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?
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.

The federal government is steadily offering money to local police departments that is making them more beholden to the feds and is also helping to change the character of local law enforcement.
Author Heather Mac Donald has many, but not all, of the answers to the threat to our liberties posed by Black Lives Matter. To cure an illness, a proper diagnosis is required. She fails to provide that in her book.
Billionaire statist George Soros has been helping Obama and globalist forces to federalize control over American police forces under the guise of pushing “criminal justice reform,” hacked e-mails from his shadowy Open Society “philanthropic” empire revealed. From funneling tens of millions to radical activist groups and race-mongers to building what leaked documents refer to as a “national movement” to “reform” law-enforcement and working with the White House, Soros fingerprints can be found all over the growing anti-police chaos that has enveloped U.S. cities in recent years. The agenda is clear: federal cops.
