Not calling bs but do you honestly think officers just carry around a spare gun to throw off a scene? I am just trying to wrap my head around the logistics of this.


Some do, it's called a "throwaway", and can easily be carried in an ankle holster or a pocket, if the gun is small enough, like a Keltec or baby Beretta.

It's not obvious - the officers could have picked it up from close to him and thrown it away from the body.
It will become clearer once the body cam videos are released.

It's incredibly unwise for MSNBC to be speculating on this and adding more fuel to the fire.


Just out of interest, would an officer trained in firearms really throw a firearm onto a road? I've used plenty of firearms in my time but never knew anyone that thought it would be a safe thing to do....especially when you had colleagues or anyone for that matter stood around close by.

You can slow the video down on YouTube and cleary see somethinhg being tossed to the floor....but i just didn't know if this was a normal thing to do?

She's telling the police "Don't you shoot him" "Don't you do it" and finally "Don't do it!".


At first, before she tells him to get out of the vehicle to save the windows. She cared about the damn windows for gods sake. After that she is yelling at her husband not to do it.



That's what i got from it too.

For all the people that think it's a gun I have a question for you. Why would the cop shoot him if he didn't have a gun?

...Because it's happened, a lot?

Not sure where you are going with this.

Absolutely! Whether it's a "backup gun" or a "throwdown gun" you can be assured that officers carry a spare, unauthorized gun (i.e. not issued by the police department).

1st of all police are trained to immediately take control of the weapon and render it safe(ie clear the magazine and round out of the chamber) so no one else, like the lady filming' can come pick it up and use it. Secondly it appears to me that he is throwing probably a black latex glove on the ground and trying to put on another so he could check the guy out(vitals, search) without getting blood on him. This is completely irresponsible of MSNBC to be insinuating what they are. The media is trying to push this BS narrative of rampant racism that is not there. Black officer, black suspect, black police chief, black mayor. etc. etc.

You think that officer was putting gloves on to check the victims vital signs? LOL

standard practice in many police departments, is never touch a bleeding suspect/ victim with bare hands.
many won't even frisk without gloves on.

Maybe, but if you watch the video, two (white) officers are handling the body without gloves, it appears, while the black officer, supposedly the shooter, is putting on gloves. Why?

Also, as the Scott's wife approaches, seconds after the shooting, does the black officer still have his weapon in his hand? At what point does he holster it or bag it as evidence? We don't see him do anything like that.

That's a glove... to wear while in a bloody crime scene to prevent transfer of disease.

Conspiracy theory debunked. Skeptics win again.

The woman was yelling "DONT DO IT!!" and multiple officers were yelling "Put down the gun!"

What more proof do you want?

Well any officer acting in official capacity should not be able to carry anything not dept issued. And going forward any officer caught in possession of a weapon or even a pen not dept issued should be let go in my opinion. These are some of the things that need to change to put an end to that crap. Hell when I worked for a certain satellite company if we had an issue with a tech we would make them come in everyday and inventory his rig before his shift , seems somthing similar could be implemented before roll out in the police depts. Opens more jobs.

So you want to make using non-department issued pens a fireable offense because an officer dropped a glove at a crime scene?

Funny how Keith Scott's wife keep repeating "don't do it Keith" over and over and over and over again and yet some want to believe the false narrative that he didn't have a gun.

Willfully ignorant.
