Former North Charleston officer accused of murder, heads to court

Michael Slager, a former North Charleston police officer accused of murder, heads to court with the hopes of being set free on bond.

Slager has been indicted on murder charges in the shooting death of 50-year-old Walter Scott back in April.

What was supposed to be a routine traffic stop, ended with Scott being shot at eight times as he fled the scene.

Activists are speaking out ahead of today’s hearing, denouncing the possibility of Slager’s release.
