NC Governor calls out National Guard as Charlotte police shooting protests continue

by ELY PORTILLO, JOE MARUSAK AND KATHERINE PERALTA | The News & Observer  |  published on September 22, 2016

CHARLOTTE, N.C. | Protests turned violent for a second night in Charlotte after Tuesday’s fatal police shooting of a black man. Late Wednesday, Gov. Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency for the city and deployed the National Guard and State Highway Patrol troopers to assist local police.

One person was shot at the protest and was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, Medic said. The city initially reported that he died, but later retracted that, saying he was on life-support.

Medic said on Twitter that it was treating the patient for a gunshot wound en route to Carolinas Medical Center at about 8:45 p.m.

The person was shot in the area of North College and East Trade streets.

Medic said it was responding to “multiple incidents uptown related to the situation in the College Street area” but was no more specific.

    Arrest George Soros and MoveOn .org directors for sedition and inciting riots. Imprison Soros for 300 years and deport his rotting body back to Hungary.

    Ilya Sheyman, a failed Illinois contender for Congress and the executive director of MoveOn.org Political Action, has taken credit for the violence at a cancelled Trump event last night in Chicago. He promised similar violence and disruption will occur at future Trump political events leading up to the election.

    Hired Black Lives Matter protesters start #CutTheCheck after being stiffed by ACORN successor group

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/may/19/hired-black-lives-matter-protesters-start-cutthech/

    By Jessica Chasmar – The Washington Times – Tuesday, May 19, 2015

    Hired protesters with the Black Lives Matter movement have started a #CutTheCheck hashtag and held a sit-in at the offices for the successor group to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) in Missouri after the group allegedly stopped paying them.

    FrontPage Magazine reports that Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) has been paying protesters $5,000 a month to demonstrate in Ferguson. Last week, hired protesters who haven’t been paid held a sit-in at MORE’s offices and posted a demand letter online.

    MORE is the re-branded Missouri branch of ACORN, which filed for bankruptcy in late 2010, FrontPage reported. MORE and other groups supporting the Black Lives Matter movement have received millions of dollars from billionaire financier George Soros.

    SHOOT THOSE THAT RIOT !

  • Tiger

    This is not a “Protest” MLK had “Protests”. These are riots and they are run by Soros and his thugs. The people who are seen on video breaking into stores, smashing cash registers and taking the money etc, should be picked-up put into jail and punished. George Soros also needs to be picked-up sued and jailed for funding all this. BLM is funded by him.

    Up in our face and people from the area called in yesterday to Talk Shows said they were told they would leave work early. That riots, violent riots were expected and they made way for this.

  • Skip Plummer

    The national guard. They should have been deployed on the first night of rioting. Better late than never.

  • Lewis

    May be he will die he deserves it sorry P.O.S.

  • KayO

    Watch the Agenda films by Curtis Bowers. The communist left is the handler of these rioters. They lie to them to make them angry and to put them in the mom-mentality. These mobs are simply test-dummies of government control tactics. Their handlers don’t care about them-they’re just using them. Watch the films. All of this has been planned for decades by the communists. BLM needs to wake up.

  • onefour

    I would have called in the National Guard in less than a day. It’s becoming pretty obvious that within less than a day that a riot will ensue when ever an incident like this occurs. Just have one posting to social media and they start even before the really facts are out.

  • ezekiel22

    Just watched Jesse “gimmedamoney” Jackson on Cavuto. He was a bit short of facts except for the ones he could make up.
    I think that a majority of the racial issues could be laid at the feet of not only the feckless leadership of Obama but also the media. They omit facts and make others up to suit their selfish agenda.

  • DrBillLemoine

    I never condone violence including shootings at demonstrations. On the other hand, I can understand the frustration of black men who are gunned down with little or no provocation by police, the cause of this demonstration. Plus criminals and misfits often attend demonstrations to cause mayhem they think is not traceable. It’s like posters here posting with phony names to avoid accountability at home and with friends. But on the air last night police had things well in hand, so calling out the National Guard is a desperation act by Gov. McCrory who suffers today from businesses, sports and others withdrawing from activities in NC due to racial bigotry, primarily in black voter suppression and earlier in homophobic law. It’s part of the misfit Freedom Caucus/Tea Party movement that involves so much bigotry and regression today especially in red states and their cities. Peaceful demonstrations are called for; not soldiers, riot gear or shootings.

  • An American Patriot

    THANK GOODNESS THE GOVENOR STEPPED IN!!! Because the Mayor, Jennifer Roberts CAN’T OR WON’T do the job. STEP ASIDE JENNIFER ROBERTS, YOU ARE UNFIT!!! The riots last night should have been stopped, but the Mayor tied the hands of the police!!! The County Sheriff needs to step in….he doesn’t answer to the Mayor!!! These riots will continue into the weekend…and when they hold the NFL fans hostage going to the game at the stadium….someone will get shot!!! Bring the Water Cannons in and blow their asses away!!! These are thugs from the Bronx that drove down to protest!!! Arrest them!!! Like I said, STEP ASIDE JENNIFER ROBERTS, YOU ARE UNFIT!!!

