The people of Charlotte are acting out what Black folks across the nation are feeling, after Keith Lamont Scott was killed by police as he waited in his car for his child to get out of school. The city has been experiencing a time of unrest as those pissed off by yet another innocent Black man killed by police became a hashtag. This video captures a brick, seemingly thrown by an angry protestor, that hit a cop in, knocking him to the ground (around the 1:56 mark).
With little to no change between Ferguson and now, folks are running out of options for what they can do to get the point across that Black lives matter. Desperate, weary people, don’t want to march anymore, it seems. With little other recourse, a desperate may throw a brick at a police officer to get his/her point across.
