Photo: Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officer Brentley Vinson Shot & Killed Scott After Scott Displayed A Gun
On Tuesday, the NAACP demanded justice after Keith Scott was killed by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officer.
The civil rights group wants immediate change from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police and city council. It is unknown what “change” they want and it is hard to understand how could they even know this early into the investigation.

All of this after we have video evidence of Scott with a gun and a long violent criminal history including shooting a man and being arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. A protective order was filed on him after he threatened his wife with a gun.
Meanwhile, the NAACP made an insulting and uneducated comment about African American Police Officers.
“Many black people who become police officers become blue, not black,” the organization said Tuesday. “In order for you to survive in a police department, you take on the police department’s ideology, ways of life, and culture.”
Instead of defending an ex-con that attacked a police officer and insulting minority police officers throughout this country that are making a difference in their community, the NAACP should commend Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officer Brentley Vinson.
Vinson, a 26 year old police officer, graduated from Liberty University and played football at the School. He ran a popular bible study group and was touted by his coaches as a man of integrity and character.
If only the NAACP could display the same integrity and encourage minorities to join law enforcement, all of us would be much better.
Sadly, their statements not only prove they are out of touch but they only care about divisiveness.
Law Officer is the only major law enforcement publication and website owned and operated by law enforcement. This unique facet makes Law Officer much more than just a publishing company but is a true advocate for the profession.
