The website GoFundMe has shutdown the funding campaign that someone created to support South Carolina police officer Michael Slager, whom is in the news for the death of Walter Scott, an unarmed black man that was trying to run from the officer during a police traffic stop. Officer Slager fired his weapon repeatedly at Mr. Scott that resulted in the death of the unarmed father. He gave false information in a report and told authorities that Scott had taken his taser. In subsequent video footage recorded by a innocent bystander, it appears the officer puts a metal object next to the body of Walter Scott that resembles a taser. GoFundMe put out a statement claiming that the creation of this campaign to fund the officer violates their terms and conditions of the service especially when charges have been filed in a court of law.
