Proof Keith Lamont Scott Had A Gun

Charlotte-Mecklenburg, North Carolina – Local news agencies have released a picture showing officers rendering aid to Keith Scott. Beside Scott: the gun he was holding.

Tuesday afternoon Charlotte Police officer Brentley Vinson shot and killed a man that witnesses claimed was unarmed. Keith Scott’s family claimed that he absolutely did not have a gun, that he was sitting in his car reading a book when a black police officer gunned him down for being black.

Read our 5 true facts about the shooting here.

Immediately after the shooting, chief of police Kerr Putney released an official statement that Keith Scott did have a gun and it was recovered at the scene of the shooting. Keith Scott’s daughter posted an hour long Facebook stream after the shooting berating officers on scene and stating that her dad didn’t have a gun.

Unfortunately, everyone believed her over the (black) Charlotte-Mecklenburg chief of police. Because many news outlets used Scott’s daughter’s angry Facebook post as a source of “reliable” information, riots broke out in Charlotte, NC last night. Over a dozen police officers were injured, several civilians were injured, stores were looted, and I-85 was shut down while “protesters” set fires on the interstate. “Protesters” even stole things out of the back of semi trucks on the interstate and set them on fire

Read our original story about the incident here

All this meaningless destruction and violence took place because most media outlets pushed the story of a “disabled black man reading a book shot dead while waiting on his 9 year old to get off the bus”.

We kept telling everyone, please wait until facts are released, but the rioting continued.

Read our article about the rioting here.

Chief of Police Kerr Putney released a statement today saying a gun was found on scene, a book was not found on scene, and the officers warned Scott several times to drop the weapon before they fired on him. Chief Putney even stated that witnesses saw Scott with the gun. 

On top of that, a witness even took a picture of the gun that Scott had while officers are providing first aid to Keith Scott. Watch the WSOC 9 footage below

    Doesn’t matter. These people don’t exist on facts. They’re completely impervious to truth. Gun? “It’s a plant!” Criminal record? “He was turning his life around!” Shot by a black officer? “Uncle Tom white puppet traitor!” No facts will curb an animal’s behavior, and that’s exactly what rioters have reduced themselves to; brainless, rabid animals.

    • ServantAvenger

      Thank you, someone finally put my thoughts into words, and actually shares them.

    • Nick Hall

      Nail meet hammer! These people who support blm are sub human garbage anyways. They try and find any reason to errupt into lawlessness. Until they start taking these rioters and looters out by any means needed this will never stop. They are also too stupid that they think burning down and destroying their own neighbor hoods. Sad part is we tax payers end up paying for it in the end!

        What kind of sub human garbage plant’s a gun at the feet of the man they just murdered?

          Charlotte Police officers do..

          • Tracy Lynn Prichard

            Were you there? Or are you just making ignorant and uninformed statements.

          • Yea right

            Bottom line is that it has happened. Not saying it happened here but releasing the video would certainly help.

          • dtwenty7

            The video shows it very clearly.. 2nd time in how many years they’ve done this on video?? How many times have they done it while not being filmed?? It’s obviously a systemic problem. Much like the Seattle Police had to deal with after murdering John Williams.. When you’ve been caught planting guns twice in less than 3 years, that’s a pretty big indicator of systemic corruption.. Period.. You don’t need a college degree to see, or know it. If you can’t, then your senses are likely blurred by implicit racism, or maybe it’s not implicit, and you’re a proud racist?? Either way, it’s murder..

          • nom de plume

            Yes. I don’t know the cases you’re referencing, but I’ve read that the cops are being increasingly caught planting evidence. Also, as video is becoming a more common occurrence around police, my guess is that corrupt police are similarly developing “tricks” for coping under those circumstances. (See my other post about how they seem to be deliberately moving fast with the awareness of the phone camera. Many of their moves are under a second – they’re very fast – and they also employ at least one commonly known sleight of hand trick.)

          • gman8336

            Assuming too much. Even if the guy had a gun. The Chier, the mayor, and at least one Attorney has seen all the videos and they do not show this man doing anything aggressive whatsoever. We are talking about taking a life here. Imagine one of your family members in this situation.

        • gman8336

          They are gloves. Two of them. You can clearly see an officer changing his gloves and dropping two gloves. You can even see them flutter a bit and blow in the wind slightly.

          • Ed

            That’s not true. Even the crooked police chief admitted the video they refuse to release doesn’t show a gun. And the officer that murdered Scott had his body camera off.

            So a black cop murders a black man because… fuck black people? You realize how retarded you sound, right?

          • dontlaughpeople

            An eye-witness said the plain-clothes officer in the red shirt (white male) was the man who shot and killed Scott, not the black cop that has been pictured.

          • BobEngineer

            More of the same BullSh** as the wife’s claim that her husband wasn’t armed.
            The wife’s sworn signed statement stated that Scott had a 9 mm hand gun that wasn’t licensed. She also stated multiple times on the video that he wasn’t armed knowing that he always wore the ankle holster with the gun in it.

          • Andrew Pfisterer

            All lives matter it’s just too bad that some of the most hateful, brainwashed, idiotic people in this country are our police. TheY have a job that enforces immoral laws so it changes them for the worse… and they all think they are heroes. And they will wonder what the hell I am talking about because like I said they are morons…and then they turn around and call anyone else a moron who doesn’t agree with the state of police today… or the police state of today. Somehow they say that a gun laying next to a dead man is evidence he had a gun…like police have never been caught planting evidence..
            If police were here only for stopping people from murder, theft, robbery, rape, physical altercations, and shady business practices I would fully support them 100% I will never support them enforcing victimless crimes because when they do that, they are the ones who create a victim. When marijuana is labeled schedule 1 and it is pretty much the most medicinal plant on the planet now proven to cure several different types of cancers that is a huge contradiction and the law should be Null and void. And if a cop drinks alcohol and thinks he has the right to punish someone for possession of a substance that is a hell of a lot more safe he is not only a hypocrite but a complete asshole. And most of them have smoked weed in the past but yet still think it is ok to destroy the lives of people they don’t know. TheY love the power high. Talking to police is usually like talking to a brick wall, a brick wall that wants to punch u in the face if u disagree with him. If cops would wake up and start being humble they would finally help us take back the country from the same rich criminals that are screwing us all including the police.. I know I know many non violent police officers think I deserve to die or be tortured now because I want peace and cooperation.

          • jesse flynt

            No, he said it does not difinatively show what he had in his left hand, wether it was a gun or not. The video does show an empty ankle holster for the gun you claim he doesn’t have and a gun on the ground immediately after the shoot. Its by the cop in the red shirts foot. The misinformation propagated about this by members of the public is evil. You are evil. You just want to hate people, no matter how much you have to ignore and selectively hear to do it. I don’t know what else to call that except evil.

          • jesse flynt

            The ankle holster was on His r ankle as he exited the car, just so you know.

          • nom de plume

            There is NO gun on the ground immediately after the shoot. The cop in red hands Vinson a gun and he plants it by the body. Then the cop in red picks the gun up and drops it between his own feet at the same time Vinson throws his gloves to the ground after he’s finished planting the evidence.

            If there’s anyone SELECTIVELY HEARING and IGNORING, as you put it, it’s only YOURSELF. If there’s anyone wanting to hate people, it’s YOURSELF and your own bigotry and racism. The fact that you defend a police EXECUTION OF AN INNOCENT AMERICAN CITIZEN is what is EVIL.

          • jesse flynt

            So these cops just started throwing and planting evidence in plain view of everyone including the woman holding the camera phone and multiple civilian witnesses ( who corroborate the officers testimony by the way) and the woman who was married to the man stands there and says nothing? Not even after the fact? Not even days later does she or her lawyer say that there is video evidence that they planted evidence at the scene? Do you know why? Because her lawyer has to observe ethics and can’t say things he knows for a fact arent true. You have no such burden, as is evidenced here on this forum.

          • nom de plume

            What these cops do is with the awareness that Mrs Scott is there, in her grief and shock, with a phone camera moving around. She’s not sure what she’s filming – or what she’s supposed to be filming – she’s just doing what she can. And they know that too. These cops, they move like pros – in less than a second with each maneuver – so as to evade normal video playback. They even employ sleight of hand tricks – that’s how sly they are (eg he drops his gun between his feet at the same time Vinson flings his gloves, thereby distracting any video viewers’ eyes) You can’t see what they do unless you slow the footage down to under a second. A youtube only goes second by second. That’s why the most many viewers see are things magically appearing and disappearing. But if you go under a second – you can the cops moving and doing what they did – that made these things appear and disappear to the general viewing audience. You see how Vinson is standing with his legs spread wide apart? Why is he standing in that weird position? He must need balance. BALANCE in order to move fast while a phone camera is filming.

            The only one without a burden of TRUTH or CONSCIENCE or SCRUPLES in this conversation is YOURSELF. Hiding and covering up for CORRUPT cops. Why? Because you’re a racist. And you don’t give a damn if cops execute black Americans. Because they’re not AMERICANS to YOU are they! They don’t have the same rights as YOU under the Constitution. And you’re such an ignoramus – you don’t even understand the Constitution or what police are legally allowed to do. You’re a DUMB IGNORANT RACIST. And you deserve every word in that sentence! If the shoe fits, wear it!

          • jesse flynt

            Wow. To anyone tracking this coversation look above at Nom’s last comment for some world class mental gymnastics, grasping at straws and desperation. Your right, call Mrs. Scott’s lawyer and bring your observations to his attention. For the record, I love black people, which is why I’m glad officer Vinson is alive and well.

          • nom de plume

            This scurvy crew of kkkers really should let it all hang out since their heroes are so openly executing American citizens on a daily basis. Why are these cowards making them take all the heat? Instead of saying, “Blue Lives Matter,” they should just speak their minds more openly, and with feeling: “Brown shirts matter! Brown shirts matter! Heil Hitler!” Poor little ignorant white trash bastards shouldn’t just say it among themselves at their White Sheet Specials.

          • GetRealBitches

            Funny how you can call all white people kkkers, cowards and nazi white trash. But, let me say some actual facts like 10x the amount of black males don’t have a clue who their daddy is ( makes your race the more bastardized huh? ) And maybe the reason that white people say things amongst themselves is because you whiny ass niggers have laws that make it a HATE crime when a white person “does” anything to a nigger, and racial intimidation when one “says” anything negative about you. But yet you can run around without fear of reprisal and say whatever you like. Its nothing but reverse racism today. Had to dummy up a test so more blacks could be firemen in New York. Nigga pleez! Have you ever heard of something so stupid? Oh, let me guess…that’s whiteys fault too because of the schools you didn’t show up at right? It’s considered very PC today to defend black folk. You have guilted the shit out of a certain group of whites who are their own worst enemy. Fortunately those idiots are in small numbers. It was enough though to push O’monkey over the top to be president. What? Did you think the black vote actually got him in office? Yeah right. Remember this number, 13%. That numbers not enough to do shit except make stupid white people feel guilty for some shit that happened 200 yrs ago. You’ve chosen for the past 50 to show your too stupid to assimilate peacefully into society and be productive. I mean damn, it takes less time to teach a chimpanzee to learn sign language. Hell give me 50 yrs and I could probably teach a silverback gorilla to talk! Fuck off whiney ass moon cricket bitches. All of you think you bought the last glock made I guess. Or at least stole the last one I meant.

          • Pete Griffin

            Where is the video?

          • Pete Griffin

            The police have had plenty of time to corroborate stories, edit and doctor the dashcam and body cam videos to their liking. You cannot say that doesn’t give the police an edge in this so called “investigation”.

          • gman8336

            Having a gun is not a crime. People that saw the videos are saying the victim was calm and made not aggressive in speech or action. We are talking about taking a life here and we need to be just in what we are condoning.

          • gman8336

            And true, the Chief has admitted none of the videos show the man with a gun.

          • Amanda Mahoney

            It is when you’re a felon. And moreover it is when you’re using drugs (Or alcohol).

          • GetRealBitches

            But having a gun when your a felon is. And if they called in the l,ate of the car his info came back with “prior firearms charges” he had been convicted of. You people act like they just walked by, picked out a black man reading an imaginary book ( oh I forgot, that’s code for smoking weed) and said “hey, let’s get him out of the car and shoot him for no reason”. Obviously they had his info ( criminal history) and approached with caution or they would’ve shot him in the damn car! So he had plenty of chances. Could’ve left the gun in the car got out and complied. Could’ve dropped the gun one of the 7 times he was asked etc… If he was so calm obviously his wife knew him best. She was the one screaming to her husband “don’t do it” over and over.

          • BillyHoWCR

            Actually in this case it was as he was a convicted criminal and can’t have a gun. And obviously seeing the empty ankle holster in the video plain as day shows the gun was not in it’s holster and thus likely brandished. Brandish a weapon against a cop and you will be shot.

