Police Shootings - Training and the Inquest Process

The Las Vegas Review-Journal has undertaken a year-long review of police shootings in Clark County. The series has documented a culture reluctant to change as well as training and personnel procedures inadequate to change the system. The reporters as well as critics of the system join us to discuss the findings on the culture of local police departments and the failings of the inquest process to bring out the facts in police shootings.
