DA Jackie Lacey: 'I'm Angry Over The Murder Of George Floyd'
Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey is facing sharp criticism from protesters, who say she's done little to hold abusive LAPD officers accountable for their actions.
Today on KPCC's newsroom's public affairs show, AirTalk, Lacey told host Larry Mantle that charging a police officer with a crime is difficult, but demonstrators are right to raise the issue:
"I'm angry over the murder of George Floyd. I'm angry about the fact that so many African American men have been murdered at the hands of police. And I'm doing the absolute best job I can as a human being."
