Charlotte PD Refusing To Release Video of Keith Scott Being Killed by Police

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The grieving relatives of a man who was killed by the police here watched videos on Thursday of the fatal shooting, a wrenching experience that they said revealed no hint of aggression in him and left the family members convinced that the videos should be made public. But the city’s police chief, who had arranged for the private viewing, held fast to his decision not to release the recordings.

The wife and other relatives of the dead man, Keith L. Scott, watched his killing from two angles, recorded Tuesday by police dashboard and body cameras, and “it was incredibly difficult,” a family lawyer, Justin Bamberg, said in a statement.

He said the family had come away with more questions than answers and a different interpretation from the account offered by the police, who have said that Mr. Scott, 43, was shot after he got out of his car brandishing a gun.

“When told by police to exit his vehicle, Mr. Scott did so in a very calm, nonaggressive manner,” Mr. Bamberg said. “While police did give him several commands, he did not aggressively approach them or raise his hands at members of law enforcement at any time.” When an officer opened fire, he added, “Mr. Scott’s hands were by his side, and he was slowly walking backwards.”

On Thursday night, hundreds of people gathered at an intersection in central Charlotte, holding signs and chanting, “We want the tapes!” in a peaceful demonstration.

Mayor Jennifer Roberts ordered a midnight-to-6-a.m. curfew, the first since the unrest began, though the demonstrations were largely peaceful, and the police did not enforce the curfew as it went into effect. The police said that two officers were being treated after protesters sprayed them with a chemical. There were no immediate reports of injuries to civilians.

On Thursday evening, some protesters marched to the police headquarters and held a moment of silence, fists raised in tribute to a man who was fatally shot during the previous night’s protest and to those killed by the police. They marched to the county jail and chanted for the inmates behind the slats. Some inside blinked their lights off and on in apparent solidarity.

Later, Interstate 277 was briefly shut down as demonstrators moved onto the roadway, and the police fired smoke to try to disperse them.

Mr. Scott’s death touched off violence in Charlotte on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. As hundreds of National Guard troops and State Police officers fanned out across the city on Thursday in an effort to head off further violence, Chief Kerr Putney of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police brushed aside demands by activists, community leaders and the news media to make the police video public.

“We release it when we believe there is a compelling reason,” he said.

Until they viewed the videos on Thursday afternoon, Mr. Scott’s relatives had said they were uncertain whether they should be released to the public, according to Mr. Bamberg.

While the family members differed with the police on some major points about the videos, they seemed to be in agreement with Chief Putney on one aspect. “It is impossible to discern from the videos what, if anything, Mr. Scott is holding in his hands,” they said in a statement.

Earlier in the day, Chief Putney said, “The video does not give me absolute, definitive visual evidence that would confirm that a person is pointing a gun.” He added later that he could not see Mr. Scott’s hands. But the chief, speaking at a news conference, said that eyewitness accounts and other evidence suggested that Mr. Scott was holding a pistol at the time he was shot, and that a weapon had been found at the scene.

Mr. Scott was black — as is the officer who shot him, Brentley Vinson — and his death added to a long list of killings of black men at the hands of law enforcement that had rocked cities and spurred protests around the country, bolstering claims of racial bias in policing.

On Thursday, a white officer in Tulsa, Okla., was charged with manslaughter in the fatal shooting an unarmed black man last week — a case in which startling police video was released within days of the encounter.

During Wednesday night’s demonstrations, a protester was shot in the head in what the police described as a “civilian on civilian” episode. But some protesters accused the police of opening fire. Early Thursday evening, just about the time a crowd was gathering, the police announced that the man had died earlier in the day and that the department had begun a homicide investigation.

The police identified the victim as Justin Carr, 26, without elaborating further on his death.

Some black leaders and protesters have called for the public release of the videos from the outset, and those demands have grown louder in the succeeding days.

“There must be transparency, and the video must be released,” said the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, the president of the North Carolina N.A.A.C.P.

He said the protesters who had taken to the streets here by the hundreds since Mr. Scott’s death were “rising up against systems of injustice that protect officers who kill.”

“It’s about saying we are against bad police, because bad police make it bad for good police,” Mr. Barber said.

In a day of rapid developments and rolling news conferences, local, state and federal officials called for calm. Protests had escalated the previous night, with some people smashing windows and storefronts, and the police used tear gas to disperse crowds and made 44 arrests. Nine civilians were injured, two officers had minor eye injuries, and three officers had heat exhaustion.

