16 officers were injured responding to violent protests that blocked Interstate 85. Protesters looted from a tractor-trailer and set fire to some of its cargo. Dozens of protesters are breaking into the Walmart on North Tryon Street.Also, the officer who shot this guy was also black. Doesn't that rule out racism?
Chief Kerr Putney said that officers seized a handgun from the scene but did not seize a book.
UPDATE: You be the judge... gun or book?
On the Facebook stream the woman can be heard screaming... “they shot my daddy, he didn’t have no gun” and... “they just plantin shit, they shot my motherfuckin' daddy four times for being black”.There it is... this woman was obviously raised by a father with a great reverence for literature.
One officer walked by the woman filming and she states... “he probably rapes his motherfuckin' daughter” towards the officer.
UPDATE2: Burn baby burn
A man described as the brother of Keith Lamont Scott says, before angrily walking away from reporters: “I just know that all white people are fucking devils.” Then he adds, “All white cops are fucking devils, and white people.” The man did not stop with the devils comment; he is captured in other video interviews making unverified claims about the shooting.It's Ferguson all over again.
"11:30pm - North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency in Charlotte as protests over a police shooting turned violent for a second night. McCrory said in a statement late Wednesday he was also sending in the National Guard."
LAST WORD: POTUS should butt out
"Scott has a criminal record in three states, including Texas, South Carolina and North Carolina. Charlotte's police chief says 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott refused multiple warnings to drop a handgun before a black officer fatally shot the black man."Doesn't sound like much of a victim to me.
