Charlotte, NC cops allege Keith Scott had a gun. An eyewitness, Taheshia Williams, refutes their claim.
Either way, it’s likely that Scott needn’t have died.
Let’s cut through last week’s yellow crime scene tape.
Scott’s wife, Rakeyia, had vocally informed these officers about her husband’s Traumatic Brain Injury.
At that point, reasonable cops would’ve realized this was likely why Scott wasn’t responding to their commands… ergo, it was time to retreat and regroup.
While everyone’s adrenaline ebbed, Rakeyia could’ve made her impassioned pleas… beseeched her husband to obey the cops… perhaps resulting in an outcome everyone could’ve lived with.
