Cop who shot man in back laughed about adrenaline rush


Michael Slager, the North Charleston cop who shot Walter Scott, laughed about the 'pumping' feeling after the incident, reports The Guardian.

By the time you get home, it would probably be a good idea to kind of jot down your thoughts on what happened," the senior officer said. "You know, once the adrenaline quits pumping."

"It's pumping," Slager said, laughing. The senior officer replied: "Oh yeah. Oh yeah."

The senior officer told Slager during the conversation to go home and relax, assuring him that he would not have to answer questions about the shooting for days.

But it did not work out that way for Slager. Instead, footage appeared of him firing into Scott's back, then appearing to plant a taser by the body. Slager was charged with murder—and publicly abandoned by his lawyer.
