Charlotte has been swept by protests starting Tuesday night following the fatal shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, a 43-year old African-American man, by a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer. The police claimed Scott had a weapon, but his family denies he was armed.
The decision to make police video footage public came after vehement demands by protesters to do so.
