Maintaining The Fraudulent Narrative At All Costs – Walter Scott Shooting Passenger’s Attorney Selling Another Story Now…

The Scheme Team is working overtime now to keep attention away from Walter Scott aspects that would deconstruct their narrative.

attorney mark peper

EARLIER: “Walter was a dear friend, and I miss him every day,” [Pierre Fulton] stated in a release from Charleston attorney Mark Peper. “Over the past five years, he helped me to become a better man and showed me the value of hard work. I’ll never know why he ran, but I know he didn’t deserve to die. Please keep Walter and his family in your prayers and respect my privacy moving forward.”

Peper said in the release that it will be the only statement his client makes before any court proceeding. (link)

Well, “the only statement” UNLESS the sketchy stuff comes out which might work against our scripted narrative. If the sketchy stuff comes out, well, then we’ll just have to sell some ‘nuther stuff. Like:

Walter Scott - Passenger - Pierre Fulton(Via Daily Mail) Walter Scott and his passenger were looking forward to having a cookout when he was pulled over and shot dead by a South Carolina police officer, it has emerged.

Scott, 50, and Pierre Fulton, his friend of several years, had met for breakfast on April 4 before Scott drove him to a church so Fulton could collect a bag of vegetables.

He then took Fulton home to drop off the bag there before they both headed over to Scott’s house.

‘They were heading to Walter Scott’s house to eventually have a cookout that afternoon,’ said Fulton’s attorney, Mark Peper.

But as they returned home, their car was pulled over for a broken tail light in North Charleston. (read more)

    Is that what they call smoking pot, crack, or some other drug down there in South Carolina? A “cookout”?

    I thought the story was that Scott was on his way to work. Saturday 9:30am, OK, a lot of people work on Saturday. But now it was a “cookout”. I see. And they were stopping at an auto parts store for the “cookout”?

    This would be super funny if it weren’t for the fact that there’s a guy sitting in jail with the rest of his life on the line, and a frightened set of family and friends outside waiting to find out what happens next.

      Here’s another version of the story from the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

      Following the stop “there was never a conversation between Pierre and Walter regarding the reason for the stop, what his intentions were – anything along those lines,” Peper said.

      Scott was behind $18,000 in his child support payments and family members have said he may have run because he was worried about going to jail.

      Peper says that from where Scott’s car was parked, his client could see Slager chase after Scott. “As they turned the corner, he wasn’t able to see anything that occurred,” he said.

      Peper said while his client heard the Taser followed by the gunshots “he doesn’t recall the timing or how many seconds between it. All that’s a bit foggy.”

      Peper said the traffic stop occurred after Scott and Fulton went to Hardees for breakfast and then went to a food pantry and dropped off some food at Fulton’s house.

      “They were heading to Walter Scott’s house to eventually have a cookout that afternoon,” Peper said.

      Family members said earlier the two were headed to an auto parts store at the time. Peper said they may have had errands planned but his client said they were eventually heading to Scott’s house.

        This is a great website. While this isn’t a funny matter there is a lot of funny comeback comments at times.

        The family said Walter knew he was buying a car that needed work. The coworker who Walter took for a ride in the days before the shooting said the car was in excellence shape. It looks in good shape from the video but this does not mean it didn’t need parts or that they weren’t headed to the auto parts store on the day of the shooting.

        Going for breakfast at Hardees or picking up and dropping off food, and where they were really headed to, or coming from, before being stopped by the cop has nothing to do with the shooting. Some of you think they were doing a dope deal and Walter ran because he had dope or a weapon on him. No dope or weapons were found.

        Peper’s client hasn’t made any other statement, Peper did.

        I was the first to point out, several threads ago, that the passenger heard Scott’s side of the conversation with Scott’s mom. There is no evidence yet to suggest Scott told his mom he was going to run so the passenger would not know he was going to run. Scott’s mom sent her grandson down to where Scott was stopped, but he did not arrive in time before Scott ran, so I do not think Scott told his mom he was going to run even thought his family admits that he has ran before. I think he paniced after the cop would not allow Scott to speak to him when he tried to get out of the car the first time. Then he bailed and ran without telling the passenger he was going to run.

