“All white people are fucking devils.” That was the response of Keith Lamont Scott’s son following the death of his father in a hail of police bullets fired by a BLACK cop in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Which is odd given that Scott’s wife kept begging him not to do “it,” whatever “it” was. Police say that Scott had a gun and was an imminent threat.
WBTV reports that Scott’s fingerprints and DNA were found a gun that he had. The fambly says he had no gun.
It’s a classic case of a Dindu Nuffins vs police. So, who’re ya gonna believe?
Embedded at the bottom of this post are four video that might help you make up your mind.
Excerpt from NBC News
Unsettling footage obtained by NBC News shows the moments leading up to the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The video, taken by Scott’s wife, does not clearly show the exact moment he was shot by police on Tuesday. Scott is seen on the ground surrounded by police officers moments after the shots were fired.
“He better not be f—ing dead, he better not be f—ing dead,” Rakeyia Scott can be heard shouting at the officers. “He better live, he better live!” It is not clear what preceded the shooting.
The killing of Scott, 43, sparked three nights of fiery protests and violent clashes between protesters and law enforcement. Activists and the Scott family have pressed city officials to release bodycam or dashcam footage of the fatal encounter.
n the two-minute, 12-second footage provided by the Scott family’s attorney to NBC News, Rakeyia Scott can be heard saying, “Don’t shoot him, don’t shoot him” as police appear to converge on a white pick-up truck in the parking lot of a condominium complex. “He has no weapon — don’t shoot him!”
Rakeyia Scott can be heard urging her husband to comply with the officers who had instructed her husband to “drop the gun, drop the gun.”
“Keith, don’t let them break the windows! Come on out of the car,” she can be heard yelling, “Keith, don’t do it!”
“Keith, Keith, Keith — don’t you do it!”

It’s at that moment that four gunshots can be heard, as Scott’s wife screams: “Did you shoot him? Did you shoot him?”
In the aftermath, police officers can be seen attending to Scott’s prone body as his wife apparently calls 9-1-1.
The footage was obtained by NBC News amid conflicting reports about whether a gun was found at the scene of the shooting. Police say he had a handgun on him and posed “an imminent, deadly threat.” The family says he was not armed and did not pose a threat to the officers.
No gun is clearly visible in the video footage, which appears to have been recorded from a nearby patch of grass. A photo, previously obtained by NBC News from local affiliate WCNC, appears to show an object at the scene that police sources identified to the affiliate as a gun. It is not known how long after the shooting the photo was taken.
