After days of riots and looting and some mostly peaceful protests following the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott — a black man — in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) has released the dashcam and bodycam videos of the shooting. And while — as Charlotte officials had previously said — the videos do not conclusively show Scott pointing a gun at officers, the videos do seem to confirm the officers’ account of what happened Tuesday.
As violence and lawlessness reigned in Charlotte, North Carolina, in the wake of an officer-involved shooting of an armed black man earlier this week, the Black Lives Matter (BLM) crowd claimed that those committing mayhem and violence were “protesting” against racism. But is BLM responding to a real problem or simply using the shooting as another pretext for bringing about revolutionary changes via terror?

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz fought a long, bitter, and protracted battle for the Republican presidential nomination, but Cruz's endorsement, coupled with Trump's hearty acceptance, proves that nothing can do more to unite Republicans than the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency.
Although the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) has dashcam and bodycam videos of the officer-involved shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, CMPD Chief Putney has made the decision to show those videos only to the family and their lawyers so far, saying, “We release it when we believe it is a compelling reason, but I'm not going to jeopardize the investigation.” The wife of Scott, Rakeyia Scott, has made her mobile phone video available and has claimed that it proves the police officers killed her husband for no reason except that he was black. But does it?
What do you call people who use foreigners to win power? The hirers of mercenaries? In today’s political campaigns (a military term, interestingly), they’re called something else: statist public officials.

In the wake of a police-involved shooting of a black man Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina, angry mobs of vandals and looters have taken to the streets under the banner of Black Lives Matter (BLM). More than 20 police officers and many more civilians have been attacked and injured. Vehicles — including police cars, civilian cars, buses, and semi-trucks — have been damaged or destroyed. Stores have been damaged and looted. At least one civilian has been killed. All of this has been done in the name of “protesting” perceived “social injustice.”
After Charlotte, North Carolina, saw second night of violence and destruction in the aftermath of the fatal police shooting of a black man, it is becoming clear that this is a trend that will likely continue: While shouting that “black lives matter,” looters and rioters lay waste to portions of their own cities and attack others, police officers and white people in particular. This much is clear: While black lives, as do all lives, the lies of Black Lives Matter (BLM) have deadly and destructive consequences.
