I generally condemn the trigger happy use of lethal force by US police in these incidents.
But I have to agree with you. The other women was likely milliseconds away from an horrific knife attack. The police may well have saved her life. There was simply no time for anything else eg a risky shot to the legs would not have stopped the momentum of the slashing.
This incident bears no relation to the George Floyd murder imo.
The media don't help things by not reporting the context of what actually happened, on CH4 news last night all they said was, black girl of 16 shot by police officer, where if they had done some proper research they could of said, black girl in pink was saved by cop from being possibly fatally stabbed to death
