24 years for killing an unarmed man who was running away ? He takes a life whiles being sworn & trusted . If that doesn't get anyone to understand why the protests are happening nothing will .
He will get 16 years, and maybe serve 5 , time is usually is cut in half they count day and night, so 1 day in jail =2 days of time served, then good behavior will knock off 3-5 years. Yup the system works ,justice has been served. Smfh
Good job jurry !!! Now on to the next keep sending these pants wetting Bages to prison. . hope the healing will be eased knowing justice was served...
This sentence is way too light. I watched the video and am still horrified that not only did he shoot him in the back, but planted evidence as well. He murdered him in cold blood.
Finally...I want to support our good and decent police officers but not at the expense of lives being lost for the wrong reasons. Police like him need to be made accountable so that others can do their job for all of us. Walter Scott's family will never have him back, but maybe they can take comfort in knowing that one bad one is gone. One of the most horrifying videos ever seen...sad and frightening for all.
How long until Tomi Lahren screams foul on this just because? we need to hold people accountable for their actions and that includes the law. I do believe most law officials are good but we need to address these type of incidents.
Plead guilty to federal charges for violation of civil rights but the state was resolved because of a mistrial. So if it was left up to the state this guy wouldn't do any time! Wow!
A life for a life. I’m glad he was found guilty, but had it been a non cop affiliated person or the victim had been white or female the sentence would be longer. It needs to be a standard that if you kill someone you get life.
I bet most of these comments are from folk that never had dealings with dishonest law enforcement before. I totally believe in law and order but I also believe the cops better be the epitome of this or find another line of work.
The commenters of this article are making it sound like this is the first time ever a cop has gotten in trouble. Bunch of retarded liberals.
