Here are the FACTS I know.
I didn't see him with a gun.
I didn't see him with a holster.
I didn't see him act threatening.
I did see him get shot.
I grew up in Charlotte and have seen the police plant evidence before. I don't know if that happened this time.

I have just watched the video, and to be honest I now have doubts as to the veracity of what the police are saying. The following two pictures are from the video. The first one shows no gun on the floor, and the timing of the picture is 1:41; the 2nd picture timed at 1:46 shows the gun on the floor. Where did it come from?
Obviously, it was put there by a cop, as the deceased did not put it there. It is quite clear in both the video and the first image capture that there is no gun, yet one appears within a few seconds, and is clearly seen in the second image. The gun has been handled by a cop and discarded by the deceased's feet by a cop. Why was the gun not bagged and tagged as evidence, instead of being handled by a cop who then discards it on the floor next to the deceased.
As things stand, the video presents a problematic issue for the cops.
