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.

You can see photos of that wounded demonstrator here. Warning: The photos are graphic.

A video captured the scene. Again, warning: It’s graphic.

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.”

The City of Charlotte has also released what it calls a facts sheet on the Scott shooting. You can access it here.

Show me the arrest record of the victim so I can decide for myself. If he was a peace-loving member of society there will not be one. If there is an extensive one then he most likely got what he was asking for. Show me!

Some black people will always feel that way, even if whites elect them to the most powerful post in the world

Why is it, when a WHITE, ASIAN OR HISPANIC person is shot and killed by a police officer there aren’t ANY; Protests? Mayhem? Riots? Looting? Murders? Arson?
Could it be because CIVILIZED people understand when someone has committed a crime, they deserve punishment? That the person shot and killed, Was more than likely GUILTY? AND they do not follow the NO SNITCH RULE and ACTUALLY WANT AND DESIRE LAW AND ORDER?
COULD THAT BE THE REASON?
I’m not saying all blacks or blacks in general aren’t civilized but why is it only blacks do all the above on a regular basis yet is seems 99% have proven to be guilty of a crime and more than likely resisted and/or other actions were warranted

The city is the most liberal cesspool in the State. The police chief is black. A black cop shoots a black guy that is holding a gun. And the response is to call all white people devils? Am I living is reality or is this really the matrix?

Talk about racism. I don’t know one white person that feels this same way about black people. Obama and Al Sharpton created this – both black men, by the way.

Perhaps it’s time to arrest and jail these people.
I say start giving them something to whine about…arrest, if on Govt. aid, cancel it.
If they are arrested a 2nd time, prison. I’m tired of Black people who are the bad actors blaming Whites for their own stupidity.
If they are in riot mode, begin shooting them.

Seeing people as “devils” depends upon what end of the color spectrum you view someone from, now isn’t it?

The only devils are blacks.
Own it, niqqers

A black officer killed him and these niqqers still blame whites. You will all be judged as false witnesses. Enjoy hell, monkeys, you’ve earned it

Did the brother know the policeman was black? Did the brother know his brother was armed with a gun and not a book?

Sorry my friend, but my ancestors arrived in Isle of Wight County, Virginia, from England via the Netherlands, in the 1620’s and due to their religious beliefs, which they shared with many other Puritians who arrived at the same time, refused to own anyone. And yes some of the family over many generations moved to North Carolina and still refused to own anyone.

Your all inclusive statement that ALL white people are devils is as absurd as someone saying all orange people are ignorant.

A great man once said: “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” Dr. Marytin Luther King, Jr.

The same goes here for me to my family came to Isle of Wight County in 1632 and were Quakers and they moved to North Carolina afterwards. Quite frankly I’m tired of being racially profiled by blacks.

Facts don’t matter to these animals. Most of them don’t care one bit about the man who was shot. This was simply an excuse to steal and hurt others. You can put a lot of the blame on Farrakhan, Sharpton, Jackson, and Obama. They have incited the black community to react immediately to any shootings before finding out the facts. Look at Ferguson, they are still shouting “hands up” when in fact it didn’t happen. They are still crying over Trayvon Martin when all evidence and facts point to his beating Zimmerman. Like I said, facts don’t matter.

At least the rioters had any choice of bathrooms that they wanted to destroy based on their gender identity.

Liberalism = perversion = corruption = Obama = Hillary = societal rot. Also = charlotte mayor.

So ALL white people are devils yet a black man was shot by a black cop with a black police chief and it is the white mans fault?

Stop trying to figure it out – it is EBONICS logic. Now, you can see why that race (as a whole) can not be civilized OR educated, they can only function with self-gratification and animalistic impulses.

“All white cops are f-n devils”? He genius. Your brother was shot by a black cop who told him to drop his gun. He didn’t. He died. Don’t be stupid and make the same mistake.
