6:14 pm
conduct a public forum where we answer questions and we have the detective present, so we can talk about why decisions are made and what goes in to making those kinds of decisions. >> beth talked a little about transparency, one thing i have brought to the table and i am excited to do in fatal police shootings, an area where minority community does not trust the decisions we are making, is to have an indet is concurrent with the district attorney review process, for people who don't know the people involved in the police department to look at the same facts that we are looking at at the same time and raise questions and issues as they arise. because the number-1 question for people is, can you make a decision about a police officer's activity when one day you are using them for a prosecution, and the next day considering them for prosecution? it is a valid kern.
