Following the 2015 video footage – shot by Feidin Santana – of former South Carolina police officer Michael Slager shooting a handcuffed Walter Scott, 50, in the back eight times, a jury decided to indict him (unlike some other officers we’ve heard of).

Although a judge denied Slager’s bail back in September, claiming the release “would constitute an unreasonable danger to the community,” he has since changed him mind, and allowed Slager to be let out on a $500,000 bail.

Judge Clifton Newman has decided to release Slager on bail because his speedy trial [Oct. 31] is not so speedy.

Apparently, the man’s trial date was set back after the state Supreme Court decided that no one would go on trial until after the trial of Dylan Roof, the terrorist that killed nine members of a church in Charleston, took place in July.

The stipulations to his bail release are that he must remain on house arrest, unless he is attending church, or going to a doctor, court or attorney visit.
