Following a bid for transparency coming from all quarters in relation to the shooting of Keith Lamont Scoot in Charlotte, North Carolina, the police in that city released the footage they have from a dash camera and one body camera. Neither gives too much more detail, but does give another angle of the footage released by Keith Scott’s widow on Friday.
Judge for yourself.

Once again we hear pleas for Scott to put down the weapon, even if it is not clear from these videos that he had one. That does seem to back the police department’s version of events.