        He was in fear of being arrested for unpaid child support, and he just told the cop he was paying for the car on Monday which means he has money. He feared his would go to jail, they would take his money that he just admitted to having, and he would not be able to buy the car because they would take his money, which would leave him with no car to get to work because his van broke down. Now he could also lose his job for being in jail and/or for missing work because he no longer has a vehicle to get to work.

        I believe all of these thoughts were rapidly running through Scott’s mind and he paniced and ran.

            Armie – I did not notice the phone but if you did that’s a great point. Scott’s mom would’ve sent the grandson down there right after Scott told her that the cop would not allow him to get out of the car to speak to the cop or allow the mom to speak to the cop by phone.

            dalethorn – According to his family Walter ran before and he was never shot. He wasn’t expecting to get shot here, either. If he run and gets away he is not going to jail on a Saturday morning and gets to attend the cookout – BBQ. If he gets away and the police contact him later he could deny it was him who was driving and claim someone stole his licence and the person who was driving and handed the cop the licence was the person who stole his licence. The cops would’ve still grabbed the passenger but the passenger could say he has no clue who was driving because he was hitchhiking and the driver just picked him up.

            Nevertheless, we know he’s in total panic mode because there was nowhere to run to yet he ran anyway. He also knew more cops were on the way. But no drugs or weapons were found. For me, he’s running for the reasons I gave until someone can prove otherwise.

          He was concerned about being arrested so he ran from a cop who had his driver license? That doesn’t pass the logic test. Running from a cop and fighting with same cop means only one thing – “I’m so screwed that life is over with, etc.” Guys facing jail for child support don’t throw their lives away, which is basically what he was doing knowing full well that he would likely be shot for fighting and escaping. I know at least 2 guys who were way behind in child support, and neither would be that desperate.

          No it doesn’t mean he has money. All it means is that he didn’t pay for the car yet and is afraid of being charged with stealing the car, which he might well have done. “Paying for the car on Monday…” is exactly the type of thing a manipulative person says to get out of a jam.

    I just realized how odd it is that Slager was arrested after the video was released. The video pretty much corroborates Slager’s account of the incident. And surely the investigators who were on the scene, as well as the coroner or whoever inspected Scott’s body, knew that Scott had been shot in the back. And surely these experts had a clue at that time how far Scott was from Slager when he was shot. So pretty much all of the important facts were known prior to the appearance of the video. Why would the video have caused such a drastic knee-jerk reaction?

        Some info is spread over other threads, so a recap:

        Judge Newman is an Executive Board member of the I. DeQuincey Newman Institute for Peace and Social Justice at the University of South Carolina

        Judge Newman’s son, Brian DeQuincey Newman, a self described “black male who could’ve been Trayvon Martin”, spouts racial stuff toward George Zimmerman

        Judge Newman’s son, Brian DeQuincey Newman, is friends with the attorney for the star witness.

        One, there is a very short connection between the judge and the attorney for the star witness. The judge is from another part of the state, the attorney is not.

        Two, the judge and son have racial baggage.

        Three, the star witness delayed providing the video to police because he “feared for his life”, he instead provided the video to Scott’s family.

        Looks like biased players colluding.

        SD’s discovery of the connection between the judge and the witness attorney is huge.

    If you watch the taser wire it is slack when Slager and Scott are within inches of one another, which means the taser was recently, within seconds just deployed otherwise both Slager and/or Scott would have already been intwined in the wire given their intimate “tussle”. Watch very closely, focus on the line coming off of Scott, when Slager raises his left hand to grasp his gun in a standard shooting grip, his left arm raises up the wire attached to Scott and the wire wraps around Slager’s wrist causing the wire connected to Scott to go taunt.

    This means that an obviously mobil Scott very likely did not get multiple barbs in his body and that at least one barb went someplace else. Perhaps into Officer Slager.

    Slager’s left hand is empty, so it appears that Scott must have thrown the taser.

    It stands to reason that there is something important about the car, the passenger, and what they had and where they were heading. Something important that has to be hidden and obfuscated away.

