    When will he be sentenced? It appears the max with this plea would be 25 years. What will the public response be once he is sentenced? I fear people will once again riot, loot, etc. when they dissatisfied with the sentence. I just don't believe admittance of guilt will be enough.

    I will reserve judgement on this one until the actual sentence is handed down. But one thing to be sure of... former officer Slager best be staying in prison.

    Mr. Slager said little during a brief hearing in United States District Court here, but he acknowledged the factual basis for the plea agreement, which said he had “used deadly force even though it was objectively unreasonable under the circumstances.”

    Minutes later, as Mr. Slager was led from the courtroom in handcuffs, he passed crying members of Mr. Scott’s family. Across the courtroom’s center aisle, members of Mr. Slager’s family stood silently and tearfully.

    Admittance of guilt is definitely not enough. He should be behind bars. He's a menace, this isn't even his first incident and another force let him go for being unfit.

    Sentencing hearing underway.

    I hope he gets life and I hope no one can overrule/pardon the judges sentence. It's time this treatment of black men by police ends and there are serious consequences for those who don't.

    It is expected that the sentencing hearing will last about a week. The hearing will include testimony to determine if Slager’s crime is equivalent to voluntary manslaughter or murder.

    "The former South Carolina police officer who shot and killed Walter Scott, an unarmed black man, following a traffic stop was sentenced Thursday to 20 years behind bars in a federal case stemming from the fatal encounter.

    Michael Slager, who had been an officer with the North Charleston police, was charged with murder in state court and indicted on federal civil rights charges after the shooting in 2015. His murder trial ended with a deadlocked jury last year, and prosecutors had vowed to retry Slager in state court."

    From WP article above.

    I think a lot of us were...so tired of seeing LE get away with killing people, when it isn't necessary.

    Can former police officer Michael Slager's 20-year sentence deter other killings?

    https://www.postandcourier.com/news/...df9b73385.html

    While Michael Slager's 20-year sentence has been viewed as a warning to other police officers faced with using their firearms in the line of duty, some observers doubt the lasting influence of a particularly stark example of excessive force like Walter Scott’s death.
