The case of Ezell Ford of South Los Angeles has been drawing comparison to Ferguson, Missouri. Ezell was shot last week in an officer-involved shooting. Relatives say he was mentally ill.
Several community members and activists believe it to be another case of excessive force, not unlike the killing of Michael Brown. About 200 people showed up at a community meeting in South L.A. last Tuesday night, where LAPD Chief Charlie Beck took questions about the incident. Southern California Public Radio's Frank Stoltze brings us the latest.
