According to records from Bexar County, Texas, Keith Lamont Scott was convicted of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in July 2005 and sentenced to seven years in prison. In relation to that case, he was charged and found guilty of evading arrest. He was also charged with unlawfully carrying a weapon, reckless driving, and assaulting his wife, but these charges were later dismissed.Seven years in prison for assault iwth a deadly weapon. He was prohibited from owning, possessing, picking up a weapon. The police found his gun after he repeatedly ignored orders to "drop the gun" before they shot him.
Last year, his wife filed a restraining order against him, alleging that he was violent and a threat to her and his son. She knew that he had a gun, in violation of both state and federal law. What we're now learning is that he decided to wait at a bus stop, smoking marijuana while brandishing his gun when he came to the attention of police. Yeah, let's go over that again.
I sincerely wish Mr. Scott hadn’t smoked marijuana in public while brandishing a gun while waiting to pick his son up from the bus stop.Yeah, don't we all wish that Mr. Scott had not smoked dope while brandishing a gun. After causing all this turmoil, the Scott family should be charged with every law available on the books. Oh, look.
This was a justified shooting, and Mecklenburg County prosecutors should be investigating whether the Scott family committed any crimes during or after the shooting, as well as whether Rakeyia Scott is a fit parent for serially endangering her children.I concur. His wife is not a fit mother, and the county should take the kids. She's clearly not capable of understanding right from wong.
