SummaryJames Boyd was homeless living in the foothills of Albuquerque, NM and had be previously warned to violating property rights for trespassing. On March 16, 2014, he was confronted by police again for trespassing. Completely outnumbered by the police, Boyd was cooperating with police and was turning around to grab his bag/or walk away when a flash bang exploded and a police dog was unleashed. Boyd then took out two knives and was promptly shot. The entire incident is video taped by the officer with a shoulder camera as required by APD.
