there have been a lot of stories about ma’khia bryant since her death.
whenever i asked:
she was about to be jumped and she called the police…
Why did she go outside with a knife?”
no one can give me answers.
there was no bullying and there are other twists and turns within this story.
“the girl in pink” is at the heart of this story.
she is the one that was about to get stabbed before ma’khia was shot to death.
i’m hearing she was innocent and has been receiving death threats…
“But according to Fox 8, the woman Bryant appeared to be lunging at when police shot her was identified and doxed by people online. After her address and photo began circulating on social media, the woman reportedly told police she was receiving death threats.
Fox 8 reported that the woman, often referred to online as “the girl in pink” for the bright outfit she was wearing in the video, said people were telling her she “should be beat or killed” and that someone claimed “they were on their way to her current address to kill her.”
Many details about the shooting and the events leading up to it are still uncertain, though video of the woman in pink being escorted from the scene featured her saying that Bryant “fucking came at me with a knife.”
Bryant’s foster mother, Angela Moore, has said that the argument between Bryant and two of her former foster children, including the woman in pink, was “over keeping the house clean.” She also said that woman is the one who called her to tell her what had happened after Bryant was shot by police.”
i’ve been reading the girl in pink was allegedly completely innocent.
so everyone has decided to go the “cyberbully” route,
which i’m sure was under burner accounts.
girl in pink may have been innocent and traumatized,
but let’s send her death threats because that’s even better!
even if she was wrong:
What purpose is threatening to kill her gonna do for you?
get you in jail?
you’re an idiot.
ma’khia didn’t have to die,
but it seems as the stories come out,
she wasn’t as innocent as folks are making her out to be.
this situation was never a “complied with the police but was killed anyway“.
this seemed like some hood shit gone terribly wrong.
ma’khia’s family is riding the wave in getting publicity.
like i said,
she didn’t need to be killed BUT it seems she wasn’t innocent like other black deaths before her.
This is why we need context and the whole story before we get the pitchforks.
it’s okay to admit the victim might have been wrong.
