Q: Why is the cop's pant leg rolled up?
A: Because because the idiot perp shot him with the officer's Taser.
There's a lot more to the shooting of Walter Scott but you wouldn't know that from the limited information the media supplies.
From The Conservative Treehouse:
On the first day we saw the North Charleston, South Carolina, shooting video of Walter Scott by Officer Michael Slager we were as shocked as everyone. However, as research now indicates there is much more to the story.As we have heard, "In war the first victim is truth." The liberal media is at war with conservatives and has been for decades.
There is no lie too small that they will not hysterically bleat to the world, nor any truth so large that they will not bury it.
The South Carolina Walter Scott shooting -by Police Officer Michael Slager- is absolutely filled with intentionally missing elements in an effort by ALL INTERESTED PARTIES to sell a narrative useful for their purposes.
What does that mean? It means this is not just a legal issue; it means the shooting is being manipulated for a political benefit; it means the substance in the media reports are there to sell a purposeful narrative from one singular perspective.
EXAMPLE: All of the police officers initial incident reports have been released, except Officer Slager.
Why omit Officer Slager’s statement?
Perhaps missing because that only way the narrative sellers can claim discrepancies, ie. “lies” in the Slager report. That’s how you embed a belief in the public when the truth is divergent. Promote the lie, hide the inconvenient truth. Then, eventually, when the truth comes out, the lie has already embedded – “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot”…
And, yes, the victim was administered first aid at the scene, just as the police said.
