Young Man Who Recorded Walter Scott Killing Gets Award, Money Grant

-A +A

Feidin Santana

Feidin Santana will be awarded the Civic Engagement Award and also given a monetary grant. The 23-year-old was responsible for the recording and release of the Walter Scott shooting. His footage played a key role in charging Michael Slager for murder.

Before the video was released, Slager had provided a misleading report concerning the incident, one that would surely get him off the hook. In his report, he claimed that Scott tried to grab his Taser. This then led to a struggle, which made him shoot Scott, allegedly in self-defense. However, the video provided by Santana showed that there was no struggle between the two, and Scott did not even come close to the police officer.

Slager was seen shooting at Scott eight times as the man ran away from the officer. While Scott was face down on the ground, Slager placed something that looked like a Taser close to the body, presumably in order for the scene of the crime to collaborate with his false report.
