system failed that girl and it is sad.”

    He further added, “Everybody’s saying [the police] shoot first, but he possibly saved that [other girl’s] life … if she would’ve stabbed her, who knows if she would’ve lived. She could have got cut in the throat, in the face, we just don’t know what could happen.”

    The radio host and Queens native is the son of a retired NYPD cop, and a victim of police harassment, he said, who “has experience with both sides of the spectrum.”

    Either way, Twitter went into a frenzy over Envy’s stance on the subject, with comments including, “DJ Envy is a bozo,” and, “Every time a police shooting happens [DJ Envy’s] corny ass always gotta remind everybody that his dad was a cop.” Other commenters posted, “His career should have ended a long time ago,” and, “DJ Envy supported the death of a teen girl and that needs to be the end of his career.”

    He was also accused of selling out his race for supporting the police, with one social media user calling him a hurtful racial epithet in a since-deleted comment.

    “It doesn’t hurt me … because people are mad about what’s going on and I’m mad and upset as well,” Envy told us. “But I know who’s on my side and who’s not. I know who tries to help the community and who doesn’t. We sit here and raise money every year for organizations that fight against this. I help our community with financial freedom and learning about buying their own homes, and their own investment properties. So people can have financial freedom so they can use their own money.”

    NBA star LeBron James tweeted a picture of Reardon along with the ominous caption, “YOU’RE NEXT.” The Akron-born Lakers champ later deleted the tweet amid backlash, saying he took the message down because it was “being used to create more hate.”

    Envy elaborated of those who want him canceled for his comments, “We should be able to have a conversation and dialogue. I did not sexually assault somebody. I wasn’t racist to someone. I am just stating the facts, and what I see. I have had conversations with friends and celebrities who feel the same way, but they will not say so publicly because it is not a popular opinion and they are fearful of the backlash.”

    Once the police departments get reformed the amount of critism will drop off. They need to reform. There are groups of officers in clans or clubs that get tattooed when they kill someone. As long as that type of behavior is going on this is still going to keep happening. This particular officer did nothing wrong by responding to a flip remark..

    NYC has city council members who are AOC loyalists and spout this sort of nonsense, where we make excuse for murderers. We're headed down a very dangerous path here:

    NY City Council candidate blames ‘intergenerational trauma’ for daylight execution

    The woman who admitted to gunning down her ex-girlfriend execution-style in Park Slope this week should be treated as a “victim” of “intergenerational trauma” who deserves “compassion,” a candidate for New York’s City Council has suggested.

    Brandon West, the candidate for District 39 (Park Slope-Gowanus) — endorsed by the Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-backed Democratic Socialists of America — railed about Wednesday’s broad-daylight shooting that left Nichelle Thomas, 51, dead.

    But he blamed the cold-blooded killing not on the brazen shooter but on a system that failed suspect Latisha Bell, who admitted to the slaying after surrendering to police.

    “People grow up in hostile and toxic environments, experience abuse and poverty and receive minimal help or education from professionals and the government,” West wrote in a series of tweets on Thursday. “This can lead to them having undiagnosed, unsupported mental and material issues that end up perpetuating violence.”

    He continued that acknowledging mental health issues “earlier” — and not boosting police presence — was the right way to combat “person-to-person violence.”

    Why should this cop be investigated?

    The DC police are investigating a viral TikTok where an officer is asked if he would 'kill me like Ma'Khia Bryant' and appears to say, 'Are you going to stab somebody like her?'
    • A video shows a person asking a DC police officer if he would "kill me like Ma'Khia Bryant."
    • An officer appears to respond, "Are you going to stab somebody like her?"
    • The police told Insider the department was aware of the video and was investigating.
    • Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    The Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, DC, says it's investigating a video on TikTok that shows an exchange between a person and several officers about the police killing of 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant in Ohio last week.

    The context and the date of the video are unclear. It shows police officers surrounding a car.

    A voice behind the camera can be heard asking the officers, "Are y'all gonna kill me like Ma'Khia Bryant?"

    "Are you going to stab somebody like her?" another voice responds, apparently belonging to one of the officers. It's unclear who exactly makes the remark since the officers are wearing face coverings.

    The person behind the camera then gets angry. "She called y'all for help," the person says. "F— is you talking about."

    "You just said that on camera. This s— is going viral," the person behind the camera says

    A Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson told Insider on Monday morning that the department was "aware of this incident and it is currently under investigation."

    The department would not confirm whether one of its officers had made the remark about Bryant trying to stab someone, saying only that "the members in the video are MPD members."

    It's unclear where the video originally came from. The TikTok user who posted the footage on Friday said she did not record the video.

    As of Monday, the video had been viewed more than 913,000 times on TikTok and widely reshared on Facebook and Twitter.

    There is nothing to look into.. The guy was taunting the police and he got an answer.

    How is anybody really trying to argue what happened? Girl was actively trying to stab somebody in the face and the cop had to put her down. There’s nothing controversial here.
