Police Shooting Moving Cars Almost Always Kill Unarmed People

4 September 2016

NPR did an investigative report about police shooting at moving cars. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Heavy scrutiny surrounding officer-involved shootings has some law enforcement leaders rethinking firing at moving cars.

One of those agencies is the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which recently changed its policy on the issue. The LASD is the largest sheriff’s dept in the country, with about 10,000 full-time sworn personnel.

NPR member station KPCC in Pasadena has been tracking the use of force by sheriff’s deputies as part of an ongoing investigative series called Officer Involved. It found almost every driver or passenger shot by deputies was unarmed.”
