Someone who has enough clout to get this Police Officer, Clarence Habersham, who lied and helped to cover up a murder tossed off the force. Yes, a Police officer who lied and tried to cover up a murder by a fellow officer.
Thing here is, if he lied about the incident between Mr. Scott (dead, not talking) and Officer Michael Slager (whose story was totally refuted by the video), what else has he lied about? ALL of his prior testimony is suspect. Each and every time he arrested someone, every time he testified in court, all of it is now suspect.
And apparently, there is another officer who lied...Sargent James Gann.
Police bleed blue and all that. When is a crime enough that they will break ranks?
Not all police are bad. I know several that I respect, and if they told me that the sky had turned yellow I'd believe them. But some are bad. Very bad. Liars thieves and cheats. And they stain the good officer's uniforms as well.