At 12:30 a.m. Thursday, local officials declared a state of emergency, calling for help from state forces, who deployed during the day in a show of strength throughout the city. Gov. Pat McCrory said he started mobilizing the National Guard early Wednesday in anticipation of that request, but he refused to second-guess Chief Putney and Mayor Roberts for not asking for help sooner.

The State Bureau of Investigation began an investigation of the case, the governor said, and critics of the police asked for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to step in. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch said the Justice Department and the F.B.I. were monitoring events and offering help to local officials.

“I know that the events of recent days are painfully unclear and call out for answers,” Ms. Lynch said. “But I also know that the answer will not be found in the violence of recent days.”

Protests began Tuesday night after Officer Vinson shot Mr. Scott while the police were serving a warrant on someone else. Starkly different accounts have emerged about what happened. The police say Mr. Scott was holding a gun before he was shot; friends and family say it was a book. Though the videos do not offer definitive proof on their own, they support the official version of events, Chief Putney said.

“When taking in the totality of all the other evidence, it supports what we’ve heard and the version of the truth that we gave about the circumstances that happened that led to the death of Mr. Scott,” he said. He added that the department’s practice was not to release video to the public, to protect the integrity of investigations.

Demonstrators and black community leaders said the outrage was not just about what had happened to Mr. Scott, but was fueled by a much broader context. “We need folks to understand there is a direct connection between the rioting and the creation of two separate groups based on class and race for decades,” said Justin Perry, an addiction counselor who is black and took part in the protest.

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus pressed the Justice Department to do more by starting a thorough investigation into recent police shootings that had led to nationwide protests. Lawmakers from the 45-member group marched from the Capitol to the Justice Department to deliver a letter to Ms. Lynch, reinforcing the significance of their concerns.

Both Chief Putney and Mayor Roberts sought to reassure residents that the city was prepared to avert another night of violence. Ms. Roberts said that the city was safe. “Our transit system is running; our businesses are open; our center city is here to welcome you,” she said on Thursday morning.

Still, several large businesses encouraged employees to stay home after the chaos.

Wells Fargo told approximately 12,000 employees that they were not expected to report to work in Charlotte’s Uptown neighborhood. Those unable to work remotely would be paid regardless, a spokesman said. Ally, the financial services company, closed two offices in Charlotte, affecting 900 employees. Duke Energy asked 500 employees and contractors to work remotely, and Fifth Third Bank asked the same of its employees.

With No Apparent Motive, Atlanta-Area Female Lures A Man to his Death via Dating App

After doing some research, this is becoming a steady problem in America.  It would seem that men are being preyed upon through dating apps/sites.  These women out here are savage, please put on the armor of education and (not so) common sense. This is the reason I love what I do, keeps me and those around me on our toes.  What’s sad about this one, as said in the article title, had no apparent motive.

Questions still abound in the Sept. 1 murder of 23-year-old Norcross resident Jordan Collins, but warrants released Monday suggest his death was the result of a date gone wrong.

Clarissa McGhee, a baby-faced 21-year-old McDonough resident, is accused of meeting the victim at a Redan home “under the pretense of a date” before “luring” him outside, where he was shot to death. The two reportedly met on the PlentyOfFish online dating site. The warrants also allege McGhee shot Collins’ surviving brother, Chad Collins, five times “with intent to murder” as he tried to help Jordan Collins.

The most glaring question not answered by the documents is: Why?

DeKalb police spokesman Maj. Stephen Fore said Monday the investigation was still active and he hoped to have more information to release later in the week.

It wasn’t immediately clear how many people have been charged in the case. The warrants list four other adults besides McGhee and the brothers who were at the home during the shooting. Fore said the department wasn’t prepared to release information on “the possibility of additional suspects…”

Three children were also there but weren’t injured.

McGhee remained jailed Monday after her Saturday arrest.

The shooting happened early in the morning at a home off Tunbridge Wells Road, according to police.

Chad Collins, 24, told police his brother went outside to quiet a barking dog, at the request of McGhee and others. He reported hearing his brother say “chill out,” before a gunshot. Chad Collins then ran outside to help and was also shot.

Everyone fled the scene, except for Jordan Collins, who lay dead on the back patio.

A search of a cell phone led police to McGhee, the warrants say.

Metro Atlanta Gas Shortage: What You Need To Know

We realize all of our readers are not from Atlanta, and we thank you for your support.  We still encourage you check out this one for future reference in your area, should it ever be affected by similar circumstances.

(AJC) If battling traffic was not enough of a headache, drivers across metro Atlanta began the work week with a new problem: gas shortages following an Alabama pipeline leak.

How can I find gas in metro Atlanta without driving from station to station?

GasBuddy tracks information such as gas prices. Google and MapQuest offer similar services.

All three apps are available for download in the Apple app store and on Google Play.

If those don’t work, try the old fashioned way: calling nearby gas stations directly.

Have gas prices been affected?

Yes, the average price per gallon for regular unleaded gasoline in Georgia is $2.32, up from about $2.26 Sunday, according to AAA.

The average price in Georgia was about $2.10 about a week ago, AAA said.

Gas prices could continue to jump Monday.

Should I be concerned?

No need to panic, an expert told Channel 2 Action News.

“The analysts that we’ve spoken to really say there’s enough gas supply available,” AAA spokesman Garrett Townsend said. “However, it’s tightened up a little bit, so it’s gonna take a little longer for those trucks getting to the stations, filling back up and that gasoline being available for motorists.

“This is really what we hope is just a blip in a radar and those prices will continue to retreat through the fall, which is normally what they do.”

Is there anywhere I can still find cheap gas?

Your nearest Costco or Sam’s Club are often where gas prices will be cheapest.

Other options for regular unleaded gas:

In southwest Atlanta, gas was $2.24 at the Citgo at 655 Cleveland Ave.

In northeast Atlanta, gas was $2.39 at the QuickTrip at 2375 North Druid Hills Road.

In College Park, the cash-only price of regular gas was $2.19 a gallon at the Valero at 3293 Main St.

In Alpharetta, gas was $2.39 a gallon at the Kroger gas station at 12460 Crapapple Road.

In East Point, gas was $2.29 at the Shell at 890 Cleveland Ave.

In Duluth, the cash-only gas price was $2.36 at Murphy USA at 2625 Pleasant Hill Road.

(Prices as of 11 a.m. Monday, according to GasBuddy.)

From The Weekend: Meek Mill x Beanie Sigel x Omelly vs The Game ???

If you out living your life, and came back to work this morning, you’re probably like “How TF did these two end up beefing?”  The report from the weekend suggests that it all may be over  a chain snatching involving Sean Kingston, though some law enforcement officials are saying that investigation is done, due to Kingston’s lack of cooperation.  They also added that Game was never a suspect.  Game had a show in Miami at the beginning of the weekend, where he called out Meek for snitching on him.  The next morning, 92 Bars was premiered on The Breakfast Club and was accompanied by another new track from his upcoming project 1992 titled “True Colors”

I know what you’re thinking, WCW, and you have every reason.

Then Sunday came…. and the Meek Mill track Ooouuu with assists from Omelly and yes, Beanie Sigel with one line.  It all provided much needed entertainment and energy to hip hop, I have to admit the Drake situation had run its course. I just pray that it all stays in the music, though shots were fired at Game’s show in Miami where the initial diss occurred.  Check out the music below and vote for who you think won this round

French Montana & Wiz Khalifa Say Max B is Coming Home

Despite a 75-year prison sentence handed down in 2009 for a deadly armed robbery, Wiz Khalifa tweeted Friday (Sept. 16) that rapper Max B willget out of jail early after his sentence was shortened. Max’s publicist confirmed the news in a press release.

The Harlem-based rapper (real name: Charly Wingate) was sentenced alongside stepbrother Kelvin Leerdam, who received a life term plus 35 years after jurors found that he fatally shot one of the victims.

Max B’s publicist issued a press release stating that the rapper had entered a plea deal for the sole charge of aggravated manslaughter, while all his original charges on his 12-count indictment, including first-degree murder and first-degree robbery, will be dropped. No definitive release date has yet been set.

“This proceeding was not a question of my guilt or innocence, but about the bad advice, poor judgment, and overall ineffectiveness of my trial attorney,” Max said in a statement.

Max, 38 — who was signed to Jim Jones’ Byrd Gang label back in 2006 — has stayed in the public eye behind bars, even releasing the song “Silver Surfer,” featuring Khalifa, Joe Young and Alpac, on SoundCloud in February. The song followed a brief Twitter beef between Khalifa and Kanye West in January, when ‘Ye indicated that he would name his next album (eventually titled The Life of Pablo) Waves. “Max B is the wavy one,” Wiz tweeted at the time. “He created the wave. There is no wave without him.”
