A white former police officer charged with murder in the shooting death of a black motorist poses little risk of committing violence, according to court documents filed Tuesday by his attorneys seeking to have their client released on bond.

Attorneys for Michael Slager filed 150 pages of documents in preparation for a Thursday bond hearing. Slager, a former North Charleston police officer, is charged with murder in the April 4 shooting death of 50-year-old Walter Scott. A bystander's cellphone video showed Slager firing eight times as Scott tried to run away from a traffic stop. Slager, 33, was fired after the shooting, which inflamed the national debate about how blacks are treated by white law enforcement officers.
