(Republican Insider) – NBA basketball star LeBron James recently tweeted in a post that’s now been deleted, a photograph of a police officer who saved the life of a young black girl who was about to be stabbed by shooting the culprit, also a black girl, before she had an opportunity to bury a knife deep into the would-be victim.
According to Infowars, James posted the photo with a caption that read, “YOU’RE NEXT. #Accountability,” on Wednesday, along with an hourglass emoji that signaled to the officer his time was running out.
James went on to delete the photograph and its accompanying caption after catching a whole lot of criticism for his comments.
The National Fraternal Order of Police noted that the officer involved in the Columbus incident actually saved a young girl’s life when he stopped 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant from being able to stab her.
Here’s the picture in question:
.@KingJames, with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless.

And, as usual, hardcore left-wing celebrities attempted to try and get in on the action and spin the whole Columbus incident to make it look like this was an example of another racist cop shooting a black person, only to end up looking like a couple of fools.
Former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett and alleged “comedian” Kathy Griffin are the two offenders in question.
Jarrett herself actually said that the officer was wrong for attempting to “break up a knife fight,” essentially saying that instead of actually doing his job to serve and protect, the officer should have just allowed Bryant to stab the other girl. This, ladies and gentlemen, is proof the liberal mind is thoroughly diseased.
“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. Demand accountability. Fight for justice. #BlackLivesMatter,” Jarrett posted in a tweet on Wednesday.

Here are some responses to Jarrett:

A harmless little knife fight. (Only one girl had a knife. More like "a harmless little knife murder.") https://t.co/tzP5yZzDNL

What about the life if the girls she was actively trying to stab? What should the officer have done?

It’s amazing that this is a real tweet from a real person.

Did you see the video? She was about to stab another teenager. Please don't speak until you've seen the video. I like you, but your statement is wrong.

What is the appropriate response when encountering someone attacking another person with a knife?

I think he acted correctly. His job was to prevent an assault with a deadly weapon. He did it. A split second later the unarmed girl could have been killed.

Yeah, it was just a knife fight. Like kids do. Like learning to ride a bike …

Is there evidence the other teenager also had a knife? If there isn’t then that’s not a knife fight. That’s a stabbing and kills more people than AR15s by quite a large margin.

It’s also important to note that the would-be victim in this case did not have a knife of her own to defend herself with. Therefore, this was not a knife fight. It was an attempted murder.

And if that glaring stupidity isn’t enough, how about the comment made by Kathy Griffin:
WARNING. How in the hell does this police officer think it’s a good idea to fire shots blindly into a group of teenagers having a fight. Yes one of them has a knife. Oh, that never happened in your school or neighborhood? She didn’t deserve to die. 16 years old. #makhiabryant https://t.co/hnimSwnG7s

As we breathed a collective sigh of relief today, a community in Columbus felt the sting of another police shooting as @ColumbusPolice killed an unarmed 15yo Black girl named Makiyah Bryant. Another child lost! Another hashtag. ✊🏾🙏🏾#JusticeForMakiyahBryant https://t.co/9ssR5gfqm5

The systems that allowed George Floyd to be murdered remain FULLY intact. Moments after we celebrated a win for police accountability in Minneapolis, news broke that @ColumbusPolice murdered a 15 year old Black girl. Her name was Ma'Khia Bryant. Say her name. #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/tufTaia9lR

Celebrities, which includes sports stars like LeBron James, seem to be absolutely out of their minds. Do none of these people have a fully functioning brain in their skulls? Their own agenda, which was spoon fed to them by liberal politicians, is actually causing their intelligence to short circuit.

the last thing kids need is cops showing up during their routine knife fights and intervening

I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate -This isn’t about one officer. it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY
— LeBron James (@KingJames) April 21, 2021
James has a huge platform with followers in the millions. His opinion, unfortunately, does matter. He uses his platform to help influence people of all ages who hang on his every word. His posting this photograph, with that awful caption, without understanding the context of the situation is dangerous.
This officer is clearly a hero. Ask the girl whose life he saved whether or not she thinks he’s a good cop or a bad cop. Ask that girl’s family. You know the response you will get.
