Dangerous riots erupt in Charlotte- watch angry mob DESTROY cop cars, injure cops, loot, set fire to city

DC-NEWS 300X71By Blake Neff, DCNF

Charlotte, N.C., erupted into a riot Tuesday night after hundreds of people gathered to protest the fatal shooting of a black man.

According to police, officers were serving a warrant when they encountered Keith Lamont Scott in his car. Police say Scott got out of his car with a gun and was shot because he posed an immediate threat.

But, according to demonstrators on the scene and supporters online, Scott was a disabled man who was simply holding a book and was no threat when he was gunned down. Soon after the shooting, people began to gather, and they soon swelled to a crowd of hundreds and began clashing with riot police.

“We out like the Taliban!” one rioter could be heard crying on a Facebook Live broadcast of the protests, shortly after tear gas canisters were fired into the crowd. After 11 p.m., the situation grew more severe, with several people successfully trashing a police SUV.

“We ain’t playin’ no motherfuckin’ games, nigga!” another demonstrator yelled on the Facebook broadcast, trying to fire up other protesters.

“This ain’t no one-day action!” another cried. “This is the first time people standing up!”

Ironically, the police officer responsible for shooting Scott, Brentley Vinson, is also a black man.
