Tragedy strikes the country once again due to a shooting recently in North Carolina. Like many shootings hitting the headlines right now, they’re about the controversy between police officers and civilians. It all began when Keith Lamont Scott was inside his car. There were two stories, one was considered a hoax and the other, the tragic truth. According to his family, Scott was outside reading a book in his car waiting to pick up his daughter from school. As for the officer’s story, he claimed that when Scott was told to exit the vehicle, he was armed. Although there was no sign of a book on the scene, officials stated that there was supposedly a weapon. After Scott was shot, the shocking moment was what was filmed. Scott’s daughter was standing there the whole time and was yelling that her father had been shot by the police, all while it was being publicly live streamed.

As the news of the shooting spread throughout the town, “Black Lives Matter” organizers have moved in to express understandable outrage. To further extend the tragedy, another man was killed during the rally while defending Mr. Scott.

    Wow… this is so sad. Truly tragic for the little girl watching her father getting shot in front of her.
