Makhia Bryant, 16, was shot and killed by police in Columbus, Ohio early Tuesday evening when responding officers encountered the teenager in the middle of an attempt to stab another girl. In the aftermath of the shooting, relatives of the deceased made numerous claims. Some of those claims have now been determined to be outright lies.

More troubling is the fact that these relatives, purportedly close to the deceased, were unable to give consistent spellings of her name (or even her age) when asked by journalists on scene. First she was Ma’Khia Bryant. Then she was Makiyah Bryant. Finally, we learned she was actually Makhia Bryant.

Was she 15 or 16? Well, they weren’t quite sure on that front either. From the looks of things now that the dust has settled a bit, she was 16-years-old at the time of her death.

Bryant was living in fostercare despite having a father, mother, grandfather, and aunt—all “reliable” witnesses who were uncritically quoted by journalists just hours after the shooting took place. For some reason, the state determined that these individuals were deemed unable to care for Bryant, but they made perfect witnesses for the jackals in the press.
