*An Ohio police officer was captured on video shouting “blue lives matter” to a group of bystanders at the scene where another officer shot and killed a Black teenage girl in Columbus.
On Tuesday afternoon, moments before Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murdering George Floyd, a Columbus officer fatally shot 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant after responding to a 911 call about an attempted stabbing. In a Facebook video taken in the aftermath of the shooting, upset neighbors can be seen discussing what happened when a nearby officer appears to yell to them: “Blue lives matter.”
One of the neighbors responds: “Blue lives matter? Crazy. That’s an insult, especially at this place right now.”
The Washington Post also reported Tuesday that another cop on the scene was wearing a “blue lives matter” face mask.
