Republican Lawmaker Joining Fundraiser To Help Police

(ReliableNews.org) – The police department in Columbus, Ohio has been under attack lately by protesters who are angry about the April 20 death of Ma’Khia Bryant. The teenager was shot and killed by police after she allegedly had a knife and lunged toward another girl. The Left is accusing the police of murdering the teen, so now law enforcement supporters are holding a fundraiser — and a pretty big name will be there.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has said she plans to attend the event at the Ohio Statehouse on Saturday, May 1. Rep. Greene said the officer who stopped Bryant from allegedly hurting the other woman “should be treated like a hero.”

The “Back the Blue Freedom Rally!” is being hosted by the Ohio Gun Owners. Executive Director Chris Dorr explained that the group wants police to know that the “law-abiding community has their backs” and they are “not forgotten.” For those interested in attending the event, it will be held on the West Lawn from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., attendees might want to arrive early to find parking.
