Should the police officer who shot Walter Scot be put on trial for murder?Posted by: Squirrelnuts57
On a routine traffic stop, police officer Michael Slager shot Walter Scot in the back as he ran. The officer reports that he mentioned the warrant for overdue child support payments, then Scot "grabbed my taser" and began running, causing Officer Slager to fire. He is now facing charges of murder and faces the death penalty.
It looked like the officer tazed Walter and that made him run, then the officer shot him till Walter fell.
He was shot 5 times in the back, and the the cop planted the taser on him.

He shot an unarmed man, from an unreasonable distance. Then planted a taser on him to cover it up.
Well have to look at more evidence to be sure but as of right now it looks like this man was murdered in cold blood.
lethal injection is too easy
yes well for one he kilt somebody who doesn't' deserve to be kilt
He shouldn't be put on trial guys, HE SHOULD BE IN PRISON RIGHT NOW!!!!
Completely wrong and needs to be taken further.
Let me be clear. I am the son of a police officer and I have the utmost respect for law enforcement . I do not think that the officer was justified in the shooting of the vic simply because he (the vic) was (to the officers knowledge) unarmed and the officer could have chased the man down and arrested him instead of executing him in the street.
