Charlotte: Release the footage of Keith Lamont Scott's killing
Keith Lamont Scott deserves justice.
Join us in calling on the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department to release body or dash cam footage that captured the events surrounding the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, the 194th Black person killed by U.S. police this year.
In the interest of transparency and accountability, and particularly in light of conflicting accounts about the shooting, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department should quickly release any and all footage it has of the events surrounding the shooting. The public deserves answers.
What we already know is that far too many people of color are victims of wrongful targeting and excessive use of force by law enforcement officers across the country. Mr. Scott was shot and killed while police were trying to execute a warrant for a different person. We demand a full investigation into why yet another Black person in the United States has died at the hands of a police officer.
