A white South Carolina police officer was charged with murder Tuesday in the death of a 50 year old black man after pulling him over for a routine traffic stop for a faulty brake light.
The video is captured as Walter Scott is seen running away from the officer Micheal Slager, when the officer clearly not in danger shoots eight times striking the man in the back. The video then shows the office walking over to the deceased man and telling him to put his hands behind his back when the man is clearly already dead. A relative of Scott says that he was probably running away because he owed child support, which in South Carolina, can cause you to go to jail. The person who filmed the video has yet to come forward.
