Hip Hop Community Voices Disgust Over Walter Scott Shooting
QuestLove and others react to the Walter Scott Shooting by police officer.
If you've been living under a rock this week, let me fill you in: another unarmed black man, Walter Scott, was shot and killed by a police officer, Michael Slager, in South Carolina. Slager has been arrested and since charged with murder. The difference between this and the many others we've seen in the news this past year is this was caught on video.
In the damning footage, Scott can be seen attempting to run away from Slager when the officer opened fire, shooting Scott in the back eight times. I'm of the firm belief that tape doesn't lie.
Of course, there was much social media reaction on all ends of the spectrum. Here's what QuestLove, of the Legendary Roots Crew, had to say via his Twitter:
