NO BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT FOR KEITH LAMONT SCOTT

AND NO JURY WILL EVALUATE
WHETHER THE OFFICER WAS ACTUALLY IN ANY DANGER. 


NO CHARGES WILL BE FILED AGAINST OFFICER BRENTLEY VINSON
Officer Brentley Vinson

The district attorney's announcement that no charges would be filed "doesn't end our inquiry," Scott family attorney Charles Monnett said.
"We still have concerns," Monnett said. "We still have real questions about what decisions were made that day," such as whether police could have used better deescalation techniques that may have prevented Scott's death.
Another Scott family attorney, Justin Bamberg, acknowledged that "it's safe to say he did have a gun on his person" -- but there was no definitive proof that he had the gun in his hand.

...Regardless, Murray said, Scott "could have raised his gun at any point" to shoot officers.
