Call to Action: Join us Tuesday at the LAPD Police Commission
Join us on Tuesday at 8:45am as we continue to build our campaign to expose and confront the Los Angeles Police Commission (LAPC) and their utter failure to address community concerns. On February 24th, the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition delivered aletter to the commission outlining series of concerns and demands for the LAPC to investigate and take corrective action. The Commission responded with complete lack of sensitivity to the issues highlighted in the letter and instead affirmed their full support for LAPD’s actions and programs. This coming from a “Civilian Oversight Body” whose mandate is to represent the interest of the community.
LAPC has made it very clear that their consideration of community input begins and ends at the checking of a box. They regard all nuanced critique of LAPD backed by evidence of corruption and violence, and its alternatives as beyond the realm of respectable discourse.
We hold the commission responsible collectively and each of the 5 commissioners individually for their dismissiveness and hostility toward the community and we will expose them publicly. Their culpability exists not just in the public sphere but in the personal as well–they’ll not just be held to account at LAPD headquarters anymore, but across the city.
