SO MUCH FOR IT BEING A BOOK …
ABC News is reporting that police in Charlotte, NC have confirmed that video shows that Keith Lamont Scott had a gun in his hand during the altercation with police officers before he was fatally shot. Initially, the family stated that Scott was carrying a book. Hmm, so much for that false narrative. When the Scott family was asked if the video they saw matches what police has described, their attorney replied, “No comment.” So once again are we being provided with a riot in the streets as a result of a made up false narrative from the media and trouble making, race-baiting thugs? Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney stated that he would not release the tape until the investigation was over.
Hot Air states that Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), the only black Republican in the Senate, says he believes it would be helpful if Charlotte, North Carolina authorities would publicly release video of the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. It might, but then again, those with a race-baiting, anarchy agenda, don’t care about the facts or the truth. They are just their to cause trouble.

The family of Keith Lamont Scott has reviewed the video that shows the moment when police fatally shot him in North Carolina on Tuesday, the family’s attorney said.
Police in Charlotte have confirmed to ABC News that they have video that shows Scott had a gun in his hand during his interaction with police officers before he was fatally shot. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said earlier today that the footage he reviewed does not provide “definitive visual evidence that would confirm that a person is pointing a gun.”
“I did not see that in the videos that I reviewed,” Putney said at a news conference. “So what I can tell you, though, is when taken in the totality of all the other evidence, it supports what we’ve heard and the version of the truth that we gave about the circumstances that happened that led to the death of Mr. Scott.”
When the Scott family was asked if the video they saw matches what police has described, their attorney replied, “No comment.”
Earlier, Putney reiterated that he has no plans to publicly release the video, arguing that it would jeopardize the integrity of the investigation.
“We release it when we believe it is a compelling reason, but I’m not going to jeopardize the investigation,” he told reporters.
Whether he was pointing a gun or not, WHY THE HELL DID HE HAVE A GUN? I thought it was a book?
