During a new segment of “The View” discussing the police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant, Sunny Hostin suggested “deadly force” is always the first option “when it comes to Black and Brown people”
“My question is, why is deadly force always the first order of business, and especially the first order of business when it comes to Black and Brown people in this country?” Hostin asked.
“We shouldn’t live in a country, quite frankly, where it’s acceptable for the police to shoot a 16-year-old four times in the chest over a fight. It goes from zero to execution very, very quickly when there is a Black or Brown person involved. That’s just the truth,” she added.
ABC News showed bodycam footage of the police shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant, who appeared to be in the act of stabbing another teen when she was shot.
