During the video, Rakeyia Scott can be heard saying: “Keith don’t do it...”
“We hear you come to the scene, and you’re clearly very upset, and you’re saying, ‘Keith, don’t do it. Keith, don’t do it.’ What do you mean? What are you telling him not to do?” King asked her.
“I’m not talking to Keith. I’m calling Keith’s name for him to hear me. I’m talking to the officers that I actually see changing their stands, their positions,” Rakeyia Scott said. “And it’s going in slow motion, but I see everything at one time.”
“I heard you say, he has TBI, traumatic brain injury. He’s just taken his medication. What kind of medication is it? What does the medication do? What was the point you were making about that?” King asked.
“He takes almost 11 different medications since his accident on November the 2nd of last year. You have to give it time to kick in. If not, he’s not, if you start a conversation with him, he’s not going to remember the conversation once the medicine has kicked in,” Rakeyia Scott said. “He’ll come back and say, ‘What was you sayin’ to me earlier about,’ or he just -- he doesn’t talk. We as a family know first thing in the mornings, we don’t bother him until he takes his medicine.”
Rakeyia Scott told King that her husband did not have a gun.
“So when you see the video, and there’s a gun lying beside your husband, where do you think that gun came from?” King asked.
“I know that he didn’t have it. I didn’t see a gun. Where that gun came from, I do not know,” Rakeyia Scott responded. “He was not a threat. You saw him backing up, why didn’t you just give him a command then? Why didn’t you give him a command then?”
“And all we want is to know why? Just why. Why did you have to take Keith that day. Why did you have to take him from us that day? Give us a reason, ‘cause everything that you’re saying right now, it just makes me angrier each day, because I just keep hearing more stuff. Give us your reason. The real, valid reason as to why my husband was -- my husband’s life was taken that day before me,” Rakeyia Scott continued.
An autopsy commissioned by the family shows Scott was on his medications.
