normally I'd give the police the benefit of the doubt.....however,

    This is the murder of an unarmed man, this is the murder of an unarmed man shot in the back 8x's. The order for him to cuff afterwards is fucking just gross. Judge this incident on its own merits. This cop deserves maximum penalty by law.

    Yeah, that's pretty open and shut. Shame this douche had to do that. Makes all the other claims seem to have greater merit.

    I agree with you 100%. I post this to also prove that certain posters here are labelled as blind followers of the cops as it relates to shootings, etc....I wanted to point out that just as I'd prefer criminals be held accountable for their behaviors, so should cops who choose to become criminals and commit cold blooded murder. I don't think it's hard to be objective and base your opinions on facts. I don't blindly support thugs because they are a downtrodden minority either, they choose to act like animals, I'm not a cop apologist but I'm also not THE REGGIE whisperer like Chriza.

    No it doesn't. This was an aberration. Michael Brown deserved what he got, the guy in New York was NOT choked to death, etc, etc.

    He was thinking he had to alter the crime scene by placing the taser next to the body. He shot the guy down with 8 shots to the back, he has been arrested by the FBI and will probably be charged with a civil right violation. Do your own eyes lie to you? Or are you so much of a boot licker that cold blooded murder is just fine by you as long its a cop doing it?

    I mean you can see it with you own eyes on the video. The cop fires 8-9 rounds into the guys back, he alters the crime scene to make it look like the guy had the taser. If it were not for the video another cop would get off scott free.

    This was obviously excessive but when the fuck are people gonna stop resisting and running? I don't know the story but GODDAMN it frustrates the shit out of me. He shouldn't have been shot in the back but if he didn't run or try and grab the taser things wouldn't have escalated.

    (Reuters) - A white South Carolina police officer was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video showed him shooting eight times at the back of a 50-year-old black man who was running away.

    North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey said state investigators decided to charge officer Michael Slager, 33, with the murder of Walter Scott after they viewed the video of the incident, which followed a traffic stop on Saturday morning.

    The FBI and U.S. Justice Department have begun a separate investigation.

    "When you're wrong, you're wrong," Summey told reporters. "If you make a bad decision, I don't care if you're behind the shield or just a citizen on the street, you have to live by that decision."

    The incident began after Scott was pulled over for a broken brake light, police said.

    A video of the encounter published by the New York Times shows a brief scuffle between Slager and Scott before the latter begins running away.

    The video, apparently recorded by a bystander, shows the officer firing eight shots at Scott as he runs away. Scott then slumps facedown onto the grass.

    A police incident report says that Slager, who joined the department in 2009, told other officers Scott had taken his stun gun. In the video, Scott does not appear to be armed while fleeing from Slager.
