Police Shootings

Hosted by

Police here in Southern California shot four people over the weekend, three of whom died. That’s not out of the norm, given the statistics. According to a new investigation by the Los Angeles Times, more than 2,000 people have been shot by police in six Southern California counties since 2004. Out of all those shootings, only one officer was prosecuted. And he was acquitted. We hear from a reporter who uncovered these statistics.
