Will the LAPD finally bring a cop to trial for killing an unarmed man?

Via The Atlantic:

“While a Los Angeles Police Department officer hasn’t been charged in an on-duty killing in more than 15 years, it suddenly seems likely that it may happen. On Monday, L.A. police chief Charlie Beck, who typically defends his force, publicly announced that Officer Clifford Proctor, 50, should face charges in the May killing of a 29-year-old homeless man.”