  • Askjrsk

    Well now more community unrest. Invited and paid inciters bussed into aggravate and increase the unrest and chaos. State of emergency. Martial law? Smokescreen? Debates coming. Hillary in bad form. She is reported to go into high powered tantrums cursing, screaming, throwing objects. No cell phones allowed to record. News notified not to report this. She’s wild calling Donald Trump terrible names. Her greatest fear, he will have her hung from a Flag pole. She is beyond scared at this time. Her fear is killing her. Talk of her not debating is in the air. Aides are scared her meltdown terrifying. She is violent uncontrollably dangerous. She knows she’s lost and her fears are the yet unreleased files will bring her down even more. She is furious at Dnald Trump exposing her . It is driving her insane, especially going forward with criminal prosecution for her crimes against America. Her craziness is driving her health down further.

  • Luke

    The National guard should be used to retake the WH and drag everyone there out into the street for arrest..
    Protest is one thing but rioting and looting should be dealt with extreme malice, use animal control methods..

    • Askjrsk

      Obamas true colors showing.

  • steve whitlow

    Why did the NC governor wait so long to call out the guard when they knew something bad was going happen with the BLM group, even 1-2 days earlier would have stopped anything they were going to do. In the older days late 50’s & 60’s when you had a group of protesters coming to your town the buses, trains & all cars would be checked at check-points & when they met the profile were not allowed in that city & were bused to like maybe the beach or a town say 200 miles. Just keep the protestors out of the area. But in today’s world our gov’t. is SOOO PC, they would rather have people hurt or shot at vs. moving them to another area. If these people knew that they would be arrested & put in jail & have a large fine & maybe jail time for the leaders, this would stop all this PC STUFF.. WE NEED REAL CHANGES IN OUR GOVERNMENT ——THE LAST 8 YEARS HAS BEEN HISTORIES W O R S T E V E R for our our country.. WE THE PEOPLE MUST TAKE BACK AMERICA !!!! Thanks, SCW a VIETNAM ERA VET. 1965-1971

    • Askjrsk

      Obama the community organizer rigged this smokescreen. Elections coming up Hillary shovel ready. Martial law? emergency? Dictators?

    • An American Patriot

      The Governor didn’t wait too long…the Mayor was suppose to do her job!!! They didn’t start rioting until after 10 pm on Tuesday, the day Scott was shot. Last night’s rioting was caused by thugs that drove down from the Bronx to destroy our city. The Mayor is inept, she did not protect our city, our citizens, nor our police. NOW THE GOVERNOR IS STEPPING IN…THANK GOD!!! Bring the water cannons in and blow their asses away!

      • steve whitlow

        Hey AP did you know that 9 people in the City of Charlotte are of course Democraps only 2 Rep. & the Gov. is of course you guessed it Rep. So far this is a Duplicate of course BALTIMORE, did you expect any other result from the Democraps, these people don’t have a clue to take care of the tribes in Charlotte, they need to resign & also in the other Democrap controlled cities which may number around 100 or so cities they are not qualified to herd Goats or in this case Hogs as we say in the south.. These people if they were outsiders should have been PUT BACK ON BUSSES & SENT ON THERE RIOTIST WAY TO ANY CITY 100-200 miles away or back to CHICAGO or DC from where they came from, pick up their checks from SORO’S & be on there Happy Ass way or go to jail..Thanks SCW a Vietnam Era Vet 1965-1971.

    Enough is enough, get the National Guard in there, round up the tards and take them to one of the “FEMA” camps and sort out just who these morons are and maybe keep them there until they can prove they are no longer a threat to society. Maybe they could educate the ignorant fools and not let them go until they can get jobs and be productive members of society.
    Also, it would be a good way to find out how many are actually citizens of Charlotte. How many were paid to start this crap? Be great to prove this administration and their supporters are committing Treason to give Odumbo a reason to call for a State of Emergency and stop the elections, which by now anyone can see Hillary is going to loose badly…

  • Tiger

    Looting and rioting and calling police and all white people devils has nothing to do with a protest. I don’t remember any of MLK’s people doing any of this. Matter of fact I don’t remember them calling for cop killing. I don’t remember them calling all white people and police devils. They were well dressed, decent and people who fought and marched in peace.

    This has nothing to do with a protest and everything to do with pure, unadulterated “Hate” and these people who are breaking into stores they are nothing more than thieves and filthy thugs who need arresting and to be put in permanent Detention Centers until their trials come up. Soros and anybody affiliated with any of this needs to be jailed immediately.

    I personally, refuse to believe that these uneducated savages represent the black communities throughout our country. If it were to be revealed that this is in the heart of every black person in this country then we not only have a terror threat we have a holocaust threat from people who if come together intend to kill white people across America.

