    I bet that officer does less than 5 years hard time - at worse. Anyone disagree?
    You're right. Cops are a privileged class in this country like politicians and other government employees.

    Yup, he lied to cover his ass. Shocking, huh?

    Another of many reasons to advocate body cams on all cops.

    Being arrested for, and convicted of are two completely different animals. This is America. Just because we all see it one way doesn't mean the prosecutors and the defense lawyers wont spin it another way.

    Now the campaign begins of the police dept making Walter Scott look like the bad guy. There will be talk of his arrest/criminal record (if any). Then it will be the weed in his system (if any). Then the character assassination will begin. All in the attempt to create another poor victim of this cop. All a cop has to say is "I felt that my like was in danger...." And everyone automaticly believes him. Had this video not been revealed...he would (and still, may) get away with it.

    Straight up murder. That's crazy ****. There's definitely good cops out there (mostly young, new ones) but having been robbed numerous times by them on the highway and now seeing this.. Damn. Laws need to be passed ensuring there aren't outright idiots like this guy and the guys that choked that fat guy to death previously in NYC. That and I'm sick of having to have my attorney squash every good 'ol boy f**k face cop that give me $500 tickets.

    WTF day and age are these morons thinking they're in? Don't they know everyone is recording their bosses, recording everything now? Amazingly stupid.

    cold blooded murder IMHO, but arresting and charging is step one, now he has to be convicted for his crime.

    Body cams on cops are 100% worthless. The police depts. would just doctor the body cam videos or else the cops would turn off the cams and/or censor specific footage.

    In the event body cam videos were available for the public to see, there would be huge discrepancies in the video picked up by those cams and those picked up by bystander cameras and/or cell phones.
