Officer Michael Slager Charged With Murder After Video Surfaces

In North Charleston, South Carolina, police officer Michael Slager has been arrested and charged with murder for the shooting death of an apparently unarmed Black man, Walter Scott. Last night, the New York Times released cellphone footage of the incident, which was taken by an anonymous bystander, that appears to contradict Slager’s version of the shooting Saturday, Rachel Maddow of MSNBC reports.