          • nom de plume

            No they don’t or they would have released it by now. There is nothing in the police footage to show that he had a gun. Their own footage of the victim’s hands show the victim’s hands EMPTY.

        • ThomofWI

          LOL

        • nom de plume

          Yes, indeed. Video has now surfaced showing that the gun wasn’t there before. So it looks like the police planted it.

          • Brenden

            No those are latex gloves that are dropped and picked back up by the cops. The gun is being straddled by the cop in the red shirt. You can see him walk over to it and straddle it and keep it close to his left foot. He even keeps his left foot still as he leans over to pick up and hand the black cop the latex glove he drops. The gloves and gun are all visible at one point of the video.

          • nom de plume

            No, that is not what I am referencing. Before the gloves are dropped, the cop in red passes a gun to Vinson who then plants it at the scene. The cop in red later picks up the gun – not the gloves – and then he hides it between his feet to kick it over to yet another location. Vinson picks up the 2 gloves.

          • Brenden

            The gun is visible in keiths wife video before the cop in red straddles it. Your going to see a huge, convoluted conspiracy rather than the simple facts that are before your eyes. You are an example of why race relations are so bad and the reason black people will continue to suffer. Black people are suffering because of this nonsense narrative that cops and white people are out to get them, and it creates hostility in the black community that feel justified in provoking authorities and lashing out at the idea that the world hates them and is out to destroy them. Five cops (including the black officer that shot keith scott) do not wake up, put a throw away gun in their pockets and say to themselves; “im gonna kill an innocent black guy today”. Its a lie and a dangerous one at that (see the riots) that people like you are perpetuating and doing great damage to the black community! It also takes legitimacy away from the real cases of police brutality.

          • nom de plume

            The African American community is “suffering” Great White Hope because cops are shooting and killing people left and right, and racists like yourself keep justifying and rationalizing your RACISM.

            There’s NO gun by the curb in Mrs Scott’s video. You’re the one who needs to get a grip on the facts, buster. The cop is red gives Vinson a gun, capiche? Vinson puts it down by the body, capiche? Then, the cop in red is looking at it, and then, picks it up again. Capiche? Then, Vinson discards two gloves he’s wearing (to plant evidence), flinging them to the ground – those things you see in two spots near his feet. Capiche? At the same time Vinson is flinging down his gloves, the cop in red drops the gun he lifted between his feet. Capiche?

            By the time Mrs Scott’s video is over – Vinson has picked up his gloves again, but, the cop in red still has the gun straddled between his feet … and .. the spot near the curb is STILL EMPTY.

            Right by him.

            In the next video – made by someone else – just a few minutes later – there’s that object near the curb .. and .. is the gun still between the cop in red’s feet?

            Hope that wasn’t too factually complicated for your simplistic racist biased brain!

          • Brenden

            Your blind ignorance is amazing!! Now that we know keith scotts wife filed a restraining order a month ago because he beat her and their 8 year old son in the face/head and threatened to kill them both with a gun he OWNS/bought illegally, does that change your position? So this saint/patriarch you’re working so hard to defend was a violent, career criminal. Just like i said before, blm and people like you are the reason the good people in the black community are hostages in their own communities and are denied the oportunity to sieze the american dream. You are defending the violent criminals like keith scott who are perpetrating this violence againt other innocent, hard working black people. So tell me how a racist hates some, but not all black people. The answer is they dont! In fact i want nothing more than to see the many, good black citizens of the united states see true freedom from their current oppressors; the violent, black crimimals that beat, rape, murder, force to deal drugs, enforce street snitching penalties,etc., that plague the black community. My position is a rational one that begs for the liberation of the millions of true black victims in america. Yours keeps millions of black people captive and subject to extreme violence. So who’s the real racist?

          • nom de plume

            It’s irrelevant what happened in their marriage. A citizen has rights under the Constitution; besides which, the police didn’t even know who he was.
            In addition, she made some kind of complaint which she later fully withdrew. On top of that, he later incurred a traumatic brain injury which altered his abilities as a person significantly.

            The only thing the police knew is that he had a T.B.I. and had just taken his medicine as his wife kept telling them. She also told them repeatedly that he was not armed.

            The police had his license number, too, yet they didn’t look up his information. They basically just executed an innocent and defenseless man at a school bus stop.

            Within the same week, police arrested two extremely dangerous persons – the NYC bomber suspect and the Wa State mall shooter who had just killed five people – in both cases, without even harming either of them.

            Keith Lamont Scott wasn’t even a suspect.

            So get real and give up the b.s.

          • Brenden

            1. He cant smoke weed and have a gun at the same time.

            2. Cops run his plates and they immediatly know who he is (and you claim to know they didnt run his plates how??)

            3. Gun ownership is not protected under the constitution for felons (which is irrelivant as he was carrying a gun while in the commision of a crime)

            4. Stop rushing to the aid of disgusting, violent criminals and start to throw your suppprt behind the black people being violated everyday by scum like keith scott.

            5. If you dont understanf how #4 is a huge part of the answer to helping the black community to thrive in the united states, then…

            YOU ARE THE PROBLEM

          • nom de plume

            No, you are the problem because you are fully irrational and not responding to any substantive arguments on the basis of LAW or FACTS.

            Are you a police officer?

            There is NO evidence that he had a gun, and, since the police department released the rest of the video footage.

            There is NO evidence that they phoned in to identify him via license plates. They did NOT know who he was.

            There is NO evidence he was ‘a disgusting violent criminal.’ We are INNOCENT under the United State Constitution which you clearly advocate shredding.

            So why don’t you find yourself a time machine and go take a long trip to a land where you’d fit in fine: Nazi Germany. People like YOU back THEN were ALSO the “problem.”

          • Brenden

            Continue to be blind! Look at my disque profile and see what i advocate for and tell me im the problem. I want nothing more than to see black people see true freedom in this country, but there are serious obstacles.

          • nom de plume

            The only argument you seem to be making is that someone who is black should not have the same constitutional rights as any other citizen.

          • nom de plume

            This is a discussion about what happened to an American citizen waiting for his son to come home on a school bus; sitting in his own car not bothering anyone, minding his own business.

            We have something called the United States Constitution. Try reading it:
            America’s Founding Documents

            Police are not allowed under our most sacred laws to behave the way these police behaved. They violated the rights of an American citizen.

            The police are not allowed to murder people. That’s what we call a police state. Which is not what we are supposed to be.

            The police are also supposed to understand that. The limits of their powers and their responsibility to respect that document and the rights of the People.

            I hope that helps. Sleep on it and may the angels guide you to higher reasoning faculties.

            Actually, I am the only one in this conversation who seems to be concerned about the millions of black people who are having thier lives torn apart by other black predators. You know, the ones you’re so worried about protecting. End of the day, scott keith was a terrible human being both before and after his accident (see his record). You keep defending him, and I’ll keep defending the people he terrorized and brutalized (most certainly all other black people). This entire debate were having centers around having the moral fortitude and honesty to understand two simple facts:

            1. The black community is suffering imeasurably at the hands of other black people

            2. The black community is the only one that can turn this around by doing the hard work to expose and punish those who are damaging their culture and its reputation

          • gman8336

            No really. She could have been referring to the officers as well. But, the evidence is showing he was not aggressive in speech or action. Having a gun is not a crime.

            Does that logic mean youre a Nazi? Reasonable doubt of being under a racially charged ideology to support incarceration and death of citizens guilty of possessing a skin color? Do something useful. Get a job as a psychic or maybe a hobby that doesn’t include offering opinions posing as fact.

          • Amanda Mahoney

            Actually… It means that I paid attention to the facts. Like the fact that the officer witnessed him with marijuana and a gun. I, however, do not know if he was smoking it at that moment or if he was high. So, again, reasonable doubt of being high.

            No doubt of him being a felon that is not allowed to possess a fire arm.

          • Pete Griffin

            He never said he witnessed him smoking Marijuana.

          • nom de plume

            And they were so far from his vehicle. Their footage shows them moving in for ambush – without knowing anything – as if they’re in combat in Vietnam or Afghanistan. They act like they’re on anphetamines; they’re insane. Even veterans are saying that what they did – in foreign lands during combat – would be against the rules of combat with civilians in enemy territory. And these cops mowed down an innocent American citizen waiting for the school bus. They executed him.

            They found the marijuana later. If any of them saw him smoking, for all they know, he was smokng a regular cigarette. Besides which, you don’t shoot and kill someone for smoking marijuana. I never heard anything more absurd among police excuses before. “We had to kill him because he was smoking marijuana.” Unbelievable. Reaches new heights of absurdism.

            Sounds like these cops were ones – not smoking marijuana – but maybe TRIPPING.

          • Oculos_Prime

            The problem here is the information of him being a felon wasnt known until after he was dead. When they looked him up and used his record as an informational time machine for killing him. He wasnt the focus of their presence. They were in an undercover vehicle, and stated nothing of looking up his records before approaching? Why? Because they didn’t know him. So unless they in some why psychically carded the guy, or knew him by name, that gun (as far as they knew), was his right to carry until proven otherwise. The comment you made before suggested this was well known information. But it wasnt until after they killed him.

          • nom de plume

            That’s quite correct. They didn’t even check his license plate – right there on the back of his car to see who he was. By their own admission, they were looking for someone else in an undercover operation. Plus – this was close to the time a school bus was coming in. They have this information, too, as police. Parents come around and wait for the bus at this time. And they’re running around loose like they’re in the bush during the Vietnam War.

            Fact? Proven?

            Fact: There was a semi automatic gun recovered and photographed at the scene as a gun allegedly belonging to Keith Scott. Fact: Keith Scott was clearly wearing something around his ankle (must have been a book holster). Fact: An ankle holster was removed from the Keith Scott and photographed as evidence. Fact: A “doobee” (marijuana) was photographed as evidence removed from the vehicle. Fact: Videos from various sources that may or may not be conclusive. This is all evidence and should be introduced to a grand jury to recommend whether a black police officer should be charged and prosecuted for homicide.

            Proven: Legally only a grand jury can recommend indictment of the black police officer for prosecution on murder. If he is prosecuted and is found guilty, only then will it stand as legally proven.

            Now being that you have no bias one way or another, I’m sure you will be more than happy with whatever the grand jury recommends. 🙂

          • Pete Griffin

            Haha

            Lol jackass

          • Amanda Mahoney

            He did say that he saw the weed and the gun. Together. In a vehicle with one man occupying it.

            I love it when the best people can do is start name calling.

          • Oculos_Prime

            Im not about namecalling myself, and I rarely enforce a judgment on someone unless I’m using a persons language in an effort to create self reflection. Also Pete calling you a jackass wasnt close to his best if you read his posts. Here’s a question that’s on topic: Police are not authorized to use their sense of smell to determine the presence of narcotics. Too many officers can’t tell the difference between weed, coffee, chocolate, skunks etc. That being said, if the officers are in one vehicle and the civilian is in the drivers seat rolling something; How did the officers know it was weed he was rolling? And I mean 100% I roll cigarettes all the time and there are hundred upon hundreds of tobacco choices and 10x that of weed. Its not all green.
            This type of question goes hand in hand with what I was mentioning earlier about being objective. At the time upon approaching the civilian, the cops did not know:

            Who he was
            What he was smoking
            Why he was at the location
            Mental/Physical State
            (Brain trauma)
            If he had criminal history

            When you use past events to create a probability of what these factors “could be”, it exacerbates the issue of racial profiling. This is dangerous because it creates a fantasy that overlays reality, where the people accusing civilians with probabilities desensitize themselves and see these real events as a sort of murder mystery. Trying to “guess who done it!” That kind of behavior is dehumanizing and I think if you imagined a member of your family who had problems with the law in the past but still a good guy in your eyes, get gunned down in front of you, whether he was carrying or not wouldnt be the first thing on your mind. It would be about the person you’d never see again. And I’m mentioning this again. How would you feel if after witnessing someone you loved die in front of you you then find out the officer responsible is put on paid leave which your tax dollars pay for the officers are literally getting paid as punishment or a sort of disciplinary action. We have to regulate this now because human beings begin to accept the things around them they truly feel they should not /cannot change until it’s too late. And the problems we ignored and dismissed become our immediate problems too. Regulation doesn’t harm anybody it makes the rules clear cut and when we find that our public servants can be proven to the public that they are indeed acting within the same laws as those who pay their checks the trust between police officers and civilians will improve. Like I said regulation doesn’t kill anybody unregulated officers who are assumed to be lawful can use that averted gaze to their advantage. So regulation doesn’t give them that opportunity and also shows concerned citizens steps are being taken to ensure that everyone feel safe and that everyone experiences due process and everyone is treated equally with The Credo innocent until proven guilty that is unequivocally what America is about.

