We speak to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) as he prepares to leave office after four years at the helm.
In August 2013, an unarmed Fairfax man was shot dead by police. After a year with no movement on the investigation, the man’s family are suing the Fairfax County Police Department. The case had been handed to the Justice Department, which says the police department “withheld materials,” and it has now been shifted to the Department’s civil rights division. We explore transparency and law enforcement, and how it fits into the current national conversation around police use of deadly force.
