From [HERE] The families of Los Angeles residents fatally shot by law enforcement officers joined Black Lives Matter organizers Monday outside the downtown Hall of Justice to demand that District Attorney Jackie Lacey prosecute some of those officers.
[Lacey is a Black probot. A probot is a propagandizing programmed robot. A Black probot, mechanically efficient but with no awareness, is a probot programmed in service of white domination. Jackie Lacey has a history of hooking up cops who terrorize Blacks & Latinos. In August she offered a no-jail-time felony plea to a white cop who kicked a Black man's head like a football after a bicycle traffic stop.

After an unlawful stop of Ford and despite inconsistent statements made by cops, Lacey said the cops actions were “legally justified.[MORE] What will be her reward for serving her masters so very well?
Black Lives Matter organizers have posted a petition at www.bity.ly/BLMLA and on the group’s Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites and said they hope to garner 10,000 signatures in the next 30 days.
“Jackie Lacey has not filed charges against a single police officer,” said BLMLA spokeswoman Melina Abdullah, explaining that the group turned out Monday to “convince her to do her job.”
More than 200 deaths have occurred at the hands of law enforcement since Lacey took office in 2012, according to BLMLA, with one organizer putting the number at 268.
Some officers were judged to have acted “out of policy” by their departments and were subject to administration action. In other cases — like the fatal shootings of James Joseph Byrd and Norma Guzman in unrelated incidents in 2015 — the police commission found that officers violated rules about deadly force, though Beck and union officials disagreed.
And shortly after the fatal shooting of 29-year-old Brendon Glenn in Venice in 2015, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said he hadn’t seen circumstances to justify the use of deadly force.
No criminal charges have been filed in any of those cases.
Lacey’s Justice System Integrity Division filed a formal report finding that the officers who shot Guzman acted in lawful self-defense and defense of others. No reports have yet been published on Byrd or Glenn.
In January a coalition of religious and community groups announced it planned to begin a recall effort targeting Lacey over her failures not to prosecute. [MORE]
