BREAKING: Protests Erupt in Streets as Police Execute Disabled Man Who “Held a Book”

UPDATE 9/23/16 Raw Footage of Shooting is Released

We have just received the raw footage, filmed by the victim’s wife.

She can be heard pleading with police to shoot her husband, and warning them that he had brain damage.

Conspicuously absent from the video footage is any “gun” near the body of Keith as he lays on the ground dying.

Charolette, NC
“Police just shot my daddy.”

Those are the words of a woman who identified herself as the victim’s daughter.

Her dad was evidently holding a book, and suffered from disabilities.

As he was exiting his car, police shot him to death.

Preliminary reports indicate that the man was completely innocent and unarmed, and police were looking for somebody else but ended up shooting him instead.

Protests erupted immediately and are expected to spread.

Here is the video the daughter took moments after police executed her father, wherein she says “the police just shot my daddy.”

And here is another video showing the start of the protests as citizens surround a police car honking at them.

This article will be updated as more information becomes available.


UPDATE 9/20/16 — 12 Officers Injured in Protests

12 officers have been confirmed as injured as protests are becoming more akin to insurrections.

One officer was struck in the face with a rock.

The reportedly unarmed, disabled victim has been identified as Keith Lamont Scott.

UPDATE 9/21/16

Police are now claiming that the man “had a gun.”

His family and witnesses say there was no gun, however. They say he was holding a book.

Given that police are trained to lie as part of their profession, and given that they have planted guns on people in the past, some would say it is not rational to believe them over the word of the man’s own family.

Some cops have been known to carry “drop guns” or small sacks of drugs in the event that they should have to frame someone innocent in order to cover themselves in court.

Police also spent hours near the man’s vehicle after they shot him and would not let his family near the scene to monitor what they were doing inside the vehicle.

    Its a mess, Black neighborhoods are rife with violence and guns and cops are on edge.

    • way to excuse murder by police

      • magormissabib

        Way to twist what I said.

        • i can read and understand what you said . what you did here is excuse cops for being ‘on edge’ based upon your racist assessment that ‘black neighborhoods are’ … as if every black neighborhood is the same and as if a neighborhood in crisis excuses cops for using violence against unarmed, non-violent people

          if you actually knew what was going on and weren’t a racist fuck, you wouldn’t be posting about ‘black neighborhoods’ under an article about CRIMINAL KILLER COPS

          • magormissabib

            For your information pig he was not unarmed he was a violent thug with a criminal record and a gun, whats more race had nothing to do with it the cop was a black man too

          • there is now video of a white woman who saw this occur : he was not killed by a black cop

            the victim was reading a book, waiting for his son’s bus to drop him there after school, as the witness says he does regularly . police had no legal authority to bother with him at all

            ‘in a black neighbor hood where black violent thugs regularly shoot at and try to kill cops’

            first of all … proof that anyone ‘regularly’ shoots at and tries to kill cops right there where a schoolbus drops off kids

            secondly, your racism is clearly evident

          • magormissabib

            Facts arent racist. You dont win every conversation by pulling the race card Grow up.

          • sad that you think race is a card . in fact, plenty studies have revealed that police in many jurisdictions operate with racial bias : in particular, bias against those with non-white appearance

            almost 90% of whites who are killed are killed by other whites . maybe you should focus on ending white on white crime

            meanwhile, given the long history of police targeting black people, it’s no surprise that, statistically, more cop killings are done by black people

            in ’13, 27 officers were killed with 28 perpetrators being found

            of those 28 :::

            ’26 of the alleged offenders were male, 1 was female, and gender was not reported for 1 offender.
            15 of the alleged offenders were white, 11 were black, and race was not reported for 2 offenders.’

            think about this ::: 26/28 cop killers were MALE

            by your logic, maybe we should do something about MALE ON POLICE crime … or, for that matter, MALE ON EVERYBODY crime . maybe it’s men who are the problem

            11/28 cop killers were black . this doesn’t fit your ‘black men kill almost the same amount of cops as white men that kill cops’

            while i agree that statistically, black men are killing more cops than white men are killing, i still don’t see how you can refuse to take into account that, statistically, black men are harassed by police


            ‘A higher percentage of black drivers (13%) than white (10%) and Hispanic (10%) drivers were stopped by police during 2011.’
            ‘A lower percentage of white drivers stopped by police in 2011 were searched (2%) than black (6%) or Hispanic (7%) drivers.’

            police were originally amassed as slave catchers, and, to this day, are continuing to deliver bodies into slavery via the systemically racist penal system

            these are facts, and facts don’t lie

            “sad that you think race is a card”
            When you open your comment with a remark like that it is immediately obvious that you are a waste of time. Why even bother typing anything after that.

          • magormissabib

            Black people are just violent. It a contributing factor in why they are killed by the police. Stop trying to complicate it. Watch

          • wow . you really have no clue . bye

          • magormissabib

            We know. Same old story ” Dindu nuffin.”

  • magormissabib

    It s like a cannibal scene in a Tarzan movie

  • People/reporters should stop using status elevating words like officer, peace officer and police cruiser. It is a just police man and a police car. There is a lot of power in words, and these Inverted Totalitarian State representing individuals need to be stripped, as much as possible, from their aura of authority and invincibility.
