Charlotte police released dramatic video footage Saturday that shows officers surrounding a black man with his hands at his side before shots are fired and he buckles to the ground. It's unclear if there was anything in the man's hands.
The footage of the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott was released after several days of demonstrations that coalesced around demands that the public see the video. Police said Scott had a gun, though residents have said he was unarmed.

A man who knows Hillary Clinton's debating skills has some cogent advice for Donald Trump.
The New York Times editorial board endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton Saturday, writing the endorsement is "rooted in respect for her intellect, experience, toughness and courage over a career of almost continuous public service."
The Times touted Clinton's record as first lady, New York senator and secretary of state in their endorsement, claiming she has shown the ability to work with politicians from opposing parties to enact her policy agenda. The endorsement only made passing reference to Republican nominee Donald Trump, who "discloses nothing concrete about himself or his plans while promising the moon and offering the stars on layaway," according to the Times.
Speaking at a rally in Roanoke, Virginia, Trump told supporters the new museum is "really a beautiful place,'' calling it "the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, African-American Art.'' Actually, it's the National Museum of African American History and Culture. It officially opened Saturday.
