Ezell Ford Shooting Report Says Officers Will Not Be Charged

Hosted by

Eric Garcetti went out the back door of his official Hancock Park home this morning — to avoid protesters against last year's LAPD shooting of Ezell Ford. The Mayor was forced to change vehicles, and police say one woman was thrown to the ground. Garcetti was leaving town, and the group said he should stay for tomorrow's Police Commission hearing on Ford's death. In the LA Times, Joel Rubin has reported that Chief Charlie Beck and Inspector General Alex Bustamante have reached different conclusions about whether two officers were within policy when they drew their weapons, used deadly force — and when they stopped Ford in the first place.
