April 8 , 2015
A white US police officer from South Carolina has been charged with murder following the release of a video that shows him shooting an unarmed black man.
Michael Slager, who works in the North Charleston police department, has been arrested.
The video, which was filmed by a passer-by, appears to show Walter Lamer Scott, the black victim, run away from Slager before he is shot dead. Anthony Scott, the victim’s brother, said that the “truth” about the incident had been revealed because of the video.
