On the plus side...
Footage has emerged of the "disturbing" moment a US patrol officer shot an unarmed man after requesting to see his driving license during a routine check.
South Carolina State Trooper Sean Groubert has been charged with assault and battery after shooting Levar Edward Jones at a petrol station in Columbia on 4 September, 2014.
Police released footage of the incident taken from the dashboard camera of Groubert's patrol car following his arrest.
The video shows Groubert pulling Jones over for allegedly not wearing his seatbelt while driving. After asking Jones to get out of the car, Groubert told Jones to hand over his license.
As Jones turns to retrieve his license, Groubert shouts "get out the car" before firing four times.
