Description

These series were about police-involved shootings in Florida. The stories raise serious questions about abuse of power, excessive force and whether police are always given the benefit of the doubt even when the evidence points to the contrary. NBC 6 was able to give the public a rare look at actions by Miami-Dade Police Department. The series aired before the Ferguson shooting and began drawing national attention to the issue of police shootings when MSNBC rebroadcast part of it. It has helped change county laws. Miami-Dade Police will no longer investigate their own police-involved shootings.
