CNN Selectively Edited the Charlotte Police Shooting Video

The media is constantly doing PR damage control for the violent Black Lives Matter movement.

The latest cover-up was committed by CNN, when the network selectively edited video footage from the Sept. 20 Charlotte police shooting to make it appear as if Keith Scott was unarmed.

Fox News reports:

“The editing was clearly intended to give viewers the impression that Scott wasn’t armed. By intentionally excluding information to promote the false narrative that the officer-involved shooting of Keith Scott was unjustified, CNN directly contributed towards inciting violence and destruction in the Charlotte riots,” Blue Lives Matter said in a statement. “Innocent citizens were hurt during the Charlotte riots, but editing like this also incites violence against police officers long after the riots are over.”

The video in question was taken by Scott’s widow, Rakeyia Scott. In it, she can be heard saying, “He has no weapon.” Video released by the police shows Scott, who police say was in his SUV rolling a joint, getting out of the vehicle and backing away from police as they crouched with their guns drawn. The grainy video does not clearly show whether Scott had a gun in his hand, but police say they recovered a stolen, loaded handgun at the scene and that Scott was wearing an ankle holster.

The full, unedited video includes a police officer shouting, “Gun. Gun. Drop the gun.”

As Rakeyia Scott pleads, “Don’t shoot him, don’t shoot him,” and “He didn’t do anything,” police continue to yell “drop the gun” or a similar phrase at least 12 times in 38 seconds.

When the truth doesn’t fit the progressive agenda, the liberal media simply changes the facts.

Luckily, watchdog groups are pulling the mainstream media’s lies into the sunlight and exposing them as the propaganda networks they truly are.
