A few days had passed since the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, and a period marked by anger and unrest in North Carolina’s largest city. Zianna had come to race her voice regarding the incidents.

Washington Post quoted:

“I’ve come here today to talk about how I feel, and I feel like that we are treated differently than other people,” she said. “I don’t like how we’re treated. Just because of our color — doesn’t mean anything to me.


At the first council meeting since Woods was fatally shot, many Charlotte residents sharply criticized Mayor Jennifer Roberts, Police Chief Kerr Putney and other city leaders for how they responded to the deadly encounter and for how information was conveyed to the public.

Protesters had clogged the city’s streets night after night, calling on police to release video of the shooting. Putney first said he had no plans to release the footage to the public, telling reporters that “transparency is in the eye of the beholder.”

The department ultimately released two videos, neither of which answered a key question: Was Scott pointing a gun at police when he was fatally shot? (As it turned out, one of the officers failed to turn on his body camera when he responded to the call, which goes against department policy.)


Washington Post added :

“We are black people, and we shouldn’t have to feel like this,” Zianna said, sobbing. “We shouldn’t have to protest because y’all are treating us wrong. We do this because we need to and have rights.”

Zianna said she was born and raised in Charlotte. But until recently, she said: “I’ve never felt this way.” I can’t stand how we’re treated.

Zianna cried for her friends, her loved ones and the people that lives in Charlotte.
