Proposal to Subject Officers in Critical Incidents to Special Prosecutor Fails in the Assembly

AB 86 was 86'd in the Assembly today.  Under the proposed bill, every officer-involved shooting would have to be reviewed by a special prosecutor appointed by the Attorney General.  This review would have been in addition to department and district attorney reviews.  The bill was among several bills that failed to advance through the Assembly Appropriations Committee earlier today.
