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.
As Charlotte protests turned peaceful over the weekend, the mayor responded by lifting the curfew. But demonstrators were still out in full force, protesting outside an NFL game, which prompted the deployment of additional officers.
