Two L.A. Cops Shoot Unarmed Mentally Ill Black Man in the Back

Have you heard about this story?  Another tragic death.  The story is also buried over at the L.A. Times local section here.

Let's see if this story gets as much media attention as Ferguson since (a) there was a round fired through someone's back, (b) the man was mentally ill, and (c) the police kept the autopsy under wraps as long as they could. I won't hold my breath.
Police officials say no officer was hurt in the incident. The Los Angeles Times has reported that the officers involved in the scuffle with Ford were Asian-American and Latino.
I bet Al Sharpton is flying to L.A. right now and Obama is gearing up for a press conference.
