The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division has released several dash cam videos from Walter J. Scott’s traffic stop, which depicts moments before he was shot to death by Officer Michael Slager.
In the video, you can see Slager asking for Scott’s license and registration, and Scott admitted to not being the owner of the car. Scott told the officer he was in the process of buying the car, gave his documents to Slager, and the officer went back to the car to run the information.
While Slager was running the information, you can see Scott stepping out of the car, but getting back in. Moments later, Scott ran, with the officer following in pursuit.
The video doesn’t show the actual shooting, and you can’t hear the gun firing in the background. It’s a shame that the outcome of this traffic stop ended in Scott’s death.
