Larry Wilmore on the Walter Scott Murder by Cop

Larry Wilmore used his platform The Nightly Show on Comedy Central to address the Walter Scott murder by Officer Michael Slager.

“A white cop has been charged in the killing of an unarmed black man. In the cop’s defense, he had no idea it was on video. For the record, this crazy black thug was attacking him and he did what he had to do, but this time, we actually have the record.

“Yesterday, after the video was released, Officer Slager was charged with murder… and that’s the great news. By the way, that’s how low the bar is right now on great news. Right? I mean the fact that a cop who coldly murdered someone on camera even facies the remote possibility of justice is giving me the warm fuzzies.”
