Juries For Police Officers Who've Shot Civilians, What Works?
KUNM Call In Show Thur. 1/24 8a: Bernalillo County District Attorney Kari Brandenburg plans to restart what some have called a controversial process of reviewing the cases of officer involved shootings by using an 'investigative grand jury.' How would you like to see these shootings dealt with? Are these juries enough? What other options are there for determining whether an officer was justified in using deadly force? We'd like to hear from you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, post your comments online, or call in live during the show.
