Oakland police quick to fire, slow to investigate questionable shootings

Oakland police have been questioned for years by court-appointed watchdogs for questionable shootings and a failure to investigate them, The Bay Area News Group reports. A review by the news group finds that police can't account for all shootings since 2000 and that an alarming pattern has persisted in the face of warnings. The news group found two dozen officers involved in multiple shootings, at least 19 unarmed people shot, harmless items mistaken for women and nearly $10 million in legal settlements.
