Walter Scott shooting

The police treatment of suspected triple murderer Matthew Bernard stood in contrast to how cops responded to Walter Scott or any number of other unarmed Black men gunned down by law enforcement.

Former cop Michael T. Slager pleaded guilty Tuesday to violating the civil rights of unarmed motorist Walter Scott, who he fatally shot more than two years ago in North Charleston, South Carolina.

A judge has scheduled the retrial for ex-Charleston cop Michael Slager in the shooting death of Walter Scott for March 1 after a mistrial was declared when a deadlocked jury didn't reach a unanimous decision .

Michael Slager testified in his own defense on Tuesday, getting grilled by prosecutors in the high-profile murder trial in the death of Walter Scott, an unarmed black man who was shot five times.

Michael Slager, the ex-cop who shot Walter Scott, asks the court to drop his murder charge. The defense team cites double-jeopardy.
