Charlotte Police Say Video Shows Keith Lamont Scott Had Gun in Hand When Shot By Police

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?

All Charges Dropped Against Baltimore Officers in Freddie Gray Case … Now Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby Being Sued by Police Officers

ALL REMAINING CHARGES DROPPED AGAINST BALTIMORE POLICE OFFICERS AS POLITICAL WITCH HUNT COMES TO AN END

On Wednesday, the state’s attorney in Baltimore, Maryland did what should have been done at the outset, all remaining charges against three Baltimore police officers awaiting trial in the case of the death of Freddie Gray have been dropped. Thus ending the complete failure and political witch hunt by Baltimore state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby. In the end, Moseby was 0-6 in her rush to judgement to prosecute law enforcement and has nothing but egg on her face. This was a disgraceful prosecution meant to placate the mob and even in admitting complete in utter defeat, Marilyn Mosby still blames the system when she was soundly defeated.

Prosecutors dropped all charges Wednesday against three Baltimore police officers accused in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, bringing to an end one of the highest-profile criminal cases in the city’s history with zero convictions.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby acknowledged the long odds of securing convictions in the remaining cases following the acquittals of three other officers on similar though more serious charges.

In a hearing Wednesday meant to start the trial of Officer Garrett Miller, prosecutors dropped their cases against him, Officer William Porter and Sgt. Alicia White. Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams, who had acquitted the other officers, was expected to preside over the remaining trials as well.

New York Times:

The state’s attorney here dropped all remaining charges Wednesday against three city police officers awaiting trial in the death of Freddie Gray, closing the book on one of the most closely watched police prosecutions in the nation without a single conviction — and few answers about precisely how the young man died.

The announcement ended a sweeping, deeply polarizing prosecution that began last spring, as National Guard troops rumbled through the streets, with Baltimore under curfew and residents tense after looting and riots that broke out after Mr. Gray sustained a fatal spinal cord injury in police custody.

Wednesday’s extraordinary turn put into sharp relief the wrenching national debate over race and policing, after a month of deadly shootings of black men and deadly retaliations against police officers around the nation. Just a few weeks ago, President Obama pleaded for racial healing after five police officers in Dallas were gunned down by a black Army veteran. The outcome also left the city deeply divided over whether its top prosecutor, Marilyn J. Mosby, 36, had overreached in her initial charges.

Freddie Gray officers suing prosecutor Marilyn Mosby.

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby is going from prosecutor to civil defendant in connection with the case of the death of Freddie Gray.

On Wednesday, Mosby announced that charges against three officers still facing trial were being dropped. Mosby gave only a statement, but had to leave without taking questions because five of the officers in the case have filed lawsuits against her.

Officers Garrett Miller, Edward Nero and William Porter as well as Sgt. Alicia White and Lt. Brian Rice are suing Mosby and Maj. Samuel Cogen of the Baltimore Sheriff’s Office. Cogen was the law enforcement officer who filed charging documents against the officers.

The lawsuits allege false arrest, false imprisonment, defamation or false light, and other assertions. They were filed in U.S. District Court in Maryland in 2015 in late April and early May around the time the officers were arrested.
