Authorities in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, have decided not to charge the Charlotte police officer who shot and killed Keith Lamont Scott, 43, in September. The black man's death prompted several days of protests that at times turned violent.
In the midst of the tensions in Charlotte, North Carolina, following the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, the moment a man wearing a ‘Free Hugs’ T-shirt began hugging a row of riot police has been captured on video.
Keith Scott's family has released a video of police officers fatally shooting him that was recorded by his wife, who was talking to police from a distance. It was released to NBC News after law enforcement once again refused to release their footage.
