WATCH: Keith Lamont Scott’s Brother Calls All White People ‘Devils’

A man described as the brother of Keith Lamont Scott called all white people “f–cking devils” in an emotional video interview captured after Scott was shot and killed by a Charlotte, North Carolina police officer.

Watch the video above. (Warning: Graphic language).

In it, he says, before angrily walking away from reporters: “I just know that all white people are f-cking devils.” Then he adds, “All white cops are f-cking devils, and white people.”

The shooting has sparked growing and violent riots and led to a state of emergency in Charlotte. However, Scott was shot and killed by an African-American police officer, Brentley Vinson, who works for a force run by a black chief. A WSOC-TV reporter said on Twitter that Vinson is the son of one of the first black detectives on the Charlotte police force.

The man did not stop with the devils comment; he is captured in other video interviews making claims about the shooting. WCNC-TV said he identified himself to an NBC reporter as Scott’s brother.

WCNC-TV Charlotte anchor/reporter Tanya Mendis was one of the journalists conducting interviews with him:

He said in the second interview: “He was waiting on his son to get from school… ” He said the police officer was not wearing a uniform and said he “just jumped out. And yelled gun and shot at him.”

The chief has verified that Vinson was wearing plainclothes. However, he said Wednesday that officers gave “loud, clear verbal commands which were also heard by many of the witnesses” to Scott to drop the weapon but, according to The Huffington Post, Scott “had re-entered his vehicle and exited again still holding the gun.”

According to the Associated Press, the police chief says videos of the incident do not definitively show Scott point the gun, however, and the police will share the videos with the family.

The Tuesday outrage – which led to the injuries of at least 16 officers, one by a rock – was fueled, in part, by a dramatic and expletive-laden video that Scott’s daughter, Lyric, streamed on Facebook Live immediately after the shooting, in which she claimed police shot her father because he was black.

The riots continued on Wednesday night and culminated in businesses smashed, people assaulted, four more officers injured, and a demonstrator shot in the head. As of 12:15 a.m. Thursday, the riots were still in full gear, although the situation calmed somewhat on Thursday night.

The Charlotte unrest came after outrage was already growing over the Tulsa, Oklahoma shooting death of Terence Crutcher. On Thursday September 22, the DA in Tulsa announced he was filing criminal manslaughter charges against Police Officer Betty Shelby. You can read those charging details here.

In Tulsa, though, no riots resulted. Charlotte, however, saw two days of growing violence on the streets. In one incident, a man was attacked in a Charlotte parking garage in what people on social media characterized as a racial attack, saying the man was white. You can watch that video here.

The police chief, Kerr Putney, pushed back hard at social media narratives that said Scott, a father of seven, was unarmed and holding a book when he was shot and killed on Tuesday. Putney said on Wednesday that Scott was armed with a gun and had refused commands to drop it; the chief added that police found the gun at the scene, but never found a book, said CNN. Scott’s family says he was disabled from a head injury due to a bicycle accident, said reporter Tanya Mendis.

“It’s time to change the narrative because I can tell you from the facts that the story’s a little bit different as to how it’s been portrayed so far, especially through social media,” said Putney, according to CNN.

A WBTV reporter released what she said was a picture from a police source of the gun recovered at the scene:

Another local reporter also received a similar photo:

The officer who shot and killed Scott, Brentley Vinson, is a former college football player who has been on the Charlotte force since 2014, according to WSOC-TV. His father, Alex, is a retired police officer, according to The Charlotte Observer.

The violence on Wednesday night exploded into the near fatal shooting that left a demonstrator clinging to life. The demonstrator who was critically injured by another demonstrator on Wednesday night is on life support, according to the City of Charlotte Twitter page. The shot man, identified as Justin Carr, has now died.

Police said in a statement released to the news media on Tuesday that they had gone to an apartment complex to serve a search warrant against someone else. There, they said that a confrontation ensued with an armed Scott, who was a father of seven and was, according to family, disabled. A police statement released to the news media says that officers from the Metro Division Crime Reduction Unit were searching for a suspect with an outstanding warrant on him at the Village at College Downs when they observed a person, Scott, inside a vehicle in the apartment complex.

“The subject exited the vehicle armed with a firearm,” the statement says. “Officers observed the subject get back into the vehicle at which time they began to approach the subject. The subject got back out of the vehicle armed with a firearm and posed an imminent deadly threat to the officers who subsequently fired their weapon.”

  1. “In it, he says, before angrily walking away from reporters: “I just know that all white people are f-cking devils.” Then he adds, “All white cops are f-cking devils, and white people.””

    Oh, well it’s a good thing that his brother was shot by a BLACK cop then! Idiot.

