SCDP CHAIR STATEMENT ON MISTRIAL IN MICHAEL SLAGER CASE

Columbia, SC – South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement on the declaration of a mistrial in the Michael Slager murder case:

“I am disappointed that justice for Walter Scott and his family has been delayed, but with a new trial coming, I am confident that justice will not be denied. The video evidence is indisputable to any reasonable observer, and while nothing is guaranteed, I expect that the second jury will have a full complement of 12 reasonable observers. After all the Charleston community has been through, they deserve nothing less. This is a test for our justice system, a test that the nation must not fail.”
