I'm sure everyone knows about this by now, but I didn't see a thread.

- Warning - Pretty disturbing, so watch at your own discretion.

Even the usual internet racists are having trouble defending this one. Apparently the cop has been charged with murder, but we'll have to wait and see if anything happens, although I'm betting nothing will.


EDIT - forgot to mention, the cop, Michael Slager is seen in what looks like an attempt to frame the victim, by placing a tazer near him. He called his station and filed a bogus report which includes the cliche lines of 'I was fearing for my life' etc, and he reported that there was struggle, and that Walter Scott was trying to reach for his weapon etc. He basically used the Darren Wilson defence,

Lots of articles etc to read from from google as well if you're interested.

RIP.

Dear humans,

Please stop killing and hurting people. Life is meaningless anyway, so you might as well not be a complete dick about it. Thanks.

Best regards,

Without having any sympathy for police men who gun down people without reason, it's a self-produced problem due to the permission for civilians to be armed. Therefore police men must be paranoid when working under such circumstances. But that laws don't change despite these evident problems is madness.

I'm glad not to live in a country where law allows people to carry around guns in public and openly be nazis just because they place their trust in a nearly 250 year old piece of paper that gives them freedom to do so. Even though I believe in freedom of speech and opinion, carrying it this far is beyond stupid.

If he's been charged with murder I'd say that it's a clear sign that he'll get in some trouble for this.

Makes you wonder why he decided to do it though.

Jesus, man...

If I was the guy filming, and saw this, I'd be fearing for my life..who knows if this policeman would have turned around, saw the dude filming, and whipped his gun out?

Must have been the camera audio which made it sound like a pellet gun. Wasn't sure cause I didn't think you could get shot so many times and still be running away.

From what I've been reading, getting shot in real life isn't the same as in movies ie with drama. I think it's to do with the adrenaline taking over the body. Also, alot of recording equipment have a max volume cap when recording so as to protect the speakers.

Thought the video looked kinda fake at first but now that it's gaining news coverage it's just sick in the head. Best of luck yanks, you're gonna need it.

This was actually one of my very first thoughts when reading/seeing this news.

They need to mandate all cops to wear cams already. The nature of their job calls for it. If this guy didn't get a video of this, this asshole would have got away with murder.

Unfortunately, we have video evidence of several murders by the police already in recent times, which have resulted in nothing. Going by the trend, there is a strong possibility that not much will happen to Michael Slager.

If Slager manages to somehow walk away, or receives a light penalty, then the future doesn't look good I'm afraid. People are going to be pissed (and rightly so) and relations are gonna be even more tense than they're already are.

Dumb. Most Police officers encourage people to arm themselves. They'll be the first to tell you they can't be everywhere all the time.

Adrenaline + it depends on the stopping power of the gun as well partially.

Also different mechanics per person. Some go into a fight flight response, which is basically adrenaline and the brain only using straight neural pathways between neurons for top speed (reflex) so you can retain motoric functions. These functions are located deeper within the brain anyway.

It's basically the reason that you can drink yourself to hell and wake up with no memory, yet somehow managed to come home, opened the door and find your bed.

Some however.. just go into shock and curl up and die.

He was fearing for his life and still is. And he waited to release the video to see if the police would tell the truth. They did not. A brave guy tbh

Because we as a society give Police Officers the benefit of the doubt in these types of situations, I feel that when one of them is as straightforward as this one is that the penalty applied should be harsher than that applied to a civilian due to the abuse of public trust.

This is, at the very least, a 'life in prison' offense, and I'd support the death penalty if available.

This. The police officers that were aware of what happened and didn't speak up, should also get a heavy punishment.

let's, for a moment, assume that her husband is corrupt, and to an extent that he shoots people in the back, as their running away. therefore, its not too much to assume that she could be influenced by her husband, and in a negative way, right?

I agree. Failure of a law enforcement office to act on knowledge of a capital crime should be a criminal offense.

maybe because that's how marriage works? people statistically marry others as similar to them as possible, including viewpoints. and obviously if she were at all upset by such a thing she would have issues with marrying him to begin with. like why would you marry a terrorist if you have problems with terrorists. i don't see what prejudice has to do with it.

but it also doesn't matter and idk why i posted this

People hide things from their spouses all the time. Who a person is at home isn't always who they are elsewhere.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned the strange contrast here, but it seems rather odd that an admitted terrorist and murderer of women and children in Boston received a fair trial in the same country in which being black is still a capital offense punishable by immediate execution, no questions asked, no judge, no jury, DEAD!!!

Something is seriously wrong.

It'd be hard to hide "I hate black people and want them dead" from a spouse if the spouse isn't incredibly oblivious. Even if he was trying to hide it, you'd leave some clues, drop some pretty obvious hints.
