Ma’Khia Bryant’s Mom Previously Charged with Child Endangerment and Assault, Father Kicked Girl in Video and Has Extensive Criminal Background
TB Daily News, April 24, 2021
The other day I published a blog criticizing Paula Bryant, the mother of 16 year old Ma’Khia Bryant who was killed by Columbus Police while trying to stab an unidentified black woman wearing pink. Paula Bryant blamed the cops for the death of her daughter while taking no accountability for herself, despite the fact that her troubled child was in foster care and instigated the entire incident which was all caught on film.
However, as it turns out Mom is a liar, her father was involved in the fight, and both of them have a long and documented criminal history.
Ma’Khia wasn’t on the honor roll at Independence High School, where she was far from the only child who had the misfortune of having parents who put apostrophes in their names.
She didn’t even enroll in the school until February.
It took three minutes of Googling to figure that one out. Although it isn’t the biggest deal that Paula Bryant lied about her honor roll daughter, it does establish that 1) she can’t be trusted, and 2) the media will blindly repeat anything that makes the victim of a police shooting look good.
Paula Bryant was charged in 2004 with domestic violence and assault. The charges were ultimately dismissed after she plead guilty on amended charges.
In 2010 she was charged with domestic violence, assault, and endangering children. She plead guilty on an amended charge.
In the video you can see Ma’Khia storm out of the house and run one of the other girls over. You then see a man come out of nowhere and kick the girl in the head while she’s down as Ma’Khia goes to stab the girl in the pink.
That man is apparently her father Myron Hammonds, who’s a real gem himself.
You can hear him right after the shooting at the 4:35 repeatedly yell, “that’s my baby,” and “Is you stupid? She’s a kid!”
Ma’Khia was having problems with the two girls she attacked because they used to live in the foster home, stopped by a lot, and criticized Ma’Khia for not making her bed and keeping the house clean. She reached her breaking point, and before someone called the cops she called up her father to help her take care of the other girls.
Myron Hammonds has had a warrant out for his arrest since January.
He has a long and documented criminal history.
He plays the loving Dad on his Facebook page, but he had to be taken to court to prove that he was the father.
Ma’Khia was also missing from her home last June.
