This week, the Los Angeles Police Department is expected to release the autopsy report for the officer-involved shooting of Ezell Ford.

The unarmed 25-year-old African American man was fatally shot by two LAPD officers in August. Ford's family and community activists have been calling for the release of the report for months.

Jasmyne A. Cannick, an L.A.-based political analyst and social commentator who's been following the case closely, joins Take Two to discuss the report's release.
