I just watched the video that Keith Scott’s family released a short time ago. Despite it not showing all that much, the narration of his wife, Rakeyia Scott, is sure to stick in black minds. I’m not sure how she managed to do it, as I would have been screaming and crying and inconsolable. The footage itself is of course disturbing. I would think the police need to get out there and release whatever they have at this point.
Here’s the video, courtesy of The New York Times:
I’m hoping Charlotte doesn’t burn tonight, but despite this video having nothing of value except for the wife’s narration…I can imagine that narration being powerful evidence of police misconduct if you’r already predisposed to thinking it was their fault.
