Walter Scott was a father of four with a fiancee. Walter Scott has a family who loved him. Walter Scott’s life mattered.
Walter Scott was murdered by a white police officer, Michael Slager, in North Charleston, South Carolina.
In the wake of the shooting, four more children will grow up without their father.
“He has four children; he doesn’t have some type of big violent past or arrest record,” said Chris Stewart, a lawyer for Mr. Scott’s family. “He had a job; he was engaged. He had back child support and didn’t want to go to jail for back child support.”
