cop charged with murder

A white police officer in South Carolina has been charged with murder after shooting an unarmed black man in the back.

Video taken by a bystander, and provided to the New York Times by an attorney, shows Officer Michael Slager, 33, tussling with Walter L. Scott, 50, following a traffic stop on Saturday.

Officer Slager stopped a Mercedes Benz with a broken taillight, according to a police report obtained by the Charlotte Observer. Mr. Scott jumped from the vehicle and ran. The officer pursued the fleeing man into a grassy field behind a muffler shop.

The video starts as Mr. Scott was apparently tasered by Officer Slager. Wires from the stun gun can be seen dangling from Mr. Scott as he turned and ran.

Officer Slager drew his service weapon and fired 8 times. Mr. Scott was about 20 feet away from Officer Slager when he fell to the ground after the 8th shot.

The video shows Slager walk toward the spot where Scott fell. As he walked, he reported on his police radio, “Shots fired and the subject is down. He took my Taser.”

At about the same time, another police officer arrived on the scene. While the 2nd officer tended to Mr. Scott who is lying face down in the grass, Officer Slager strolled back to the spot where his stun gun fell. He is seen picking up the tun gun and walking back toward where Mr. Scott lay motionless in the grass.

The video shows Officer Slager casually drop the stun gun near Mr. Scott's body.

The 2nd officer appears not to notice that Officer Slager planted evidence near a dying man's body.

Mayor Keith Summey announced state charges against Officer Slager at a news conference at noon today (April 7).

“When you’re wrong, you’re wrong,” Mayor Summey said. “When you make a bad decision, don’t care if you’re behind the shield or a citizen on the street, you have to live with that decision.”

The Charlotte Observer reports that Mr. Scott has been arrested 10 times since 1987, mostly for failure to pay child support. Other charges include assault and battery.

Mr. Scott's brother, Anthony, told the Observer his brother probably ran from the officer because he owes child support for his four children and he didn't want to go to jail.

”He has four children, he doesn’t have some type of big violent past or arrest record. He had a job, he was engaged,” said attorney Chris Stewart, who represents Mr. Scott’s family. “He had back child support and didn’t want to go to jail for back child support.”

A coroner's report shows Mr. Scott was shot five times -- three times in the back, once in the upper buttock and once in the ear. One of the bullets pierced his heart. He most likely bled out quickly from the heart wound.

Neither officer provided CPR to Mr. Scott. He likely would have died anyway from the fatal heart shot.

    How can you justify shooting someone over them taking your stun gun?

  • http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhCQJIY3q7iLxENR4h mzwhang90210

    @Missy...yt folks STILL gonna find a way to justify it. Funky azz cracka cop prolly already has $$$ donated for his legal fees.

    And peeps wanna say racism is dead!

    PLENTY yt folks STILL butt hurt because we have an African American president.

    The positive thing that will come out of this tragedy is Scott's four children will be set for life after the city settles with the family. Mr. Scott was killed while running from his responsibilities to his kids. God works in mysterious ways. :nun:

  • PGaiter

    How can you be fearful of someone running away from you empty handed?

    I've personally SEEN videos..where yt folks are cursing..spitting at..trying to hit yt cops. And all the cracka azz pigs do is tell them to "calm down." YT boys straight up RUN from the police. And still end up alive.

    A Black person raises their hand up to cover a sneeze..and they are dead because the officer "feared for his life." Klenexx are a deadly weapon..you aint know??

    Whitty I'll bet you that this cracka cop ALREADY has donations pouring in for his bail.
    And I'll bet the victim will be villified in the media...watch them pull out everything he's ever done...(including putting gum in another child's hair when he was in 2nd grade.)
    But yt folk (and some Black COONS) are quick to say that Black folks need to stop complaining about racism.

    FOH!!!!!!!

    Whang saying FOH means you're angry :lol: behave

  • MisUnderstood

    He was running in slow mo. When you ain't paying your child support don't be driving around with no broken taillight.

    ?....what was he doing out the car anyway?

  • http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhCQJIY3q7iLxENR4h mzwhang90210

    I PERSONALLY saw a video..where this yt chick had just KILLED somebody in a car accident. She was driving drunk. She was calling the yt officer all kinds of stupid SOB's..telling him.."Can't you asking a f*cking question?? What did I f*cking do wrong???"

