Passenger: Walter Scott was dear friend, ‘helped me to become a better man’

– THE POST AND COURIER, APRIL 13 2015, FEAT. PROF. SETH STOUGHTON:

Pierre Fulton, who was a passenger in the car when Walter Scott fled from a traffic stop and was shot and killed by a North Charleston police officer, said he is still in mourning over his close friend and will never know why he ran.

“Walter was a dear friend, and I miss him every day,” Fulton stated in a release from Charleston attorney Mark Peper. “Over the past five years, he helped me to become a better man and showed me the value of hard work. I’ll never know why he ran, but I know he didn’t deserve to die. Please keep Walter and his family in your prayers and respect my privacy moving forward.”
