Joy Behar Says Cops Should ‘Shoot The Gun In The Air’ As She Responds To Columbus Shooting

On Thursday’s episode of “The View,” cohost Joy Behar had a truly bizarre reaction to the fatal police shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant during a knife fight in Columbus, Ohio. Behar shockingly claimed that police shoot “shoot the gun in the air” in these kind of situations.

Don Lemon’s Comments

The segment began with a clip in which CNN host Don Lemon said, “Base each incident on what we see. When I look at this video, I see police responding to a dangerous incident where someone is armed with a knife.”

“Police walked up on a situation, and they need to figure out what is happening,” he added. “Other lives are in danger. We need to be honest and use our common sense. We cannot have a double standard. We have to acknowledge that police have jobs to do.”

“Joy, you were talking to Don Lemon about this last night apparently. Tell us,” cohost Whoopi Goldberg said after the clip had ended.

That’s when Behar went off.

Behar Sounds Off

“Well, he texted me because I mentioned this case yesterday vis-a-vis the George Floyd case,” Behar began. “He said you know that the cop had no choice or something to that effect. My feeling is I don’t know if that’s true or not. I really can’t figure it out anymore.”

“I mean, it seems to me in a situation — This is what it looked to me,” she added. “I looked at the tape and still can’t figure it out. Shoot the gun in the air as a warning. Tase a person. Shoot them in the leg. Shoot them in the behind.”

“Stop them somehow. If the only solution is to kill a teenager, there’s something wrong with this,” Behar continued. “There’s something wrong with the way these things are being conducted. Even if the cop had to do it, there’s something wrong with it. I can’t explain it any better than that.”

“We keep talking about this over and over, and kids still keep getting shot,” Behar concluded. “It’s like the gun issue in this country. People keep getting shot, and nothing gets done about it. It’s a very frustrating conversation to have. I can’t add much to it.”

The insanity of the leftist media never ceases to amaze.
