AFRICANGLOBE - A South Carolina prosecutor accused a white former police officer on Thursday of staging a crime scene, where he had just shot dead an unarmed Black motorist, by moving a Taser closer to the handcuffed dead body so he could claim the victim had taken the stun gun. Former North Charleston police officer Michael Slager, 34, is on trial for murder over the 2015 shooting death of Walter Scott, 50. Slager shot Scott five times in the back as Scott fled from a revenue stop allegedly for a broken tail light.
