The Guardian newspaper has obtained a police recording of North Charleston police officer Michael Slager laughing after shooting Walter Scott dead and allegedly planting a taser gun on him last Saturday.
In the audio, Slager laughs while describing his “adrenaline pumping” immediately after the shooting Walter Scott at least five times in the back as the victim tried to flee. The tape captures a senior police officer running Slager through department protocols for a police shooting, which the officer also appears to find humorous. According to the Guardian transcript, the Senior Officer says:
“Probably once they get you there, we’ll take you home. Take your crap off, take your vest off, kind of relax for two or three.”
“It’ll be real quick,”