          • nom de plume

            The police had no problem taking the recently arrested terrorist ALIVE because, in their own words, they “wanted him alive.” And this was quite clearly a highly dangerous person.

            So they are not unable to do this.

            In fact, shortly after taking this KNOWN TERRORIST ALIVE – they also arrested and took ALIVE the Washignton State mall shooter. Who had just killed five people – including a teenager who survived cancer, an elderly woman and her daughter, another woman, and a man. Yet they were able to take him alive because THE POLICE KNOW HOW TO TAKE PEOPLE ALIVE – EVEN WHEN THE INDIVIDUALS IN QUESTION ARE CLEARLY AND DEFINITIVELY EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.

            Yet, in this case, they executed an innocent man with a brain injury they were told about – who was waiting his son to come home from school. He was a father to seven children. They killed him in cold blood and planted evidence. They’re a DISGRACE to their uniforms. And people who defend this kind of disgusting corruption and criminal conduct are NOT doing the police ANY favors.

            Just like PROFESSIONAL SELF-RESPECTING police are saying – “They make good cops look bad.”

            They should be ARRESTED and fully prosecuted for, minimally, homicide.

            It was a crime for Keith Scott. Under NC law because of his prior conviction in Texas and him having spent 8 years in prison for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and eluding police with a vehicle, not only couldn’t Mr Scott not legally own a firearm he could not be in possession of one nor have ammunition on his person.

            Had he not had a gun that day he mighf very well be alive today. I don’t care that he had weed. That may actually have helped with his side effects from the TBI.

            More than likely he had a gun he knew he wasn’t supposed to have but became spooked when the police converged on him and in attempting to get out of said situation wasn’t clear headed enough after having smoked a little weed. So he hesitantly exits the vehicle but doesn’t follow the officers commands. Of course by now he is freaking out slightly because he’s got a piece strapped to his ankle and he knows as soon as they pat him down, his ass is going to prison because he is a felon in possession of a firearm.

            All this could have been avoided. Right now I am very displeased with his daughter, his nephew and his wife. All of the riots, all of the looting, all of the violence and especially the death of Justin Carr all could have been avoided and should have been avoided if one little thing had happened…if his family told the TRUTH from the beginning. However it seems to me from watching the profanity laced tirade that his daughter put on Facebook, that she, her uncle and her mother all had one thing in mind after Mr Scott was shot–they wanted a big payday from Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department. So they spun the yarn that Mr Scott had “no mother****ing gun (to paraphrase his daughter).

            Congratulations to Keith Lamont Scott’s family…you are guilty of causing the death of Justin Carr at the riots you cause by your boldfaced lies about your father/husband/brother not having a gun when he clearly had one. You all should be charged for inciting the riots and as an accessory in the murder of Justin Carr. Your lies caused that man’s death.

            Shame on all of you.

          • Pete Griffin

            I still don’t see a gun in his hand.

          • Calibabe712

            I’m going to give this one to the cops. I think they know the difference between a book and a gun. The man never put his hands up as they were at his side. Because of the angle of the police video you can’t see his hand on his left side. I don’t get why people don’t comply, stay still and allow the police to come to them. Get down on the damn ground with your hands out in front of you.

            The gun supposedly has his prints and DNA on it. It will be run through the ATF system and we will see who, if anyone it comes back registered to. The shame of this entire situation is this family is going to get rich off the fact their family member had a gun he wasn’t supposed to have. Trust me, the only tears being shed in that household are the ones over how to spend the millions they probably will get. Me personally, I wouldn’t give them squat. But CMPD and the city of Charlotte will to make this all go away. For once I would love to see a city stand up and say NO. But they are too afraid to have Jesse Jackson or “Rev” Al leading marches again. So just like everything in this country it too will get swept under the rug.

            Because they don’t have it. They planted the gun. And the additional footage they didn’t release further corroborates the fact that they planted it.

            The guilt is on the person who shot the gun. Whether people lied or not, they weren’t under oath. Shame on you for taking the time to shame a family who just lost their patriarch. If I was them, knowing that compliance doesn’t guarantee survival given how many unarmed black men have died at the hands of cops with the MSM to back them, Id lie through my teeth and get my wasted tax dollars back suing the shit out of them. Put yourself in the shoes of those who pay through taxes the cops who kill them and get away with it . If you’ve never had to live a day like that and don’t know the idea of ensuring you stay sweet and respectful to police you believe are probably going to kill your dad/spouse, and you’ll be the one paying for them to do it? Please, save your judgment. It is disgusting to see such a brazen apathetic remark. Who pulled the trigger? That person is responsible for their actions. Always.

So they incited the riot with their lies and then the fool that did shoot him is guilty also. And I guess Keith Scott isn’t responsible for his actions, huh?

Also, i have a liscense to carry a concealed weapon, as i am a US citizen who has never committed a felony (unlike the multiple felon keith scott who has been to prision for assault with a deadly weapon and intent to kill). However, that liscense to carry does not give me permission to ignore authorities instructions to surrender my weapon so they can check the legitimacy of my permit and feel safe while doing so. It happens regularly! You are sending up a red herring hoping that rediculous position will make the justified shooting of keith scott unjustified…it doesnt!

            Hillary and Trump are the same wolf. You take one look at who is funding Hillary and again who is funding Trump you’ll find that each of their Mega rich donators all have projects together. You don’t see partisan politics being played with the elite. Only with the working class do you see this. Because the people with the most money make the rules. So they insure that whoever is going to make them money or pass amendments and laws in their favor of less regulation (which both Hillary and Trump support) will become president no matter what. they use trigger words like Bush Junior did with Terror terror terror Terror to create fear in us as a nation so we would support a war that takes up almost half of our national spending and it’s crippling us meanwhile the elite that own megashares in military infrastructure essentially make Bank on all the war we have our hands in. Then big Pharma we have Obamacare that was passed without vote in the middle of the night. This essentially made Healthcare free which is absolutely false. Making returns from the government for the pharmacies that we’re supposed to be created allegedly creating more jobs a 1% return so yeah free service only with unstocked shelves. Well Bush jr. Was Republican and Obama was Democrat but both pushed for deregulation and fewer laws to govern these giant corporations while we Americans got robbed killed and drugged. The system is using us all Hook Line & Sinker and if we just paid attention to who mainstream media demonized compared to whose behavior is excused you would see the most likely group Americans would most likely be racist towards get locked in prison for a crime that if a corporate CEO committed would be completely excused. Which literally just happened with CEO from Wells Fargo making over ten million dollars stealing from citizens using Wells Fargo by creating false accounts at the cost of citizens was completely excused and kept the money. In the same day headlines for mainstream media were of two black girls who stole makeup from a department store being called scum and how they deserved to go to jail. It is a rhetoric that has become so ridiculous where over 10 million dollars of stolen money doesn’t compare to two black girls stealing makeup. I really mean when I say Trump and Clinton are the same wolf and neither of them have yours or my interests at heart. They sold out long ago.

      Rioting and looting is not the answer. But it is understandable that PEOPLE might stoop to such levels when they feel targeted, afraid and helpless. How would you feel if your life didn’t matter? Or the life of your child or brother or father. I would be quite angry and potentially violent as well. Enough is enough. Law enforcement officers should be well trained enough to disarm people without using fatal force. Use a taser or shoot someone in the arm. Even if someone was a convicted felon with a gun in their possession. Do you really think they are going to shoot a cop at a traffic stop for no reason? Give a little benefit of the doubt. You think the police are getting a lot of heat for their behavior? Imagine if these black men were turning around and shooting the cops for no reason instead. You all would be in an uproar and maybe you would burn town the black neighborhoods instead of your own but I’m sure some of you would resort to violence. These people have a right to be upset. Black lives do matter, well at least they should.

      • Skitz00

        “Law enforcement officers should be well trained enough to disarm people without using fatal force. Use a taser or shoot someone in the arm.”

        Come on, back to reality. When the cops confront a person who pulls out a gun, what happens is the cops yell clear orders to drop the weapon. That is their training and they all do that. If that person refuses to comply, and raises the weapon, the police shoot to kill. That is their training also and they are correct in that case to do so. If you had a better understanding of the realities of these situations you would do the same thing.

        It only takes a fraction of a second for a person to pull the trigger. If a gun is pointed at you would you debate the gunman? Mace the gunman? Taser the gunman? All are potentially fatal mistakes. It’s an act of bravery when the police take the time to yell “drop the gun”.

        Wouldn’t it be far better if the confronted party just kept his hands in the open and said “yes sir”?

        • Dartsblaster2011

          In an open carry state the cops have NO RIGHT to demand someone drop their weapon unless they are threatening someone with it.

          • Skitz00

            If you ever get stopped by the police and are foolish enough to step out of your vehicle holding a gun in your hand, I hope you recover your wisdom in time to drop it if the police order you to. Then you will be alive to sue them for violating your rights if you think they have been violated.

          • codger1

            If you are carrying a pistol in your hand you are playing with fire. If the police or anyone else feels there is a possible eminent threat, it can be construed to be illegally brandishing and there is a good chance you can be shot. Spend $15, get a holster and visibly display the pistol for all to see. No holster, tuck your shirt in and carry in your waistband so that the full grip is clearly visible. Wearing a coat or sweater, pull them up over the grip of the gun so that it is in full display. Don’t want to be bothered with all that, then go ahead and roll the dice.

          • Oculos_Prime

            And as such, if it is proven that he was indeed carrying a gun, that changes the outcome and the police will have been within their rights.

            However it has NOT been proven yet, and until it is found whether he was armed or was indeed carrying a book, the information regarding his previous record isn’t by itself, justification for killing an ex felon. So, before we come to conclusions attempting to use past criminal activity to provide an immeasurable probability, we’ll have to wait for an official statement and the undeniable proof that supports it.

          • codger1

            So, black police officers are all part of this conspiracy to shoot black men? All the officers at the scene can hear his wife yelling at them that she is filming them with her phone-cam, so they are conveniently going to drop a throw away gun knowing full well it may be recorded? Yes, the police chief did announce they recovered a gun at the scene of the incident. Your statement insinuates that there could be a possible cover-up from all patrol officers up to the chief.

            I read the responses from the supporters of the “Black Lives Matter” movement and they all feel the present system needs to be replaced in lieu of improved. They don’t have any specifics on who or what will replace law enforcement in the black communities, they just want to make it clear that in no way is a white controlled system equitably in their future.

            Since it’s next to impossible to find enough qualified white or black applicants among the those presently applying for law enforcement jobs, just who and how is the black community going to find enough qualified officers among their own people to produce an all black police department that is qualified and will keep the residents happy? The answer is always it has to be better than what we have now. My answer is, be careful what you wish for.

            You do when they know you’re a convicted felon (not allowed to carry). Even if they don’t know that, if they tell you to put it down, you MUST do it.

          • Sionedra

            Fair or not, perhaps one reason blacks are treated differently is that the police know black males make up less than 7 percent of the population yet commit over 50 percent of all murders.

          • fit2go

            Fair or not you say. So fairness does not matter? It is to neither be expected or required? I have never committed a crime, not even a speeding or parking ticket. I have an Ivy league education, no debt, no poor mental or social history and I am a “good citizen” by all of the standards set forth by White culture. Yet, if I should legally carry my gun, or ever get stopped by police, I am to be presumed guilty and more capable of committing a crime than you because I am not White? Fair or not, perhaps one reason that men are given higher pay than women is because employers know that men are more likely not to have to go on maternity leave and take time off from work, thus making them more able to commit to work.

          • Sionedra

            I would say if you are a police officer and your life is on the line, fair matters squat. Let me ask you something, suppose you parked your car as 2 Muslim men walked past in robes, each carrying an AK 47 would you get out of your car or hop back in and drive off?

          • fit2go

            Are you a Police officer? Because if you are, then you take an oath to uphold the law which includes: The widely used oath embraced by the International Association of Chiefs of Police reads, “On my honor, I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. – Fair matters a great deal.
            As for your question: I would view two Muslims dressed in robe carrying AK 47’s the same way I would view 2 White men wearing jeans and an NRA shirt with or without tattoos. Why do you think White men carrying guns are any less scary than those Muslims? Stereotypes of White men carrying guns could have non-whites afraid that these men are KKK members or neo-Nazis’ or perhaps of the same mindset of the Colorado movie theater shooter, or Columbine or going postal etc. etc. You see how that can be a scary sight too? I’m not White obviously, but I believe you have a right to your hatred and prejudices just like everyone else. You can hate for the sake of hating no explanations from you are being requested nor required. Oh, BTW, I am a registered independent, formerly registered Republican who votes. I was a Republican due to the fact that it benefits my income bracket to vote so, but I see no political party as being more righteous than the other. I have never voted democrat though. I state that because the next positon will be name calling and liberal this and that. not this time though. I am quite conservative and even if it means that I “out of touch and non-progressive”. I follow the Creators laws and ways, not mans.

