Yet again, riots broke out in an American city following an officer-involved shooting. Forty-three-year-old Keith Lamont Scott, a black man, was shot on Tuesday in an apartment complex parking lot in Charlotte, NC, as police were there to serve an arrest warrant to another man.
There are two competing narratives, one put out by Scott’s family — that Scott was unarmed and reading a book in his car while he was shot. Police maintain Scott exited his vehicle with a firearm. According to Blue Lives Matter, a gun was recovered at the scene, and officers say a book wasn’t. Police Chief Kerr Putney of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg County Police Department said Scott was given “loud, clear, verbal commands, which were also heard by many of the witnesses,” to drop his weapon.
And what are liberals saying about the riots? Nothing but praise, of course. AG Loretta Lynch took the cake for the dumbest comment made so far.
As 100 Percent Fed Up Reported
We’ve said from the beginning that Loretta Lynch is just Eric Holder in a skirt. She proved that suspicion today…Why are they bringing in the National Guard if these protests have been peaceful?
She described the protesters as peaceful, stating “Now, most of the demonstrators gathered last night were exercising their constitutional and protected right to peaceful protest in order to raise issues and create change.”
Yeah, well she couldn’t be any more wrong.
One protester was shot in the head in the street, and later died! On the first night of rioting, a Walmart was looted, 12 officers were injured, and a CNN reported was attacked live on air.
It’s ironic that CNN had been giving them a watered down description of being “protesters” prior to being assaulted. These people aren’t protesters by a long shot, they’re violence thugs and rioters who are looking for any excuse to destroy their own communities.
