>> Dear Editor:
>
>> Here are some questions for the PAPD re the December 25th fatal shooting of a yet unnamed, 31 year-old mentally ill man.
>>
>> (1) When will the PAPD release the names of the officers involved in this fatal shooting, pursuant to the California Public Records Act and California case law?
>>
>> (2) Did dash cams capture the incident? And will the police release the footage to the public, or hide behind an exception to the CPRA to prevent public disclosure?
>>
>> (3) Will this incident lead the PAPD to implement police worn body-cameras, along with a departmental policy requiring public disclosure of the footage obtained?
>>
>> (4) Will the DAs investigation be truly thorough and independent, or simply a rubber stamp of the PAPD's findings?
>>
>> (5) Given that the mental health facility where the shooting occurred, was 3 blocks from the police station, did the PAPD respond with members of their crisis intervention and mental health unit?
>>
>> (6) Since all members of the PAPD are armed with tasers, and tasers are purportedly safe to use in just this type of deadly force situation, why weren't they used before the police discharged their guns?
>>
>> (7) Did the police make any effort to retreat to a safe location before discharging their guns?
>>
>> Sincerely,
>>
>> Aram James

>> Park Street, Redwood City
