A small group of protestors has set up camp outside of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti's house in Hancock Park. The demonstration is being organized by the group Black Lives Matter. It comes after reports that the LAPD has decided that two officers were justified in shooting a 25 year old African-American man named Ezell Ford last summer. The LA Police Commission is expected to consider the findings from the LAPD and an inspector general tomorrow, and the protesters say they'll stay at Garcetti's house until then. KCRW's Eric Roy speaks to Kevin Roderick, editor of LA Observed, about the case.
