Today, federal prosecutors said they will seek the death penalty in the case of 24-year old Paul Ciancia, accused of opening fire inside Terminal 3 of Los Angeles International Airport back in November 2013. That rampage left a TSA agent dead – 39-year old Gerardo Hernandez – and several others injured. The case also highlighted a big lack of communication at LAX between different law enforcement organizations. Also this week, the L.A. County Coroner’s office released (after a lengthy LAPD security hold) the autopsy of Ezell Ford, the 25-year old unarmed black man who was shot and killed in South LA by LAPD officers. KCRW's Steve Chiotakis spoke with Joe Mathews, California columnist for Zocalo Public Square, and Kate Mather, who reports on crime and breaking news for the L.A. Times.