          • Sionedra

            Why do you think I am going to call you names? Do you think from the conversation that I am that petty? Well yeah I guess you do since you have decided I am full of hatred and prejudices. My first comment was just quoting a statistic that is a fact. I did not say whether I thought it was fair or not that the police officers treated the whites differently than the blacks, just that the fact of it should be considered fair or not.

            No. I am not a police officer, but I feel for them. BLM is making an already difficult job much more so. You seem like a very intelligent person so I am sure you keep up on the news…you’ve seen the protesters marching down the streets chanting kill all cops. The cops that have died recently as a direct result of this? I’m not a cop and I am scared by it.

            And kudos to you on your stance on Muslims. because to be honest, if it was me, I would keep right on driving, then I would probably notify the police. I don’t know if it is fear that motivates me or prejudice, I do not know any Muslims personally.

            Anyway, it was interesting to talk to you, and I am sorry you feel I am some name calling, hate filled, prejudicial white person. That is your right also.

          • bertonneau

            Exactly, Black people aren’t in jail more because they’re black, it’s because they break the law more. I live in the mountains, but I go to a city where the demographic is heavily black and I can just see by the attitudes, the walk the talk etc that these folks are looking for trouble and are often just ignorant. That’s your choice, but you deal with the consequences of those choices. Show me a black man or woman with a decent job of which there are millions available in the US who is doing what we are all supposed to be doing everyday and Ill show you someone whose probably doing just fine and has few if any problems in life that the rest of us regardless of color don’t have.

          • Tim Buktu

            Fucking bingo — a fact liberals, progressives, Democrats and most blacks refuse to admit. A black male is 833% more likely to commit a violent crime than anyone else, so if your job is to stop crime, you’re going to actively target and be more cautious towards black males.

          • bertonneau

            OK. let’s say for argument sake the two videos show what someone could describe as discrimination due to color of skin. Did the black guy walk away alive? Did he follow the officers directions? Was he legal to carry the gun? If all was yes than the police probably owe him an apology, but he came home and although pissed lived to see another day and carry on with his life. Did Keith Scott on teh other hand do this? No. He didnt folow directions there was a gun involved and teh police felt their lives might be in danger and so reacted. You just dont argue or fight with the police. You follow their directions, do what they say and if everything is clear in teh end you walk away. They are law enforcement we are supposed to feel a little oppressed or intimidated by them They are the police. It’s what they do. Thank you police officers for being there to protect us and keep law and order in our society. You get it right almost always and thank you for your service.

          If he pointed a gun it’s a different story. Where is the proof that Scott picked up and aimed a gun anywhere near a police officer? And why would any sane person (black or white) ever stop out of the car holding a gun? It doesn’t make sense.

        O.M.G. Seriously? Have you never seen any of the video compilations of cops getting shot within seconds of walking up on a car for a traffic stop????? It happens ALL THE TIME!!! Go on YouTube do a search and wake up a little, pull head out of sand. How easy do you think it is to shoot someone in the ARM? You are a dingbat! So while the “bad guy with a gun” is aiming for the cops heart, in the largest part of the body, the cop should aim for a part of the body with maybe an 8 inch or less profile??? Freaking seriously??? Why don’t YOU give that a try? Get yourself a nerf gun and aim for a tree trunk, then aim for a branch the size of someone’s arm. White people do not feel any connection or obligation to support or fight for thugs of the white race. Thugs of any color deserve jail or whatever if they break the law. We do not go out and riot, loot, burn, or turn to violence every time a white thug is shot by a cop. We are not invested in their criminal behavior…..get it? Anyway, do yourself a favor, look on YouTube for compilation of traffic stops gone bad and see just how fast cops get shot for a simple traffic stop with NO PROVOCATION AND NO WARNING. Maybe you wouldn’t care about going home at night, but the cop just might want to see his/her family again. Black lives matter, so do cop lives, so do white lives………..ALL LIVES MATTER.

          • Doug Rowan

            Funny a cop was killed in Charlotte last week, where is the outrage for that? All you have to do is go to youtube to look for videos of cops getting their asses handed to them in one way or another at a traffic stop. Each stop is potentially deadly. EVERY person they stop is considered armed, until proven otherwise, that is how they go home at night. Funny you say unarmed, while you are on youtube, search unarmed person beats cop to death, or gets their gun away. Each cop that acts the way you THINK they should, there is a video showing them dying or at least ending up in the hospital.

          • Pete Griffin

            Show me those statistics or any form of proof for that matter.LOL Deplorable!

          • Doug Rowan

            LOL I give you the site to go look, which by the way I did, found hundreds of videos. Cops being attacked at a stop, some losing their weapon, and being shot with them, some where the suspect goes back to their vehicle and gets a gun shoots the police. All of these things happen, that’s why there are procedures in place. If the officer says stop, you stop, he says don’t reach in your vehicle you don’t do that. It’s for their safety as well as your own, obviously people with common sense understand this, but brats that think nothing applies to them don’t, hence why you end up shot. I know there are bad shoots, people are human, but when a black officer shoots a black suspect, tell me HOW that is racist, and deserves white people getting beat up, and stores being destroyed? Stupid.

            Or don’t, and cling to your ignorance.

          • Pete Griffin

            You still aren’t giving me real stats. For instance. In 2015, The Washington Post launched a real-time database to track fatal police shootings, and the project continues this year. As of the date this article was released, 1,502 people have been shot and killed by on-duty police officers since Jan. 1, 2015. Of them, 732 were white, and 381 were black (and 382 were of another or unknown race).

          • Pete Griffin

            Here’s some more numbers for you.

            According to the most recent census data, there are nearly 160 million more white people in America than there are black people. White people make up roughly 62 percent of the U.S. population but only about 49 percent of those who are killed by police officers. African Americans, however, account for 24 percent of those fatally shot and killed by the police despite being just 13 percent of the U.S. population. As The Post noted in a new analysis published last week, that means black Americans are 2.5 times as likely as white Americans to be shot and killed by police officers.

            U.S. police officers have shot and killed the exact same number of unarmed white people as they have unarmed black people: 50 each. But because the white population is approximately five times larger than the black population, that means unarmed black Americans were five times as likely as unarmed white Americans to be shot and killed by a police officer.

      • george orwell

        “Do you really think they are going to shoot a cop at a traffic stop for no reason?” Now, just read that and leave out “…at a traffic stop for no reason? The point is, they DON’T KNOW what a felon with a gun is going to do (or anyone with a gun, for that matter). They have families to go home to also, and when it come down to unknown person with a gun versus the police, person with gun is going to lose. This is manufactured outrage, perpetrated by outside agitators and paid for by George Soros to sew anarchy and chaos before a national election. By the way, the officer in Tulsa has been charged with first degree manslaughter, but we’re not hearing about that, because it doesn’t further the Hillary/Soros narrative.

      • Janna Weiss

        I do believe that there are some convicted felon’s that do shoot at cops at a traffic stop for no reason. It has happened so many times before. Do you trust or give the benefit of the doubt of every convicted felon? Probably not.

        Would you give credit to a person who breaks into your own home, who you do not know, that has a gun in their possession and pointed at you? Probably not. Would you give credit to a person who has molested a child that has been convicted ? Probably not.

        If someone did hurt or kill one of my family members for no reason and it could be proven that there was no reason for it and that my family did everything they were supposed to do when interacting with the police then yes I would be upset. But there have been multiple cases were people do not listen to police, are not obey their commands, and or have a weapon on them ( I am talking about the cases that it can actually be proven that those things just mention have or did happen) I am not saying in any shape or form that this then means that a police officer can just shoot whoever and whenever they want to but it does bring up concerns with the safety of police when they want to go home to their family as well.

        But with most of these incidents the family was not there and cannot say what actually happened. Just like I was not there and can not say what happened because I did not witness it personally. Because we all play apart and have to take responsibility for own actions which includes everyone involved in the situation not just the police. Being mad is fine but but resolving violence with violence is never the answer. Rioting, looting, pulling white people out of cars and beating them up because you are mad does not resolve the situation. People have the right to protest but do it in a peaceful manner and do not block streets and things to where you could put your own life at risk of being hit by a driver.

        • whataworld

          I absolutely agree that violence is not acceptable. However I am able to empathize with feeling helpless and desperate; feeling like anything but violence gets ignored. And I do not think people put in that situation deserve to be called “brainless, rabid animals” or “sub human garbage”. Those who participated in violent rioting absolutely deserve to be held accountable for their actions as they broke the law and put innocent people and property in danger.

          We are not talking about a police officer answering a call where they should suspect anything upon arrival (a weapon, a convicted felon, whatever). We are talking about traffic stops and random interactions with police officers when the victim was not doing anything wrong yet some how ends up dead. In none of these situations have the victims ever pointed a gun at a police officer: Michael Brown, Eric Gardner, Walter Scott, Freddie Gray, Sandra Bland, Philando Castile, Alton Brown. I’m sure there are tons more.

          Also whether someone is a convicted felon or not should be irrelevant because the officers don’t know that until later. What happened to innocent until proven guilty? Assumptions, stereotypes and discrimination is what is causing this tragic epidemic. Of course if a police officer asks you to put your hands up and instead you point a gun at them they are going to shoot you, in self defense. But what about the people who didn’t have guns. Or the people who at the very least never pointed them at the police. Did they deserve to die?

          Just because you do not cooperate implicitly with all the instructions of a cop, does not mean that you are a threat to their safety and should be shot.

          This isn’t just a problem within the black community. It is a problem with the mentally ill population as well. I knew a white guy who was shot 7 times (and killed) by the police on the front lawn outside his mental hospital for holding a butter knife. Half of all people who are killed by police have some sort of disability. A disability may be the reason they do not cooperate as quickly as someone else. Not cooperating with police is not a capital offense.

Blacks certainly cannot afford to doing either one and it’s even more foolish to do so since they will be held accountable when caught and will not receive understanding or mercy from anyone.

      • GCF

        Please go to your local police department and ask them if you can try an experiment with a simunitions pistol. Now I want you to shoot an armed person in the arm while he’s pointing a gun at you. Guarantee you’ll not be able to hit the arm and if you do happen to get lucky who’s to say that person is incapacitated enough that they can’t shoot back. Really really think about that for a second. As far as the taser for some people the taser has little effect especially if the probes don’t connect fully. Now you have a person with a gun pointed at you and your dead. Movies aren’t real life. Next point look up fatal motor vehicle stops, bad guys don’t want to go back to jail for life so they will shoot you in hopes of getting away. Kyle Dinkheller look it up.

        • whataworld

          Who said anything about someone pointing a gun at the cops? In all of these fatalities that people are outraged about, that was never the case. Most of them the people are completely unarmed. And now dead.

          • GCF

            You said shoot the person in the arm or taser them, that would mean they pointed a gun at me, sorry but I’m going home tonight and your not cause I’m neutralizing the threat

          • whataworld

            Yeah, some how all these people who were unarmed ended up shot dead. You would think that wouldn’t happen unless a gun was being pointed at the cops. But for whatever reason these police officers feel threatened by these unarmed men to the point where they shoot them dead. I think a taser or a shot to the arm/shoulder that is reaching for the “weapon” is a perfectly reasonable expectation of law enforcement.

            If someone points a gun at a cop they are asking to get shot and that would be justifiable. However NONE of these deaths have followed that situational timeline.

          • GCF

            Exactly what deaths are you talking about, maybe we aren’t talking the same incident. And if not well then sorry. I do still stand by the shooting the arm, not trained that way and will never train anyone to shoot to wound. Wounded people can still shoot back

          • whataworld

            Michael Brown, Eric Gardner, Walter Scott, Philando Castile, Alton Brown, Terence Crutcher, Keith Scott…And I’m sure the list could go on.

          • GCF

            Michael Brown assaulted a PO and was going for his gun (do you think he was just going to admire it). Absolutely justified. Walter Scott the officer has been charged. Freddie gray proven that the PO didn’t do anything criminal. Sandra bland a suicide. Terence Crutcher officer was just charged yesterday or today can’t remember. Keith Scott (which is what I thought we were originally debating) well he also had a gun (which as a felon shouldn’t have had)

          • whataworld

            “Proven”?? Suicide?? You must be joking. Freddy Gray and Sandra Bland are both totally unbelievable examples of entire police departments colluding to get away with murder.

            For Terence Crutcher and Walter Scott the fact that the officers were charged(with fairly weak expected sentencing) doesn’t bring back those lives or deal with the issue at hand. The law enforcement officials who are paid by the citizens of this country to protect us all, are the ones who have become the threat to those same citizens. The color of your skin should not play a role here. I an a white woman and I am not afraid when I get pulled over by a cop. But I am aware that is a privilege.

