*In big bold letters, Time magazine featured the words “Black Lives Matter” to mark the shooting of African American man Walter Scott by white Charleston, South Carolina police officer Michael Slager.
The cover also features screenshots of the cell phone footage that captured Slager shooting Scott as he flees.
Slager, who had stopped Scott over a broken tail light, said he opened fire after a scuffle over his taser. Video footage later showed he fired eight shots at Scott as he fled. Slager has been charged with murder for the killing.
The cover comes on the heels of several similar incidents in which police have killed unarmed African-American men, including Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner in New York City.
