Mourners Pay Respects to Walter Scott, Man Shot by Police Officer

Mourners were gathering Saturday morning to remember Walter Scott, the black man shot to death by a police officer last weekend in North Charleston, South Carolina. The funeral is being held in Summerville, about 20 miles from where 50-year-old Scott was killed after fleeing a traffic stop one week ago. Henry Middleton, 67, is a resident of Charleston, North Carolina, and was a friend of Scott’s. On Friday afternoon, people stopped by a wake to pay their respects for the father of four, whose open casket was covered in an American flag and a Dallas Cowboys sign — his favorite team. Scott was stopped for driving with a broken taillight, and ran from the officer, Michael Slager.

The bystander who recorded video that appears to show a white police officer shooting an unarmed black man in the back in South Carolina said there was a struggle between the two men before the deadly shooting, but the officer had control of the situation before he opened fire.
In an exclusive interview with “NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt on Wednesday, Feidin Santana said he started recording after he heard a Taser being deployed.
Santana said, “I remember the police had control of the situation. He had control of Scott. And Scott was trying just to get away from the Taser.”
Officer Michael Slager, 33, was arrested and charged with murder Tuesday for the fatal shooting of Walter Scott, 50, after a traffic stop on Saturday. The video appears to show Slager shooting Scott in the back as he was running away from the officer.

Mort de Walter Scott : l'auteur de la vidéo témoigne

Il parle pour la première fois. L’auteur de la vidéo, sur laquelle on voit un policier blanc tirer sur un homme noir à North Charleston en Caroline du Sud, s’est exprimé dans une interview à NBC. Profondément marqué par cet épisode, Feidin Santana explique pourquoi il a filmé puis transmis ces images aux proches de la victime.

”Si c’était arrivé à quelqu’un de ma famille, j’aurais aimé connaître la vérité. C’est la raison pour laquelle je leur ai transmis cette vidéo”, explique-t-il. Et quand…

Walter Scott Police Shooting VIDEO: Moment Police Officer Michael Slager Shoots Black Man (VIDEO)

Walter Scott Shooting VIDEO: Police Officer Michael Slager Shoots Black Man Multiple Times in Back | Walter Scott Police Shooting VIDEO. Michael Slager Police Officer Charged With MURDER

Police Chief Eddie Driggers said Tuesday that Slager had been arrested.
Mayor Keith Summey added during a news conference that as a result of the video and Slager’s “bad decision,” the officer would be charged with murder.

Summey said Slager’s actions were not representative of the entire police force.

“When you’re wrong, you’re wrong,” 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 footage, filmed by an anonymous bystander, shows the end of the confrontation between the two on Saturday after Scott, who had a warrant out for his arrest, ran from a traffic stop. It was the first piece of evidence that could contradict a statement that Slager released to the public through his attorney.

SLED spokesman Thom Berry said Tuesday that he could not confirm whether the agency has the video.

“All I can say is that our investigation is continuing,” Berry said, “and it would be inappropriate for us to discuss any specifics at this time.”

Attorney David Aylor, who released a statement on Slager’s behalf earlier this week, said Tuesday that he wasn’t representing the officer anymore.

“I’m no longer involved in form or fashion,” Aylor said.

Slager has said through Aylor that Scott had wrested his Taser from him during a struggle. The officer felt threatened when he fired, his attorney said.

Deputy Coroner Brittney Martin was not immediately available Tuesday to confirm how many times Scott was hit.

At the time, Scott was wanted for arrest on a Family Court warrant, Charleston County sheriff’s Maj. Eric Watson said Tuesday.

He had a history of arrests related to contempt of court charges for failing to pay child support. The only accusation of violence against Scott during his lifetime came through a 1987 assault and battery charge, but the disposition of that charge was not immediately known.

Public sentiment

The footage comes amid a discussion about race and policing in the U.S.

Scott was black. Slager is white.

The nationwide conversation was sparked by the fatal shooting in August of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo. Brown, an 18-year-old black man, was unarmed at the time, but witnesses said he got into a struggle with Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, and was shot during the scuffle.

Though a grand jury did not find any reason to indict Wilson, the shooting ignited protests, some of which turned violent. A “black lives matter” movement inspired talk about whether police nationwide too quickly resort to deadly force against black men.

During that wave of public sentiment that prompted rallies in the Charleston area, South Carolina Trooper Sean Groubert, who is white, was arrested for shooting Levar Jones, a black man who had reached into his pickup for his driver’s license during a September traffic stop in Columbia. Groubert faces a charge of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, and the state settled a lawsuit by Jones for 0,000.

The development in Scott’s death also came on the same day when SLED arrested a North Augusta police officer in the Feb. 9, 2014, shooting death of Ernest Satterwhite. The officer, 25-year-old Justin Gregory Craven, faces a count of discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle, a felony charge punishable with up to 10 years in prison.

