Who killed Walter Scott? Apparently, we’re not really sure.

That’s according to a jury in Charleston, South Carolina, which was unable to reach a reach a verdict Monday in the murder trial of Michael Slager, who shot Scott and whose actions were captured by a witness in a video that went viral.

Of course, the jury has its reasons — apparently one juror, identified only as a 50-year-old male in press reports, said he “cannot in good conscience consider a guilty verdict.” Slager may still wind up being put on trial again.

But the takeaway for black people whose daily encounters with police end in harassment, violence or death, is simple: Our lives don’t matter, even when they’re being taken in front of millions of viewers.
