CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police said that Keith Scott did have a loaded gun when Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Officer Brentley Vinson shot and killed him last week, and on Monday, sources told Channel 9 that that gun was stolen.
Police sources said someone else stole the gun during a home break-in and later sold it to Scott.
It’s not clear if police knew who they were confronting last week, or Scott’s history, or if that weighed into the decision to use deadly force.
But new documents do point to Scott’s extensive and violent past.
Channel 9 obtained a domestic violence protective order that Scott's wife took out on him last year.
The order, filed in Gaston County, said that Scott hit his child in the head with his fist, kicked his wife and threatened to kill them with his gun.
It also claimed that Scott told his family that "he's a killer and they should know that."
It went on to say that Scott has a 9 mm handgun that he did not have a permit for it and that he is a convicted felon.
The order was dismissed a month later when Scott's wife said he was no longer a threat to the family.
In the order, Scott's wife wrote that he had been incarcerated, so Channel 9 tracked down those records to Bexar County, Texas.
Documents show he served seven years in prison for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and a one-year, three-month sentence for evading arrests. Records show that both incidents happened in 2002, but his sentence didn’t start until 2005.
But a year before the prison sentence started, Scott came back in 2004 to Mecklenburg County.
Channel 9 uncovered another domestic violence protective order filed by his wife Rakeyia Scott. It claimed her husband stabbed her in the back, almost puncturing her lungs.
Those who knew Scott said he was a gentleman and a devoted father. They said his life was forever changed last November when he suffered a traumatic brain injury in a motorcycle crash in Charleston, South Carolina.
Jack Johnson has already spent £20,000 on surgery to look like his idol David Beckham and says he needs at least another £30,000 to achieve his goal. But without a job and getting by on benefits, Phillip questions if more surgery would really make him happier.
TOWN OF AMHERST (WIVB) — If anything, the 2016 presidential election has been divisive, for the candidates and for voters.
And so, when several Donald Trump campaign signs went missing from Charlie Tulumello’s front yard, he assumed it was just neighborhood kids playing a prank.
Never did he think the thief was a former administrator at a local college, and a PhD in his 60s.
After the thief struck twice, Tulumello decided to place a pair of trail cameras on trees in his front yard to catch any overnight action.
Three times, a man — and twice with his dog — walked onto Tulumello’s property and ripped a total of seven signs out of the ground.
“My wife was very uneasy at night,” Tulumello said. “And if you’ll notice, changed the camera around for the other angle, I put the special sign up there trying to warn these people. Didn’t work. This fella just kept coming.”
Tulumello tracked him down, quickly realizing he was his neighbor, living just a few blocks away. He then handed over all the evidence, including the videos, to Amherst police, who promptly made an arrest.
Dr. Norman Muir, the former vice president of academic affairs for Medaille College, was charged with petty larceny and trespassing. Muir’s LinkedIn page shows he was also the college’s undergraduate dean of academic affairs, the associate vice president for academic affairs at Keuka College near Ithaca and the assistant vice president for academic affairs at Bellarmine College near Louisville.
“I was aggravated, angry,” Tulumello said. “This person comes up on my property in the middle of the night. You don’t know what to think. I mean, these are stupid signs, but you’re coming onto my property in the middle of the night, stealing. That’s not right.”
Although Muir told police he currently works for a local college, he was replaced at Medaille in July, according to the college’s website.
Muir declined to appear on camera, but said last Thursday he stole the signs because “I was angry with Donald Trump and the way he ran his campaign.”
“I wish I wouldn’t have done,” Muir said. “It was stupid. I feel ashamed that I did it.”
Tulumello said the Erie County GOP has reached out to replace his Trump campaign signs.
New York (CNN) A New Jersey Transit train crashed at a station in Hoboken during Thursday morning's rush-hour commute, killing at least one person and injuring more than 100 others, some seriously, local officials said.
Images posted on social media showed severe structural damage at the terminal -- one of the busiest transit hubs in the New York metropolitan area -- and part of the roof appeared to have collapsed.
Guy Lives Streams himself at the El Cajon Black Lives Matter rally for the man shot by police on Tuesday. But in today's world, wearing a Trump hat at such an event will get you a serious beat down, if not killed. Welcome to Obama's America.
This is downright despicable.
Former Bears coach Mike Ditka has weighed in on the protests sparked by 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and he certainly did not hold back.
"I think it’s a problem, anybody who disrespects this country and the flag," Ditka said in a radio interview Friday. "If they don't like the country, they don't like our flag, get the hell out, that's what I think."
"I have no respect for Colin Kaepernick, he probably has no respect for me," the Hall of Fame coach continued. "That’s his choice. My choice is that I like this country. I respect our flag."
"And I don't see all the atrocities going on in this country that people say are going on," he added. "I see opportunities if people want to look for opportunities. Now, if they don't want to look for them, then you can find problems with anything."
Funny failures caught on camera.
PORTLAND, Ore. (KATU) - The After School Satan club is coming to an elementary school in Portland very soon.
It has parents of students at Sacramento Elementary School talking after the Parkrose School District allowed it, by law.
Parents dropping their kids off at Sacramento Elementary Wednesday morning were buzzing after finding out about the club.
