We’ve said it before: whoever came up with the name “Black Lives Matter” is brilliant. If you disagree with the organization, it means you don’t believe black lives matter. But if you ask if a black life mattered when taken by another black person, you’re reminded that BLM is ostensibly about systemic racism in police departments, not black-on-black crime.
A lot of people have been bringing up in the wake of the Ma’Khia Bryant shooting an incident in Cincinnati, Ohio where a 13-year-old girl is being charged with murder after stabbing another 13-year-old to death — a story that’s not making headlines in the national news.
Family members gather for a vigil to remember 13-year-old Nyaira Givens. Cincinnati police say she died last night in Winton Hills, just steps from her home after being stabbed by another teen girl. @FOX19 pic.twitter.com/72tkBU9Y5A

Another fatal Ohio teen knifing getting little attention. #Cincinnati cops say #NyairaGivens age 13 stabbed to death by another Black 13-year old girl during a fight near family home Monday night. Girls both students at local high school. "I watched her as she died," said dad.

Weren’t we just assured by activist Bree Newsome that “teenagers have been having fights involving knives for eons” and “we do not need police to address these situations by showing up to the scene and using a weapon against one of the teenagers”?
Just another old fashioned teenage knife fight.
Going by the Bryant reaction, is it supposed to be a good thing that there was no police intervention here? https://t.co/uEQDJ1SbFt

Where are the social workers???

We were assured that defunding the police and diverting the money to things like night classes and Planned Parenthood would solve the problem.
According to @kathygriffin, knife fights are a right of passage. Duh.

Yes, I didn't realize it was such routine behavior for teens to go around stabbing each other with knives. Guess I'm behind the times.

@BreeNewsome thoughts? Maybe “at least the perpetrator is still alive?”

Have the police been blamed yet for not being there to stop it?

Society can’t have it both ways.
Send a hit-list photo by disgraceful hate-filled Lebron James of officer that saved the life of a young girl attacked by Bryant.
Not sure any officer wants to be targeted by a mob.
What will it be Ohio? Facts or feelings on this one?

Kids will be kids, ya know? It's so good that they and their community were able to sort things out and deescalate the situation without any outside interference.

We should be talking about defunding politicians instead of the police. They are the true cause of the issues with our world.

If a cop showed up, someone may have been needlessly killed.

Evidently, that's the correct way for a knife fight to conclude.

Police had been called to the scene but arrived too late to prevent the stabbing. Someone wanted the police there.
I'll wait to see what Lebron thinks about this…

Weird that @ValerieJarrett hasn't chimed in about this one.

I think the question that must be asked is what is the environment these children are growing up in that makes them believe this is how you interact with others

Last month in Washington, D.C. a 15 year old and a 13 year old car jacked a Pakistani immigrant & killed kim
Yesterday, a 16 year old girl attempted to stab another girl, resulting in her own death
Blame cops? How about asking why these kids are behaving this way https://t.co/HDaZpqiFl7

This one made local TV at least.
BLM activist Bree Newsome finds it ‘FRIGHTENING’ that white cops didn’t let Makiyah Bryant do what teenagers have been doing ‘for eons’ and kill a black girl https://t.co/9VZb4XoRJO
