Michael Slager Sentenced For Walter Scott Shooting

The ex-cop who gunned down unarmed Walter Scott as he ran away has been handed a hefty sentence. Michael Slager, whose trial was initially deadlocked after a single juror “could not and would not reach a decision”, has been sentenced to 20 years for Scott’s murder.

Slager pleaded guilty to violating Scott’s civil rights when he shot and killed him in 2015. Federal prosecutors were seeking a life sentence for Slager who they charged with second-degree murder. His lawyers, however, argued that he should face voluntary manslaughter.

While he for DAMN SURE should’ve gotten life, it’s incredible to see a cop face some kind of justice.

What do YOU think about Slager getting 20 years for the Walter Scott shooting???
