Cop Who Killed South Carolina Man Laughed After the Shooting

After North Charleston police officer Michael Slager shot and killed Walter Scott, he chuckled and talked about the adrenaline high. "It's pumping," Slager, who is white, told another officer after he killed Scott, who was black. Then he laughed for a few seconds, according to an audio recording The Guardian obtained that paints a fuller picture of what happened during the shooting and in the moments after. Slager pulled over Scott for a routine traffic stop on April 4. The officer, who has since been charged with murder, approached Scott's vehicle and had a fairly brief discussion with him before returning to his car. Moments later, Scott got out of the car and ran.
