Fairfax County Virginia’s chief prosecutor has said he will not file criminal charges resulting from the death of Natasha McKenna, the mentally ill woman who died in February after being shot four times with a taser while in police custody. While the decision seemingly puts the case to rest, questions linger over the details of the incident and its ramifications for both mentally ill and unarmed citizens when they encounter law enforcement. We examine the effect this case and others in Fairfax are having on accountability and training for Fairfax law enforcement.
