Psaki calls Ohio fatal police shooting of teen who appeared to attack others ‘tragic’

DM

White House press secretary Jen Psaki called the Ohio police shooting of a teenage girl who appeared to be wielding a knife “tragic” and said it will fuel the White House to continue addressing “systemic racism.” “Let me just say, since you gave me the opportunity, the killing of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant by the Columbus police is tragic. She was a child,” Psaki said. “We know that police violence disproportionately impacts black and Latino people and communities and that black women and girls like black men and boys experience higher rates of police violence.”
