It saddens my heart especially as a parent of boys to hear about this. On Tuesday, a white police officer from North Charleston, S.C. was charged with murder after a video surfaced showing him shooting in the back and killing an apparently unarmed black man while the man ran away.

The officer, Michael T. Slager, 33, said he had feared for his life because the man had taken his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. A video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as the man, Walter L. Scott, 50, fled. The North Charleston mayor announced the state charges at a news conference Tuesday evening.

Wow! When will this stop, READ MORE DETAIL:
