AIR DATE: November 30, 2010

The County Commission has started looking at reform proposals for inquests into police shootings. The suggestions include doing away with the verdict of justified or criminal shooting and allowing police officers and family members to be represented by lawyers. Members of the task force that devised the changes will explain why they think the changes will improve the process or not.

GUEST
Christopher Blakesley, Professor of Law, UNLV Boyd School of Law and Chair, Clark County Commission's task force on inquest reforms
Maggie McLetchie, Legal Director, ACLU of Nevada