    • They don’t care.. They are still blaming “white devils” despite the fact that no white people even fired a single shot.. Blacks want a race war, it’s clear by now.. The media loves this stuff. They would LOVE to cover the race war (which whites would dominate) The problem is these black people really don’t care about this. They just want to loot and do something because they are so bored. In fact I bet they are secretly happy this happened so they have any excuse to get to call whites “white devils” and get free money and merchandise by looting…We do need a race war though, I think it’s come to that now. Even know personally I could care less about skin color I don’t think these animals care. So White people must stand together and get ready to fight I guess….By the way, I’m not a big fan of cops myself…But like I said black people HATE white people. They are attcking whites every day and it’s NEVER on the news…

  2. These people that think the answer to any perceived injustice is to riot is a huge problem. If they think they are winning any support they are sadly mistaken. All they have done so far is turn most people against them. I have no sympathy for them or their misguided cause.

  3. His brother sounds like a darned racist.
    Seems like most of the involved parties were black.

    That with the fact that his brother, a convicted felon, was in possession of a semi automatic pistol. That is illegal.
    He disobeyed an order from the police to drop his weapon. That is stupid.
    The officer who shot him was black.

    So, why is his brother mad at whites?

    Habit?

    The odd thing is this is black on black. Why is black lives matter getting into this? Does that mean that black lives matter when it is black on black too?
    If that is the case, why aren’t they in Chicago rioting about all the black folks killed by other black folks.

    Or is it just that they are hypocritical reparationists who want something for nothing because their ancestors were brought to this country as slaves?

    What a bunch of hypocrites. The world doesn’t owe you a living, dumb a$$, and neither do I.

  4. So the guy’s brother is shot by a black police officer, yet somehow the white man is to blame. Uh huh, just goes to show, they don’t care who shot who, as long as it promotes the Black Lives Matter mantra.

    • A cop tells you to get out of your car lay the weapon down, dont be an entitled bastard and disobey, Thats is why you are shot, So looting yes but lets go uptown where the store are better and have better quality cause after all stealing isnt a crime it isnt a commandment. look I got me a new 60 flat screen cause some idiot was a moron and hand a gun. So if all white ppl are devi
      ls are all blacks thugs and rioters huh are they.

  5. Black cop kills armed black man. Yep, “WHITE DEVILS” for sure. The man is absolutely right. There is a HUGE racism problem in the US.

  6. I really feel for this young police officer. Can you imagine that. A young black-man, serving the community, earning a living and doing his job. Has to use deadly force in the course of doing that job and his city is torn to pieces by people of color. Damn shame. Seems the current thinking in the black community is thugs rule, who needs school.

  7. They are as dumb as they sound. Yep, he was carrying a book that looked like a gun. Hey you bunch of liberal gun haters. What law was this felon breaking? Yep, didn’t help did it…criminals don’t care about you stupid laws!!!

  8. These muttha fuqers shops suck my Dix every month for the check I mail to them on the 1st.

    Shut the Fuq up bltches…get a muttha during job

    • Oh please. Stop your PC whining. Your life is in the top 0.0001 percentile in the history of human existence and you’re whining about it. You didn’t mail shot to anyone. You share a few dollars with poor and old people and MANY dollars bailing out banks and douchebags like silver-spoon Donald. Dix is a garbage supermarket, btw. I suggest you pull up yr straps and get a better job. Might not be possible with your poor life decisions, but try anyway.

  9. Black racism is a reality and coincides with lack of understanding of the rule of law. Treat anarchists like enemy combatants. Without facts they ignore the law regarding felons to not possess guns, obeying commands of officers. They are in denial that obeying arrest procedures is safer than walking in a black neighborhood, minding their own business. Police Chief is black, officer is black and white people are devils…these people are morons.

  10. Why don’t you animals act humans and avoid getting shot. You bring this crap on yourselves. Just act civilized and you won’t get shot.

  11. Sorry but, if you don’t know what the police means when they say drop the gun or what ever you’re holding, you have a problem. The problem is you are to stupid to live in a free society. You belong in jail.

  12. Let’s get the inevitable over with. Surrender and get a free trip and $50,000 to permanently relocate to Africa. Remain and surrender as a prisoner of war and enter a work camp for life. Chose to fight and all combatants will be destroyed; no prisoners.

    Life in the USA can not go on as it has.

    • Listen buster, I’m a hard conservative, older white woman, and even I think you and people like you are the REAL problem. Check your mouth and get right with God. You are going to have some explaining to do to the big man upstairs for that comment loser.

    • When are all of you ignorant people, black and white, going to realize that WE ARE ALL BEING PLAYED HERE. Can’t any of you see that the government and media are turning all of us against each other for some reason yet to be disclosed. Why do you fall for it? To the blacks out there, more than twice as many whites have been killed by police this year alone. It just doesn’t make the news. Ever wonder why? To the whites out there. More than twice as many whites have been killed by police than blacks, and it doesn’t make the news. Ever wonder why? WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!

  13. Whites can easily renew their godhood by refusing to allow the most backward and ignorant American demographic to quit surviving off their dime

  14. Let’s see, Democrats have been in charge of Charlotte for decades, there’s a Black mayor, a Black police chief, a Black officer that shot and killed this bum…. but White people are the devils responsible here…?

