    Police right in shooting Keith Lamont Scott

    Keith Lamont Scott 's shooting was justified. This was not his first run-in with police. People protested his killing, but did not know his record. But, his family did and should have known this was going to happen sooner or later.


    He served time in Texas for shooting at police officers.
    His wife put 2 restraining orders on him. One for stabbing her in the back and one for threatening to kill her with a gun.
    He pulled up next to an unmarked police car and started smoking weed with the gun in plain sight.
    The police told him numerous times to drop the gun.
    His wife was hollering "Keith, don't do it." You can hear it on her video.
    He got shot.

    His gun and holster were found on the ground near his feet. The gun had only his finger prints on it.

    Enough said.

    Whether a police shooting was justified depends entirely on the circumstances of the shooting and not on the run-ins with the law of the person shot that the shooting officers din't know about at the time of the shooting. While these prior run-ins may explain the behavior of the person shot, they do not explain the behavior of the person doing the shooting.

    Your post is mixing the evidence from the scene that relates to the circumstances of the shooting with the classical smear campaign stuff that Bob Owens from Bearing Arms regularly does, also known as, he had it coming.

    The evidence is pointing toward that the shooting was justified, given the current "comply or die" laws. LEOs far too often put themselves into a situation where they have no other option than to shoot as directed by SOP.

    You for get in this modern day police have computers in their car and can pull up the records of criminal offenders. He had a record of violence against police in the past, and the protection order his wife had earlier shows he had a gun.

    But not all..... In addition

    He was a felon
    He was in possession of a stolen gun

    The officers did no such thing in this case. They didn't know that they were approaching a convicted felon who was prohibited from possessing a firearm. Stop making things up to fit your agenda.

    Scott's history is only relevant in trying to sort out what happened after the fact. His criminal history shows that he is a violent man and has shot at police in the past. When trying to decide which side you want to believe, this information is relevant. You can believe his mother who said he was just reading the koran or you can believe the police version. His past violent crimes lends credence to the police version. It is likely that the police did not know of his criminal past at the time they confronted Scott. What mattered is what Scott did or did not do when the police confronted him. They were justified. Period. End of story.

    The pro-Scott forces seem as shady and mendacious as the North Miami cops in the shooting of Charles Kinsey.

    Their stories have changed so much, they ought to get jobs with the FOP.

  9. Police that see a violation and look the other way are considered cowards. So to say Cops put themselves in positions were they have no choice but kill someone is just foolish. How about stop breaking the law and when caught fighting the Cops. Everytime someone steals, someone else pays. How about stop thinking that society owes you something that you have not earned. It is time to stop allowing bullies from running our neighborhoods and take responsibility for for your actions follow the rules that keep our children safe. Life is not a party, the things that we do or don't do have consciences.

    How about stop posting about topics that you have no clue about. LEOs these days have little training and a bully attitude, leading them to make stupid decisions, such as driving up to a suspect in a way that their only option is to shoot him, or using a firearm as a "compliance device" leaving them no other option than to shoot upon perceived (not actual) non-compliance, or shooting a person that is not an imminent threat, or just shooting the wrong person.

    The rest of your post is just the usual "he had it coming" BS. Not all police shootings are justified, unless you want the bullies in uniform running your neighborhood. The Keith Lamont Scott shooting seems to be justified. The Charles Kinsey shooting was clearly not, neither was the Philando Castile shooting.

    Far be it for me to say I told you so, but I told you so, way back when this happened.
