The North Carolina Governor has called out the National Guard and declared a sate of emergency in Charlotte as for a second night their were protests, riots and looting in response to the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. The National Guard is to assist the police in maintaining order which seems to have gotten completely out of control. Exactly how is looting, destroying property and harming others a manner of protesting an individual shot by a police officer? That is a riot, not a protest.

Protests turned violent for a second night in Charlotte after Tuesday’s fatal police shooting of a black man. Late Wednesday, Gov. Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency for the city and deployed the National Guard and State Highway Patrol troopers to assist local police.
One person was shot at the protest and was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, Medic said. The city initially reported that he died, but later retracted that, saying he was on life-support.
Medic said on Twitter that it was treating the patient for a gunshot wound en route to Carolinas Medical Center at about 8:45 p.m.
The person was shot in the area of North College and East Trade streets.
Medic said it was responding to “multiple incidents uptown related to the situation in the College Street area” but was no more specific.
The shooting was “civilian on civilian,” the city tweeted. “@CMPD did not fire shot.”
“The state has many additional assets nearby to assist,” McCrory said. “Any violence directed toward our citizens or police officers or destruction of property should not be tolerated.”
