Black Lives Matter Los Angeles promoted and organized a march today in partnership with BLD PWR to protest L.A. District Attorney, Jackie Lacey's record when it comes to prosecuting cases involving LAPD officers.

The organization announced the protest yesterday via Twitter, with this message: "LET'S HOLD JACKIE LACEY AND THE KILLER COPS SHE'S PROTECTING ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE MURDERS IN OUR COMMUNITY."

The protest began at 3 p.m. in front of the Hall of Justice, where Lacey's office is.
