Advocates sue LAPD over protest tactics, alleging disabled homeless man was shot in face with rubber bullets

Protests over the death of Floyd, who was killed while in Minneapolis police custody on May 25, have led to unrest that Los Angeles has not seen since the 1992 riots sparked by the acquittal of four LAPD officers in the beating Rodney King.

What L.A. could do with its $1.8 billion police budget

The LAPD will receive a $120 million increase in funding under Garcetti’s budget, which was adopted by default Monday after the City Council declined to review it by the June 1 deadline.

If you added up the budgets for housing, streets, and transportation, then tripled the sum, it still would not match the city’s LAPD budget.

Protesters and some civil liberties activists have slammed the police tactics as unacceptable. And even city leaders admit there have been problematic incidents and have called for investigations and reforms based on what has emerged.

Mayor Eric Garcetti said the LAPD would reduce the use of foam rounds after many complaints from protesters who were hit by the projectiles.
