Cop is being charged with murder. Claims victim tried to take his tazer. Is seen dropping an object near the corpse before handcuffing it...

Thoughts?

I am glad he is being charged with murder.


 

The video shows an interaction between Scott and the officer, with the two briefly touching near their hands before the shooting.

It shows Scott falling after the shots and then the officer slowly walking toward Scott and ordering the man to put his hands behind his back. When Scott doesn't move, Slager pulls his arms back and cuffs his hands. Then he walks briskly back to where he fired the shots, picks up an object, and returns the 30 feet or so back to Scott before dropping the object by Scott's feet, the video shows.

I wonder how this incident will further the national dialog over police brutality. Like, what if there hadn't been a video shot?

Would this cop be getting away with this? Of course, his actions are still "alleged" until he's had his day in court, so I'm admittedly questioning the situation based on my own prematured judgement. It sure looks like he shot a guy for no good reason, then quickly, coolly enacted a plan to try to get out of it.

Will there be steps taken, in the wake of this and other recent wrongful shootings, to always monitor cops, somehow?

Guilty. Showed intent to defraud by moving the TAZER (presuming that's what it was). Shot a guy who posed NO threat at the time of the shooting. He should go to prison for as long as the law allows. Not 1st degree but should easily be convicted of 2nd degree. Guilty.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Hang on now. We don't know much about the victim. Perhaps he was a thug who'd earlier that day tried to rob a store, or maybe he had skittles, cough syrup, and a can of fruit juice cocktail on him.

That cop just fucked it up for the rest of the cops. Nail him.


I don't know, but it's been said: You do or don't and then you're dead
So climb away, get higher, son- never straight, just move ahead
Know, my child, that there is no devil seekin' to cause guilt in the hearts to men.
No evil, save blind faith, ignorance, and the desire for the unprepared to blame others for the devastation left in the wake of change.
Fear not the movement of the heavens above or the earth below for change is what we are, my child.
And if we are reflections of the divine we must roll with these changes, for we are these changes.

Did the cop yell "stop or I`ll shoot?"  

 

You don`t have the right to flee from a cop, disobey an order, nor resist arrest.

No you don't, but it doesn't excuse using deadly force.

Of course, especially over a traffic stop - the cop deserves to be charged with murder - there was no need to draw a weapon in the first place

 

BUT...in the back of my mind if one could simply run away from cops without fear of being harmed (at best)...every real thug would just run away...

According to my minimal law enforcement training, you are allowed to shoot a fleeing person if they are: (1) a suspected or known felon and (2) if you deem they pose an immediate threat to the public - e.g. armed and dangerous felon fleeing toward a populated area, from an officer making a warrant arrest.

I think Pumpy said once if he says "hands up" you better put your hands up....he`d didn`t elaborate much but the tone of the thread was he`d have to shoot.

Just watched the presser. Painful.

 

I'd like to know why the guy was running away, before i go any further.

The guy probably feared for his life after the initial confrontation, but...

 

....you`d think with all the publicity surrounding cop shootings, the last thing a black person would do is run from a white cop, after an altercation already took place.
