FROM THIS EPISODE

Twenty-two people have been shot by the LAPD in the first half of this year. Eleven of them have died — most recently Jason Davis, a homeless man shot in Venice on Monday. Police say there's no "epidemic," but retraining in the use of force has begun this week for all 10,000 officers. Will that help restore the confidence of black people, the homeless, the mentally ill?  

Also, ridesharing gets the go ahead at LAX.

Fatal Shootings and Retraining at the LAPD 5 MIN, 56 SEC

This year, LAPD officers have shot 22 people — up from an average of 15 or 16 in the first half of recent years. Jason Davis, a homeless man shot in a Venice coffee shop Monday, died last night, bringing this year's death toll to 11. Chief Charlie Beck says last summer's shooting death of Ezell Ford, a mentally ill black man, was "an important incident in the history of the LAPD." It's apparently what led to what Beck calls a "refresher" course in the use of force for all 10,000 officers — beginning this week.

Ridesharing Gets the Go Ahead at LAX 17 MIN, 52 SEC

Licensed cab drivers have long regarded LA Airport as their last remaining stronghold in the battle with Uber, Lyft and other ride sharing companies. Not anymore. LA officials have made LAX the largest airport in the nation to fully welcome the mobile app-based services. Laura Nelson reports on transportation for the LA Times.
