Members of the Socialist Party Los Angeles Local Join the StopLAPD Spying Coalition at the Los Angeles Human Rights Commission Meeting onLAPD Use of Force
On June 3rd, the Los Angeles City Human Relations Commission held a meeting on the LAPD’s use of force and racial profiling. The facility was packed, wall-to-wall. Community members were given little time to address the HRC, and roughly three-quarters of the way through the meeting, the twenty foot space separating the attendees from the HRC was taken over by the community, paving the way for a free-flowing discussion. Three members of the Human Relations Commission stayed to hear stories of life under LAPD rule. This was the first in a series of meetings the HRC is holding with the city of Los Angeles.
