Police kill suspect live on TV - 03/03/04 02:53 AM

A police chase that turned deadly for the suspect was captured on television news, including the cornering of the suspect, who allegedly threatened police in Santa Monica, Calif., and was shot and killed.

Although the reporter asked the cameraman to pull out of his shot, KABC and four other channels broadcast the man's death as it happened.

The incident has raised questions not only about the ethics of broadcasting police chases, but also the tactics employed by the Los Angeles police