    Scott did not run because of something that is not worth running from. So what was he running from? And willing to engage an officer in a fight over, to the point of taking a tazer? When’s the tox coming back on Scott?

        Scott worked for a warehouse making $12 to 14 an hour. He was hired six months previous. If he was full time he grossed over $11k in this time frame and took home $7-8k. He had to pay living and lodging expensive in the past six months since getting the job. Scott has 4 kids and was never behind on child support until 2008. In 2011 he owned $7500. In 212 he owed only $3500 so he paid down his support. Some say he now owed $7500 again, others claim its 18k. Now sure which one it is but he had the cash to buy the wheels and cash to buy the car and he got the cash from working for Browns Distribution warehouse. His van broke down and he needed a new car to get to work to earn cash to pay child support. Yes he was beyond on payments but again he always paid child support in the past.

            “I got mad at everybody in the whole world because I just lost the best job I ever had,” Scott said at the time. “I just stopped doing everything. I just closed myself into a little shell and started doing things I shouldn’t have been doing.”

            While I believe the cop had legal authority to shoot Scott I also believe the cop intended to kill him once he started shooting because he shot 8 times despite Scott getting farther and farther away from him. You can see Scott’s back react each time it was shot and Slager knew he was hitting his target and kept on shooting anyway.

            I know some of you think Scott had drugs on him which is why he ran, but even Slager doesn’t believe this because Slager never searched Scott even after he was handcuffed. Slager also knows Scott did not toss drugs or weapon during the chase because Scott was never out of the cops view long enough to do so and Slager never makes that allegation.

              Rationalizing the budget for a $12/hr recent-hire is fraught with peril, especially given the evidence that Scott was cutting ethical corners in every aspect of his life. My first impression is that the numbers don’t add up, and that is why other posters are laughing so hard.

              Scott was part of the underclass that cheats daily without qualms. How he accumulated cash for a vehicle–any vehicle–after only six months of work, and while having to pay other bills is very questionable. Welfare fraud? Selling stuff on the side, maybe even stolen goods? Drugs? I would be surprised if he weren’t, given the accounting headscratchers.

          Oh, and he had life expenses? Cry me a river, whydontcha? Welcome to adulthood. What happened to not spawning numerous children if you have no means of support for them? How about some personal responsibility? Not just for yourself and your own actions, but for those innocent beings you choose to bring into this world?

          This fully willful and intentional living in the permanent-childhood stage is mostly to blame for the disintegration of black family unit, and until it is acknowledged and addressed, things will only keep getting worse for them.

    …”Gregg Isaac testified in court this week that he entered the apartment of Antonio Corbitt in 2005 with another man, Tavares World, after World kicked in the door, The State newspaper reported. Isaac testified that as World and Corbitt fought, it looked like Corbitt was going to pull a gun and shoot Isaac, so instead, Isaac shot Corbitt twice. Corbitt stumbled outside and died.

    Isaac said he also feared for his life from World, because World had threatened to kill him unless he went along with him.

    Isaac’s defense attorney Mark Schnee argued that his client should be granted immunity from prosecution because South Carolina’s 2006 “stand your ground” law allows people to use deadly force if they fear for their lives.

    “It borders on the preposterous for the defendant in this case to claim he was acting lawfully and had the right to kill Mr. Corbitt,” Judge Clifton Newman said in court”….

    I’m not convinced that Judge Clifton Newman is a concern for Michael Slager. As noted above the Judge, after spending so much time seeing the DinDu Nuffin’s in his court, seems to have a firm grip on what’s sketchy and what’s not.

    A statement such as above supports that perspective.

    Still, much too early. I have to learn much more about all the players before a really good understanding of their outlook is clear.

      South Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice – Jean Toal.
      She is not just the boss and ring leader on the court that saw merit in hearing those ridiculous, idiotic ‘stand your ground’ arguments from Schnee, which is a very peculiar and highly alarming career milestone in itself.
      This lady seems to be quite prone to automotive misadventures. As in, she’s gifted at hitting other vehicles, usually parked, and driving away from the scene of an accident. Any ‘non-special’ person would probably have their license suspended, at least, but she’s adept at landing on her feet each time, with just a simple ‘citation’.
      Shocking! {eyeroll}
      I wonder, how many people does she owe favors in return? And whether Mr. Newman was one of those favors being cashed in.
      Judicial independence and objectivity my butt…..

