unarmed black man
Kenneth Lopera is the first Metropolitan Police Department cop to be charged with an officer-involved fatality in almost 30 years.
Samuel DuBose's death led to peaceful protests, resulted in a cop getting charged with murder, and inspired this photo series of "Over-the-Rhine" from Taylor Dorrell.
The payout for the death of the unarmed black man at the hands of a white police officer was the largest pre-lawsuit settlement in the history of South Carolina and one of the largest in the United States, the family's lawyer said.
The officer who killed Tony Robinson was cleared of wrongdoing by the local district attorney.
In the audio recording, officer Michael Slager can be heard telling a fellow officer his adrenaline is "pumping."
The calls come as police release dashcam footage showing Scott fleeing his Mercedes at a traffic stop, moments before officer Michael Slager fatally shoots him.
Michael Slager has been charged with murder for fatally shooting at Scott eight times as he ran away from the officer.
