[Spoiler (click to open)]Walter Scott was an unarmed black man who died in April 2015 after he was shot 5 times in the back while fleeing from a South Carolina police officer after a traffic stop. The officer involved, Michael Slager, was charged with murder after a video of the incident was released & contradicted his intial report. Slager originally radioed a dispatcher saying Scott grabbed his Taser; the video shows Scott 15-20 feet away from Slager when the first shot was fired, and show Slager dropping a Taser beside Scott's body.
