The officer who shot and killed Keith Lamont Scott will not face any charges sadly. 15 prosecutors agreed that Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Officer Brentley Vinson had a reason to shoot Scott. He was shot and killed on September 20 in an apartment complex parking lot. In a video, his relatives screamed that he did not have a weapon. According to “all the credible evidence” Scott was actually armed.
A Texas resturant by the name of “Little Woodrows” is now catching tons of fire as they have been turning away customers with face or neck tattoos. The resturant has many locations such as in Dallas, Austin, Houston, San Antonio and Midland. All the locations ask that people with neck or face tattoos cover up in order to be let inside. People are now upset saying that the restaurant’s policy is discriminatory and unfair, which I agree.
Now this is crazy. Donald Trump will soon be able to send a mass text to the whole entire United States. The texts will be able to come through as Wireless Emergency Alerts (or WEAs). According to The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) WEAs are what we received when there are Amber Alerts, flash flood warnings, and more. They are sent out through cell towers. Sadly, we will not be able to look pass these alerts.

Wow, this is so shocking…said no one. Sadly, it has become the norm for cops to be able to kill minorities in cold blood and get away with it, and such is the case one again with Keith Lamont Scott’s murderer. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer Brentley Vinson fatally shot 43-year-old Scott outside of his home on September 20, after cops initially saw him rolling weed in his car, and later approached him because they saw he was armed. North Carolina is an open-carry state, however, so this was legal.
