Black Lives Matter supporters from Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett to filmmaker Bree Newsome are furious with police for using a gun to break up a routine "knife fight" involving Ma'Khia Bryant and an unarmed woman holding a dog.

"Teenagers have been having fights including fights involving knives for eons," anti-police activist Bree Newsome told her over 460k followers on Twitter after video of the incident came out. "We do not need police to address these situations by showing up to the scene & using a weapon against one of the teenagers."

"Everyone should be frightened that the ruling white elite have done such a thoroughly successful job of not only disconnecting us from the means of basic self-sufficiency but also convincing us we need armed white officers to manage our children & communities," she continued. "Frightening."

Rutgers University professor Brittney Cooper, a regular on MSNBC, also weighed in to criticize the officer for bringing "a gun to a damn knife fight."

"A Black girl is dead because the cops brought a gun to a damn knife fight," Cooper said. "If you don’t know how to de-escalate teen girls who are fighting, you should not be a police officer. I said what I said."

After getting pushback, Cooper bashed her critics for "whitesplaining" to her that the video shows the officer was justified in shooting her.

Valerie Jarrett, the president of the Barack Obama Foundation, also criticized the cop who shot Bryant for "immediately" deciding to "shoot her multiple times in order to break up a knife fight."

"A Black teenage girl named Ma’Khia Bryant was killed because a police officer immediately decided to shoot her multiple times in order to break up a knife fight," Jarrett said. "Demand accountability. Fight for justice. #BlackLivesMatter"

Forgive me for whitesplaining but normally a "knife fight" involves two people trying to stab one another rather than one person trying to stab someone holding a dog who is wincing in fear!

Incidentally, the video shows Bryant was shot at the exact point that she was thrusting the knife down at her victim for what may have been a fatal blow.
