South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) Leaking Walter Scott Shooting Evidence To Media….

Here comes the sketchy political problem. The Guardian has published Dash Cam audio conversation(s) between South Carolina Police Officer Michael Slager immediately after the shooting of Walter Scott.

According to The Guardian:  “Patrolman Michael Slager appeared to laugh nervously in the discussion with a senior officer after fatally shooting Scott in North Charleston on 5 April. A recording of their conversation was obtained by the Guardian“.

There is only one way for the Guardian to gain such a recording.  Directly from the investigative unit of South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), the state entity doing the investigative oversight.

SLED is not a police agency – they are a political entity:

The primary mission of the State Law Enforcement Division is to provide quality manpower and technical assistance to law enforcement agencies and to conduct investigations on behalf of the state as directed by the Governor and Attorney General.  (link)

The South Carolina Walter Scott shooting -by Police Officer Michael Slager- is absolutely filled with intentionally missing elements in an effort by ALL INTERESTED PARTIES to sell a narrative useful for their purposes.

walter scott 1south carolina 3

What does that mean? It means this is not just a legal issue; it means the shooting is being manipulated for a political benefit; it means the substance in the media reports are there to sell a purposeful narrative from one singular perspective.

The State of South Carolina appears to have acted, quickly forcefully, and with extreme prejudice against Officer Slager.   Exceptional political expediency – Most likely because they feared a backlash from the Santana video and wanted to avoid a Ferguson-style fiasco.

We previously shared concerns the severity of their initial approach was so forceful, they were in actuality setting themselves up for an even worse case scenario if the facts did not support their willingness approach.

They have essentially eliminated due process for Officer Slager.  They have also painted themselves into a corner and set the expectations too high for the mob.

Now, as details begin to surface, what drove our initial concern is now possible.

In the face of information that may fundamentally change the entire paradigm of this case, the political apparatus is going to have to start walking their initial claims backward.  OR they are going to be forced to join ideologically with the grievance industry and railroad Michael Slager.  The leaking of investigative material implies the latter is the chosen approach.

Just like the Zimmerman case, the approach by the State could get really ugly when their claims, and appeasement approach toward prosecution, do not deliver the desired outcome.

Yeah, for some reason this picture comes directly to mind….

    I came across some interesting information for Treepers to explore…

    A .pdf press release dated April 9, 2015 from SLED, explaining that their investigation of the Scott shooting is continuing after quickly realizing that “something not right about what happened in that encounter.” Possibly their way of covering for the “premature release of specific details”?:

    I also found some cumulative data, linked below, that may explain the political focus on immediately arresting and charging the law enforcement officer. I haven’t had time to go through it, but it may reveal a pattern of practice in how LEOs are investigated. Keep in mind, as Sundance noted, SLED is a political entity directed by the Governor’s Office and State Attorney General.
    SLED press releases and arrest warrants show a multitude of law enforcement officer arrests:

    found at this South Carolina criminal defense blog: http://www.trialtheory.com/

    My understanding is that in the south, law enforcement jobs are ‘at will’ employment so Officer Slager has no civil service protections. That’s not his only vulnerability. Although Officer Slager’s union, the South Carolina Law Enforcement Officers Association (SCLEOA), provides legal representation to its members, he has been abandoned by them because his case “does not meet the SCLEOA criteria of a meritorious defense case”. A spokesman from SCLEOA said, “The swift decision to charge the officer demonstrates that law enforcement will not tolerate the tarnishing of the badge and oaths we all take so seriously.” GoFundMe has rejected a campaign to raise money for Officer Slager. So he is entirely on his own, dependent on a competent defense, with whatever money he can gather to pay for it.
    http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/apr/08/michael-slager-south-carolina-officer-walter-scott-fired

    It remains to be seen if the evidence exonerates Officer Slager’s actions. What is evident, though, is that he has a lot to handle, and a baby on the way. The police department claims they will continue to provide medical insurance UNTIL his pregnant wife gives birth. After that he and his family will likely be on their own.