            Michael Brown did assault a police officer, and he should have been arrested, but not killed. And yes he did have a gun. But it was not in his hand, or being pointed at an officer. Instead there were two cops on top of him with their knees in his back and their guns out. Yes he did reach for his pocket. But given that two cops had physical contact with him at that moment(and for about 30 seconds before they shot him), you would think they could have used a taser, or as I mentioned before, shot at the arm reaching for the pocket which was 6 inches away from the barrel of the cops gun.

            And finally Keith Scott. Whether he had a gun or not is still being determined. The video his wife released showed his body on the ground after he had been shot but there was no gun next to it like in the image at the top of this article that surfaced on the news a couple days ago. Which seems a little fishy to me. If he did have a gun, it was in his hand by his side, never pointed at anyone.

          • GCF

            The coroners report says suicide what do you want me to say. Marilyn Mosbey went after the PO in the Freddie gray case, all have been dropped – why there is no proof beyond a reasonable doubt that they caused his death. Crutcher and Scott – guess well have to wait and see. Michael Brown your confused that was what started this whole black lives matter, he reached into Darren Wilson’s cruiser window going for his gun (where 2 shots went off). I know what your talking about and that case also was justified, just because you dont have your hand in your pocket on the trigger doesn’t mean you cannot manipulate the trigger. Keith Scott well like I said earlier the family was shown all video and if there was no gun they wouldnt be keeping quiet about it. They’d be telling everyone who would listen.

          • Oculos_Prime

            If you ask for evidence for black people who were unarmed and shot, I believe you received it. To then take a list and either defend or explain justification for each wrongdoing doesn’t make it right. Shooting an unarmed civilian when there are other options MUST be a priority regardless of color, criminal background, or sex. Equality is a necessary attribute of a true democratic systems survival. Excusing the death of someone who follows the law is a very unfortunate action, that uses opinion to justify action. The law must be followed by BOTH parties, officer AND suspect and any straying from that needs to be investigated. Much of the controversy people are discussing is the allowance of indicting and sentencing of police who are suspected of wrongdoing to be allowed by police force and D.A.s to investigate their own department. This allows for tampering and destruction of evidence that only creates more distrust in the community of fair and equal trials. It would both protect officers and their reputations, to have investigations on police handled by uninvolved parties, as well as being a step to admit that humans are simply that, and a badge doesn’t grant a 100% accurate and functioning moral barometer.

        If you weren’t out there targeting other people black, white, yellow, brown, red and blue and you didn’t have illegal guns (because they steal them or by them from those who steal them. If you were at home with your family instead of out in the street. If you were at your job or even had a job. If police didn’t see only the dregs. If the community policed itself. If parents, parented instead of watching Oprah. If……if……if people had some kind of internal conscience or something that told them right from wrong that they actually listened to. But then they’d have to take consequences of their behavior and “that’s not fair” “it’s all their fault” my (insert person here) wouldn’t do such a thing” “our lives matter more than anyone else no matter how bad our behavior” and we can’t have that.

      • Alex Moon

        Just curious .. how does breaking into and looting a Walmart CAUSE people to STOOP to such levels? Truth is .. blacks do not care one whit about another black thug who got caught. They all know very well that there likely WAS a gun. Some then use this incident as just a handy excuse to cart off a 52-inch LED TV.

            The family saw the videos that haven’t been released to the public yet. Do you really think that if he only had a book in the video the family wouldn’t be in front of a camera saying that fact. But what do you hear from the family “crickets” . Know what that tells us he had a gun.

          that would be a good observation if that had happened. Thing is – you can see it doesn’t come from the officer who is hunched over the “suspect”, it comes from the officer who is standing away from the “suspect” If falls to the ground from the right hand side of the video posted by the wife. If it was in his hands, wouldn’t it have come from the officer on the left hand side of the “suspect”? The officer who was actively searching the “suspect” and not the officer who was rifling through his own pockets?

          • evaphillips

            Well I pray the truth come out in the end and justice prevails.

        You can see the gun hitting another officer in the leg as it is tossed to the ground from the right off screen. 1:45 in the wife’s video shows it clearly not there, then in the air, then on the ground.

      • Tracy Lynn Prichard

        You’re a laughable moron. His wife’s little video does nothing but prove the officer was justified in shooting. And what kind of low life trash even forms the thought when their spouse’s life is in danger of “”ohh, let me gets a video of the po-lice so maybe I can sue em’ if they fuck up.” Maybe if she would’ve put 150% of her effort into trying to connect with her husband and try to get him to comply, instead of half-assed doing it midway through her phone recording, it possibly could have changed the outcome.

      I bet you won’t look at one link because as per the usual, you have to maintain your status and M.O. D. The message is that the same things can be said of every ethnic group, especially the White people. The difference is that it is okay to point out everyone else for their faults but NEVER speak ill of the so-called supreme beings. Whites are not ALL or mostly ALL good people. Whites don’t need to hold protests or defend their own devilish behavior because it is expected and demanded that everyone else to just accept it as your right to be hellish and there must be a good reason for it. How dare anyone that is not White challenge or question you. And You in particular, Laquinta, should realize that with a name like Laquinta that happens to be of Spanish and Portuguese origin, if you were in AZ no matter how light your skin, you would be considered for target practice by the local police here who seem to assume everyone with a Latin sounding name is automatically Mexican and thus, you must be illegal also.

      • Oculos_Prime

        Hey Fit, I looked at a few of your links, and Im glad you posted. I am white-skinned and would like you to hear from a white guy. I hear you. There are many people who utilize any available information to fuel hate, justify racism, attempt to insult the intelligence of others, or goad people with false and demeaning commentary. The people that do, show you through their chosen words who the real subhuman are. And it has nothing to do with race. Its an attitude that ultimately is influenced through fear, but on the surface its all the same. Anyone who generalizes or dehumanizes or demonizes one group while excusing the exact behavior in a group they support. It is a willful, sad ignorance that only they can cure. I hope I can encourage you to possibly use terms that don’t group all white people together. There are some that share my color that I feel come from another planet, that seemingly have no empathy, no tact, no visible outward positive attributes to share. Those of us who feel they can establish bonds without judging a cosmetic feature like skin, need to work together, and let the real animals show their teeth and lick themselves.

        • fit2go

          I hear you as well Oculos. Thank you. I do not lump ALL of any ethnic group together as being guilty of being ALL bad, nor do I credit any ethnic group for being ALL good. As I said in my post, the looting and rioting can be found in any ethnic population and the evil, vile words used to describe those participants can also be said of ANY ethnic group.
          It is not particularly necessary for any group to point out any good that White people are capable of since for the most part, White people have taken it upon themselves to demand that the entire world population not only recognize their good deeds, but also their assumed supremacy. A mostly white owned media has taken extra care to point out and highlight the atrocities and even the minor crimes committed by people of color, but fail to shine the same light on crimes committed by Whites. There are whole communities of people of color (Blacks, Latinos, Natives, etc.) that will never make the local news or national news for the great contributions they have made in the past, and are making to society.
          History books written by White men have hidden and erased many facts. Some try to destroy artifacts that prove these contributions in the past as well as the present. Things like blood transfusion, the traffic light etc. are just 2 small things that have saved millions of lives. Modern as well as ancient medicine is taken from Natives, Africans and Asians. There are many Black, Native, Asians and other people of color who are ecologist, scientists, engineers, doctors, teachers, etc., that have made and are making enormous contributions that are saving and changing lives daily. This is not newsworthy though because it will disrupt the status quo.
          You say it has nothing to do with race, but it does. You can tell yourself that it does not because you have the luxury of looking the other way, speaking up, or remaining silent. You, Oculos, mean well and I don’t believe you are hateful or want to turn a blind eye.
          Here is an excerpt from a recent newspaper article: Kathy Miller who recently quit as a volunteer for Donald Trumps campaign: Volunteer Kathy Miller, who is white, told The Guardian newspaper in an article and video posted earlier in the day that she didn’t believe there was “any racism until (President Barack) Obama got elected.”
          Miller also described the Black Lives Matter movement as “a stupid waste of time,” attributed low voter turnout among African-Americans to “the way they’re raised,” and said blacks who haven’t succeeded over the past 50 years have only themselves to blame.
          “You’ve had the same schools everybody else went to. You had benefits to go to college that white kids didn’t have. You had all the advantages and didn’t take advantage of it,” she said. “It’s not our fault, certainly.”
          This woman labeled ALL African-Americans as fitting her thought process. When I and many other people of color like myself do not remotely fit her descriptions. Did Ms. Miller speak to ALL Black Americans before coming to her conclusions? And by the way, only 50 years? That says a lot in and of itself.
          The only thing Blacks are going to be credited with is any and every negative behavior and stereotype. No matter what we have done to assimilate, prove ourselves good members of society and worthy to just live like everyone else, we will never be enough or good enough. A Black Doctor is still nothing more than just another thug when he’s not wearing his white coat and stethoscope while walking down his own street in his well-to-do neighborhood. Same doctor in a hoodie and cornrows on his day off from work? Call the cops because their is a suspicious looking negro looking to break into homes. This actually happened to a well-known Black Harvard Professor named Henry Louis Gates in 2009.
          Whites on the other hand will always be portrayed as intelligent, saviors who have had to ride in and save the rest of us from our own destruction…even if it kills us.
          By imposing their own values, laws and belief systems on everyone else, Whites have deemed
          their culture as the only acceptable culture. There is an established system non-Whites
          assimilate into in order to merely survive, but are never going to be allowed to truly thrive less they get the idea that they are truly equal and buck against the establishment. It’s all done in the name of Good. “We are creating wealth and better ways of life for those people”-we know what’s best for everyone don’t we?

      Myste, for not being a sheep, you sure want to point out everyone else is. The first problem with this posting is its title. “Proof” he was armed. If this photograph and the video recovered and reviewed by police, was unequivocal proof to ensure the legality of their actions, they would have released not only an official statement, but their own findings to support that. They have not. This page is propaganda. A photograph of a gun on the ground is not proof it was in his hands and was pointed at police. Any of you who think you see a “clear” visual in the video feed? Email it to their station. An official report is necessary on the police’s behalf to show their confidence that they acted in accordance of the law. Myste, claiming that because people lie and have lied in the past. Only proof that truth for both parties. Guilty cops have lied and have planted evidence. Guilty criminals, have claimed this too. You haven’t broken the code, you’re chewing cud with this statement and solved no problems and provided no new insight. Try harder next time please, instead of claiming independent thought and then stating the same rhetoric that guilty police and angry supporters blatantly use to justify treating every new incident an excuse to use unnecessary force. It does a disservice to the good police officers, that use the law to support their communities.

      • Myste Laquinta

        Ah yes, because I heavily disagree with you, I’m obviously just a regurgitating sheep. Heard that one before.

        The video released by the police shows Keith get out of his vehicle holding the gun. Is that proof enough for you? There was nothing excessive about this use of force. A man with a gun was not cooperating with police, had the damn thing in his hand, and was taken down before he shot someone else. Later details released include the family spreading intentional lies for the purpose of creating this false narrative that the police are racists (despite it being a black officer who did the shooting), the revelation that he was a convicted felon and was therefore not permitted to possess the gun in the first place, and reveals that he was in possession of illegal drugs which is probable cause to assume he was also under the influence of them.

        You completely missed the point of my post, largely because you’re too focused on criticizing my opinions. You completely disregard facts of this case because you’re too focused on proving the cops are the bad guys. The only one doing a disservice to good police officers is people like you who go around crusading to discredit them when they have to make a tough call.

        I can say one thing for sure. If cops really did just like shooting black people, the man’s niece and nephew would have a multitude of bullets in their skulls given the amount of unfounded abuse they spewed for hours after the event took place.

        But they’re just innocent BLM supporters, right? Give me a break.

        • Oculos_Prime

          Actually Myste, I am someone who absolutely does their best to remain objective and instead of assuming truths before they are proven, I.e. this bluelivesmatter post using a photograph to claim “undeniable proof” when the police department itself hadn’t released its official statement. I believe in justice regardless of race. I become defensive though, of people (not insinuating this is you)who solely use posts like this to further the idea that a cop is innocent until proven guilty and a black man with a record is guilty before proven innocent. The reason I oppose this is because humans are simply that, and if we begin to assume truths that become popular believe, people on either side begin to see opportunity. Easily swayed cops begin to see their superiority and ability to get away with excessive force and murder thus becoming criminals with a badge to kill, and true thugs of color use the public’s automatic assumption of guilt to justify extreme crimes, because, what does it matter anyway? Innocent? Dead. Guilty? Dead. There’s no incentive to be a good productive citizen when the ones that are die for no reason.
          These type of idiotic posts are used to pull in people give them a charged topic and then release it upon the public to tear each other to shreds. So, your comment, which was posted before the police video, assumed quite a lot before information other than his wife’s video was released. I urge you to remain objective, and to not group people together as only having one voice. Because there are many people on BOTH sides of the issue who do this. Not to get to truth, but to cement ideals without logic to back them that can be racially, sexually, politically, and morally skewed into their minds, utilized the sheep mentality to not use their brains, but the force of a mob. That’s real Sheep Syndrome right there.

