The LA Times has a front-page article about the the wrongful death and civil rights lawsuit filed against the LAPD by Christopher Bou Saeed. The lawsuit alleges that the shooting death of Filipino American Rommel Mendoza by the LAPD was “unnecessary, unreasonable, and cruel.”

Christopher Bou Saeed, the family’s attorney, said Mendoza’s death is a perfect example of that.

“You don’t have to be a lawyer,” he said, “to know that shooting someone exhibiting signs of mental illness from over 75 feet away doesn’t make any sense.”
