"On August 31, seven police officers in Inglewood, CA, confronted a homeless man on the street. By the time the incident was over, they shot 47 bullets at the man, who had a toy plastic gun. Police dashboard cameras caught the shooting on tape--and now a concerned public is expressing its doubts about this show of force.
Residents want city leaders to take action now. "There are many, many great officers in the city of Inglewood," said one at a public hearing Tuesday night. "I know many of them, and I've worked with many of them. However, the concerns are with those who are combative, those who are obviously defensive, and those who are obviously dangerous to our communities.""
