New Mexico - Critics of the Albuquerque Police Department are raising serious questions about the fatal shooting of a homeless camper.

38-year-old James Boyd argued with police for more three hours last Sunday about illegally camping in open space.  
   
Boyd continued to refuse officer commands and began threatening their lives causing officers to open fire.  
   
Boyd had a violent 20-year criminal history including multiple incidents of violence against officers and years of mental health related concerns.