    He had her in back of the squad car and was just talking calmly to her like she'd just spit on the side walk. I mean this heffa was DDDDDRUNK! And she was struggling (on the video) with the officer while he was trying to get her into the back of the squad car.

    SHE is still alive tho. IJS :coffee:

  • whitty hutton

    iono why i'm sooo giggly today?!? :lol:

  • Honycoatd

    Hi Beautiful people :hug:

    Good evening and night to you all.

    This is another heartbreaking video.

    COLD BLOODED MURDER!!! This officer had no justification in firing his service weapon when Mr. Scott had fleed 15 ft from him and the officer was in no immediate danger of bodily harm.

    I hope Mr. Scott's family find peace and justice.

    This nation's police forces need to give account of how many people are killed by police officers. It should be public knowledge.

    What is done in the dark eventually comes to light.

    This nation belongs to the many different people, cultures and ethnicities not corporation and institutions that throws rocks and hide their hands.

    I still believe in unity and hope for all of us.

    whang, I was gonna say something similar. if any of you have ever watched an episode of cops (some of the old ones) you can clearly see the disparity in how blacks are treated during an arrest or traffic stop in comparison to whites.

    Hey HonyC..good to see your font.

    Folks be forgetting (s'pecially yt folks) that cops aint nuthin but civilians with badges and guns.

    MOST..not all..but a good percentage of them... think those badges/guns make them Lord and God. Still, behind those uniforms you have the SAME racists, sociopaths, psychopaths..that you do in regular civilian folks.

    I used to date a deputy sherrif. One night we passed this man just BEATING down this woman outside of a club. I was like..aren't you gonna stop and do something?? He was like "I'm not on duty."

    SMH..funky azz.

    Exactly Whitty!!

    One time a yt cop stopped me for speeding. He asked me where I worked..and when I told him I worked for HISD (Houston Independent School District)...this mf gonna ask me "Do you work in the cafeteria?"
    I was like :eek:
    I wanted to curse his yt funky azz out SO bad. But I didn't wanna get yet ANOTHER ticket on top of the one he was giving me. :shame:

    FYI to anybody tho...I found this out when I dated that deputy...if you complain to IA (Internal Affairs) about a cop...that complaint whether it is dismissed or not..will STAY on their record for-ev-a!! And it'll affect them getting promoted, etc..w/in the police dept. (From what I was told)

    THAT's how you get back at their stankin azzes! :mad:

    Now Sandra's (hey girl :hi: ) delivery may have been rough, but I do see the irony in what happened here..him running from CS & now his children will likely receive a settlement from the state. it will still never take the place of actually having their father alive here on earth & able to talk to, spend time with..just BE together..no amount of money will take the place of that. this is so...AMERIKKKA

    Like when they try to ignore you when you go to buy something...
    Or try to cut in line in front of you..like you're invisible.
    I used to stay mum..but no more.

This video has all of us colored folks with our panties in a bunch and some even want to start a petition. But here's my thing. I wasn't present for the video nor has management ever done me wrong. I actually push limits and get away with a lot. They also respect my work ethic and opinions.
    But my catch 22 is that even though it's not really my fight, would I be turning my back on my kind for not signing it?

    Yeah..Steve Harvey makes me cringe some times. I memba on Family Feud there was a question about Cinderella..and the contestant said something about the pumpkin (that her fairy Godmother turned into a coach)..and ole ignunt Steve was like "Y'all talkin bout pumpkins and mice..I aint know they had all THAT in Cinderellaaaa." I'm like :facepalm: Nuggahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

  • jackie byrd

    I agree they will try and pin something on the person who filmed the crime. also we can't even get excited that justice will come because just like the filmed the cops shooting rodney king and they got off, same thing will happen here. let God deal with them, that works better because they can't escape.

  • bama_n_jersey

    @Kimi...Yea, I am in Merk City...really :blink: we came to Columbia yesterday and went to Frankie's.

    Gurlllllllll I was :dead:

  • Honycoatd

    Wow moms had no filter. lol. Hurtful especially considering you were prepping the home for her to arrive.

    its 11:36 pm here and I am eating away and playing video games trying to stay awake.

