    The cop's trial will be a classic example of racist jury nullification.

    Why is Scott even out of the car? It's just broken taillight...

    Given your police have to resort to lethal response around 2000 times more often per capita than they do in the UK you are obviously wrong. I'll stick with our own ONS figures rather than your tabloid sensationalism if its all the same v (The Daily Mail 2009 LOL).

    Even without the "video" the "bystander" who took it could still and will be a witness for the state vs Michael Slager_

    Although the credibility of a single videoless witness would definitely come under scrutiny against the word of a cop_

    But for whatever reason; this officer's lies have pretty much obliterated any chances of leniency he might have had_

    And considering the current racial/political climate; Officer Slager would've been better off torching a baby nursery_

    He is soooo screwed!

    He shot an unarmed man 8 times in the back then tried to plant his own taser next to the body. All clear as day on the tape. That is all the evidence needed.

    Heard on the news (TV) that the Mayor is preparing to procure or increase the use of body cameras.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

    Yeah, I saw the video online when the story was just breaking. This morning I saw that same video on a 55" screen and one can clearly see the taser line, but like you said, teh cop is screwed anyway. The department has fired him, his lawyer left him and he's gonna get fried.

    A lot of times, the cop knows he's someone with contraband, so they get 'em out of the car to search it. And this idiot broke the cardinal rule by running because he knew he'd get caught with what he had, and with a record he didn't want to go in again so he bolted - and then he got shot.

The cop yesterday murdered a man. Black or white it is still murder. Skin color should not make one worse then the other.
