Police Dashcam Video Expected As Soon As Today
In North Charleston, S.C., investigators are expected to release police dashcam video as soon as today, in order to try to shed more light on the struggle last weekend between white police officer Michael Slager and black motorist Walter Scott, who was shot in the back and killed by Slager after a traffic stop.
There are still unanswered questions about the incident, including what happened with the officer’s Taser. Andrew Knapp has been covering the story for the Charleston Post & Courier and joins Here & Now’s Robin Young with details.
