South Carolina cop charged with murder after gunning down unarmed black man.

A white police officer in North Charleston, S.C., was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him shooting and killing an apparently unarmed black man, Walter L. Scott in the back while he ran away.

The officer, Michael T. Slager, 33, had said he feared for his life because the man took his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. A video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as the man fled. . If you watch the video closely you can also see the officer pick something up off the ground and drop it near Mr. Scott's body after the shooting. Planting evidence? Maybe. Watch the shocking video below:
