    Slate takes a look at the killing of Ibragim Todashev.

    I hadn't previously read this about the FBI agent:

    The un-redacting of the report also revealed the name of the FBI agent who shot Ibragim—and the Boston Globe then meticulously verified his identity. He was Aaron McFarlane, he was 41 years old, and he had been with the FBI since 2008. Before that, he had been a police officer in Oakland, California. While there, he was accused of falsifying a police report, and the Oakland Police Department was sued twice by former suspects who claimed he had physically assaulted them. The Oakland police settled each of the lawsuits for $32,500, and McFarlane left in 2004, with a lifetime annual pension of $52,000.

    Death of Ibragim Todashev: Why did the FBI kill Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s friend?

    Yet, the FBI's streak of justified shootings goes on.
