Curfew Lifted in Charlotte After Days of Protests

Curfew Lifted in Charlotte After Days of ProtestsThe mayor of Charlotte has lifted a curfew in the city after several days of protests following the fatal police shooting of a black man. Mayor Jennifer Roberts had imposed the curfew last Thursday as the protests spiralled out of control, with one demonstrator fatally shot during the protests. On Sunday night, however, Roberts said the curfew, from midnight to 6 a.m., would no longer be in effect. Protesters have continued to march through the city’s streets since Keith Scott was shot on Tuesday, but the release of police video of Scott’s death on Saturday seems to have calmed things down.
