But Keith Lamont Scott was not shot by a white officer.
He was shot and killed by an African-American CMPD officer.
There was no book nearby.
And there was a gun, which other witnesses in the apartment complex admit seeing in Scott’s hands as officers warned him repeatedly to put it down.
Scott’s family apparently made up their story about how he died as they went along.And so called journalists went along with it because the lie fit their narrative. But, how does the Scott family benefit from creating the lie, and how can they think it was doing the right thing to do so? I understand the emotional turmoil the people close to Keith Scott must feel, but it appears that the death of Keith Scott was caused by Keith Scott, in an apparent suicide by cop. Was Scott associated with the Muslim movement, wherein he would supposedly gain benefits in heaven by martyring himself? (Also note the difference between what a Christian martyr is versus Muslim Martyr. In Christianity one can not initiate martyrdom by killing, or threatening to kill others. No, you must be killed while peacefully practicing Christianity. As with everything else, Muslims have it backwards.)
Back to the question asked earlier, about how the Charlotte Rioters came together so quickly and on the spot seemed to come up with a decision "we should riot." To me this defies explanation. Have these people got nothing better to do? Don't any of them have to go to work in the morning? What about taking care of their families? Getting the kids bathed, teeth brushed, homework done, and off to bed? If this was a "flash mob," brought together by social media, doesn't the press have equal access to social media? Don't the police? Bring an old fart, without a smart phone, I am not on social media. Besides, the current "in" media changes every five seconds, so why bother.
Bob Owens has an answer to that as well in a piece entitled American ISIS: Time to Treat Black Lives Matter as the Domestic Terrorist It Is. Black Lives Matter is in fact a Leftist terror group. Like all terrorists, they use violence, in this case rioting, and the threat of rioting, as a way to intimidate the population and get them to pressure their political leaders to give in to their (unstated) demands. As far as what their demands might be, it seems they want to be able to commit crimes without consequence. that's all. They want to be able to brandish a gun, and not have the police react. They want to be able to mug people, intimidate them, sell drugs, whatever, without consequence.
Of course, the people behind the scenes, the REAL power, want to create chaos and destruction in hopes of provoking a sense of crisis. As Rahm Emanuel said, a good crisis should never be waste. The powers behind BLM hope to be able to put in place laws that take away our rights and with them everything we have in this world. Don't give in.
