LAPD Shooting of Reggie Doucet

Hosted by

Reginald Doucet, who played football at El Comino College and Middle Tennessee State, was shot to death Friday morning near his home on the west side of Los Angeles. The LAPD had been called because the Playa Vista resident was naked and disruptive. Two officers talked him into putting on shorts, but he allegedly became combative and tried to seize their weapons. One officer shot twice and Doucet died at a nearby hospital. The LAPD says the cops were "fighting for their lives," but civil rights activist Earl Ofari Hutchinson is not satisfied with that explanation.
