On Friday, Scott’s brother Anthony said, “We do believe within our hearts that we will see justice for my brother,” BuzzFeed News reports. He had said at an earlier time, “No human being deserves to be gunned down from the back.”

The world has watched too many times as American police officers get away with murdering unarmed black people across the country. Following the decision in Slager’s case, the internet responded with calls of “Black Lives Matter.” Some also pointed to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling protest.
