Gregory Frazier and the 2000 Florida Recount: Our Most Popular Stories This Week

The dominant story this week without a doubt was the shooting of Gregory Frazier by cops in Pompano Beach. Broward Sheriff's Office deputies were responding to call about a domestic disturbance, but by the time BSO arrived, the argument was over. Still, at the end of Frazier's confrontation with the deputies, he had been shot six times in the back, according to neighbors who witnessed the altercation. What exactly happened is still being disputed. Frazier's family and BSO differ on key details.
