Poll: Should Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police release the Keith Lamont Scott fatal shooting videos?
Keith Lamont Scott’s family and Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts want the videos of Tuesday’s fatal police shooting of Scott released for the public to view.
In spite of their wishes, police Chief Kerr Putney already said Thursday that he’s not going to release them. Putney said the investigation was soon going to be turned over to North Carolina’s State Bureau of Investigation.
“Transparency’s in the eye of the beholder. If you think we should display a victim’s worst day for public consumption, that is not the transparency I’m speaking of,” Putney said to CNN.
Attorney Justin Bamberg, representing Scott’s family, said the family thinks the videos are unclear, while investigators said Scott was “an obvious threat” to police officers.