Would prefer forever but people get slack.
            “Executive Order 13603 (National Defense Resources Preparedness) states
            that, in case of a war or national emergency, the federal government has
            the authority to take over almost every aspect of American society.
            Food, livestock, farming equipment, manufacturing, industry, energy,
            transportation, hospitals, health care facilities, water resources,
            defense and construction – all of it could fall under the full control
            of Mr. Obama. The order empowers the president to dispense these vast
            resources as he sees fit during a national crisis.”

  • Rock

    The owners, their family members or top officials in ABC, CBS,CNN, etc were all given positions in Obama’s cabinet as soon as he was placed in the White House, he basically BOUGHT the media outlets immediately. They will not bite the hand feeding them. This can be checked and verified for those who will say “that’s a lie”. NO, it is a FACT….
    THAT is why only the blacks are identified Dan. Obama has done more to destroy this nations race relations than ANY other president in history and Hillary will follow suit to finish it off. The media is the catalyst, only showing what they are told (what is allowed by the upper management) to show, He has enslaved millions in his FREE RIDE welfare handouts. He and Hillary twist everything to make it all seem good or right, it is NOT. George Soro’s bought Obama’s presidency to destroy this country from within at ALL costs… That is the only thing Obama has done perfectly and again….. Hillary will continue down this path to finish America off.
    TRUMP 2016 !

    • McFerguson

      Yo, Rock, I think you nailed it!

    • The Redhawk

      BULLS EYE!!! NOW these are FACTS which will never be Shown by the Networks nor MSM pretend “JOURNALISTS”

    • used_to_be_a_liberal

      Absolutely agree with you. I am going to go a step further. These are not protesters, they are useful idiots.
      Clinton, Obama, and Soros, have been pushing this, they have been manipulating this, they have made great use of the useful idiot crowd. The question is why?
      The only answer that I can come up with is that they want to nationalize every police force, every cop in the country, this would place them on the federal payroll, under federal control.
      Could they do it? absolutely. First you create the problem, Obama has done that, then you expand it, then you manipulate it. Then you throw out some trial balloons, which Obama has done such as comments like police need to be transparent, held accountable, under better control, and he did make a remark about police being under federal control about a year ago.
      How do you sell this, easy, once there is so much mayhem, so much media coverage that the population is sick of it. Then you come in with the “fix” All sorts of speeches in regards to policing, control, and accountability, and transparency. Then you go state by state, and say hey, let us take policing off your hands. We will place them under federal control, make them all federal employees, you won’t have to spend a dime on any cost of policing, we will pay for all equipment, buy the buildings from you, etc.. and you will no longer be responsible for the actions of police, in other words you can’t be sued . Look at all the money you can save, now you can put that money into social programs, and the inner cities. See the pattern?
      The only thing is that a bit down the road police will have even more authority, less accountability, and these useful idiots that are rioting, etc.. will find themselves thrown under the bus.
      Hopefully Trump is the wrench in this wheel, and he can stop this progression.

        This is all Obamas agenda! I see a national emergency state of chaos coming. Martial law calm unrest in cities . Maybe before elections. Obama incited rioting.

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          Anything is possible, however, I think it is unlikely because then their total game plan would be exposed. This would be political suicide for Obama, and the democrat party, and RINOs who support Obama, also they would need to have the support, 100% support of the police and the military, and they definitely do not have that. The risk to them and their agenda is far too great for them to attempt a coup of the American People.
          The hardcore left-wit population is somewhere between 10% and 20% of the over-all population, they for the most part would not go to battle, they would be over-run. If they brought in foreign troops or U N Troops, there would be absolutely no hesitation in shooting them. We would be looking at civil war, and no government employee would be safe.
          Then all we need to do is look at the Republic that the Roman Empire once was. Caesar was assonated by those close to him, and Caligula was assonated by his own guards.
          Nope, it is simply far too dangerous for them to attempt a stunt like that, they could not be protected, then too, if they fled to one of those underground mountain “bunkers” who says that they have to be let out.

    • Roy Fredrichsen

      It appears to me that O’Bama wants the young Blacks to start a race war which will give O’Bama the excuse he wants to declare what he thinks is martial law on this country. At that point he will be dictator of the United States.

        It’s sick !

Come on people ! A police officer isn’t going to defend himself unless he is sure the person he is dealing with is a threat to his or her life and or the lives of others.

    I watched the coverage last night of the “peaceful protest”. I wonder how many of those peaceful protesters actually knew the name of the the “black man” that was shot by the police? And why does the media only identify “blacks” when an incident like this occurs? When a white man is shot they they rarely if ever say a “white man”. Under an administration featuring the first black President, we all thought racial relations would improve. They’re the worse they’ve been in 60 years…..Thanks President Obama

        Yeah, and let’s not forget the despicable billionaire, George Soros’s, hand in this mess. He’s the leftist loon who fed his money into the Ferguson riots after the “Gentle Giant, hands up, don’t shoot” fiasco where the thug, Michael Brown, tried to kill a Sheriff’s deputy and was made to assume room temperature for his efforts. I suspect Soros is throwing a few million dollars around the Black Lives Matter mutants to fan the flames of hate and discontent in Charlotte, N.C.
