On Wednesday, August 14th, John Penny was shot by officers of the Los Angeles Police Department, despite the pleas and protests of neighbors and witnesses, essentially because he was both houseless and Black.
Mr. Penny is now being arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department on numerous felony charges for the events of his shooting.
Is this the “community policing” we can expect from Chief Michel Ray Moore?
