Walter L. Scott—Shot IN THE BACK, MURDERED by Killer Cop

Updated April 8, 2015 | Revolution Newspaper |


ANOTHER killing of an unarmed Black man by a white police officer. This time in North Charleston, South Carolina on Saturday, April 4.

The murdering cop, Michael T. Slager, stopped 50-year-old Walter L. Scott—the reason, supposedly for a broken taillight, according to the police report. Scott runs away from the car and the cop chases him, then fires his taser at Scott. Slager shoots at Scott eight times as he is running away, hitting him several times in the back. Then he says, and you can hear it in the video, “put your hands behind your back.” Then you see the cop walk over and put what looks like a taser next to Scott’s body. Later, his LIE to try and justify the murder is that Scott tried to take his taser.

Everyone can see in the video that this was clearly cold-blooded MURDER. Even commentators and legal experts on TV are saying this was clearly a homicide.  

The system hasn’t been able to get away this time with just declaring “justifiable homicide.” They had to arrest the cop for murder. The people must now DEMAND: Indict, convict, send the killer cop to jail. The whole damn system is guilty as hell!

ANOTHER killing of an unarmed Black man by a white police officer. ANOTHER reason to SHUT IT DOWN ON APRIL 14!
