In South Carolina the former police officer who shot and killed Walter Scott plead guilty to using excessive force.  A video shows former officer Michael Slager shooting Scott in the back as he ran away from a traffic stop.  Scott’s brother Anthony and mother Judy are pleased with the developments.  The plea agreement states that the government will ask the court to apply sentencing guidelines for second degree murder, which carries up to 25 years in prison.  Former officer Slager was taken into custody and will remain there until sentencing later this year.
