Over the summer, we saw civil rights protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. In recent days, several high-profile police incidents have reignited this discussion. The national discussion over civil rights has been wide-ranging and one aspect of that discussion involves the way in which police shootings are investigated/prosecuted. Some argue that the close relationship between local police and district attorneys makes a proper investigation of police conduct difficult. There have been calls for police shootings to be handled through an independent prosecutor that does not normally work with local police. In what came as a surprise to some, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton proposed that his office, the State Attorney General’s Office, investigate police shootings in Texas instead of local district attorneys. Perform further research and arrive at a position. Should investigations of police be handled by an independent prosecutor or should they continue to be handled by local district attorneys? https://www.texastribune.org/2020/06/11/texas-attorney-general-police-misconduct/
