[Video] Homeless Man Shot And Killed By Police For Illegal Camping And Police Department Says It's Officers Were Justified!

A homeless New Mexico man who was illegally camping in the Albuquerque foothills was fatally shot by police. 

New helmet camera video released by the Albuquerque Police Department on Friday shows the moment 38-year-old James Boyd turns his back to officers and then gets shot dead. 

Despite overwhelming criticism to the shooting, the department says its officers were justified, KRQE reported. 

Boyd was shot on Sunday, March 16. Police Chief Gorden Eden said officers approached Boyd, who was sleeping, to speak to him about illegally camping in an open space, according to the Albuquerque Journal.