Walter Scott | Jurors Unable to Agree in Trial of South Carolina Officer Who Shot Walter Scott

Jurors Unable to Agree in Trial of South Carolina Officer Who Shot Walter Scott
CHARLESTON, S.C. — The trial of Michael T. Slager, the North Charleston police officer whose videotaped killing of an unarmed black man staggered the nation as it was embroiled in debate about police misconduct and racial biases in law enforcement, ended in a mistrial on Monday.

Judge Clifton B. Newman’s decision to halt the proceedings came three days after jurors signaled that they were within one vote of returning a guilty verdict against Mr. Slager, who could have been convicted of either murder or voluntary manslaughter for the killing of Walter L. Scott. But jurors also sent conflicting messages on Friday about whether they could break their impasse, setting off a confused legal frenzy.

On Monday, though, the panel of 11 white people and a black man again sent word that it would not be able to reach a unanimous verdict about Mr. Slager’s conduct, prompting the mistrial ruling.

Judge Newman thanked the jurors for their efforts.

Prosecutors had signaled before the ruling that they expect to bring the case again, but there is a possibility that the indictment could be resolved through a plea agreement…………….

A police officer in North Charleston, S.C., was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him shooting in the back and killing an apparently unarmed black man while the man ran away.

The officer, Michael T. Slager, 33, said he had feared for his life because the man had taken his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. A video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as the man, Walter L. Scott, 50, fled. The North Charleston mayor announced the state charges at a news conference Tuesday evening.

The shooting came on the heels of high-profile instances of police officers’ using lethal force in New York, Cleveland, Ferguson, Mo., and elsewhere. The deaths have set off a national debate over whether the police are too quick to use force, particularly in cases involving black men.

The shooting unfolded after Officer Slager stopped the driver of a Mercedes-Benz with a broken taillight, according to police reports. Mr. Scott ran away, and Officer Slager chased him into a grassy lot that abuts a muffler shop. He fired his Taser, an electronic stun gun, but it did not stop Mr. Scott, according to police reports.

Moments after the struggle, Officer Slager reported on his radio: “Shots fired and the subject is down. He took my Taser,” according to police reports.

But the video, which was taken by a bystander and provided to The New York Times by the Scott family’s lawyer, presents a different account. The video begins in the vacant lot, apparently moments after Officer Slager fired his Taser. Wires, which carry the electrical current from the stun gun, appear to be extending from Mr. Scott’s body as the two men tussle and Mr. Scott turns to run.

South Carolina Police Officer Charged With Murder

Cell phone video of shooting allegedly led to the arrest of patrolman Michael Slager.

How I’d Prosecute Michael Slager in Walter Scott’s Murder

The cop apologists are trying everything in their de minimis quiver to explicit away Michael Slager’s murder of Walter Scott. And the video says it all. Watch the deliberate Weaver pose, the drawing down, the aiming, the precise targeting — all of which takes time and deliberations and premeditation. That’s right. And forget anything and everything you’ve heard or thought about police shootings. This isn’t Ferguson or Michael Brown or Eric Garner or even Tamir Rice or even Akai Gurley. Those cases involved at least the initial argument that a suspect/perp did something that might have warranted an officer’s activities. Michael Brown menaced Officer Darren Wilson. Eric Garner resisted arrest and died from the rigors of the arrest process and not being shot or beaten. This case is different. Walter Scott was executed by an officer who never apparently thought of giving chase. No argument could be made that this man posed a hreat as he merely ran away and never even looked back, nothing furtive or threatening in the least.

We don’t need no stinkin’ grand jury. This North Charleston police officer, now charged with murder, decided he wasn’t going to give chase to a 50 year-old, out of shape traffic and child support miscreant. No, siree! Give chase?! Are you kidding? This cop violated every known rule of police pursuit known to mankind without exception. “When you’re wrong, you’re wrong,” North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey said, announcing the arrest. “When you make a bad decision, I don’t care if you’re behind the shield or a citizen on the street, you have to live with that decision.” It will be a tutorial in police academies (I hope) for generations to come.

Michael Slager Indicted On Federal Charges Over Scott Killing

Michael Slager Indicted On Federal Charges Over Scott Killing

A white former South Carolina police officer charged with murder in the shooting death of an unarmed black motorist who was running away has been indicted on federal charges. The charges include depriving the victim of his civil rights.
34 year old Michael Slager has also been charged in an indictment unsealed Wednesday, with obstruction of justice and unlawful use of a weapon during the commission of a crime.
Charged with murder in state court, Slager was fired from the force. He was held in solitary confinement until January. He was then released on half a million dollars bail and put under house arrest at an undisclosed location. Slager was allowed to leave only for work, church and medical or legal appointments.
He is to appear before a judge in Charleston later Wednesday
