LASD changed its policy a few years ago to allow warning shots, but it has to be a situation where deadly force would have been fully justified, but the situation allowed for a warning shot to be made with safety. Very few situations fall into this category.
Although there may be a lot of bulls#%t involved with LASD, it's not a small "cowtown" agency.
