Re: “With so many eyes on the street, justice today might rely only on a video

It seems to me the central question is what about Scott caused Slager's "fear" from a man who was obviously trying to get away from him. Scott didn't attack Slager; he ran away. Whatever caused the altercation and whatever happened during it, was due to Scott's not wanting to deal with Slager. When the shots were fired, he was 18 feet away. I am not one to yell "racist" at every opportunity, but whether or not Slager was even aware of it, if you are honest you have to ask how much Scott' being Black contributed to Slager's "fear" for his life. t is almost impossible to deny the racial elements in the case.
