“Los Angeles probably regrets hosting this virtual town hall.
Members of the public expressed their anger with the Los Angeles Police Department and called on Chief Michel Moore to resign during a heated public comment section of a Police Commission meeting that came after days of protests throughout the city.
The Los Angeles Police Commission on Tuesday held its first meeting since the start of the civil unrest across the city over the in-custody death of George Floyd, as well as incidents of police brutality by the city. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the meeting was held virtually and people were asked to join via Zoom or dial in.
Black Lives Matter’s Los Angeles chapter, which helped organize the protests, urged followers to call in. And hundreds did, unleashing their anger at the chief and frustration with how the department has responded to the protests.