      Outstanding work, Boss.
      I noticed that Slager’s attorney, Andy Savage, has spoken up about CJ Toal’s new appointee:
      “Slager’s high-powered Charleston attorney, applauded Newman’s appointment.
      “Judge Newman enjoys an excellent reputation as a jurist and we look forward to working under his guidance,” Savage told The Post and Courier. “A more competent member of the judiciary could not be found.”

      Finally, msnbc is good for something:
      http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/prominent-black-judge-tapped-preside-over-walter-scott-case

      Will he initiate a bail hearing for Ofcr. Slager by the end of the month or sooner? I sure hope so, even if the BGI calls him an Uncle Tom, even though Newman is only one of five black judges in the state.
      With your report above, I’m slowly starting to become more confident in this new appointment.

      Thank you for all you do.

    My apologies if this is already in WP purgatory or moderation and ends up being a double post, I can’t remember if I tried to posted it here or not.

    Perhaps a bit of a narrative spoiler?

    Looking at the 6 second video.

    If you watch the taser wire it is slack when Slager and Scott are within inches of one another, which means the taser was recently, within seconds just deployed otherwise both Slager and Scott would have already been entwined in the wire given their intimate “tussle”. Watch very closely, focus on the line coming off of Scott, when Slager raises his left hand to grasp his gun in a standard shooting grip, his left arm raises up the wire attached to Scott and the wire wraps around Slager’s wrist causing the wire connected to Scott to go taut.

    This means that an obviously mobil Scott very likely did not get multiple barbs in him and that at least one barb went someplace else. Perhaps into Officer Slager.

    Slager’s left hand is empty, his right hand arm make no moves inconsistent with unholstering his gun so that means it appears that Scott must have thrown the taser.

      I normally don’t post so much of an article, but good grief:

      NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — Walter Scott and Pierre Fulton handed out bags of food at a local church Saturday morning and were on their way to a cookout at Scott’s house when they saw an officer’s blue lights behind them, Fulton’s attorney told ABC News Monday night.

      What happened next has since been burned into the nation’s consciousness: While pulled over by North Charleston police officer Michael Slager for a broken tail light, Scott suddenly jumped from the vehicle and led Slager on a chase that ended with Slager fatally shooting the 50-year-old in a back.

      The traffic stop and the shooting were both captured on camera and Slager was fired from the police department and charged with murder.

      What happened in the moments before Scott ran has remained a mystery as Fulton has kept out of the public eye. His attorney, Mark A. Peper of Charleston, came forward Tuesday to tell his client’s story in hopes of making the story about Scott, his friend and coworker.

      Peper said Fulton was looking at his cell phone waiting on the officer to return to the Mercedes.

      “During this time there was not any indication that would have led Pierre to believe that Walter was getting ready to run,” Peper said. “And Walter just jumps out of the car and starts running. Pierre doesn’t know why. Walter didn’t say anything to Pierre prior to jumping out. He just jumped out and ran.”

      Peper said it bothers his client that people think they were doing something wrong.

      “That’s what so disconcerting to Pierre, is that everybody thinks they were doing something wrong inside the car, that Pierre must know why Walter was running and that’s just not the case,” Peper said. “They were on their way back to Walter’s house to have a cookout. They didn’t know why they were getting pulled over. The officer then tells them. Pierre goes back to looking on his phone while Walter deals with Officer Slager and then all of a sudden Walter takes off.”

      Peper said Fulton saw Scott turn a corner with Slager behind him and that’s the last time he saw his friend and coworker.

      “He was not in position to see the shooting,” Peper said. “He heard the shots. He was able to see officer give chase but unable to see them go around the corner. He remained seated in the passenger seat the entire time and couldn’t see anything that occurred after Walter turned the corner and Officer Slager followed.”

