    Prosecution of 2nd Officer in Walter Scott Shooting Is Sought

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/13/us...T.nav=top-news

    In a two-sentence report filed after the shooting, Officer Habersham wrote that he had “attempted to render aid to the victim by applying pressure to the gunshot wounds” and by helping to coordinate the emergency response.

    But critics of Officer Habersham questioned his account and said video evidence indicated that he had done little to assist Mr. Scott. They also suggest that Officer Habersham omitted significant information from his report — for instance, that Mr. Slager dropped an item, possibly his Taser stun gun, near Mr. Scott after the shooting. Officer Habersham could not be reached for comment on Sunday.
    A 2 sentence report on a shooting?

    A 2 sentence report on a Police killing speaks volumes, and all negative towards the Department, the leadership of the Police, the city and the State.
    It speaks to routine.

    Is falsifying a police report illegal? Undoubtedly it is against regulation and a fireable offense. I think it should be illegal but I didn't know it was.

    An official document that is and can used as evidence, I would hazard a guess yes it would be.
    Though I am sure we have more knowledge people on the Board that can answer that directly.

    From the NY Times article:

    Officials here have not ruled out that other officers, including Officer Habersham, could be disciplined, but the municipal authorities are not leading the criminal inquiry into the shooting. Instead, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is investigating.

    On Sunday afternoon, though, Mr. Summey, the mayor, supported some of Officer Habersham’s account.

    “I haven’t seen all of the videos yet, but I know that the one officer that arrived secondly did try to prevent the bleeding,” Mr. Summey said. “If it was fast enough, I don’t know, but he was directing the ambulance in. I know that part; what he saw, I don’t know.”

    Also of note is that America's most notorious race-hustler spoke at Mr. Scott's funeral. But of course.

    Well he is everywhere but that does not change a thing. He was also at the NY shooting where the family sent the POS on his way. How does that change the killing.
    How does a killing merit a 2 line report? Would you find that acceptable?

    The facts will speak for themselves.
    1 point- before the Chief of Police went live on TV do you think he did or did not see this 2 line report on a deadly shooting?

    Neither you nor I know what departmental policy is and whether Habersham was advised by his superiors to say as little as possible until expert counsel had been brought in by his department. We don't know whether he subsequently has written a lengthier report or who has interviewed him or anything else. I am unwilling to rush to judgment without more facts. How about you?

    I think everybody needs to wait for more facts to come in and not rush to judgment about Habersham.
