The embattled Albuquerque Police Department is buying 350 AR-15 assault rifles at the same time the Department of Justice is conducting an investigation of the department for excess use of deadly force. The DOJ began its investigation after a series of brutal confrontations by the police force with the city’s homeless population and other residents, and many are using the inquiry as reason to oppose the purchase of the $1,000 weapons. RT’s Manila Chan discusses this latest development with civil rights attorney Shannon Kennedy.