        • Oculos_Prime

          Also, part of sheep mentality is to generalize and use probability as definitive proof. Also, #blacklivesmatter contains people of both peaceful and hateful mindsets. One generalization to avoid is to group everyone into a mob, when that is not truthful. Same goes for cops. There are some who would do anything to protect any citizen, and there are some who are opportunistic and are essentially wolves in sheep’s clothing. This is one reason other than paid leave on the dime of the dead men’s families. Some cops who kill then create Gofundme pages raising hundreds of thousands as a result of true murder. We now have the possibility of racially motivated paid hitmen if this isn’t dealt with and stopped quickly.

          Myste. The amount of judgment you post of others versus your defense of yourself if really skewed. You state that a simple disagreement is the reason someone labels you a sheep.
          Then post 4 labels/judgments back. What about this shows a forward thinking, original, and independent non sheep mentality when you use the exact same techniques you claim aren’t appropriate for a disagreement Going back to the original post that started this wave:
          There are 8 opinions you state, each one of them creating a picture that there is no hope for these people, they’re rabies animals, everything stated by police is automatically disputed and ignored. Yes, they are opinions, but there is nothing I can find myself, that shows any room in that thought for anything but a running narrative that suggests: Cops victimized, thugs lie. Yes thats one post , but of course its going to spark controversy because that opinion doesn’t reflect a personality that suggests free thought. You can see the same mantra posted anytime stone wants to block information. On either side. So, if you feel you talk logially, possibly change your language to show an openness for dispute. Also, if your logic suggests that insults to you for your opinion show a person’s ineptitude, maybe making assumptions about their age, mental capacity, and thoughts aren’t the best way to show your originality? It literally uses the same weapon you state to be inappropriate to attempt to put them in their place, and primarily encourages communication based in labels, judgments, generalizations, and …????

    • chablinos

      Since there is a video that is a continuous recording begun prior to shots fired and that has multiple shots of the victim from the same angle as the photo provided here, but with a much wider field of view, and there is NO GUN ON THE GROUND in that video, I suppose you are actually the fact-free jack-ass who will begin making up explanations of how the gun is mysteriously invisible in the video but was really there somehow all along. Cops lie for each other to the bitter end. I’ll bet you were sure Justin Volpe was innocent too, no? What about Michael Slager? If that video hadn’t come out, would any of the other responding officers have said he was wrong? No, they wouldn’t. If officers are so righteous and innocent, they should be clamouring the loudest for more bodycams and for videos to be made public, because it will always exonerate them, right????

    The Hindus brought zero with their system of numbers
    Replacing the Romans’ which did naught but encumber

    The Arabs, their hygiene, pharmacy and guitars
    Without whom the world would not have soap bars,

    From Europe, of course, computers and cars
    Democracy, freedom, and power in war

    But what good has come from the Earth’s jungly center?
    Has it produced even one real inventor?

    The consumption of feces, the sponging of tax
    The stretching of lips that could only please blacks

    One could search for months with all of their vigor,
    But not one bit of good has come from a worthless ||****r!

      Yep, only 4 comments deep and we’ve got ourselves a tried and true racist. Not shocked, this is a pro-police site.

      • Mattcampbell62

        Productive people don’t have a lot of time to “riot” on the internet either, so don’t let the low comment count fool you into thinking that aren’t millions who agree. Racism?what the heck are you even talking about?

      • John J Rouse

        What did i say that wasn’t true, nigga?

        • Concerned Citizen

          Oh, John. I’m a well educated Half Asian, Half Jew, so go ahead and get your hood on, but make sure you use the proper bigotted slurs when referring to me. I’m in no way anti-police, but I can’t pretend to be surprised that a pro-police site is a haven for people like you. You are vile and have no place in our country.

          • John J Rouse

            Only ones who hate Jews are people who associate with Obama. This isn’t your country, it’s MY country. Btw, Japan and China is waaaay more racist. Where is the diversity? Go fuck yourself

          • Concerned Citizen

            Poor guy, before you know it you will be the minority in OUR country and I don’t think your mental state will be able to tolerate it. Literally. So get used to the proud, intelligent, EDUCATED, multi race families that comprise this beautiful country of ours. Their empathy will be all that saves you from your own hatred. Peace, brother.

          • John J Rouse

            Even if that happens which it never will, we will still be on top. Just like we were in South Africa even tho we were less than 10% of the population. Did it hurt when we nuked Japan? That’s what happens when inbreds start wars with us.

          • John J Rouse

            Funny how “educated” people today can’t get jobs ain’t it, so they stay in college for free as their little safe space from real society. I’m 43, Ching Ching, I been through life and almost retired with a networth over 2 million. How hurry up and bring me that order of egg rolls.

          • Concerned Citizen

            Mmm, egg rolls are fuckin delicious, right? I’m sure we can find our common ground there. But, everything else you predict of me isn’t even close to truth. Instead of embarrass you with the reality of my rich, full, well balanced life, I’ll let you slink back to the hole you crawled out of so you can get a head start on your (super premature) retirement. Sounds like you’ve got some pennies to count anyways. I’ve got a happy husband and a confident daughter to soak up before I get back to my career tomorrow. Night night. Kisses from a Liberal American, your worst nightmare. Xo

          • John J Rouse

            No, I’m sure you do fine. You’re Asian after all and part of the human race. Unlike the sub human homo Erectus blacks.

          • Concerned Citizen

            Man, I hope you’re pretty on the outside bc you’re seriously fucked on the inside. What’s going on there? In all seriousness, you sound super angry at black people. I bet it really gets in the way of you enjoying your life. That sucks, John. And it makes me sad. Some advice- don’t breath hate all day long, it’s bad for the soul. Even though I think you’re a crap person, you still deserve happiness. Maybe the next time you order an egg roll, you’ll smile. : )

          • John J Rouse

            I told you I don’t care enough about them to hate them, their problems aren’t my problems. I, like so many, are sick of their bad behavior and

          • NJ Conservative

            No surprise that a Jew is supporting rioting murderous blacks in Charlotte

          • Concerned Citizen

            Also no surprise that a Conservative is an Anti-Semite. And that you don’t read well. I never mentioned supporting rioters, bc I’m a decent person who wouldn’t condone that sort of thing. What I did comment on was the disgusting language of John J Rouse above and how it has no place in our society.

          • NJ Conservative

            I am not anti-semitic, I am anti-liberal. Conservative Jews I have no problem with. It is liberal Jews like you that make me sick.

      • John J Rouse

        You should be sick of yourself. It’s you that’s what’s wrong with the world. We aren’t the ones rioting, looting, assaulting people and damaging property because a black cop justifiably killed a black thug.

      she is not grieving. she didn’t sound one bit upset over the fact that her daddy was actually dead – not one fucking bit- oh wait..that’s right – because her daddy wasn’t around most of her life anyways – busy gang banging; and the last 9 years he was in prison.

    I believe that the media people and the stations should be sued for damages to the town and private property, they should be charged with each felony committed, each murder, each stolen item, etc. The majority (NOT ALL) of these incidents have been portrayed this way and later proven false! It’s time to hold the instigators responsible!!!

      • Roland Melnick

        The press is not immune from civil lawsuit. They are not free to spread libelous information and incite riots. If they knowingly or recklessly publish/broadcast false information, they should absolutely get their pants sued off. Now, James Daniels, go re-read the Constitution and Bill of Rights and look up “libelous” in a dictionary.

        • Dartsblaster2011

          Not free to spread libelous information and incite riots? ROFLGTICC, then Trump is open to a few thousand more lawsuits than he is already prey to. To show libel on the part of the media, you have to show malicious intent and that it was done with MALICE. Look up what TRUMP has said and then look up slander. You might learn something.

    • Dartsblaster2011

      What ones have been PROVEN FALSE? Do you mean perhaps not guilty proves a charged party INNOCENT? News Flash: If that were so, you must believe Orenthal James Simpson was innocent too as he was acquitted. Not Guilty merely means the charging party did not prove its case beyond and to the exclusion of every reasonable doubt to a jury or judge it does NOT establish innocence.

      • Janna Weiss

        But we all know he did and just got away with it. But when your arrogant, think that the world revolves around you, abuse your wife, and have a washed up career in football, that makes him a saint? And even so he still continued his criminal ways because he is now locked up for trying to steal back memorabilia (what he says was his property) from a several people at a casino, and that he threatened them with a gun. Yeah, real life hero here not!

  • Kevin Baker

    Perfect example for all to see. Criminals hiding behind a false narrative. Its a farce, for criminals to commit violence, to steal and destruction. Nt even actual facts can account for these criminal acts, but we know what the facts are and we know that the crimnal thugs dont care what the facts are. It doesnt matter to them, period. Just need an excuse to rob, beat people, and to destroy property and lively hoods with a lot better chancd of not getting caught. A crime is a crime. Time to put law and order back in the streets. They have no credibility now, they lost it all and now its time to pay for the crimes. Justice has blinders on, race doesnt mattter, only justice for all matters.

    • Smoove

      Do you think these criminal acts u say just happened?…Or do you think that black people fed up of getting slaughtered by trigger happy cops?…So you have a few that cant contain the frustration?…Had this not happen do you think there would havr been a riot??. Stop the killings and problems can get solved. Is you have a dog and keep him in a cage , poje at him but want him to obey. What you think gone happen one day?

      • Lynda

        And what do you think is going to happen if Black thugs keep attacking Whites who are not guilty of anything except walking through a parking garage to go to their car, or just walking down a street, or trying to drive home from work or get to a hospital? Some Blacks have set fire to White children. Quit acting like all Blacks are victims. They aren’t.

  • Tommy Lee

    Dear Diary,
    Guess what I found out today….I’m an animal! Not a veteran, not an American, no not even black! I’m an animal, the same as a dog or a fish. How did I find this out you may ask. Well it all started when a black guy was shot…again (its been going on a lot lately). So while I was doing research to figure out what really happened I stumbled onto a page called bluelivesmatter.com because they said they had facts that I might not know, and like a conscientious observer of life I understand that everything has two sides. So peruse this article. and then I read the comments section. And there I found not only my origin…but I dare say my destiny. This will be great..I’m going to be the smartest animal ever. My dog can’t do shit.

    • Alex

      You were rioting? Burning down businesses, lootin, and trying to burn a reporter alive? Then yeah, you’re a fucking animal, and you deserve to rot in jail for a long, long time. Go turn yourself in before the cops catch up with you; it’ll look better when you’re in court.

    • Amy Barnes

      Tommy Lee,

      I am very sorry that some people take this opportunity to classify ALL people of any given race or cultural origin as “animals” or some other derogatory term. Please believe me when I say not everyone is so shallow.

      I provide service and education to a customer base that is largely black or Hispanic, and while I am a smallish (five foot) white woman, I consider these men my family and would do anything I could for them – and not once have I ever thought any less of any of them due to something as simple as the skin they’re in. And I do believe the majority of people in this country adopt a peaceful attitude toward other races or religions.

      It’s when violence erupts or decorum is thrown out in place of rage that the worst comes out on BOTH sides. Calling the cops “ugly” and “coons” is no better than calling the daughter a “ghetto hoe” – but whereas the police stood firm and let projectiles, insults, and spit land on their faces rather than fighting back, the mob continued to taunt and destroy and generally make a mockery of society as we know it. And the news- and media-watching public is drawing conclusions, maybe not always accurate ones, based on that behavior.

      Tragedy will ALWAYS happen. But it’s how we respond to tragedy that makes a memorable impression. And frankly some segments of society use it as an excuse to misbehave. Anger, even justifiable rage, is NO excuse for anarchy.

      I wish everyone would put down the rocks, the shields, and the weapons, and have a cold beer and figure it out. Heck, I’ll even bring sponge cake.

      • Lynda

        And please tell me why the Black thug rioters were attacking Whites who had nothing to do with the shooting? Could it be that they are filled with racism and hate? Or are you going to make excuses for them too?

  • KarloLil’Husky Los Playmaker B

    They planted that gun.. So they got the dash cam video and won’t release it but all the videos cops ever had been released.. I’ll believe the cops story when I see the video.. OJ was found not guilty for cops planting evidence.. If the cops had a solid video of that man charging them with a gun they would show that video in a heartbeat to save their ass

    • Hank Campbell

      First “they planted the gun” but….if somehow you see a video showing otherwise, you’ll believe he had one. What kind of BS are you selling here? You don’t have any idea but you’ll blindly wager that he was unarmed. This is typical of you cop haters. Why not wait until the evidence is out instead of rushing to judgement?

