A week ago, just before midnight on Tuesday, June 12, a young African American man with a history of mental illness was gunned down and killed by eight cops. Twenty shots were fired at Idris Stelley, a 23-year-old college student, in an otherwise empty theater at the Sony Metreon in downtown San Francisco as the movie "Swordfish" played on the screen.