  15. OK, now I’m totally confused.

    A black man was shot by a black cop who is directed by a black police chief with the support of a black city council……… but it’s the “white devils” fault?

    Actually I believe a black cop is more likely to shoot a black perp because they KNOW how the black perp is going to act.

  16. How is Obama’s “hope and change” working out for everyone out there? You know, those of us who knew what an Obama presidency would do to race relations, (not to mention arming Iraq with nuclear weaponry) would do to this country. We warned you until we were blue in the face. Now, it’s here.

    • Surely you meant Iran, but yes good points – I knew this was going to be a catastrophe for the country, but that is progressive politics. They actually don’t see this as a problem but as a way to grab more power, so they can make things better for us.

  17. There’s an easy way to disperse these yard apes and the idiotic whites who support them….open up the fire hoses on them. That’ll cool them off. And if we’re lucky they’ll be flushed into the sewer where they belong.

  18. I am so sick of the African community putting all the blame on white America. As someone already said the idiot claims all white people and police are Devils. The cop who shot was black, the chief black and the mayor black. Hey BLACK America stop committing crimes and putting cops in the position to defend themselves. None of you or anyone you know was a slave. You have a black President and I know your all mad that you didn’t get your repremation checks you were expecting. Stop being thugs get an education which by the way is free for you and make something of your life and stop blaming everyone for your place in life. It’s called self responsibility. Lastly if black lives matter so much how about the 500 murders in Chicago already this year which 87% was black on black. Get mad or passionate about the statistics of the fact you as a race are going backwards and stop for once blaming whitey. You always have someone to blame but there are more blacks in control of America now than ever. It’s really sad that you can’t wake up and figure it out and that also goes out to the heroin meth white heads out there who continue down the same path. It’s funny how people are already blaming Trump, who is certifiable for things going on. The guy has never drink, drugs or even smoked a cigarette. Gratuated from top Universities and is a self made billionaire. Stop hating and start expanding and making something of yourselves. Blaming everyone and continuing the same life style is news flash not getting you anywhere. By the way not only White America but all the other races who get up work and contribute to society is tired of your crap. The Black Americans who are striving for more are tired of it as well. Wake the F up!!!

  19. So a black cop shoots the man who is armed, and the brother says white people are devils. Its ok for them to be racist, black man shoots black man and its white mans fault hmmm. Then they say he was not right in the head but he has a gun he carries, why is this?

  20. So a brain damaged armed father of seven refused multiple commands to drop his weapon. Obviously a case of police trying to do their jobs under impossible circumstances. The left has ignited an issue that may spin out of their control into a social conflagration. Do they really want a race war? What else could be their end game? When all the projects and ghettos are destroyed, will other citizens sit idly by while looters and rioters burn their homes and neighborhoods? The liberal left in their gated communes should not feel above the fray they are starting. When “without rule of law” arrives, it will be literally every man for himself. And the unprepared will feel the brunt.

  21. , Ace Ventura: [to Ouda] What does “equinsu ocha” mean?
    Ouda: “White devil”.
    Ace Ventura: Well, tell them I’m not.
    Ouda: I only met you. How do I know?
    Wachootoo Medicine Man: [to other Wachootoos] Equinsu ocha! Equinsu ocha!
    Ouda: He said…
    Ace Ventura: Let me guess. “White devil, white devil”?
    Ouda: Yes! You speak Wachootoo?
    Ace Ventura: Tell them what I’m saying. [faces the Wachootoos] I come in peace!
    Ouda: [in poorly-translated Wachootoo] White Devil say, “I will harm you.”
    [The Wachootoos look suspicous]
    Ace Ventura: [to Ouda] I couldn’t help but notice the “equinsu ocha” part. Did you just refer to me as “white devil”?
    Ouda: This how they know you.
    Ace Ventura: Leave that part out from now on! [to Wachootoos] I represent the princess!
    Ouda: [in poorly-translated Wachootoo] “I am a Princess.”
    [The Wachootoos look confused; one young man eyes Ace with interest]
    Ace Ventura: War is hell. The last thing we want… is a fight!
    Ouda: [in poorly-translated Wachootoo] “I want to fight, so go to hell.”
    [The Wachootoos roar in anger; the Chief speaks to Ace]
    Ouda: The chief said, “If you pass all Wachootoo tests, you do not die.”

  22. Well, there you go… all my fellow white folks; how does it feel? Black folks have been treated like this by whites for a very long time. No, not everyone… but racism is real and if you can’t feel that for our brown and black fellow humans, then you have your heads in the sand. Doesn’t matter that the cop who shot the gun that killed his brother is also black — that is a separate issue. And, it’s rare, in any case, that it is a black cop who does the shooting; in most of these cases it is, in fact, a white cop. We all better wake up soon!

  23. Let’s see, Democrats have been in charge of Charlotte for decades, there’s a Black mayor, a Black police chief, a Black officer that shot and killed this bum…. but White people are the devils responsible here…?