      And OJ wasn’t framed. It was poor strategy by the prosecution to use a blood stained leather glove that had dried in the “if the glove don’t fit, you must acquit” portion of the trial that cemented th case for the defense. You do realize the he was sued in civil court and ordered to pay $33.5 million to the families of Brown and Goldman…..right?

    • OzCop

      …and I suppose the ankle holster on his leg was where he stored that reported book he was reading…

    • Lynda

      And I suppose the police planted a gun for every incident on his rap sheet. I’m sure even placing the gun in his hand. Do Liberals ever take responsibility for anything they do wrong? I’m beginning to realize the answer to that is “no”.

  • ex-DWP anonymous

    These protesters have no life, no hope, no future, just generation after generation of welfare and food stamp recipients. And they were lied to and cheated by a man they fully believed in with whole heart and soul, their very first black president Barack Obama who was supposed to be on their side. Obama is directly responsible for wasting black America, he made poor communities poorer and killed any speck of light at the end of the tunnel for these people. Probably all they wanted in life was a fair shake and a good job. The shooting was a reaction by an officer who saw a defiant man waving a gun around in his hand. The officer’s intention was to prevent any further tragedy from occurring. Unfortunately these events sometimes occur. But………. when riot atmosphere becomes inflamed, the National Guard should have immediately been mobilized and hundreds of arrests should have been made right from the get-go. Not that that means anything to these people, their lives are a waste anyway, but it does mean other people’s private property could have been preserved from destruction and looting.

    • IceTrey

      “The shooting was a reaction by an officer who saw a defiant man waving a gun around in his hand.”

      Most Whites are smart enough to put the gun down when ordered to by a police officer.

      • Vargus

        You do not teach respect. Respect is earned. You teach fear. Funny hw you say whites do not go around blaming everyone else when they get in trouble. That has not been my experience. I see white people blaming other people for their problems all of the time. They blame immigrants when they cant find jobs. Conservative whites blame liberal whites, liberal whites blame conservative whites. White parents blame their childrens bad behavior on television and rock music. The blame list is endless.

  • glorkohl

    The daughter sure is morning her father respectably… by “their” standards. Interesting how some folks own actions confirm them to be the lowest of low, but when others call them out on their behavior , it’s an “attack.” Remember at the election 8 years ago when people predicted that there would be a price to pay ? No one wanted to speculate as to what form the payment would be made, but someone didn’t let that get in his way of having his big success, whether it was best for the country or not ( very obviously not ) Nothing he can do about the price that is being paid but stand by and watch.. Oh well, live by the sword, die by the sword.

    The chief just said he could not see Scott pointing a gun at the cops in the video.

  • DinduNuffin

    I don’t know all the facts so I can’t say if the police were justified in using lethal force but the fact is that most of these black saints that were “good boys”, were “turning their lives around”, and “dindunuffin” had a history of crime, often violent. What other race or ethnic group gets this upset when a criminal with their skin color gets killed? I guess it’s easier to rage against everyone else instead of placing the blame where it belongs because it makes you feel ashamed and inferior.
    White people are sick of being called racists. White people don’t wake up in the morning thinking “what’s another way to personally benefit by taking advantage of black people”. Just like cops aren’t walking around, randomly shooting blacks for no reason. Nobody with an IQ above 70 believes BLM. If black lives really mattered they would deal with the murder and crimes in their communities instead of rioting because another savage got a visit from karma. 13% of the population committing 50% of the crimes has more to do with a counter productive culture than anything else.

    • whataworld

      Even if they were justified to use force, why lethal? Shouldn’t law enforcement be trained to disarm someone with out killing them? Shoot him in the arm if he’s grabbing for a gun. Not his heart.

    • whataworld

      And this “Nobody with an IQ above 70 believes BLM.” I hope is a heat of the moment statement because I have never heard anything more racist and inhuman in my life. You may want to clarify or be more specific. By BLM are you referring to the violence that has stemmed from the movement? The movement itself? Or the message behind the phrase? Because if you not only do not believe that black lives matter but believe that no intelligent human believes that black lives matter I don’t think you are capable of having a rational conversation with anyone and I think you should keep your thoughts on the matter to yourself.

      • DinduNuffin

        How is what I wrote racist, snowflake?

        I meant what I wrote. I see you struggle with reading comprehension so I’ll explain it to you sesame street style. If black lives mattered, they would be protesting the high murder rates in and violence in their communities. But they don’t, so anyone with some intelligence would see that their actions mean b l don’t m.
        Don’t forget that many if not most of these big cities that have a high murder rate are run by democrats and have black leadership (mayors, police chiefs, etc.).

  • Red Sea

    Ridiculous… picture of gun next to his dying soul? These idiots think they can use 9 year old tactics to cover another murder.. Charlotte is about to experience seriously turmoil but Cops decide to leak their non existent evidence through media.. What was Mr. Scott doing with with gun that never existed? Oh yeah was pointing to the cops while he could of defended himself.. They tell him to drop gun but evidence is inconclusive? Serveral attempts by cops to drop gun and no video.. Oh yeah (NC is protecting integrity of the case) .. Integrity shouldn’t be used by these cops, they broke it.. Local news will give us evidence.. Charlotte media, lol,, you showed gun next to his body? Can you show us gun Mr. Scott kept treating police with repeatedly? Shame on you. If they show proof Mr. Scott threatened cops then they have every right to take him out, accusing him of gun then saying obvious “Inconclusive ” cops murdered another human being.. Unacceptable

    • NJ Conservative

      Mr. Scott has a rap sheet of many crimes involving guns. So all of a sudden it’s inconceivable to think he actually had a gun. How stupid are you.

    Blue lives do matter, not an ounce more than anyone else’s life.. We see once sided death toll mounting.. Why would Mr. Scott have gun to hold it, refuse to drop this nonexistent gun then never use it? Keep waiting till someone that can shoot him? In the end, integrity of the case as blasphemy continues, inside court NO GUN Will be produced other then the one they placed next to him.. Inconclusive? Of course.. It’s basic scheme been used once again.. Show the video.. Police said he had gun, you owe it to his family..

  • Smoove

    Talking about he had a gun when he exited the car . Tell that to a dummy.

          Are you for real? A sane comment says anyone can incite (cause) a riot by declaring outright, definitive, undeniable lies+libel whenever they want to? Because… they can’t. That *IS!* illegal, and the first amendment most certainly does *NOT!* apply.

          Allow me to rephrase that: What this family is guilty of would be much the same as me saying, “Hey, that Internet dude/Family Guy fan…? It is a fact that he’s got some WMDs in his domicile. Come on, everybody, let’s go and murder him or else they will be used and innocents shall die!”

          One can’t say, “Hey, yo, I know I be sleepy-time in daytime, but I knows my MF’in Daddy! done be reading some mad books while he be feeding the homeless in his vroom-vroom, then them white coon devil crackers done teleported in naked like boom, and my MF’in Daddy!! done be done in by them cracker @ss white Satans. My MF’in Daddy!!!, he done never be even knowing what a gun is before them cracker bitch crackers done teleported in and shot him the F up. That dark shine-shine object? Ain’t you never seen no book before, honky-tonky crackers? Kill whitey! Hey, where yo be runnin off to, red shirt wearing cracker? My MF’in Daddy!!1!one!!, kill all them whitey crackers!” (Oh, did I leave out the part about crackers only fornicating with family, and then dogs – but dogs weren’t good enough, so suddenly we all only lay with literal horses. Class-A, clearly pained and grief stricken outburst this all was, no?)

          Because that, in essence, is a condensed version of this racist incompetents hatespeech which was broadcast around the world and specifically caused all this violence and destruction. Arrests for firearms does not equal never having owned/used a gun before. And now, yet another (far more innocent, most likely) young man named Justin Carr lies dead – because this lazy racist lied.

          Tulsa remains at peace, by and large, despite there finding a truly egregious and outright murderous action of an entirely innocent man by law enforcement for the heinous crime of his car breaking down. The difference is, his family didn’t run around inciting madness with the most hateful and racist diatribe I’ve encountered recently, viciously lying and changing the facts 180° whilst ensuring every word was dripping with divisive and hateful rhetoric to dredge up every prejudice possible.

          So, yeah… no. This family does not have any freedoms whatsoever to vehemently lie as much as possible, done knowing and likely hoping that violence, rioting and mayhem would ensue. That is not a freedom of any kind, but rather a prosecutable offense and morally unthinkable crime. Saying otherwise, rather than “the first sane post!!!”, is sheer and utterly deplorable insanity.

    Scott was convicted in April 2004 of a misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon charge in Mecklenburg County. One of many, google it before you make even a bigger fool of yourself.

  • JustSayin

    The victim has several violent criminal charges that involves guns. That’s a FACT! At the same time, if police were over zealous as it has happened in the past, (that’s a FACT)! Something has to change and it shouldn’t be a black/white thing. Numbers of people killed by police this year-white 277, black 123. That’s too many.
    No one can ever justify what happened with destruction of people’s property, violence, looting and anyone who does that is a animal and should be caged up.

  • Skitz00

    People who have confrontations with the police often make the serious mistake of not complying with them. They often use the excuse that the police were wrong to be “hassling’ them. Here is a hot news flash to these people: whether the police are right or wrong to be hassling you, YOU are in the wrong when you refuse to obey them when they tell you what to do. Two wrongs do not make a “right”.

    When being confronted by police, follow their instructions. Do not hold a weapon in your hands and do not resist in any way. Simple. And here is the good part: If the police are wrongfully hassling you and you comply, you will not be harmed AND you just hit the lottery. You can sue the police for wrongfully hassling you if that is what happened. What part of that is so hard to understand?

  • Dartsblaster2011

    It may well have been a plant. I want to see continuous video of that location from the time the gentleman was killed until the time the gun was PICKED UP. Not from it miraculously appearing at a crime scene. Check all the officers that were there and insure their throw down weaponry is accounted for also. I seem to remember a murder in another southern state where the cop shooter stated his victim got his taser away from him but video later showed that the officer HIMSELF planted it near his victims body.

  • Jim Stone

    Sources say he shot at the police in Texas

  • David Benton

    Most people just don’t get it and it is so sad. I want to make this as clear as I can possibly be so here goes…”Police Officers Aren’t Out To Get Anyone But Criminals!” Police officers would rather to never have to even be in a situation to have to draw their weapon. Think just for 2 seconds about what I said, give it 2 seconds to sink in real good here. If a police officer is in a situation to draw his weapon, it is already a dire situation which is dangerous to either themselves or civilians. Most people including police officers hate situations like this, but their training and job put them in between those that would harm others and those that would be harmed everyday. That’s the job! They did not sign up to be shot at, spit at, cussed at, but they deal with it because unfortunately lately that too has become part of the job. To all of those people that say “what about the bad cops?” or “what about the corrupt cops?” I say this “what about the bad people or corrupt people in society?” Anyone can be painted with a broad brush, teachers, doctors, lawyers, even everyday citizens, and it isn’t right to judge all based on a few. In fact that is what Black Lives Matter is supposed to be standing for, but you see for them it is a double standard, everyone but police officers matter to them. If you support this movement that is your right to do so, but you should know that ALL LIVES MATTER, and singling out one life for the other doesn’t make you an activist, it makes you a hypocrite.

You can clearly see in the video that there is NO gun on the ground near his feet. And the black cop standing above the body is further contaminating the scene by dropping things.

        Look at the video toward the end. There appears to be a shadowy shape of a gun to the right of his feet. Since the video was shot from a distance it’s hard to pick up. Hopefully investigators will be able to enhance the images and determine the facts. Why would his wife yell over and over again to her husband “Don’t do it” unless she was concerned that he was going to use the gun officers all saw and told him repeatedly to drop. I am in no way connected to this case and am simply observing details as they’ve been shared thus far. Sympathies to everyone involved and prayers for our entire country.

    These BLM lDIOTS do not live in reality. They live in a fantasy world, strung along by their puppet masters in the “social justice” movement (akin to a bowel movement) that EVERYTHING in their lives that is wrong, is because of the police, white people, bankers and “the rich”. I’m telling you, when LBJ signed the welfare thingys back in the 60’s, one thing he did get 100% correct, is that “I’ll have those N****S voting democrat for the next 200 years”.
    They just can’t get their minds around the fact, the liberal party has suckered them since 1964. They continue to vote for them year after year, and NOTHING changes. They got off the plantation after the civil war, but in the 1960’s they were put BACK on the plantation of section 8 housing and given just barely enough money to get by on. Then, even those in the black politician set, don’t give a CRAP about them…but they know they can 99.9% count on their vote.

