    A law enforcement group is charging CNN edited video of the racially charged police shooting of a Charlotte, N.C., man to make officers look bad.

    Blue Lives Matter, an organization comprised of active or retired law enforcement officers, claims the cable news network edited video of the Sept. 20 fatal shooting of Keith Scott to cut out police ordering him to “drop the gun,” fueling claims Scott, a black man, was unarmed when he was shot by Officer Brentley Vinson. Although Vinson is black, the incident was the latest police shooting around the nation to spur violent protests and rioting.

    This combination of photos provided by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2016 shows an ankle holster, top, and gun which police say were in Keith Scott’s possession at the time he was fatally shot by police in Charlotte, N.C., on Sept. 20, 2016.

    "The editing was clearly intended to give viewers the impression that Scott wasn't armed.

    When the truth is racist, it must be edited.

    Unfortunately, they can save it. They screwed themselves and don't need CNN to make officers look bad. They handled that all by themselves. And the good cops need to stop covering for the bad ones unless they want to be grouped in with them.
