UPDATE: A new update added in my commentary section showing the size of the little Mustang (concealed easily by an average hand).

Scott’s wife filed for a restraining order against him last October, saying he was armed, violent and had threatened to kill her. She wrote: ‘He carries a 9mm black’ and said he had hit her and a child. Scott, 43, was shot and killed Tuesday after a confrontation with Charlotte, North Carolina police.
Keith Scott was carrying a stolen gun when he was shot and killed during a confrontation with police in Charlotte, North Carolina, authorities have said.
The gun was reported stolen after a breaking and entering, according to the police.
A breaking and entering suspect told agents at the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives that he had sold the gun to Scott, ABC 11 reported Monday. He is now in custody.
Scott’s wife Rakeyia, who filmed her husband’s killing on Tuesday, had filed for a restraining order against him and had told authorities he carried a gun, hit her as well as one of her children and had threatened to kill her, records have shown.
Rakeyia detailed her husband’s behavior in the filing in October last year. She said he had hit her and one of her children.
‘He hit my 8 year old in the head a total of three times with is [sic] fist,’ she wrote on the form published by TWC News.
‘He kicked me and threaten [sic] to kill us last night with his gun. He said he is a “killer” and we should know that.’
The form asked whether there was any reason that law enforcement should consider the defendant a potential threat. Possible reasons included carrying concealed weapons while drinking alcohol and having threatened an officer.
Rakeyia ticked ‘yes’ and specified: ‘He carries a 9mm black.’
She dismissed the protective order against Scott voluntarily on October 16, 11 days after filing it. The couple had seven children.
His friend Toccaro Harris said: ‘It doesn’t mean that he was bad. It doesn’t mean that he had a right to get his life [taken].’
Scott, 43, had served more than eight years in Texas for evading arrest and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to TWC News.
He shot a man whom he believed was making threats against his family, according to his attorney.
Scott had also been convicted for assault with a deadly weapon and DWI in North Carolina.
Police on Saturday released bits of footage of Scott’s killing. Protesters have demanded they release the whole tapes.
None of the videos released so far show Scott raising a weapon or aiming it at the officers.
Scott instead can be seen walking backwards out of his car with his hands at his side before four shots hit him.
Officers can be heard in the video filmed by Scott’s wife shouting: ‘Drop the gun.’ But the dashcam footage released by the policies doesn’t make it clear whether or not Scott had a gun in his hand.
Charlotte police say they saw marijuana and a gun inside Scott’s car before the shooting.
They released photos of the gun they said Scott had in his possession, as well as pictures of an ankle holster and a joint containing marijuana.
Scott’s family said during a press conference following the release of the video that none of the videos prove that Scott was holding a gun at the time of the shooting.
‘Unfortunately we are left with far more questions than we have answers,’ his brother-in-law Ray Dotch said after seeing the police footage ‘
‘We shouldn’t have to humanize him for him to be treated fairly. He’s an American citizen who deserved better.
‘It does not make sense to us how this incident resulted in the loss of life.’
He asked why the police didn’t listen to Scott’s wife, who said he had a traumatic brain injury.
Justin Bamberg, the family’s lawyer, also said: ‘The dash cam or the body cam, you can’t clearly identify what, if anything, is in his hand, and that has not changed.’
Scott’s family believe Charlotte police might need better training policies on how to deescalate situations like the one that led to Scott’s shooting.
Hundreds of protesters have walked on Charlotte’s streets since Scott’s shooting.
The midnight curfew in Charlotte has finally been lifted after nearly a week of armed patrols following the chaos that broke out when Scott was shot dead by police.
The city was placed in a state of emergency after the shooting sparked widespread protests that turned violent and left more than a dozen officers injured last week.
The National Guard was called in to patrol the streets after demonstrators smashed windows, blocked part of an interstate through downtown, and burned the contents of a tractor-trailer in the first two nights of protest.
AN UPDATE: After publishing this, I realized that most readers would not be aware of the small size of the little Mustang carried by Keith Scott. Since the videos didn’t appear to show him with a gun in his hand, it would be easy to assume that he was unarmed. But that little Mustang can be hidden behind an average hand and I wanted to post a picture showing how easy it would be to assume that Scott was unarmed – even though the police kept ordering him to put the gun down. The one pictured is a nice new one while Scott’s was an older one, but still the size is the same.
The FACTS that are now coming out about Keith Scott’s shooting vividly illustrate the difference between the black agitator’s favored narrative (the one that’ll be fed to the media) and what really happened.
The narrative, constructed by black racist agitators (like BLM), is specifically designed to support protestations and riots and to call into question the police actions leading to the shooting. They immediately descend on a police shooting of a black person, stage their troops (the paid professionals have been bused in) and incite the crowd to protest – which if not controlled, will become violent riots. That serves their purpose. You may recall that an initial narrative being spread through the community was Scott he was quietly sitting in his car reading a book when murdered by police. Incidentally, no book was found.
The FACTS being released now show that Scott’s own wife filed a restraining order against him indicating that he threatened to kill her and was known to be carrying a “9mm black.” Now, I don’t know what a “9mm black” is – that could be her generic term for a handgun, or maybe she was alluding to a “9mm Glock,” which seems to be a weapon favored in the rap world. Nevertheless, he was carrying a .380 Colt Mustang in an ankle holster. As a convicted felon, Mr. Scott was prohibited from having a handgun. Testimony shows that the gun found by his body was bought from a thief who stole it during a burglary. Scott’s fingerprints and DNA were found on the Colt and the ankle holster can be seen on his right ankle.
His past history also showed that he’d been indicted on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in Texas and served eight years for it. Scott had also been convicted for assault with a deadly weapon and DWI in North Carolina. Mr. Scott was no choir boy.
I wonder how long it’ll be before Keith Lamont Scott’s name joins Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin’s in the annals of black icons of peace and love that were murdered without cause by racist police?
