Scott’s shooting death lead to several days of protesting and marches in the City of Charlotte.

Talking with the family’s attorney Charles Monnett, they don’t agree with this ruling.

“Mrs. Scott is extremely disappointed by the decision. She feels strongly that some sort of disciplinary action was appopriate,” said Monnett.
