"It's 100 percent clear that they had no idea who was in that vehicle and just lit it up," says attorney Christopher Driscoll.
Driscoll is representing Maggie Carranza, 47, and her mother, 71-year-old Emma Hernandez, the two women who were shot on Thursday, Feb. 7 in Torrance, CA by LAPD officers. The officers were on the hunt for Christopher Dorner, and claim to have mistaken Carranza and Hernandez's truck for Dorner's.
"They had a description of the suspect, they had a description of the suspect's vehicle. The two women obviously do not match that description in any way," Driscoll says.
ReasonTV's Tracy Oppenheimer sat down with Driscoll to discuss how this tragedy could have happened.
"When an officer is injured, or goes down, or is threatened, the team mentality really steps up," Driscoll says, "you have that concern that individual citizens' rights are going to get trampeled when the officers are attempting to get justice for their brothers.
