Lawyer: Slager made a “poster child” for police misconduct

Was Walter Scott to blame for his own police shooting? Or did cop Michael Slager murder a fleeing unarmed man who posed no danger? Those were the closing arguments Wednesday. CHARLESTON, South Carolina—A defense lawyer claimed his client was unfairly made a “poster boy” for police misconduct. A prosecutor countered that Michael Slager wrongfully killed an unarmed man who repeatedly tried to flee custody and posed no danger. Now a jury will decide whether the former South Carolina policeman is guilty of the murder or manslaughter of Walter Scott, a 51-year-old motorist shot five times in the back after running from a traffic stop and struggling with Slager on April 4, 2015, in North Charleston, South Carolina.
