Is a mischievous Trump backer paying #BlackLivesMatter rioters to swing North Carolina for him? After the Keith Lamont Scott debacle, it certainly seems possible.
A Charlotte-Mecklenburg shot Scott, a 43-year-old black man, on Tuesday while searching for another suspect with an outstanding warrant. Police chief Kerr Putney, himself black, said officers saw Scott get out of his vehicle with a handgun, and told him to drop it. Scott exited his vehicle once again carrying a gun, and an officer who perceived a him to be a threat shot him.
The police chief insisted Scott was given “clear warnings” before an officer fired on him. Scott was also given medical attention immediately, before emergency medics arrived, but died from the gunshot injuries.
“The officers gave loud, clear verbal commands which were also heard by many of the witnesses. They were instructing the subject, once he got out of the vehicle, to drop the weapon,” Putney said at a Wednesday press conference. “Mr. Scott exited his vehicle armed with a handgun as the officers continued to yell at him to drop it.”
What kicked off the uproar at Scott’s death? According to Fox News, a female claiming that she was Scott’s daughter uploaded a video saying “the po-leece just shot my daddy four times for being black,” cussing out police and spitting racial epithets at them, saying he was “disabled” and “he ain’t got not m*therfuckin’ gun.”
The story quickly became: “Disabled Black Man Shot Dead by Police While Reading in Car.” And over at Black and SJW Twitter, word was that an unarmed black man was shot by cops while reading a book. Plus, North Carolina is open carry! A black man with a book is more dangerous than a black man with a gun! Talk about #Woke. And so on.
We stand with you Charlotte protestors. ✊🏾. #KeithLamontScott

The last time someone was at risk of getting killed for reading or knowing how to read was during slavery. It's 2016 tho. #KeithLamontScott

NC= OPEN carry state. Please explain the justification in killing an unarmed, disabled Black man reading a book in his car #keithlamontscott

They act like they're interested in us getting an education, but soon as we read a book, learning is a crime. #KeithLamontScott

Scott’s brother (allegedly) also went on camera to call all white officer and white people “devils.”

Putney was well aware of #BlackLivesMatter working to create another martyr: “It’s time to change the narrative, because I can tell you from the facts that the story’s a little bit different as to how it’s been portrayed so far, especially through social media.
As it happens, a black officer shot Scott, Brentley Vinson — and the #BlackLivesMatter narrative swiftly became that it’s white people’s fault, anyway. A black police chief, a black police officer, and a black shooting victim is still whiteness at work, according the #BlackLivesMatter.
And a book? Really? Don’t #BlackLivesMatter hoaxers know books are like kryptonite? (Notice too that Rock’s black audience is in stitches.) As we know from the bogus “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative, black witnesses can and will lie to keep the anti-cop and anti-white narrative rolling.

Riots kicked off, with blacks looting, stopping traffic, vandalizing news crew equipment and a police vehicle, setting vehicles on fire, and dropping rocks on overpasses as cars passed.

All told, 16 officers were injured by rampaging black rioters, according to Chief Putney. Only one person was arrested.
Why didn’t Scott simply drop his gun when police told him to? If black men are so fearful of being shot by racist white cops, why do they treat every interaction with law enforcement as a trial by combat where if they win, they’re free to go? They don’t act like citizens quivering under the boot of a police state. Terence Crutcher was not a martyr — he was a maniac high on PCP who disobeyed police. That’s not to say he “deserved to die,” but who reading this would expect to confront police while high on a hard drug and come out on top?
