st. Atty. Bonnie Dumanis has released video of three San Diego police officer-involved shootings, a reversal of her previous declarations that all such footage would be treated as evidence to be seen only in court.
"The position represents a major departure from historical practices, but we recognize the times have changed," Dumanis said in a news briefing Friday at her offices. "This is really new territory."
She said the legal rights of all the parties involved must be protected and balanced against the public's desire to view such video.
