Today on The Five, when asked what he would have done if he’d been the cop pulling up to that scene, Juan Williams claimed that he’d have fired a warning shot, hoping to distract Ma’Khia Bryant and disarm her:
Here’s more from the Daily Caller:
Juan Williams said Thursday that he might have fired a warning shot before approaching Ma’Khia Bryant as she attempted to stab another girl with a knife.
Williams made the comments on Fox News’ “The Five,” saying that he understood law enforcement was a tough job but that killing a person was a “pretty radical” response.
“All right, first of all, it’s not a knife fight when only one person has a knife, that’s a butcher shop,” co-host Jesse Watters began, asking Williams what he might do if he were the officer in a similar situation.
“You see mayhem, there’s a guy that’s kicking a girl down to the ground and another woman lunging at a defenseless woman like this with a sharp blade, you have seconds to react. She doesn’t put the knife down when you warn her,” Watters said. “What does Juan Williams, Officer Juan Williams do to save the lady’s life in pink?”
“I guess I would shoot the gun, not necessarily at somebody, but maybe shoot the gun and maybe run at the person and try to disarm them, like I don’t know,” Williams replied.
“So wait, wait, wait. You would shoot the gun in the air like a warning shot?” Watters pushed back.
“Ah, well, hopefully to distract her and tried to stall or something so I could get — or my partner could get the knife away,” Williams continued. “Policing is tough work. But all I’m saying is, you know, I think that that woman with a knife is a danger to society and certainly a danger to the other person and we want her to stop and be disarmed. I just also think killing a human is pretty radical. I don’t think that’s a good thing.”
Killing a human is radical, and that’s exactly what Ma’Khia Bryant was trying to do to the girl in pink! The only way to stop her is for the cop to also do something radical, and that is to shoot her to protect the girl in pink.
Juan’s warning shot wouldn’t have saved the girl in pink. Bryant’s arm with the knife was already in the swinging motion and a loud noise would not have done anything to stop it. The girl in pink would have been seriously wounded, at best, if the cop had done what Juan suggested.
These liberals are so ridiculous with the nonsense they keep spewing. There is no utopia. The real world can be ugly sometimes and unfortunately, there isn’t always a wonderful solution where everyone lives happily ever after. That is not real life. Stop living in fantasy land Juan and realize this cop did the only thing he could, and that’s why he’s a freaking hero.
