Trial of the officer who killed Walter Scott ends in mistrial
After four days of deliberation, the judge declared a mistrial in the case of Michael Slager, a white Charleston police officer who is accused of murder in the death of unarmed black man Walter Scott. Cell phone video shows Slager shooting eight times at Scott as he ran away after a traffic stop for a broken tail light, hitting him in the back three times, killing him. Slager's attorney called upon the Big Black Monster defense to argue that Scott was "out of control" and fought Slager with "unusual strength."
