The family of a 21-year-old pregnant woman shot and killed by police Thursday outside a Blendon Township Kroger said a Friday night candlelight vigil was just the beginning of their search for answers — and justice.
Ta’Kiya Young, 21, of Columbus, died in the fatal police shooting, as did her unborn child. Young’s family said she was pregnant with her third child, a girl, and was due to give birth in November. She also has two sons: a 6-year-old and a 3-year-old.https://archive.vn/0H7EI
Dis be Ta’kiya, a 21 year old pregnant with her third kid….
Why oh why did they police gun down this sweet innocent girl and mother of three? Maybe racism? Can anyone tell me why?
Police say theft led to pregnant woman using car as weapon….
….Police allege Young and others were stealing from Kroger and said the two officers were in the Kroger parking lot helping someone who was having car problems when a store employee alerted them to Young, alleging she took multiple bottles of alcohol from the store without paying.
Young got into a four-door Lexus sedan that did not have a license plate, Belford said in his statement, and was illegally parked in a handicapped spot.
One officer went to the driver’s side of the car, Belford said, and told her to stop. The other officer then moved in front of Young’s vehicle, he said. Police allegedly fired once, hitting Young, whose car then traveled about 50 feet before crashing.
So this 21 year old mother of two, a 3 year old and a 6 year old meaning she probably got pregnant at 14, with one more on the way was at the Kroger, stealing shit and of course it was not diapers or formula or food for her little darling boys. Nope, she was stealing booze. Genius that she is, no one noticed that cops were already in the parking lot and when they tried to detain her, she accelerated her car at the officer, leaving them no choice other than to either get run over by Columbus Mother of the Year 2023 or shoot her.
Young’s grandmother (Nadine Young) said she felt like Blendon Township police were trying to build a narrative about Young before they release the body camera footage, which could be released as soon as Monday.
“She stole something from the store,” she said. “You didn’t have to shoot the woman; she would have eventually gotten out of the … car. You didn’t have to kill her and the baby.”
Sounds a lot like “hands up, don’t shoot”, as if she walked out of the store with a bag of Skittles she forgot to pay for and they shot her down. Grandma Nadine conveniently left out the part about Ta’Kiya trying to run down an officer. To blacks, cops are never justified in shooting black pee-po, even if the black in question is trying to harm or kill the cop. Just let her go, after all Kroger has insurance.
There hasn’t been a lot of coverage of this which makes me assume that the shooting was completely justified. Her family will still cash in on the ghetto lottery via GoFundMe donations from White people and a civil lawsuit that Columbus will probably settle out of court. Her family will divvy up the loot for gold teeth and her two sons will likely end up just like their mama on the wrong end of a cop’s pistol in the near future. Let’s hope they don’t get the chance to pass on their genetic material.
