Police Shootings in Portland

Listen
AIR DATE: January 6, 2012

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is not the only department that has been troubled by too many police shootings of suspects. Portland Police Bureau has in recent years faced similar issues with a minority community that was angry that so many of its members, often mentally ill, were being shot. And eventually the US Department of Justice Civil Rights Division reviewed the department's practices and recommended changes.
