Video Evidence Brings Murder Charges in SC Officer-Involved Shooting

Hosted by  • 

Cellphone video has made a police shooting in North Charleston, South Carolina into a national story. Police Chief Eddie Driggers says that's what led to murder charges against Officer Michael Slager, who was fired today. "The honesty comes from my heart. I have watched the video, and I was sickened by what I saw."

North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey says the case has already led to a major investment in 150 additional body cameras "so that every officer – that is on the street in uniform – will have a body camera." Ryan Grim, Washington bureau chief for the Huffington Post, has more on the story.
