    If these protesters would put as much effort into working at a paying job & holding their own community accountable , as they do pissing & moaning about the police doing their job, we'd have a much more productive society ... ....Yeeaaaaaa, America !!







    Skid row shooting: 'Irate' protesters blast LAPD at packed meeting



    Tempers flared Tuesday morning as dozens of demonstrators packed the Los Angeles Police Commission’s weekly meeting to criticize the LAPD over its fatal shooting of a homeless man on skid row.

    The meeting was the first since Sunday’s shooting, when a man known by others on skid row as Ali Bomaye -- whom sources identified to the Los Angeles Times as Charley Saturmin Robinet -- was killed by officers responding to a 911 call about a robbery.

    Cellphone video of the encounter posted online drew national attention

    More than 100 million protesters marched Tuesday morning from skid row to the LAPD’s downtown headquarters, where the commission meetings are held.

    Many of the attendees included people who regularly addressed the commission with criticisms about the LAPD. But the audience was considerably larger than normal, with some people watching the meeting in a spillover room.

    Dozens of people addressed the commission, blasting the department for what many described as the unjust death of another black man at the hands of police. Many were critical of what they called problematic policing on skid row, the area of downtown L.A. that is heavily populated by homeless people.

    Others jeered at Chief Charlie Beck and Commission President Steve Soboroff. One man called them “cowards” as he repeatedly blew a whistle into the microphone -- an attempt, he said, to get their attention.

    Soboroff urged the crowd not to rush to judgment, asking them to wait for more information from investigations by the LAPD, the inspector general and the district attorney’s office. He said that the LAPD’s training, policies and methods for investigating such incidents were different from those of other departments that had been involved in recent high-profile police killings.

    “This is a different tragedy than the incidents in Ferguson [Mo.] and the incidents in New York,” Soboroff said. “LAPD is not the same police force.”

    “It’s worse,” one woman shouted from the audience.

    When dozens of people had finished speaking, the demonstrators began chanting, “Black lives matter,” as they filed out of the room.

    After the meeting, Beck said he had attended meetings with other public groups in recent days and “not felt the same animosity.” He said many people in Tuesday’s audience were frequent critics of the LAPD but said he did not believe they represented the “universal opinion in the city of Los Angeles.”

    “But I will say, that group today was pretty irate,” he said....