      I find the shutting down of all avenues of support – especially gofundme – very interesting. It seems to me that that aspect is a lesson well-learned in Ferguson and that the puppetmasters made sure, ahead of time, that it wouldn’t happen again. We all saw how important gofundme was to show the true voice of the people in both Ferguson and the Memories Pizza cases v. what the media and the crusaders were selling.

      And people think cops don’t need unions. Cops are just about the only people in America that routinely have to tell our ever more spoiled and self- centered public “No.”

      “No, you can’t drive 20 mph over the posted speed limit. No, you can’t get high and stupid in public. No, you can’t blast your stereo at ungodly volumes at 3 AM. No, you can’t smack your wife in the mouth because she burned dinner.”

      Telling a society increasingly made up of perpetual adolescents “No, you can’t let your freak flag fly,” and then having to back that up with physical force is not and will never be politically popular. Without some sort of entity, like a union, to stand in the gap, the people charged with telling society “No” will be quickly thrown under the bus in the name of political expediency.

    There is a big underlying story of why Scott was with a known criminal with long rap sheet out behind some stores like a pawn shop. There has to be some evidence of drugs or criminal intent somewhere or get the passenger to roll on Scott… he’s not there to complain. They were up to something for sure. What was it. The cop smelled it out immediately. When Jessica was killed the cops did a lousy job of securing the scene hope they went over this scene closely and the car.

Julison’s sems to have decided that the family should drop the whole “targeted because of the shiny new rims” angle.

      So that Saturday morning he jumped into his car, picked up a friend from work and headed to an auto-parts store a few miles away. He called his girlfriend: He wouldn’t be long.

        “Julison’s latest narrative is he was buying parts for his new Mercedes”

        That may be Julison overplaying his hand.

        How is it clear that it was Scott’s INTENT to go to an auto parts store? Julison certainly hasn’t talked to Scott. Maybe he’s talked to Mr Pierre about the intended destination. Maybe.

        Maybe Julison got that tidbit from Scott’s family. Maybe.

        Remember, Scott was pulled over out of traffic by Slager for the improper tail light (not burnt out, but white instead of the required red).

        Who knows where Scott was heading in traffic?

        Scott pulled into that auto parts store to come to a stop, but was that truly his end destination, or was it the first safe place to pull in out of traffic in response to police lights in his mirror? Along Scott’s entire drive, Slager just coincidentally happens to pull Scott over exactly at his final destination?

        To me, it sounds like Julison has misstepped. In his eagerness to explain the circumstances that we see, he’s explained the circumstance of the auto parts store as if it’s necessarily the INTENT – the intended destination.

        Maybe that’s true. Maybe not.

        If not, then it’s also not suspicious that Scott and Pierre were “behind some stores like a pawn shop”. If they were there by intent, it might be suspicious. But not if that was simply the location they pulled over in response to police lights.

        I’d be more inclined to think that Scott and Pierre were on their way to who-knows-where to do who-knows-what. Maybe legal. Maybe not.

    As a result, Savage filed a motion for discovery, and Freedom of Information Act requests with the S.C. Law Enforcement Division, North Charleston Police Chief Eddie Driggers, and Charleston County Coronor Rae Wooten.”

My guess is he was court mandated to attend Mr. Singlebury’s program.

    Looking at the investigations overseen by SLED special agent Lt. Charles Ghent reveals his determination that police are murdering black men over simple vehicle equipment violations. Just like in the Scott case. Lt. Ghent is a (supervising?) special agent named in the Officer Slager arrest warrant, listed next to the name of the arresting (junior?) investigator Angela Peterson. He just finished up with the prosecution of a white Chief of Police who killed a black man over an argument about the man’s daughter being ticketed for a broken tail light.

    The violent behavior of the black men against the police officers did not preclude the guilt of the white police officers in Lt Ghent’s investigative determination of murder. Is this really an epidemic of racist white police murdering blacks or a pattern of political prosecutions aided by ambitious investigators? I really don’t know, but it makes me very curious. Might make Attorney Savage curious too.