    The video was played at a professional development meeting. It was supposed to be an example of how folks are not supposed to talk on the phone and to each other. Our dept is about 85/15 with black being about 5%. I specialize in one area so I'm never present for the meetings. Everything I know is basically hearsay but I do see how management is acting from afar.

    What I don't understand with the footage is why is the black officer rolling with the chit?! :coffee: I need answers Sway!!

  • zeta4lif

    @AJ :hi: my question exactly. MRZ talks all the time about some black officers that be rolling with the program cause they scared to loose they damn jobs and "goodt pensions" that's why I'm kinda glad he works for the State (same difference though) I just keep all of them :pray: up.

    @TM I am all for being for a cause and supporting “your people” :blink: but how can you sign a petition for something you were not even present for? Have no footage or evidence of? If that petition is about that specific incident and nothing more you wouldn’t have a legal leg to stand of if called into HR to discuss it. What are you going to say oh I heard about it and signed it cause I am black too so :shrugs: Now if they are other things that give you pause and that is included in the petition and you can speak to it then by all means go ahead. But if not :nono: And that doesn’t make you a coward or a sell out. It actually lends credibility to their argument because they don’t just have random people cosigning stuff that is not true. THAT is how you end up losing in the end. When you fudge things a little to right a wrong. Now if they play the video for you and ask you do you think that was appropriate then by all means go in. But again.. it depends on the wording of the petition and if it is specific to the group that was present

  • whitty hutton

    morning all!
    Z4L!! :hugs:

    AJ, :lol: I told yall already, I live around "those" kinda niggas. if you not in the "clique" then you ain't shyt. it's all about which fraternity or sorority you're in and what HBCU you attended...mind you, these is mid-30s and up negroes. smh

    and the cops over here look out for the folks they "know" and if you're a Black person they don't know (and they're ALL Black cops), then they are nasty and rude towards you. now mind you, I have a number of family members in law enforcement and the legal profession, not to mention a few immediate family members in the state and national legislative branches; but they don't know that so I'm just a regla nigga to them since I don't have a frat/sorority tag or anything indicating what college I attended. sad, but true. I still don't buy into the ALL cops are bad ideology although it would be easy considering some of the encounters I've had. I think I'm more pissed off when a Black cop treats another Black person like shyt than when a white officer does it.

    @WhittyHut agreed. Lord knows I try to stay below the radar. I don't believe in all that college tag frame and paying extra for specialty plates that don't go towards the cause. I shouldn't have to justify what organization I belong to or school I attended while driving. This is really sad where we are "THIS" day in age. Straight wild, wild west!! Every time I see a brother/sister with all of that I just smh because in my mind you just made yourself a target but I ride solo in my own car so...

    @WHITTY: I only try to let my brainpower show every now and again. I can’t show too much tho. :lol: Now once we get a new post (hopefully) I can take this day to be ignant again cause Lord knows we all need a laugh. God bless this man and his family.

Also, I like to let my character and presence speak for itself .. then make you wonder more about me and then when you find out be like oh ok cool! Not the reverse.

    Officer Slager was attacked with the taser. The hooks are attached at the left chest & left leg. During the course of the two minute felonious assault on the officer, Scott had gained control of the weapon and fired on the officer while also tangling himself in the discharged wire. As he moved away, the wires began pulling on the officer causing him to believe Scott still possessed the long range weapon and might take the attack further. Fearing that Scott might disable and kill him, drew his remaining weapon and used it. It wasn't until he began to attempt to locate the taser that he saw it on the pathway. He immediately sought to retrieve it, then walked back to the other officer. While standing the taser falls off his gear belt. Without drawing attention to it, he simply picks it up, this time carefully securing it. Police protocol outlines that Scott's actions, both singularly & in total, constitute a life and death situation warranting any and all the officers actions. Officer Slager, obviously giving more consideration to Scott's life than his own, elected to begin with non-lethal weaponry. Two witnesses and video verify Officer Slager's sworn statement of the incident. Also, there was no arrest warrant for Scott.The investigation has not produced a possible motive for taking such a risk and attacking an armed public servant. Law enforcement agencies explain that these decisions are made using risk assessment wherein the greater the risk, the more there is to gain. It seems that this situation would warrant a complete investigation following th letter of the law. And all the evidence collected, none having been destroyed, spurring all irregularities. One would hope.
