(W. Kamau Bell, CNN) Summary: A federal grand jury indicted white SC police officer Michael Slager on charges of violating the civil rights of black citizen Walter Scott, a 50-year-old man pulled over in North Charleston by Slager for a broken tail light last April. After Slager pulled Scott over, Scott ran -- fearing arrest or being brutalized or killed -- because he was afraid of getting killed by a cop.

Officer Slager then shot eight bullets at Scott's back hitting him in the back five times, killing him, then attempted to set him up by placing a stun gun next to his corpse. It would have worked except a bystander filmed it. Irony is nowhere near deep enough a word for this. Michael Slager is being charged with a federal crime... Killer ex-NC cop indicted
