From 2010–2014, the Los Angeles County District Attorney responded to hundreds of shootings involving on-duty law enforcement officers. According to D.A. records, 375 people were shot. One in four of them were unarmed. Circumstances behind the shootings varied widely. Some people were actively committing a violent crime–even shooting at police. No officers have been prosecuted for any of those shootings.
