Maher: Even If Keith Scott Had a Gun, ‘You Don’t Have To Kill Every Time Somebody Does Something That Makes You Nervous’

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher said that even if Keith Lamont Scott had a gun, “you don’t have to kill every time somebody does something that makes you nervous. … If I was the police academy, I would say, wait till later in the encounter before you shoot.”

Maher stated, “We don’t know whether he had a gun, but even if he did, you don’t have to kill every time somebody does something that makes you nervous. We have to train our police to not be that guy, who just empties the clip. If I was the police academy, I would say, wait till later in the encounter before you shoot. They seem to be teaching shoot first thing in the encounter.”

He added, “[I]t’s an open carry state, North Carolina. So, we apparently live in this country where it’s open carry, really just for white people.”
