Enhanced video of the Walter Scott shooting shows that there is more to the story than the media is portraying.
On the first day we saw the North Charleston, South Carolina, shooting video of Walter Scott by Officer Michael Slager we were as shocked as everyone. However, as research now indicates there is much more to the story.
Discovery of the full radio dispatch recording by North Charleston Police, and with the Dash Cam video(s) from two vehicles, Diwataman was able to assemble a video syncing all of the data into one format easily understood.
The sync’d video IS BRILLIANT and shows the length of time in the chase, confrontation, physical struggle between Officer Slager and Walter Scott, and the first aid administered by the responding officers. Additionally, by adding a running clock from the moment Scott begins to run from the vehicle scene you can see the length of the struggle:
You can clearly see and hear this was not a short fight prior to Officer Slager using his firearm to shoot Walter Scott. But that fact alone is not the most important discovery in the past 24 hours.
What is potentially a game changer occurs when you review Officer Slager stating he had lost control/custody of the x26 Taser he deployed to restrain a non compliant Scott – and recognize the Taser actually appears to have been used against him.
At least one dart appears lodged in the upper torso, chest, shirt of Officer Slager.