  • Debbie

    When you watch the video shot by his wife there is clearly nothing on the ground by his feet. Something that looks like it might be a gun, only appears at minute 1:43, and it was probably a black glove. It was not there prior to minute 1:43. Just watch the video. This one still shot is very misleading especially since the video clearly shows it was not there right after he was shot.

  • nateynuclear

    So video is circulating showing a cop drop this “object” next to Keith. So it begs the question is this really prove Keith was the one who had the gun? Now they are backtracking and trying to say this “object” is a glove.

    that photo looks very different than the video taken by the guys wife. the object that is said to look like a gun is as vague as an image of a sphinx on a distant planet. looks like nothing, or everything. you don’t see that object in the video at all, not to mention the rest of the image is blurred, further adds to the unbelievable nature of the image.

  • David M

    The problem with this so called proof is that the video his wife made during the time the cops were yelling at Mr Scott and after the cops shot Mr Scott show’s no gun in it. She was at the perfect angle to dispute the idea that a gun landed at his feet after he was shot. As she was videoing her husband dead on the ground you can see his legs and to right of him there is NO gun. I’m not one of those idiots who would go rioting and I definitely do not support that terrorist group who calls themselves black lives matter. But I absolutely do not see a gun at his feet minutes after the cops shot him. So this begs the question, was the gun placed there by one of the cops to try and justify the shooting? Here’s the link to the video. http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/23/us/charlotte-keith-lamont-scott-shooting-wife-video/index.html

  • 1sittingduck1

  • William R. Mosby

    It’s an open carry state, and the mere presence of a gun does not give police there any right to detain a person carrying one or ask his/her intentions. That is well established in court cases there. So unless Scott was behaving in a threatening manner when first observed (and no official has said he was), the whole interaction of the police with Scott was illegal.

    • SoSayethTheBored

      Convicted felons don’t get to enjoy open carry.

      • William R. Mosby

        And he had a sign on him that said “Keith Scott, Convicted Felon”? Or did they have time to call in his license before shooting him?

        • ThomofWI

          • William R. Mosby

            I took it to mean “don’t stay in the car”, because she also said “don’t make them break the window” or something that sounded like that.

        • GCF

          Or and this is more likely, the cop knew him as a convicted felon. Probably his patrol area so he would know the area and people in said area

    People who decide any guilt or innocence by evidence found on the Internet will always did it in their favor. Wait until the evidence and investigation is done. The officer in Tulsa was charged. You cannot just charge at the scene without GOOD evidence. The wife’s video does NOT help her case though. IMHO.

  • Ford Prefect

    OK, now I’m the first to say that BLM is primarily founded on a fallacy, but I have just seen the officers drop the gun. It happens at 1:45. You need to get it in slow motion and zoom in to really appreciate it, but no matter what, you will notice that up until 1:44 – no gun. Then there’s a gun there all of a sudden.

    WOW, Is there something in the water in Charlotte that makes people lose the function of their grey matter?

    The video is not very clear, nothing conclusive can be drawn about a gun , the wife is acting and speaking VERY strangely: “He better not be dead” (after having just seen her husband shot !?). She doesn’t react normally. She states: “Don’t do it!” Gee, I wonder what she is referring to. Her husband has a gun and is brandishing it. Oh, that’s right, UNLESS all of the officers are involved in a conspiracy to kill this one all so important person and are willing to face charges for killing him mercilessly.

    People: Get a clue or go back to school!

  • Search for Truth not Narrative

    There are bad cops out there. That being said the video only offers hints. If you watch the officer in red immediately after the video taker runs back after shots fired in slow and pause you can see him slide something with his foot away from the scene… only his foot can be seen just past the police SUV sliding something. This item can be seen as the video taker returns to the scene. The same officer in red then proceeds to stand in place where the item was and you can just make out something between his feet just protruding out past his left heel. Very hard to see and depending on the position of the video taker. It’s only visible between his feet when the video taker moves towards the right and back. Their is some trash, white in color, maybe just a little piece of paper right behind that item. If we now look at the still photo that is circulating with the police tape and what is purportedly the gun the same little piece of trash is there between the item that is said to be a gun and the curb, the same area where it was in the video. Take the time to look into it if you really care. Find a good quality video and use your pause button to slow it down in those areas. If you do this you will also see the items that were dropped by the officer were gloves. Anytime bodily fluids are involved it is policy to put on gloves. I know some will never believe this just like the Kennedy assassination. I also believe that all videos involved should be released. Just remember for the officers to plant a gun all 5 officers on scene were involved and no one feels guilty about doing it. Even the black officer had no problem pulling the trigger and planting the firearm. Yet none of the officers have come out and said that there was no gun. Police are not robots they have souls and to believe that 5 human beings without speaking to each other all agreed to plant a weapon with witnesses present is naive at best.

    THAT IS A BLACK LATEX GLOVE THAT FELL ON THE GROUND!! You can see it happen in the video his wife took. The cop in red reaches in his pocket and hands some gloves to the black officer. One of the gloves falls to the ground. But you can see the black officer putting the gloves on before touching the wounded victim. There were no items on the pavement before the handoff. #bluelivescansuckadick

  • Transfinite Cardinal

    Well it’s a well known fact that American Police Officers are so stupid that they don’t know the difference between a book and a gun and furthermore they always carry an extra gun just in case they shoot an unarmed black and they need to plant it.

    So people actually think the police show up somewhere, with a gun ready to plant. A black police officer plants a gun at the scene after screaming at a guy a half dozen times to put down a gun and then plants it at the scene. These folks are completely deluded and just downright stupid. Listen to that guys wife. She sounds ignorant as hell as she tells her husband to don’t do it! don’t do what what exactly? you mean pick up the gun you had in your hand and try and point it at armed police officers. And then a mob of angry primarily black people proceed to rip a city apart. No wonder you can’t get jobs and have disfunctional societies. You dont even know how to behave in a civilized manner.The cops were right This guy was an idiot and now he’s dead over it, with a rap sheet that was a mile long that involved previous incidents with guns. Thank you police for removing one more problem from our society. Keep up the good work.

    Why oh why is it that .. every single black wife, mama, daughter, etc always loudly exclaims .. “He’s innocent! He had NO gun! He sings in the choir! Everybody loves him! Not a bad bone in his body! Never looted any Walmarts! Never held up any 7-11! .. etc etc, ad infinitum. Then we ALWAYS find out in the end .. he was simply just another THUG.

    How did his body end up so far from his SUV? It appears as though he was shot within a second or 2 of opening the door. Nevermind all the windows are tinted and there was probably a lot of glare for the officers looking at him through the windshield. I dont think they would have been 100% able to recognize a gun in that situation. Just my 2 cents.

    That’s not a gun. It’s a glove. Black glove issued to officers to wear when dealing with perps who are bleeding. There’s video of the officer dropping the glove.

  • chablinos

    So I guess you are not going to bother revising this now that continuous, unbroken video footage from the shooting definitively shows NO GUN near the victim? It is plainly obvious that the gun in the photo was placed there by an officer, since it does not appear in the video. Facts can be inconvenient, huh?

  • DXT

    This crook could of had a rocket launcher pointed to the cops head. It wouldnt of matter to blacks, they ONLY want to cause hate, chaos and destruction. The truth does not mattwr to them. They dont care about stats, they dont care they r killing each other at a astronomical rate. Blacks do not think like whites, two different cultures and communities. Its just like dems/liberals wont say radical islam, they wont talk about the truth with the blacks. No sympathy for these people they r ignorant to facts.

    I’m sorry. I was totally on board with this. Saw the picture. But I just saw the two videos. What does that tactical officer with the vest throw on the ground next to the feet of the guy shot. Saw the slo mo video on news. I’m not going to guess but as a former prosecutor, the FBI and DOJ need to head to Charlotte now. Why did the police say video showed him holding a gun?

    • George Smith

      The police have NEVER said the video showed him holding a gun, although he was obviously holding something down low. Do you ever realize that this guy is a convicted felon who was imprisoned for shooting a man with an illegal gun, and who stabbed his wife, and who had a restraining order on him from that wife for threatening to shoot her with yet another illegal gun? Do you realize that all of this is public record and is out now? Wake up, this guy is no hero, he was a complete and utter lowlife scumbag criminal. Why you have such a hard time believing the obvious is beyond me.

    If the police are saying that this photo proves that Keith Scott had a gun, it is a lie. Check out the second video of this link which is from a cops body cam and you will see that after Scott is shot and is laying on the ground, there is no gun on the ground by his feet.

    We now KNOW that the “gun” in that photo was nothing more than the black latex glove dropped by the cop dressed in red, who did so ON CAMERA in the widow’s video.

    So what now?

    THROW DOWN WEAPON!!!! YOU WILL NOTE THE MURDERES DIDN’T ALLOW ANYONE NEAR THE SCENE!!! AND WHEN WAS THIS SO-CALLED PICTURE TAKEN!! WHEN HE GOT OUT OF T5HE CAR, i DIDN’T SEE ANY WEAPON IN EITHER HAND!!!
    ONE OTHER THING, YOU CRACKERS WILL NEVER ADMIT TO YOUR VILE, VENOMOUS, INSIDIOUS MENTALITY!! FUCK YOU!!!!

    • George Smith

      Cops don’t allow people to wander into shooting scenes, use your brain. The picture was taken from a different angle from the video, that’s very obvious, again, use your brain. You do realize that his DNA was on and INSIDE of the gun right? As in, from when he cleaned it? Do you people even bother to challenge your knee jerk reactions and nuttery or do you just embrace it?

    The preachings of an unlicensed rev. Yup no proof he’s a man of God who also pays no taxes, Al may even have an EBT card to boos. And bad parenting as well. Poor raising. Here’s a video proof. You break the law cops must prove to you that you broke the law. In this video a woman tells police they gonna have to murder someone and she supposedly suing the entire state so since she’s wrapped up in courts she supposedly got her car from impound and they let her drive without tags.?? Go figure plus had 9 warrants so police had no right to stop her apparently there no law on plates on car. This is a woman that watches too much internet. Nice weave yet 9 warrants for unpaid tickets. Btw I am white in a mostly white town all police are white. Been harassed for years but I complied and I am alive. Pls note officers knew I was driving without a license bc they knew me from priors. Tags good yea. Reg good yes insurance good yea. Licence bad and warrants yes. They had every right to stop me just like this woman. Then uses a baby as a shield an preaches to her 2 yr old “they gonna kill me make sure to get it on video. She preaches to a 2 yr old? That’s what’s wrong with society. I’m gonna say she drove into a neiborhood she didn’t belong in intentionally watch bet only white people watch then when your done this YouTube video click the 3min vid under it showing her on the ground and listen to the intelligent black man who hit the nail on the head.

      We aren’t going anywhere if she wins and you may want to check the polls as well as how many people are supporting Trump at this point. Reality check time.

    Doesn’t matter if he had a gun. He was sitting in his car, minding his own business when the Police rolled up on him. This is a violation of his constitutional rights. Also, he never pointed the gun at anyone, if he even had a gun. He never made a threatening move. His wife was right there, they could have asked her to get him out of the car but they just ignored her and what she was telling them. He was not the man they were looking for and they knew that.

    • George Smith

      NO. He was sitting in a car with an ILLEGAL GUN, as a prohibited possessor / convicted felon, and using drugs.

      That said, it’s not a “Violation of his rights” to walk up and question him.

      The wife? You mean the one he STABBED, and beat up and threatened to shoot with another illegal gun, a 9mm? The wife who called the eeeeevil police to protect her from him, and who got a restraining order which was still active? THAT WIFE?

    A common sense, impartial civilian’s view: first screaming, swearing no gun from mom/daughter team, then “planted” gun, then Charlotte was in turmoil for 4 nights, then police finally said something about the finger-prints on the gun that was sitting on the ground all along, the 2 police videos, the long rap sheet of the felon that got killed, the reason police were there in the first place, etc! You draw your own conclusions! I believe the Charlotte police were being too cautious so as to let the ones crying wolf had the upper hand and Charlotte residents had 4 nightmarish day/nights. Thank God this time the police shooter was A-Am so the issue of race was out of the pic. Sensible black leaders should come out and say something, they owe Americans for that! It reminds us of the Tawana case 1988, that left such scar on Americans’ psyche!!

  • George Smith

    Liberals amaze me. They are willing to believe that five cops all conspired to murder someone, shouted “drop the gun” 15 times just to create the illusion, planted a gun that has his DNA and fingerprints all over it, and which has his DNA INSIDE of the gun before…..

    …they believe that this lowlife convicted felon, who has shot people, done time in prison, has a record of threatening with illegal guns, who has stabbed his wife, beat his children, used drugs….simply had a gun and wouldn’t put it down.

    It’s so illogical, and you can’t make these people see reason.
