Los Angeles Police Commission Changes Deadly Force Policy

The Los Angeles Police Commission has voted to revise its use-of-force evaluation policies. Previously, the commission used a multi-step process, evaluating actions before and during a use-of-force incident separately. But now the board has clarified that it can take an officer's actions into account leading up to an incident, in the evaluation of a shooting or other violent incident. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports from Los Angeles.
