Take a close look at this video. An #LAPD officer points a „less than lethal“ rifle directly at this journalist. There appears to be no immediate threat anywhere. Earlier @JamesQueallyLAT is arrested, now another reporter faces the barrel of a gun. @pressfreedom @ACLU_SoCal

Here is the moment @LAPDHQ escorted me out of the crowd and zip tied my hands. I’m turning back and insisting that I promised my newsroom I would protect my crew and identifying the photographers who are with me.

This is the moment @RosenfeldReport and I were nearly kettled. Those on the other end of this line of officers, including our colleagues from the @latimes and @SpecNews1SoCal were improperly detained, zip tied and later released.

Reporters, legal observers cry foul after being caught up in LAPD’s mass arrests at Echo Park protest

They also accused the LAPD of issuing confusing directives and attempting to force media members into a designated observation area that would not have allowed them to see the protest or the arrests that followed.

While some detained reporters and observers were released without being arrested, others — including reporters for less-established media brands — were held for hours and then formally charged, raising additional questions about police picking and choosing which outlets to acknowledge as legitimate.

„Eric, do you really believe that Los Angeles police officers are killers?“ LAPPL board member Jamie McBride said. „The same officers that provide you 24-hour security at your residence 365 days a year?“

During a contentious meeting between LAPD officers and @MRodCD7 , one officer says that if the city is going to cut, it should start by cutting protection details at council members‘ homes (see minute 15:30 or so)

LAPD shot a homeless man in a wheelchair in the face with a „less than lethal“ bullet as he happened to be on a street they were walking down. Man wasnt even protesting. Just sat there.

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. While businesses were looted and buildings were damaged and burned in downtown, Van Nuys and the Fairfax District, activists said protests have been largely peaceful and police have focused most of their attention on arresting demonstrators instead of looters.
