Police Officer Michael Slager Sentenced To 20-Years In Prison Over Shooting Death Of Walter Scott (Video)

December 11. 2017

Former police officer, Michael Slager, has been sentenced to 20-years in prison for the shooting death of unarmed motorist, Walter Scott. In 2015, Slager pulled over Scott due to a broken taillight. Scott fled the vehicle fearing the worst in South Carolina, a state with severe racial division. Slager chased Scott on foot, shot at him from the back 8 times, went up to the dying man, pushed his face into the ground to suffocate him, then planted the gun beside the body. 5 bullets fatally struck Scott in the back.

Slager called in the incident stating Scott attacked him and stole his gun, which was a lie. Unbeknownst to Slager, a civilian, Feidin Santana, saw Scott running from the police officer and began recording the incident with his mobile phone camera. The video was chilling and a terrible reminder that some police officers do frame people for crimes they did not commit.
