Police Misconduct

NPR's Eric Westervelt reports on allegations of police misconduct in the Washington, DC suburb of Prince George's County, Maryland. PG County police officers have shot 12 suspects in just over a year, killing five of them. The FBI is conducting a criminal investigation into the latest case, in which an undercover PG County detective killed an unarmed suspect after following him through the District of Columbia and into Fairfax County, Virginia. The Justice Department is considering whether to open a broader civil rights investigation into the various allegations.
