Walter Scott was shot 8 times in the back while he was running away from the SC officer during a traffic stop. The officer stated he killed Scott due to self defense but a witness captured the whole tragedy. You can clearly see Scott running away from the officer. Footage shows the taser, that was found near Scott’s body, was in fact on the ground near the officer when the shots were fired.
Many ask why didn’t he use the taser instead? Why was he shooting anyway? Some ask why was Scott running?
