7. I think this is an audio file of your brother on this:

North Charleston NAACP ‘Not Satisfied’ With Police Officer’s Murder Charge

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

In this frame from video provided by Attorney L. Chris Stewart, representing the family of Walter Lamer Scott, Scott appears to be running away from City Patrolman Michael Thomas Slager, right, in North Charleston, S.C. (Courtesy of L. Chris Stewart via AP)

You can see that Scott is running, and not in any way coming at the officer. Not do I think he planned to return. All this over a broken tail light.


That link led me here:

‘Black Lives Matter’ Chants Heard In North Charleston

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

There are many prominent black voices and the groups formed to combat these abuses.


Then I found this:

Police Chief ‘Sickened’ By S.C. Shooting Video

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

This is the fruit of the movement that grew out of Ferguson:

A white South Carolina police officer who claimed he killed a black man in self-defense has been fired and faces murder charges after a bystander’s video recorded him firing eight shots at the man’s back as he ran away. The city’s mayor also said he’s ordered body cameras to be worn by every single officer on the force.

The officer, Michael Thomas Slager, has been fired, but the town will continue to pay for his health insurance because his wife is eight months pregnant, said North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey, who called it a tragedy for two families.

Police Chief Eddie Diggers said he was “sickened” by what he saw on the video, but his explanations were repeatedly interrupted by shouts of “no justice, no peace!” and other hard questions that he said he couldn’t answer. The mayor then took back the podium and threatened to close the news conference.

Protests began within hours of the murder charge against Slager, which was announced Tuesday, the same day the video was released to the media. About 75 people gathered outside City Hall in North Charleston, led by a Black Lives Matter, a group formed after the fatal shooting of another black man in Ferguson, Missouri.


From the Book of Genesis 4:10:

But the LORD said, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is crying out to me from the ground!"


Look at the green grass and trees where Scott was mowed down. Now his blood is crying out from that ground.
