Charlotte, NC -- The new Black Lives Matter poster person (if I use the word 'boy' that would be considered a racist micro-aggression by college leftists who monitor those things) Keith Lamont Scott, 43, was shot and killed in Charlotte, NC after a confrontation with police.
The police claimed Scott was holding a gun and refused to drop it, but his wife, Rakeyia Scott, claimed that he was holding a book.
What has just been learned is that Scott had allegedly stabbed his wife in the back, hit one of his children and threatened to kill his family, Rakeyia claimed in multiple requests she made for domestic violence protective orders, one of which was filed last year.
According to local media who obtained documents, in 2004, Rakeyia Scott wrote that her husband "assaulted me several times by stabbing me in the back almost puncturing my lungs, he sliced me [sic] ear, and bruised my body," Fox 46 reported.
The more recent report written in October 2015 said: "He hit my 8 year old in the head a total of three times with is [sic] fist . . . He kicked me and threaten [sic] to kill us last night with his gun. He said he is a 'killer' and we should know that."
She also said that Keith carried a 9mm handgun but had no permit for the weapon.
The October 2015 order was dismissed later that month after Rakeyia claimed that her husband no longer posed a threat to the family. But the status of the 2004 request is not yet known.
Scott's wife reportedly recorded video of Keith's encounter with police last week. Police say he was armed with a gun, which was recovered at the scene which police say had been stolen and later sold to Mr. Scott. You can hear Rakeyia in the video yelling at her husband, "Don't do it. Keith, don't do it."
The two and a half-minute video doesn't show the shooting but gunshots can be heard after police command Scott to "Drop the gun," several times.
Portions of body cam video of the shooting has been released and more is hoped to be released after a State Bureau of Investigation probe is complete. Police Chief Kerr Putney said that a new state law takes effect Oct. 1st requiring a judge's approval for further release of video footage.
Over 100 angry low-information protesters jammed City Council chambers Monday to vent their frustrations with police. Without knowing the full story, the fact that any shooting of a black person by a police officer, black or white, is a racist act in their mind, regardless of whether the cop's life was in danger.
Keith Scott, Michael Brown and all of those who failed to comply with law enforcement and in many cases, broke the law, are not victims of police racism or brutality. Many of them are simply thugs who were too stupid to comply with police and posed a danger to them. But Black Lives Matter does not care about facts. They care about the script they pretend is playing out.
Knowing now what we have learned about Keith Lamont Scott, it becomes easier to believe law enforcement's version of the story. And until other facts prove otherwise, Black Lives Matter and all the rest of the race hustlers can sit on it.
