The deaths marked the fifth and sixth officer-involved shootings of this year, leading to peaceful and violent protests that have stretched out over two weeks. Both deaths are being investigated by the Orange County district attorney’s office and the U.S. attorney’s office. The FBI has also agreed to looked into the shootings to determine whether or not, if any civil rights violations occurred. The following images were captured on July 29.

We posted on this story earlier, about Albuquerque police officer Daniel Guzman attacking a local NBC news videographer after exchanging some unpleasantries, and it looks like changes are afoot at the APD. It was all caught on tape, and Officer Guzman’s aggression was pretty shocking.
According to the Albuquerque Journal, Police Chief Ray Schultz reviewed the tape and determined mistakes were made. Now, the entire police department will undergo training so that they know how to appropriately respond in such situations.
Lesson #1: Don’t attack journalists while a camera is rolling.
