"A judge declared a mistrial Monday afternoon in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man at the hands of a South Carolina former patrolman, after the jury said they could not come to a unanimous verdict. ... The defense in ex-patrolman Michael Slager's the five-week trial claimed that he feared for his life when 50-year-old Walter Scott got control of the officer's stun gun and pointed it at him. But Scott was shot five times in the back while running from Slager during a routine traffic stop." [editor's note: And the shooting, as well as Slager's placement of his stun gun next to the body to support his fake "he got my Taser" story, was caught on video. There was no reasonable doubt here - TLK] (12/05/16)
