Description

This investigation found that of the more than 80 suspects shot in the last six years by Central Florida police almost half of them were unarmed. The officers who shot the unarmed suspects were rarely disciplined, even in cases where evidence or witnesses contradicted the officer's account of the shooting. "Black suspects who were shot or shot at were twice as likely as white suspects to be unarmed."
