Body Camera Footage Disputes LAPD Account of Fatal Shooting

Hosted by

On Skid Row early this year, an unarmed black man was shot to death by the LAPD. Chief Charlie Beck defended the killing because officers claimed the man had grabbed one of their pistols. But an investigative reporter says police body cams and interviews tell a different story. 

Also, after another incident of jailhouse brutality, we ask LA Sheriff Jim McDonnell why the new inspector general can’t get the records of personnel investigations. Plus, why many outdoor showers will be turned off at some beaches but left on at others.
