The cop who shot Walter Scott can eerily be heard laughing immediately after the fatal shooting.
Audio has surfaced of the cop who killed Walter Scott laughing and admitting to experiencing a rush of adrenaline in the minutes following the deadly shooting in South Carolina earlier this month.
Michael Slager, 33, can be heard laughing nervously while talking with a senior officer. The conversation was picked up by the dashcam in the officer’s patrol car following the incident in North Charleston on April 5.
The dashcam footage showing Scott, 50, a Coast Guard veteran, being pulled over for a broken tail light just minutes before Slager shot him, was released to the media on Thursday.
The camera continued to record for another hour and a recording of the audio feed, including the conversation between Slager and a senior officer, was obtained by The Guardian.
‘By the time you get home, it would probably be a good idea to kind of jot down your thoughts on what happened,’ the senior officer said. ‘You know, once the adrenaline quits pumping.’
‘It’s pumping,’ Slager said, laughing.
The senior officer replied: ‘Oh yeah. Oh yeah.’
