South Carolina cop charged with murder after video shows him shooting black man dead

White South Carolina police officer will be charged with murder over the shooting death of a black man who appeared to be fleeing from him, local authorities said on Tuesday.

A video of the Saturday incident, in which North Charleston police officer Michael Slager appeared to shoot a man identified by local media as 50-year-old Walter Scott, was viewed by state investigators, and a decision was made to charge Slager with murder, North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey told a news conference.

If a citizen does not have a healthy fear of the Trigger Happy Peace Officer then something just ain't right.

Like I said I think the story that Scott was a feeble runner is highly embellished.

IMO this is the most scandalous aspect to the story.

I can't imagine any aspect of this story which is more outrageous than this: the underestimation of the criminal's running abilities.

Scott enticed the officer. It is an impulse that cannot be restrained by many white men. No thought even registers in these males' minds, they just see the black blur, and Blam! Blam!

Ahhh... Case solved, you figured it out.

I bet Scott said this to the cop: “Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, bet you can't catch me”!

why would anyone run away from their car for a simple traffic stop?

People panic and do stupid shit sometimes.

Doesn't mean they deserve bullets.

I can recall one time when I was young and stupid I was pulled over, and I jumped out of
the car as soon as I stopped so I could talk to the officer. Fortunately the guy who
stopped me wasn't Sean Groubert and it didn't end for me, like it did for Levar Jones:

This video is a typical example of police in the Carolinas. They have nothing better to do than harass everyone for stupid non-moving violations. BTW, they are also the #1 cause of accidents on the roadways with their constant presence everywhere. These two states are about as close to martial law as you can get, if they aren't already there now?

Interesting how the whitest person in every encounter gets the benefit of the doubt.

The whitest or right-est is always who they defend. Makes me think they have few real principles.

Apparently you didn't watch the dash cam video. Watch it, then report back if you think the cop was "harassing" Scott during that stop.

He pulled him over, for being black and driving a mercedes. The murderer alleged that his 3rd break light was out, but those usually aren't even required to be operational. Either way, this coupled with his reaction, ( shooting him eight times in the back while jogging away), is the definition of harassment.

For any freedom loving American, that doesn't like the idea of being harassed to death, by big government, union thugs.

Especially when it is painfully clear who law enforcement targets, in many cases, most brutally, and who gets to break the law constantly and face no retribution.

The harassment was in stopping Scott in the first place. Don't be a numbskull.

The pig thug unions will ask Obozo to pass a Patriot act style law to make it illegal to film cops in any way. Will coat it in security and anybody who films a cop under any circumstance will magically disappear with no trial -all for national security of course.

Oh probably another raise in pension to cull the population.

I still can't wrap my head around why all these right wing morons, who always rail against big, over-reaching government, and worse still, public unions, are lining up to defend a murderer.

They should focus on something more important, like the fact that the cop was dangerously negligent of his duty (to protect and serve). It appears that of the eight shots slager fired at close range, slow moving target, only 50% hit his mark. Wheres the outrage over all the waste? And the danger that the murderer put the public in, by being so terrible at his job, that he wound up firing four errant bullets into public space, in broad daylight.

Hell , what if one of those would have hit his backup, who emerged seconds later from the direction slager was firing? Taxpayers would have been on the hook for the medical bills of the other cop, lawyers, disability, physcological therapy, drugs etc.

S.S, you have to give errc the benefit of the doubt, his functioning brain cells are very limited. He even has a tough time putting together two complete sentences. Trying to explain FACTS to him versus the fantasies he dreams up in his head is just a waste of time!

Slager fired eight shots
Four hit Scott in the back
One hit scott in his ear

Three shots missed the target altogether, putting the public at great risk, of the dangerous actions of the murderous Big Government Union thug.

Right. Something more interesting, like you nitwit right wingers "getting all the facts straight, to fill in the holes, so you have all the pieces of the puzzle"

As if you have some better understanding now, as to how something so tragic as this, A BIG GOVERNMENT UNION THUG murdering an innocent citizen in broad daylight. What with all your important facts, like "he was behind on child support", and "his 3rd brake light was out!".

MAYBE THE GUY RAN BECAUSE, unlike the bubble boys dying their life behind their computers, he understood that once the cop engaged him to harass hom, that he was likely to end up dead. Its a survival instinct, to fight or flight. He chose to flee, in attempt to avoid death at the hands of the murderous gun toting big government unionized gang member, but he was just too damn slow to ever have a chance.

Real Americans will fight to change this corrupt government system so you didnt die in vain

Piece of shit phony "americans" will attempt to paint a different picture, shift blame of your death off of the cop, and spit in the face of every person thats ever fought for our freedoms, because their pathetic and cowardly existence leaves them jealous and spiteful of the rest of us, who would prefer to enjoy our freedom

You are freaking out. It's an open and shut case. There's nothing of interest to discuss other than the minutea of the incident. If you detect racism it's most likely source is the omnipresent liberal guilt.

Man up, and read the thread. Take a few hours to consume CIC's posts.

Examples:

Cop in the Coast Guard, therefore regimented, disciplined; dead guy in the Coast Guard, therefore nothing positive can be concluded.

Dead guy has multiple arrests, therefore a bad character; George Zimmerman had multiple arrests, but he was the shooter, therefore he's the real victim.

Multiple suggestions that we don't know the whole story here, as if something could justify shooting an unarmed man in the back (disciplined, regimented).

I've read all the comments.
the premise is that bringing up the victim's flaws is "defending the cop in the incident"
If that is what anyone takes from cic's comments, the reply post should only contain a link to the video. Words are not needed. The video makes the case a slam dunk.
However, everyone should know by now that cic is not trying to defend the cop.
there is no defense. And he has never directly said the cop was innocent.
What Cic is successfully, intentionally doing is enraging the patnet populace.
