North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory Calls out National Guard as Charlotte Police Shooting Protests Turn into Riots for Second Night
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.”
Man Described as the Brother of Keith Lamont Scott Called all White People & White Cops are “F*cking Devils” (VIDEO)
HMM, IMAGINE IF THE ROLLS WERE REVERSED AND A WHITE PERSON SAID THE SAME? DOES SOME ONE NEED TO INFORM THIS MAN THAT SCOTT WAS SHOT BY A BLACK POLICE OFFICER?
A man who described himself as the brother of slain Keith Lamont Scott went on a rant yesterday and called all white people and cops “fucking devils.” Obviously tensions and emotions are high in Charlotte, North Carolina after the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott; however, all of the facts are not yet in and making such comments and having such racist and bigoted beliefs are hardly helping the situation. Hmm, the problem is here is Scott was shot by a black police officer. Here lies the insidious nature and ignorance of racism and bigotry. It works for both sides.
Asked if there was anything people should know, the man, Tim Jackson, responded, “Just know that all white people are fucking devils. All white cops are fucking devils, and white people.”
The death of Keith Lamont Scott has sparked outrage, protests and riots in Charlotte. However, there is a difference in this case where the race merchants and Black Lives Matters cannot exploit, Keith Lamont Scott was shot and killed by an African-American police officer, Brentley Vinson, who works for a force run by a black police chief.

THE NFL AND SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS ARE TREADING ON THIN ICE WITH THIS ONE …
The Santa Clara police union members have warned the San Francisco 49ers that they may stop providing security at their games over quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s ongoing protest against systemic racism. And so they should. If the big mouth, misinformed and misguided 49ers QB wants to mouth off and the NFL and San Francisco 49er ownership want to support him that is their right. However, it is also the police’s right to tell the team to find their own security. Honestly, who would want to provide security to an organization that thinks it is perfectly okay from one of their players to wear socks with pigs wearing police hats mocking the police?
So the NFL would not let the Dallas Cowboys remember the fallen Dallas police officers, but they allow this crap to happen. Keep it up NFL.
Santa Clara police union members have warned the San Francisco 49ers that they may stop providing security at their games over quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s ongoing protest against systemic racism.
Urging team owners to reprimand Kaepernick for sitting during the national anthem and speaking out against police violence, the union said failure to do so “could result in police officers choosing not to work at your facilities,” according to a letter obtained by NBC Bay Area.
“I’m already hearing it this week that next week on Monday Night Football, some officers are not going to work,” Santa Clara Police Officers Association president Frank Saunders told the network.
Saunders said his officers are angry that the 49ers star has spoken out against cops who have gotten “away with murder” in fatal shootings of black Americans, and that he wore socks in practice that showed pigs wearing police uniforms.
“The 49ers are allowing this to come out from an employee and it’s making for a hostile work environment for us at the stadium,” Saunders told NBC.
The team has chosen not to discipline Kaepernick for choosing to sit during “The Star Spangled Banner, citing the principles of “freedom of religion and freedom of expression.”
