Murder case of Walter Scott by N.Charleston SC cop Michael Slager

Talk about cold blooded murder. There should be special circumstances when someone so blatantly murders under cover of the law

One, two, three...Time for the apologists and excuse makers to come on the thread. Someone is guarenteed to mention the "high crime rates of Blacks" as a reason this man HAD to be killed...

To be fair - this cop has been charged with murder - and rightly so.

It never ceases to amaze me how cruel humans can be against fellow humans and animals, especially when in the pursuit of money and power.

Ticks all the boxes here, Southern redneck cop, powerless and scared passive black man. Pulled over for a trivial infraction (Broken tail light or some shit like that) shot by racist white cop just wanting to cap a nixxa.

.

All over the BBC and the media here (New Zealand). Seems the department is at least being more proactive and it looks like the cop's life is over pretty much.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

I guess I'll be the first to say it ...

RIP Mr. Walter Scott pray

And credit to those responsible for immediately bringing up murder charges against the cop, there will be justice.

Over 1,500 United States law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty during the past ten years.

A cop is killed in the United States every 58 hours.

Can you name some western countries where there's a higher rate than that?

The NYT video notes that "the officer later said he feared for his life." That old chestnut must come with a nudge and a wink by now, surely.

Also, one thing that strikes me from the video, after the shooting itself: notice that they handcuff the dying man, who is, by this point, face down in the dirt, some time before any semblance of first aid is administered. Speaks volumes about the mindset.

R.I.P. to the deceased 50 yr old

0.) Like Eric Garner, this man should not be dead

1.) Many people resist arrest

2.) suicide by cop??

3.) He had no criminal history. Like a lot of people, he reacted because of fear of being jailed for back child support

4.) Why would we ask about his behaviour? He didn't commit a criminal act against another person like Michael Brown

5.) like a lot of men who own back child support they evade, IRS, Mothers & Children, Work under the Table...

Right after Michael Brown was shot by a cop

1.) Cop was shot and killed by an ex con in ROchester NY

2.) in Pennsylvania an ex con shot and killed 2 sheriffs

3.) in NYC 2 police officers were shot by a man while sitting in their car after he shot his girlfriend in NYC

4.) and there are many more

nod You know the score...but you forgot one response on the list that some will say "He deserved to die".

Some will justify the cop killing this guy

and then some will use the kumbaya claim that 'All lives matter' ...looks like that didn't apply in this incident.

Murder.

And my rules apply. 1) be polite 2) do not lie 3)do not resist 4) do not run

This cop lied to cover it up and seemed to plant evidence. The running did not give any basis to shoot.
Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

Do you realize how many people have to deal with all sorts of personalities ect on their job and still have to muster up courtesey and provide a friendly service?

You're also forgetting when you are pulling people up who are not doing anything wrong you are going to have to deal with pissed off people. deal with it, dont kill them.

That statement has become part of the 'usual' used by cops whose judgement is questioned in these types of killings. This type of cop does not need to be a cop.

You seem to have missed the point. The rules are to get through the encounter alive and maybe not getting a ticket.

A 5th rule would be be as compliant as you can without self incriminating yourself.

Yup, gotta love all these "predictions" of how people will side with the cop. Goes to show how distorted some people's perceptions are.

And have you noticed you and I are the ONLY ones who have expressed RIP to the deceased? Apparently everyone else is more concerned with promoting their agendas. It's almost like they are GLAD the man was murdered, just so they can get an opportunity to say "I told you so". Sad. disbelief

Are you saying the African American cop in the video wouldn't have done anything about it? Or are we just going to ignore him because he's African American? hmmm

1.) I never said you weren't allowed to express an opinion, why are you going there

2.) I didn't agree, by saying no one in this thread said he deservered to die

3.) R.I.P. Walter Scott

You should get out alive, period.

Forced to be polite to someone who is being rude to you cant be healthy. express yourself.

The cop was charged with Murder? Huh and I thought cops were never charged with Murder!! Typical BS responses, the cops should ALWAYS be charged with MURDER REGARDLESS of the EVIDENCE? No Debate just CHARGED with MURDER. BECAUSE PEOPLE THAT CONSTANTLY LOSE DEBATES ARE THAT WAY. lol

I think we can all collectively say.

Please learn the difference between perception and prediction.

So is Nash another cute nickname for me? I kinda like "Pokemon" more. biggrin
