Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder created a video game to determine how race figures into police shootings. The results of the study found a "hierarchy of bias," in which blacks were targeted by police the most, then Latinos, and then whites. The study also found a positive bias toward Asians. CU psychology professor Joshua Correll co-wrote the study. He speaks with Ryan Warner.
