Michael Slager’s defense counsel, Andy Savage, emailed me the following statement this morning, along with the rest of the media.
We were informed by the Solicitor that the Grand Jury has indicted Michael Slager on the charge of murder. We do not know what other charge(s) (if any) the GJ considered. We have yet to be provided with the Discovery (state’s investigation) material that we requested some time ago so we remain at a disadvantage in addressing any questions at this time. The GJ is a formal step, but just another step in the criminal process. Until we have an opportunity to fully evaluate the State’s case and to compare it with our own investigation we will not be commenting on any aspect of the case.
My previous VDARE reports on this case:
“Here We Go Again: Walter Scott, Michael Slager And Another Post-American Lynch Mob”; and
“Why Don’t They Just Crucify Officer Michael Slager And Have Done With It?”
Unfortunately, it looks like there are going to be many more to come.
