Ezell Ford: Tensions High after Police Commission Ruling

Hosted by

LA's civilian police commission has overruled LAPD Chief Charlie Beck and its own Inspector General, finding one officer was wrong to pull the trigger in the shooting death of Ezell Ford 10 months ago. Despite the rebuke, any discipline is now up to Chief Beck. Will the DA file criminal charges?

Also, will LA County have enough prisoners to invest $2 billion in a new jail?
