Los Angeles, California – Black Lives Matter activists were met with a gun Monday after trying to meet with the District Attorney of Los Angeles County.
NBC Los Angeles is reporting that a small group of protestors were at the home of Jackie Lacey protesting her handling of various cases. Led by, Melina Abdulla, a professor of Pan-African Studies at California State University. Abdulla released a video of the protesters knocking on Lacey’s door and being confronted by her husband, David, with a pointed cocked pistol
“Get off of my porch,” David said to the protestors repeatedly. “I don’t care who you are, get off of my porch. Right now. We’re calling the police right now,” says David.
Abdulla tries to explain to David that the DA agreed to meet with them, and they were only there to meet with her as she promised. David continued to point his gun with threats of calling the police.
I’m front of DA Jackie Lacey’s house for that community meeting she promised with the @BLMLA crew. Rang her bell to invite her.— Melina Abdullah (@DocMellyMel) March 2, 2020
Her husband pulled a gun, cocked it, pointed it at my chest and said “I’ll shoot you. I don’t care who you are.” @WP4BL @RealJusticePAC @shaunking pic.twitter.com/WtazUWSJIC
DA Jackie Lacey has been apologetic for the encounter and explained that her husband David was only acting out of fear for their safety. Her office has turned it over to another agency to investigate.
