Nearly a week of recurring protests over the police killing of a black man in Charlotte, North Carolina, showed no signs of abating on Sunday after police released videos of the shooting that did not resolve the question of whether the victim had a gun. One sign read "Stop police brutality" and another showed a picture of a bloody handprint with the phrase #AMINEXT, a social media tag about the fear of becoming a victim of police.
Charlotte authorities have released footage of the deadly police shooting of a black man, but the images were inconclusive on the question of whether he was carrying a gun and peaceful protests soon resumed in the restive southern city. Protesters marched through downtown Charlotte to police headquarters late Saturday, carrying signs that said "BlackLives Matter" and "Hands Up. The fatal shooting Tuesday of Keith Lamont Scott, the latest in a string of police-involved killings of black men that have fueled outrage across America, ignited sometimes violent protests that left one man dead.
