News

A GoFundMe page dedicated to Michael T. Slager, the South Carolina police officer charged with the murder of 50 year old Walter. L Scott, was taken down Wednesday (April 8), reports say.

Kelsea Little, GoFundMe’s public relations manager said the decision to take down the page was due to “violations of the page’s terms and conditions.”

Video footage obtained by the New York Times showed officer Slager, 33, shooting Scott eight times in the back as Scott tried to flea the scene.

The disturbing video caused outrage all over social media has drawn many similarities to the Mike Brown shooting in Ferguson, Mo.
