North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey and Police Chief Eddie Driggers gave a press conference today in the shooting of Walter Scott. The local audience was very angry, and protesters interrupted the questioning frequently.
• The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) has now taken over the investigation. • Police Chief Driggers stated that no other police officer other than the shooting officer Michael Slager witnessed the immediate event. • Officer Slager has been fired and arrested on a murder charge. • Officer Slager’s wife is 8 months pregnant.
• Mayor Keith Summey stated that immediately body cameras would be ordered and initiated for use on all police officers. • Both Summey and Driggers, together with a Chaplain met with the family of the victim Walter Scott this morning. • Mayor Summey states there is more video than has been made public. • Coroner reports Walter Scott received multiple gunshot wounds to his back – cause of death ‘homicide’.
All of the usual media suspects -those who advocate for a specific narrative- are working the story diligently as they begin the process of fueling anger in the local community and push a larger victim narrative into the national coverage. The arrival of outside agitators should be anticipated within the next 12 to 24 hours.
Toward that end the provocateurs within the media are aided with the familiar voice of Mark O’Mara who has tuned his racism detection psychology meter to new levels of clairvoyance. CNN legal analyst Mark O’Mara told CNN Wednesday morning that Officer Michael Slager shot Walter Scott because of implicit racism.
“We don’t have the racist statutes we had 50 years ago. Now the racism that exists, the biases that exist are more subtle and are happening in that limited part of the brain. For some reason, at least in part because of the color of this man’s skin, that officer felt it was okay [to shoot], it was more threatening, it was more aggressive, even though he was running away.”
Mark O’Mara has become a clairvoyant legal media analyst with the ability to read the mind of the subjects he discusses on television. Remarkable.
For those who thought this story would not gain the interests of the BGI due to the lack of actual controversy, there is a flaw in that consideration.
Against the backdrop of the Ferguson DOJ report and the collapse of the “Hands Up – don’t Shoot” narrative, and against the recent failures in Madison Wisconsin and Charlottesville Virginia; the national BGI need to utilize this shooting to promote their claims of widespread racist police.
In the suburbs of North Charleston South Carolina the Crump signal is being transmitted….. Stay tuned.
