Morons who are short on details but long on stupidity rioted for racial equality when a black man was shot by a cop that turned out to be black.
Here’s what happened:
Protests erupted overnight Tuesday into Wednesday in Charlotte, North Carolina, after a police officer shot and killed an African-American man while looking for another person who had an outstanding warrant.
According to local reports, police officers saw Keith Lamont Scott getting out of his car while holding a gun. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said Scott posed an imminent danger to officers, and Officer Brentley Vinson, who is also African-American, shot the man.
Of course, the rioting idiots didn’t wait to discover that the cop was also black, they just assumed it was racially motivated. It really undermines the narrative when the cop shooting the guy happens to be black too. But as we all know, most of these rioters can care less about “racial inequality,” they’ve just been propagandized to outrage and destruction by the lies of the “black lives matter” movement.
Protesters gathered near the scene of the shooting, an area near the campus of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Footage from the protests showed people shouting “Black lives matter,” “Hands up, don’t shoot” and “No justice, no peace.” A reporter with a local NBC affiliate posted a video of a journalist injured by a rock hurled in her direction, as the police department deployed its civil emergency unit. At 10:46 p.m., the department’s official Twitter account said that an officer “sustained injuries in an attempt to deescalate agitators during demonstration.”
Funny, they don’t mention how they were yelling, “f**k the police” in this account, as was reported by a journalist at the scene here.
