Mayor Garcetti Facing Heat over His Schedule

Hosted by

When protesters against the LAPD's killing of a mentally ill black man gathered outside Mayor Eric Garcetti's Hancock Park mansion, he went out the back door. They caught up with him when he got to his car, demanding that he address the issue. He rolled down the window and said he was catching a plane to Washington, DC to help the city find money. It turned out that Garcetti's visit to Washington wasn't all about city business, as we hear from Peter Jamison, who covers the Mayor for the LA Times.
