The death of 43-year-old Keith Scott is the latest in a string of brutal police killings of black Americans. Authorities say Scott was armed with a handgun and refused officers’ orders to drop the weapon. But his family and a witness say that’s a lie. Police shootings of black citizens have escalated tensions between African-Americans and law enforcement across the country, and especially now in Charlotte, North Carolina, where the black community has taken to the streets to protest, calling for the prosecution of the officers involved. To analyze the situation and attempt to dissect the racial tensions in America, we speak with Rick Dunham from China’s Tsinghua University in Beijing, Thomas Ruskin, President of the CMP Protective and Investigative Group and a former Detective Investigator with the New York Police Department, and Brandon Andrews, former US senate staffer and director of Impact.
