Meet Feidin Santana: The Man Who Recorded the Viral Video

The man who recorded the viral video that shows a [__South Carolina cop shooting an unarmed man in the back__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2015/04/south-carolina-cop-arrested-for-murder-after-video-shows-him-shooting-man-in-back/) was interviewed tonight by NBC News, showing his face for the first time.

His name is Feidin Santana and he says he just happened to be near the scene when he saw North Charleston police officer Michael Slager using a taser gun on Walter Scott, who then took off running.

Instinctively, he began recording and captured the scene that resulted in Slager getting arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

He said he never saw Scott take the taser from Slager – as Slager had claimed in his report.

But he did capture Slager tossing the taser gun near Scott’s body to help bolster his story that he was in fear for his life.

Had it not been for his video, Slager would have viewed as a hero, justified in killing an innocent man.

But now we can see who the real hero is.

Below the first video is a second video showing a press conference conducted by both the mayor and chief of police, which shows the pressure from the community the city is facing.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
