Unfortunately the precedent is ESTABLISHED...

EVERY time a black is shot by cops... there will be riots.

Facts dont matter. Videos just make it worse. Even Trump can not just STFU and let an investigation/trial reveal ALL evidence.

And of course even if there ever is a case where cops make a mistake..... it is STILL not an excuse to riot.

GOOD! CMPD tweeted a link to their Facebook page and it was this.

September 27, 2016

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police detectives today charged one suspect with assaulting a man in the Epicentre parking lot during Wednesday’s unrest. The suspect was already in jail on looting-related charges.

The incident occurred sometime around 10 p.m. on the 4th Street side of the Epicentre deck. The victim did not initially report the crime, but detectives began investigating after obtaining a video showing the assault.

The video begins with the victim, a white male with light-colored pants and short brown hair, on one knee at what appears to be the entrance of the deck. Approximately 10 men chase him, hit him, kick him and pull off his pants.

In connection with the assault, Antonio Gatewood (DOB: 11/12/1993) is charged with common law robbery, assault inflicting serious bodily injury, false imprisonment and ethnic intimidation.

EXCLUSIVE: Keith Scott's family's attorney reveals new details in police shooting
By Billie Jean Shaw | WECT.com | Updated Friday, October 14, 2016


COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - New details have emerged in the deadly police shooting of Keith Scott in Charlotte.

Attorneys representing the family have released results from an independent autopsy. The autopsy was performed in Newberry 10 days after the shooting.

In a WIS Exclusive interview, Billie Jean Shaw sat down with the Scott family’s attorney, Justin Bamberg, who said the results of the autopsy showed that Scott was shot three times - shining more light on what happened in that 3-minute encounter between Scott and the police.

"He was shot in the left wrist. He was shot once in the left abdomen, which would had rendered him paralyzed from that point down where he hit the ground immediately. What we believe that the first shot was actually the shot to the back and that shot was actually a fatal shot,” Bamberg said.

"What do you take away from that?" Shaw asked.

"When you look at what occurred there were problems with their tactical approach. There were problems with their directives. You know everybody talks about them saying 'drop the gun' approximately 12 times, well the bulk of that is while he was sitting inside of his vehicle," Bamberg responded.

"It took CMPD several days to release the full footage after Mrs. Scott released cell phone video. What in that video stands out to you?" Shaw asked.

"The fact is when Keith Scott was shot his hands were down, when he falls to the pavement we have a clear view of the area surrounding his body and you don't see anything on the ground near him at any point in time. They're rolling him over, they're grabbing their hands. You don’t see any officers pass a firearm in the video," Bamberg said.

Spoiler:
Bamberg goes on to say his hopes are that the family can reach an agreement with the Charlotte-Mecklenberg Police Department, avoiding a trial.

Keith Scott shooting: no charges to be filed against Charlotte police officer

Officer Brentley Vinson, who killed the 43-year-old black man in North Carolina in September, deemed by district attorney to have ‘acted lawfully’

Jon Swaine in New York
Wednesday 30 November 2016 16.42 GMT

No state criminal charges will be brought against the police officer who fatally shot Keith Scott in North Carolina earlier this year, prosecutors announced on Wednesday.

Andrew Murray, the district attorney in Charlotte, said that officer Brentley Vinson’s shooting of Scott in September was justified because Scott refused to drop a gun held at his side.

“It is my opinion that officer Vinson acted lawfully when he shot Mr Scott,” Murray said at a press conference. “He acted lawfully.”

Borum was indicted on a charge of first-degree murder on October 5, 2016.
No future court dates found. I'll update when the trial starts. :Q26

Prosecutors announce death penalty decision in fatal shooting during uptown protest
By Michael Gordon | The Charlotte Observer | October 27, 2016


Prosecutors announced Thursday that they will not seek the death penalty against Rayquan Borum, the Charlotte man accused of shooting Justin Carr during a September demonstration protesting police violence.

Carr was fatally wounded on Sept. 21 outside the Omni Hotel on East Trade Street. He was amid a throng of people denouncing the police shooting that killed Keith Lamont Scott the day before.

Borum, 21, was arrested two days later and charged with Carr’s death. Prosecutors have said he has admitted to the crime, but few details have been released.

He also faces an array of looting-related charges. The District Attorney’s Office says Borum was caught by surveillance camera less than an hour after the Carr shooting helping loot the nearby Kandy Bar in the Epicentre entertainment venue. Prosecutors say Borum was among a group that smashed their way into the night spot, and that he can be seen in footage climbing over the club’s bar and grabbing liquor.

