A day after the Los Angeles Police Commission concluded that a police officer was justified when he fatally shot a drunk, knife-wielding man on a busy street corner, the oversight body released a detailed report that further elaborated on the incident and its decision.
The 21-page report offers details of the killing of Manuel Jamines, which triggered days of unrest and rioting in the Westlake neighborhood where the shooting occurred. It includes, for example, detailed accounts of the incident from the perspective of the three officers who responded to the scene, as well as several eye witnesses.
