    The victim couldn't even run fast.
    Guess the cop just wanted to shoot someone.

    That was so cold blooded and without justification that they ought to go after the death penalty. One bad execution deserves another

    When he runs up to the victim, he tosses something onto the ground beside him from about waist-high.

    How long until some of those Best Fans In Baseball rise up and demand the Cardinals place a minor-league affiliate in Charleston?

    From Sunday:

    Police and witnesses say Scott tried to run from Slager before turning to fight for the officer's Taser. It was during that scuffle that the officer fired his service weapon, fatally wounding Scott.

    According to an incident report, officers heard Slager say over the radio that he had deployed his Taser and "seconds later" he said "Shots fired and the subject is down. He took my Taser."

    Attorney David Aylor released a statement Monday that reiterated the police report.

    “This is a very tragic event for all of the families," Aylor said. "I believe once the community hears all the facts of this shooting, they'll have a better understanding of the circumstances surrounding this investigation. Officer Slager believes he followed all the proper procedures and policies of the North Charleston Police Department.”

    Kudos to whoever videotaped this. If they hadn't, these cops would surely get away with it.
