As you may have already heard, a young girl named Ma-Khia Bryant was shot by a police officer in Columbus, Ohio as she appeared to attempt to stab another young girl. Both girls were black. The police officer almost certainly saved a girl’s life–or at least prevented serious injury–by shooting the alleged attacker.
The race-obsessed NBA star LeBron James, who just can’t help himself, had to weigh in on the response by the Columbus Police Officer who very possibly saved the life of the intended victim. In a now-deleted Tweet, LeBron doxxed the officer who shot the young knife-wielding teen with his photo along with a threatening message to him, stating “YOU’RE NEXT” with an hourglass, suggesting the clock is ticking.
When the National Fraternal Order of Police heard about the tweet, they responded by saying LeBron needs to “educate himself.”

Outkick reports – While some will always stand by James no matter what, some are going the other way, including a bar in the Cincinnati area.
The bar, Linnie’s Pub, located in Delhi Township near Cincy, has announced they will no longer show any more games with James playing in it due to James’ online comments.
“If anyone wants to watch an NBA game, don’t come to Linnie’s Pub,” owner Jay Linneman said on Facebook of his bar.
“We will not air them until LeBron James has been expelled from the NBA.”
James’ original tweet was removed, and the Los Angeles Laker came out and explained his reasoning for taking down the tweet.
Former President Trump slammed the NBA star, LeBron James, for his “racist rants.”
Trump called it “divisive, nasty, insulting, and demeaning.”
“LeBron James should focus on basketball rather than presiding over the destruction of the NBA, which has just recorded the lowest television RATINGS, by far, in the long and distinguished history of the League,” Trump said
