Description

Shots Fired examines how the San Francisco Police Department investigates cases in which officers shoot civilians. It detailed five police shootings that raised questions about the department's conduct in the shooting and the subsequent official investigation. It is the first public tally of the number of citizens killed (31) or injured (55)by San Francisco police bullets (in the last eight years). Among its findings: San Francisco cops fatally shot civilians at about twice the rate of police in New York City and Los Angeles; San Francisco paid more than $1.5 million in settlements, judgments and legal fees in the past 10 years for suits claiming cops wrongfully shot eight unarmed people; and about 75 percent of those shot or killed were minorities or people in low income areas.
