Maxine Waters: "I Don't Care What The Law Says," I Care About Keith Scott's Wife


Rep. Maxine Waters, D - California and member of the Congressional Black Caucus, reacts to the video released on Friday of Keith Lamont Scott being shot and killed by police in Charlotte, North Carolina.

THOMAS ROBERTS, MSNBC: At this point there is a state law in N.C. that prohibits the police, that was signed by the governor, that prohibits the police from releasing the dashcam video or the body cam video, and the police chief has said that he feels it is correct, because he doesn't want to publicize the victim's "worst day." What would you say to the governor?

REP. MAXINE WATERS (D-CA): I don't care what the law says.

You have a wife who video [taped] what took place, her husband has been murdered. And if you tell me that she should care about a law that literally is in place to protect police anyway, and that she should not have shown it, I'm with the wife. I don't care what the law says. And the law that is expected to go into effect October 1 is a law that shouldn't be in place anyway...

I don't believe in that law. I think it is an unjust law. I think the wife is correct. I stand with her. I am outraged that this man was murdered in front of his wife when she was pleading with them.

I don't care what the law says.
