The L.A. Times reports how the L.A. police shot and killed a homeless and mentally ill woman after questioning her about the shopping cart in her possession. The incident touched-off a story about how the police are trained to respond to confrontations with the mentally ill. "Their two-part series raised serious questions about officers' tactics and use of deadly force over the past six years in fatal confrontations with a dozen mentally ill or unstable people and revealed major flaws in the department's shooting investigations."