"I just don't want my kids to be around it," parent Mary Jane Damatan said.
"Anything that has to do with a satanic environment just doesn't sound like a healthy environment," mom of three Alisa Sherman said.
Thomas Holt, who has a first grader at Sacramento, says parents "are going to see the word 'satanic' and go, 'Oh no, no thank you.'"
The new club, set to start later this fall, is called the After School Satan Club and is run by the Satanic Temple, a national organization.
Finn Rezz heads up the Satanic Temple's Portland chapter. He says they use satanism as a metaphor, basing it off of the literary interpretation where the devil is a rebel, questioning cultural norms and labels. Rezz says they are offering the polar opposite of the Good News Club, a non-denominational Christian club that meets weekly.
A 2001 Supreme Court ruling gives both groups the right to hold meetings at schools. Still, KATU learned some parents are banding together and will try to challenge the Parkrose School District on the matter.

For one pair of newly-weds, the professional photographs of their big day will have to compete with a selfie with one happy passer-by - Tom Hanks.
The Oscar-winning actor was out for a jog in Central Park, New York, on Saturday when he bumped into Elisabeth and Ryan who, resplendent in white gown and tuxedo, were having their wedding photos taken.
Hanks posted his photo of the moment on Twitter, sharing it with more than 12 million followers and offering "congrats and blessings" to the couple.
The image has 11,000 likes so far on the social media platform, plus more than 67,000 likes on Hanks's Instagram account, and more than 33,000 people are talking on Facebook about Meg Miller, the New York-based photographer responsible for the official wedding images.
A couple of good old boys in Maryland decided they would let some of the Black Lives Matters protesters in Hagerstown, Maryland know what they think of their protests. So, one followed the other’s truck, which was a diesel truck and they proceeded to spew black exhaust smoke across the entire group of protesters.
Check out the video below, which was originally uploaded by Aaron Gettel and then reposted by a protest supporter, Lawrence Marley Hester. Fast forward to the 1:20 mark.
While scenes of violence and rioting have taken place in places like Ferguson, Baltimore, New York and Charlotte, these guys found a way to respond in non-violent manner. I agree, it may not be a charitable way to do things and will probably do nothing but stir things up more, I did find it hilarious.
Apparently, what the truck driver engaged in is what is known as “Rollin’ Coal.” According to Fury.News:
If you tune the engine on a diesel truck a certain way to “trick the engine” into needing more fuel, the result when you hammer on the gas is a huge plume of black smoke that blasts out of the tailpipe of the truck.
Syed Abedin, the father of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma, outlined his view of Sharia law and how the Western world has turned Muslims “hostile” during a wide-ranging video interview that shines newfound light on the reclusive thinker’s world views, according to footage exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Abedin, a Muslim scholar who was tied to the Saudi Arabian government until his death in 1993, has remained somewhat of a mystery as the media turns its eye to his daughter Huma, a top Clinton campaign aide who recently announced her separation from husband Anthony Weiner following his multiple sex scandals.
Syed Abedin explained his views on the Muslim world and spread of Islam during a 1971 interview titled The World of Islam, which was first broadcast on Western Michigan University television.
Abedin said that Arab states must police the upholding of Sharia, or Islamic law, and explained why the majority of Muslims view Israel and the Western world in primarily “hostile” terms.
The video provides a window into the Abedin family’s ideology, which has been marred by accusations it is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Abedin, who was then a professor in the university’s college of general studies, said that Western intervention in the Arab world has sparked a backlash among many faithful Muslims.
“The response to the West has been of two kinds,” Abedin said. “By and large the response has taken more of a hostile form.”
“The first impulse of the average Muslim in the Islamic world is that this kind of borrowing [culturally] would be somehow an alien factor into our social fabric and thereby destroying the integrity of our ethos … the integrity of our culture,” he added.
In a separate discussion on the state’s role in a person’s life, Abedin said it is necessary to police the application of Sharia law.
“The state has to take over” as Muslim countries evolve, he argued. “The state is stepping in in many countries … where the state is now overseeing that human relationships are carried on on the basis of Islam. The state also under Islam has a right to interfere in some of these rights given to the individual by the Sharia.”

Listen as this Denmark woman actually cries because Muslim migrants are being sprayed with "Refugee Spray" which is actually just water, but the point is they're not welcome there. This libtard actually defends the rapists entering her nation.
This is the moment a little boy learns that taking on an animal three times your size can get you really hurt. The little boy in the footage swiping at a cow's back legs as it stood in a yard lazily swiping its tale. The toddler, captured on camera in India, is clearly playing as he waves what looks like a piece of cloth across the cow's rear legs. His father watching on, the little one stands still for a second before going back into the danger zone. But this time, the cow's response is one of irritation - and it unleashes a shocking kick which sends the tot backwards through the air like a ragdoll. The worried dad instantly picks up the little one and cuddles him, seeing if he's alright. The footage was taken in an unknown location on February 22, but there's no word if the child sustained any serious injuries.
That ain't no rollercoaster...
Just one of the tall tales of Islam and their leader who was apparently hitting that Afghan Opium a little too hard.
