WASHINGTON — As the roll call of police killings of unarmed black people has grown over the last year, public outrage has split into two, seemingly opposite sides.

“Family Guy” is notorious for its searing satire and no-holds-barred pop culture jabs, but even Patrick Warburton, who voices the paraplegic police officer Joe Swanson on the show, thinks its humor can sometimes cross the line.
