  • PHOTO: Hillary plays to empty pews at NC black church

    Seating was not an issue during Hillary Clinton’s appearance at a black church in Charlotte, North Carolina on Sunday morning. Clinton hammered on themes of “systemic racism,” white privilege and police brutality to the overwhelmingly black audience in an apparent effort to shore up that sector of support. But as video shows, there apparently wasn’t much clamoring to hear her speak. Here’s a shot as the camera panned out to show the congregants. Except for the first couple rows, the pews were sparsely filled.
  • Charlotte rioters don’t care if shooting was justified

    The National Post ^ | September 26, 2016 | Rich Lowry
    The Charlotte rioters didn’t know whether the controversial police shooting of Keith Scott was justified, and didn’t care. They worked their mayhem — trashing businesses and injuring cops, with one protester killed in the disorder — before anything meaningful could be ascertained about the case except that the cops said Scott had a gun and his family said he didn’t. Charlotte is the latest episode in the evidence-free Black Lives Matter movement that periodically erupts in violence after officer-involved shootings. The movement is beholden to a narrative of systematic police racism to which every case is made to conform, regardless...

    Celebrating the racial diversity of the Charlotte protesters last week, William Barber II, chairman of the North Carolina NAACP, proudly proclaimed, "This is what democracy looks like." Well, if Barber is right, so, too, was John Adams, who warned us that "democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." Consider what the protesters, who, exults Barber, "show us a way forward to peace and justice," accomplished. In the first two nights of rioting, the mob injured a dozen cops, beat white people, smashed and looted stores,...

    “That ain’t no cop’s gun, Frank!” —DIRTY HARRY 2: MAGNUM FORCE, 1973. Does anybody really think the police are so stupid they would toss “a throw down, cold piece,” a planted gun, into a crime scene, knowing they are under video surveillance from multiple sources? And that the police never heard about pocket-lint being caught in a throw-down, “cold piece,” thereby ultimately incriminating the thrower?

    Washington (CNN) -- Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts said Republican nominee Donald Trump's assumption that drugs are a factor in her city's protests is "presumptuous." "It's presumptuous for him to make conclusions like that without having thorough conversations with some of the folks who are here on the ground and are really aware of what's going on and what the reasoning is," she told CNN's Carol Costello on "Newsroom." Multiple police officers and citizens have been injured this week during protests after the fatal shooting of Keith Lamont Scott by a police officer. Charlotte police say Scott was armed at the...

    Hillary Clinton is taking a break from debate prep to visit the site of a fatal police shooting. Clinton on Sunday will visit Charlotte, N.C., where police killed a black man earlier this week, NBC News reported. Protests erupted on the streets of the city in the wake of his death. The trip is Clinton's only scheduled campaign travel before the first 2016 presidential debate Monday night at Hofstra University in New York. On Tuesday, officer Brentley Vinson fatally shot Keith Lamont Scott, 43, during a confrontation at an apartment complex as the police were searching for another man. Cellphone...

  • Charlotte Shooting Video: Footage Shows Fatal Encounter Between Police, Keith Lamont Scott

    Unsettling footage obtained by NBC News shows the moments leading up to the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott in Charlotte, North Carolina. The video, taken by Scott's wife, does not clearly show the exact moment he was shot by police on Tuesday. Scott is seen on the ground surrounded by police officers moments after the shots were fired. "He better not be f---ing dead, he better not be f---ing dead," Rakeyia Scott can be heard shouting at the officers. "He better live, he better live!" It is not clear what preceded the shooting. The killing of Scott, 43,...

    Tests revealed Keith Scott's fingerprints, DNA and blood were on a gun recovered at Tuesday’s officer-involved shooting scene, police sources told Channel 9 reporter Mark Becker. Scott was shot and killed Tuesday afternoon by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer in University City. Police said they have video of the shooting, but will not release it so it doesn’t jeopardize the investigation. Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts said she believes that the video should be released, but she said it's a matter of timing.
  • Wife of Keith Scott, Charlotte Shooting Victim, Filmed Fatal Encounter With Police

    09/23/2016 10:43:20 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 57 replies
    A cellphone camera video made by the wife of Keith L. Scott before he was fatally shot by police here shows the moments before and after the incident, including the wife’s pleas to her husband to get out of his truck, and her pleas to the police not to shoot him. But the video, which was given to the Times by attorneys for the family Friday, does not include a view of the shooting itself. Nor does it answer the crucial question of whether Mr. Scott had a gun, as the police have maintained.

    In moments of social unrest featuring violence and crime, one would expect the only proper role of the taxpayer-funded federal government is to quash the disturbance. However, a unit of progressive attorneys within the Department of Justice has been at the center of every significant riot during the Obama administration, and this unit -- the Community Relations Service, or CRS -- was not at those scenes to protect the safety of all citizens. In fact, the CRS was caught encouraging the chaos. Not only did CRS side only with the protesters and not with law enforcement, they actively facilitated...

    After violent protests raged for the second night in Charlotte over the police shooting of a black man, the city's police chief told reporters Thursday he has no intention of releasing dashcam video of Keith Lamont Scott's shooting "to the masses." Asked if there was a time at which the public could expect to see it, Chief Kerr Putney said there should be no such expectation. "Transparency's in the eye of the beholder," he said. "If you think we should display a victim's worst day for public consumption, that is not the transparency I'm speaking of." Scott's family has asked...

The deaths of Terence Crutcher and Keith Lamont Scott cut deep into the hearts of Tulsa, Oklahoma and Charlotte, North Carolina. But scenes from the two communities on the night of September 21 show they expressed the pain in two drastically different ways.

    As violence escalated in Charlotte, N.C. Wednesday night, reporters became part of the story as protesters turned on the media. CNN anchor Don Lemon stopped the broadcast feed as a CNN camera crew was confronted by rioters who attempted to block the camera yelling “F**king liars!” “As happens in these particular situations, the crowd gets out of control and then they try to assault or at least intimidate our camera people and our news people,” Lemon said. Fox News reporter Steve Harrigan got into a verbal confrontation with a woman he was interviewing when she accused him of wanting video...

    Black Lives Matter rioters claiming systemic racial discrimination is killing black people have laid siege to largely black Charlotte, North Carolina, after a black cop who reports to a black police chief shot and killed a black suspect who reportedly refused to drop his handgun. With Election Day only weeks away, it is possible the chaos in the Tarheel State is part of a left-wing get-out-the-vote effort to foment unrest in the state's black communities. Remember that Democrat Barack Obama narrowly won the vitally important battleground state in 2008 and narrowly lost it in 2012.

    FOX News is currently broadcasting an ongoing riot by black lives matters and other agitator groups in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. One black man has been shot and a Nother has been injured. The identity of the shooter has not been determined. They are rioting in front of the Ritz Carlton and Omni hotels, and have also destroyed a Mercedes SUV. It is complete bedlam over the shooting of a armed black man by a black police officer. Thanks, Obama! /s
