Black Lives Matter Los Angeles will hold community meeting on DA Jackie Lacey’s failure to prosecute fatal shootings of civilians by police, deputies
LOS ANGELES — Black Lives Matter Los Angeles (BLMLA) activists, supporters and the families of those killed in Los Angeles County by law enforcement will hold a community meeting, Tues., Jan. 23, on Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey’s failure to prosecute officers involved in fatal shootings of civilians.
Since Lacey’s election in 2012, more than 300 residents of L.A. County have been killed by the police or died while in custody. The district attorney’s office has not filed charges against any officer involved in an on-duty shooting in more than 15 years. Lacey hasn’t held a community meeting in South Los Angeles since 2016.
