Being real, I’m going to keep this post short today, man. Honestly, I don’t have much to say, son. I’m just happy that some level of justice has been achieved. Now, before I continue, I think it’s a damn shame that this Walter Scott/Michael Slager situation has come to this. I mean, Slager’s bitch ass should’ve been convicted during his trial. Listen, he shot an unarmed Black man while he was running away and planted a taser near his dead body. Look, man, it doesn’t get any worse than that, fam. With all of that being said, I will gladly accept Slager’s plea agreement. In any case, let’s just hope his sentencing is appropriate.
Now, for anyone who missed it, Slager, the officer who killed Walter Scott, took a plea deal in lieu of a new trial. Ultimately, he’s agreed to plead guilty to willfully using excessive force to deprive Scott of his civil rights. To put this into perspective, this charge carries the weight of a second-degree murder charge. So, Slager could end up with life in prison. Look, all I know is, that’s EXACTLY what he deserves, man. At this point, any type of lenient sentence would be a slap in the face of Scott’s memory and his family. All in all, Scott was murdered in cold blood and deserves to be avenged. Hopefully, this deal is a step in the right direction.
In the end, I’m still on the “fuck Michael Slager” bandwagon, son. If it wasn’t for his callous actions, Walter Scott would still be with his family. Listen, a traffic stop shouldn’t have ended with him losing his life. From this point forward, I just pray that Slager rots in the dirtiest depths of prison. LC out.
