Gotnews.com can confirm the authenticity of a violent, anti-George Zimmerman Facebook post by Walter Scott. The above post has since been deleted but not before we took a screenshot of it.
Scott was killed in an encounter with South Carolina police officer Michael Slager, according to a video provided to the New York Times.
Gotnews.com has watched the selectively edited video provided to the New York Times by purported bystander Feidin Santana. The video has several jumps that make it unclear what happened beforehand.
Scott’s past brushes with the law should raise questions about the interaction between himself and officer Slager. Scott, who was allegedly stopped while driving a Mercedes, has had many problems with the law, mostly for contempt of court charges for failing to pay child support, including one accusation of a violation stemming from an assault and battery charge in 1987.
