    I would like to say I am surprised there are people trying to excuse this cops actions, but I am not surprised. One reason why many police officers feel they can do anything they want and get away with it is because there are people willing to defend and look the other way no matter what actions the police use, or how many liberties and civil rights they, and the politicians are taking away. But then those excusers and security at any cost police defenders will be the 1st to complain about how the US is turning into a police state.

    Sad.

    None of your claptrap justifies the crime committed by the shooter. We will use your definition then... Slager has made himself a FAR worse criminal than the victim ever was. He is a murderer.

    These are examples of how liberalism so often depends on lies. Nobody has justified the cops actions. I have only pointed out that it is unlikely that his acts rise to the level of murder. Pointing that out will likely not stop the lying though, "Hands up, don't shoot".

    I am not a liberal.

    Most people see the real crime here which was the ultra excessive use of deadly force.

    You are falling back on legalistic attacks on the character of the victim. Why? This ceased to be about that around the time Officer Slager planted, aimed and emptied his clip into the back of a man who was not a threat.

    There is a heinous crime here. A man lost his life.

    And for some reason you want to make sure we all understand that by YOUR standard the victim was a "violent criminal".

    You ABSOLUTELY sure the reason is not to "justify the cops actions"?

    I can't frankly think of another reason.

    “It is clear the killing of Walter Scott was unnecessary and avoidable, and my prayers are with the Scott family as they go through this ordeal. The swift action taken by [the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division] and the relevant authorities upon receiving the video shows the severity of this terrible event,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.)

    If the victim had any decency to his character, he would still be alive today. And nobody has justified the cops actions. It's merely a clarification that it is unlikely his actions rise to the level of murder in the legal sense

    He is a police officer, his training means he does not have the excuse of heat of the moment murder nor does 8 shots towards a suspect twenty feet or so away count as heat of the moment.

    He murdered this man, pure and simple and then tried to cover it up by moving the taser, that is malice aforethought IMHO.
    Wilders is a piece of gutter trash, a gutless populist who has no morality to speak of.

    He did that himself when he took off running and subsequently engaged the officer physically. It cannot be denied that had he not run, he would still be alive today.

    This was clearly murder and the cop should be put to death as soon as possible. There is no good reason to take the actions we have all seen. The cop wasn't trying to stop the deadbeat dad but to kill him without just cause.