While he will not face the death penalty, Borum’s first-degree murder charges carries a mandatory life in prison without parole if he is convicted.

Charlotte man pleads guilty to beating that went viral during Keith Lamont Scott protests
By Michael Gordon | The Charlotte Observer | February 27, 2017


A Charlotte man has begun serving a six-month jail sentence in connection with a brutal beating in an uptown parking garage that was captured on video during the violent aftermath to a police shooting last fall.

Antonio Gatewood pleaded guilty last week to felony conspiracy to commit assault inflicting serious bodily injury, stemming from the Sept. 21 attack by 10 men on a man in the Epicentre garage at 210 E. Trade St. The incident took place during two nights of protests and violence that followed the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott the day before.
[...]
Gatewood, who according to jail records has at least eight previous arrests, was sentenced to 12-24 months in prison. That punishment was suspended pending his successful completion of 30 months of supervised probation. Gatewood must serve 180 days in jail and pay more than $3,100 in restitution.

Attorney: Man accused of murder during uptown protest had no intention to kill
By Blake Hanson | WSOCtv.com | Mar 24, 2017


CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Rayquan Borum appeared Thursday in court after spending months in jail.

Borum is awaiting trial for the murder of Justin Carr during last fall's riots in uptown.

Terry Sherrill, Borum’s defense attorney, admitted that his client fired the gun, but argued that it wasn’t intentional or with any malice, and that Borum was surprised after he pulled the trigger.

“He regrets it, we regret it and the gun went off while he was there," Sherrill said

Assistant District Attorney Clayton Jones said traffic cameras were used at College and Trade Street, and that Borum told police that he disassembled the gun and got rid of it on Independence Boulevard while fleeing the scene.

Prosecutors described the video evidence as images of Borum showing and raising the gun, the flash of the muzzle and him leaving the scene.

“He shot willfully and killed somebody,” said Jones. “The state is going to be able to prove he intended to kill somebody.”

Judge Robert Bell refused to set a bond.

Before court was adjourned. Bell asked deputies to handcuff one of Borum's supporters. saying that he “acted up in court and glared at the judge.”

“It was a look that can only be described as looking in an intimidating manner,” said Bell.

Plea deal offered in slaying that inflamed uptown Charlotte Protests
By AP | Tribune News Service | July 19, 2017


CHARLOTTE — Rayquan Borum, accused of a fatal shooting that further inflamed the uptown demonstrations in September, is considering an offer from prosecutors to plead guilty to second-degree murder and avoid a potential life behind bars, his attorney says.

Police say Borum has confessed to the shooting. His attorney, Terry Sherrill, described the death as a “terrible accident” on Wednesday.

Some community activists continue to argue that Carr died from a rubber bullet fired by police outside the Omni hotel. Police say no rubber bullets were used that night, and forensic experts contacted by the Charlotte Observer say a rubber projectile would not have caused the fatal damage to Carr’s skull and brain.

Now, according to Sherrill, Borum must decide before his Aug. 17 arraignment whether to accept an offer from Assistant District Attorney Clayton Jones to plead guilty to second-degree murder and avoid a trial. If convicted of first-degree murder, Borum would serve a mandatory life sentence without parole.

According to Sherrill, Jones’ plea offer comes with a “substantial” prison sentence for Borum. He said the facts of the case point toward the lesser charge of manslaughter.

“But that offer hasn’t been made, and I have been given no indication that will be made,” Sherrill said. “(Jones) told me that they have offered the best he feels he can do, maybe even the best he’s willing to do.”

Borum, he said, “has not made up his mind” about the offer. “But there are some things we need to see together ... that may help him get close to a decision.”

Accused shooter pleads not guilty to killing during uptown riots
By Michael Gordan | The Charlotte Observer | August 17, 2017


Rayquan Borum pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder Thursday, setting the stage for a trial that will play out against the backdrop of a controversial police shooting last September and the riots that followed.

Borum, 22, is accused of the Sept. 21 killing of Justin Carr, which occurred during the outbreak of violence that erupted after the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott the day before.

Police say Borum has confessed to the shooting. Last month, Borum’s attorney, Terry Sherrill, described Carr’s death as a “terrible accident.”

In entering his plea, Borum rejected an offer from Assistant District Attorney Clayton Jones that Borum plead guilty to second-degree murder and a related charge, and serve what Sherrill said was a 16-year prison sentence.

If convicted of first-degree murder, Borum faces mandatory life in prison without parole.
