Summerville, S.C. — As the funeral for Walter Scott ended Saturday afternoon, Rev. George Hamilton, a minister at W.O.R.D. Ministries, told the overflow crowd that Scott’s shooting “was an act motivated by overt racism.”Hamilton called Michael Slager, the former officer who shot Scott, a disgrace to the North Charleston Police Department. The congregation Hamilton spoke to included two black members of South Carolina’ congressional delegation, Republican U.S. Sen. Tim Scott and U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, a Democrat.”We will not indict the entire law enforcement community for the act of one racist,” Hamilton said.