      Peper said his client heard the Taser, followed by the gunshots, but would not find out what happened to Scott until “several hours later.”

    It’s my hunch that the prosecutor is going to do the opposite of what McCulloch did in StL: namely, she will give the grand jury only a portion of the evidence that gives a fig leaf for keeping Slager jailed.

    Video stills of the cop being entangled in taser wires while in physical contact with the perp? Not. Gonna. Happen. In fact, the local press will avoid disseminating them at all costs, so that potential grand jurors are kept in the dark. (Now, if the defense attorney could raise a big stink about those images before the grand jury meets, then it would be Slager’s only hope of getting out before trial.)

    But forget about getting charges dropped. The deal is in and the railroad is running down the rails. They’re arrogant and they don’t care about justice. And foisting this civil-rights activist judge into this farce is a clear sign of where they are heading. SD may have reservations …. but I don’t.

        I’ll add this for the conspiracy-minded …

        There were two weapons used during this incident–Slager’s gun and taser.

        Now, had it been Slager’s intention to corrupt the evidence by introducing Scott’s contact with either weapon, what would have been the most persuasive? Getting DNA on the gun or the taser?

        And ask yourself this: what perceived advantage would have Slager gained by having the taser closer to Scott’s body, but not near his grasp?

        My interpretation is that Slager sprinted back to the taser in order to secure it.. But then, he didn’t sprint back to toward Scott. So it’s not like he demonstrated frantic deviousness, only a quandary of where to keep the taser. In his holster? Wouldn’t that be misleading, too? Put yourself in his spot.

          Unlike a firearm a taser records information (when it was fired and other stuff) so he would want to secure it to ensure the information is not lost. But if he’s planting evidence he doesn’t need to put it near Scott’s grasp because Scott fell after being shot and he could’ve landed anywhere. Unless their are police photos or video of the taser an a report claiming that it was found by Scott then any planting evidence allegation is dead in the water.

          But as other and I have pointed out in other threads, what he picks up and holsters does not appear to be in the same location of where he dropped it by Scott’s body. It appears Slager drops the taser on the left side of Scott’s body and what he picked up was on the right side of Scotts body. I don’t see on the video how the taser got from Scott’s left side to his right side and this part of the video needs to be analyzed more closely.

            I think that the taser-planting claim is a dead horse.

            It’s clear that beating up on Slager for peripheral actions is not going to make the case. No, it will be proving that he had enough time between making the decision to draw his weapon and the moment when Scott had achieved a separation that should have impacted his reaction to fire.

            That’s a toughie. The prosecutor not only has to demonstrate that a person under stress should have reconfigured his original decision, but that Scott also posed no remaining threat to the officer. Moreover, no threat to the general public, and that Slager could have made that decision near-instantaneously.

              You can tell yourself it’s a dead horse. You can give other reasonable explanations for Slager dropping the Taser next to Scott’s body. But you can’t change the fact that if Scott had dropped the Taser after fleeing with it Slager’s story would me much stronger, like having an ace card.

              The fact that Slager nearly dealt himself an ace by dropping the Taser next to Scott will not be a dead horse for many people.

Do you think Habersham is black first, or a cop first? I think he’s a cop first. Certainly, Santana represented the bigger threat to planting the Taser.

                  The fact remains that if Slager hadn’t picked up the Taser, the location where he dropped it would constitute planting the Taser by the dead guy.

              Slager may very well have thought that Scott had the Taser as he fled. When Slager saw the Taser still on the fight ground, he hustled over to get it and he put it where he wanted it to be. Then he realized that he can’t do that, perhaps because Officer Habersham might rat him out, perhaps because there was a guy behind the chain link fence with a camera phone pointed at him, or perhaps Slager’s better angels were realizing that Scott hadn’t been carrying the Taser and that planting the Taser next to the dying man wasn’t right.

Even after Slager indicating via radio that Scott grabbed his taser, the Sgt on scene states on his report he secured the firearm and marked casings. No mention of securing the taser or marking the confetti. I do think at some point it was also seized but it seems the public may be making more of an issue of it than LE did.
