From my IVN story on this appalling killing of an unarmed manshot in the back by Anaheim police. It speaks volumes that the FBI is already investigating. It usually takes them weeks to get involved in cases like this. This time it was just a couple of days.

Manuel Diaz was shot and killed by Anaheim police on Sat. July 21st. His mother has filed a $50 million wrongful death lawsuit against the police department and city saying her unarmed son was shot from behind then, when he fell to his knees, shot in the back of the head. His death triggered several nights of unrest and near-riots in the southern California city. The FBI is now reviewing the shooting.
