No Answers After South Carolina Police Officer’s Dash Cam Is Released.

ht_walter_lamer_scott_01_jc_150407_4x3_992 (1)Well folks! The dashboard cam of a South Carolina police officer who brutally killed an unarmed black man after a traffic stop has been released to the public. After reviewing the tape, it seems like officer Mike Slager did everything by the book. He claim to have stopped the motorist, Walter Scott, because of broken tail light. A passenger was seen in the recording too. Mr. Scott had no insurance on the vehicle and he had no drivers license on him either.  When Slater walked away from the car to check the license plates, Walter attempted to exit his vehicle.  The officer ordered him to get back in the car, which he complied. A couple of minutes pass before Walter Scott opens the car door again. This time he makes a run for it, leaving his passenger sitting in the vehicle.  After Slager and Scott take off running,  they are no longer visible to the cam corder. There is a little bit of audio heard that seems to confirm that the accused murderer tells the victim to “put your hands up” and “stop…on the ground now!”

Y’all watch the video here!
