Michael T. Slager, the white police officer whose video-recorded killing of an unarmed black motorist in North Charleston, S.C., starkly illustrated the turmoil over racial bias in American policing, was sentenced on Thursday to 20 years in prison, after the judge in the case said he viewed the shooting as a murder. The sentence, which was within the range of federal guidelines, was pronounced in Federal District Court in Charleston about seven months after Slager pleaded guilty to violating the civil rights of Walter L. Scott when he shot and killed him in April 2015. The case against Slager is one of the few instances in which a police officer has been prosecuted for an on-duty shooting.

Hence protected class is an issue.

Not at all. But if you can find "protected class" raised somewhere in the link at 38 or the court's gay marriage opinion in Obergefell I'll address it. Until then, it's just a deflection from the question presented which is the First Amendment. Why do you not want to deal with that?
